Question about KitchenAid KFP750 Food Processor

Bowl handle doesn't make connection

It appears that the spring is sprung on the needle in the handle that makes the connection to turn on the processor. I wonder if I can take the handle of the bowl apart to reset that spring?

    After replacing the first bowl - I have the same problem with the second bowl - both occurred after I washed the bowl. I assume that water resets something in the handle. Very annoying because there is no way to wash the bowl well without putting it in water.

I had this problem, I finally stuffed a tiny piece of tin foil into the hole the spring is supposed to go into to activate the machine. It works, but it is always on, even if the bowl is not locked into place so I have to be careful. I just store it unplugged.

Look for a machine with the same style / bowl size as yours if your specific machine is not available. You can even download more than one to get additional recipes!

The main important thing if you have an older machine is to make sure when putting it together that the feed tube from the top aligns with the part of the bowl with the spring, so the button on the base gets depressed correctly. For some, the spring mechanism is on the front with the handle, for some it is opposite the handle.

If you put the top on backwards it won't work correctly, and you might break the catch when trying to get it apart... either on the lid, or the bowl, or both. It can be an expensive mistake.

The Cuisinart 7 cup food processor will not start?


Check out this options Remove the work bowl completely. Turn the machine on and use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on the base of the Food processor. If the motor doesn't spin, it needs repair. If there is spinning:Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked position. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work. This will help. good luck.

How does the slide lock on the Cuisinard Custom 11 Food Process go back on?


The main important thing if you have an older style machine is to make sure when putting it together that the feed tube from the top aligns with the part of the bowl with the spring, so the button on the base gets depressed correctly. For some, the spring mechanism is on the front with the handle, for some it is opposite the handle... check the base for the tiny button to double check.

If you put the top on backwards it won't work (at least not correctly) -- but what's worse is that you are likely to break the locking mechanism when trying to get it apart... either on the lid, or the bowl, or both. It can be an expensive mistake.

Luckily, bowls and lids are available from Cuisinart... and many times the same bowl/lid was used for different machine numbers (the various models are about the base, not the bowls/lids/blades/etc.)

How do I remove the cover from the bowl on the EV-11PC9?


The bowl cover needs to be turned (rotated) clockwise a small amount to release the catches on the bowl.
Easiest way is to grasp the bowl handle and press to the left with your thumb on the extension of the cover that goes over the top of the handle.
Remember that the pusher MUST be removed from the cover to do this because of the interlock that goes down through both the cover and the bowl handle.

I have a Moulinex Ovatio 2 food processor. it looks as though the handle to the processing bowl can be removed...but I just cant work out how! It needs cleaning as the design of the handle lets water and...


It is safe to remove the white part - I just did it. Lever it off with a knife at the bottom then two clear plastic parts and the spring can be removed. Just don't lose the spring!

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.

Appears to be locked but won't turn on


Instructions only apply to Cuisinart DLC-2011 series:

Remove the work bowl and all other parts completely from base.
Plug the base in, and turn it on.
Use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base.
If you hear a spinning or other noise, the motor is still good.

Now that you have verified that the motor is good:
Put each work bowl piece on one at a time - if you don't out it on one at a time, it will not lock in properly.
Put work bowl on with work bowl handle facing front, make sure bowl locks.
Put lid on with lid lined up with work bowl handle.
Put pusher sleeve into lid's feed tube, with metal element facing the front of the food processor.

You should now be good to go.
