How to Change a Magimix Food processor plastic spindle.

This is meant as a guide only BBS ltd takes no responsibility for any damage done. We always advise that this should be done by a Magimix approved service agent.


The spindle is the part that sticks out of the motor this drives the blades, knifes, discs and cones for the food processor, this part may become worn after time or use.


Cover the main body with a cloth so as not to damage the look of the food processing machine.

Place two blocks of wood about 10cms either side of spindle cover. Then place two flat screwdrivers Horizontal either side of Magimix food processor spindle

Push down on handle of screwdrivers apply even pressure (keeping eyes well away from the spindle cover, they can fly off fast sometimes.)
The spindle will rise.


This will leave the metal centre shaft, Replace with a spindle cover bought from
www.magimix-spares.co.uk. Make sure you choose correct model, usually named on front of machine, or phone 01252 727755 for help.

When replacing, make sure that the New Food processor spindle is lined up and slide the spindle onto the centre shaft. Make sure this goes all the way down by gently tapping with a hammer.



All blades and attachments should be checked before placing back onto spindle cover, if the inside is damaged, this could damage the spindle cover again, any blade, dough blade , disc support that is marked should be replaced.

The solution posted by BBS would not work for me. However, when I warmed the plastic cover with a hair-dryer, the plastic spindle (shaft) cover came off very easily.

Spindle shaft on KFP600AC has stripped . Have replacement but cannot remove old one. we are seniors and not too st.rong physically .! Any suggestions. Thank you in anticipation. Lysbeth


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.

The center spindle on my Magimix 5150 is stripped and needs to be replaced. Any idea if this is a do-it-yourself project if I can buy the part or should I send it out to be repaired?


Just researching the same problem. Apparently your can find the spare parts here:
http://www.magimix-spares.co.uk/Magimix-5200,-5100-spindle-cover-white,-Nylon-driveshaft-/product/104991/104991/
The old one is has push fit on an inner spindle and apparently can be prized off from outside without dismantling the machine. See the link below for further details.:

Magimix blade is stuck


You need to replace the spindle i'm afraid which gets worn after a time. There a UK company that sells replacements and tells you how to replace it. Not a big job though a bit tricky. magimixspares.com

Replace the spindle on Cuisinart DLC-7 Food Processor


You need to pull the old one off, probably with vise grips and a lot of effort, and then order a new one. The new one is a tiny bit larger, so you'll probably need to order new blades, too. The new one slips right on, so there's no issue that would be the reverse of removing the old one. I read somewhere else that you have to pound hard to get the new one on, but that guy must have been speaking about the older model spindles. I was perplexed that the new one slipped right on so I pounded it to be sure and ended up breaking the tip of the new spindle and cracking the housing of the whole processor.

The spindle (middle thingie) is broken


I don't know about the little lip you're referring to, but the central spindle that comes up from the base of our KitchenAid 12 cups food processor KFP750WH0 splintered and broke while we were using it. We ordered a replacement motor sleeve shaft part number KA8211849 from the Gourmet Depot for $4.95 plus $3.50 s/h. Removing the broken plastic sleeve shaft was the difficulty; it isn't glued or screwed on but somehow it didn't want to be pulled, pried, or cut off. With the help of our neighbor fix-it man and all four of us working at it with screwdrivers, we got the old broken part up and off. Pushing the new one onto the metal motor shaft was easy, and it was fixed!

Stuck sunbeam blade on spindle


Put some water in it and run it for a minute or so. That helped me with the same problem on the same processor.
