Mine is stuck too.....I have not been particularly happy with this Kitchenaid product and this may be enough to send me back to Cuisinart.

The closest I have seen recently - there is an auction for a complete KFP-700 with work bowl/lid intact on eBay right now:

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.

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:
