How to replace broken shaft on Cuisinart Food Processor

The shaft on my Pro Custom 11 processor broke .

The model of the processor is DLC 8S TX

I bought a replacement shaft on Amazon but I can not take off the old broken one. We tried wise-grips with wood underneath to try to pull it off, wise-grips and hammer but no luck - it did not budge at all.

I am considering trying to take it all apart but not sure if that would even help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.Name:  IMG_4044.jpg

That would be vise grips. The problem with vise grips is you don't want to mar the metal shaft.

How about using a small screwdriver to pry under and slide the fitting up ?
A drop of penetrating oil down the shaft may help too.

Taking the unit apart won't help.... as it needs to come straight up.

LOL - maybe if I had "wise" grips it would work better!

We tried screwdriver but it was just braking the little plastic that is left on the bottom. I will try the penetrating and just regular vise grips again.

Can you give us a close up pic of the new shaft cover from the metal end, showing the hole that slides over the shaft?

Here a picture I found online.


Searching online I found that some people grabbed the old shaft cover with Vice Grip pliers and pried and hammered up on the pliers to remove the cover. They mention using a block of wood and hammering to get the new cover in place so it must fit pretty tightly.
