Difficult to Attach Lid or Workbowl

On a new food chopper, it may be slightly difficult to attach the work bowl to the base.

It will loosen and become easier to assemble after several uses.

  • It may help to lock or unlock by gripping the base and using your thumb to push the handle into place, rather than using the handle only.

NOTE:   If the "Pulse/On"  button is depressed while trying to remove the lid or the bowl it will be locked in place and cannot be removed.

Use your thumb to push the lid or bowl open from the side.
