Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor
The motor shaft cover on our DLC-8 Plus food processer cracked and we can't find a replacement. Cuisinart says they no longer carry it. Any suggestions?
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

I got the part from smallappliance.com and it went on fine. The problem is that now my old bowl and none of the blades fit on it. My model is too old. I called cuisinart and she said they no longer make parts for my machine. I would have to find an old one and get the part off of it.

Hi...the motor shaft cover is available from a view sources on the web. Unfortunately, removal of the cover and replacement is far from easy and probably should be done by someone who knows what they are doing. I was able to remove the cracked cover but when I tried to replace it with the new one, it shattered into several pieces. I recommend you contact www.smallappliance.com They have the part and will install it for you.

The letter after the DLC-8 is critical to finding the right part. Very hard to find. I would call the local small appliance shops until you find a collector with an old processor that would be willing to sell you the parts.
