Question about KitchenAid Food Processors
Acts like a breaker-switch has tripped because reseating the mixing bowl reproduces the problem (runs 3 sec and stops)... otherwise, after it stops, the ON light stays on. Pressing the OFF button turns the ON light off but pressing the ON (or PULSE) button turns the associated light on, not the motor, that only occurs if the mixing bowl is reseated. Any idea how I can fix this motor? Thanks, Richard
Determine first if it really is the motor. Does it only cut out if loaded or will it happen without any load? Remove all bowls and blades, plug it in and turn the power on and press the on button. With something plastic press the small white button that is in the middle above the switch panel and normally hidden by the bowl. This is the safety cutout switch avtivated by the bowl, lid and pusher being in position. Does the motor run while the button is depressed or does it again cut out after a short time but with button still depressed. If it doesn't cut out it's likely that wear in the complicated mechanisms in the lid and bowl handle are releasing the cutout switch with small vibrations of motor running. I figure out which one to replace by swapping out one of the 2 parts for a new one as I try to carry both parts in stock for that purpose.
