My twenty five year old 14 cup food processor just stopped

Customer Question

My twenty five year old 14 cup food processor just stopped working. No hum, no clicking, just silence. Was working fine before hand.

  • I suspect there is a thermal fuse in line with the motor that has opened. Typically, these are not replaceable but I am happy to check.
  • May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Nothing is showing as available beyond the accessories. There are no service parts listed. However, oftentimes there are part numbers on the fuses. Are you able to disassemble the unit to access the motor area and do you have a meter to test electrical with?
