Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

Power red llight is on, but the motor/blades won't go

I'm trying to use my 11 cup Cuisinart Food processor and have misplaced the manual. The problem I have is that the machine's plugged in, the red light is on, but the motor/blades won't go. What do I need to check? The plug is all the way in the outlet (as far as I can tell), the bowl is locked, and the top is locked in place.

    Power light is on but blades won't turn and the bowl and top are properly locked. It's never been used but I bought it a few years ago.

Well, now I feel totally foolish. The handle on the bowl must be toward the front of the bowl, not the rear otherwise the operating post won't engage.

Either it's broken or the bowl or top isn't locked

Machine on but not working

The video is generic, and may actually show a different model with completely different assembly instructions. For the DLC-8S and DFP-11 series, you want work bowl handle facing the front of the processor, feed tube on lid facing back of the processor, and sliding lock switch facing the front of the machine. For the DLC-2011, you want work bowl handle facing front, lid lined up with work bowl handle, and metal element hanging from pusher facing front.

To make sure the motor is working first, remove the work bowl, blade, etc. completely from the base of the food processor. Plug the base in and turn the food processor on. Then use a pen to press in the dark gray or black button on top of the processor - if it makes a sound, your motor is good. If it doesn't, call Cuisinart and get your processor repaired.

Good luck!

Cuisinart DLC- 8M

Those older Cuisinart food processors have motors that generally last forever. But a replacement bowl can cost $118.00 or more. The newer processors like the DLC-8S do have a 3-year general warranty and a 5-year motor warranty. The new DLC-2011, 2007, 2014 series etc. have 10-year motor warranties. I like the collect the oldies, but the new ones have few problems even though they are made in China. If an old processor's plastic breaks, you have to buy a completely new bowl set - if a new processor's plastic breaks, then you can buy a single component piece to solve the problem. Hope this helps.
