20 Most Recent Cuisinart DLC-2007 7 Cups Food Processor Questions & Answers

Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Good luck!

The DLC-8F bowl will not work for the DLC-8M, as I understand the parts list for the 11 cup food processors. However, this site, https://www.kitchenworksinc.com/cuisinart-dlc-8-4-piece-tritan-bowl-kit/ , has a work bowl for the DLC-8 food processor. The bowl fits all models of DLC-8 except the DLC-8E and DLC-8F. The link for the work bowl alone is https://www.kitchenworksinc.com/cuisinart-dlc-8-tritan-workbowl/ .

I hope this helps.

A Food Processor? They aren't supposed to run with no bowl and lid!

It sounds like you have the lid on wrong. There is a tab on the lid that has to slot into the safety switch on the bowl. There is a plastic tube on the side of the bowl that has a rod that pushes into the switch in the base. Usually you are half a turn or a third of a turn out of kilter.

Hello, Sally -

Make sure you have the work bowl properly placed on the base and the lid properly attached to the work bowl. I often have trouble getting the work bowl inserted in the base of our food processor and also have trouble getting the lid fitted into the bowl properly.

Since I have no idea which model of Cuisinart food processor you have, I am unable to advise you further.

The power switch or interlock may have failed.

Don't throw out your Cuisinart-Keurig SS-700 if the switch is broke.

Would you pay $1.84 to fix it? Cuisinart does NOT carry the #1 part most likely to fail, the on-off rocker switch. Most of the parts they do carry you'd only need if you were careless and broke the item, but the switch gets daily use and these snap-in switches are not made to last to begin with. The switch is not listed on their web site and if you call they will tell you it's time for you to buy a new machine. If you are a handyman to the extent of having a solder iron and a Phillips screwdriver then the switch can be bought from a commercial electric/electronics supply house. The shipping costs seven times more than the switch, and much more if you want air freight. The switch itself is $1.84. It's a medium task and will take about 30 minutes tops. The most time taken was 7 days waiting for the normal shipment to arrive. It's PN 15N8920 from Newark Element14 @ "https://www.newark.com/". They are a wholesaler and I didn't volunteer that I wasn't a contractor or business. In the online order form when it asked for company I filled in "Retired" and I answered all the other application form questions they had so I could return there again I needed something they carried. Their form didn't ask if I was a re-seller and my answer would have been "no" but if it had gone down that rabbit hole I may not have been able to order. In my order I bought two of the switches; by the time my SS-700 fails and needs another switch I'll probably be glad I bought the backup. For Cuisinart not to carry that switch is planned obsolescence IMHO. Yes, a homeowner who is not handy with some basic tools might be unable, but even a small town repair business might not go through the trouble I did because they'd have to pay and pass along to you the $20 (90% for shipping)for the part, and by the time they add on a reasonable charge for labor your bill would probably be $70-$90. Facing that amount you might think buying a new one is best for you, you'd get all new, the latest, including a warranty. Imagine if an Ace Hardware or Home Depot carried that switch (I looked), I'd have had it working the same day. Keurig could buy a higher quality switch to manufacture with, but there's more revenue for them going the way they are now, and this planned obsolescence every product maker uses puts more permanent waste in our landfills.,

The set screw on the blade assembly is loose. If the motor does not spin then that is a different story.

The control board (AKA PCB) will need to be replaced.
