Auger and juice screen replacementWe used our Omega juicer almost daily for a little over a year before the auger and the juicing screen broke. Not sure why. It might have been from occasionally putting them in the dishwasher (top shelf). However, we love the juicer! Tried to order parts at the time, but the auger was out of stock for a while. The auger is rather expensive and we thought about just replacing the whole unit instead of spending $70 for a part. Still, it was cheaper to just buy the auger when it became available. It arrived less than a week after we ordered it. I'm thankful to e juicing again! From now on we will wash the parts by hand only.

$100/yr parts cost?!? No Way!I don't know who the reviewer is who posted $100/yr parts cost, but I found myself shaking my head while reading the review. First of all, his/her screen would have been under warranty, that's $10 for shipping. Done. (Not $30). I've owned the 8004 juicer with this auger for over 3 yrs. The auger looks like new except for some veggie residue that can linger after washing. (A little vinegar or a good scraping can likely take that fully off.) This auger is a solid piece of equipment. To reiterate, I juice often and have for years. There's rarely a day that I don't juice and there are many days when I juice twice. I juice LOTS of greens and carrots (among other things). My auger continues to be strong and sturdy. Companies hear from me when I think their products are of poor quality. I've had no problems with Omega, and I must admit that I was a bit careless with the screen [see my review under the 8004 model]. I love my juicer. In fact, I'm actually on the site today looking to purchase another for a family member.
