Well, now I feel totally foolish. The handle on the bowl must be toward the front of the bowl, not the rear otherwise the operating post won't engage.

I just had the same problem! I gently tapped the the bottom of the handle with a hammer in a clockwise direction. It finally unlocked and is now working fine. Good luck!

Make sure the tab on the lid is making contact with the "tower" in the back and that the work bowl is locked properly into place so that the plastic tabs show on each side toward the bottom of the work bowl.

We fixed the same problem with the same Cuisinart DLC-10S, the problem was the white plastic switch on the work bowl - - it was placed above a short clear plastic partition which blocked the switch from pushing the plunger enough to start the motor. It came out of the box that way, bad quality control. I pushed the white plastic switch down over the partition and now the machine works, and the switch can push the pole down the amount needed to start the motor. Very sloppy packaging by Cuisinart. Now the appliance is working, so far. My wife still likes Cuisinart but I'm suggesting she look at other brands next time. The owners manual for this appliance is C*R*A*P and next to useless.
