Question about Omega 1000 Juice Extractor

1 Answer

My lid doesn't seem to fit properly. When I put the top on to cover the screen, it doesn't seem to fit together properly-- the bottom of the chute that you throw the fruit and veggies down butts right up against the blade, not allowing it to spin. Is there a possibility the wrong lid was put on this model? are there lids with shorter chutes? am i missing something obvious? please help!! thank you!! Mine is the seemingly older model w/ the blue lable and stainless steel top.

Is this a new cover? There is an adjustment. On the bottom of the machine, dead center,
there is an adjustment screw with a locking nut. Unlock the nut and the turn the screw
counter clockwise, this will lower the motor shaft and consequently the blade. Once you
have clearance and install the cover, turn the screw clockwise until the blade contacts the
chute, back it off a half turn and lock her down. This will establish the correct gap between
the chute and blade. Also if your chute is ever chipped or scored by the blade because
of excessive vibration, you can file the chute level and readjust the gap.

Items to be juiced must be cut to size and fed through the feed chute. The machine will not operate if the cover is not properly in place.

Pulp is building up, not ejecting properly


When juicing with the champion juicer take it slow. You need to hold down the tamper for three to five seconds in-between reloading the chute. Otherwise it will begin to back up through the chute and the juicer will begin to heat up. Happy juicing! LivingaHealthyandHappyLife.com

Believe it can be done. You might have to file or shave the new arm a little then seat it as best
as possible and tap it in place with a screw driver and hammer. If you do manage to attach
the new arm and the fit is a little too snug when you latch down the cover, file the upper tip
of the arm for a little more tolerance. Also, believe it or not, a worn blade will produce less
vibration. There is a set screw bottom center. With the juicer fully assembled, unlock it,
turn it clockwise until feed chute contacts the shredder blade and back it off a half turn.
You now have the proper gap between the chute and blade.

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.

Hi I have an older acme supreme juicerator, model # 11je23. Do the newer baskets & lids fit this older model? Or can a guy get original parts?


Believe the basket is the same. The newer lids have a flange
around them which can be filed down. Takes time, but file away
tapering it until it fits in the juice bowl. With a new lid you may
have to adjust the chute to blade gap. On bottom loosen center
locking nut and turn adjusting screw clockwise until chute contacts
blade, then back it off a half turn and lock it down. A few older lids
are around, but it's hit and miss.
