Magimix not working ?

Magimix food processors don`t usually just stop ! ... here are some quick tests 

Pencil Test  

You can test your Magimix Motor Base, without any bowls or attachments follow these instructions 

Check the fuse is in the plug and there are no cuts or damage to the Lead. 

Take off all bowls attachments and blades.  

Plug in the machine and turn on at the wall, push the ON /AUTO button.

From the ON button go up and across the top and you will see a round hole, keeping hands away from the Spindle, push a pencil in the little hole and the Machine should start.

When the Bowls and lids are put together - off the machine, the bowl rod should come out of the bottom of the handle (this is the same as sticking a pencil in the hole) if the rod does not come out, the lid or bowl maybe broken, (or in XL models you have not put the pusher in the XL lid).

If your motor is just Humming and not going round, it could be simply the capacitor. You will need a competent person to change. A start capacitor alters the Speed automatically, if the machine is stored in damp conditions or overfilled this can happen. When switched off, try turning the spindle by hand does the spindle move freely?

Spindle Damaged 

Does the motor work but the blade not turn? - the plastic spindle could be damaged, check the spindle, it should have two flat sides, if they are rounded off, these are made in plastic - to avoid damage to the motor, you will need a blade kit as the inside of the blade will be damaged.
