Question about KitchenAid Chefs Chopper KFC3100 3 Cups Food Processor
I can hear the locking of the blade, but once I put food in there, the blade raises a little and it makes the sound but it doesn't turn.
You will probably need to replace the sleeve on the motor shaft and the blade. If overloaded the shaft can spin inside the blade which wrecks the connection between them. Replacing both together is the correct solution.

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.

I posted about this somewhere else. Sounds simple but it worked for me. Give the spindle a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around and it will come loose.

put the mixing bowl up as much as possible. spray some wd40 into the groove between the attachement and the motor shaft. Wait for several minutes, then with a hammer and a piece of wood, give the bowl a good wack. With a few goes, it will gradually come off. I will be putting some butter inside the attachement from now on to keep it lubricated

Check the power source or the plug. It might be that the power source is not stable or check the plug if it has loosened or not. Or, check if your wife has something too hard processed inside esp. ice cubes (as she may need to pound it into smaller pieces). Also, let her try to adjust the mode.
Hope it helps.
