Question about KitchenAid Food Processors
We were trying to use the processor, attached the bowl properly but it was not turning on (no pulse or speeds would work). I actually took the bowl off, pushed on the switch and motor worked. The black plastic on the handle that pushes the motor switch seemed to be locked in place, even after putting the top on properly. I took apart the handle just to see what was going on - there are some springs that on a lever that pushes out some plastic that turns on the motor. The problem is as I was looking at the mechanism the piece that has two springs on it fell off and the springs came off before I had chance to look at their position. Can some guide me as to the spring placement on that piece? I think the mechanism was simple stuck, and I can fix this by repositioning the springs and parts properly, but I haven't been able to find anything on a parts listing for this..

With the food processor I have it will not allow you to remove the bowl unless the top is off.Try take the top off or putting it on.Then remove it from the processor.

I had this problem, I finally stuffed a tiny piece of tin foil into the hole the spring is supposed to go into to activate the machine. It works, but it is always on, even if the bowl is not locked into place so I have to be careful. I just store it unplugged.
