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
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.
