    The blade will not drop to the bottom of the bowl in mine, so the motor will not activate.

The Kitchenaid food choppers 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 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.

    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.

    The blade will simply mount onto the shaft. Turn it clockwise to seat it fully.

My food processor blade keeps popping up (loose) when I put food into it.


You will probably need to replace the sleeve on the motor shaft and the blade. If overloaded the shaft can spin inside the blade which wrecks the connection between them. Replacing both together is the correct solution.

I cannot remove the blade from my 3 cup chef chopper


The manufacturer's website does not provide any information that would suggest that there is a release or a particular technique for removing.

If you were forced to leave in place after using it is possible that food residue has dried and is contributing to the problem. Suggest you try adding some warm soapy water to the bowl and let soak for 10 - 15 minutes.

Pour off the soapy water and then while wearing a protective glove see if you are able to remove the blade with some careful wiggling and twisting.

The following resources may be useful references in the future.
