Question about Cuisinart Food Processors

Cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.

The motor shaft cover on our DLC-8 Plus food processer cracked and we can't find a replacement. Cuisinart says they no longer carry it. Any suggestions? Same story. DLC-8 food processor works great, we have 3 sets of bowls & blades (we keep kosher). Plastic sheath cracked, can't find one anywhere, don't even know where to find an old machine with a functional shaft. BTW, Small Appliance.com sent us 3 wrong shafts (and wouldn't take a return even though it was their fault), Cuisinart sent us the shaft sheath for the DLC-8S, which is not the same. They are at least refunding the cost and postage.
Very sad situation. What happened to not throwing things out, but repairing and not putting more into the landfill?

I had the same problem: Cuisinart sent a "replacement" sheath for my DLC-8E which turned out to be the wrong one. When I replaced mine,which was cracked, none of my blades would fit over the new sheath! I "solved" the problem by purchasing a new DLC-8E motor base on Ebay for only $9.99!

Check the thrift shops,flea markets and yard sales. I found a work bowl for $3.50 at Habitat for Humanity store...looks like new.

Boy, now that I know....if I see a cheapy at yard sale etc I will pick up a spare! I love my DLC 8 Plus.

Have you tried finding it on Ebay? I got lots of replacement parts there.

How do you get the motor shaft cover off? I need to replace the old one.


The shaft is spinning inside the sleeve. So is should not be hard to remove. With a DLC-7SP, I grabbed the spindle with some pliers, channel locks might do well and put a handle of a screwdriver between the pliers and the top deck and pried. Second attempt and it pulled up easily. Place the screwdriver beside one of the top deck screw covers to transfer force directly to the motor. Otherwise top deck would probably break.

Clean the old shaft to remove any contamination.

New one can be driven on with a hammer and block of wood.

You can get the Motor Shaft Covers for most if not all Cuisinart models from their customer service. They are not shown on the web under parts, but if you call them, they can help you get the right part. Just have your model # ready. For many, the part is $3 plus shipping and handling.

I have a DC 8 (DLC 8) Cuisinart Food Processor, 15


Your Cuisinart should be warrantied for a little longer (25 minus 15 years) so call the factory to authorize a return or see if you can drop it off at a local retail outlet to save you shipping costs (CA law requires them to accept it for service)..

New ones are only warrantied for 3 years and they cost about $200 on up.

I think your best investment is to get it fixed.

The Motor Shaft Cover parts are not shown on the Cuisinart website under parts, but they are available if you call Customer Service. These parts are quite inexpensive (often $3 + s&h). Have your model number ready, and they can get the right one out to you.

In my area, Hamilton, ON., there is a small appliance repair shop called "Hacks". They service all small appliances including my Cuisinart DLC 8 Plus. . Perhaps there is one in your area you could call.
