Question about Cuisinart Food Processors

Open Question

Lid won't lock in

There is a safety lock on the lid of the bowl. There are two tabs that need to lock in to release the safety lock to allow the processor to turn on. Only one will lock in. I've taken two pictures to show what I'm talking about, as I'm sure I may be hard to understand. I just can not seem to get this lid to lock in. please take a look at the pictures and tell me if you know how I can fix this problem. I'm so frustrated, I just want to use the appliance. It's brand new, but past the time for me to return to the store.

You might need to zoom in on the picture to see the circles I put around the parts in question, and the notes I made.

    Nevermind! :o) I was putting the bowl on backwards. After close inspection I saw the pin that is supposed to lock into the base unit. Then I took the bowl off and saw that there is no hole there, and I looked at the other end of the unit and saw a place for the pin, so I turned it around, put everything on, and it locked in and worked! Yes I feel silly, but it works now, so I'm happy! Thanks everybody!

SOURCE: Lid stuck on bowl of my Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus.

Generally they twist off, but on the DLC-2, if the lid won't come off, a replacement bowl and lid is around $18.00

SOURCE: Cuisinart Processor workbowl lid fitting

Yes, it will fit. There is also a DLC016B that will fit, but it does not have the feed tube. It's just a flat cover.

Hamilton Beach food processor


make sure bowl and lid are on correctly. If not, it wont run. Both have safety switches where they lock onto the unit. If latch tab is broken, you will need new bowl or lid. If still nothing, switch itself is bad

The cusinart pro classic food processor is not working ?


Try this procedure:-- It usually goes something like this, with minor variations depending on model number:1.Remove the work bowl completely from the base
2.Plug the food processor in and turn it on
3.Use a pen to depress the dark grey/black button on the base – if it spins, proceed
4.Put the work bowl on the base with the handle facing the front of the food processor – slide the work bowl until it locks - the white tabs show in the openings on the bottom of either side of the work bowl
5.Place the lid on the work bowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the work bowl handle – slide the lid counterclockwise until it won’t slide any more
6.Place the pusher sleeve in the feeder tube of the lid with the lock facing the front of the food processor (may vary depending on model)
7.Slide the lock to the right into the locked position
The food processor should now work.
This will help.Good luck.

New magimix won't start


It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

I can't figure out how to use it.. I just want to make a smoothie!


You can get a manual at WWW. euro-pro.com.

In order to use the blender the food processor bowl and lid must be LOCKED in place. Turn the lid on processor until it's locked. Then you are ready to use the blender. Select desired speed or pulse.

In order to use the processor, remove the blender and place the gray lid in its place. It should be locked. The lid keeps the blender shaft from spinning and allows the shaft on the processor to turn.

To remove the processor bowl, gently lift up on the lid to unlock it and then turn it away from processor. Bowl lifts off. That's it! Enjoy!

Hope I have been of some help to you.

I Cuisanart mini prep and removed the bowl, lid,


Make sure the tab on the lid is making contact with the "tower" in the back and that the work bowl is locked properly into place so that the plastic tabs show on each side toward the bottom of the work bowl.

KitchenAid Food Processor 770 won't run


I am assuming the unit is getting power. The "power" LED should be lit up on the front of the unit.

The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.

If this has not resolve the issue, please ensure the outlet is receiving power.

If the unit is still not functioning, take a close look at the bottom of the work bowl where it meets to the motor base. The work bowl, when locked in, depressed a gray plastic peg. This is the safety mechanism. You may trying depressing this peg on your own with a pencil. If this activates the motor, this may indicate your work bowl is no longer seating correctly.

Also check the work bowl handle to make sure nothing is cracked. There is a plastic assembly in the handle that acts as a second safety feature.

If either of these things seems to be the culprit, I would suggest seeking a new work bowl or work bowl lid to correct the issue.

Euro-Pro EP91 Quad-Blade 6 Won't Start


My wife was given this unit from an elderly gentleman that was done trying to make it work.
I just fixed the same problem as above. Note - I do not have a manual for this unit.
True above about the bowl cover being locked in position but found the key to make it work is also the white lid to the left of the bowl cover. I was locking and unlocking this white lid with no results. Then I removed the bowl cover and found the white lid cover was loose and easily removed this white lid to inspect inside ( why this cover removes I have no clue).
Anyway I was able to snap the white cover firmly on and turn counter clockwise to lock in place ( six o’clock position), then after putting the bowl cover back on and snapping in place it works.
Note - I do not need to turn the white lid cover to install or remove the clear bowl cover, this could be because it looks like one of the clear tabs might be broken on the locking area of the clear bowl cover. If you have two tabs the same shape on the bowl cover you may need twist the white lid clockwise to install and remove the bowl cover and counter clockwise to lock in place so the unit works, but now that my white lid is snapped firmly in place it hardly moves with the force of both hands trying to turn it.
Hope this helps someone.
Good Luck !
