Need to clean inside of handle on KitchenAid food processor
The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.
Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

Just stopped working
Most often when that model processor stops working it is associated with the mechanisms in the lid and bowl that activate the safety switch that prevents you turning it on when the bowl & lid is not on correctly. The mechanisms are not repairable, the fix is to replace the bowl or the lid or both. A proper KitchenAid service agent should have both in stock, take your complete machine in so that the faulty part can be identified.

Motor won't start when bowl locked in position
Hi, I had the same problem with my KitchenAid KFP740. The fix was the handle cap was loose. We all have a tendency to lift the unit out of the cabinet by the handle and it is heavy! The handle has a mechanism inside. The outside piece of the handle that holds it all inside gets loose making the pin at the bottom of the bowl not reach where it needs to be when you put the lid on. If you assemble the unit and squeeze the top of the handle after you put the lid on mine would work. A little gorilla glue and I was back in business!
