SOURCE: A cork is stuck in my Oster Electric Wine Bottle

We had the same problem, and we took the thing apart, unscrewed the cork from the corkscrew and put it back together. You have to make sure you line everything up properly inside, though. There are contact points that need to be lined up on the inside.

SOURCE: I have an Oster Electric

Use a screwdriver (or whatever) to push the inner ring at the opening as far inside the appliance as you can. It is a black piece with a spring action that has plastic molded ridges inside. The ridges on the inner edge of this will grasp the cork. Then, while you are holding the inner section in place as far inside as possible, push the button to operate the opener and the cork should come out as it normally should. I had half a cork stuck up there, and this just worked perfectly.

Nobody sells a replacement, unless you are using the very expensive screw pulls. They do have replacement parts.

How to open wine bottel

Use a sommelier tool, ie, the one with a corkscrew, a little knife, and the 2-step lever thing.

Otherwise, a corkscrew: in both cases, cut the top off the protective covering on the top of the bottle (the foil), start the corkscrew part with some downward pressure in the center part of the cork, and turn clockwise. then use the rest of the device to leverage out the cork. In the worst case, use a screwdriver to screw in a screw into the cork, and pull the cork out with pliers.

Invest in a wine vacuum pump and store the red wine at room temp, white wine in the fridge.

.....of course, for screw tops, just unscrew the bottle as you would with soda pop.

How to remove cover from waring pro wo50

A broken cork was stuck up inside my Waring Pro Wine Opener. Model WO50B. No amount of maneuvering could get it out. I removed the two small screws holding the silver part of the opener on. After that was off I could see two more screws and I removed those. The unit still would not come apart. I noticed that there were four oval shaped rubber plugs up on the black part of the unit. I pried the ovals out with a wooden skewer. That exposed the other four screws holding the long part of the unit together. Once I got those out, I gently pulled the two sides apart about an inch. I could have pulled it completely apart at that point (I think) but from there I was able to free the broken cork from the big internal cork screw. Everything screwed back together fine and the unit works again.

Waring wine opener wont pull out cork

We learned that NONE of these electric wine openers like the new "plastic" corks. Take a needle nosed plyers and hold the cork tightly(as it sits inside the housing) and gently push the button to release the cork. it should work.
