How small are the pieces of fruit and vegetables you're using???
Last night I was juicing kale, chard, apple chunks, parsnip chunks, carrot chunks, ginger slices and a few strawberries.
It was straining from the beginning and eventually started making a loud nise and shaking and then there was a mall amount of smoke and an electrical fire kind of smell.
I've seen people on tv ram whole apples down those chutes. And I cut my apples into about 10 pieces each (to describe the size pieces). The carrots and parsnips were roughly the size of ice cubes from an ice cube tray.
It had been actually straining w/ the kale the previous day but thought it was bc the produce was dry.
I'm really mad. My daughter and I were enjoying drinking fresh juice.
That really sucks! I hope you can take that thing back!!!!!
apples, I cut in quarters, carrots I leave whole, oranges in half, kale one stalk at a time (because it's weird). I do listen to see if it sounds like things are going on.
