Hey, I know this is an old thread but just had the same problem and solved it. With the blender container upside down, place the gasket on the jar hole, put the blade through the hole on top of the gasket, then screw the plastic base on top of that.
The way I had done it before was to pop the blade into the bottom of the plastic base first then screw it onto the gasket and jar but it goes on the gasket, not under the bottom of the base. Hope that helps anyone else in the future.
Also just read the manual instructions like I didn't, clear as day right there but I never bothered to read them ha
First, do a motor test by removing the work bowl completely and using a pen to press in the grey button on top of the base (with the food processor plugged in and turned on of course), toward the back. If the processor spins, the motor is still good. At that point, I would inspect the work bowl pieces, lid, pusher assembly, etc for cracks/damage. If all appears well, insert ALL the pieces back into place and try again. For the DFP-14, remember: handle faces front, feed tube faces back, and metal element on back of pusher faces back of processor. Connect the pieces separately - if you try to put the work bowl on with the lid and pusher already attached, it will not always lock properly. If even one piece is out of place, the processor will not spin. If it no longer spins, the motor has a problem. Good luck! -Tha Mp3 Doctor
(0) unplug unit (1) Remove the bottom 4 screws, cover plate and motor shield ( 2) unhook the white motor wire from its binding clip ( 3) locate the plastic sleeve with the fuseable link (4) cut the sleeve and test for continuity between points on either side of link with ohmmeter (5) if no continuity, clip out fuseable link and and solder the white wire back together (6) cover with tape (7) rebind to other wires (8) replace bottom and check. This worked for me.
I had this same problem. It was solved but let me tell you it was a nightmare and we were almost sure the blender would be destroyed at least 3 times during the ordeal.
Here's a hint: the thread is on opposite to a normal screw thread so that it gets tighter as the blender spins.
Steps: 1. Take the base off the blender and pop out the motor. 2. Turn over the motor and remove the round rubber part at the bottom. You will see a flathead screw. This is where you grip the shaft that the cursed brass coupler thread is attached to. 3. Find someone else to help and also a large strong flathead screwdriver. 4. With a friend holding a screwdriver in place at the bottom, grip the top brass thread with pliers (or better yet a pipe wrench) and twist it the opposite way you normally would. 5. Become extremely frustrated by the fact that the screw thread is made of cheap metal and strips instantly and that the brass thread is also cheaply made and rips right through your pliers / wrench. 6. Find a hack saw and a hammer. 7. Cut the brass thread off with the hack saw. Hammer the stubborn remaining pieces of it off with a screwdriver. Be prepared to cut off half of the shaft. 8. Eventually you should have hammered / sawed the brass thread off. If the shaft and motor are still intact, you can now screw the new coupler on (remember - its backwards). We had only about half of the shaft thread left and it still worked ok. Make sure to do this after you put the motor back in place with the shaft poking through the top of the case. Don't worry too much about how tight it is. As I mentioned its on backwards to tighten the coupler during normal use. 9. Replace the casing and screws, don't forget that rubber thing at the bottom. 10. Curse Cuisinart and make a drink, you deserve it.
The gasket goes between the cutting assembly and the glass. So you slip it on over the top of the blades and then put the glass jar over top of that. Screw the bottom cap on to tighten everything together.
