KitchenAid KFP750 Food Processor - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Hey I had the same problem. This may sound primitive and stupid but it worked. Give the stem a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around, it will come off.

Have you tried heating the sleeve with a torch and then sliding it on?

Hi, I had the same problem with my KitchenAid KFP740. The fix was the handle cap was loose. We all have a tendency to lift the unit out of the cabinet by the handle and it is heavy! The handle has a mechanism inside. The outside piece of the handle that holds it all inside gets loose making the pin at the bottom of the bowl not reach where it needs to be when you put the lid on. If you assemble the unit and squeeze the top of the handle after you put the lid on mine would work. A little gorilla glue and I was back in business!

repairing these items are not cost effective
you can take it to an appliance repair shop but parts if available will be close to the cost of a new unit

Soak overnight in a bucket of hot water, dish soap and 2 cups of bleach. By the morning the dirt will be gone and just need rinsing..

Take everything off and see if you can activate the motor with the safety switch. It is located at the front above the button panel normally covered by the working bowl. Mixer plugged in and turned on press that button switch in with something non metallic. If the motor goes then fault will be with the mechanisms that activate that switch in either the bowl or the lid. The lids are slightly more likely to be the problem than the bowl. Only a new part will properly solve it.

You may have to direct those enquiries at a Kitchen Aid service agent in your country. Here in Australia/New Zealand the bowl parts care not screwed together so it may be a bowl specific to your country.

It will be the blade holding the bowl on. The blade has become locked onto the motor shaft, in the end you are going to need to replace both. Take it to a K/A service agent.

The motor shaft sleeve and spindle will need to be replaced, once this jamming has happened it becomes ongoing if you do not replace those inexpensive parts. You need to wrap some webbing tightly around the spindle attach the other end to something very solid (like a fence post) and then accelerate the motor part rapidly away from the post. Hold onto the motor very firmly or it will land on the ground.The webbing tightens instantly when it runs out of slack and the spindle will come off. Then you need to remove the motor shaft sleeve in a similar manner, I drill a hole in the end and use a shackle and chain attached to the post for that one. I use the leg of my workshop bench, most folks will not have a solid heavy bench like mine. If that sounds too hard just take it to your local K/A service agent, they will have done it many times.

Replace the motor shaft sleeve AND multi purpose blade.

The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.

Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

I had the exact same problem. The red light came on when I hit the "On" button, but nothing happened. Then I noticed that when the lid is locked into place, a small pin in the handle goes into a small hole in the base. I took a wooden chopstick and poked it in this hole in the base, and the unit started running. I put the bowl and lid back on the unit and locked them into place, and this time the unit ran just fine. Yeah! I will remember this the next time my unit won't run even though I know that I've properly locked down the bowl and lid. Good luck!

There is no mechanism to lock the stem onto the base of the KFP750. It's just held on by gravity, so you're not missing anything simple!

It's possible that the soap dust got in there and glued in on. Take a blow dryer or very hot rag (use tongs!) to the stem to see if you can soften the soap, then pull up the stem.

All the adapter did was enable you to put 240VAC straight into your 110/120VAC coffee maker. You needed a step down transformer to drop the voltage from 240 to 120 VAC. This is not what you wanted to hear but you have damaged your coffee maker substantially by using the wrong voltage. Also the US version is designed for 60 HZ power vs AU 50 Hz power unless stated otherwise on the input power data plate.



Damage that has probably taken place:

1. Motor PN 8211837

2. Relay and Switch assembly PN: 8212011. .

3. Capacitor PN 8211608

Cost to repair... will be close to total replacement value due to shipping costs & customs of replacement parts



Thanks for choosing FixYa,

put the mixing bowl up as much as possible. spray some wd40 into the groove between the attachement and the motor shaft. Wait for several minutes, then with a hammer and a piece of wood, give the bowl a good wack. With a few goes, it will gradually come off. I will be putting some butter inside the attachement from now on to keep it lubricated

I just did this. I used a screwdriver and some needle-nose pliers to wedge and separate the shaft from the base. Once you've separated it by about 1/2 inch, it will come off easily. I simply used a mallet to install the new one.

Hi

Try and use a screwdriver and apply pressure equally to both sides of the bowl with the blade that's stuck, a push from under the bowl will do the trick. If this doesn't help then there maybe something stuck or jammed in between the shaft, soak the bowl in hot water for a while and try the above trick again. Please check the below links for exploded schematics of your food processor--

I posted about this somewhere else. Sounds simple but it worked for me. Give the spindle a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around and it will come loose.

I had this problem, I finally stuffed a tiny piece of tin foil into the hole the spring is supposed to go into to activate the machine. It works, but it is always on, even if the bowl is not locked into place so I have to be careful. I just store it unplugged.
