Question about Cuisinart DLC-5 Food Processor

4 Answers

Cusinart little pro plus

Just bought this nifty little gadget at a garage sale with the chute and juicer attachment, all like new for $2.00!!!! I can retire my old huge processor that I have had for almost 20 years, but here is my problem, it did not come with instructions, and believe it or not things have changed in that many years. I have these white discs and different stemmed blades, and the citrus attachment but don't know how to use them, any help would be appreciated, thank you Anne

    I have had my machine for several years now, and cannot find the instructions. I can't seem to figure out how to use the juicer. Each time I try to use it, juice pours out from the bottom of the attachment and leaks all over the kitchen counter. I'm sure I'm doing it wrong! Any help would be really appreciated!! Thanks!

I have this food processorfor years and I love it. If you need a copy of the manual go to the Cuisinart website - they have all of the maunals listed there. But, here is the instructinos for the juicer. Good Luck. Using The Juicer
Attachment
The Citrus Juicer
Attachment includes:
Strainer Basket, which
locks into processor work
bowl. It has grooved cam
on one side and smooth
locking device on opposite
side. In its center is the:
Juicer Stem Adapter,
which fits over motor shaft
of Pro Plus™.
Small cone, for lemons
and limes. It must always
be attached to Adapter
when Attachment is in use.
Slot in center of underside
fits rib on Adapter.
Medium cone, for oranges
and large cone, for grapefruits.
Both fit over small
cone.
1. Place work bowl on Pro
Plus™ base in usual way.
Hold Strainer Basket
open side up, with
locking device facing
you. Align locking device
slightly to left of locking
tab on front rim of work
bowl.
Place strainer basket on
work bowl, fitting Juicer
Stem Adapter loosely
over motor shaft. Turn
basket counterclockwise
as far as it will go, until it
clicks into position.
Turn Juicer Stem
Adapter clockwise until it
drops into position.
Check that it is down as
far as it will go on the
motor shaft.
2. Hold small cone by top
and place it over Juicer
Stem Adapter, fitting slot
over rib on adapter.
Cut citrus fruit in half and
hold cut side down over
cone. With other hand,
hold control lever in
PULSE position and
press down fruit to
extract juice. For continuous
operation, move
control lever to ON. Twist
fruit to extract most juice.
Do not allow juice to
overflow center tube of
work bowl.
To remove attachment,
remove cone from Juicer
Stem Adapter. Loosen
adapter from motor shaft
by lifting it slightly, straight
up. Hold Strainer Basket
on both sides and turn
clockwise to unlock it from
work bowl. Lift straight up.
Remove work bowl from
base and pour out juice.

I have had one of these little gems for over 20 years and use it frequently. I've worked it hard, and it's starting to complain, so I was thrilled when I found one for sale nearby. To use the juicer you need three parts: the clear lexan bowl, the strainer with attached stem, and the knob part that you push the citrus half down on. Put on the clear bowl, twist to lock. Slide the stem of the strainer over the shaft, set the strainer down on the bowl and twist to lock. Now drop the knob down on top of the stem in the middle of the strainer. That's it! Anything else you need to know about it I can tell you.

Good luck,

Druh

What kind of a receptical do we use to catch the flowing juice after the strainer

I looks like it might just "slobber" over on the counter that one is working on..

Have you attached everything properly?
They have a safety feature that keeps them from running when the basket and top are not attached or not attached properly.

Blade of cusinart dlc 7 superpro food processor will not spin when food is in the bowl- works when no food is in it. Is it is the stem? How do I replace it?


It'll probably cost more to fix than replace. If you have a collection of blades, maybe find one in working order on a shopping site and meld the two together. Happy hunting! Happy New Year!!!!

Your Cuisinart should be warrantied for a little longer (25 minus 15 years) so call the factory to authorize a return or see if you can drop it off at a local retail outlet to save you shipping costs (CA law requires them to accept it for service)..

New ones are only warrantied for 3 years and they cost about $200 on up.

I think your best investment is to get it fixed.

I have a very old cuisinart food processor


Unfortunately the CHM models no longer have replacement parts. If the workbowl parts says something like DLC-7 or DLC-10, then you can call Cuisinart and get replacement parts. CHM models would require finding somthing on eBay.
