Product won't turn on - safety feature appears broken

All the parts are in place and seem to be locked, but the food processor won't turn on. Are there any suggestions for making this work, or is it just broken. Thanks!

I went through the same thing...as it turns out, everything was locked into place but I had the handle in the back rather than the front where the sensor is. Good luck. I hope that helps you.

Cannot turn the lid on to kitchenaid food processor


It sounds like you need a new working bowl. It is not uncommon for that safety switch mechanism to fail inside the handle.

The motor on our B&D PowerPro II food processer runs but does not spin anymore. Can this be repaired?


If the lid is not locked in place it will not work. It's a safety feature. Verify that you've got it latched in tightly under the handle.

When i press pulse the "on" light is orange but nothing happens


If you are testing it without the bowl in place and the lid locked in place it will not work. It is a safety feature that I discovered when I was putting mine together. Make sure the bowl clicks into place on the machine with the handle in the front and then click the lid in with pusher portion in the front. Make sure that both click into place or it will not work .

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.

I have a kitchen aid food processor, it is on, but motor doess no


This sounds like an issue relating with the assembly of the machine. The motor is definitely getting power if the indicator is lit. However, Kitchenaid food processors are designed (as a safety feature) to remain unengaged if the unit is not assembled in such a way. Here is the proper assembly:

Please disassemble the unit. This means: removing the blade, removing the work bowl, the work bowl cover, and unplugging the unit.

Starting with the work bowl: place the handle at the 9 o'clock position, which is out to the left. Rotate downward to the 6 o'clock position until it locks in, centered over the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid.

Depending on which food processor you have, you may need the feed tube pusher depressed at least half way down the feed tube.

Plug in the unit. The blade does not have be installed for unit it to work at this point, assuming everything is assembled properly and the motor is functioning. The motor should now be working.

Motor switch not activating on a dfp-14ts


Is the cover assembly engaged and locked into place? If you can't lock the cover into place, it's possible that part of the plastic on the cover assembly is broken and not engaging the white rod inside the bowl. Determine which part is at fault (either the bowl or the cover assembly) and replace it.

Food processor


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 workbowl
5. Place the lid on the workbowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the workbowl 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

Food Processor won't turn on?


Food processor housings MUST be assembled in a certain order. And each part usually clicks or snaps into place. When all parts are PROPERLY assembled, the safety interlock switch will engage. Until then, no workee.
