Question about Food Processors
SOURCE: Blade will not release
Our blade just came apart at the seam just above the blade, so we know what's inside. There is a small v-shaped piece of spring wire that is spread apart from the stem that is mounted to the machine. When the button is depressed (it's on a tiny spring, like a mattress spring, and that's what makes it bouncy), it spreads the v-spring wire and releases it. If you can get the seam apart, it will release the v wire and not damage the machine. Replacement blades are available on-line for $13.95, and whole machines are available on e-bay. Good luck.

You have a couple of choices here. The quickest and cheapest is to go to the hardware store, or a home depot and get a tube of one minute clear epoxy. This adhesive will repair the crack and since it is clear it will barely show. Plus it will dry in just one minute.
That said, yhou could also go to hamiltonbeach.com and get a new part.

I had a similar problem. Part of the lid had a small piece of plastic chipped away. It was the part of the lid that rotates and locks into the machine base. If the lid is missing a small piece of plastic on where it connects to the base, the machine will not switch on. You can compare the lid for the food processor to the mixing lid and see if the piece that juts into the base is broken at all. If it is order a new lid. There are several online places that still carry them; or try a local parts store.
