    how do you get the lid offthe bowl.

  • Anonymous Apr 24, 2009

    I have the identical problem. Tried cooling it in fridge, then freezer .... leaving it under running hot water . .. and using various tools.

    It has been sitting in the fridge for three days with its contents of pureed tomatoes that I can't get out.

    What has Cuisinart done?

    I used an earlier model for seven years with no problems until the circular blade broke.

    Surely there's some solution -- other than spending $18 on replacing part of a product I've only used for a month?

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

The cusinart pro classic food processor is not working ?


Try this procedure:-- 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 work bowl
5.Place the lid on the work bowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the work bowl 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.
This will help.Good luck.

New magimix won't start


It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

I can't figure out how to use it.. I just want to make a smoothie!


You can get a manual at WWW. euro-pro.com.

In order to use the blender the food processor bowl and lid must be LOCKED in place. Turn the lid on processor until it's locked. Then you are ready to use the blender. Select desired speed or pulse.

In order to use the processor, remove the blender and place the gray lid in its place. It should be locked. The lid keeps the blender shaft from spinning and allows the shaft on the processor to turn.

To remove the processor bowl, gently lift up on the lid to unlock it and then turn it away from processor. Bowl lifts off. That's it! Enjoy!

Hope I have been of some help to you.

I Cuisanart mini prep and removed the bowl, lid,


Make sure the tab on the lid is making contact with the "tower" in the back and that the work bowl is locked properly into place so that the plastic tabs show on each side toward the bottom of the work bowl.

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!

The bowl will not unlock


with that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.
