Question about KitchenAid Professional KFP770 Food Processor

Open Question

Broken spindle The plastic rounded-on-two-sides, flat on the other two, spindle cracked on the base of the machine. Beneath, the metal part, and the rest of the drive works fine. So there's nothing for any of the chop/process, slice parts to grab onto and actually chop, process, etc. Is there anywhere I can get it fixed?

SOURCE: The spindle (middle thingie) is broken

I don't know about the little lip you're referring to, but the central spindle that comes up from the base of our KitchenAid 12 cups food processor KFP750WH0 splintered and broke while we were using it. We ordered a replacement motor sleeve shaft part number KA8211849 from the Gourmet Depot for $4.95 plus $3.50 s/h. Removing the broken plastic sleeve shaft was the difficulty; it isn't glued or screwed on but somehow it didn't want to be pulled, pried, or cut off. With the help of our neighbor fix-it man and all four of us working at it with screwdrivers, we got the old broken part up and off. Pushing the new one onto the metal motor shaft was easy, and it was fixed!

Can I change the plastic motor spindle on a magimix 5100?

Yes you can, you can "cut" it off with a soldering iron by melting a slot down one side. When banging a new one on you need to remove the base and suppert the bottom of the shaft with something solid underneath it. The whole motor assembly will be sitting on this as you bang the new sleeve on with a soft mallet. If you don't there is a danger you will wreck the motor and you cannot afford to replace that bit.

Replace the motor shaft cover on cuisinart dlc 7

I have a DLC7pro from around 1982 that I just replaced the sheath on.


To remove the sheath I use a small pipe cutter and took the sheath off in approximately ½ inch sections. Once the circular cut was complete I used a plier to pull off the section. - This method worked GREAT! Be sure you get ALL of the white plastic off and be sure to remove the ½ inch brass "ring" which is part of the old sheath. Also, make sure no plastic "crumbs" are in the base of the shaft where the new sheath will sit. You will see that the metal shaft has a flat side. With a sharpie marker, mark the metal shaft near the base to indicate where the center of the flat side is.


When you look at the replacement sheath, you will notice flat sides on the outside of the sheath. If you look inside the sheath, you will see two "nubs", these nubs form a flat inner side of the sheath . Unfortunately these nubs do NOT line up with the flat outside sections. Use a sharpie marker to mark the center point of the two inner nubs. The inner flat side HAS to match up perfectly with the flat side of the shaft. The marker helps you do that.

Line the inner flat side of the sheath up with the flat side of the metal shaft and push the sheath on your hand as far as it will go. It should go about an inch from the base.

Put the base on a mat on the floor ( you don't want to damage your floor) . Next you will need a hammer, piece of 2x4 wood and BRUTE STRENGHT! - Please note that once you hammer this, even just one strike and the sheath will NOT come off. Put the 2" side of the wood against the top of the sheath. Using more force than you think you should need - strike the wood to hammer the sheath all the way down. It should take 3 - 5 very hard strikes. If the base of the sheath rubs on the bottom of your workbowl - they will fuse together, so be sure the sheath is seated as far down as you can get it. Again, it takes a LOT

Cuisinart DL 11: Cracked plastic drive shaft

If it is in warranty, it can be sent to Cuisinart for repair. If it is out-of-warranty, it will cost more than a new food processor to repair.
