The blade will be stuck on the shaft and both will be damaged and require replacement. With that knowledge you now understand that drilling a hole sideways through the blade cap isn't wrecking anything you are going to use again. You can then get something into the hole for leverage. Here in NZ blades are under $20 and motor shaft sleeve is about $5.

SOURCE: Blade will not release

Our blade just came apart at the seam just above the blade, so we know what's inside. There is a small v-shaped piece of spring wire that is spread apart from the stem that is mounted to the machine. When the button is depressed (it's on a tiny spring, like a mattress spring, and that's what makes it bouncy), it spreads the v-spring wire and releases it. If you can get the seam apart, it will release the v wire and not damage the machine. Replacement blades are available on-line for $13.95, and whole machines are available on e-bay. Good luck.

I phoned the 800 number at Cuisinart (800-243-8540) and the person who answered the phone explained to me what to do: Fill the bowl with the hottest tap water I have (but not boiling) above the entire blade (including the part that fits over the shaft). He said to pulse a few times, then try to pull it off, but not to expect it to work right away. He said to do this until it comes off and that it could take 1/2 hour. I did what he said, and the blade came off after the first pulses. But also, the water was pouring out all over the counter--leaking between the bowl and the base (possibly because my old work bowl is also cracked, but I'm not sure).

I was told that the problem would happen again, and that I needed replace the blade and the shaft (which is cracked, as he guessed), both of which are available from Cuisinart.

If the blade is actually fused, I would seek professional help to avoid slicing your fingers off. You can test to see if it is fused by removing the lid of work bowl, twisitng work bowl to the left, and removing the work bowl - if work bowl will not come off (difficult even under normal circumstances), then find out from Cuisinart if you are still under warranty.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DLC-7--blade stuck--cannot remove from bowl.

First off, is it a BLADE that's stuck, or a DISC?
If it's a disc, and the disc is blocking your access to the center post, put a ziploc baggie full of ice on top of the disc (right in the middle) and let it sit for about half an hour. That should shrink the plastic enough to pop it out.

If it's a blade, you can try the ice trick, or you can try Pam (or another food grade cooking spray) to loosen it up, and then just try to take the workbowl off like you usually would (aka, DO NOT grab the blade, or you'll risk cutting yourself--you can just pull up on the bowl, and the blade should pop off.

If you need further help, you can always contact Cuisinart--their phone number (according to their website, www.cuisinart.com ) is 1 800 726 0190



Good luck! :)

The cup with the blade is stock onto the motor part, how do i take it apart?


There is no trick, just brute force. You will need to renew the chopping blade and the plastic sleeve it fits on to as both will be damaged and it will happen again, more easily each time. Your local Kitchen Aid service agent will have figured out a tool to get them off. My tool involves a chain shackled around the centre of the blade and the other end attached to my bench. I accelerate the motor unit away from the bench by hand and when the chain goes bang tight the blade comes off. No bowl damage that way. Similar method to remove motor sleeve with hole drilled through top of shaft sleeve for shackle.

I have an old Braun Food Processor and today while making cheesecake in the machine, it started to make a funny noise and then it would not allow me to remove the chopping blade from the base. Any idea...


Best bet would be to send it to a Braun service center. It is possible that the Blade has now fused to the motor shaft. Try Smallappliance.com, they are authorized and have years of experience with Braun and other products. service@smallappliance.com

Put in nuts and turned to mush


It is extremely difficult to chop walnuts in a food processor, because they turn to powder within a few seconds. I have chopped them using both a Cuisinart food processor and a Moulinex La Machine. The difficulty arises because even after you have released the on or chop button, the blade continues to spin for a second or two. The Cuisinart DLC-8S is not particularly well-suited for chopping nuts, because the blade is not reversible - there are many Cuisinarts that do have reversible blades - a particularly good one is the Cuisinart DLC-2A, which has both a reversible blade and a Chop function (retails for about $29.99 to 39.99 nowadays).

The only way to have any success whatsoever with the DLC-8S is to press the pulse button and release immediately - only use a small amount of walntus - and then dump the bowl and add a few more at a time.

I need a part


Are you looking for the blade assembly for the chopping bowl? It has the blade and removal tool. I have an order of parts coming that I won on eBay, which I wanted for the DoughWorks, plus to replace my lid for the Vegetable Chef, as mine has a broken strap. There are duplicates of parts I won't need in it. Please send an email to clay_pots_47@msn.com and put La Machine Parts in the subject line and describe what you need. I can't help those of you asking about La Machine II, entirely different machine. I only have parts to fit the original Moulinex 500 series machines.
