Pulse/on switch does not depress to start the chopping process

I have been using the chopper successfully for about a year or two and it no longer works. The on switch does not depress enough to turn the chopper on.

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.

Hi my mom was using her new processor she got today and she put onions in when she noticed it pureed them and left chunks?


When you are trying to chop things in the magic bullet make sure that you use short pulsing movements, don't just hold it down. This will make things go mushy instead.

This is the advice they give on their website:
http://www.buythebullet.com/
You may be over processing your food by letting your Magic Bullet slip into Lock On Mode (see video demonstration of Lock On Mode) when you should be using the Pulse Technique (see video demonstration of the Pulsing Technique). Please read the Pulse Technique instructions on page 15 of the user manual or follow the steps shown in these video demonstrations and you'll be making perfect chopped onion, salsa and all your favorite textured foods in no time.

I have a small Cuisinart food processor and I cannot figure out how to turn it on. It has two levers low and high. I have it plugged in and the lid on? Please help. Fiona Slattery 858-752-8591


Hi,

Your PowerBlend Duet™ comes with a food processor button. This button is the perfect speed for all your food processing tasks. Always use this speed when using the food processor. You may also use the Pulse button with this function for pulse-chopping.
To use your food processor, make sure that the bowl is assembled properly and the blade or slicing/shredding disc and the cover are locked into place.
When you use the control panel, the LED will light next to each button you press.
Press the On button. For continuous operation, press the Food Processor button. Motor will start if you have followed assembly instructions.
To turn motor off, press the Food Processor button again or the Off button.
For on/off operation, called pulse-chopping or pulsing, press the On button, press the Pulse button, and then press and release the
Food Processor button the desired number of times. Motor runs as long as you hold the Food Processor button down. The motor stops when you release control switch. Try it a few times.
You control the duration and frequency of pulses by the length of time you hold the Food Processor button down and the rate at which you press it. Pulses should be short bursts. Allow enough time between pulses to let food in work bowl fall to bottom.
Always use the Food Processor button for pulse/chopping. Never turn cover back and forth to start and stop processor.

Cuisinart dlc-7 superpro food processor won't run.


The DLC-7 SuperPro is awesome -- very powerfull. Be aware they are 1.5 horsepower; the blade can take your hand completely off in a blink of an eye. Because of the potential danger, SAFEGUARDS are in place such that everything must be aligned and in correct position or it WILL NOT POWER-UP. So, yes, is very likely the safety switch.

Simple test: Use just the BASE, (no work bucket, no top, no blades), such that if it starts, only the spindle will turn. There is a little black button on the base, just back of the spindle. Use a chop-stick to depress it. Plug-in, press the button w/chop-stik, press the PULSE button. It should power up.

Presuming it powered up okay, the "problem" is probably in how the unit is assembled; such that the button is depressed properly.
1. The work bowl must be all the way down on the base, and the alignment column in the back, work bowl base skirt turned to the "Hard Stop". It will feel very solid when docked properly.
2. The top inserts and rotates into and snaps into position while pressing the plunger into the button.

It all sounds too easy, but if something is just a little off, the plunger doesn't plunge ind the power doesn't go on.

These are FABULOUS machines -- spend the time into getting it working. The near- equivalent if something this robust and powerful in today's products will cost nearly a THOUSAND dollars - seriously.

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.
