How does one replace cuisinart motor shaft sheath? Answered
I was given a friend's grandmother's dlc-7 Cuisinart. The old sheath has the upper half of the side without metal underneath broken off. The plastic is super brittle. I've gotten a replacement part. It looks as though the old one should slide off and the new one slide on. It's not working out that way.
We've cleaned off the corrosion on the shaft that's exposed and cleaned up the plastic with paint thinner. Pulling on the sheath hasn't worked. I've considered super gluing the broken piece back on, but would really like to install the new sheath.
