When I disassemble for cleanup, the basket is very difficult to get out of the bucket part. Any tips?


The basket may have cut into the hex shape top of the spindle creating little grooves which
the basket locks into. If that's the case you have to replace the part, it's called the impeller.
If you can purchase one from Omega, use a needle nose pliers to remove the flat hold down
washer/nut on top of the motor spindle, pull off the old impeller and push on the new. Line
it up correctly it only installs in one position. The impeller is the flat rotating part that the
basket sits on. I did it on my Acme but had to push a little for them to sell me one.

How do you take it apart to clean it ?


It's really easy, you take down the metal bar and the top comes off, then you should see the orange mesh basket which is removed using your little tool - it's like a key which you turn to remove the basket - rinse under the tap - piece of cake.

Do not know how to remove basket


(1) Remove the food plunger and top cover; (2) unscrew the 3 screws from the blade/cutter plate and lift it off its base; (3) Unscrew the plastic base COUNTERWISE and lift it off of the center spindle; (4) Now you can remove the basket and juice bowl for cleaning.

To reassemble, reverse the process.

How does it come apart for cleaning


The hot water did work for mine. Here is the solution I discovered:

After removing the food plunger and juicer cover: (1) Unscrew the 3 screws that hold the cutting blade plate in the center of the basket and lift off the cutting blade plate; (2) Unscrew the base counterclockwise (it will unscrew from the threaded center piece) and lift it up; (3) Lift off the basket and juice bowl. Now you can clean the basket and juice bowl.

Cleaning my juicer


Generally you will have good luck with this item - however after using it for a while here is the problem people are stating in other reviews. You cannot get the basket our for cleaning. Unfortunately there are no instructions or troubleshooting or anything on the manufacturer's website for fixing this..

Here's the problem...There are 3 little captured balls on the basket that engage into holes into the juicer to hold it into place when you load it. The problem is that over time - the balls get juice in them. Then you store the thing with the basket locked into the juicer. Then from sitting in your cupboard - the juice dries and the balls are stuck. When they get very sticky they do not float in their cavity they are stuck. Then after you juice the next time - you cannot get basket off. basket is stuck and you will destroy the juicer if you try to pry it out with excessive force.
If you have this problem and you are lucky enough to be reading this - I have figured out the fix on my own...

You need to fill up a large tupperware, rubbermaid, whatever - bowl about 3 inches deep with hot water. Then take the juicer with the clear cover off and flip it upside down and into the hot water. Make sure the water is covering the entire basket area, but not so deep it goes into the motor area. I let it soak for about 3 hours, but I don't think you will need to do it for that long. When I took it out of the water I was able to pry the basket out with very little force. This is when I discovered this flawed design with the balls. Now I rinse the little ball bearings really good after using and dont store it connected. Then before connecting the basket to the juicer rinse the little bearings and push them in to make sure they are freed up before each use.

I used it probably for a year or so about 40 or 50 times without this issue, but let it sit for about 4 months - which is why I believe it caused these balls with juice in them to get so frozen I couldn't remove it.

Good luck. It worked for me.. this should work for you!

How to take apart


I hate to admit my wife was right:  "Don't get it.  It's too cheap.  You get what you pay for!"  Gaads, I hate to admit this THIS time, she might have been right!  I am going back to play with it to see if I can figure it out!  There's gotta be a way to clean it!  Otherwise, it is just a salmonella breeding laboratory!  
Oh-oh!  I just found it - (after I cut one of my fingers on the cutters looking for access!)  Here is the answer:

1.  Do NOT turn the basket/cutter part.  
Just because there is a knurl on the cutter basket doesn't mean we put our hands on it -- yet!
2.  Turn the entire TOP in which the cutters nest approximately 60-90 degrees CLOCKWISE.
3.  Lift the entire plastic assembly straight up.
4.  The cutter basket will now separate from the plastic top.

Good luck -- and don't cut yourself, unless the taste of your own blood excites you!
