What is wrong with my Cuisinart?

I'm new to this forum and have spent some time today reading through the posts when it occurred to me that one or more of you could help me. I have a Cuisinart DLC-10 Plus food processor that I bought in the late 80's. This machine does NOT get a lot of use, maybe 10 times a year. I needed to use it during the holidays and I can't turn the bowl to take it off the base without hitting the handle hard with the heel of my hand. I don't have any idea why it's being so difficult. Any ideas?

It's the natujre of the beast. Mine does the same thing.

RE: What is wrong with my Cuisinart?

Me, too. It needs a hard bump. But it's been very serviceable for many years... more than 25, I'd guess. But it still works, and since I don't use it that often, I'd get a new one in a heartbeat if I used it more often.

Also you may want to heck out the Cooking forum, others may have more insoght over there, too.

My 1980's Cuisinarts are like yours. Mine were made in Japan--that vintage, after France and before China. The bowls are difficult to maneuver. When I replaced them after they cracked, the replacements were even more of a pain to work with. I replaced the entire bunch with a Magimix 4200. It's heavenly. Smooth and easy action on all functions.
