Question about Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom Food Processor

1 Answer

I have a DC 8 (DLC 8) Cuisinart Food Processor, 15

I have a DLC 8 Plus Cuisinart Food Processor, 15 years old but only light to moderate use.
Sometimes it makes a squealing sound as it spins but not always or not until it's been going a while. Question is do we get a new one on sale or take this for repair (or even do nothing).

Thanks

jim

Your Cuisinart should be warrantied for a little longer (25 minus 15 years) so call the factory to authorize a return or see if you can drop it off at a local retail outlet to save you shipping costs (CA law requires them to accept it for service)..

New ones are only warrantied for 3 years and they cost about $200 on up.

I think your best investment is to get it fixed.

    I bought a Cusinart because of the lifetime warranty (or so I thought). Maybe it used to be 25 years. But I think it's 5 years.

    New ones have a 3 year warranty, I believe, as noted in my answer.

    Since he mentioned a much older processor, they should warranty it for 25 years. Not sure about the lifetime warranty, but a copy of the user's manual (request to Cuisinart, google or ebay?) should settle the issue.

Need circuit board for DLC 8-PLUS


Rather than replace the circuit board, you might consider going on Ebay and just buy a used replacement base. I got one a few months ago on Ebay at a fraction of the cost of buying a new food processor. Cuisinart parts are popular on Ebay.

Cuisinart DLC-8 Plus Motor Shaft Cover broken.


I had the same problem: Cuisinart sent a "replacement" sheath for my DLC-8E which turned out to be the wrong one. When I replaced mine,which was cracked, none of my blades would fit over the new sheath! I "solved" the problem by purchasing a new DLC-8E motor base on Ebay for only $9.99!

Cuisinat DLC 8 Plus Bowl won't unlock


You have to remove the pusher first by twisting it off. Then press the sides of the pusher sleeve inward and slide the sleeve up and out of place. Then twist off the lid - all twisting on these food processors works either clockwise or counterlcokwise - not both. Then twist the work bowl to the left (clockwise). Voila!

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!
