Please allow me a few moments to investigate the information you have logged with us today so that I can provide you with the information you need to have this matter addressed

I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a juicer which has no sign of power. I would suggest there could be a number of reasons that could cause this to occur, however, I would recommend we start with changing the fuse that is located in the power plug to do so, please see the steps I have attached below;

  1. Power the unit off. (Press the power button).
  2. Remove the power cable from the power source. 
  3. Open the power plug using a screwdriver. 
  4. Identify the fuse on the right-hand side and replace it with a like for like. 
  5. Re-seal the plug using a screwdriver. 
  6. Re-connect the plug to a power source. 
  7. Last, verify if the unit has power again. 

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!

Hi AndrewReally appreciate you taking the time to help.I replaced the fuse and unfortunately the juicer still won’t power up.Could you advise on what you think could be wrong?All the bestDamian

If that has not worked, it could be a number of things that could be wrong, what you really need is an appliance engineer who can tackle this with a hands-on approach to pinpoint where what has gone wrong, I would recommend consulting a company I know of which can be reached via the following weblink -
