Drive shaft broken and melted

I tried to process soft cheese and the shaft melted and cracked in half length wise and I cannot remove it and the small black part on the bottom is no longer stantionary. How do I get it off to replace it? and should the little black crown be replaced as well? and should it be stationary and how do I do that?

SOURCE: part removal and replacement

The black plastic clutch has a left-handed brass threaded insert. Temporarily remove the motor to hold the shaft and remove the brass insert by rotating clockwise.

SOURCE: cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.

I wrote in December with my problem and went on the web sites mentioned. A cover only cost $69.00. A new bowl and cover was $99.00. I only needed the cover. The new cover did not work and I ended up going to Macy's when they had the DLC-8S on sale for $99.00 and bought a new one. I took my blades with me and they fit the new machine. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY (unless you find an old machine at a yard sale) THE PARTS COSTS AS MUCH AS A NEW MACHINE ON SALE. ees

SOURCE: Cracked plastic sheath on the motor drive shaft

The shaft is spinning inside the sleeve. So is should not be hard to remove. With a DLC-7SP, I grabbed the spindle with some pliers, channel locks might do well and put a handle of a screwdriver between the pliers and the top deck and pried. Second attempt and it pulled up easily. Place the screwdriver beside one of the top deck screw covers to transfer force directly to the motor. Otherwise top deck would probably break.

Clean the old shaft to remove any contamination.

New one can be driven on with a hammer and block of wood.

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.

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!

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.

Go to the cuisinart website and you can buy replacement parts. You will have to buy the entire shaft not just the top but it is still good!
