Can anyone tell me how to replace the body/hub combo on the Champion Juicer 2000? It's a newish model. I don't understand the instructions that came with the parts. It starts by saying, "it requires a one-quarter type socket wrench to remove the motor thru bolts from the old assembly." The only bolts I see are on the underside of the machine...are those the ones they mean? I start by taking the bottom off?
After reading your initial post and responding...yes, take a 1/4" socket wrench and loosen the four bolts at the other end of the motor. The hub will come off easily. If you have ot replace the oil seal, I have not figured out how to do that yet. I beleive the replacement hub has a new oil seal already installed. hope this helps

The stainless steel shaft might have misaligned from the motor bushing due to the fall. But, It would be risky if you tried to open the motor assembly and realign it by yourself, a service man is usually the experts on this.
You can try first to lubricate the shafting with an oil and try to rotate it and see if it moves freely.
You can also inspect if the seal from the shafting is not broken. better replace it if you found one.
The bearing also is most like to be damaged and will need to be replaced.
Championjuicer.com sells replacement switches. Order the oil seal and o-ring too to save on shipping. Newer models have a safety cut off that does not allow the juicer to turn on unless all parts are properly positioned.
Do not use WD40. Wear heavy leather work gloves. Lightly tap two flathead screwdrivers positioned opposite each other to initially pry the blade apart from the main body of the juicer. Alternate tapping on the screwdrivers until some of the shaft is exposed. Tilt the juicer towards the blade and drizzle olive oil on to the exposed shaft. Every few hours return juicer to stable upright position and use a hammer to lightly tap a screwdriver positioned at an angle that will not gouge the shaft. Rotate blade manually and tap in different positions. Keep juicer tilted towards blade in between tapping attempts to allow oil to penetrate shaft opening. Continue drizzling olive oil on shaft as it is exposed. Cutter may need replacement after this procedure. Use steel wool to thoroughly clean shaft. Soak Cutter blade in hot soapy water for two days.
I'm having the same problem, the blank screen just doesn't fit the main body that well (I think the body on mine may have been warped by someone putting it in the dishwasher). Since I'm only going to be using my Champion as a front-end for a hydraulic press, I bought some food-grade silicone sealant (from McMaster-Carr or EMI Supply) and I'm just going to permanently attach the blank screen to the juicer body and slide the screen holder over that. There's a new O-ring for the back where the body attaches to the motor that might be needed as well.
This is a response I received from Champion Juicer- I am amazed at how fast they responded. His solution is below-
To remove the cutter from the Champion Juicer motor shaft, take two small screwdrivers and place them between the back side of the cutter and the stainless steel portion of the hub. Apply pressure on the screwdrivers and the cutter should begin to slide forward. When driving the screwdrivers in, make sure they are spaced far enough apart so they don't damage the motor shaft which is located in the center of the cutter. If the cutter does not come off, leave the screwdrivers in place and insert something under the rear of the Champion Juicer (like a book) to elevate the rear of the machine, thus allowing the cutter to tilt forward. Apply penetrating oil between the screwdrivers. Because the cutter is now angles forward the oil will run inside the cutter. If this is done for several days the cutter will come off by applying more pressure to the screwdrivers. By merely pulling on the screwdrivers you will have to use a plastic hammer and slowly tap on each of the screwdrivers until the cutter breaks free. Tap one screwdriver, and when it is snug, tap on the other screwdriver until the cutter breaks free. When this is done there will always be one screwdriver coming loose and falling out of the slot. Do not rush the removal process; give the oil a chance to work. It is possible the hub and cutter will be damaged during the removal process. Contact us for current replacement prices. Once the cutter has been removed you should polish the motor shaft to remove any film or burrs which may have developed. If you contact us with your address we will mail you a piece of fine emory cloth to polish the motor shaft at no charge. You should always apply a slight film of olive oil on the motor shaft to prevent sticking of the cutter. Do not use other oils, as they tend to break down from the heat during operation of the juicer.

Hi I had the same problem yesterday and emailed Champion Juicer about the problem here's their reply below, his suggestion worked.
Your machine is equipped with a magnetic start system which will only allow
the machine to start when you have the screenholder all the way in place
just as you would have it to start juicing. If you do not have any parts on
the machine it will not start. Please assemble it again and give it a try.
If it still wont start call me at 209-369-2154 for further assistance.
