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.

Take it in and get it fixed, a Kitchen Aid service person will have done plenty. Once you get it off that's not the end of it, there will be damage that will only cause it to happen again. New motor shaft sleeve and the piece that's stuck. Here in NZ they are not worth much so it's never an expensive job to do it properly.

Buy a new lid.

You just have to force it out, there is no magic. Sit down, put the lid between your knees and thump it out with the handle end of a hammer.

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.

Does the actuator push down far enough to catch the button at the bottom? I repaired one simply by adding a vinyl screw cover to the top of the button so it was tall enough to be reached by the actuator.

Check the power source or the plug. It might be that the power source is not stable or check the plug if it has loosened or not. Or, check if your wife has something too hard processed inside esp. ice cubes (as she may need to pound it into smaller pieces). Also, let her try to adjust the mode.
Hope it helps.

HI.When the problem is related to themovement of one of its parts,the usual problem is in the motor.Have you tried to disassemble parts and try to look at the motor.It is not advisable to keep the motor running while the cover is open however for the purpose of observing what's the motors behavior while the system is running.Can you check the gears of the motor and check if the motors terminal gets the same amount if voltage reqiured.

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

The unit has been retired, but Kitchenaid may still parts available. I would recommend to call Kitchenaid Customer Service and speak with their parts department. Their toll-free telephone number is:

The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. I am thinking this is an issue of assembly because the light is on, so the unit is definitely getting power.

Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.
