Jammed Blade The blade on my machine has gotten stuck on the shaft for the second time under normal operation. The first time I took it to someone who removed it and wouldn't tell me how. Any ideas on what to do?

Had the same problem. The Cuisinart folks said to fill it with hot tap water - not boiling - then turn it on and off. The heat from the water will unstick the bowl. If it doesn't work first time - refill with hot water and try again. Worked like a charm for me.

The bowl of my 14 c food processor will not release from the base - the cutting blade is in place

You will probably need to force the blade off the shaft somehow. If you over work them the blade can partly turn and lock onto the plastic shaft sleeve. A Kitchen Aid Authorised repairer will have figured out a way to remove it by now because it's been happening for years. Expect to replace the blade or the sleeve or both, once it's happened it's easier to happen a second time unless you replace parts.

I am looking for a Magimix Food Processor cutting blade

Email your local Magimix distributor with a photo of the machine, the blade and the motor shaft. If you strike someone old enough they may recognise it.

How to remov blades

The blade will be stuck on the shaft and both will be damaged and require replacement. With that knowledge you now understand that drilling a hole sideways through the blade cap isn't wrecking anything you are going to use again. You can then get something into the hole for leverage. Here in NZ blades are under $20 and motor shaft sleeve is about $5.

I have the 14-Cup Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor. Up until recently it was working fine. Recently when using the shredder blade, when I insert food into the feeding tube the blade stops...

If the unit works OK with other attachments and the problem is only with the one cup; then the blade may be loose and spins on the shaft, the connection gear under the bottom is worn or binding up. Debris is stuck around the blade shaft or from heating up the metal parts expanded and bind when turning.

Locked in blade

My old Cuisinart has this problem because the motor shaft and the corresponding socket on the cutter are worn. The shaft has jammed in the cutter. To un-jam it, stick a bar of wood behind one blade of the cutter (I use the wood handle of my dough whisk) and give it a light, sharp tap with a hammer. Check after every tap to see if it is loose, if not do it again. You want to tap against the back side of the cutter, not the cutting edge side. The socket on your cutter may be cracked, allowing it to open up and slip (and jam) under the stress of cutting. You'll probably need a new one. If the motor shaft is also worn, that can also be replaced. The new part is about $10. I got a few more months of life from my cutter by reinforcing the inner socket with a thin plastic tube from the barrel of a syringe.

My Cuisinart Pro Classic is leaking! When I tried to make corn pudding at Christmas, something I've done many times before, the liquids poured out all over the counter. Everything seemed in place and the...

it is either the seal around the blade shaft that is worn (but if it is worn so much that liquids can leak, then you probably heard the machine vibrate more than normal or sound screechy). Or it is the gasket at the bottom of the container that is not seated well or is out of shape. Goodluck, Macgivor
