Has the Chopper been used for a Long Time?
Running your food chopper for an extended period of time produces heat. Occasionally, enough heat can be produced to create a fusion between the Multipurpose Blade and the motor shaft. Friction produced while processing very hard foods can also create enough heat to cause this fusion.
What to do:
- Remove the Work Bowl Cover and unlock the Work Bowl from the base so that it spins freely.
- Gently pull up on the Work Bowl while rotating it around the motor shaft.
- This will place pressure on the bottom of the blade and may dislodge the blade from the shaft.
