Question about Samson Juicers

1 Answer

Bought a Samson juicer model DO-9001 in UK and brought it back home to Montenegro (we're British but live most of the year in ME). In UK, plugged it in and it worked. Here, plugged it in and it worked for about 1 to 2 seconds then stopped. Tried the spare fuse, and it did the same thing. Neither fuse looks burnt out. Label on underside says it's rated for European voltages 220 - 240, so that should be ok. Voltage out here is more variable than in western Europe, but is more likely to be lower than higher, so that should only make the machine run more slowly, if my memory of such technical stuff is correct. The UK distributer will take the machine back, but that means a long delay and extra cost in shipping it back. Also it is not certain that we would get a replacement safely back out here - customs and the like are not necessarily secure! Any ideas as to get it to work properly?

The voltage in montenegro is supposed to be 220 V so you would expect it to work there. You need to get a continuity tester or multi metre and check the fuse for continuity. The fact that it ran for one or two seconds on both fuses and didn't run again would suggest that the fuses are blown. If the voltage is more variable there it's likely that even though it's lower than in the UK it spikes higher and the spikes blow the fuse. If the fuses have blown what you need is a voltage regulator to stabilise your power supply, though I'm not sure if it's worth the cost to you. Also if you're buying a voltage regulator you need to make sure that it's capable of supplying higher power, in amps or watts, than your juicer draws. That should be written on the juicer. There's a 1000 watt regulator on ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/1000W-Voltage-Regulator-Converter-Transformer-220V-230V-/370350046379?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item563a953cab so you know what you're looking for. (Watts = Voltage multiplied by Amps if you need to convert and Amps = Watts divided by Voltage so the 1000 watt regulator provides 1000 divided by 220 which is 4.5 Amps.)

    There's another possibility of why the fuse might blow. The voltage in montenegro is 220v compared to 230v in the UK. To use the same amount of power when the voltage is lower the juicer would draw extra current. For a 10 volt difference at 1000 watts (1Kw) the difference would only be 0.2 amps. However if the voltage is unstable as you say and drops to 200v this would cause it to draw 0.4 amps. If the juicer has a higher power rating e.g. 2000 Watts this would increase the current drawn to 0.8 amps. Normally a fuse is rated higher, in amps, than the current drawn. You need to check the watts used by the juicer which should be written on it. Then check the fuse rating. This is in volts, which should be ok, and Amps. If the amps are within 2 to 3 amps of the amount required for the juicer you need a stronger fuse, one with a higher Amp rating.

    You could just get a fuse that's 2 to 3 amps higher and test it if you're not happy with the maths. Or else give me the watts rated for the juicer and the amp rating of the fuse.

Look toward the bottom of this page to see the names of the pieces. You're probably referring to a nozzle and the drum cap.
