Question about KitchenAid KFP740 Food Processor
I have the unit assembled as in the past times I have used it. The on button lights up and so does the pulse light, but then nothing happens. There is power, but the stem does not turn. I have only used this unit about twelve times in the past year and have not had a problem.
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.
