Question about KitchenAid KFC3100 Chef's Chopper Food Processor

Open Question

A tab broke off of the lid to my KitchenAid food chopper, so I ordered a replacement cover-bowl (lid) for my model KFC3100BU. (It is part # 8211775). Everything is the same on the replacement lid, except for the tabs that allow you to activate the appliance. The tabs are so different, (there's 2 on each side and my original had 1 on each side) that the lid won't lock and so I cannot use the chopper. I am positive that I was sent the correct replacement part as I have check several different sources. I just don't know why the lid has been "improved" since I bought my chopper a few years ago so that the tabs don't fit into the grooves on the bowl. Has anyone else encountered this problem, or know how to fix it? Because I feel like breaking off the extra tab that is preventing the lid from working.

SOURCE: I am trying to install

Those tabs may have been pushed in a little bit while packaged and shipped. Try bending them out enough to clear the edge of the filter.. then once it's in place..bend them back to lock the filter in place.. Hope that helps

Hi. the HP Photosmart 2610 system software has become corrupt and you will have to reinstall the software that was shipped with this unit. Once you reinstall all the software, the system will work again with no problems. This will happen sometimes during a virus scan or a system fualt.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Kitchenaid beater rubs bottom of the bowl

Your beater to bowl clearance has come out of alignment. This can happen naturally over time and with normal use of the appliance. This is something you may correct from home using a flathead screwdriver.

Unplug the mixer, with the bowl and flat beater removed. Tilt the mixing head back as far as the machine will allow. In the exposed hinge, behind where the bowl would normally sit, you will see a 3/8 screw exposed. Turn this screw half a turn counterclockwise (to your left) in order to raise the flat beater from the bottom of the bowl.

This may take a few attempts until the beater is clearing the bottom of the bowl again. If the adjustment screw will no longer turn, do not force it. It is only designed to move so far to make the appropriate adjustment.

Be cautious. Raising the flat beater too high may leave dry ingredients at the bottom of the bowl.

If further information is needed, I would advise you to contact Kitchenaid Customer Service. They may walk through this adjustment through you over the phone and can look into ordering replacement beaters for you also.

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

You need to replace either the bowl or the lid. Either the lid is not pushing the bowl mechanisms far enough or there is too much lost movement in the bowl part.

On the KitchenAid 3 cup Chef's Chopper, How do you lock the blade so I can turn on the chopper?


The Kitchenaid food choppers 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 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.
