Why Cuisinart mixer will not start?


All Cuisnarts have an interlock rod built in to the bowl assembly.
Make sure the bowl is positioned on the motor base correctly, and the actuator in the lid that pushes the interlock rod down is not bromen or damaged. If it is intact and working correctly, then check the switch it pushes on, or the main power switch.

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.

I have a cuisinart pro classic food processor, and even though bowl and top are locked in place, it will not start.


On the processor look at the bowl and lid and see where they are supposed to engage the motor. If this is broken then that is the problem, find something to push on where the part of the the bowl and lid assembly would push, if it comes on then you have figured out the problem.

My magic bullet won't press down. It stays stuck and I cannot get the cup to push down onto the turning mechanism that is totally intact. It seems the side 3 pieces will not move downward when the cup is...


Had the same problem - it wouldn't press down. The little white plastic things inside of the base that go up and down when the cup is pushed down, were stuck. I think that something leaked into them so they wouldn't slide easily. I wiped out the inside of the base with a damp cloth and then I put a drop or two of WD40 at the top of the white plastic pieces and rubbed it up and down the length of all 3 of the white plastic pieces (this being done with the base lying on its side so the WD40 doesn't drip down into the mechanism). Then, with base upright, I used a screwdriver to try to manually push the white plastic pieces down. It worked. Of course before doing any of this - be sure the thing is unplugged (duh!).

The base is stuck on. I was able to take base off.sunbeam oskar


Ours is hard to remove, too. I just hold the base with both hands, then put my left thumb and right index fingers on the parts of the bowl where it attaches to the base. Then push it, if I remember correctly, clockwise. This works far better than gripping the entire bowl.

Cuisinart dlc-7 superpro food processor won't run.


The DLC-7 SuperPro is awesome -- very powerfull. Be aware they are 1.5 horsepower; the blade can take your hand completely off in a blink of an eye. Because of the potential danger, SAFEGUARDS are in place such that everything must be aligned and in correct position or it WILL NOT POWER-UP. So, yes, is very likely the safety switch.

Simple test: Use just the BASE, (no work bucket, no top, no blades), such that if it starts, only the spindle will turn. There is a little black button on the base, just back of the spindle. Use a chop-stick to depress it. Plug-in, press the button w/chop-stik, press the PULSE button. It should power up.

Presuming it powered up okay, the "problem" is probably in how the unit is assembled; such that the button is depressed properly.
1. The work bowl must be all the way down on the base, and the alignment column in the back, work bowl base skirt turned to the "Hard Stop". It will feel very solid when docked properly.
2. The top inserts and rotates into and snaps into position while pressing the plunger into the button.

It all sounds too easy, but if something is just a little off, the plunger doesn't plunge ind the power doesn't go on.

These are FABULOUS machines -- spend the time into getting it working. The near- equivalent if something this robust and powerful in today's products will cost nearly a THOUSAND dollars - seriously.

Motor runs but switch won't activate despite new parts


Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked position. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work.
