Re: cuisinart food processor

I went through the same it turns out, everything was locked into place but I had the handle in the back rather than the front where the sensor is. Good luck. I hope that helps you.

I have a Kitchen aid food Processor no longer under warranty. I checked all the troubleshooting suggestions in the manual and all appears as it should. but when pressing the button nothing happens, w

Remove everything and have just the bare motor, plug it in and press the run/go button while at the same time depressing the safety microswitch activator at the front, just above the buttons where it would be hidden by the bowl if the bowl was on. If it runs then you have a lid or a bowl problem, if it doesn't run you have an inside the motor housing problem. Lid problems are more common than bowl problems but there is no guarantee yours will be the most common.

Very frustrated with kitchenaid food processor - using any slicing disk only the first batch of food works, when you put in the 2nd batch nothing happens

Mine is older and works fine once I realized bowl has to be snapped into place before the cover and then the cover has to be locked in. This activates a small button at the base of the bowl that activates a safety switch.

My Oster 3212 food processor will not turn on.

You have to make sure that both the bowl and the cover are locked into place. Sometimes if you wiggle it a bit, it will go into the right spot. Make sure that the outlet you are using works.

Hamilton Beach food processor

make sure bowl and lid are on correctly. If not, it wont run. Both have safety switches where they lock onto the unit. If latch tab is broken, you will need new bowl or lid. If still nothing, switch itself is bad

When i try using it, nothing happens. i cannot

Remove the work bowl, blades, etc from off the base.
Plug the processor in and press the ON pedal down.
Use a pen to press in the rubber button on top of the base - you should hear a sound.
Now reassemble the bowl - lock the bowl in so that the handle faces front; insert blade of choice; place the tab under the feed tube of lid slightly left of center of the work bowl handle and slide the lid counter-clockwise until it clicks into place; insert pusher and make sure it locks into place.
You should be good to go again.

It won't turn on

The work bowl and lid must be locked together in a specific order or else the processor will act dead. If your DFP-3 has a "tower" on the back, make sure the tab on the lid connects to this tower. If your model does not have a tower, call Cuisinart to verify the correct assembly - 1-800-726-0190

My Cuisinart food processor won't start!

Make sure work bowl handle is locked in so that the handle is facing the front of the processor, and that the feed tube and metal rod of the pusher are facing the back of the processor. If it is assembled in this way and still won't turn on, call Cuisinart for assistance, as you may have concelaed damage to one of the work bowl parts. 1-800-726-0190

Unit assembled, lights are on (pulse, on) nothing happens

The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. I am thinking this is an issue of assembly because the light is on, so the unit is definitely getting power.

Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.

Power is available (light is one) but nothing

Sounds like a safety feature working. Unplug. Take apart as if you are going to clean it. Check all parts carefully to see if there is anything broken, like a nub.(Are all parts there?) Put back together, making sure they are fully engaged. Plug in and try. This happened to my food processor and it was a bit of dried food stuck in the bowls sliding track that kept it from clicking fully connected. Hope this helps!
