Hide thumbs



When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. To protect against risk of electrical
shock, do not put base, cord, or plug
in water or other liquid.
3. Close supervision is necessary when
any appliance is used by or near
4. Turn unit off and unplug from outlet
when not in use, before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning.
To disconnect, turn unit off, grasp
plug, and pull from wall outlet.
Never pull on cord.
5. Avoid coming in contact with
moving parts.
6. Do not operate appliance with
damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or has been
damaged in any manner.
7. The use of attachments not
recommended or sold by the
appliance manufacturer may cause
fire, electric shock, or injury.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over edge
of table or counter or touch
hot surfaces.
10. Keep hands and utensils away from
moving Blades or Discs while processing
food to reduce the risk of severe
injury to persons or damage to the
Food Processor. A scraper may be
used but must be used only when the
Food Processor is not running.
11. Blades are sharp. Handle carefully.
12. Be sure to insert or remove
Chopping Blade and Slice/Shred
Disc by using hubs to avoid injury.
13. To avoid injury, never place Chopping
Blade or Slice/Shred Disc on Base
without first putting Bowl properly in
place. Make sure motor, Disc, and/or
Chopping Blade have stopped
completely before removing Cover.
14. Be certain Cover is securely locked in
place before operating appliance.
15. Never feed food into Chute by hand.
Always use Food Pusher.
16. Do not attempt to defeat the Cover
Interlock Mechanism.
17. Excessive strain may cause the motor to
overheat and stop. A safety protector
in the motor prevents excessive
overheating. If the motor stops, turn
machine off. Wait for the motor to
cool, 5-10 minutes.
18. Do not operate this appliance in
the presence of explosive and/or
flammable fumes.
Consumer Safety Information
The cord of this appliance was selected
to reduce the possibility of tangling or
tripping over a longer cord. If more
length is needed, use an Underwriters
Laboratories (UL)-Listed, NOM, or
appropriate agency-approved extension
cord rated no less than 15-amperes and
120 volts. When using an extension cord,
do not let it drape over the working
area or dangle where someone could
accidentally trip over it. Handle cord
carefully for longer life; avoid pulling
or straining it at outlet and appliance
NOTE: If the power supply cord is
damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, a service agent or a
similarly qualified person in order
to avoid a hazard.
(120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug-one
blade is wider than the other. As a safety
feature, this plug will fit into a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not
fit fully into the outlet, reverse it and try
again. If it still does not fit, contact an
electrician. Do not attempt to defeat the
purpose of this safety feature.
To reduce the risk of fire or electric
shock, do not attempt to remove the
bottom cover. There are no user
serviceable parts inside. Repair should
be done only by authorized service
• When unpacking the product and
removing packing material, handle the
Chopping Blade, and Slice/Shred Disc
carefully; they are very sharp.
• Wash all parts except the Base in hot,
soapy water. Rinse them dry. These parts
can also be placed in the dishwasher.
Be sure to read this Use & Care
Manual, paying special attention to
the sections on "Using Your Food
Processor" and "Care and Cleaning"
to learn the correct methods for taking
the unit apart and cleaning.

    I have a GE Food processor and it is an older one. I need a owners manual for it. It is brown around the bottom. A tan
    color on top. it has two buttons, one white and one orange.
    The white on is on the left, which is the on & off switch. And
    the orange button on the right is to pulse. I hope you can help me.
    Thank you so much.
