Re: Disc stem stuck

If you mean the post which the cutter thing connects to I have the same problem. I got out my jar of vaseling and smeared vaseline   in the hole after I pried the pole or disk out of the opening with a flat head screwdriver
a bit better   at least it comes out. Now if they would only make the post a tiny bit smaller at the top so the container comes off without a lot of effort,... Mine takes the post with it now that I have put the vaseline on it. good luck

I have an Oster 3200 Food processor, and the small disc stem that attaches to the blades broke. I have looked all of creation and can't seem to find one. Any hints on finding one?

In case "all over creation" did not include a local appliance parts supplier, try that. You also can contact Oster directly to find out whether the part is available and source.

My disc stem is stuck and will not come out.

Without careful use and care, there is a possibility that the disc stem can become fused with the motor shaft. If excess pressure is being applied to the slicing or shredding disc, this can cause immense friction and cause the plastic disc stem to "weld" onto the motor base itself.

I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available.

Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

Disc stem stuck...can't pull it off.

Hey I had the same problem. This may sound primitive and stupid but it worked. Give the stem a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around, it will come off.

I am unable to remove the disc stem

There is no mechanism to lock the stem onto the base of the KFP750. It's just held on by gravity, so you're not missing anything simple!

It's possible that the soap dust got in there and glued in on. Take a blow dryer or very hot rag (use tongs!) to the stem to see if you can soften the soap, then pull up the stem.

The disk stem is stuck

We had the same problem! I was bending a 18" pry bar and couldn't move it! Finally I tapped the spindle LIGHTLY and it broke loose and have had no more problems. I even bought $80 worth of replacement parts and did'nt use them. The serivce center sold me the parts but the Tech refused to talk me thru installing them.

Install Cuisinart stem cover

I was able to replace my pieces thru Small I ordered new parts and the directions on how to remove the old stem and put the new one on.

Put a little vaseline in the rim of the new stem. Use a wooden block and a hammer or rubber mallet and lightly tap the new one into place.

Cuisinart called two weeks after the fact to say I have to send them the machine.....
