Question about Food Processors
Hi, my kitchen aid broke last nite...this is the 2nd food processor that has broken IN THE SAME Place....I think its called stem support for the blade
The closest I have seen recently - there is an auction for a complete KFP-700 with work bowl/lid intact on eBay right now:

This sounds like an issue relating with the assembly of the machine. The motor is definitely getting power if the indicator is lit. However, Kitchenaid food processors are designed (as a safety feature) to remain unengaged if the unit is not assembled in such a way. Here is the proper assembly:
Please disassemble the unit. This means: removing the blade, removing the work bowl, the work bowl cover, and unplugging the unit.
Starting with the work bowl: place the handle at the 9 o'clock position, which is out to the left. Rotate downward to the 6 o'clock position until it locks in, centered over the button panel.
Repeat the process with the work bowl lid.
Depending on which food processor you have, you may need the feed tube pusher depressed at least half way down the feed tube.
Plug in the unit. The blade does not have be installed for unit it to work at this point, assuming everything is assembled properly and the motor is functioning. The motor should now be working.

This may be caused by a number of factors. Most commonly, it is because the work bowl is being over-filled or too much pressure is being exerted on ingredients as they fall through the feed tube. Doing this may cause the disc to come off balance and start sheering plastic.
Call Kitchenaid Customer Service and provide them with this description. They will replace the unit free of charge, regardless of it's age or warranty. Their toll-free telephone number is:
