KitchenAid KFPM770 motor runs 3 seconds and stops


Determine first if it really is the motor. Does it only cut out if loaded or will it happen without any load? Remove all bowls and blades, plug it in and turn the power on and press the on button. With something plastic press the small white button that is in the middle above the switch panel and normally hidden by the bowl. This is the safety cutout switch avtivated by the bowl, lid and pusher being in position. Does the motor run while the button is depressed or does it again cut out after a short time but with button still depressed. If it doesn't cut out it's likely that wear in the complicated mechanisms in the lid and bowl handle are releasing the cutout switch with small vibrations of motor running. I figure out which one to replace by swapping out one of the 2 parts for a new one as I try to carry both parts in stock for that purpose.

Food Processor's light turns on but blades do not turn. Worked for about 5 minutes than stopped. It started to work again for about 10 seconds running sluggishly and sputtering, then stopped.


There will be a switch activated by correct engagement of the bowl, lid and pusher. Locate and activate that switch without the bowl on and see how it runs then. If it does then you need to figure out which of the bowl parts is not operating the switch properly. If activating that switch changes nothing then then you will need to be looking inside the motor housing, so far it's a place I haven't been on that model.

Closing the lid completely the processor does not work


Take everything off and see if you can activate the motor with the safety switch. It is located at the front above the button panel normally covered by the working bowl. Mixer plugged in and turned on press that button switch in with something non metallic. If the motor goes then fault will be with the mechanisms that activate that switch in either the bowl or the lid. The lids are slightly more likely to be the problem than the bowl. Only a new part will properly solve it.

I have a small Cuisinart food processor and I cannot figure out how to turn it on. It has two levers low and high. I have it plugged in and the lid on? Please help. Fiona Slattery 858-752-8591


Hi,

Your PowerBlend Duet™ comes with a food processor button. This button is the perfect speed for all your food processing tasks. Always use this speed when using the food processor. You may also use the Pulse button with this function for pulse-chopping.
To use your food processor, make sure that the bowl is assembled properly and the blade or slicing/shredding disc and the cover are locked into place.
When you use the control panel, the LED will light next to each button you press.
Press the On button. For continuous operation, press the Food Processor button. Motor will start if you have followed assembly instructions.
To turn motor off, press the Food Processor button again or the Off button.
For on/off operation, called pulse-chopping or pulsing, press the On button, press the Pulse button, and then press and release the
Food Processor button the desired number of times. Motor runs as long as you hold the Food Processor button down. The motor stops when you release control switch. Try it a few times.
You control the duration and frequency of pulses by the length of time you hold the Food Processor button down and the rate at which you press it. Pulses should be short bursts. Allow enough time between pulses to let food in work bowl fall to bottom.
Always use the Food Processor button for pulse/chopping. Never turn cover back and forth to start and stop processor.

My kitchenaid processor is not working


The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. I am thinking this is an issue of assembly because the light is on, so the unit is definitely getting power.

Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.

I have a kitchen aid food processor, it is on, but motor doess no


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.
