Send audio from board via the "Aux1 Out" to the input of the effects unit. Now connect the output of the effects unit to "ST1" and control the amount of effects to each channel via each channels "Aux1" control. Adjust the Aux1 controls in the output stage (controls on the right side) for proper levels.
Older boards called this connection "effects send" for the output to the effect, and "effects return" for the effects out back to the board. The better choice was to use "effects send" into the effect but connect the effects output to an unused channel on the board. Using this scenario allowed EQ adjustments to be made before mixing it out to the amps and speakers.
You are aware that there are no built in effects, correct? Are you connecting an off board effects unit and having problems with that? You should be connecting the effects send on this mixer to the input of the effects unit - then the output of the effects unit to the effects return on the mixer. With the effects send control on the appropriate channel turned up, you should see signal hitting the effects unit. You'll need to adjust the effects return on the mixer to hear the effects signal included in your mixer output.
That's basically normal actually...however it depends on which aux send you're using. If you use aux 1 for the effects, you can use the pre/post switch on the master aux 1 send to switch it to pst fader....now your mute switch should kill the effects as well. Aux 2 is good to use for monitors where you don't need to return them to the mixer.
Effects plug into mixer, mixer plugs into power amp. Others may want the mixer and the effects plugged into the power amp for the most available inputs. (when multiple inputs are available.)
Effects and mixer are a line level output and the mixer can be considered a line level input as well. A mic mixer has gain amplifiers for the inputs that are below line level such as unamplied microphones. It is possible to parse to absurdity, but the gist of it is above assuming you do not want to apply the same effects to everything all at once.

This mixer has a multi-effects processor onboard, but the key is understanding the audio signal chain.
There is a chance that you have your input audio going through an undesired effect, but without knowing your setup (input source, connections, mixer settings), it would be difficult to pinpoint the problem.
This is in general for Behringer mixers since you did NOT tell us a model number...
To use the effects you adjust the FX knob for EACH channel for the amount of the mic or input you want to send to effects from that channel. This is the "send" mix.
You dial in one of the effects based on the list near the effects selection window with the selector knob and the number will change and start flashing. You press down on the selection knob which will enter the new effects number and the number will be solid and not flashing.
Then there is a knob to select how much of the OUTPUT of the effects you want to go to the main and sometimes one for the amount to the monitors.
That is all there is to it. The effects can be gated by a foot switch input if you desire.
It is a good idea to include a model number as your thing is posted as if it is a PMP3000 mixer.
For dj use, industry standard would be something like a Pioneer DJM600 mixer. 4 channels w/ effects and a mic input.
To use kaoss it's best to go into Send/Return input through the effects. By tapping on Send, all sound is sent out to the kaoss pad, and comes back into the mixer into the Return inputs. By doing this you can have the kaoss pad on sitting next to the mixer ready to apply effects all the time. Then connect the master outputs from mixer into your amp, or straight to powered speakers.
Kaossilator is more of an instrument than effects unit, so plug in to channel 3 after your 2 cdjs in channel 1 and 2. You still have a spare channel left.
I use 2 x 1200s and 2 x cdjs with kaoss pad through effects channel in this way. A 4 channel mixer is plenty.
