The plastic clip on the Work Bowl Cover with a feed tube fell off

I don't have any idea how it came off or goes back together. I need a photo or diagram of the a work bowl cover with a large feed tube. I have had this cuisinart for 23 years. It works great. It's a DLC8 Plus.

Can you tell me you to put the plastic clip back on properly?

I just encountered the same problem and cannot figure out how to get the clip back on. Did you ever solve this problem? If so, I would love to know how.

To put the activator clip back in go to the website, below, and download the diagrams of replacement bowl covers. Scroll down and there is a picture of the back of the cover with the clip in place. Once you have it going in the right direction, it snaps right in. Hope this helps. I think I'm going to print the photos for the next time the little troublemaker falls out. Cheers. Cathy

Is the Cuisinart DLC 7 Super Pro Manual available to download?


Manuals can be found here:
Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

You'll have to look around at the options and pick one that looks like the one you have.

If you have an older one, the handle for the bowl generally goes in front, and check the base to see if the button that gets pushed down when the top is in locked position is in the front or the back... and try to match that. The DLC-10s has it in the front (7 cup machine), but many of the larger machines have it in the back. The feed tube matches up with the button when you put the lid on. If you put the lid on with the feed tube 180 degrees off, you can break the lid/bowl getting them apart again.

Getting this right is the most important thing... otherwise they just kind of work. The link for the 7-cup Pro Classic Food Processor (DLC-10s) has really good technique information with color photos. It's worth grabbing regardless of the machine you have.

Other manuals have other recipes... so you might want to download more than one manual.

How does the slide lock on the Cuisinard Custom 11 Food Process go back on?


The main important thing if you have an older style machine is to make sure when putting it together that the feed tube from the top aligns with the part of the bowl with the spring, so the button on the base gets depressed correctly. For some, the spring mechanism is on the front with the handle, for some it is opposite the handle... check the base for the tiny button to double check.

If you put the top on backwards it won't work (at least not correctly) -- but what's worse is that you are likely to break the locking mechanism when trying to get it apart... either on the lid, or the bowl, or both. It can be an expensive mistake.

Luckily, bowls and lids are available from Cuisinart... and many times the same bowl/lid was used for different machine numbers (the various models are about the base, not the bowls/lids/blades/etc.)

Won't start


Make sure the work bowl handle is locked in place so that it is facing the front of the processor (same side as the on and off switches).

Make sure the feed tube of the lid is facing toward the back of the processor and that the plastic or metal rod of the pusher sleeve is facing the back of the processor.

Note: this assembly only applies to the Cuisinart DFP-14 series - every Cuisinart has a slightly different assembly for it to turn on.

I have all pieces locked into place and it will not work! I have the prep 11 plus


First thing to do is check your base to make sure it's not something wrong there. If you take everything off the base and look on top, either in the 6 or 12 o' clock position there will be a black button set into the base slightly. You want to find a ball point pen, and with the base plugged in, press and hold that button while turning on the unit.

If that works, you want to go through each piece one at a time. First w/ the work bowl, and notice there is a plastic rod w/ a spring at the bottom set into on side of the work bowl. Make sure that is lined up over the black button. Then in the cover, usually on the back of the feed tube, there is a lever within the clear plastic, that should line up over the rod in the work bowl. Finally, you must add the pusher/sleeve portion at the very last, or else it all won't engage right and it won't work. Just make sure the tabs on the large pusher are locked into the cover last, and it all engages so that the spring in the work bowl is depressed. The processor won't work until all the pieces are in the exact place and put on one at a time (I can't stress that enough because these processors are very exact when it comes to that, some kind of safety mechanism).

If all else fails, call customer service at 800-726-0190, they can walk you through those steps if I haven't been clear enough. :)

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.

Food processor does not work but light is on


Put the work bowl, lid, and pusher on one piece at a time - handle of work bowl faces the front of the food processor, hollow feed tube faces the back, and the sliding lock switch on pusher sleeve faces the front. Should turn on.

If it doesn't, test the motor - remove the work bowl and other parts completely. Plug the base in and turn it on, and use a pen to push in the dark grey or black button on top of the base - if it spins, the motor is still good - you may just need a replacement part. If it doesn't make a sound, it needs to be sent in to Cuisinart for repair.

Kitchen aid model kfp 7 The wide slicer disk cut into the top of the cover leaving pieces of plastic in the sliced potatoes. What would cause this to happen.


This may be caused by a number of factors. Most commonly, it is because the work bowl is being over-filled or too much pressure is being exerted on ingredients as they fall through the feed tube. Doing this may cause the disc to come off balance and start sheering plastic.

Call Kitchenaid Customer Service and provide them with this description. They will replace the unit free of charge, regardless of it's age or warranty. Their toll-free telephone number is:

I have a kitchenaid kfpw760 food processor. I assembled it as per manual then added ingredients to work bowl, but...my ingredients are below the blade in the bowl and the blade doesn't contact the...


The work bowl lid has a feed tube on it, and the unit should have also come with a "feed tube pusher," a plastic piece to help depress food through the feed tube itself.

With a food processor, you will want to assemble the unit first, engage, and then add ingredients. This will ensure the ingredients fall through the blade and/or disc to be processed thoroughly.
