Question about KitchenAid KFP750 Food Processor

1 Answer

The spindle (middle thingie) is broken

The spindle in the middle of the machine (the part that always stays there even when the bowl is off) is broken. The little "lip" that the bowl hooks onto to lock it has broken off. I'd like to replace it at home (it's no longer under warranty, of course!)...is that even possible??? Is there a schematic somewhere??

Thanks so much!!!

I don't know about the little lip you're referring to, but the central spindle that comes up from the base of our KitchenAid 12 cups food processor KFP750WH0 splintered and broke while we were using it. We ordered a replacement motor sleeve shaft part number KA8211849 from the Gourmet Depot for $4.95 plus $3.50 s/h. Removing the broken plastic sleeve shaft was the difficulty; it isn't glued or screwed on but somehow it didn't want to be pulled, pried, or cut off. With the help of our neighbor fix-it man and all four of us working at it with screwdrivers, we got the old broken part up and off. Pushing the new one onto the metal motor shaft was easy, and it was fixed!

    Thanks so much! I had the exact same experience and searched high and low for replacement part information (including a fruitless call to Kitchenaid) until I found your post. I ordered the part from Gourmet Depot was able to pry off the plastic sleeve with a a screwdriver, time and lots of patience. The new sleeve fits like a glove and I am back in business.

    Ditto! Had the same issue...what a task getting the old one off. I finally just cut it down the side and took it off. Whew!

    Amazon has the KitchenAid part# 8211849 Motor Shaft Sleeve

    Price: $2.99

I used the shredding blade and now can't get the inside spindle to pop off or the bowl. It will still work if I put the blade in and turn it on. How can I get the spindle and bowl loose?


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.

My mini cuisinart stopped working


Place the gearbox on top of the blender/food processor
Place the work bowl over the spindle, with the handle facing the front of the machine - make sure the tabs lock into place.
Place the stem adapter on top of the spindle, then the blade.
Place the lid on top of the bowl, with the feed tube facing the back of the food processor. Then the pusher into the feed tube.

Cannot get food bowl off the Oskar food processor


My Oskar has two locking teeth on the bottom of the bowl. One at the 3 o'clock position and one at the 9 o'clock position. Grabbing the bowl at the bottom with one hand (using thumb and one finger), I twist clockwise (to the right) about 1/4 inch and the bowl unlocks and lifts off directly. (my unit's spindle doesn't have anything to do with locking the bowl. My unit must be 15 to 20 years old btw)

Bowl handle doesn't make connection


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.
