Question about Cuisinart BFP-703 SmartPower Duet Food Processor

1 Answer

Food processor died

The food processor attachment doesn't work anymore - you can turn the rotating piece at the bottom, but it doesn't turn the piece out the top, and therefore the blade. The blender attachment still works fine, so it's not the motor.

    Same problem, it seems as though there is a clutch that's worn in the gearbox because it won't produce any torque to cut, but mine will spin loosely when there's no resistance. I'm gonna take it apart and check it out.

The plastic "clutch" with the teeth is probably cracked or stripped. you can buy a replacement.

Our new food processor doesn't fit our old Bosch


There is a separate discussion on this on fixya. The plastic piece should automatically "retract" back into the handle when you attach the processor. Some have removed teh plastic piece and reports it works then, but you should not need to do that.

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.

Flashing Red Light, will not turn on


Something needs to be reinstalled or reset. You may not want to turn it on right now. If that is a warning lamp. Is this the first time used?If so, unplug it and use the blade tool to manually rotate the motor in direction of normal rotation, rotate several times and hands and tool clear, plug it in.

My food processor is ancient and works like a new one. but broke a piece (small nick) from the bowl. All blades work fine but cheese grater. The only thing I can provide for id number is CFP 9A. This is on...


You should probably not use the thing anymore. The type of plastic they used back then gets very brittle over time, and there's a chance that the bowl could shatter while you're using the processor. There's a chance that if that happens the safety switch will stay engaged and the unprotected blades will keep spinning, right where your hand is. It happened to me.

The Blender attachment will not turn, just grinds and smokes.


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.

Motor runs but switch won't activate despite new parts


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.

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!
