SOURCE: cuisinart 7 cup food processor wont' start

Remove the work bowl completely. Turn the machine on and use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on the base of the food processor. If the motor doesn't spin, it needs repair. If there is spinning:
Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked psoition. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work.

SOURCE: cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.

I wrote in December with my problem and went on the web sites mentioned. A cover only cost $69.00. A new bowl and cover was $99.00. I only needed the cover. The new cover did not work and I ended up going to Macy's when they had the DLC-8S on sale for $99.00 and bought a new one. I took my blades with me and they fit the new machine. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY (unless you find an old machine at a yard sale) THE PARTS COSTS AS MUCH AS A NEW MACHINE ON SALE. ees

Motor base cover for dlc 7 super pro


Try buying a new motor base on eBay. It's actually quite cheap. If you are daunted by the shipping cost of this monster, you can always ask the seller to sell you just the brown bottom cover. Under each foot is a screw which attaches the molded base it to the rest of the assembly. It's a lot cheaper to just have that part sent to you. This works as long as you are handy in making the switch of the base.

The bowl on my cuisinart food processor is locked in place. How can I unlock it to remove the bowl?


You don't say what model, but all Cuisinarts have a safety interlock built in to the bowl assembly. The cover must be removed from the bowl to release this interlock before you can remove the bowl from the motor base.

CUISINART FOOD PROCESSOR MP14 WON'T TURN ON ..NOT EVEN THE RED LI


You should not have taken it apart - that unit has a fantastic warranty. Call Cuisinart and get it repaired - don't even hint that you took it apart, or your warranty is void.

jo82 - here is how to test your motor to be sure -
Remove the workbowl completely, plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the machine on, take a pen and press in the little black/dark gray button on top of the base. If you hear spinning, then the motor is fine.

If the motor is fine, put the work bowl back in place with handle facing fromt of machine, lid lined up with bowl, and pusher sleeve with metal element lined up with front of machine.

If the motor test failed, call Cuisinart and get the unit repaired.

Plastic housing cracked Cuisinart DFP-11 Deluxe food processor


The Motor Shaft Cover parts are not shown on the Cuisinart website under parts, but they are available if you call Customer Service. These parts are quite inexpensive (often $3 + s&h). Have your model number ready, and they can get the right one out to you.

DLC-7 missing a piece?


The workbowl has a spring-loaded assembly inside. You can see it through the plastic. When the workbowl cover is in place and locked, it depresses the button on the base. If this is not happening, then you need to determine whether the workbowl or the cover is at fault. Once you figure that out, you need to replace the faulty one. I usually get my replacement parts at GourmetDepot.com.

Motor switch not activating on a dfp-14ts


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.

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.

I can't get my food processor (DLC-2007N) to start. It looks like everything is locked in place, and the light goes on, but the motor won't start.


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Good luck!

Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the hollow feed tube facing the back of the processor.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the sliding lock switch facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If your food processor still does not turn on, call Cuisinart and see if you are eligible for an in-warranty repair - it has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!
