VS/GS Attachments: HAND WASH ONLY, do NOT clean in the dishwasher. Commercial detergents and solvents may discolor the products anodized aluminum and will VOID the product warranty. For best performance, lubricate frequently after cleaning with USDA approved grease or oil noted on Page 117.

Take note to ensure that the Power Attachment SHAFT of any item is seated properly INTO the HUB of the Mixer or Power Drive that you are using. If you find that the door of the food processor doesn’t close entirely or that the disc holder, disk itself or the slicer knife blade” rubs up against the door of the unit, it may be simply because the shaft was not rotated so it fit back into the hub properly. After trying to seat the square shaft end, please examine the following other two areas:
- REMOVE ANY WASTE OR FOOD RESIDUE FROM THE FEMALE HUB COUPLING RECEPTACLE. This is where the power attachment SHAFT is inserted.
- Ensuring that this area is now free of all waste build up, please note that there is a SET SCREW at the very end of the inside of this hub coupling collar. Please make sure that this set screw has not loosened over time during use. If it has, consult your mixer/power drive owner’s manual and review the tightening procedures for this component. Once you have done so, tighten this set screw accordingly until it rests firmly in place. This should now allow your power attachment shaft to be rotated so that it seats correctly into the female hub coupling for proper product operation.
