The bowl on my cuisinart food processor is locked in place. How can I unlock it to remove the bowl?


You don't say what model, but all Cuisinarts have a safety interlock built in to the bowl assembly. The cover must be removed from the bowl to release this interlock before you can remove the bowl from the motor base.

SHOW ME HOW TO REMOVE THE BOWL


IF your bowl is stuck, then gently pry it with a thin flat edge screwdriver. If the bow is separated from the base then you will have to glue it. Watch the youtube video to see how she removes a bowl that is not damaged. http://youtu.be/OMrhdg7Jfa8

Then I put Cuisinart on my list of DO NOT BUY ... anything can have problems, but something obviously this chronic should be handled better by the manufacturer ... it should have been taken off the market and fixed ...

I've triggered some alarm and I cant turn it off! I'm using a Cuisinart DGB 600 Coffeemaker, that is. I pressed "Program" thinking that was how to set the tine; held it down for a long time; and now it...


OK, here's the owner's manual for your coffee maker. I've got to run out for dinner, otherwise I'd give you the step-by-step, but the manual contains all the info you need to resolve this.

Also, it's nice to have a manual for any other issues you might come across, (programming auto brewing, cleaning, etc.)

Print and download a copy to save on your PC for future use and reference too.

DGB 500 Grinder


You may try opening the front cover first and removing the filter then after opening the top lid, remove the clear grinder cover and lift the grinder from the rear. After you get it out be sure to clean the motor drive shaft and the bottom of the grinder. then use a trace of vegetable oil to lubricate the motor shaft where is attaches to the grinder.

We are on our second coffee maker and it makes great coffee.

The beeping is typically caused by the grinder safety interlock. There is a small pin on the clear grinder cover that needs to be in place so that it is depressed into the safety switch when the cover is closed. The interlock switch prevents the grinder from working when the cover is open. Check to be sure that the pin in the grinder cover is not broken.

Motor switch not activating on a dfp-14ts


Is the cover assembly engaged and locked into place? If you can't lock the cover into place, it's possible that part of the plastic on the cover assembly is broken and not engaging the white rod inside the bowl. Determine which part is at fault (either the bowl or the cover assembly) and replace it.

Stuck Grinder Bowl


This seems to be a widespread problem on units manufactured in 2007 and later.

Unplug the unit from the AC outlet. Remove the six screws that hold the lower plastic cover on the motor base (four screws are hidden under the adhesive rubber footpads). This exposes the lower end of the motor shaft, which has a slot in it. By inserting a flat blade screwdriver into the slot and holding the cutting blades with a rag or a wad of paper towel to avoid cutting one's fingers, it is possible to twist the shaft back and forth about 90 degrees. You may need another person to help, because one needs to perform this twisting action while pulling the motor base away from the grinding cup and blade assembly.

Once you get the @&%$#! thing apart, reassemble the motor base. (With the slotted motor shaft, why didn't the designers simply put a hole in the plastic base so one could stick a screwdriver in without disassembling it?) Plug it into the wall outlet and use a small object like a toothpick or matchstick to activate the recessed motor switch so you can spin the motor without the grinding cup in place. Use the blunt edge of a small snap-blade utility knife as a scraper to gently scrape the plastic pin of the motor shaft as it spins, much as one would work a wood turning lathe. Periodically check the fit of the brass hub of the grinding cup on the plastic pin. Continue to shave the pin until the grinding cup slips onto and off the pin with no resistance. Take care to machine the pin uniformly from top to bottom; avoid making grooves.

Why this mechanism worked properly when my grinder was new about 18 months ago and suddenly decided to get stuck this week is a bit of a mystery. The unit in question has been used since it was purchased exclusively to grind flax seed, but the ill-fitting pin normally doesn't come into contact with foods, anyway. There was no obvious evidence of swelling of the plastic due to heat from the motor or oils from seeds. Since the blade and hub are free to travel up and down on the plastic motor shaft pin a bit, I suspect that on occasion the blade doesn't settle properly and the clutch doesn't engage, allowing the pin to spin in the brass bushing until it starts melting, and then the hub settles so that the clutch is fully engaged. This may happen in a matter of just a couple of seconds of operation. Once that happens, the pin conforms to the microscopic grooves inside the brass bushing, allowing it to still turn slightly relative to the motor shaft, but locking it on so that it can't come apart. If Cuisinart had made the pin more tapered and the hole in the brass bushing to match, much like a Jacobs taper on an industrial drill press spindle, this would be much less of a problem.

BOTTOM LINE: Before loading the grinding cup and starting the grinder, push the blade hub down with your finger to make sure the clutch is fully engaged.

Cup for grinder


This happened to mine this morning. I was so frustrated because the reason I bought this was because of the removeable bowl. My bf got it off but he broke off a piece of plastic (he is pretty sure the piece of plastic was on the bowl part).

I put it back on and it kind still worked- I think I will just need to get a replacement bowl now - but it was hard to get off again.

When I tried to get it off the second time, I moved it into the "unlocked" postion and then manipulated the the blade part while pulling and it came off - but of course mine was broken already.

There appears to be two areas where it locks - on the base and a part on the bowl. I think somehow they get out of synch.

The problem is not with the base I think but with the bowl.

Although, now that it is "sorta" broken - I can't remember what parts were supposed to be loose before and which ones were not. The blade part of the bowl is very loose now. My boyfriend is pretty sure the plastic broke off the bowl part so I am going to get another bowl. I hope that solves my problem!
