Question about Kenmore 219103 Food Processor

1 Answer

I have used my Kenmore food processor MAYBE 10 times. Yesterday I turned it on, lights came on but the motor just hums. Is my only choice to buy a new one? Because it sure won't be from Sears, if so.

I have the same problem with mine. It is almost certainly the motor start capacitor. I have been looking for a replacement capacitor from an outside source, but so far have had no luck. The capacitor used is an obscure size and model. I have found the manufacturer of the capacitor, but no electronic suppliers carry this brand. It is almost certainly going to be a Sears replacement part item.

I have used my 10 cup processor one time and now when I turn it on , you hear the motor but the blade doesn't turn

With the machine UNPLUGGED disassemble and check to see if the drive mechanism is engaged. Could be as simple as a loose screw in the coupling assembly. I no longer have my unit.. I tossed it in the trash and sent Sears a nasty letter.

Kenmore garbage dispsal that made humming noise for like 3 seconds then completly shut down. it's not the power. could the motor be burned out? i already checked the wiring.

Hi there: hate to say but it sounds like the Garb D.'s motor has failed. Perhaps due to a jam up in the blades. The motor will cook before the circuit breaker if the breaker it is on is greater than 15amp. Solution... Turn the power off and try to turn the grinding impeller blades.. If they spin freely on first attempt, which I doubt they will, then the motor is K-put. Hopefully it has a built in thermal trip and will reset itself. But while you have the power is off, clean it out. If you do that and it hums only, you will need to replace motor. sorry

I just go a foodnetwork 12 cup food processor and it will not turn the blade. The motor is on, everything is on right but it will not turn the blade.

The same thing happened to me. I took it back to Kohls. It was 1 year old and I only used it like 4 times. The motor would run but the blade wouldn't turn. Maybe because Kohls is busy this time of year, the Customer Service guy didn't even ask when we bought it. It was obviously last year's model because the color was white not the current black. Anyway, the FN Food Processor says they have a 2 year warranty so that could be route you could take also. I know this isn't REALLY fixing YOUR food processor, but it would fix your problem.

I have a small Cuisinart food processor and I cannot figure out how to turn it on. It has two levers low and high. I have it plugged in and the lid on? Please help. Fiona Slattery 858-752-8591


Your PowerBlend Duet™ comes with a food processor button. This button is the perfect speed for all your food processing tasks. Always use this speed when using the food processor. You may also use the Pulse button with this function for pulse-chopping.
To use your food processor, make sure that the bowl is assembled properly and the blade or slicing/shredding disc and the cover are locked into place.
When you use the control panel, the LED will light next to each button you press.
Press the On button. For continuous operation, press the Food Processor button. Motor will start if you have followed assembly instructions.
To turn motor off, press the Food Processor button again or the Off button.
For on/off operation, called pulse-chopping or pulsing, press the On button, press the Pulse button, and then press and release the
Food Processor button the desired number of times. Motor runs as long as you hold the Food Processor button down. The motor stops when you release control switch. Try it a few times.
You control the duration and frequency of pulses by the length of time you hold the Food Processor button down and the rate at which you press it. Pulses should be short bursts. Allow enough time between pulses to let food in work bowl fall to bottom.
Always use the Food Processor button for pulse/chopping. Never turn cover back and forth to start and stop processor.

Kenmore Food Processor Model 69703 Won't turn on

I had a hard time with this just have to be sure the bowl is locked in right to the base, and the cover is licked onto the bowl right, if one is not correct, the processor won't turn on, so keep fooling with it, look at the arrows and holes.
