Acme 6001 Juice Extractor Questions & Answers
Hi I have an older acme supreme juicerator, model
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.
My juicerator will not run with the stainless

When I start juicing, the machine works
It's going out of balance like a washing machine with the clothes
on one side during the spin cycle. I've had mine for 20 years and
have not completely mastered the balance problem. Just try to
feed produce as slowly and as evenly as you can. If it really starts
to vibrate too badly, turn it off immediately or the blade will jump
and cut the feed chute.
Acme juicer vibrating so much.
I've had one for 21 years and when I replaced the blade the same thing happened.
The blade is not supposed to be held firmly in place so it can slip intentionally to
minimize vibration. If you bought the juicer new, think back, and I believe you will
remember the vibration problem. I seems with a worn blade they vibrate less. The
motor is very durable and uses roller bearings like on a skate board. I went back
to the old blade, which I sharpen with a drill using a small bit.
