Question about Oster 3212SNB Food Processor

1 Answer

My Oster 3212 food processor will not turn on.

Please advise. It has been very used rarely and always had very light use. After turning the food container and locking it in place I press either of the start buttons but nothing happens. No sound, no grinding sound from the motor. Nothing. Please advise. Thanks.

You have to make sure that both the bowl and the cover are locked into place. Sometimes if you wiggle it a bit, it will go into the right spot. Make sure that the outlet you are using works.

SOURCE: I need a replacement bowl for the Oster 3212 Food Processor

I contacted the manufacturer and bought the bowl. This is frustrating as I had contacted their authorized service center and was told the bowl was unavailable.

The container may have been incorrectly installed in the base or installed but not locked in position. Also, the speed switch may have picked a bad time to fail.

I can't get the food bowl off the processing unit. i have removed the cover as the manual says. I have left the blade in as the manual says. The picture looks as thought you should just lift it...


On page 8 of the manual that I will give you the link to: leave the cover in place on the container. Use the cover to help remove the container. Rotate the cover clockwise 180 degrees until the two tabs on the cover meet the two container tabs. Continue to turn the cover, but do not press down as you turn, using your thumb against the tabs until the container is released. Empty the remaining food from the container.

Oster is a good brand. Unplug it and try to turn thhe motor by han using an attachment. Or, tap the unit with a run button depredded. Here is why. Sometimes new brushes on a motor have a coating on the conrtact surface. It is vry thin and it is not permitting a good electrical contact. If you can't turn the motor, slap it a couple of times with it on. Once it starts, let it run for 2 or3 minutes and you troubles are over once the brushesseat and clean up. Good luck and remember to unplug when hands are on or near the attachments.

When i try using it, nothing happens. i cannot


Remove the work bowl, blades, etc from off the base.
Plug the processor in and press the ON pedal down.
Use a pen to press in the rubber button on top of the base - you should hear a sound.
Now reassemble the bowl - lock the bowl in so that the handle faces front; insert blade of choice; place the tab under the feed tube of lid slightly left of center of the work bowl handle and slide the lid counter-clockwise until it clicks into place; insert pusher and make sure it locks into place.
You should be good to go again.

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.

Can't figure out how to turn on Regal LaMachine I food processor


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!

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!
