Using your food processor for a long period of time can produce heat. When enough heat is produced it can cause the blades to fuse with motor shaft.
The next steps may help you remove the blade form the motor shaft.
Remove the Work Bowl lid and unlock the Work Bowl from the base so that it spins freely.
Gently pull up on the Work Bowl while rotating it around he motor shaft.
This should put enough pressure on the bottom of the blade, to help dislodge it from the shaft.If you are able to remove the blade, inspect the motor shaft and the inside of the multipurpose blade for damage. If there is damage be careful not to use the blade or shaft again as the problem will be repeated.
Food processors can overheat and will shut off.
Once the food processor has cooled down completely it should work again.
Newer food processors are fitted with a current limiting device, this will help protect against overheating.
The limiting device will trip out if you are processing a heavy load.
If the food processor does not restart after it has cooled down for at least 30 minutes, then follow the next steps to reset the limiting device.
Remove the pusher assembly.
Release and relock the lid.
Release and relock the bowl
Unplug from socket and plug back in.
