Cutting Blade won't come off

The spinning blade in the middle that screws down on the pulp filter will not come off. I have tried to use the little orange gadget that fits into the two holes, but it won't even budge.

I do not have a tool so I used two pen tops, turned the blade counterclockwise while ensuring the filter basket stayed put. It worked well

Pulp is building up, not ejecting properly


When juicing with the champion juicer take it slow. You need to hold down the tamper for three to five seconds in-between reloading the chute. Otherwise it will begin to back up through the chute and the juicer will begin to heat up. Happy juicing! LivingaHealthyandHappyLife.com

My Omega 1000 is 10 yrs old, but I've only been using it regularly for 1 yr and 3 months. Putting a carrot through isn't stabilizing it anymore. It takes off when the screen is 1/2 full. But the weirdest...


Yes the blade is hitting it when the juicer vibrates
severely. I have an Acme, 21 years old, and found
very difficult to control vibration especially with a
new shredder blade. If you are handy this is what
to do. Order a new cover from omega, cover design
has changed so you will need the plunger also. This
may sound incorrect, but you will have to use a small
file to file down the cutting burrs on the blade a fraction
of an inch. Then with the juicer fully assembled, unlock
the set screw on the center of the bottom and turn it
clockwise until the chute contacts the blade then back
it off a half turn. Now the chute to blade gap is set
correctly. In filing down the burrs you make the blade
a little duller but you also narrow the gap and feed
the produce through more slowly and evenly. This
comes from 21 years of using this machine. With
a new blade I could not control the vibration no matter
how I fed the thing. If this sounds a bit too much get
rid of the Omega and try the pulp ejecting type. The
Miracle MJ1000 is a nice little juicer for about $130.

When we juice, it turns and moves across the counter


Both the Omega and Acme juicers vibrate no matter what you do. I found a worn shredder
blade actually produces less vibration. However this involves filing the cutting burrs down
and resetting the blade to chute gap. If you're up to it, take the blade out and file each row
of burrs about halfway down. Then with the juicer fully assembled, unlock the set screw on
the center of the bottom, turn it clockwise until the chute contacts the blade, and back it off
a half turn. The set screw actually raises and lowers the motor spindle. Both companies
would not agree with this, but this solution comes from operating my 21 year old Acme.
I recently replaced the blade and the juicer immediately began tap dancing. Went back to
the old blade.

How to clean the Jack LaLane Juicer?


the blade can be removed possibly with your hands, if you can manage to turn it, if not then find something that will fit into those little holes of the blade to turn it, and then take it apart, but remember in what order. to put it together: the grey thing with the spout attached goes on first, then the orange basket, then the blade, but don't turn it too tight, just look for the indicator marks and line them up with the arrows, then the black lid, and then the pulp basket.make sure that the black lid in the back, goes INTO the pulp collector, it is not very far, but if it is not done like this, then your machine will not work. then you raise and lock the bar into place and put the pusher into the feeding tube. hope that helps.

Shuts itself off when juicing


FIRST DUMP THE FILTERS, THEY DECREASE YIELD AND MAY CAUSE MORE VIBRATION.
IF JUICER SHUTS DOWN PUSH RESET BUTTON ON BOTTOM. THIS TYPE OF JUICER DOES
NOT EJECT PULP AND REQUIRES SOME TIME TO MASTER. FEED THE STUFF SLOW AND
STEADY. WANT A GOOD JUICE? TRY 1 APPLE, 2 CARROTS, 2 CELERY AND A HALF LEMON.
IF YOU ARE REALLY BRAVE YOU CAN FINISH OFF BY SLOWLY POURING 6 OR 8 OUNCERS
OF WATER RIGHT DOWN THE CHUTE. THIS NOT ONLY DILUTES BUT LEECHES MORE JUICE
OUT OF THE PULP. JUICE SHOULD BE DILUTED AND DRANK SLOWLY.

Acme juicer #6001, has a new blade, becomes unbalanced...


Hello, First, make sure the screw on clamp that holds the blade down is centering the blade correctly. Also make sure it tightens down firmly against the blade. Wiggle the blade to ensure it is mounted securely. If this doesn' fix it try your old blade again. If your old blade works you may have a bad, unbalance blade but I would suspect he screw on clamp knob may be somewhat worn and not securing the blade causing it to run "out of round" when a piece of vegetable pushes on it. If everything looks good with both blades and the blade securing knob it could be a worn bearing on the juicer. Try wiggling the motor shaft and see if there is any play in it. I have an ACME 6001 that is quite old so I wouldn't suspect the bearings are going. One other thing, does the bowl take 3 to 5 minutes to stop spinning when you shut off the motor? If it does then the shaft and bearing are probalby ok

Good luck with it...gary

Cant grt it apart to clean


Take off the top part of the juicer that has the chute. You will see the blade and basket. The blade appears to be attached to the basket with three small screws but is actually screwed onto the basket by a large screw that protrudes out of the basket underneath the blade. So the trick is to unscrew the blade, turning it to the left by using maybe a small screwdriver that you will have to put into one of the two small holes that are on the blade surface and pushing the blade to the left. This should loosen the blade and then you can just unscrew the blade off the basket. Once you get that blade off, the rest of the juicer comes apart. The newer models come with a little tool with a couple of arms that go down into those holes and loosen the top. Good luck.
