Warranty information inside
Congratulations... on your purchase of the Jack
LaLanne Fusion JuicerTM. For his entire life and well into his nineties,
Jack LaLanne was a pioneer and advocate for health, fitness and
proper nutrition. Over the years, Jack worked with our product
development team to produce several home juicing systems
designed to extract and deliver all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals
and flavors from fresh fruits and vegetables. From that fine tradition,
we bring you the new Jack LaLanne Fusion JuicerTM.
This product has been designed to provide you and your family with
many years of healthy juicing… but before you begin it is very
important that you read this entire manual making certain that you
are totally familiar with its operation and precautions.

READ THESE SAFEGUARDS CAREFULLY
BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT!
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions
should always be followed including the following:
• Read all instructions.
• NOT FOR USE BY CHILDREN! Keep out of the reach of children
to avoid injury.
• The Fusion JuicerTM has a polarized plug. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, this plug will fit in an outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, do not use the
appliance and consult an electrician.
• Do not operate this or any appliance with a damaged AC cord or plug.
• Unplug from outlet when not in use.
• Do not operate if appliance malfunctions, has been dropped or appears damaged in any manner. Never attempt home repairs. Only a qualified appliance technician should repair appliance before re-use.
• Do not use any attachments or utensils that were not recommended or supplied by the manufacturer. The use of attachments not
recommended or sold by the manufacturer may cause serious
hazardous situations including fire, electric shock or personal injury.
• To protect against risk of electrical shock or injury, never immerse
power cord, plug, or main unit in water, or other liquids.
• Do not let Power Cord hang over the edge of table, counter, or come
in direct contact with hot surfaces such as stoves.
• Make sure the lid is attached properly and is securely locked before
operating the Fusion Juicer. (See Assembly Step 4)
• Make sure the motor stops completely and the unit is unplugged from
the electrical outlet before disassembling, assembling or cleaning.
• Should juicer suddenly stop or develop excessive vibration or
unusually loud noise, shut off and unplug unit immediately, wait for
blade to stop running, then disassemble, clean thoroughly and reassemble.
• To avoid risk of personal injury keep hands and utensils out of the
juicer and away from its sharp Blade during operation. Use the
Pusher, not fingers or utensils, to insert food into the juicer.
• Never disengage the Locking Bar during operation.

Important Safeguards
Anyone who has not fully read and understood all operating
and safety instructions contained in this manual is not qualified
to operate or clean this appliance.
SAFETY FEATURES
The Fusion JuicerTM was designed with safety in mind.
We have added two important safety features:
Built-In Automatic Shut Off System
The Fusion JuicerTM is equipped with a special feature that
automatically shuts off the motor should the unit become jammed
or overheated during the juicing process. Prior to shut down, you will
most likely hear the juicer get louder. This will indicate that something has
caused the motor to strain. Should this happen, simply turn the Power
Switch off and unplug the unit. Follow the Disassembly, Cleaning and
Assembly procedures, then allow the unit to cool for 10 minutes. The unit
will reset and you will be able to resume the juicing process.
The Locking Bar
When in the upright and locked position, this feature holds the Juicer Lid/
Pulp Guard in place. If the Locking Bar is not in its proper position, the
motor will not engage and the blade will not spin.

Running the unit with any of this material still intact may cause
serious damage.
Next: Disassemble the unit as per the instructions on page 4 of this
manual. Wash it as per Care and Cleaning section on page 10. Dry all
parts thoroughly before use. Now, Assemble the unit as per
instructions on page 5. You are ready for juicing.
NOTE: Before juicing make sure the
Spout is pointed Down and properly
aligned with your glass or container.
Clean and cut fruits and vegetables to a size that will fit in
the Chute. Make sure all pits and large stems are removed.
Small seeds and skins shouldn’t be a problem if you wish
to use them.
Make certain juicer is placed on a stable countertop or table.
Plug the AC cord into a proper 110V outlet. Select the speed
you wish to use and allow unit to run for a few seconds.
Using the pusher gently guide the ingredients into the Chute

NOTE: Sometimes you may need to clear up food excess when
making large quantities of juice. To do this: unplug unit, remove lid,
clean blade assembly and pulp Chute.
Juicing Tips
The Benefits of Juicing:
Juicing should be done in conjunction with your regular daily consumption
of fruits and vegetables. Consuming whole fruits and vegetables daily
helps you get much needed fiber. Juicing is just a quicker way to get
many of the health benefits you need from fresh food, including antioxidants
and nutrients.
Get the Most From Your Fusion Juicer:
Some varieties of produce are more difficult to process than others. The
chart on page 9 will help take the guesswork out of juicing. The amount
of juice you process depends on which fruits and vegetables you select.
Produce such as oranges, apples, melons and cucumbers tend to yield
more juice and should be mixed with those that don’t.
Guidelines for Juicing:
We recommend juicing those produce items that you would normally
consume. Before juicing any produce it is important to wash it thoroughly
to remove all contaminants including soil and pesticides.
Skins, Stems and Seeds:
Skins: Juicing with the skins on is a personal preference
with most produce.
Stems: The only stems that are beneficial to process are
grape stems. All others should be removed as they
have nothing to offer.
Seeds: Removing seeds is discretionary due to certain
health risks associated with certain produce.
Carrots:
Carrots can be a bit challenging to juice due to their dense nature
and irregular shape. Do not overstuff the chute. Leave some room
on the sides to be able to maneuver the carrots while juicing. They
tend to bounce around inside the chute. Use the pusher to guide
them to the blade.
Citrus Fruits:
We recommend you remove the skins from citrus fruits. They certainly
can be juiced with the skin on and some recipes actually tell you to juice
with the skin. The reason we recommend you remove the skin is mostly
due to the tart flavor. It is a personal preference.

