Food processor is not working

I got it as a gift but did not used it for over a year. Now when I want to use it, it does not work. Is there anything that I can look at, repair it myself, find out why it does not work?

Thanks

It would help if we knew the brand and model number. Also any symptoms would help identify the problem.

yes, sorry about it lol. It is Black & Decker PowerPro, 400 Watts, Model FP1510. No symptoms, it just does not work at all. The power light does not light up so it could be that power is not getting where it suppose to go???

Thanks

If the device was brand new it would have been tested ex factory and it's probably safe to assume it was working when boxed. Lets assume the plug fuse is ok and that the wall socket is also giving power, we move on to the machine. When you fit the mixer bowl to the device the bowl has a lug on the bottom that activates a micro-switch in the body of the machine. You should be able to hear/feel a click when you turn the bowl to activate the switch - perhaps thats the problem area.

I could not find a teardown of this. First thing I would do is check the wall plug. Second, I would remove the bottom and make sure that the power is getting to the engine. It could be a loose power connection since you get nothing. I voltmeter would help with this repair.

I had the exact same problem on the brand new B&D 12 cup processor.. I resolved it by placing a popsicle stick at the small arrow at the handle, turned it on and applied pressure on the popsicle stick to activate the little round piece that must be pushed down in order for it to be activated. Had to apply pressure with one hand while machine was activated which was a hassle but it finally worked! This is a defect in the unit obviously. But that little round metal piece has to be depressed and that’s the only solution that would work for me.

Look at the top of the handle at the spot where the lid locks to it. My handle is in two pieces the top black piece that attaches to a clear section. Immediately below the top of the handle about half an inch down there is a very small Gap where the lid locks to the top of the handle. I had to use a popsicle stick to shove into that Gap that allows that small piece interior piece that's below the top edge of the handle to be depressed and for the motor to activate. You must continue to apply pressure to the popsicle stick or use something thin and sturdy like a thin key, to keep the motor running.
