20 Most Recent Cuisinart DLC-7SFP Pro Food Processor Questions & Answers


Hi-

We have a Cuisinart and these tools are very rugged- so I doubt that the motor is bad. My only suggestion would be to make sure that the safety catch is being actuated when you click the cover clockwise to secure the mixing chamber. There is a hole in the housing that the acuator pin sticks into to disengage the safety switch. Perhaps the switch is not being pressed off.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Try going here:

Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

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!

The main important thing if you have an older machine is to make sure when putting it together that the feed tube from the top aligns with the part of the bowl with the spring, so the button on the base gets depressed correctly. For some, the spring mechanism is on the front with the handle, for some it is opposite the handle.

If you put the top on backwards it won't work correctly, and you might break the catch when trying to get it apart... either on the lid, or the bowl, or both. It can be an expensive mistake.

Try buying a new motor base on eBay. It's actually quite cheap. If you are daunted by the shipping cost of this monster, you can always ask the seller to sell you just the brown bottom cover. Under each foot is a screw which attaches the molded base it to the rest of the assembly. It's a lot cheaper to just have that part sent to you. This works as long as you are handy in making the switch of the base.

Hi jonnros,

Welcome to fixya!

Copy and paste this web address into your browser and take a look at the 4th and 5th pictures: http://www.smallappliance.com/images/smallappliance/english/bowls2.pdf

If this is the part you have, hopefully you can get it back in going by the pic.

If you can't get it to work, this website has the replacement lid. The web address for the lid that fits DLC7 is: http://www.smallappliance.com/product.asp?pid=1107&cur=USD&cam=GA_B_cuisinart_parts&sid=18956&mid=8&gid=18970&prdCls=P&pfor=6270&shopBy=Brand

Hope this helps. Please place a vote for me when you accept this solution. Good luck.

Thanks,
Handie Andie

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.

Improper positioning of bowl, lid and pushers will not close the safety interlock switch. Read the manual.

If the motor is running, the problem can be that the motor shaft is spinning inside the drive sleeve. Replace the sleeve. That is more common than a motor failure.

A Food Processor? They aren't supposed to run with no bowl and lid!

It sounds like you have the lid on wrong. There is a tab on the lid that has to slot into the safety switch on the bowl. There is a plastic tube on the side of the bowl that has a rod that pushes into the switch in the base. Usually you are half a turn or a third of a turn out of kilter.
