I've not seen a bowl stuck on one of those unless the chopping blade is jammed on the shaft and preventing the bowl lifting up. Or is the chef bowl a smaller bowl that fits inside the main bowl?

We had the same problem! I was bending a 18" pry bar and couldn't move it! Finally I tapped the spindle LIGHTLY and it broke loose and have had no more problems. I even bought $80 worth of replacement parts and did'nt use them. The serivce center sold me the parts but the Tech refused to talk me thru installing them.

Is the bowl and lid locked into place correctly. The unit wont function if they aren't.

The work bowl lid has a feed tube on it, and the unit should have also come with a "feed tube pusher," a plastic piece to help depress food through the feed tube itself.

With a food processor, you will want to assemble the unit first, engage, and then add ingredients. This will ensure the ingredients fall through the blade and/or disc to be processed thoroughly.

I have the 11 cup Kitchenaid food processor and did the same thing this weekend. It took a while but finally figured out how it went back together. Hopefully the pictures help. I know it's difficult to see since the pieces are all black. Good luck!

Store it with the lid upside down on top of the bowl

Make sure you have the bowl, lid and sometimes the pusher assembled correctly. If everything is not correct it will not activate the safety switch to allow it to start up.

take it back and get a warranty replacement unit
reading the user manual may be a help

Possibly something about either the lid or the bowl has become deformed. Very likely you will need to replace one or the other.

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.

The solution is 90% going to be replace the lid, or replace the bowl or if you are very unlucky replace both. A proper KitchenAid service agent should have both parts on the shelf and will be able to try a new one of either to see where the fault lies. I think over the years I've replaced more lids than I have bowls.

Read the handbook and make certain you are assembling the bowl, lid and pusher correctly, they can all play a part in activating the safety mechanisms that put the appliance in the mode that will allow it to be started.

Without step-down transformers you are out of luck. I am sorry. I know the transformers are ugly but they are cheaper than replacing your food processor and espresso machine. One thing you could do is to contact Kitchen Aid and ask them if the motor can be wired for 240V. If not, ask them if you can purchase the 240V motor for your processor and replace it directly. As for the espresso machine, no idea...sorry.

food processors have interlocks between the bowl, the top and the base. Inspect to see that those are all making. When you lock the bowl to the base and the top to the bowl you should hear some clicks and see some interlock mechanisms line up at the back of the bowl.

I don't see anything other than hot water and brute force doing anything to help. Probably a two person job and make sure you turn it the right way. Be prepared for something to be broken or damaged.
