  • Exert inward and downward pressure to extract juice. Exert inward and downward pressure to extract juice.

Grayish or streaky juice

  • The juicer attachment housing has an "oil impregnated" copper bearing that can produce an oily discharge when it becomes warm.
  • The oil will be present in the juice and cause it to appear grayish or streaky.
  • The oil is FDA approved, so it will not harm the consumer if ingested.

Squeaking while in use

  • Occasionally while in use, the JE will make a squeaking/ squealing sound.
  • This sound is most often caused by putting too much pressure against the reamer while holding the fruit to the unit.
  • This causes the parts of the JE to press against each other, causing a squeaking/ squealing sound.
    • Lessen the pressure against the reamer.
