The bowl will not unlock

I can take the lid off the bowl but the bowl is will not unlock. It even turns on without the lid. It always seems to stick but with a strong tug does come off.

With that type of bowl on closing the lid the switch open and on opening the switch close.the switch will not unlock because the switch itself is sticking or defected try cleaning the switch with some contact cleaner.if that does not work then you will have to take it to a small appliance tech for repairs.if there is no appliance tech i a sorry to tell you but you will have to settle for a new one.good luck.

I have a kitchen aid food processor kfpm775, I have had endless problems. I have a new bowl and lid,it worked once.It has been assembled properly and done the check on the motor, which seems fine.


To work properly the bowl needs to first be in the correct place, on model 770 which we have here it is handle in the middle at the front. Then the lid goes on, it's obvious which way is correct with that part and then the pusher must be in the tube to activate the safety cut off switch. It is very rarely the cutoff switch itself which is inside the motor housing. If you look at the motor unit without the bowl on you can see right in the middle up by the top of the housing a hole with white plastic inside it. That's the safety switch that all the levers in the bowl & lid activate. If you turn the unit on (no bowl) and push the run switch down then activate that safety switch be depressing it in with something plastic the motor should run. That will prove to you at least that it's not the motor. That model is close to end of life now, bowls & lids are scarce and the general purpose blade is finished.

You need to replace either the bowl or the lid. Either the lid is not pushing the bowl mechanisms far enough or there is too much lost movement in the bowl part.

I can't figure out how to use it.. I just want to make a smoothie!


You can get a manual at WWW. euro-pro.com.

In order to use the blender the food processor bowl and lid must be LOCKED in place. Turn the lid on processor until it's locked. Then you are ready to use the blender. Select desired speed or pulse.

In order to use the processor, remove the blender and place the gray lid in its place. It should be locked. The lid keeps the blender shaft from spinning and allows the shaft on the processor to turn.

To remove the processor bowl, gently lift up on the lid to unlock it and then turn it away from processor. Bowl lifts off. That's it! Enjoy!

Hope I have been of some help to you.

Euro-Pro EP91 Quad-Blade 6 Won't Start


My wife was given this unit from an elderly gentleman that was done trying to make it work.
I just fixed the same problem as above. Note - I do not have a manual for this unit.
True above about the bowl cover being locked in position but found the key to make it work is also the white lid to the left of the bowl cover. I was locking and unlocking this white lid with no results. Then I removed the bowl cover and found the white lid cover was loose and easily removed this white lid to inspect inside ( why this cover removes I have no clue).
Anyway I was able to snap the white cover firmly on and turn counter clockwise to lock in place ( six o’clock position), then after putting the bowl cover back on and snapping in place it works.
Note - I do not need to turn the white lid cover to install or remove the clear bowl cover, this could be because it looks like one of the clear tabs might be broken on the locking area of the clear bowl cover. If you have two tabs the same shape on the bowl cover you may need twist the white lid clockwise to install and remove the bowl cover and counter clockwise to lock in place so the unit works, but now that my white lid is snapped firmly in place it hardly moves with the force of both hands trying to turn it.
Hope this helps someone.
Good Luck !
