Liquid Leaking During Use - Food Processor

Possible Solutions

Was the Work Bowl too full? 

It is important to not fill the Work Bowl with liquid above the maximum liquid level. If you do overfill,  the liquid will go under the blade and out onto the base of the food processor. Some models have the maximum liquid level marked on the side of the bowl, while others state the maximum level in the Owner's Manual. Some models have a red seal on the work bowl that helps eliminate leaking.

Was the correct blade used? 

Liquids should only be processed with the Multipurpose Blade. Liquids should not be processed with the Egg whip, as this will increase the likelihood of leakage.
