The juicer is working and extracting the juice. After about 3/4 to a full 8 oz glass of juice, the juicer trips off. After a few moments I hit the reset button, and it continues to spin for about a minute or less and it trips off again. The pulp basket is hardly full and the juicer functions normal, no vibration etc.
PS: I check for possible overheating, but I do not feel any warm or hot surfaces or smell anything.
Why is the juicer tripping off so often?

Re: The reset button
IT'S THE RESET BUTTON AND THEY ARE ADJUSTABLE. REMOVE 4 SCREWS UNDER JUICER TO REMOVE BOTTOM. YOU CAN GET AT THE RESET BUTTON HOUSING AND ADJUST THE SMALL SCREW EITHER WAY. YOU WILL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHICH DIRECTION. CLOCKWISE OR COUNTER. IT YOU GET IT WRONG IT WILL CUT OUT MORE FREQUENTLY SO JUST GO THE OTHER WAY.

Make sure it is assembled correctly and the latch arms snap shut completely without any undue force. Also on the bottom of the juicer there should be a reset button that might have tripped, just push it in. Other wise give Omega a call.
If you mean green leafy greens, the juicer is not really designed for them. A sharp blade will extract some juice from them, but I found a new blade seems to increase the vibration issue. Acme works best on carrots, apples, celery, etc.
I have a 1962 manual which might be too old but here's what it says: When juicing is completed, simply remove the spring-clamp top, unscrew the wing nut or spring clutch that holds down the cutter blade, and all parts to be cleaned may be lifted from the base. Bowl and top, being non-porous, similar to glass, require only rinsing. Blade should be washed under running water, using a stiff brush. Since the basket is made of stainless steel, it, too, cleans easily. After taking out the the pulp, let cold water run on the outside of the basket while you brush the perforated section. Any remaining particles of pulp will be loosened and can be removed with a damp sponge or by rinsing. Dry and reassemble for next use. Turn machine on and let run a few seconds. Hope this is of some help.
There is a reset button on the bottom of the juicer. You will have to separate the base by removing the 4 bottom screws and adjust the sensitivity of the reset button turning the small screw on it. Sorry, but forgot which direction increases or decreases this. Had to do it on my 21 year old Acme because of the same problem.
FIRST DUMP THE FILTERS, THEY DECREASE YIELD AND MAY CAUSE MORE VIBRATION. IF JUICER SHUTS DOWN PUSH RESET BUTTON ON BOTTOM. THIS TYPE OF JUICER DOES NOT EJECT PULP AND REQUIRES SOME TIME TO MASTER. FEED THE STUFF SLOW AND STEADY. WANT A GOOD JUICE? TRY 1 APPLE, 2 CARROTS, 2 CELERY AND A HALF LEMON. IF YOU ARE REALLY BRAVE YOU CAN FINISH OFF BY SLOWLY POURING 6 OR 8 OUNCERS OF WATER RIGHT DOWN THE CHUTE. THIS NOT ONLY DILUTES BUT LEECHES MORE JUICE OUT OF THE PULP. JUICE SHOULD BE DILUTED AND DRANK SLOWLY.
