Question about Cuisinart BFP-703 SmartPower Duet Food Processor

Grater/slicer doesn't spin on my Cuisinart BFP-703 food processor

I have a Cuisinart BFP-703 blender/food processor duo. Everything has been working great for several years, but now the grating/slicing disc doesn't spin when it is attached. All the other functions work just fine. I can't figure out if some tiny piece broke off that is necessary for spinning the grater or if it is just starting to poop out. Thanks in advance for any help on this one. Cuisinart was no help when I called.

The gear box spidle operates the regular s-shaped blade as well as the grating/slicing disc. Does the s-shaped chopping/grinding disc still spin? If not, you can get a new gear box. If it does spin, replace the grating/slicing disc - because the plastic may be cracked, as you say. All of these parts are still available from Cuisinart, so I'm not sure why they weren't any help - I've always been able to order from them.

Lights come on, motor turns briefly, then stops


Check that blade can turn easily with unit unplugged. Fix that first then replace the fuse.

Cuisinart smartpower duet BFP703 food processor repair manual


Oh some of these answers... the most common issue with blender is that the removable blade unit starts to jam. So :
1. unscrew it, clean it and make sure it turns easy
2. open the unit and replace the fuse that blew up because turning the blade became too hard.
Voila

My mini cuisinart stopped working


Place the gearbox on top of the blender/food processor
Place the work bowl over the spindle, with the handle facing the front of the machine - make sure the tabs lock into place.
Place the stem adapter on top of the spindle, then the blade.
Place the lid on top of the bowl, with the feed tube facing the back of the food processor. Then the pusher into the feed tube.

The Blender attachment will not turn, just grinds and smokes.


The motor shaft that spins the teeth that are on the base of the blender may be frozen up for some reason. If you purchased the duet within the last 3 years and have a receipt, call Cuisinart to get it repaired in warranty - even if you don't have a receipt, your serial number may still save you. If you purchased it more than 3 years ago, let me know.

Lights are on but it wont run


If you have had your blender/food processor for less than 3 years, call Cuisinart and get it repaired in-warranty. You can find a new BFP-703 from $80-$100, and even an in-warranty repair will cost you $20-$30 in shipping (just food for thought). If you are Out Of Warranty, let me know, and I can give you some diagnostic assistance - if the shaft is just locked up, and can be oiled, that is a pretty easy fix. Anything else wrong with the unit is going to be tricky, since original internal parts are not available for sale.
