Magimix 4200 xl won't turn on

The bowls and lid locked into place but it's clear to me that the bit that is supposed to push down into the base to lock and secure doesn't seem to work. I can push the button on the base without the bowls on and it spins but when the bowl and lids are attached it seems it doesn't get pushed down enough to lock. I've bought a replacement main bowl as I thought it might be that but it still doesn't turn on. It has worked in the past but has recently stopped working. I don't have a receipt and i have no idea what else to do other than buy a new one. I've heard that people have their magi mix's for year so I'm disappointed to have these issues after only 2 years.

Check that the bit on the lid that activates the switch pushing mechanism in the bowl is working properly.

SOURCE: The bowl will not unlock

with that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.

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.

I have used my magimix only three times since purchasing it in May. Today it will not work? I think there is something wrong with the motor, can this be?


Almost certainly the bowl and lid at not locked in the correct place. There is a button in the base and a rod in the handle that is pressed by a wedge on the lid. That presses the safety interlock button down into the base section. I have fallen foul of this and I am a professional chef :>)

Tip

The cusinart pro classic food processor is not working ?


Try this procedure:-- 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 work bowl
5.Place the lid on the work bowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the work bowl 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.
This will help.Good luck.

Hi my magimix 320xl won’t turn on the Handel clicks in ok so I’m not sure what the problem is it’s only been used a couple of times hope you can help me thank you Christine


Magimix is the best name in foods processors. They are very reliable with a direct drive motor. As I am sure you know that have a safety interlock, and this may be what is giving you the problem. The bowl has to be locked in place with the handle over the interlock button in the base. This is with the handle dead centre of the front of the machine. It won't work if you decide the handle would be better off at the side of the machine. Then the lid has to be locked in place with the lug in the slot in the top of the bowl. Only then will the machine operate.

If all that checks out, then you will need a service centre.

How do I change the Nylon Driveshaft on my Magimix 4200?


Yes you can, you can "cut" it off with a soldering iron by melting a slot down one side. When banging a new one on you need to remove the base and support the bottom of the shaft with something solid underneath it. The whole motor assembly will be sitting on this as you bang the new sleeve on with a soft mallet. If you don't there is a danger you will wreck the motor and you cannot afford to replace that bit.

New magimix won't start


It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

I have a cuisinart pro classic food processor, and even though bowl and top are locked in place, it will not start.


On the processor look at the bowl and lid and see where they are supposed to engage the motor. If this is broken then that is the problem, find something to push on where the part of the the bowl and lid assembly would push, if it comes on then you have figured out the problem.

Euro-Pro EP91 Quad-Blade 6 Won't Start


My wife was given this unit from an elderly gentleman that was done trying to make it work.
I just fixed the same problem as above. Note - I do not have a manual for this unit.
True above about the bowl cover being locked in position but found the key to make it work is also the white lid to the left of the bowl cover. I was locking and unlocking this white lid with no results. Then I removed the bowl cover and found the white lid cover was loose and easily removed this white lid to inspect inside ( why this cover removes I have no clue).
Anyway I was able to snap the white cover firmly on and turn counter clockwise to lock in place ( six o’clock position), then after putting the bowl cover back on and snapping in place it works.
Note - I do not need to turn the white lid cover to install or remove the clear bowl cover, this could be because it looks like one of the clear tabs might be broken on the locking area of the clear bowl cover. If you have two tabs the same shape on the bowl cover you may need twist the white lid clockwise to install and remove the bowl cover and counter clockwise to lock in place so the unit works, but now that my white lid is snapped firmly in place it hardly moves with the force of both hands trying to turn it.
Hope this helps someone.
Good Luck !
