Question about KitchenAid Food Processors

2 Answers

Kitchenaid food processor KFP1642MS This model requires the bowl, lid and plunger to be installed before it works. With all items installed this processor has been intermittent and getting worse.

Currently, it is closer to plane won't work but then it will suddenly operate. You can remove only the lid without removing the bowl and we are back to not working.

Hello, Michael -

I see that your model of KitchenAid food processor has a 5-year warranty:
https://www.kitchenaid.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10552&langId=-1&storeId=10202
Click or tap on the link for the warranty on that page.

If you have owned the food processor for less than 5 years and still have the sales receipt, you may be eligible for replacement part or replacement of the entire food processor. Read the 2-page warranty information in full.

I hope you have already referred to the Owner's Manual for your food processor, page 29, the Troubleshooting section. If you do not have the manual, you can find the link for it on the webpage with the link given above.

Best wishes.

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.

SOURCE: my kitchenaid processor is not working

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.

SOURCE: I am unable to remove the disc stem

My disc stem got stuck. I added boiling water to the bowl and left it a few minutes. After some jiggling of the stem it came off.

SOURCE: My kitchenaid food processor won't work

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.

Kitchen aide chefs chopper Model KFC3100ER2 does not always turn on when pulse button is pressed


You need to replace either the bowl or the lid. Either the lid is not pushing the bowl mechanisms far enough or there is too much lost movement in the bowl part.

Cannot turn the lid on to kitchenaid food processor


It sounds like you need a new working bowl. It is not uncommon for that safety switch mechanism to fail inside the handle.

Just stopped working


Most often when that model processor stops working it is associated with the mechanisms in the lid and bowl that activate the safety switch that prevents you turning it on when the bowl & lid is not on correctly. The mechanisms are not repairable, the fix is to replace the bowl or the lid or both. A proper KitchenAid service agent should have both in stock, take your complete machine in so that the faulty part can be identified.

KitchenAid Food Processor 770 won't run


I am assuming the unit is getting power. The "power" LED should be lit up on the front of the unit.

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. 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.

If this has not resolve the issue, please ensure the outlet is receiving power.

If the unit is still not functioning, take a close look at the bottom of the work bowl where it meets to the motor base. The work bowl, when locked in, depressed a gray plastic peg. This is the safety mechanism. You may trying depressing this peg on your own with a pencil. If this activates the motor, this may indicate your work bowl is no longer seating correctly.

Also check the work bowl handle to make sure nothing is cracked. There is a plastic assembly in the handle that acts as a second safety feature.

If either of these things seems to be the culprit, I would suggest seeking a new work bowl or work bowl lid to correct the issue.

I have a kitchenaid food processor and the bowl is tightly set on the right side of center. I can't straighten it out and when I try to move it, it sounds like I'm cracking plastic. It won't run! Any...


Items required:
-dishwasher
-detergent
-lemonade or other citric liquid
-poochy
-skillz

Step 1:
gently position poochy around tube in center of bowl. Fill halfway with lemonade or other citric liquid.

Step 2: Put lid of processor on and put entire unit in dishwasher. Turn on power scrub cycle.
The dishwashing cycle will help the citric acid to activate the poochy.

Step 3: Use skillz to wriggle the bowl off the processor. Empty out poochy remains.
Congratulations! YOU'VE GOT SKILLZ!
