check cover safety tab possible broken or faulty switch

KitchenAid... | Answered on Aug 29, 2017


Most likely it will be to do with the bowl or the lid. The safety mechanisms in both parts are likely culprits, they operate a micro switch just above the switch panel and hidden by the base of the bowl. Have just the bare motor plugged in and turned on with the run button depressed. Now with something plastic depress that small black button, the motor will likely start running. That proves motor is fine and you need to figure out which of the bowl or lid is the faulty part. The pusher needs to be in the lid tube before the motor will run in case you have forgotten.

if you say the motor is running but no blades moves in the cup.it means the shaft which is connected to the blades and the motors break down.

so i refer u to open it and check which shaft part is broken,or take it to the mechanic.

This may be caused by a number of factors. Most commonly, it is because the work bowl is being over-filled or too much pressure is being exerted on ingredients as they fall through the feed tube. Doing this may cause the disc to come off balance and start sheering plastic.

Call Kitchenaid Customer Service and provide them with this description. They will replace the unit free of charge, regardless of it's age or warranty. 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.

You have a bad sensor switch, when you put the bowl. Locate the sensor switch and replace it.

I am assuming that the unit is not getting any power whatsoever and this is not isolated solely to the pulse function not working.
