The bowl of my 14 c food processor will not release from the base - the cutting blade is in place

You will probably need to force the blade off the shaft somehow. If you over work them the blade can partly turn and lock onto the plastic shaft sleeve. A Kitchen Aid Authorised repairer will have figured out a way to remove it by now because it's been happening for years. Expect to replace the blade or the sleeve or both, once it's happened it's easier to happen a second time unless you replace parts.

How do I fix my Kitchenaid food processor? Motor hums but center shaft is stuck and won't turn.

Hi Eric, you are going to have to get the motor out and yes it will be because of the spilled liquid fusing/rusting the motor armature shaft into the bronze bush. Those motors are very expensive so worth a go to save it. You will have to get the plastic sleeve off that shaft first before you can get the motor out. Removal will destroy the sleeve. I drill a hole through the top of the sleeve, side to side leaving about 5mm of meat at the top. I shackle a chain through it and attach it to my bench leg and then accelerate the whole motor unit away in a straight line. The shaft needs to be pointing at the attachment point on the bench or it can slip from your hands creating more grief. It will only take 1 to 3 pulls, 1st one doesn't work do it harder, same with second pull and harder for the 3rd. The chain needs to have welded links or the chain will break. That is far the easiest removal method I have found, other methods could involve hacksawing it down one side being careful not to damage the metal shaft or melting a line down 1 side to split it open with a soldering iron. Once that is off then remove base, detach motor wires from pcb and remove the screws under the plastic caps on top of the top housing. Then it will be working away with levers and a spanner on the shaft and CRC, sweat and time. If you strike trouble after that email me Cheers Ross

Yes it is a motor shaft sleeve, it is a normal wear and tear part, try K/A or their service agent closest to you.

The motor post on my food processor has deteriorated to the point my blades will no longer turn (just sit there)Can I replace that part ?Or is it too hard for an amature fix it upper?Is that post even...

If the motor is running, the problem can be that the motor shaft is spinning inside the drive sleeve. Replace the sleeve. That is more common than a motor failure.
