Food Processors - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I plug my cuisinart and it will not start. It
Put the work bowl, lid, and pusher on one piece at a time - handle of work bowl faces the front of the food processor, hollow feed tube faces the back, and the sliding lock switch on pusher sleeve faces the front. Should turn on.
If it doesn't, test the motor - remove the work bowl and other parts completely. Plug the base in and turn it on, and use a pen to push in the dark grey or black button on top of the base - if it spins, the motor is still good - you may just need a replacement part. If it doesn't make a sound, it needs to be sent in to Cuisinart for repair.

My magic bullet won't press down. It stays stuck
Had the same problem - it wouldn't press down. The little white plastic things inside of the base that go up and down when the cup is pushed down, were stuck. I think that something leaked into them so they wouldn't slide easily. I wiped out the inside of the base with a damp cloth and then I put a drop or two of WD40 at the top of the white plastic pieces and rubbed it up and down the length of all 3 of the white plastic pieces (this being done with the base lying on its side so the WD40 doesn't drip down into the mechanism). Then, with base upright, I used a screwdriver to try to manually push the white plastic pieces down. It worked. Of course before doing any of this - be sure the thing is unplugged (duh!).

Blender bottom stuck
I tried the vinegar thing but it didn't quite work. We blended some smoothies with yogurt and it leaked through the bottom. No big deal, we tightened it up. We didn't clean it immediately. By the time we went to clean it, it was stuck. The vinegar didn't work, tried baking soda with vinegar, didn't work. Finally we ran the bottom underneath hot water for about 5-10 minutes. Finally after one strong turn the bottom came off. We have an oyster, the base can be used as well to take the bottom off but it turns counter-clockwise.
