Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

Brand NEw DLC-8 not working.

New out of the box Cuisinart DLC-8 not working. I've checked that everything is locked. I noticed if I hold the white rod down that is near the locking mechanism for the lis, it works. Should the lid slide over this rod and lock and it does not(or is unable because it is sticking up).

If a part of the work bowl is damaged, it will not properly trigger the motor. Replace the workbowl (original DLC-8 parts not available, but an expensive replacement workbowl is available).

The stem in the DLC-8E Cuisinart food processor does it just pull straight up off the motor shaft?

Yes it does. It is a snug fit on the blade shaft, if you mean the tall shaft that powers the shredder discs? The short one that holds the cutting blade is not removable.

The tall stem is shown here

I have a vintage Cuisinart DLC 8M processor. I need to replace the work bowl and have found a DLC 8F online. Would the work bowl from the 8F fit my 8M?

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.

I have a cuisinart pro classic food processor, and even though bowl and top are locked in place, it will not start.

On the processor look at the bowl and lid and see where they are supposed to engage the motor. If this is broken then that is the problem, find something to push on where the part of the the bowl and lid assembly would push, if it comes on then you have figured out the problem.

I have a DC 8 (DLC 8) Cuisinart Food Processor, 15

Your Cuisinart should be warrantied for a little longer (25 minus 15 years) so call the factory to authorize a return or see if you can drop it off at a local retail outlet to save you shipping costs (CA law requires them to accept it for service)..

New ones are only warrantied for 3 years and they cost about $200 on up.

I think your best investment is to get it fixed.

Cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.

I had the same problem: Cuisinart sent a "replacement" sheath for my DLC-8E which turned out to be the wrong one. When I replaced mine,which was cracked, none of my blades would fit over the new sheath! I "solved" the problem by purchasing a new DLC-8E motor base on Ebay for only $9.99!

Cuisinart food processor DLC 8 Plus - can't unlock new bowl

I just had the same problem! I gently tapped the the bottom of the handle with a hammer in a clockwise direction. It finally unlocked and is now working fine. Good luck!

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.
