Your food processor may operate normally after cooling down. However, there is a possibility that the motor became so overheated an internal thermal fuse opened up in which case repair or replacement may be required

Phips food processor hr2833 motor availiabilety and cost since it is slow running and smoke coming up and no speed

Brushes may be bad. Heating the windings and glue, causing the smoke. It is a fire hazzard if contunues. Is it worth it to have the motor rebuilt? That is, if the heat damage isn't severe.

I think my magic bullet over heated and now it won't work. I could smell burning plastic and now when I try to use it, it won't blend. Any suggestions. I hate to buy a new one because I don't need all...

The Magic Bullet power base is designed with HIGH TORQUE MOTORS and it is NOT TO BE USED FOR MORE THAN A MINUTE PER USE.Otherwise its gonna last a long time. You need to buy a new one or a refurbished one. Search google with keywords "amazon magic bullet power base".

I have a kitchen aid food processor, it is on, but motor doess no

This sounds like an issue relating with the assembly of the machine. The motor is definitely getting power if the indicator is lit. However, Kitchenaid food processors are designed (as a safety feature) to remain unengaged if the unit is not assembled in such a way. Here is the proper assembly:

Please disassemble the unit. This means: removing the blade, removing the work bowl, the work bowl cover, and unplugging the unit.

Starting with the work bowl: place the handle at the 9 o'clock position, which is out to the left. Rotate downward to the 6 o'clock position until it locks in, centered over the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid.

Depending on which food processor you have, you may need the feed tube pusher depressed at least half way down the feed tube.

Plug in the unit. The blade does not have be installed for unit it to work at this point, assuming everything is assembled properly and the motor is functioning. The motor should now be working.

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.
