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.

How do I remove my cracked support bearing on my Kitchenaid food processor 1333?+


Do you mean the bearing on the motor shaft within that circular plastic ring that moves up and down when moving the slicing thickness lever? If yes then a couple of screwdrivers under it one on each side to lever it up. At the same time it will force the black shaft sleeve up and off the motor shaft.

How do I fix my Kitchenaid food processor? Motor hums but center shaft is stuck and won't turn.


Hi Eric, you are going to have to get the motor out and yes it will be because of the spilled liquid fusing/rusting the motor armature shaft into the bronze bush. Those motors are very expensive so worth a go to save it. You will have to get the plastic sleeve off that shaft first before you can get the motor out. Removal will destroy the sleeve. I drill a hole through the top of the sleeve, side to side leaving about 5mm of meat at the top. I shackle a chain through it and attach it to my bench leg and then accelerate the whole motor unit away in a straight line. The shaft needs to be pointing at the attachment point on the bench or it can slip from your hands creating more grief. It will only take 1 to 3 pulls, 1st one doesn't work do it harder, same with second pull and harder for the 3rd. The chain needs to have welded links or the chain will break. That is far the easiest removal method I have found, other methods could involve hacksawing it down one side being careful not to damage the metal shaft or melting a line down 1 side to split it open with a soldering iron. Once that is off then remove base, detach motor wires from pcb and remove the screws under the plastic caps on top of the top housing. Then it will be working away with levers and a spanner on the shaft and CRC, sweat and time. If you strike trouble after that email me

My food processor blade keeps popping up (loose) when I put food into it.


You will probably need to replace the sleeve on the motor shaft and the blade. If overloaded the shaft can spin inside the blade which wrecks the connection between them. Replacing both together is the correct solution.

Spindle jammed on the stem


The motor shaft sleeve and spindle will need to be replaced, once this jamming has happened it becomes ongoing if you do not replace those inexpensive parts. You need to wrap some webbing tightly around the spindle attach the other end to something very solid (like a fence post) and then accelerate the motor part rapidly away from the post. Hold onto the motor very firmly or it will land on the ground.The webbing tightens instantly when it runs out of slack and the spindle will come off. Then you need to remove the motor shaft sleeve in a similar manner, I drill a hole in the end and use a shackle and chain attached to the post for that one. I use the leg of my workshop bench, most folks will not have a solid heavy bench like mine. If that sounds too hard just take it to your local K/A service agent, they will have done it many times.

Spindle shaft on KFP600AC has stripped . Have replacement but cannot remove old one. we are seniors and not too st.rong physically .! Any suggestions. Thank you in anticipation. Lysbeth


The shaft is spinning inside the sleeve. So is should not be hard to remove. With a DLC-7SP, I grabbed the spindle with some pliers, channel locks might do well and put a handle of a screwdriver between the pliers and the top deck and pried. Second attempt and it pulled up easily. Place the screwdriver beside one of the top deck screw covers to transfer force directly to the motor. Otherwise top deck would probably break.

The spindle (middle thingie) is broken


I don't know about the little lip you're referring to, but the central spindle that comes up from the base of our KitchenAid 12 cups food processor KFP750WH0 splintered and broke while we were using it. We ordered a replacement motor sleeve shaft part number KA8211849 from the Gourmet Depot for $4.95 plus $3.50 s/h. Removing the broken plastic sleeve shaft was the difficulty; it isn't glued or screwed on but somehow it didn't want to be pulled, pried, or cut off. With the help of our neighbor fix-it man and all four of us working at it with screwdrivers, we got the old broken part up and off. Pushing the new one onto the metal motor shaft was easy, and it was fixed!
