    I have the same problem. I just ordered the part yesterday. My food processor DLC7Pro is 26 years old, and I have replaced the sheath at least twice. The trick is to get the old one off. When my part arrives, I'll email you back and let you know how I did it. Sorry that I can't remember off the top of my head, but it can be done!

    The same thing happened to my CFP-9A motor shaft cover this weekend after 31 years of hard use. I've ordered the part, and was hoping it would come with instructions. Sounds as thought it won't.


    Would be grateful for any insights from your experience.

I have a DLC 7 pro circa 1982 - just replaced the sheath. First - remove old sheath - I found that using a plumbers pipe cutter to cut old sheath off in sections then pulling each section off with pliers works great. Make sure ALL the plastic comes off the metal shaft - as well as the brass ring portion of the sheath.

Next use a sharpie marker to mark the the "flat" side of the shealth = you must look inside the sheath, find the 2 "nubs" that form a "flat" side. These nubs must line up perfectly with the flat side of the shaft - mark the base of the shaft as well so you can more easily line up the flat of the sheath with the flat side of the shaft (and no, the flat outer sides of the the sheath do not match up with the flat inside section of the sheath - that would make life too easy!)

Press the new sheath on with your hand as far as it goes - should go down to about 1 inch from the base.

Now you need a hammer, piece of 2 x4 wood and brute strenght! (keep in mind that once you hammer it - even once - it will NOT come off) Put the 2" side of the wood against the top of the sheath - Use a LOT of force to hammer the sheath all the way down. will probably take 3 - 5 good strikes. It will take much more force than you think you should need to use. Make sure the base of shaft is as far down as possible - if it rubs against the workbowl while spinning it will fuse to the bowl! Good luck! -

It usually goes something like this, with minor variations depending on model number:
1. Remove the work bowl completely from the base
2. Plug the food processor in and turn it on
3. Use a pen to depress the dark grey/black button on the base – if it spins, proceed
4. Put the work bowl on the base with the handle facing the front of the food processor – slide the work bowl until it locks - the white tabs show in the openings on the bottom of either side of the workbowl
5. Place the lid on the workbowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the workbowl handle – slide the lid counterclockwise until it won’t slide any more
6. Place the pusher sleeve in the feeder tube of the lid with the lock facing the front of the food processor (may vary depending on model)
7. Slide the lock to the right into the locked position
The food processor should now work

Motor base cover for dlc 7 super pro


Try buying a new motor base on eBay. It's actually quite cheap. If you are daunted by the shipping cost of this monster, you can always ask the seller to sell you just the brown bottom cover. Under each foot is a screw which attaches the molded base it to the rest of the assembly. It's a lot cheaper to just have that part sent to you. This works as long as you are handy in making the switch of the base.

I don't have an instruction manual (wasn't in the box) and I don't know how to use the slicing/shredding blades or the additional smaller bowls.


A manual for the FP-14C series which the Cuisinart site indicates is applicable to your specific model is available online:

http://www.cuisinart.ca/pdf/ibs/en/FP-14DCC_en.pdf

See page 8 for assembly instructions. Beginning on page 20 is an included recipe section.

I need to replace the plastic parts again. Last time it cost $66.


The mechanical parts will ALWAYS outlast the plastic parts. If you call Cuisinart, they will give you the price for the replacement parts that you need. If you find the price unacceptable, you can take your chances buying the parts cheaply off of eBay, but beware - the seller may be selling parts that have the exact same damage that yours has.
