View Full Version : juicer stuck!
04-26-2010, 10:41 PM
Anyone ever push in the chute on the juicer in the wrong angle and get it jammed in there? I have one that is mostly round put the one side is flat and I didn't line up the flat side if the chute with the flat side of the pusher thing. I think I can't get it unstuck! I tried PAM, soap, pulling, pushing.
Kind of miss making juice but for the life of me I can't get it out. Trying to patiently figure it out before I ask my brother who might break it by pulling too hard...
Hmm - I would try putting it in ice water and maybe that might get it loose. I might try oil as well, I know you tried Pam - but I think oil would be oilier (is that a word??) *Ü*

Will try oil, too. Didn't know about ice water. Thank you so much.
I have all this kale and stuff I want to juice in the AM. Wouldn't it figure the week I get into juicing and have the stuff ready to go, I do this.
Well - I just remember that when you have 2 glass glasses stuck together you can put them down into ice water and then (if my memory serves) put hot water in the top glass? it's a contraction/expansion thing... worth a try at least.
It's not hard to get 2 plastic things stuck together like that! I hope something works for you and you get them unstuck. *Ü*
Did you get it unstuck :D

So, I stuck the stuff (both pieces duh...as you know, since they were stuck to each other) in the freezer and all it did was freeze the PAM and oil got cold and gel-ly. So, yeah I figured the contraction thing was logical but I couldn't clean the gunk off first, so I ended up with cold metal and gunky food particles.
I caved and called my brother, but secretly it was because I had lots of garbage I needed help to carry out since I cleaned the fridge and threw out old spoling fruits.
He ended up twisting and pulling for a whole 15 seconds, so I let him make juice while he was here with fruit I bought. He liked it and was shocked....after, of course, he finished throwing a pit in and jamming the motor. I fixed that myself since he can't fix anytiing mechanical or build anything.
Even my niece drank the carrot, kale, apple, raspberry combo....and she kept asking for more. We started with a small gargle dixie cup thing and she had a lot of it. Her mom who hates vegetables except for corn and shrugged and said it was good for her, but she wasn't about to drink leaves.
IN the end, juicer fixed! Thanks for asking and for the help.
Oooh - well, what a little adventure you had!
I'm glad it ended so well though and no broken parts - heehee! No more pit juicing.... *Ü*
