Check the interlocking part on the bottom of the blade piece. This part can wear down and then not interlock properly therefore it does not spin anymore. You can buy a new one from the website but it costs $30 and it comes with a bunch of other stuff. It's called the deluxe upgrade kit.

Cuisinart mini-processor, motor runs but blades get stuck and motor just spins? I tried replacing blade, no help


The set screw on the blade assembly is loose. If the motor does not spin then that is a different story.

The motor post on my food processor has deteriorated to the point my blades will no longer turn (just sit there)Can I replace that part ?Or is it too hard for an amature fix it upper?Is that post even...


If the motor is running, the problem can be that the motor shaft is spinning inside the drive sleeve. Replace the sleeve. That is more common than a motor failure.

The motor runs but the shaft that turns the blade does not turn.


Depending on the processor there are a few things that would cause this. If it isone piece then there may be a little gear box or there can be a direct connect from the motor to a coupler of some sort. On the 'bowl' end where the blades are they will be attached to a shaft. So the gear box could be stripped or worn out, the coupler could be loose on the shaft, or the blades are loose. The last two are the most likely. Usually if it has a gearbox it will juice bricks.

You need to see if you just need a replacement bowl or if it is the drive end. This is a bit tricky but you need to remove the bowl (or blender or?) stop the blades with something other than a finger ie a chopstick or knife. Then try to turn the shaft or coupler. If it turns then something is loose on that end. If it won't that means the coupler and blades are still on. There may be a safety on the power/base that will stop it form working without a container so its a bit harder to check. Usually it is just a rod that is pressed down.
It's worth a try but if you just check the container end carefully it will tell you just as well.

Once you know which end is the problem you can figure out what to do with it. If it is the blade and container end. That can be replaced fairly inexpensively. If it is the power end that can be as much or more than a entire new blender. You can get repair parts from the manufacturers repair depots or a repair parts place. A quick search with the make and model and repairs parts should find you several sources. As well you can go to the company website and look for repair under support.

Motor works but will not turn on


You can test the motor by plugging the food processor in, pressing the on switch and using a pen to press the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor. As long as it spins, the motor is definitely good. Next, unplug the food processor. For the food processor to work, you need to have the work bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve all inserted - if one part of the work bowl is not attached, then the food processor will not spin the blade. Once all three pieces have been inserted, plug it in and turn it on. If the blade is still not spinning, then there is a problem with the element that runs from the back of the pusher sleeve down through the work bowl that triggers the motor button. In that event, you can go to Cuisinart's website and order a new bowl, lid, and/or pusher sleeve - if you see any obvious damage to one part, you can order just that one part. If it is not apparent which part is damaged, order the whole work bowl. The work bowl parts are expensive, so I would just write down the part numbers from Cuisinart's website and find them cheaper elsewhere. There is also a video on the website that shows you how to use the food processors - the first part of the video describes work bowl asssembly. Once you get this food processor working, it is going to last forever. Have fun!

Bravetti Chopper Model FP 105H


Not positive as to your problem, but I was just given one of these and thought it didn't work. On closer inspection, I found a little switch that needs to be depressed from the bottom side. When I pressed it with a tiny screwdriver while holding down the bar on top, the motor runs!

I just have the white top with the motor and the glass jar thing. So I'm on a search for whatever is supposed to fit between them. There's room for a seal between the two, and I imagine it has something to push the tiny button, to activate the motor (guess technically it's a safety interlock).

In case it isn't obvious where that button is, turn the motorized plastic top upside down and look at the center. There's the star drive in the middle, and four little depressions, or holes around it. One of them isn't white inside. It's the magic switch! When I push it with a screwdriver and push the power bar, the thing comes to life...

If that works it for you, then your new mission is to figure out what pushes that button and put it in the right place.

Stopped working


The motor has a plastic gear that breaks easy. It is hard to find, but the solution is to replace the plastic gear.

If you try the instructions below, and the motor test fails, you can send it in to Cuisinart for a trade-in, but the trade-in will be just as expensive as getting a new food processor (unless your product has an extra-long motor warranty):
