Water or Food Inside Handle - Food Processor

Possible Solutions

Was the Work Bowl cleaned properly?

Occasionally water and/or food particles get inside the small drainage hole at the bottom of the Work Bowl Handle. This occurs most frequently when the Work Bowl is soaked in a sink full of soapy water. It can also happen if the Work Bowl has been washed in the Dishwasher with un-rinsed dishes.

The water will typically evaporate with time, although sometimes food particles remain inside the handle.  


  • Wash and dry the Work Bowl in the sink right away rather than soaking it in the water.
  • If cleaned in the dishwasher, do not combine with un-rinsed dishes. The spray action of the dishwasher should help dislodge the food particles.
