We had the same problem, and we took the thing apart, unscrewed the cork from the corkscrew and put it back together. You have to make sure you line everything up properly inside, though. There are contact points that need to be lined up on the inside.

    Or -use a screwdriver (or whatever) to push the inner ring at the opening as far inside the appliance as you can. It is a black piece with a spring action that has plastic molded ridges inside. The ridges on the inner edge of this will grasp the cork. Then, while you are holding the inner section in place as far inside as possible, push the button to operate the opener and the cork should come out as it normally should. I had half a cork stuck up there, and this just worked perfectly.

I used a long tweezers -- about 1 ft long. I held the cork in place, then pressed the reversed button. It came right out.

Thanks for the advice and it worked for me too! I didn't have any long tweezers, so I used chopsticks, haha! It actually worked!

Use a long thin tool and place it in the stuck cork. Hold the tool sturdy with one hand and press the reverse button on the opener. The cork will start to come out. This happened with me on the third bottle I opened. It was quite easy.

Oster electric wine opener wont pull out corks. Half of the cork, or part gets stuck up in the unit. Has always worked fine up until day before yesterday. Is is shot? Or cork puller not sharp anymore?


You need to replace the battery pack, pull it out and see what type of cells are used, then build a new battery pack, did this on my own opener and wow it really rocks, lots of power.

Cork stuck in sharper image wine opener


The black plastic ring is secured on the clear tube that you can see the corkscrew through with four little plastic snap tabs. I used a pair of channel locks to gently pull the ring off those tabs. Once you do that you have access to the inside of the clear tube and can reverse the corkscrew and get your broken cork out. Blow debris out and reassemble. Good as new! Even if you break one tab it should still hold, and if you break multiples use some super glue to hold it in place, that will be your last chance to fix it, but at least you've doubled the life of your toy. Good luck!

Food network electric wine opener will not open


Take a look at this review and see if you are missing something in its use. Basically, put in charger base, connect transformer to the mains and charge for 8 hours. Remove the foil from the bottle top, put the wine opener on top of the bottle and press the button.

Waring wine opener wont pull out cork


We learned that NONE of these electric wine openers like the new "plastic" corks. Take a needle nosed plyers and hold the cork tightly(as it sits inside the housing) and gently push the button to release the cork. it should work.
