Question about Robot Coupe R100 10 Cups Food Processor
Our ancient robot coupe is acting up. While in the middle of mixing some particularly thick stuffing, it stopped working. Since the "off" button is long gone, we took the lid on and off a few times to no avail. Then, it turned on, ran for five seconds, and cut out again. It did this whenever we took the lid off and on, or every thirty seconds (or so) if we left it alone. Each cycle was preceded by an audible click from the machine.The machine also clicked once after it was unplugged.
It's not the building's electrical system turning it on and off- nothing else attached to those outlets had any issues. It seems like a function of the machine to keep it from breaking if it gets bogged down, but it won't stop doing it.
I asked the chef if we had an owner's manual- she thought that was the funniest thing she'd ever heard.
The clicking noise is an internal circuit breaker or motor protector. These things are not made to be bogged down or overfed. The motor is heating up & tripping the overload, after cooloing it resets. Time to buy a new one or get the motor replaced ($600-$800)
