Question about KitchenAid KFP740 Food Processor

Open Question

My KitchenAid food processor model # 4kfp750cro has not been working properly. I've never had a problem with it until recently. Sometimes when I press the on button nothing happens. The bowl/blade/lid are all on correctly, however, I readjust them and sometimes it takes 3 or 4 times before it will turn on.

SOURCE: food processor

I phoned the 800 number at Cuisinart (800-243-8540) and the person who answered the phone explained to me what to do: Fill the bowl with the hottest tap water I have (but not boiling) above the entire blade (including the part that fits over the shaft). He said to pulse a few times, then try to pull it off, but not to expect it to work right away. He said to do this until it comes off and that it could take 1/2 hour. I did what he said, and the blade came off after the first pulses. But also, the water was pouring out all over the counter--leaking between the bowl and the base (possibly because my old work bowl is also cracked, but I'm not sure).

I was told that the problem would happen again, and that I needed replace the blade and the shaft (which is cracked, as he guessed), both of which are available from Cuisinart.

SOURCE: I need a replacement bowl for the Oster 3212 Food Processor

I contacted the manufacturer and bought the bowl. This is frustrating as I had contacted their authorized service center and was told the bowl was unavailable.

SOURCE: Hamilton Beach food processor, model 70450, cracked bowl

You have a couple of choices here. The quickest and cheapest is to go to the hardware store, or a home depot and get a tube of one minute clear epoxy. This adhesive will repair the crack and since it is clear it will barely show. Plus it will dry in just one minute.

That said, yhou could also go to hamiltonbeach.com and get a new part.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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 need a manual for a Kitchenaid Food Processor Model #KFP600WH


The Kitchenaid website doesn't recognize the model number you gave. Could it possibly be KFP760? If so, then here's a link to the free downloadable manual.
