Assembling the KitchenAid Chopper

Assembling the KitchenAid Chopper

The Food Processor Work Bowl and lid have a Safety Locking Mechanism that must be properly assembled for the Food Processor to turn on. The most common reason for the food processor or chopper to not turn on is improper assembly.

All parts may appear to be aligned, but it's important to assemble in the correct order to ensure success.

  1. Place the work bowl on base, and if your model has a handle, slide the handle from the left to right and center in the front of the chopper.
  2. Drop the blade into the chopper and push down.  Some models have blades that "click" into place.
  3. Attach the chopper lid, sliding from left to right front center to align the locking mechanism.
