Button Won't Press Down ¶ 

The large gray button that turns the blade refuses to press down.

Lid is Not Secure ¶ 

The lid of the mini chopper must be locked into place before the button may be pressed. Before assembly, make sure all parts are very clean.

First, make sure the main container is securely fastened. To do so, align the two bumps on the clear container with the grooves on the black body. Twist clockwise until the container locks in place.

The blade must also be in place in order for the lid to fit on the container. Using caution, place the blade over the middle pillar. Push gently while twisting slowly until the blade slides down in place.

Place the lid on the top of the container so that its white dot is pointing away from you and the white dot on the black body is pointing to your right. While pressing down gently, turn the lid clockwise until both dots are aligned and the lid locks in place.

If the lid refuses to lock completely, the locking switch may be jammed. Make sure there is no debris blocking its movement. If the switch is clear and the lid still refuses to lock, try replacing the switch.

Lid is Broken ¶ 

If lid is missing its side tabs, it is broken and needs to be replaced.
