If you feel dough being to wet, just add more flour a table spoon at the time. The dough shouldn't be too sticky. When making dough you can't always be followed exactly what the recipe says. Unless you're in a controlled environment like a baker has. Humidity and temperature play a big role. If it's to wet add more flour, to dry add a bit more water. but adjust only with tablespoon amounts.
If you are making it do alot of work it may be slowing down enough to heat up. This will trip a thermal cutoff. Fortunately that one resets and you don't have to have an expensive repair. But now it may have overheated a few times and will start to burn off the varnish that insulates one winding from another. It will eventually burn out if you work it too hard. Can you get a more powerful one? Do you do this often?
Hi there, I just had the same problem and then found an on-line manual that says this:
An automatic, temperature- controlled circuit breaker in the motor ensures complete protection against motor burnout. If the processor runs for an exceptionally long time when chopping, mixing or kneading a thick or heavy mixture in successive batches, the motor may overheat. If this happens, the processor will stop. Turn it off and wait for the motor to cool off before proceeding. It will usually cool off within 10 minutes. In extreme cases, it could take an hour.
You need to replace the spindle i'm afraid which gets worn after a time. There a UK company that sells replacements and tells you how to replace it. Not a big job though a bit tricky. magimixspares.com
Having contacted the Moulinex main office in Canada, I was informed that they do not ship parts to the US. However, they directed to the US sales office - contact "customer Service - Abtec Parts" <firstname.lastname@example.org> who carry replacement parts for a large number of applicances. Hope this information helps someone in need. Thank you.
On the DLC 7 Pro cuisinart the blade was removed by removing the plastic bottom. Make sure the unit is unplugged. Remove the four rubber pads on the bottom. This was the hardest part because the pads are glued so securely that the inner rubber surface tears as it's removed. I used two flat blade screwdrivers and worked carefully, back and forth. Using a #2 philips, remove the four screws. Place the unit on its side and while inserting a screwdriver between a spoke and the motor frame gently turn the blade counter clockwise. Be careful not to put pressure against the cooling fins. Very little pressure was needed and the blade came right out. I might have been able to hold the shaft from turning without removing the bottom, by going through the vent slots in the bottom, but I was concerned with cracking the plastic. To replace the rubber pads I matched the design of the torn rubber pad with the shape (design) of the surface glued rubber and used thin two-sided tape.
