SOURCE: I have a kitchen aid food processor, it is on, but motor doess no

This sounds like an issue relating with the assembly of the machine. The motor is definitely getting power if the indicator is lit. However, Kitchenaid food processors are designed (as a safety feature) to remain unengaged if the unit is not assembled in such a way. Here is the proper assembly:

Please disassemble the unit. This means: removing the blade, removing the work bowl, the work bowl cover, and unplugging the unit.

Starting with the work bowl: place the handle at the 9 o'clock position, which is out to the left. Rotate downward to the 6 o'clock position until it locks in, centered over the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid.

Depending on which food processor you have, you may need the feed tube pusher depressed at least half way down the feed tube.

Plug in the unit. The blade does not have be installed for unit it to work at this point, assuming everything is assembled properly and the motor is functioning. The motor should now be working.

SOURCE: My 12 cup kitchen aid food processor dough blade

Dough is normally water soluble. Try soaking it in water for a several days up to a week. Then try prying it loose.

The bowl of my 14 c food processor will not release from the base - the cutting blade is in place


You will probably need to force the blade off the shaft somehow. If you over work them the blade can partly turn and lock onto the plastic shaft sleeve. A Kitchen Aid Authorised repairer will have figured out a way to remove it by now because it's been happening for years. Expect to replace the blade or the sleeve or both, once it's happened it's easier to happen a second time unless you replace parts.

How can I get kitchen aid blade out that is stuck


The blade will be stuck on the shaft and both will be damaged and require replacement. With that knowledge you now understand that drilling a hole sideways through the blade cap isn't wrecking anything you are going to use again. You can then get something into the hole for leverage. Here in NZ blades are under $20 and motor shaft sleeve is about $5. If you don't replace the parts it will happen again.

Kitchen aid food processors 's chopping blade gets stuck . Very hard to take it out


The shaft sleeve (the one on the motor shaft) is likely damaged. The correct solution is a new shaft sleeve and chopping blade. If you do not replace them both together the one you do not replace will damage the other one again.

Just because they cannot help you for free does not mean that there is no help at all. Ask them who is your local K/A service agent and see what he has to say.
