Question about Cuisinart DFP-14BC Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

Wouldn't start: My machine worked fine when I gave to my wife last Christmas. Then for some reason would not go on. Finally I determined that the white plastic piece that pushes the rod down onto the safety switch was not functioning properly. Had to jury-rig a toothpick to hold the white piece in place (NOT a safe procedure I realize) but a short term fix. What can I do in the long-term?

Repair or replace is the simple answer but sometimes innovative solutions work just as well. The plastic piece-switch combination ensures that the machine cannot be started unless everything is in place properly.

SOURCE: Won't start

Make sure the work bowl handle is locked in place so that it is facing the front of the processor (same side as the on and off switches).

Make sure the feed tube of the lid is facing toward the back of the processor and that the plastic or metal rod of the pusher sleeve is facing the back of the processor.

Note: this assembly only applies to the Cuisinart DFP-14 series - every Cuisinart has a slightly different assembly for it to turn on.

Won't start;


A possibility that the micro switch inside which is actuated when you put the top on......the one you are tooth picking....has become dislodged, or the grooves that the switch hold it in place have broken off. Is there anything rattling inside the mixer which would suggest that a piece of the casing has broken off. If you can disassemble it to this point where you can see the switch and there is damage around that area which makes the switch loose, you could use some hot glue to hold it firmly in place. Let the hot glue set solid before you use it.....especially as the switch completes an electrical circuit and hot glue in its liquid form s conductive! Always remember to remove the electrical connection before opening the unit. Failing this, it could possibly be that the switch needs replacing which is a far easier job. Switches are pretty comparable regardless of what brand mixer. Sometimes held in with a screw on opposing corners. So even eBay would probably have one. Good luck. On the bright side, your solution works, but on the dark side, using a plug socket to switch a unit off and on is tricky! Saranden.

That was sweet of your husband to do that for you but having tried the Conair food processor withn Giada De Laurentiis name on it, I found the thing not to be worth anything near what you paid for it. Spend a but more and get a kitchenaid or a Hamilton Beach. They are much better food processors. You may try to find the manual for it on www.manualsonline.com.

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.

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!).

it is either the seal around the blade shaft that is worn (but if it is worn so much that liquids can leak, then you probably heard the machine vibrate more than normal or sound screechy). Or it is the gasket at the bottom of the container that is not seated well or is out of shape. Goodluck, Macgivor

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.
