    Thank you so much for your response!! I unplugged it and took out the pusher, but I still cannot get the cover off!!

    I am so grateful for your help! I am seriously ready to smash the goddam thing with a hammer! It's not mine though, so I won't be doing that. I will try again but I am really not sure... I can't even see where the twists are supposed to happen! I used a really strong knife to try to pry it open and I had a teeny bit of success so I don't think there is any kind of vacuum seal. What I really don't understand is the connector pole that goes from below the handle into the base which is what keeps the whole food bowl from turning. But I can't even get the top off which I guess I have to do before the bowl will turn. Sincerely grateful, Petrina

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.

    This only happens once every so often, but it's possible that the last food processing session created a vacuum seal. The cover is designed so that it only twists off in the counterclockwise direction. If this fails, there is most likely a vacuum seal - place a small sandwich bag or ziploc bag full of ice on top of the cover for about 10 minutes. The bag of ice will allow the air to compress, and it will cause a minor but helpful contraction in the work bowl cover plastic. After 10 minutes, twist the cover off in the clockwise direction, and it should come off.
