Question about Food Processors
Can't remove blade from Kitchenaide food processor, So, the processor seems jammed and won't spin.
my friend if you had not removed that blade for a while it will certainly stuck due to the moisture that forms on the shaft of the blade holder causing it to have corosion you will have to carry that item to be removed by a qualified tech by you doing it your self could cause damage,which could cost you more.good luck

SOURCE: stuck dough blade
On the DLC 7 Pro cuisinart the blade was removed by removing
the plastic bottom. Make sure the unit is unplugged. Remove the four rubber pads on the bottom. This was the hardest part because the pads are glued so securely that the inner rubber surface tears as it's removed. I used two flat blade screwdrivers and worked carefully, back and forth. Using a #2 philips, remove the four screws. Place the unit on its side and while inserting a screwdriver between a spoke and the motor frame gently turn the blade counter clockwise. Be careful not to put pressure against the cooling fins. Very little pressure was needed and the blade came right out. I might have been able to hold the shaft from turning without removing the bottom, by going through the vent slots in the bottom, but I was concerned with cracking the plastic. To replace the rubber pads I matched the design of the torn rubber pad with the shape (design) of the surface glued rubber and used thin two-sided tape.

This sounds like an issue relating with the assembly of the machine. The motor is definitely getting power if the indicator is lit. However, Kitchenaid food processors are designed (as a safety feature) to remain unengaged if the unit is not assembled in such a way. Here is the proper assembly:
Please disassemble the unit. This means: removing the blade, removing the work bowl, the work bowl cover, and unplugging the unit.
Starting with the work bowl: place the handle at the 9 o'clock position, which is out to the left. Rotate downward to the 6 o'clock position until it locks in, centered over the button panel.
Repeat the process with the work bowl lid.
Depending on which food processor you have, you may need the feed tube pusher depressed at least half way down the feed tube.
Plug in the unit. The blade does not have be installed for unit it to work at this point, assuming everything is assembled properly and the motor is functioning. The motor should now be working.
