Question about Cuisinart DLC-2011 PowerPrep Plus Food Processor

The machine suddenly won't run!

Everything is assembled correctly and plugged in, but nothing happens when I press ON. This despite the fact that it just pureed my first batch of vegetables very easily. Please help!

    I received my food processor one year ago as a gift. I used it twice since then. When I went to make my yearly potato latkes for Hanukkah, the machine didn't work. The red light goes on but none of the buttons work. I had to hold down the little black button above the on buttons for it to work, so I know the motors not burned out. HELP!

    Have only used this a few times in the past year. I need to use it now and it will not start. Everything is assembled correctly. This is bad timing, Xmas dinner is 1/2 done. Expected better quality from cuisinart.

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.

New magimix won't start

It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

Hamilton beach food processor won't turn on

DYI fix job on mine. DIsassembles base and switch assembly. Added a rectangular piece of plastic just above litlle balck trigger switch. Taped switch casing's side (not my plastic piece) so that my plastic piece would not fallout. Re-assembled. Voil?. Problem was that travel length of whole trigger mechanism was a bit too short to trigger the switch. With the added plastic piece, travel was extended a little to make the whole thing work, but not so much so that it would always unsafely stay ON when plugged. Tried various other gluing options on other pieces before that, but nothing would hold.

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 machine won't turn on

I solved it myself. I kept re-assembling it over and over and kicked it a little. Something must have jolted lose. Because it suddenly turned on. I just wonder, if the more knowledgeable folks out there realize something I don't? Maybe the switch is getting on the blink?? I should not have to jolt it to get it to work. But, anyway, that's what helped in my case.

Cuisinart won't pulse

I started from scratch with the assembly instructions. Got it together correctly and now everything works.
