Sounds like you've lost a motor. Same thing happened with my Kitchen Aid. Toasted motor.

    It has hardly been used. Could it be a fuse?

    They don't have fuses.You have a red light that indicates it is receiving power. Were you trying to process some stringy meat or were you putting it through a pretty good load? It only takes one good strenuous duty to hurt the Cuisinart. I did it on my "Bullet Proof" Kitchen Aid! Gristle got wound up under the blades and just bound it up to a slow and painful *****.

    No, have only blended runny batter, ice cream shakes, juices, gravey, and soups. The spindle can be rotated easily in the base by hand but doesn't budge when any buttons are pressed.

    Hope it's still under warranty.

Lights come on, motor turns briefly, then stops


Check that blade can turn easily with unit unplugged. Fix that first then replace the fuse.

Cuisinart smartpower duet BFP703 food processor repair manual


Oh some of these answers... the most common issue with blender is that the removable blade unit starts to jam. So :
1. unscrew it, clean it and make sure it turns easy
2. open the unit and replace the fuse that blew up because turning the blade became too hard.
Voila

My mini cuisinart stopped working


Place the gearbox on top of the blender/food processor
Place the work bowl over the spindle, with the handle facing the front of the machine - make sure the tabs lock into place.
Place the stem adapter on top of the spindle, then the blade.
Place the lid on top of the bowl, with the feed tube facing the back of the food processor. Then the pusher into the feed tube.

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.

Grater/slicer doesn't spin on my Cuisinart BFP-703 food processor


The gear box spidle operates the regular s-shaped blade as well as the grating/slicing disc. Does the s-shaped chopping/grinding disc still spin? If not, you can get a new gear box. If it does spin, replace the grating/slicing disc - because the plastic may be cracked, as you say. All of these parts are still available from Cuisinart, so I'm not sure why they weren't any help - I've always been able to order from them.

Food processor


If the blade is actually fused, I would seek professional help to avoid slicing your fingers off. You can test to see if it is fused by removing the lid of work bowl, twisitng work bowl to the left, and removing the work bowl - if work bowl will not come off (difficult even under normal circumstances), then find out from Cuisinart if you are still under warranty.
