Blended creamed squash for squash soup. SOme of the squash is caught in the white spicket thingy where the coiled spring is in the Work Bowl. I've tried everything to get it out. It hasn't dried, since I soaked it when I couldnt get it out.

It usually goes something like this, with minor variations depending on model number:1.Remove the work bowl completely from the base 2.Plug the food processor in and turn it on 3.Use a pen to depress the dark grey/black button on the base – if it spins, proceed 4.Put the work bowl on the base with the handle facing the front of the food processor – slide the work bowl until it locks - the white tabs show in the openings on the bottom of either side of the work bowl 5.Place the lid on the work bowl with the tab slightly left of the center of the work bowl handle – slide the lid counterclockwise until it won’t slide any more 6.Place the pusher sleeve in the feeder tube of the lid with the lock facing the front of the food processor (may vary depending on model) 7.Slide the lock to the right into the locked position The food processor should now work.This will help.Good luck.
I am guessing that something is not seated properly. Make sure the bowl clicks when turned...drops the pin in. Make sure the top is ("clicked in") locked. If you poured something out of the bowl and went to re-use it, make sure the blade is seated properly; make sure there is no food caught under the blade hindering the blade to be seated. Everything must be locked in correctly to operate safely.
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.
Most recent food processors have safety features that make it difficult to remove the work bowl. For the Kitchen-Aid RRKFP650, remove the work bowl pusher and cover first. Then you have to give the work bowl a good tug in the clockwise direction - don't be afraid of breaking the work bowl - it can take a little bit of force. If it is still sticking, you can apply a small amount of distilled white vinegar with a Q-Tip to the area between the base and workbowl - in most cases, you won't have to do this.
Is the cover assembly engaged and locked into place? If you can't lock the cover into place, it's possible that part of the plastic on the cover assembly is broken and not engaging the white rod inside the bowl. Determine which part is at fault (either the bowl or the cover assembly) and replace it.

The food processor should now work

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 !
