Post 140: Fixing my precious 110 small appliance Cuisinart for 180Sh (about $45.00) and Almond Cheese

This machine is $1,200. However, the original French made CPF Cuisinart 1970  is identical in operation lacking one feature: My machine does not have an on off button and a pulser. My machine starts when the top is in a locked position. To achieve  a pulsing action, just need to move the top back and forth

All of a sudden my trusty food processor/robot coupe stopped working. ” Do I throw it away?”
