Question about Cuisinart DFP-14BC Custom Food Processor
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.

Cuisinart does not have the original pieces available, but you can order a replacement work bowl, lid, sleeve, etc that will work from the company. First do a motor test to make sure the motor is still working:
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.

Is the cover assembly engaged and locked into place? If you can't lock the cover into place, it's possible that part of the plastic on the cover assembly is broken and not engaging the white rod inside the bowl. Determine which part is at fault (either the bowl or the cover assembly) and replace it.

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.
