I have not been able to get this to work since i bought it a year ago. i followed the directions over and over again and the power still does not come on. i am unable to use this appliance after spending so much money on it. it just will not turn on.
I HAVE TH EP90, AN EARLIER BUT ALMOST IDENTICAL MODEL. THE OTHER DAY i USED IT AND TURNED IT ON AND IT STAYED ON FOR 10 SECONDS AND THEN WOULD NOT TURN ON AGAIN. I FIDDLED WITH THE GRINDING CUP AND BANGED THE UNIT ON THE COUNTER....I DON'T KNOW WHICH ACTION DID THE TRICK BUT IT THEN WORKED!
I have been having the same problem. I know on the chopper, it has to be locked in real tight or it won't go on, but right now, I am on line searching as I wanted to use the blender, and I can't get mine on.

Vintage equipment - hard to find a manual, and prior questions on FIXYA did not find a manual online. Might search on EBAY and Amazon periodically and see if someone has a manual included with this very old appliance.
Hillary, I have the same problem. Do you think these are the edsels of the food processors. I paid almost $200 for mine, haven't ever used it since I bought it last year. Have you resolved your problem>
Most likely it will be to do with the bowl or the lid. The safety mechanisms in both parts are likely culprits, they operate a micro switch just above the switch panel and hidden by the base of the bowl. Have just the bare motor plugged in and turned on with the run button depressed. Now with something plastic depress that small black button, the motor will likely start running. That proves motor is fine and you need to figure out which of the bowl or lid is the faulty part. The pusher needs to be in the lid tube before the motor will run in case you have forgotten.
since I did not get a response from fix it and could not find a local repair store from fix it I called Waring the manufacturer and was told the motor will not work as a safety precauition until the top is locked in once I did that it worked fine.
If you had responded to me in anyway except to sign up and pay for your service I would have signed up now I am just annoyed .
I have an order of parts coming that I won on eBay, which I wanted for the DoughWorks, plus to replace my lid for the Vegetable Chef, as mine has a broken strap. I never had a manual, as I bought my processor second-hand over 25 years ago. I just figured out on my own how to use it. The box of parts I am getting has a manual, and I will be happy to scan it. Please send an email to [email protected] and put La Machine Manual in the subject line.
The motor shaft that spins the teeth that are on the base of the blender may be frozen up for some reason. If you purchased the duet within the last 3 years and have a receipt, call Cuisinart to get it repaired in warranty - even if you don't have a receipt, your serial number may still save you. If you purchased it more than 3 years ago, let me know.
I bought a DCL 8M about 20 years ago and still have the original manual. Mashing potatoes is one of the few tasks that the manual discouraged. The potatoes turn into glue. I tried mashing potatoes with the flat blade and extra liquid. It still tasted awful. I do puree potato soup in batches, First I mash all the solids (potatoes and leek or potato and tomatoes), then add the liquid. For some reason, pureeing the soup works well.
