How to remove the parts of Yonanas Machine?

The first thing you need to learn to clean your Yonanas machine is to remove the parts. Yonanas parts are chute, plunger, blades, seal, and screw cap.

Disassembling Yonanas Step 1:

If the fruit chute is straight down and up, it is locked. To remove it, turn the chute to the left, and it will release a “clicking” sound. It means the chute is unlocked, and you can remove it from the base. 

Disassembling Yonanas Step 2:

Look for the cap that has ridges on the bottom of the chute. Then turn the cap to the left to unscrew it completely.

Disassembling Yonanas Step 3:

After unscrewing the cap, be careful when handling the metal blade assembly – the blades are extremely sharp and should be handled with care.

Disassembling Yonanas Step 4:

Carefully grasp the edges of the white blade assembly. Be careful not to cut your fingers with the sharp blades. Then, separate them from the cap at the bottom.

Disassembling Yonanas Step 5:

Take the edge of the seal made of rubber and pull the seal until you completely remove it from the screw cap on the bottom.
