20 Most Recent Cuisinart DLC-2011 PowerPrep Plus Food Processor Questions & Answers


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.

Either locked motor or bad brushes in the motor.

Try making sure the attachments are "locked" in placed.

Hi,
Make sure that the cup is inserted properly and that it activates the switch...
Also make sure there is no debris in there that could block it from going in the whole way... it is very sensitive...
If that is not the problem, then return the unit... it has at least a 1 year warranty on it from the manufacturer..

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.

Use a ball-point pen to depress the button - your finger simply will not do.

This is only to test the motor.

Once it makes the proper sound, you are ready to assemble the workbowl - once properly assembled, the workbowl, lid, and pusher itself will push the button for you. On the DLC-2011, the proper assembly is for the work bowl handle to be locked toward the front of the processor. If you are still having trouble or you have a model other than the DLC-2011, call Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190 and they will help you with the assembly.

The manual indicates there is an auto-reseting thermal cutout that turns the motor off if overheated.

If there is an internal fuse that has blown, there LIKELY is other damage that needs to be addressed. A fuse will have markings on it for the value. An appliance repair part outlet should be able to supply parts for this unit.

I went through the same thing...as it turns out, everything was locked into place but I had the handle in the back rather than the front where the sensor is. Good luck. I hope that helps you.

I started from scratch with the assembly instructions. Got it together correctly and now everything works.
