    Our Disc stem is stuck and will not come off...

    After use the stem will not come out. We've tried pulling but it won't budge (it usually comes off easily).

    I have the same problem. Normally it comes off so easily but this time it is stuck on tight. I've tried everything to get it off.

    Yes, I have the same problem with a stuck disc stem! I am afraid I will break something major if I try to force it off. Worst yet, my warrantee was up Sept. 2007.

    I have the same problem, and I found out it's processing mozz. cheese (something about moisture content in the cheese). You're suppose to freeze the mozz. cheese before processing it. Too bad they didn't tell me in the manual.

If you mean the post which the cutter thing connects to I have the same problem. I got out my jar of vaseling and smeared vaseline   in the hole after I pried the pole or disk out of the opening with a flat head screwdriver
a bit better   at least it comes out. Now if they would only make the post a tiny bit smaller at the top so the container comes off without a lot of effort,... Mine takes the post with it now that I have put the vaseline on it. good luck

The above-mentioned problem is common with many a Juicers and Food Processors. Don't try to do anything by yourself, take it to an expert techinician instead.

Does any one know where I can get a disc holder to a black and decker cfp-10 food processor.

Are you talking about the "disc stem" that holds the grater disc on? I need one too -- mine cracked down the middle. I LOVE this food processor and hate to get rid of it because of this one problem.

My disc stem is stuck and will not come out.

Without careful use and care, there is a possibility that the disc stem can become fused with the motor shaft. If excess pressure is being applied to the slicing or shredding disc, this can cause immense friction and cause the plastic disc stem to "weld" onto the motor base itself.

I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available.

Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

Disc stem stuck...can't pull it off.

Hey I had the same problem. This may sound primitive and stupid but it worked. Give the stem a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around, it will come off.

I am unable to remove the disc stem

There is no mechanism to lock the stem onto the base of the KFP750. It's just held on by gravity, so you're not missing anything simple!

It's possible that the soap dust got in there and glued in on. Take a blow dryer or very hot rag (use tongs!) to the stem to see if you can soften the soap, then pull up the stem.

The disk stem is stuck

We had the same problem! I was bending a 18" pry bar and couldn't move it! Finally I tapped the spindle LIGHTLY and it broke loose and have had no more problems. I even bought $80 worth of replacement parts and did'nt use them. The serivce center sold me the parts but the Tech refused to talk me thru installing them.
