Question about Cuisinart DFP-14BC Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

My Cuisinart food processor won't start!

My Cuisinart food processor won't start (it's the stainless steel 12 or 14 cup version)! It was a gift less than a year ago and ran fine, then all of a sudden it won't turn on at all. It doesn't make any noise, nothing turns... help! I checked the fuse on the outlet I was using, and can't find any reset button on the bottom or back of it to check that as well.....

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

Check the manual for any troubleshooting tips. If it still doesn't work then check the warranty on the processor as it may need to be replaced.

Need a instruction book or manual for cuisinart 7 cup food proces


All manuals for models made in last few years are on Cuisinart website.

Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl
You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

Cuisinart DLC- 8M


Those older Cuisinart food processors have motors that generally last forever. But a replacement bowl can cost $118.00 or more. The newer processors like the DLC-8S do have a 3-year general warranty and a 5-year motor warranty. The new DLC-2011, 2007, 2014 series etc. have 10-year motor warranties. I like the collect the oldies, but the new ones have few problems even though they are made in China. If an old processor's plastic breaks, you have to buy a completely new bowl set - if a new processor's plastic breaks, then you can buy a single component piece to solve the problem. Hope this helps.
