Hi I had the same problem yesterday and emailed Champion Juicer about the problem here's their reply below, his suggestion worked.
Your machine is equipped with a magnetic start system which will only allow
the machine to start when you have the screenholder all the way in place
just as you would have it to start juicing. If you do not have any parts on
the machine it will not start. Please assemble it again and give it a try.
If it still wont start call me at 209-369-2154 for further assistance.

It could mean burnt motor, but it could mean that it's simply got gunk in it, and it needs cleaning/lubricating. You'd have to take it apart to tell. A burnt motor has a very specific smell. If you take it apart, and there's no burnt smell, likely cleaning and lubricating will fix it.
There may be an overload switch somewhere on the unit, it will just be a small button projecting from the underside most probably or in a small hole. If there is, just depress it. If the unit actually burned out yu would have seen smoke and smelled it.
The stainless bar should be on the correct slots on top of the juicer.
It has a safety switch on those bars. Smell the motor from under the
juicer, it should not smell like burnt. Press hard on the switch, it
might be loose.

I used needle nose pliers, it took a bit of patience but I got the screws out. I think I might replace them with regular screws. My juicer does not run either. Let me know if you find the problem with yours.
ok dark? and no cracks or leakage from the juice container? hmm
dark .... ...its gotta be juice leaking down and mixing with the dark grease they use on the bearings.. but this is a wild guess. and i cant think of anything else unless a 100 roaches live inside the motor housing. get it fixed when it starts to whine or smoke.
