- 3 Inch Wide Feed Chute – This extra wide feed chute allows whole fruits and vegetables to be juiced. Though fruits with large pits, hard seeds, or stones, need to have those removed before processing, items like beets, carrots and pears (without the stem) can be washed and processed whole.
- Multiple Speed Selections – 5 different speed selections allow you to precisely juice your fruits and vegetables. You can move between juicing seedless grapes to apples depending on the hardness of the food you are juicing.
- Overload Protection – The juicer will stop automatically if the motor is stalled for more then 10 seconds. This prevents an overload on the motor in case of an issue. Usually this is due to there being either too much food being processed at one time, or the pieces are not small enough. The Overload Protection can be reset by turning the ON/OFF Switch to off, removing the power cord and removing any food from the feed chute. Once you are ready, plug the unit back in and commence juicing.
- Place the Motor Base on a flat dry surface.
- Place the Filter Bowl Surround on top of the motor base.
- Align the arrows at the base of the Nutri Disc™ with the arrows on the Motor Drive Coupling and push down until it clicks into place.
- Place the Juicer Cover over the Filter Bowl Surround, positioning the feed chute over the Nutri Disc™ and lower into position.
- Raise the safety locking arm up and position it into the two grooves on either side of the juicer cover.
- Slide the Food Pusher down the feed chute by aligning the groove of the Food Pusher with the small protrusion on the inside top of the feed chute.
- Place the Pulp Container into position by tilting the base of the container away from the motor base and sliding the Pulp Container over the bottom of the large chute on the side of the Juice Cover.
- Place the Juice Jug under the spout on the right-hand side of the Juicer. The Juice Jug lid can be used to avoid any splatter. Alternatively you can fit the custom-designed juice nozzle over the juice spout and place a glass underneath.

Your Breville ikon Juice Fountain is a quality appliance. The best materials were used in making it, and it was carefully engineered to let you enjoy your fresh juices for years and years to come.
However, as with any machine, you have to look after it a little to make sure it can operate as it is intended to. Please follow our care tips below.
Ensure the ikon Juice Fountain is turned off by pressing the ‘On/Off’ button on the control panel to ‘OFF’. Then switch the appliance off at the power outlet and unplug the cord. Ensure the ikon Juice Fountain is correctly disassembled.
For easier cleaning
Clean as you go to avoid dried-on juice or pulp residue. Immediately after each use, rinse removable parts in hot water to remove wet pulp. Allow parts to air dry. To minimize cleaning, line the pulp container with a plastic freezer bag to collect the pulp. Pulp can then be used in other dishes or as compost for the garden or discarded.
Cleaning the Motor Base
|1.||Wipe the Motor Base with a soft, damp cloth then dry thoroughly.|
|2.||Wipe any excess food particles from the power cord. Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners when cleaning the parts or Motor Base as they may scratch the surface.|
Cleaning the Filter Bowl Surround, Juicer Cover, Food Pusher, and Pulp Container
|1.||Wash all parts in warm soapy water with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly.|
|2.||The Filter Bowl Surround, Juicer Cover, and Pulp Container are dishwasher-safe (top shelf only).|
Cleaning the Filter Basket
For consistent juicing results always ensure that the stainless steel filter basket is thoroughly cleaned using the supplied cleaning brush.
- The stainless steel filter basket may be washed in the top shelf of any dishwasher.
- Do not soak the stainless steel filter basket in bleach or other abrasive cleansers.
- Always treat the filter basket with care as it can be easily damaged.
Cleaning the Juice Jug
|1.||Rinse the juice jug and lid with froth attachment under running water.|
|2.||Wash both parts in warm soapy water with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly. The juice jug and lid may be washed in the top shelf of any dishwasher.|
Removing stubborn or strong food stains and odors
Discoloration of the plastic may occur with strongly colored fruit and vegetables. To help prevent this, wash parts immediately after use. If discoloration does occur, the plastic parts can be soaked in water with 10% lemon juice or they can be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE MOTOR BASE IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID. THE CENTER OF THE FILTER BASKET AND FEED CHUTE CONTAINS SMALL SHARP BLADES TO PROCESS FRUIT AND VEGETABLES DURING THE JUICING FUNCTION. DO NOT TOUCH BLADES WHEN HANDLING THE FILTER BASKET OR FEED CHUTE.
- Always wash fruit and vegetables before juicing. The easiest way to make sure they are juice ready is to wash and dry them thoroughly before storing.
- Citrus fruit can be juiced in the Juicer, but remove the skin and excess pith before juicing.
- Its best to juice harder fruits and vegetables at higher speeds. If the lower speeds are used, the load put on the Nutri Disc™ will be greater and can cause the juice to be less than the optimal yield and can cause the motor to potentially stall.

While the juicer pulp should be dry, it’s not really going to come out of the machine like saw dust. There will always be a slight dampness to it but squeezing the pulp should not produce copious amounts of liquid after processing and the pulp should be spun out of the Nutri Disc™ and into the pulp container efficiently.
- If the pulp is overly wet and less juice is being extracted then expected, the first thing to do is make sure that the juicer speed is not too high, try a lower speed setting. If the speed is a bit much for the food being juices, the liquid may not have time to move through the filter and instead my cling to the pulp and move out along with it.
