Question about KitchenAid KFP720 7 Cups Food Processor

Open Question

My Kitchenaid food processor overheated. It still works but the on button doesn't stay on unless pressed.

My Kitchenaid food processor overheated and shut off on its own. Now the on button behaves exactly like the pulse button. The machine only runs while I'm holding the button. Is there a reset technique that I'm missing somewhere? The manual only says to unplug it and leave it for 30 minutes. It's been a few days and it's still not back to normal.

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: Need to clean inside of handle on KitchenAid food processor

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.

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.

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.

I have a kitchenaid foodprocessor 5KFPM 771 which is not working. When it's plugged in the on button will lit, but there's no turning of the blades. I reassembled it a couple of times but it's...


food processors have interlocks between the bowl, the top and the base. Inspect to see that those are all making. When you lock the bowl to the base and the top to the bowl you should hear some clicks and see some interlock mechanisms line up at the back of the bowl.
