Question about Cuisinart BFP-703 SmartPower Duet Food Processor

1 Answer

Lights all Come on, Then spins up a few seconds then dies

When I go to use the machine, I press the on button, then all the different speed setting lights come on, one by one, until they are all lit.  I can't choose any of the speeds, the keypad is ignore.  Once they are all lit, the machine starts on its own and spins for about 10 seconds then stops.  I still can't do anything and all the lights turn off.  I can press "off" where I hear a click.  I can then press "on" again to repeat the process.
Any ideas?

Remove work bowl completely - then try the various buttons. If no spinning occurs with work bowl removed, the motor is dead. Find out from Cuisinart if you are still under warranty, and send in for repair.

I press a button n it blinks then all the buttons start blinking and the motor never starts.


The motor is most likely open circuit. Solutions are going to be either replace the motor OR if the thermal fuse on the windings is blown you will need to get one of the same value and replace it. The value is written on the fuse and it is under some fibreglass tape on the field winding with the aluminium clip around it. You need to remove the motor completely to do it.

Lights come on, motor turns briefly, then stops


Check that blade can turn easily with unit unplugged. Fix that first then replace the fuse.

Kenwood a710a mixer suddenly lacks power


sounds like the motor armature is burn. Dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the ehd of the armature. They should be bright copper colour. I the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor.

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


Hi,

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.

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.

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!

No instruction manual


First, test the motor by completely removing the workbowl. There should be a dark grey or black button on the base of the processor. Using a pen (not your finger), press and hold the button while turning the machine on - if it does not spin, the motor is dead. If it does spin, then you should reattach the work bowl, slide the lid into place, and then slide the pusher sleeve into place. Slide the pusher into locked position. The link to the manual that will help you make sense of all this is here:

Robot Coupe clicks, runs 5 seconds, stops for 30 seconds, clicks, runs 5 seconds...


The clicking noise is an internal circuit breaker or motor protector. These things are not made to be bogged down or overfed. The motor is heating up & tripping the overload, after cooloing it resets. Time to buy a new one or get the motor replaced ($600-$800)
