Get a replacement work bowl lid and/or pusher sleeve - if that does not resolve, replace the whole work bowl.

When the new processor is plugged in, the motor does not work


Denise suspect all items below not locked in to place
have you locked in the work bowl ?
have you locked in the lid ?
have you locked in mouth feed chute ?
For your protection this appliance has an interlock system. The processor will not operate unless the workbowl, cover and wide-mouth feed chute are properly locked in place.

MACHINE WON'T TURN ON AFTER BEING USED


I am guessing that something is not seated properly. Make sure the bowl clicks when turned...drops the pin in. Make sure the top is ("clicked in") locked. If you poured something out of the bowl and went to re-use it, make sure the blade is seated properly; make sure there is no food caught under the blade hindering the blade to be seated. Everything must be locked in correctly to operate safely.

It won't go on. Nothing, no noise at all. Does not work


Can you check the safety switches. There are usualy a couple of spots that will cut off power to machine if the bowl is not installed properly. One is at the bottom usually a pin type of setup that tells it the bowl is installed and then a lock on topto make sure the top is on properly. Check to make sure A it is installed properly B thatnone of thos pins have cracked therefor not doing it's job properly

Can't get cuisenart pro 11 to start


I am assuming you have a DLC-8S Pro Custom 11, and not another Cuisinart food processor.

Remove the work bowl and all other parts completely from base.
Plug the base in, and turn it on.
Use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base.
If you hear a spinning or other noise, the motor is still good.

Now that you have verified that the motor is good:
Put each work bowl piece on one at a time - if you don't out it on one at a time, it will not lock in properly.
Put work bowl on with work bowl handle facing front, make sure bowl locks.
Put lid on with hollow feed tube facing the back of the food processor.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with sliding lock switch facing the front of the food processor.

You should now be good to go.

Problems with Braun K3000


1st lock the bowl properly, watch for the arrow pointing in the right direcction. Then lock the lid, properly and watch that it makes kind of a click sound when it enters into de machine. After that you should be able to turn it on

We can`t disasemble it with the dough blade in, any tips?


All of the blades "lock" (rest in a groove) when rotated clockwise. This is so they'll stay put when in operation. When you take the bowl out with a blade in, you're moving the pair in a clockwise direction. So, you lock the blade in, thus locking the bowl down. Either remove the blade first by rotating it counter clockwise, then up or move the blade back 1/10th of a turn after rotating the bowl as far as it will go clockwise.

On the KitchenAid 3 cup Chef's Chopper, How do you lock the blade so I can turn on the chopper?


The Kitchenaid food choppers 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 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.

Appears to be locked but won't turn on


Instructions only apply to Cuisinart DLC-2011 series:

Remove the work bowl and all other parts completely from base.
Plug the base in, and turn it on.
Use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base.
If you hear a spinning or other noise, the motor is still good.

Now that you have verified that the motor is good:
Put each work bowl piece on one at a time - if you don't out it on one at a time, it will not lock in properly.
Put work bowl on with work bowl handle facing front, make sure bowl locks.
Put lid on with lid lined up with work bowl handle.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with metal element facing the front of the food processor.

You should now be good to go.

My food processer does not work


I had the exact same problem. The red light came on when I hit the "On" button, but nothing happened. Then I noticed that when the lid is locked into place, a small pin in the handle goes into a small hole in the base. I took a wooden chopstick and poked it in this hole in the base, and the unit started running. I put the bowl and lid back on the unit and locked them into place, and this time the unit ran just fine. Yeah! I will remember this the next time my unit won't run even though I know that I've properly locked down the bowl and lid. Good luck!

Power red llight is on, but the motor/blades won't go


Well, now I feel totally foolish. The handle on the bowl must be toward the front of the bowl, not the rear otherwise the operating post won't engage.
