Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

Stops working due to short

I'm posting a problem that I fixed on my DLC 7 PRO. One day it "sparked" near the bottom and threw the circuit breaker and stopped working. I opened it up by turning it over and removing the 4 screws that hold the base on (three are under rubber feet pads - pry these off carefully to get to them.) After inspecting all the wiring and components I located the problem - two wires attached to the circuit board were too close together and had shorted out - perhaps some dust or something conductive like a piece of foil and gotten into the unit. The fix was moving all the wires in that area apart and then filling the space between them with hot glue from my hot glue gun. I also re-attached the rubber feet pads using hot glue.

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.

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.

Need circuit board for DLC 8-PLUS


Rather than replace the circuit board, you might consider going on Ebay and just buy a used replacement base. I got one a few months ago on Ebay at a fraction of the cost of buying a new food processor. Cuisinart parts are popular on Ebay.

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.

My food processor plastic container has never slipped on and off with ease i have to smash it into place and the double smash the handle to remove it from the base. I would like to get a new upper...


You can get a completely new work bowl set (not the original parts) from Cuisinart for around $118.00. You could also buy one from a shady eBay seller and see if the oldie works. I am a collector of these myself, but in reality, it is probably cheaper to get a new Cuisinart food processor - they are nearly as good as the old ones.

Brand NEw DLC-8 not working.


If a part of the work bowl is damaged, it will not properly trigger the motor. Replace the workbowl (original DLC-8 parts not available, but an expensive replacement workbowl is available).