Juicing Tips
Mangoes, Apricots and Peaches:
Important: Always remove large pits. Do not put any produce in the juicer
with large pits ... these are just a few examples. Pits will damage the blade
and possibly seize the motor.
Pomegranates and Cherries:
These wonder fruits can absolutely be juiced. When juicing cherries it is
necessary to remove the pits. When juicing pomegranates, only the seeds
may be used. You must remove the outer skin and the inner membrane.
Pineapple and Melons:
Although the juicer can process the rind from these items, we
recommend its removal. Pineapple is stringy in nature and can cause a
blockage at the opening of the spout. Check to avoid blockage which will
cause overflow from the Receptacle.
Berries and Small Fruits:
When juicing berries (except cranberries) you will need to add
something that contains a larger volume of juice such as an apple or
orange. Strawberries contain the most juice because they tend to be
large. For example, first process the berries (you may not see a lot of
juice), then add an apple or an orange, something that will increase the
“juice” volume.
Keep the Pulp Collector Clean:
When juicing in large volume be sure to empty the pulp collector often.
Larger quantities of produce can cause the pulp to back up into the filter
causing the motor to shut off. Insert a plastic bag inside the pulp collector.
When you are done juicing, the bag can be lifted out and disposed of,
leaving the pulp collector easier to clean.
Do Not Juice
Avocado, Banana and Coconut as they do not contain juice.
Rhubarb is not recommended due to toxins.

Care & Cleaning
All of the components with the exception of the motor base can be put in your home
dishwasher. We recommend top rack placement as temperatures near the bottom
drying element may vary with manufacturer.*
• Turn off the power switch and wait until the motor completely stops.
• With dry hands, unplug the power cord from electrical outlet.
• Disassemble the machine. (See disassembly instructions pages 4).
• Wipe base with a soft damp cloth or sponge. Do not submerge
base in water. Do not spray with water or any other liquid. Base
is not dishwasher safe.
Important: Do not use abrasive sponges, cloths or cleansers as these can damage the finish.
• Use the cleaning brush supplied (never a wire brush) to loosen the leftover fibers that may be stuck to the filter before placing it in the dishwasher.
• Clean all other parts in warm, soapy water. A mild detergent is
recommended. Rinse well and dry thoroughly.
• To clean the filter and blade, hold them under warm running water. Use a bristled dish washing brush to gently clean pulp from filter.
Rinse the filter from the outside under running water. If your sink has a spray hose attachment, this is especially effective for loosening fiber from the filter and the blade.
• Dry components thoroughly then assemble the machine and turn
the power on to spin out any excess water.
• Make sure unit and parts are completely dry then store in a
cool, dry place.
*Caution: Some commercial and foreign made dishwashers may reach internal
temperatures that are higher than machines made for home use by U.S. standards.
Do not use these dishwashers with your Fusion Juicer. The higher temperatures may
cause damage to your juicer voiding your warranty. Check with your dishwasher
manufacturer before using.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Unit does not
run when
switched on.
Reason/Solution
•Check to see if unit is plugged in.
•Locking bar is not locked in place properly.
•Check if all parts are assembled properly.
•Check if there is any residue left between
blade and receptacle.
•Make sure you wait 5-10 minutes to
restart if machine automatically shuts down.
Motor is
unusually loud
and vibrating
• Check that all parts are assembled properly
and in the correct position.
• Juicing overripe fruit may result in too much
pulp and will clog the filter. Turn machine off
and clean the filter.
The motor overheats
causing the power
to automatically
shut off
• You may have applied too much pressure
with the pusher while processing causing
the motor to accidentally over heat. This
activates the built-in Thermal Cut Off
Switch. The motor will temporarily stop
working for approximately 10 minutes
to cool down. See additional information
on page 2.
• The fruits and vegetables may be soft
or over ripe.
• There may be too much pulp in the filter.
Turn machine off and clean the filter.
No juice is coming
out of the spout
• Make sure the non-drip spout is in the down
position while juicing. If it is in the upright
position the juice will not come out. It may
overflow out the bottom sides.
