Question about KitchenAid Food Processors
I have a kitchen aid food processor, barely used, tried to blend some soup and the motor/blade won't start turning.
The power light is on, but pulse and on does not seem to turn the blades.
Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?
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.

My processor is doing the same thing what I did was unlock the safety latch a wee bit and it worked.

The above solution was helpful. I found mine worked once I made sure it was installed correctly AND pushed the blade down, hard.
