Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

My food processor plastic container has never slipped on and off with ease i have to smash it into place and the double smash the handle to remove it from the base. I would like to get a new upper container and see if the original was just defective. The unit is about 19 years old, but hardly used due to this problem. The Model # is DLC -8M Cuisinart Custom 11 PRO

You can get a completely new work bowl set (not the original parts) from Cuisinart for around $118.00. You could also buy one from a shady eBay seller and see if the oldie works. I am a collector of these myself, but in reality, it is probably cheaper to get a new Cuisinart food processor - they are nearly as good as the old ones.

New magimix won't start


It is most likely the way the bowl and lid are set.

Facing the machine:
the bowl locks in, with the handle to your right directly above the switches. The lid has a double tab...see underside of the top of the lid. Place the lid on tightly with both tabs locked into bowls handle. It really clicks in.

Cannot turn the lid on to kitchenaid food processor


It sounds like you need a new working bowl. It is not uncommon for that safety switch mechanism to fail inside the handle.

Our new food processor doesn't fit our old Bosch


There is a separate discussion on this on fixya. The plastic piece should automatically "retract" back into the handle when you attach the processor. Some have removed teh plastic piece and reports it works then, but you should not need to do that.

Need to clean inside of handle on KitchenAid food processor


The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.

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

Jammed cutting blade in cuisinart tube


Try immersing the tube in super hot water. The plastic might expand just enough to let you slip out the blade. Since the tube is dishwasher safe, there should be no harm. A little soap in the water might help it slip out.

Cuisinart 7 cup food processor wont' start


Remove the work bowl completely. Turn the machine on and use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on the base of the food processor. If the motor doesn't spin, it needs repair. If there is spinning:
Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked psoition. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work.

Can't figure out how to turn on Regal LaMachine I food processor


It's very easy--but you have to know the trick--I know 'cause it took me awhile to figure it out. Place the machine with the on-off/pulse button on your left. Lock the container in place--the handle will be on your right. Put the blade on the shaft. This is the trick: Lock the lid in place so that the shoot is directly in front of you and the "***" slides into the **** on the left of the machine (between the container and the inside of the machine, left of the on-off button). Good luck!

Food processor attachment won't fit the machine


I actually got tired of trying to figure it out and just unscrewed the bottom and removed the plastic part. It works fine now!
I had a screwdriver to use with a mobile phone, I think its called t9 or something.

Appears to be locked but won't turn on


ah! well my mother just tried using her DLC-10S 7 cup food processor and she also encountered the same problem. It worked perfectly fine when she first used it around Christmas time but not anymore.

After almost smacking the hell out of it we discovered that there is a plastic tab on the lid towards the handle side. This plastic tab actually pushes a lever through the cup and into the base of the food processor.

New Bee actually mentions this above. The problem is that the flimsy plastic tab in the handle isn't stiff enough to push the lever down anymore. I'm amazed it worked the first time.

This is very much a design flaw by Cuisinart as there's no way this plastic tab would ever last.

Now there is a small opening in the case right above the plastic tab. To get our food processor going we just pushed a chopstick down on the tab and held it in place while the food processor runs.

This is very much a temporary solution until we get a new food processor, obviously a different model.
