Question about Cuisinart DLC-1 Mini-Prep Food Processor

Open Question

Will not turn on

I have a mini-prep and I plugged it in and it turned on.  However, once I added food and put the lid on, it will not turn on; nothing happens. I let it sit for a while, and tried again and it turned on, so I added one piece of onion, and again, it would not turn on.  Any help you can offer would be great!!!!

I would just remove and replace the work bowl, and then reposition the strainer, etc again. I don't know what the magic is, but if I just put everything back in palce exactly as the user manual lays out, I can always get it to work again.

Generally they twist off, but on the DLC-2, if the lid won't come off, a replacement bowl and lid is around $18.00

Make sure the tab on the lid is making contact with the "tower" in the back and that the work bowl is locked properly into place so that the plastic tabs show on each side toward the bottom of the work bowl.

My cuisinart DLC-1ss will not start once plugged in.


The bowl must be locked in the correct position for the unit to turn on.
Remove the bowl, place on unit and rotate into place.

It won't turn on


The work bowl and lid must be locked together in a specific order or else the processor will act dead. If your DFP-3 has a "tower" on the back, make sure the tab on the lid connects to this tower. If your model does not have a tower, call Cuisinart to verify the correct assembly - 1-800-726-0190

Can't get cuisenart pro 11 to start


I am assuming you have a DLC-8S Pro Custom 11, and not another Cuisinart food processor.

Remove the work bowl and all other parts completely from base.
Plug the base in, and turn it on.
Use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base.
If you hear a spinning or other noise, the motor is still good.

Now that you have verified that the motor is good:
Put each work bowl piece on one at a time - if you don't out it on one at a time, it will not lock in properly.
Put work bowl on with work bowl handle facing front, make sure bowl locks.
Put lid on with hollow feed tube facing the back of the food processor.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with sliding lock switch facing the front of the food processor.

You should now be good to go.

None of the buttons work on my Power Prep Pulse 11-CUP


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 hollow feed tube facing the back of the processor.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the sliding lock switch facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If your food processor still does not turn on, call Cuisinart and see if you are eligible for an in-warranty repair - it has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!

Cuisinart prep 11 Plus won't run.


Remove the work bowl completely and separate the work bowl, lid and pusher sleeve. Plug the base into the wall outlet and press the on switch. Use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the processor. If you don't hear a sound, then call Cuisinart and get it repaired. If you do hear a sound:
1. Put the work bowl on first, making sure the handle is facing front
2. Put the lid on, making sure the hollow feed tube is facing the back of the food processor
3. Put the pusher sleeve in, making sure the sliding lock switch faces toward the front of the processor

Turn the machine on - it should now be working
