Question about Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic Food Processor
Hi all, I have a Cuisinart classic food processor which I would love to get going.
It has been in storage for a while and since being packed away has stopped working. I am not a whiz with electronics but I can use a multimeter and can tear down rebuild most this. In sourcing the issue I have stripped the unit down to a point where I can test each component and here is what I have found:
- Power coming into the unit is a steady 127v (I am using a transformer as I live in New Zealand where we use 240v).
- Power going to the switch (when switched off)is also 127v.
- When the switch is triggered the power drops to zero at the switch.
-When the switch is triggered the power at the SIEMENS motor start (capacitor?) drops from 127v, going in to zero and whats coming out is 14v
-This same 14v is what is measured across the motor when the switch is depressed.
So I am guessing that the motor start unit is shot as this reads "150Vac" but is only kicking out 14v when the switch on and the motor states it needs 110V to run.
I can run other test with guidance and would also be interested to hear if I can test the motor itself by wiring it straight up to the 127v coming into the unit, or will this be to much for a 115v motor?
No, don't wire the motor staight to the motor, you will have it fried, the capacitor you are referring also acts as a regulating device to have a steady 150vac, if that's what you read on the cap. have you tested the line from the switch to the cap, is there voltage? if yes, go after the cap to motor, if the voltage drops or runs to zero, definitely your cap is defective, replace that, but do not connect the motor straight to 127 v, or your motor would be toast running for sometime, 5 to mins max.

This motor look like an AC motor. If it is an 110V AC motor, the 127V is a little high for it. If it have + or - 10% Tolerance the the Voltage is not too bad. It should power it up. Try the motor directly IF IT IS AN AC MOTOR. Otherwise get a DC voltage and test the motor on a DC voltage. Check for shorts on the motor. Also check for shorts on the PCB if there is a PCB.
