Pastry blade won't release

After processing a batch of dough, I can't get the pastry blade to come off. It still rotates and operates but it seems to be stuck on the spindle.

Re: pastry blade won't release

This is the kind of thing it would be very difficult to fix without being there in person. Do you still have the manual? It's possible there's some well hidden button or latch you have to hold in while you remove it. I tried to find a manual online, but was unsuccessful. I did see where you can purchase one - though I doubt you'll want to pay the $16 for it. But, just in case, here's the link:

Hi there, my dough blade won't come out from my fp2500mc wide-mouth food processor. Is there's anything that I can do. I've tried everything but it won't come out

i have had this same problem and unfortunately it seems that the disc stem gets so hot that it melts the top of the bowl to the blade. I finally got it out but the bowl was ruined as was the dough blade.

I can't get the food bowl off the processing unit. i have removed the cover as the manual says. I have left the blade in as the manual says. The picture looks as thought you should just lift it...

On page 8 of the manual that I will give you the link to: leave the cover in place on the container. Use the cover to help remove the container. Rotate the cover clockwise 180 degrees until the two tabs on the cover meet the two container tabs. Continue to turn the cover, but do not press down as you turn, using your thumb against the tabs until the container is released. Empty the remaining food from the container.

Magimix blade is stuck

You need to replace the spindle i'm afraid which gets worn after a time. There a UK company that sells replacements and tells you how to replace it. Not a big job though a bit tricky.

Am I missing a part

I overlooked this too. Set into the foam packing material is a stem made just for the shredding disk. It's about 4" long and also has a hex shaft. This hex is just slightly smaller than the hex on the other shaft the drives the blades. The dough hook - Remove the blade assembly and put the dough hook in its place.

We can`t disasemble it with the dough blade in, any tips?

All of the blades "lock" (rest in a groove) when rotated clockwise. This is so they'll stay put when in operation. When you take the bowl out with a blade in, you're moving the pair in a clockwise direction. So, you lock the blade in, thus locking the bowl down. Either remove the blade first by rotating it counter clockwise, then up or move the blade back 1/10th of a turn after rotating the bowl as far as it will go clockwise.

Motor fails to operate - very hit and miss

Make sure you are using the dough blade for dough instead of the regular blade - dough will cause the regular blade/assembly to gum up. This is actually a VERY high quality unit w/ a 20-year motor warranty. I would see if you get better results with the dough blade. Don't give up on it yet.
