Know Your Juicer
The Juice Fountain Crush® is a slow juicer that crushes and squeezes to make nutritious juice with a fiber for thicker, smoother texture. It juices everything from berries and oranges to wheatgrass and carrots.
|A. – Food pusher.
B. – Hopper and lid.
C. – Juicing screw.
D. – Filter basket.
E. – Scraper wiper.
|F. – Pulp Container.
G. – Motor base.
H. – Juicing jug.
I. – ON | OFF | Reverse.
J. – Juicing bowl.
- Directional Control – If food should become stuck in the Juicing Screw, the Juicer is equipped with directional control that allows you to reverse the direction of the screw, assisting in releasing the food to allow continued juicing.
- Overload Protection – If the load on the motor gets to be too much, the Juicer’s Overload Protection will kick in and shut off the motor to the Juicer. Once sufficiently cooled, juicing can commence again.
- Electronic Protection – If too much food is being processed at one time or the pieces are not small enough, the Juice Fountain® Crush as Electronic Protection that will stall the motor and stop the juicing. Unplugging the Juicer and clearing the food from the food chute will reset this protection.
- Place the Motor Base on a flat dry surface.
- Underneath the Filter Bowl Surround is the pulp extraction silicon plug, which is used to remove pulp from the spout of the Juicing Bowl. Ensure that the silicon is firmly inserted into the juicing spout.
- Place the Filter Bowl Surround on top of the Motor Base and align the arrows to the ALIGN position then turn slightly to the left to the LOCK position.
- Place the Filter Basket into the scraper wiper then place this assembly into the Juicing Bowl. Note that the orange dot on the filter needs to align with the orange dot on the Juicing Bowl and Motor Base.
- Place the Juicing Screw into the Filter Basket and press down until it clicks into place. Also, if unsure if the Juicing Screw is locked, turn it. If the scraper wiper does not move, then the Juicing Screw is not fully in place.
- Place the lid on to the Filter Bowl Surround. Align the orange dot on the lid with the orange dot on the Motor Base and turn clockwise to the “LOCK” or closed position.
- Ensure that the hopper is placed in the feed chute then place the Food Pusher into the hopper.
- Place the pulp container into position by tilting the bottom away from the Juicer and sliding the pulp container under the pulp spout.
- Place the juice jug under the juicer spout.

Care and Use
- If making different fruit juiced, pour a glass of water(about 6oz.) into the feed chute in between juices to rinse any left over flavors out. It is not always necessary to completely clean the juicer between making multiple juices.
- Discoloration of the plastic parts may occur with brightly colored fruits and vegetables. To help prevent this, wash parts immediately after use. If discoloration does occur, the plastic parts can be soaked in 10% lemon juice and water or they can be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner. Do not soak the Filter Basket in bleach.
Care & Cleaning
Always ensure that the juicer is turned off and the power cord is unplugged from the power outlet before cleaning, disassembling or assembling and storing the appliance.
|Do not place any part of the juicer in the dishwasher.|
|1.||Immediately after each use, use the provided nylon brush to thoroughly clean the fine mesh holes of the filter basket. Brush the inside of the filter basket under running water, holding it up towards the light to ensure the fine mesh holes are not blocked.|
|2.||Wash the filter bowl surround, scraper wiper, juicing screw, pulp container and juicing jug in warm soapy water with the provided small nylon brush or a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly.|

A few tips on Juicing with your Juice Fountain® Crush.
- Always wash fruits and vegetables before juicing. To save some time, wash them before storing.
- Most fruits and hardier types of vegetables can be stored at room temperature. Fruits at room temperature actually produce a bit more juice then those that are chilled at juicing. The more delicate and perishable items, such as berries, leafy greens, celery, cucumber and herbs, should be stored in the refrigerator until required.
- All fruits with large pits, hard seeds or stones, such as nectarines, peaches, mangoes, apricots, plums and cherries, must be pitted before juicing.
Juicer will not work or suddenly turns off during juicing.
- Check that the power plug is securely inserted into wall outlet.
- Insert the power plug into an independent outlet.
- Insert the power plug into a different outlet.
- Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
- Ensure the juicer is assembled correctly.
- The Overload Protection may have automatically deactivated the motor. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and allow the appliance to cool for at least 1 hour. Insufficient cooling time may result in the motor deactivating again. After sufficient cooling time, reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet, press the reset button under the base of the motor and recommence normal use.
Motor appears to stall when juicing.
- The Electronic Protection device will automatically de-activate the motor if the motor is stalled. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and clear the Feed Chute. Either too much food is being processed at one time or the pieces are not small enough. Try trimming food, cutting food into smaller pieces of even size and/or processing a smaller amount per batch. Then reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet and recommence normal use.
- Ensure the motor is running before loading the feed chute with food.
- Hard fruits and vegetables will put excess strain onto the motor.
Cleaning the Filter Basket will remove excess fiber buildup (from juicing fruit or vegetables) which could be inhibiting the juice flow.
- Stop the juicing process and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Use the provided nylon brush to thoroughly clean the fine mesh holes of the Filter Basket. Brush the inside of the Filter Basket under running water, then hold it up towards a light to see whether the fine mesh holes are blocked.
- If the holes are blocked, soak the Filter Basket in hot water with 10% lemon juice to loosen the blocked holes, then repeat step 1.
