Cuisinart food processor DLC 8 Plus - can't unlock new bowl

I just got a new replacement work bowl for this processor, I had a difficult time getting it to lock on, now can't get it off. I'm afraid to break something. Any suggestions?

    I have as Cuisinart Classic (pretty old) and the bowl was very difficult to put on/off. I was worried about breaking it. I put a thin layer of olive oil around the base where the bowl attaches and this seemed to help the two pieces glide past one another easier.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I just had the same problem! I gently tapped the the bottom of the handle with a hammer in a clockwise direction. It finally unlocked and is now working fine. Good luck!

SOURCE: Cuisinat DLC 8 Plus Bowl won't unlock

You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

Need circuit board for DLC 8-PLUS


Rather than replace the circuit board, you might consider going on Ebay and just buy a used replacement base. I got one a few months ago on Ebay at a fraction of the cost of buying a new food processor. Cuisinart parts are popular on Ebay.

Cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.


I had the same problem: Cuisinart sent a "replacement" sheath for my DLC-8E which turned out to be the wrong one. When I replaced mine,which was cracked, none of my blades would fit over the new sheath! I "solved" the problem by purchasing a new DLC-8E motor base on Ebay for only $9.99!

Lid stuck on bowl of my Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus.


Generally they twist off, but on the DLC-2, if the lid won't come off, a replacement bowl and lid is around $18.00

Often it is difficult to unlock the bowl on the cuisinart food processor


Have you tried removing the lid first? Mine has an interlock where I have to remote the lid before I can unlock the bowl from the machine. Good luck!

Brand NEw DLC-8 not working.


If a part of the work bowl is damaged, it will not properly trigger the motor. Replace the workbowl (original DLC-8 parts not available, but an expensive replacement workbowl is available).

Wont run


If you try the instructions below, and the motor test fails, you can send it in to Cuisinart for a trade-in, but the trade-in will be just as expensive as getting a new food processor (unless your product has an extra-long motor warranty):

You can test the motor by plugging the food processor in, pressing the on switch and using a pen to press the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor. As long as it spins, the motor is definitely good. Next, unplug the food processor. For the food processor to work, you need to have the work bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve all inserted - if one part of the work bowl is not attached, then the food processor will not spin the blade. Once all three pieces have been inserted, plug it in and turn it on. If the blade is still not spinning, then there is a problem with the element that runs from the back of the pusher sleeve down through the work bowl that triggers the motor button. In that event, you can go to Cuisinart's website and order a new bowl, lid, and/or pusher sleeve - if you see any obvious damage to one part, you can order just that one part. If it is not apparent which part is damaged, order the whole work bowl. Make sure you enter your exact model# at Cuisinart's website, because a DLC-7 is not the same as a DLC-7E or 7P, for instance. The work bowl parts are expensive, so I would just write down the part numbers from Cuisinart's website and find them cheaper elsewhere. There is also a video on the website that shows you how to use the food processors - the first part of the video describes work bowl assembly. Once you get this food processor working, it is going to last forever. Have fun!
