Question about Food Processors

Open Question

I have a 5100 food processor which I have used occasionally ( a handful of times a year) for 5 years or so then not at all for the following 10 years or more. Started using again a few months ago at 2-4 times a month when suddenly yesterday while i was processing a cupful of roasted peanuts it suddenly dropped in speed to 2-4 revs a second. Any idea what may be wrong and how to fix?

SOURCE: It just stopped working

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!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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

I just go a foodnetwork 12 cup food processor and it will not turn the blade. The motor is on, everything is on right but it will not turn the blade.


The same thing happened to me. I took it back to Kohls. It was 1 year old and I only used it like 4 times. The motor would run but the blade wouldn't turn. Maybe because Kohls is busy this time of year, the Customer Service guy didn't even ask when we bought it. It was obviously last year's model because the color was white not the current black. Anyway, the FN Food Processor says they have a 2 year warranty so that could be route you could take also. I know this isn't REALLY fixing YOUR food processor, but it would fix your problem.

Timer works but machine doesn't turn/run


It sounds as if you may need a control board for your food processor, it could be that there is a loose or burned connection inside your unit and could be fixed by disassembling it. another option is to call the Cuisinart phone line located on the bottom of the processor or on the user manual. Unfortunately most control boards are too costly to repair or replace, and your machine is not under warranty. most times they are deemed a ``throw away``. hope this helps.

Thanks

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.
