Question about KitchenAid KFP500 Ultra Power Food Processor
I can no longer turn the lid onto my food processor. The food cup is securely locked in, but when I try to turn the lid on to lock the lid in place, it will not go on. I know that there is a small plastic part in the handle that must go down into the base and am thinking that is the problem. When the food cup is off, I cannot push the white button down either.
It sounds like you need a new working bowl. It is not uncommon for that safety switch mechanism to fail inside the handle.

With the food processor I have it will not allow you to remove the bowl unless the top is off.Try take the top off or putting it on.Then remove it from the 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.
