Contact us for reasonable rates to refurbish any model Norwalk juicer.

The following photos show most of the typical steps when refurbishing a Norwalk juicer. 
All juicers receive a new front motor shaft seal and when needed "Highest quality" motor bearings.
A thorough cleaning and sanitizing is performed before reassembly.

So you think your juicer is in good condition and your motor sounds good.
  
Many people with used Norwalk juicers have never heard a motor with good bearings.
The photos above show bearings rusted and seized up from an old 235 model that the owner said was in good condition 
New sealed bearings on the right are Quality Bearings that we use -- five times the cost of bearings made in China

  
Opening the top of the hydraulic reservoir to remove and clean all parts, replace O rings and when needed install a new return spring
Final step-- add new hydraulic fluid, re-assemble and test (note red transmision fluid used in 270 and later models.) 

  

  

  


Also included in refurbishing
A thourough cleaning under the sheet metal, reassembly and caulking all hydraulic posts where juice can leak down.
When needed replace all motor bearings with highest quality NSK bearings.
(We do not use low cost Chinese bearings for our motor refurbishing)

  
Most juicers we see are never cleaned and are poorly cared for and can be breeding places for germs and mold

  
Many juicers are badly cared for BUT if one is juicing often with a bad front motor shaft seal the above photos show what can happen.
Replacing a motor shaft seal is easy to do. Anyone can learn how to do it. If you juice often check this seal every 6 months.
The more often you clean and replace your motor shaft seal the longer your juicer will last and the stronger the motor will be.

  
        A NEW motor shaft seal can help keep your motor clean 
  
Tapping out bolt hole corrosion makes future maintenance easy

  
New motor bearings when needed can make your juicer run quietly again, increase Horse Power and put less strain on the motor

  
If in good condition the wooden pusher is first cleaned and scrubbed with soap and water, 
then scrubbed wtih a half lemon (a natural bleach) and then scrubbed again with apple cider vinegar
When dry the wood is sealed wtih mineral oil. Never use vegetable oil that can go rancid.
Some may choose a new UHMW polyethylene pusher or new wooden pusher available at Norwalk Sales ($16 + Shipping)

The final touch -- seal all hydraulic posts and hydraulic cover 
wtih clear silicone caulk to prevent any juice from leaking below the metal
  

  
All juicers refurbished by Whole Health Foundation receive a FREE digital thermometer
A digital thermometer and adding "distilled water" ice cubes keeps juice pulp temperature below 75° for best nutrient retention.
