Food Processor's light turns on but blades do not turn. Worked for about 5 minutes than stopped. It started to work again for about 10 seconds running sluggishly and sputtering, then stopped.


There will be a switch activated by correct engagement of the bowl, lid and pusher. Locate and activate that switch without the bowl on and see how it runs then. If it does then you need to figure out which of the bowl parts is not operating the switch properly. If activating that switch changes nothing then then you will need to be looking inside the motor housing, so far it's a place I haven't been on that model.

Closing the lid completely the processor does not work


Take everything off and see if you can activate the motor with the safety switch. It is located at the front above the button panel normally covered by the working bowl. Mixer plugged in and turned on press that button switch in with something non metallic. If the motor goes then fault will be with the mechanisms that activate that switch in either the bowl or the lid. The lids are slightly more likely to be the problem than the bowl. Only a new part will properly solve it.

Won't start;


A possibility that the micro switch inside which is actuated when you put the top on......the one you are tooth picking....has become dislodged, or the grooves that the switch hold it in place have broken off. Is there anything rattling inside the mixer which would suggest that a piece of the casing has broken off. If you can disassemble it to this point where you can see the switch and there is damage around that area which makes the switch loose, you could use some hot glue to hold it firmly in place. Let the hot glue set solid before you use it.....especially as the switch completes an electrical circuit and hot glue in its liquid form s conductive! Always remember to remove the electrical connection before opening the unit. Failing this, it could possibly be that the switch needs replacing which is a far easier job. Switches are pretty comparable regardless of what brand mixer. Sometimes held in with a screw on opposing corners. So even eBay would probably have one. Good luck. On the bright side, your solution works, but on the dark side, using a plug socket to switch a unit off and on is tricky! Saranden.

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.

My kitchenaid food processor won't work


Does the actuator push down far enough to catch the button at the bottom? I repaired one simply by adding a vinyl screw cover to the top of the button so it was tall enough to be reached by the actuator.

Operating switch


You could try a shot of contact cleaner inside the guts of the switch. Perhaps over time some sticky residue has built up causing the switch to become frozen. Unplug the unit, spray inside the guts of the switch, work the switch back and forth. repeat unit the switch loosens up. BE SURE to use a contact cleaner that won"t damage plastics, will say on label!

Safety-rod of bowl does not depress microswitch of Cuisinart processor


Cuisinart does not have the original pieces available, but you can order a replacement work bowl, lid, sleeve, etc that will work from the company. First do a motor test to make sure the motor is still working:

Cuisinart Food Processors – Motor Test

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!