- The next thing to check is the filter basket, is the mesh clogged or are there food fibers coating the blades. These can hinder the correct processing of the foods and cause the juice to, again, move out of the machine with the pulp, making it wetter then normal.
- If the pulp is clogging up inside the juicer top cover, it may be that the speed is too high to move the pulp out of the pulp chute and into the pulp container, and, instead, the Nutri Disc™ is releasing the pulp so that it is hitting the upper part of the top cover. Turn off the juicer and remove the top cover, clear out the pulp that is collected in the top cover and replace it back on the juicer. Restart juicing, using a lower speed.
- Push the food pusher down the chute at a slower pace, letting the blades process the food a bit slower
The filter basket, or Nutri Disc™, is vitally important to the operation of the Juice Fountain® Plus Upgrade as well as all of Breville’s centrifugal juicers. It houses the blades and the filtering mesh that keeps the pulp from the juice. The mesh of the filter basket, or Nutri Disc™, becoming clogged can cause a large variety of issues that may seemingly be unrelated. Leaking from most places around the filter bowl surround rim and the juicer cover rim; overly wet pulp; reduced juice amounts from extractions; larger then normal chunks of food appearing in the pulp or bouncing around the interior of the filter basket. There may be different things that could cause all of those but there is one thing that can cause them all: a clogged Nutri Disc™.
- Some fruits and vegetables can be very fibrous. Not meaning that they are high in dietary fiber but that the actual flesh is laid out into longer, fibrous sections. Celery is a prime example of this as well as ginger, coconuts, and pineapple. The flesh of these food items will leave long string like fibers on the blade of the Nutri Disc™ and on the mesh, effectively blocking the sharp edges and plugging the mesh holes. When juice can not flow between the mesh, it works it’s way up the Nutri Disc™ sides due to the turning force of the juicer. Once at the top of the Nutri Disc™ sides, it sprays a bit out at the juicer cover and filter bowl surround and with how fast the juicer is spinning it and how quickly this can be pressed against the blades, a lot of juice can be sprayed, causing a leak between the seams of these two parts.
- If the fruits and vegetables are very fibrous, those fibers can effectively ‘wrap’ around the blades of the Nutri Disc™. This means that, while they can still slice through the food, they are dulled and will not do so easily or efficiently and end up with a more ‘grind’ like motion instead of slicing/grating that should be happening. Generally the speed that the Nutri Disc™ is turning will allow the food to be juiced up until the last 1/2 inch nub or so. If the blade is clogged the sharp edges can not continue grabbing at the food to keep it juicing even after it looses contact with the bottom of the food pusher, making that un-juiced nub much larger then previously seen.
- The juice of the food being processed should flow easily through the mesh, into the juice collector. The pulp is separated out and sent to the pulp container. If the mesh is clogged, the juice will not flow through easily and will be moved with the pulp causing it to be wetter then normal. The amount of juice that ends up in the juice collector will be less then normal due to it being diverted into the pulp container.
It’s always best to clean the Nutri Disc™ thoroughly after each use. If very fibrous food is being juiced, especially items like celery and ginger, alternating between harder and softer foods can assist in cleaning some of that pulp from the mesh and blades, however this will only marginally improve the results. The best and most through way to unclog the Nutri Disc™ is to stop the juicing after those items are processed, thoroughly clean both the the Nutri Disc™ mesh and blades, reinsert the Nutri Disc™ into the machine and commence juicing again.
If the Juice Fountain® Multi-Speed is running but the motor sounds stressed and is slowing down, there are a few causes for this with easy solutions.
- Wet pulp can build up under the juicer cover if the juicing is a bit too vigorous, meaning the food is being processed too quickly. Turn off the juicer and take the top cover off. Clean out the filter bowl surround, the Nutri Disc™, and the top cover then replace the parts and commence juicing again. This time, push the food pusher down slower and process in slightly smaller batches.
- Harder foods will put excess strain on the motor if processed at a low speed. Refer to the juicing guide to determine the correct speed for the fruits and vegetables that are being juiced.
- If food become stuck, the pulp becomes to excessive, or the motor strain is too much, and this lasts more then 10 seconds, the machine will automatically stop operating due to prevent damage to the motor. Turn the juicer off with the On/OFF switch, remove the food from the feed chute, cut it into smaller, even pieces, process in smaller amounts per batch, clean out the pulp from the top cover, filter bowl surround, and Nutri Disc™, reassemble and turn the juicer on again and resume processing. Pressing the On/Off switch will reset the juicer and cleaning the pulp, processing in smaller batches, using smaller and more even foods will prevent it from occurring again.
If the overload protection has engaged on the juicer, it’s important to understand that this is due to either excessive juicing or processing too quickly. The motor will stall or not turn the Nutri™ Disc for 10 seconds or more and the protection kicks in, shutting off the motor. To reset this, turn the ‘ON/OFF’ switch to the ‘OFF’ position, unplug the juicer from the wall and remove any food in the chute. Leave the juicer unplugged for 1 hour before resuming juicing in order to ensure that the protection is reset and the juicer motor has cooled to an operable temperature.
