Maintenance and Aftercare of iSqueeze Equipment
Maintenance is key to extending your juicing equipment’s lifespan and preventing costly breakdowns.
While other juicers and blenders need extensive maintenance routines, the machines provided by iSqueeze require minimal effort. With them, you can focus your energy on more pressing concerns.
Whether it’s a conventional juicer or a centrifugal variant, your machine needs to be cleaned daily to avoid the build-up of pulp, small bits of rind, splatters and other rubbish. This also prevents blockages and ensures that the shaft handles an even amount of weight. Give the strainers — which are usually made of mesh — extra attention, as these delicate parts deform easily.
Our machines are easy to disassemble, so cleaning would be a breeze.
If the bearings are loose, call for repair work immediately. Setting the problem aside for another day can cause you to incur a bigger repair bill down the road. Inspect the metal parts for corrosion, holes and dents, too, as these affect the performance of the machine greatly.
Clean the carafe after every use, especially if you’re blending different recipes.
At the end of the day, pour water and a few drops of dish soap into the carafe, pulse for about 30 seconds and then rinse. Then, detach the blades, gaskets and other removable components, and wash them by hand using warm water and soap.
If dried food particles or stubborn stains are stuck to the carafe, mix one part baking soda and one part water, pour the mixture into the carafe and run the blender for 30 seconds. To clean the motor housing, wipe the motor base with damp, soapy cloth. Take care not to drip water through the crevices of the base.
Wipe the exteriors, especially the handles of self-service machines, daily.
Meanwhile, cleaning the tank should be a weekly task. Fill it with warm water mixed with soap and soak it for about 15 minutes. Then, drain the tank and soak it in fresh water for another 15 minutes.
Some additional reminders in keeping your machines in working order:
- Follow the manual on using, assembling and disassembling the machines.
- If possible, call a professional for routine inspections every few months.
- Avoid overworking your machines. Do not fill them beyond their capacity.
