Answer to: Why does my processor start running before I put the lid on?If your device runs without all the components in place, the safety feature is most likely damaged. The safety switch only allows the processor to work when all of the components are in place. The safety feature works by a spring mechanism in the work bowl which activates an electrical switch in the processor's housing. You will need to either replace or fix the safety switch. See the Cuisinart DFP-14BCN troubleshooting page for further information on the safety switch.
Answer to: Why are my food processor’s blades not spinning?Check to see if the drive shaft spins easily by hand. If it does, your food processor’s capacitor may be faulty and needs to be replaced. If the drive shaft does not spin easily by hand, and the motor is spinning and humming, your food processor’s motor may be damaged. If this is the case, refer to the Cuisinart DFP-14BCN troubleshooting page for more information.
