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.

SOURCE: Hamilton Beach food processor, model 70450, cracked bowl

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.

SOURCE: my braun 3210 food processor will not work with

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.

How to take out stuck chef bowl


I've not seen a bowl stuck on one of those unless the chopping blade is jammed on the shaft and preventing the bowl lifting up. Or is the chef bowl a smaller bowl that fits inside the main bowl?

How do you take bowl off for cleaning


Hope you've worked it out by now, but there are 2 notches at the bottom of the bowl that slot into the base. To remove the bowl, take the lid off and rotate the bowl clockwise so the notches disengage from the base, and simply lift it off/. I assume if you couldn't do this the bowl must have had a lot of gunk stuck in the notches which prevented it from moving - yuk! I put my bowl and lid in the dishwasher - no prob.

I can't get the food bowl off the processing unit. i have removed the cover as the manual says. I have left the blade in as the manual says. The picture looks as thought you should just lift it...


On page 8 of the manual that I will give you the link to: leave the cover in place on the container. Use the cover to help remove the container. Rotate the cover clockwise 180 degrees until the two tabs on the cover meet the two container tabs. Continue to turn the cover, but do not press down as you turn, using your thumb against the tabs until the container is released. Empty the remaining food from the container.

I cannot remove the top from the base


I don't know what brand food processor this is. However, are you saying that the bowl will not rotate to release? It's normally just a matter of twisting the bowl (probably anti clockwise when viewed from the top) in order to release it.

Have trouble getting it to start


The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. I am thinking this is an issue of assembly because the light is on, so the unit is definitely getting power.

Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.
