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.
If the blade is stuck on then there is likely damage to the hole inside the blade and the shaft sleeve it fits on to so you should expect to replace both or it's going to happen again and again. Brute force is going to be the answer. I have a chain that I wrap around the blade shaft where it goes onto the motor sleeve. Sometimes I secure it with a shackle or radiator hose clip then attach the other end of my chain to my workbench and accelerate the processor motor assembly away. Chain goes tight, big thump and blade flies off.
There is a clear L shaped tab that is "in the lid" that you slides or rather you rotates into and threw a crevice slot that alows the top switch to turn on or "even move" for that matter. This seems to be a rather clever safety switch that is down right frustrating when your excited about using this machine, while thinking that we just switch it on like our lights...Safe machine...."will not work" period without the lid and bowl softly connected to the right arrow or line up markers.
OK this is the fix for the LC6200 that worked for me. Unscrew top cover (2 screws) then another screw holding internals to external case. Carefully remove safety switch lever (use long nose pliers from the top next to lever to squeeze plastic barb that holds the levers in to the plastic body). Remove all screws on the bottom. Open and undo the drive shaft pully nut clockwise. Pull out shaft and remove belt. Unscrew motor from chassis plate. From the bottom push out the plastic speed control dial with screwdriver. Remove motor and component boards. Check microswitches. Then remove diac DB3 and replace. Remove triac BT137 600v and replace. PS I used a 800v motorola MAC228 instead. Assemble in reverse. Good Luck. denisprod
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)
My wife was given this unit from an elderly gentleman that was done trying to make it work.
I just fixed the same problem as above. Note - I do not have a manual for this unit.
True above about the bowl cover being locked in position but found the key to make it work is also the white lid to the left of the bowl cover. I was locking and unlocking this white lid with no results. Then I removed the bowl cover and found the white lid cover was loose and easily removed this white lid to inspect inside ( why this cover removes I have no clue).
Anyway I was able to snap the white cover firmly on and turn counter clockwise to lock in place ( six o’clock position), then after putting the bowl cover back on and snapping in place it works.
Note - I do not need to turn the white lid cover to install or remove the clear bowl cover, this could be because it looks like one of the clear tabs might be broken on the locking area of the clear bowl cover. If you have two tabs the same shape on the bowl cover you may need twist the white lid clockwise to install and remove the bowl cover and counter clockwise to lock in place so the unit works, but now that my white lid is snapped firmly in place it hardly moves with the force of both hands trying to turn it.
Hope this helps someone.
Good Luck !
