Cuisinat DLC 8 Plus Bowl won't unlock

I just bought a pre-owned Cuisinart DLC 8 Plus food processor. I assembled the whole thing with the slicing blade and it works great. The only thing is I can't get bowl to unlock. Is there a trick to this? I don't want to force it because I'm afraid of breaking something.

You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

My food processor light is on but i need to press and hold the black button please help


Use a ball-point pen to depress the button - your finger simply will not do.

This is only to test the motor.

Once it makes the proper sound, you are ready to assemble the workbowl - once properly assembled, the workbowl, lid, and pusher itself will push the button for you. On the DLC-2011, the proper assembly is for the work bowl handle to be locked toward the front of the processor. If you are still having trouble or you have a model other than the DLC-2011, call Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190 and they will help you with the assembly.

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.

Lid stuck on bowl of my Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus.


Generally they twist off, but on the DLC-2, if the lid won't come off, a replacement bowl and lid is around $18.00

Often it is difficult to unlock the bowl on the cuisinart food processor


Have you tried removing the lid first? Mine has an interlock where I have to remote the lid before I can unlock the bowl from the machine. Good luck!

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.

I just had the same problem! I gently tapped the the bottom of the handle with a hammer in a clockwise direction. It finally unlocked and is now working fine. Good luck!
