How to get bowl off the base

How do you get the bowl off the base of the old, classic Cuisinart DLC-017? I can't find a release catch, and when I tried to twist the bowl on the base, it won't move.

There is no switch or relase - you just have to grip the sides and twist them off the base locks - requires quite a bit of force - not the easiest thing to remove.

Is the Cuisinart DLC 7 Super Pro Manual available to download?


Manuals can be found here:
Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

You'll have to look around at the options and pick one that looks like the one you have.

If you have an older one, the handle for the bowl generally goes in front, and check the base to see if the button that gets pushed down when the top is in locked position is in the front or the back... and try to match that. The DLC-10s has it in the front (7 cup machine), but many of the larger machines have it in the back. The feed tube matches up with the button when you put the lid on. If you put the lid on with the feed tube 180 degrees off, you can break the lid/bowl getting them apart again.

Getting this right is the most important thing... otherwise they just kind of work. The link for the 7-cup Pro Classic Food Processor (DLC-10s) has really good technique information with color photos. It's worth grabbing regardless of the machine you have.

Other manuals have other recipes... so you might want to download more than one manual.

Work bowl stuck.


Hello. It will release. Just use a wooden spoon wrapped in a towel to gently tap on the handle until it moves and releases. J.

I have a cuisinart pro classic food processor, and even though bowl and top are locked in place, it will not start.


On the processor look at the bowl and lid and see where they are supposed to engage the motor. If this is broken then that is the problem, find something to push on where the part of the the bowl and lid assembly would push, if it comes on then you have figured out the problem.

I cannot remove the top from the base


I don't know what brand food processor this is. However, are you saying that the bowl will not rotate to release? It's normally just a matter of twisting the bowl (probably anti clockwise when viewed from the top) in order to release it.

It will not start no matter how well everything is in place and locked.


I had the same problem until I called Cuisinart. The handle of the bowl needs to face you. Have you tried that as well?

I put all parts on just do a simple and it won't turn on.


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the hollow feed tube facing the back of the processor.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the sliding lock switch facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

Good luck!

Cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.


I had the same problem: Cuisinart sent a "replacement" sheath for my DLC-8E which turned out to be the wrong one. When I replaced mine,which was cracked, none of my blades would fit over the new sheath! I "solved" the problem by purchasing a new DLC-8E motor base on Ebay for only $9.99!

WE need the pusher/sleeve assembly. The motor is


I don't recognize model #PLE-8E, but if you have a DLC-8E, while you can't get the original parts from Cuisinart, you can get a whole bowl/pusher/lid that will operate your old base. I also see a few auctions for the original DLC-8 series parts, but there is some asterisk by each of them - they will work, but they have a chip somewhere, etc. But, I would keep your eye on eBay - I picked up many a good Cuisinart item at a bargain price.

I have a very old cuisinart food processor


Unfortunately the CHM models no longer have replacement parts. If the workbowl parts says something like DLC-7 or DLC-10, then you can call Cuisinart and get replacement parts. CHM models would require finding somthing on eBay.
