I had the same thing happen to me just last night after grating some parmesan. what ended up happening is that i put too much stress on it and one of the little catches on the side of the bowl welded itself to the lid. not enough to be permanently stuck, but enough to make it impossible to open.

i found that if i wedged a flathead screw driver underneath the side that was melted together, i was able to separate the two welded pieces, and then open the lid right as normal.

hope this helps.

otherwise, you'll have to go to gourmetdepot.com and order a new bowl and lid (30 bucks each)

I am also having the same problem. it happened as soon as i got done putting in some parmesan and grated it. never happened before and i've got a few cups of parmesan cheese just sorta wasting away inside the processor. very tempted to break the damn thing open and just buy a new processor from a different company.

Something I saw on Chowhound worked for me--turn the lid in the back-on direction, then twist it off!

Lid stuck on work bowl of kitchen aid processor


This tip is used to remove a stuck bowl from the base of a Kitchen Aid tilt-head mixer. It might work for your situation. Fill the bowl with very hot water (use the food shoot as a pour spout). Now use either frozen gel packs, or a bag of ice cubes, and lay the ice on top of the lid. Wait for a few minutes. The hot water with make bowl expand, ice will make lid shrink, thus loosening the tight lid. I'm assuming that the lid edge fits inside of the bowl, like most food processors do. Try to gently move the lid, and see if it'll give.

How do you unlock the lid on the food processor?


The locking happens at the handle. You need to turn the lid counter clockwise to take it off and clockwise to lock it into position.

Hamliton mini foodprocessor stopped working


Possibly the micro switch which is activated when the lid is turned into position. Sometimes a particle of food gets lodged in the opening and prevents the lid from engaging the switch.
Or maybe the wires in the plug have come loose.

Cannot turn the lid on to kitchenaid food processor


It sounds like you need a new working bowl. It is not uncommon for that safety switch mechanism to fail inside the handle.

I can't figure out how to use it.. I just want to make a smoothie!


You can get a manual at WWW. euro-pro.com.

In order to use the blender the food processor bowl and lid must be LOCKED in place. Turn the lid on processor until it's locked. Then you are ready to use the blender. Select desired speed or pulse.

In order to use the processor, remove the blender and place the gray lid in its place. It should be locked. The lid keeps the blender shaft from spinning and allows the shaft on the processor to turn.

To remove the processor bowl, gently lift up on the lid to unlock it and then turn it away from processor. Bowl lifts off. That's it! Enjoy!

Hope I have been of some help to you.

Tried to use my powerprep pluss cuisinart food processor and nothing happens. The on button lights up but nothing happens when i press the pulse button.


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!

Lid stuck on bowl of my Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus.


Generally they twist off, but on the DLC-2, if the lid won't come off, a replacement bowl and lid is around $18.00

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.

Food processor


It usually goes something like this, with minor variations depending on model number:
1. Remove the work bowl completely from the base
2. Plug the food processor in and turn it on
3. Use a pen to depress the dark grey/black button on the base – if it spins, proceed
4. Put the work bowl on the base with the handle facing the front of the food processor – slide the work bowl until it locks - the white tabs show in the openings on the bottom of either side of the workbowl
5. Place the lid on the workbowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the workbowl handle – slide the lid counterclockwise until it won’t slide any more
6. Place the pusher sleeve in the feeder tube of the lid with the lock facing the front of the food processor (may vary depending on model)
7. Slide the lock to the right into the locked position
The food processor should now work
