Most likely a replacement switch is required. MFG may provide the proper switch with instructions on how to replace. If not
there are several online appliance parts stores. Most likely have the part and instructions and may help if you run into problems.
Depending on the age of the machine, I would think the MFG customer service would be interested in how their devices are holding up and will provide the switch, or suggest a source.

The rod might be broken or the spring is not working (in the wrong position)
You should be able to get the part on line or at a local kitchen equipment store

Look for a machine with the same style / bowl size as yours if your specific machine is not available. You can even download more than one to get additional recipes!

You'll have to look around at the options and pick one that looks like the one you have.

If you have an older one, the handle for the bowl generally goes in front, and check the base to see if the button that gets pushed down when the top is in locked position is in the front or the back... and try to match that. The DLC-10s has it in the front (7 cup machine), but many of the larger machines have it in the back. The feed tube matches up with the button when you put the lid on. If you put the lid on with the feed tube 180 degrees off, you can break the lid/bowl getting them apart again.

Getting this right is the most important thing... otherwise they just kind of work. The link for the 7-cup Pro Classic Food Processor (DLC-10s) has really good technique information with color photos. It's worth grabbing regardless of the machine you have.

Other manuals have other recipes... so you might want to download more than one manual.

This is a great source for owner manuals. It's free and if you can't find it on this website, then go directly to Cuisinart website. Most companies have downloadable manuals for their products. Good luck!

The Motor Shaft Cover parts are not shown on the Cuisinart website under parts, but they are available if you call Customer Service. These parts are quite inexpensive (often $3 + s&h). Have your model number ready, and they can get the right one out to you.
