What are the most common parts that need to be replaced on the Estate and Champion Wine Openers and why?
The guide slug part # 14 on our drawing (this is the white nylon piece that you can see when you look up into the wine opener) is the most common replacement part. If this piece is cracked, the opener cannot uncork the bottle. This can happen if the wine opener encounters a really hard cork or sometimes a synthetic cork. Because the part is cast and then fused together, unusual pressure can cause it to crack. It is easy to replace and the cost is only $4.50 plus mailing costs. A wine opener can open thousands of bottles without encountering this problem or in rare cases only a few bottles.
The auger part #10 on our drawing (also known as the screw, corkscrew, worm, or spiral) is another part that may need to be replaced at some time. Again, the cause can be a hard or synthetic cork that can bend or snap the auger. And, this is also an easy, repair at home, part. This part is $12.00 plus mailing costs.
We also sell the guide slug and the auger as a kit auger kit (stock # 0410). If youve had your opener a long time (before 1994) you will probably need to order the two parts. At that time we changed from a wire auger to a machined auger. The new guide slug will not work with the old auger and vice versa. The kit is $16.50 plus mailing costs.
Instructions for installing parts are included with parts.
The wood handle and handle screw parts #24 and 25 on our drawing. Although these can be ordered separately, we recommend you order them together ($6.00 plus mailing costs). Usually, the handle is lost in a move, or very rarely, the wood may crack after long use, long exposure to dampness, etc.
Clamp pads sold in set of 2 part # 23 on our drawing. These rubber pads are inside the clamps and help to hold the bottle in place while you are opening the bottle. On occasion, one or both might fall out. If are still in good shape, just put them back in (see below). If they look dried out or cracked or you lose them, just order a new set ($4.00 plus mailing costs). To install the clamp pads:
You need to take out the existing pads before installing the new ones.
Place 2 small spots of Superglue (or equivalent) evenly distributed on clamp surface.
The narrow portion goes on top.
You just use a screwdriver blade to push the clamps into place
Clamps sold as a pair parts # 3 and 4 on our drawing. Like all the outer parts of our wine openers, the clamps are cast in metal. With unusual pressure, the part can snap and break. Replacement clamp sets are available for our Estates openers specify Antique Bronze or Champion openers specify Antique Pewter. Estate clamp sets are $17.95 plus mailing costs. Champion Antique Pewter Plate clamp sets are $20.95 plus mailing costs. Full instructions for installing your new clamp set are included.
