Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

Cuisinart DLC-85 Pro Custom 11 Cups Food Processor. Checked motor as recommended, works fine. Put together as instructed, turned on and when I press the pulse button it turns it off. Help will be appreciated. Bought new at Cosco and didn't save the sales receipt. What do I do now?

    I lost the instruction manual. Besides the grater blade, what over parts do I use to grate vegatables?

  • Anonymous Apr 30, 2009

    Whenever I use Pulse for about 10 - 20 cycles or run the machine for about 1 minute it will turn itself off. I thought this was a built in function to protect the motor however i couldn't find anything in the user manual.

Whoops, when putting together I failed to insert the feeder cup.  When I did that it worked!  I should have more carefully followed the assembly instructions.  Thanks for your help.  What a great web site

If you already have a lot of attachments for this model, I would purchase a used motor unit. I got a complete setup at a yard sale minus the work bowl cover for $3 as a spare, and often see them at thrift stores priced quite inexpensively. You could also check ebay. Motor units routinely go for less than $25 including shipping. I'm pretty sure most dcl-8 series motors will work with you bowl and attachments. I like the quality of the older units better than the newer ones. And if you watch ebay closely, you can pick up a lot of pieces really cheaply. Good Luck,

Can't get cuisenart pro 11 to start


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.

You should now be good to go.

Machine on but not working


The video is generic, and may actually show a different model with completely different assembly instructions. For the DLC-8S and DFP-11 series, you want work bowl handle facing the front of the processor, feed tube on lid facing back of the processor, and sliding lock switch facing the front of the machine. For the DLC-2011, you want work bowl handle facing front, lid lined up with work bowl handle, and metal element hanging from pusher facing front.

To make sure the motor is working first, remove the work bowl, blade, etc. completely from the base of the food processor. Plug the base in and turn the food processor on. Then use a pen to press in the dark gray or black button on top of the processor - if it makes a sound, your motor is good. If it doesn't, call Cuisinart and get your processor repaired.

Good luck!

None of the buttons work on my Power Prep Pulse 11-CUP


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the hollow feed tube facing the back of the processor.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the sliding lock switch facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If your food processor still does not turn on, call Cuisinart and see if you are eligible for an in-warranty repair - it has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!

Cuisinart DLC- 8M


Those older Cuisinart food processors have motors that generally last forever. But a replacement bowl can cost $118.00 or more. The newer processors like the DLC-8S do have a 3-year general warranty and a 5-year motor warranty. The new DLC-2011, 2007, 2014 series etc. have 10-year motor warranties. I like the collect the oldies, but the new ones have few problems even though they are made in China. If an old processor's plastic breaks, you have to buy a completely new bowl set - if a new processor's plastic breaks, then you can buy a single component piece to solve the problem. Hope this helps.

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.
