    Your comment "if fuse is ok then switch may be faulty" doesn't indicate where the fuse is located. Must I remove the casing? Could you please be more specific. How do I find out if the fuse is ok or not ok? Thank you so much for any advice that would be helpful in fixing the problem.

    There is no "mains wire" and no "fuse". We are talking about a food processor which doesn't have fuses or wires . . . .check for continuity? What are you talking about?

    A woman in a kitchen preparing lunch does not have a "multimeter you can connect to the wires (to) check for continuity at both, switch on and off . . . . . cheers". You are not addressing a repairman; I am a home cook. I'm asking for helpful practical advice. You are not supplying it. Please refund my $6.00 payment.. Thanks.

I have a Cuisinart 14 cup food processor which will not turn on


Hi-

We have a Cuisinart and these tools are very rugged- so I doubt that the motor is bad. My only suggestion would be to make sure that the safety catch is being actuated when you click the cover clockwise to secure the mixing chamber. There is a hole in the housing that the acuator pin sticks into to disengage the safety switch. Perhaps the switch is not being pressed off.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

My Cuisinart food processor won't start!


Make sure work bowl handle is locked in so that the handle is facing the front of the processor, and that the feed tube and metal rod of the pusher are facing the back of the processor. If it is assembled in this way and still won't turn on, call Cuisinart for assistance, as you may have concelaed damage to one of the work bowl parts. 1-800-726-0190

Need circuit board for DLC 8-PLUS


Rather than replace the circuit board, you might consider going on Ebay and just buy a used replacement base. I got one a few months ago on Ebay at a fraction of the cost of buying a new food processor. Cuisinart parts are popular on Ebay.

Need a instruction book or manual for cuisinart 7 cup food proces


All manuals for models made in last few years are on Cuisinart website.

Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl
You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

Cuisinart DLC- 8M


Those older Cuisinart food processors have motors that generally last forever. But a replacement bowl can cost $118.00 or more. The newer processors like the DLC-8S do have a 3-year general warranty and a 5-year motor warranty. The new DLC-2011, 2007, 2014 series etc. have 10-year motor warranties. I like the collect the oldies, but the new ones have few problems even though they are made in China. If an old processor's plastic breaks, you have to buy a completely new bowl set - if a new processor's plastic breaks, then you can buy a single component piece to solve the problem. Hope this helps.

I can't get my food processor (DLC-2007N) to start. It looks like everything is locked in place, and the light goes on, but the motor won't start.


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Good luck!
