I have the same problem, It is better after I scraped the top surface of the bowl with a supersharp knife held vertical to the top of the bowl lid, and removed the resulting burr from both sides of the bowl. I presume that it was too much friction between the mating parts of the bowl and the lids. It is better now and hopefully will be easier with use. The problem might have been insufficient cleaning of the mating parts after use and consequent gumming up.

Crusiart 14 cup food processor. No power worked once for about 10 seconds. Changed blade and no power.


Are you certain that your blade is seated properly and the top is locked in place?

The Cuisinart 7 cup food processor will not start?


Check out this options Remove the work bowl completely. Turn the machine on and use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on the base of the Food processor. If the motor doesn't spin, it needs repair. If there is spinning:Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked position. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work. This will help. good luck.

New magimix won't start


It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

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!

Can not get it to work


You definetly have to make sure the food cup holder is placed correctly in the bottom, and also have to make sure the top is turned securely until it cant go anymore so it will start spinning when you hit the button.

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.

Power red llight is on, but the motor/blades won't go


Well, now I feel totally foolish. The handle on the bowl must be toward the front of the bowl, not the rear otherwise the operating post won't engage.
