I have a maestro pro sunbeam food processor the lid of the bowl has some broken parts which hold it to the bowl. I would like to know if I can get a replacement lid, as the lid makes the food processor work. The piece that is broken is stopping the lid from fitting tightly.

Ours is hard to remove, too. I just hold the base with both hands, then
put my left thumb and right index fingers on the parts of the bowl where
it attaches to the base. Then push it, if I remember correctly,
clockwise. This works far better than gripping the entire bowl.
I am assuming you have a DLC-8S Pro Custom 11, and not another Cuisinart food processor.
Remove the work bowl and all other parts completely from base.
Plug the base in, and turn it on.
Use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base.
If you hear a spinning or other noise, the motor is still good.
Now that you have verified that the motor is good:
Put each work bowl piece on one at a time - if you don't out it on one at a time, it will not lock in properly.
Put work bowl on with work bowl handle facing front, make sure bowl locks.
Put lid on with hollow feed tube facing the back of the food processor.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with sliding lock switch facing the front of the food processor.
Removing a Cuisinart Food Processor Work Bowl 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! -Tha Mp3 Doctor
