SOURCE: The bowl will not unlock

with that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.

Food processor not working


I would agree with the first poster about checking the lid interlock, other causes are bad motor or bad start/stop switch associated control board, first use your nose and smell near the bottom of the unit does it smell burnt like an old dusty space heater, this is a good indication the motor windings are bad, I would suggest you replace the entire machine as sone motors cost the price of a new one, however if nothing is burnt smelling and the lid is on then your control boad is the next possible culprit, depending on model they range from $45-$80.

I have a kitchen aid food processor kfpm775, I have had endless problems. I have a new bowl and lid,it worked once.It has been assembled properly and done the check on the motor, which seems fine.


To work properly the bowl needs to first be in the correct place, on model 770 which we have here it is handle in the middle at the front. Then the lid goes on, it's obvious which way is correct with that part and then the pusher must be in the tube to activate the safety cut off switch. It is very rarely the cutoff switch itself which is inside the motor housing. If you look at the motor unit without the bowl on you can see right in the middle up by the top of the housing a hole with white plastic inside it. That's the safety switch that all the levers in the bowl & lid activate. If you turn the unit on (no bowl) and push the run switch down then activate that safety switch be depressing it in with something plastic the motor should run. That will prove to you at least that it's not the motor. That model is close to end of life now, bowls & lids are scarce and the general purpose blade is finished.

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.

I plug my cuisinart and it will not start. It worked the last time I used.


Put the work bowl, lid, and pusher on one piece at a time - handle of work bowl faces the front of the food processor, hollow feed tube faces the back, and the sliding lock switch on pusher sleeve faces the front. Should turn on.

If it doesn't, test the motor - remove the work bowl and other parts completely. Plug the base in and turn it on, and use a pen to push in the dark grey or black button on top of the base - if it spins, the motor is still good - you may just need a replacement part. If it doesn't make a sound, it needs to be sent in to Cuisinart for repair.

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

Appears to be locked but won't turn on


Instructions only apply to Cuisinart DLC-2011 series:

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 lid lined up with work bowl handle.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with metal element facing the front of the food processor.

You should now be good to go.

Euro-Pro EP91 Quad-Blade 6 Won't Start


My wife was given this unit from an elderly gentleman that was done trying to make it work.
I just fixed the same problem as above. Note - I do not have a manual for this unit.
True above about the bowl cover being locked in position but found the key to make it work is also the white lid to the left of the bowl cover. I was locking and unlocking this white lid with no results. Then I removed the bowl cover and found the white lid cover was loose and easily removed this white lid to inspect inside ( why this cover removes I have no clue).
Anyway I was able to snap the white cover firmly on and turn counter clockwise to lock in place ( six o’clock position), then after putting the bowl cover back on and snapping in place it works.
Note - I do not need to turn the white lid cover to install or remove the clear bowl cover, this could be because it looks like one of the clear tabs might be broken on the locking area of the clear bowl cover. If you have two tabs the same shape on the bowl cover you may need twist the white lid clockwise to install and remove the bowl cover and counter clockwise to lock in place so the unit works, but now that my white lid is snapped firmly in place it hardly moves with the force of both hands trying to turn it.
Hope this helps someone.
Good Luck !

My food processer does not work


I had the exact same problem. The red light came on when I hit the "On" button, but nothing happened. Then I noticed that when the lid is locked into place, a small pin in the handle goes into a small hole in the base. I took a wooden chopstick and poked it in this hole in the base, and the unit started running. I put the bowl and lid back on the unit and locked them into place, and this time the unit ran just fine. Yeah! I will remember this the next time my unit won't run even though I know that I've properly locked down the bowl and lid. Good luck!
