Question about Food Processors
Not sure if you found the solution by now but we recently had a similar issue. Make sure the bowl is put on such that the handle is facing the front of the processor. There is a little black button that gets depressed when the lid gets put on. We had to get the thing to work one night and spent hours trying to get the processor on and then trying to get a blender to work before finding the problem.
Hope this helps.

It's very easy--but you have to know the trick--I know 'cause it took me awhile to figure it out. Place the machine with the on-off/pulse button on your left. Lock the container in place--the handle will be on your right. Put the blade on the shaft. This is the trick: Lock the lid in place so that the shoot is directly in front of you and the "***" slides into the **** on the left of the machine (between the container and the inside of the machine, left of the on-off button). Good luck!

It usually goes something like this, with minor variations depending on model number:
1. Remove the work bowl completely from the base
2. Plug the food processor in and turn it on
3. Use a pen to depress the dark grey/black button on the base – if it spins, proceed
4. Put the work bowl on the base with the handle facing the front of the food processor – slide the work bowl until it locks - the white tabs show in the openings on the bottom of either side of the workbowl
5. Place the lid on the workbowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the workbowl handle – slide the lid counterclockwise until it won’t slide any more
6. Place the pusher sleeve in the feeder tube of the lid with the lock facing the front of the food processor (may vary depending on model)
7. Slide the lock to the right into the locked position
The food processor should now work

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 lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.
If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Whoops, when putting together I failed to insert the feeder cup. When I did that it worked! I should have more carefully followed the assembly instructions. Thanks for your help. What a great web site
