The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.
Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

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.

I just did this. I used a screwdriver and some needle-nose pliers to wedge and separate the shaft from the base. Once you've separated it by about 1/2 inch, it will come off easily. I simply used a mallet to install the new one.
