Cuisinart Missing Serial Number - moved from Home Cooking board
I have a 6 month old 14-cup Cuisinart Food Processor with a broken cover. It was a wedding gift purchased through Crate and Barrel. I called Cuisinart up to request a replacement cover and, when they asked for the serial number from the bottom of my machine, I discovered that I don't have one. There is nothing etched onto the bottom of the machine. There is a sticker with a five digit code, but they said that number cannot be a serial number for a food processor.
I don't want to pay $40 ($32 plus $8 shipping) for a new cover.
Going through my files, I found a note I jotted to myself: Cuisinart CHH 80117. It's almost definitely a code related to registering the FP. However, before I call them up and pretend to be reading this code from the bottom of my machine, I'd like to make it's actually a serial number for a FP, if that makes sense.
Can someone with a 14 cup Cuisinart FP, model number DFP-14BCN look at their serial number and let me know if it resembles 80117?
Or--is anyone else missing a serial number?
Thank you so much.
