I would check the switch that gets pushed in when the top is engaged. You might want to just push the switch in with a small screwdriver.... without the blade on the cuisinart of course. If the rotor spins it is a faulty switch.

Make sure you dont try this with the blade on.

Lights come on, motor turns briefly, then stops


Check that blade can turn easily with unit unplugged. Fix that first then replace the fuse.

Oh some of these answers... the most common issue with blender is that the removable blade unit starts to jam. So :
1. unscrew it, clean it and make sure it turns easy
2. open the unit and replace the fuse that blew up because turning the blade became too hard.
Voila

Hillary, I have the same problem. Do you think these are the edsels of the food processors. I paid almost $200 for mine, haven't ever used it since I bought it last year. Have you resolved your problem>

Won't start


Make sure it is unplugged !!! If you have a blade tool, Rotate the motor several times in direction of normal rotation. Then all clear, plug it in and see how that does. Repeat if necessary. Sometimes the brushes in the motor are seated and turning the motor helps the realignment. mAKE SURE TO UNPLUG IT!!!! Ned

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.

I can't get the blades on the processor. there is a holder that somehow snaps into the blades before they are put on the processor


The regular chopping blade requires a stem adapter. The other blades require the detachable stem. I would double-check the user manaul to get a visual on it. Cuisinart food processors are great, but they are also the hardest to assemble.
