Question about Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic Food Processor

I need to replace the plastic cover to my old "all press" model cuisinart food processor

I have an old cuisinart "allpress" food processor made in France.
Recently the cover,which 'clamps" into place,and allows the funnel
to act as a start amd stop handle,was accidentally dropped on the kitchen floor. The part that clamped into place broke off rendering the whole cover useless. Where could I find a replacement cover to this almost antique (but still working before the cover broke) model?

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!

You can get a completely new work bowl set (not the original parts) from Cuisinart for around $118.00. You could also buy one from a shady eBay seller and see if the oldie works. I am a collector of these myself, but in reality, it is probably cheaper to get a new Cuisinart food processor - they are nearly as good as the old ones.

SOURCE: replace the spindle on Cuisinart DLC-7 Food Processor

Did you contact Cuisinart? I just sent my DLC-7 to Cuisinart for repair. The start switch does not latch and works as a pulse switch.

Unfortunately the CHM models no longer have replacement parts. If the workbowl parts says something like DLC-7 or DLC-10, then you can call Cuisinart and get replacement parts. CHM models would require finding somthing on eBay.

SOURCE: How to put new shaft on cuisinart food processor model DLC-7E

Initial disclaimer: I am not recommending this course of action - my recommendation is to buy a new food processor. These units weren't designed for DIY repair, so this is going to be a difficult task. The final product probably isn't even going to be pretty. You are well out-of-warranty, or I wouldn't even consider posting this. First, make sure you have a DLC-7E shaft - the only way to get one at this point would be to buy a DLC-7E base from eBay or an after-market seller, as all of these were manufactured well over 20 years ago. I don't currently see any eBay listings for one, but they do crop up from time-to-time. Make sure the DLC-7E you are repairing and the old one from which you are wrenching the old shaft are unplugged and have been unplugged for an hour or longer just to be on the safe side. Unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the base on both units. If the bottom base does not come off after this, carefully pry out the four feet and unscrew any hidden screws that might be hidden underneath the feet (Careful - original feet cannot be ordered by normal means, and damage will only add to your total repair cost). Take note of the guts on the inside of both food processor bases - if you have to unscrew the motor body (4 screws that sit just underneath the top of the base), take note of everything that you are taking out so that you can put it back in its proper place when done. Wear leather gloves for safety. Please be aware that even an unplugged unit still has the potential to send several volts of electricity through your body - this is a potentially hazardous task. Once the motor body has been unscrewed and removed slightly (don't disconnect any wires or cables - just get the motor body out of your way), you will notice the old shaft that you intend on replacing. Look for any damage to the gears/bearing that surround this shaft. Try dabbing a small amount of USP-grade mineral oil on any bearings - clear away any dust or debris that may be obstructing the shaft from turning. Don't overapply the oil, or the wetness will seep into other electronic components in the motor and cause them to fail. Put your food processor back together, turn it on, and press the button/buttons on top of the base of the food processor with a pen with the food processor plugged in. If the shaft still won't turn, you definitely need to replace the old shaft (you can disregard some of these previous steps if your problem is that the spindle on the old shaft is worn).
Remove the screws and disassemble the processor base as described above. Since there is a layer of paint/coating surrounding the old motor shaft, removing the old shaft may cause paint flecking. Take the shaft from the one food processor base and insert it in the food processor you are trying to repair. Strip away any excess paint/coating from the new shaft. Make sure no paint flakes remain in the body of the food processor, or they will later cause more serious problems that will permanently damage your food processor - potential fire hazard as well. You will probably notice that the new shaft does not look as pretty as your original shaft, since the paint/coating will almost invariably get damaged in this process. Reassemble the base of the food processor, making sure no wires, etc. were knocked out of place in the process. This paint flecking will add to the cost of the repair - you may need to buy appliance body paint that dries to almost a rubbery consistency to make the final project look nice. All of the materials listed above could cost you $40 or more.

Like I said, I don't reccomend this course of action, but there's your answer.

I want to open the base of the processor, but can't find screws


Remove the 4 rectangular rubber pads on the bottom.

Later you will need some Rubber Adhesive Glue to place them back.

This will give you access to the 4 Phillips screws.

I presently own a Cuisinart Food Processor Model# DLC-7.

I hope this helps you.

Won't start


Make sure the work bowl handle is locked in place so that it is facing the front of the processor (same side as the on and off switches).

Make sure the feed tube of the lid is facing toward the back of the processor and that the plastic or metal rod of the pusher sleeve is facing the back of the processor.

Note: this assembly only applies to the Cuisinart DFP-14 series - every Cuisinart has a slightly different assembly for it to turn on.

I have a small Cuisinart food processor and I cannot figure out how to turn it on. It has two levers low and high. I have it plugged in and the lid on? Please help. Fiona Slattery 858-752-8591


Hi,

Your PowerBlend Duet™ comes with a food processor button. This button is the perfect speed for all your food processing tasks. Always use this speed when using the food processor. You may also use the Pulse button with this function for pulse-chopping.
To use your food processor, make sure that the bowl is assembled properly and the blade or slicing/shredding disc and the cover are locked into place.
When you use the control panel, the LED will light next to each button you press.
Press the On button. For continuous operation, press the Food Processor button. Motor will start if you have followed assembly instructions.
To turn motor off, press the Food Processor button again or the Off button.
For on/off operation, called pulse-chopping or pulsing, press the On button, press the Pulse button, and then press and release the
Food Processor button the desired number of times. Motor runs as long as you hold the Food Processor button down. The motor stops when you release control switch. Try it a few times.
You control the duration and frequency of pulses by the length of time you hold the Food Processor button down and the rate at which you press it. Pulses should be short bursts. Allow enough time between pulses to let food in work bowl fall to bottom.
Always use the Food Processor button for pulse/chopping. Never turn cover back and forth to start and stop processor.

Will not cut on


In order for the processor to work, the bowl, lid AND pusher must all be in place - if one part is out of place, it will act dead. The proper assembly varies by model #. If you call Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190, they are very good at getting you through the proper assembly.

Motor switch not activating on a dfp-14ts


Is the cover assembly engaged and locked into place? If you can't lock the cover into place, it's possible that part of the plastic on the cover assembly is broken and not engaging the white rod inside the bowl. Determine which part is at fault (either the bowl or the cover assembly) and replace it.

Install Cuisinart stem cover


I was able to replace my pieces thru Small appliance.com I ordered new parts and the directions on how to remove the old stem and put the new one on.

Put a little vaseline in the rim of the new stem. Use a wooden block and a hammer or rubber mallet and lightly tap the new one into place.

Cuisinart called two weeks after the fact to say I have to send them the machine.....
