All of what you say is pretty obvious, of course. My problem is that the bowl lid won’t lock onto the bowl, apparently because there’s a white plastic hook in the area of the locking mechanism. Not obvious what the purpose of that hook is, as it’s not mentioned in the manual or video. I could be wrong, but maybe that plastic hook is not supposed to be there? I’ve asked Cuisinart, and am awaiting a reply. I told them I resent having to dig for info on an appliance I’ve been using for decades. Poor design, or poor documentation, or both. Got any suggestions?

Never mind. I found out the feeder goes in the back, not the front. Then it works.
