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.

Very frustrated with kitchenaid food processor - using any slicing disk only the first batch of food works, when you put in the 2nd batch nothing happens


Mine is older and works fine once I realized bowl has to be snapped into place before the cover and then the cover has to be locked in. This activates a small button at the base of the bowl that activates a safety switch.

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.

When i press pulse the "on" light is orange but nothing happens


If you are testing it without the bowl in place and the lid locked in place it will not work. It is a safety feature that I discovered when I was putting mine together. Make sure the bowl clicks into place on the machine with the handle in the front and then click the lid in with pusher portion in the front. Make sure that both click into place or it will not work .

Need to clean inside of handle on KitchenAid food processor


The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.

Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

KitchenAid Food Processor 770 won't run


I am assuming the unit is getting power. The "power" LED should be lit up on the front of the unit.

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. 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.

If this has not resolve the issue, please ensure the outlet is receiving power.

If the unit is still not functioning, take a close look at the bottom of the work bowl where it meets to the motor base. The work bowl, when locked in, depressed a gray plastic peg. This is the safety mechanism. You may trying depressing this peg on your own with a pencil. If this activates the motor, this may indicate your work bowl is no longer seating correctly.

Also check the work bowl handle to make sure nothing is cracked. There is a plastic assembly in the handle that acts as a second safety feature.

If either of these things seems to be the culprit, I would suggest seeking a new work bowl or work bowl lid to correct the 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.

I feel so stupid i can't figure out how to get the food out of my rrkfp650 kitchenaid mixer! help my kale is getting stale. why doesn't it just slide off or twist off?


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.

I have a kitchenaid kfpw760 food processor. I assembled it as per manual then added ingredients to work bowl, but...my ingredients are below the blade in the bowl and the blade doesn't contact the...


The work bowl lid has a feed tube on it, and the unit should have also come with a "feed tube pusher," a plastic piece to help depress food through the feed tube itself.

With a food processor, you will want to assemble the unit first, engage, and then add ingredients. This will ensure the ingredients fall through the blade and/or disc to be processed thoroughly.
