Kitchen aid model kfp 7 The wide slicer disk cut into the top of the cover leaving pieces of plastic in the sliced potatoes. What would cause this to happen.

This may be caused by a number of factors. Most commonly, it is because the work bowl is being over-filled or too much pressure is being exerted on ingredients as they fall through the feed tube. Doing this may cause the disc to come off balance and start sheering plastic.

Call Kitchenaid Customer Service and provide them with this description. They will replace the unit free of charge, regardless of it's age or warranty. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Hi Janne,

I bought a DCL 8M about 20 years ago and still have the original manual. Mashing potatoes is one of the few tasks that the manual discouraged. The potatoes turn into glue. I tried mashing potatoes with the flat blade and extra liquid. It still tasted awful. I do puree potato soup in batches, First I mash all the solids (potatoes and leek or potato and tomatoes), then add the liquid. For some reason, pureeing the soup works well.

I am sorry I could not be more helpful.
