You should not have taken it apart - that unit has a fantastic warranty. Call Cuisinart and get it repaired - don't even hint that you took it apart, or your warranty is void.

jo82 - here is how to test your motor to be sure -
Remove the workbowl completely, plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the machine on, take a pen and press in the little black/dark gray button on top of the base. If you hear spinning, then the motor is fine.

If the motor is fine, put the work bowl back in place with handle facing fromt of machine, lid lined up with bowl, and pusher sleeve with metal element lined up with front of machine.

If the motor test failed, call Cuisinart and get the unit repaired.

I have a Cuisinart 14 cup food processor which will not turn on


Hi-

We have a Cuisinart and these tools are very rugged- so I doubt that the motor is bad. My only suggestion would be to make sure that the safety catch is being actuated when you click the cover clockwise to secure the mixing chamber. There is a hole in the housing that the acuator pin sticks into to disengage the safety switch. Perhaps the switch is not being pressed off.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

FOLLOWED MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS BUT MACHINE DOES NOT START. WHEN OWNER USED IT LAST IT WORKED. ATTEMPTED TO REFIT BUT COULD NOT GET IT STARTED. MACHINE WAS PLUGGED INTO GOOD POWER SOURCE, NOTHING WRONG WITH...


One of the major problems I have seen with food processors is the safety switch, which will not allow the motor to turn on if the bowl and top are not properly seated. The lever and/or switch sometimes wear to the point that they no longer work (easily). I'd do a bit more checking before I discarded the machine.

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.

I can't get the blades on the processor. there is a holder that somehow snaps into the blades before they are put on the processor


The regular chopping blade requires a stem adapter. The other blades require the detachable stem. I would double-check the user manaul to get a visual on it. Cuisinart food processors are great, but they are also the hardest to assemble.

CAN'T GET TOP ON TO OPERATE AND CANNOT FIND CD FOR 14 CUP CUISINART FOOD PROCESSOR


Do these directions in reverse - (the how-to DVD is generic - not for each individual Cuisinart food processor):

Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl
You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

Cuisinart MP14 Will Not Turn On


Cuisinart Food Processors – Motor Test

First, do a motor test by removing the work bowl completely and using a pen to press in the grey button on top of the base (with the food processor turned on of course), toward the back. If the processor spins, the motor is still good. At that point, I would inspect the work bowl pieces, lid, pusher assembly, etc for cracks/damage. If all appears well, insert ALL the pieces back into place and try again. If even one piece is out of place, the processor will not spin.

If it no longer spins, the motor has a problem. (This one has a 20-year motor warranty)

Good luck!

My food processor just stopped working?


A Cuisinart food processor doesn't start before the top is assembled properly, that is a safety feature. Their strong motors can withstand also hard to cut ingredients.

The bowl will not unlock


with that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.
