Replaced broken bowl. The locking mechanism is not sturdy on the original and breaks in the bowl handle. If this replacement lasts, I will be happy because I really like the processor.

No repair involved, just replacement. I am delighted to receive the bowl after a long wait. I tried several parts sales on line and they were all showing either back-order or out of stock. Getting more frustrated, I ended up purchasing a re-conditioned food processor, same make. Now with the new bowl received from PartSelect I have a backup if the work bowl becomes damaged again.

Easy enough to order and quick delivery, even with holiday shipping. Possible design flaw?

No repair needed, a part on original work bowl must have broken, so bowl wouldn't lock properly to base and processor wouldn't operate. Replacement bowl fixed the problem right away. Thank you!

This required a several unsuccessful phonecalls to small parts repair companies who didn't know how to remove the old plastic casing required to fix the electronics. An electronics friend assisted me and took all morning to help take it apart and repair it. Now, there is another problem: the safety switch spring is not engaging with the food container. Very frustrating that these devices cannot be repaired simply. It should not be necessary to purchase an entire new unit, but it appears they are so designed to do just that.

I tried to purchase a new bowl at a store that sell KitchenAid with no luck. After a trip to our nearest outlet I went online and found PartSelect I ordered the new bowl on Saturday evening and it was delivered Tuesday morning. Thank you PartSelect you are listed in my favorites for my next mishap

The front part of the handle of the work bowl came off my old processor and you could not lock bowl in place. Thus, it required a new bowl or buy a new processor, which I did not want to do.
