All parts, except the motor base, are dishwasher safe. If hand-washing, wash all removable parts in warm soapy water immediately after each use. Use the included cleaning brush to clean hard-to-reach places, and remove excess residue. Use the end of the cleaning brush to clear any buildup left over after juicing from the pulp spout and filter mesh. Use the bristle side of the cleaning brush to clean the auger and body of the filter. To clean the motor base, unplug and wipe with a clean, damp cloth. NOTE: DO NOT add water to the feed chute while the unit is operating to clean the unit.
Ensure that you press and HOLD the REVERSE button. While pressing and holding REVERSE, there will be a beep and a brief pause (3-5 secs), then the auger will rotate in the opposite direction. Release REVERSE to stop. Repeat as needed. Press START/STOP to resume normal operation.
The unit was overloaded with ingredients. Wait 2 minutes, then press START/STOP to resume juicing.

See the Juicing 101 Chart in the IG or QSG for other helpful prep tips.
No, do not use frozen fruit, frozen vegetables, or ice with this unit.
