Question about Juicers
I have been given an electric centrifugal juice extractor without an instruction manual. It is the usual basic design - above the motor sits a broad cone with tiny knives set onto its flat base, food fed into this down a chute in the cover, juice and dross separated into 2 containers. It works very well. The problem is releasing the cone from the drive slots it sits into. It becomes jammed; there does not appear any release button, and twisting or levering it threatens to break the rim. There must be some simple technique for it?
Look at the dismantling and cleaning procedure in JE95XL Juice Fountain Plus user manual on Page 14 and 15. Procedure is the same with JE900.
This is what manual doesn't tell you: clean the 3 spring loaded pins on the side of the motor clutch. Sugar and pulp may get inside and seize them when dries up, thus making very hard to separate the basket/cutter from the clutch.

Feed a celery stick into it as the last item and see if this helps.
