    That does look exactly like the Sunbeam one I was given about 30 years ago. The plastic embossing showed "Made in France". It was a cool machine until the belt began slipping and the plastic parts began breaking. I just gave up on it and got the KitchenAid one but I honestly don't like the KA because the lip on the bowl is so shallow using it for anything but dry goods is a waste of time. So it's a huge very heavy thing that I plan on getting rid of in favor of another Cuisinart

    That's why I'm going back to the shaft collar on a pool pump.
    Your last pic shows a impeller or drive cog that has to be unscrewed to service the sealed belt housing.
    You get that off, the housing should drop down.

    From the last pic I'm assuming you're talking about that ring around the spindle? Nope, that just keeps it from wobbling when spinning.


    Pls correct me if I'm focussing on the wrong part. Its solidly affixed to the cover at the motor end.

    No, I'm thinking the spindle comes unthreaded off, either righty or lefty loosey.

    Okay but the spindle is loose. Even if unscrews , that's not preventing the housing from separating from the motor assembly.

    Can I post a better (angled) pic?

    I tried some videos for other models but the all show the top already off. I think the model is the masterchef 035. Other ones look very similar.

    Ok, that 035 looks similar (and other moulinex models as well) but the closest one, when the bottom came off, all the "guts" were exposed. Mine, well you see the pic.

    I'm still looking but no joy so far (even foreign language ones are not helpful). There was one where the top section was already off but didn't show how it came off

    Might be time for a new one.



    You might try dripping a small amount of isopropyl alcohol in the actuator mechanism or switch & click or activate it a whole bunch of times in effort to clean the contacts - not much chance of fire or explosion but I'd unplug it while attempting to clean the switch & hit it with compressed air before turning it back on. I'm guessing it was probably a protected/water resistant switch & the rubber/sealing material cracked & allowed liquid in.

    Sucks having to buy a new processor & all new discs.

    I too have a Cuisinart Mini-prep-plus & like it a lot, I also have a 7 or 10 cup full size cuisinart - I'll get the bigger one if I get another.

    I've got the replacement Clint but this seems like such a simple fix. The tab on the bowl slides into the slot/safety tab but doesn't allow the motor to start. AND if it does, the vibration of the motor/belt shakes it out of the slot/disengages the safety lock so it won't run.

    Can't get that xxxx case off.

    And when I get frustrated enough, I will take a dremel to it and "slice 'n dice" that case off and see just what's inside there.
