Hillary, I have the same problem. Do you think these are the edsels of the food processors. I paid almost $200 for mine, haven't ever used it since I bought it last year. Have you resolved your problem>

Do these directions in reverse - (the how-to DVD is generic - not for each individual Cuisinart food processor):

Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl
You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

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 need replacement chopping blade. Help please


You should be able to do a search for your particular manufacturer and model food processor using one of the search engines. For example if you are looking for a Cuisinart model CH-4-DC chopper blade enter the search terms Cuisinart Model CH-4-DC chopper blade replacement in your search engine. Amazon is usually a pretty good place to start.

I have the 14-Cup Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor. Up until recently it was working fine. Recently when using the shredder blade, when I insert food into the feeding tube the blade stops...


If the unit works OK with other attachments and the problem is only with the one cup; then the blade may be loose and spins on the shaft, the connection gear under the bottom is worn or binding up. Debris is stuck around the blade shaft or from heating up the metal parts expanded and bind when turning.

I don't have an instruction manual (wasn't in the box) and I don't know how to use the slicing/shredding blades or the additional smaller bowls.


A manual for the FP-14C series which the Cuisinart site indicates is applicable to your specific model is available online:

http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/FP-14DCC_en.pdf

See page 8 for assembly instructions. Beginning on page 20 is an included recipe section.

For future reference available Parts & Accessories are listed here:

Won't start


Make sure the work bowl handle is locked in place so that it is facing the front of the processor (same side as the on and off switches).

Make sure the feed tube of the lid is facing toward the back of the processor and that the plastic or metal rod of the pusher sleeve is facing the back of the processor.

Note: this assembly only applies to the Cuisinart DFP-14 series - every Cuisinart has a slightly different assembly for it to turn on.

My brand new Cuisinart 14 cup food processor won't turn on. All the components are locked in place and it's plugged in. Help


First, do a motor test by removing the work bowl completely and using a pen to press in the grey button on top of the base (with the food processor turned on of course), toward the back. If the processor spins, the motor is still good. At that point, I would inspect the work bowl pieces, lid, pusher assembly, etc for cracks/damage. If all appears well, insert ALL the pieces back into place and try again. If even one piece is out of place, the processor will not spin.

If it no longer spins, the motor has a problem.

Good luck!

Power red llight is on, but the motor/blades won't go


Well, now I feel totally foolish. The handle on the bowl must be toward the front of the bowl, not the rear otherwise the operating post won't engage.
