Question about Omega 1000 Juice Extractor

1 Answer

My Omega 1000 goes off balance and makes a noise like it is going to blow up so I have to end of turning it off. It doesn't do this all the time but it is getting more frequent. This happens with any vegatable I may be juicing expecially carrots.

Yours and everyone else's. Best solution is to get a pulp ejecting type juicer.
I have a 21 year old Acme and know how to maintain and adjust it. Even
then I have vibration issues.

My omega 1000 juicer won't turn on - I just bought it today.

Make sure it is assembled correctly and the latch arms snap shut completely
without any undue force. Also on the bottom of the juicer there should be a
reset button that might have tripped, just push it in. Other wise give Omega
a call.

The entire unit is vibrating so badly that it sounds like a stump grinder.

This is the nature of your machine, it does not eject the pulp, so it will tend to
go out of balance. Stay away from soft stuff like oranges. Watched a guy on
you tube demonstrating an Omega 1000, essentially the same as Acme, and
he had a hard time with the vibration. Nothing softer than apples and try to feed
it continuously (no gaps), slowly and evenly. Good luck.

After juicing just a few fruits and vegetables the machine start jumping all over the counter and vibrating really fast.

There is no solution. These juicers do not eject the pulp and go out of balance very easily.
Don't feel bad, I've seen you tube videos where the demonstrator couldn't keep it under
control. If you are unable to master it, consider a pulp ejecting or masticating type juicer.

After juicing a few carrots[some of which were cut on a slant], or several spinach clusters, the machine seems to get off balance and begins shaking violently and making a racket at which point I have to...

There's nothing wrong. These juicers do not eject the pulp and go out of balance very
easily. If you continue to have problems you may have to go for a different type of juicer.
The Hurom or Omega VRT, expensive, look good if you're really into juicing.

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.

I cannot remove the broken latch arm on my Omega 1000 Juice Extractor to replace it with a new latch arm. I have tried to follow vague instructions on the web, but I cannot remove it. Thanks.

It's a real pain and even bigger pain to snap the new one in place. Best way to do it is remove
the 4 screws, not the center one, and separate the base. You will then have access to the
latch arm from within, but remember how everything goes back together again.

I got my two new latch arms because they broke off the old omega 1000 only the battom grip goes the top goes in just a little bit how do i get it all the way in

Don't think they are an exact fit like the old ones.
Might have to file it down a little and tap it in with
a flat screwdriver. Also once installed if its a little
snug fitting over the cover file the tip down till it
slides over the cover lip easily.

I got the latch arms for my omega 1000 juicer but only the bottom goes in how do i get top part in

With some difficulty. Sometimes replacement latch arms are not an exact fit for
older models. You may have to file them down a bit so they will snap in place.
Also make sure the fit at the cover is not too snug or else the arm will break again.
Removing the 4 screws on the bottom and separating the base will give you a better
view on what has to be done.
