Food Processor won't turn on?

Brand new out of the box. Has only three buttons, none of which do anything. Is there some kind of user safety lock that I can't see or is it just defective?

    I just got a brand new multipro food processor. i was able to get the blender to work with no problem. i assembled the food processor as directed, making sure the bowl locked into place, but the food processor won't work! the drive shaft doesn't seem to be able to lock into place and is a bit wobbly. is it supposed to be like that? what is wrong here??

Food processor housings MUST be assembled in a certain order. And each part usually clicks or snaps into place. When all parts are PROPERLY assembled, the safety interlock switch will engage. Until then, no workee.

When the top section is clicked on and on button or pulse or dough button pressed it doesn't go. took top off and pressed the little black button to simulate top being put on and still no result.


Try taking the bowl off and pressing the safety switch with a screw driver. If the processor turns on then you have a problem with the bowl, if it doesn't turn on then the issue is inside of the food processor, and usually internal parts are not available.

If you can find your model & brand information off of the base of the food processor we can look up replacement parts for you.

Thank you,

Hamilton Beach food processor


make sure bowl and lid are on correctly. If not, it wont run. Both have safety switches where they lock onto the unit. If latch tab is broken, you will need new bowl or lid. If still nothing, switch itself is bad

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.

Brand new food processor does not start Trying this for the first time just out of the box. No power. Tried both the "on" and "pulse" settings. (and yes, the outlet has power)


not sure what type you have. some have a tab/tang on the lid that when turned locks into side of processor. this is a safety switch. check lid for this. hope this helps. if not return for an exchange.

None of the buttons work on my Power Prep Pulse 11-CUP


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!

My brand new Cuisinart 14 cup food processor won't turn on. All the components are locked in place and it's plugged in. Help


First, do a motor test by removing the work bowl completely and using a pen to press in the grey button on top of the base (with the food processor turned on of course), toward the back. If the processor spins, the motor is still good. At that point, I would inspect the work bowl pieces, lid, pusher assembly, etc for cracks/damage. If all appears well, insert ALL the pieces back into place and try again. If even one piece is out of place, the processor will not spin.

If it no longer spins, the motor has a problem.

Good luck!

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

Appears to be locked but won't turn on


ah! well my mother just tried using her DLC-10S 7 cup food processor and she also encountered the same problem. It worked perfectly fine when she first used it around Christmas time but not anymore.

After almost smacking the hell out of it we discovered that there is a plastic tab on the lid towards the handle side. This plastic tab actually pushes a lever through the cup and into the base of the food processor.

New Bee actually mentions this above. The problem is that the flimsy plastic tab in the handle isn't stiff enough to push the lever down anymore. I'm amazed it worked the first time.

This is very much a design flaw by Cuisinart as there's no way this plastic tab would ever last.

Now there is a small opening in the case right above the plastic tab. To get our food processor going we just pushed a chopstick down on the tab and held it in place while the food processor runs.

This is very much a temporary solution until we get a new food processor, obviously a different model.
