Artisan mixers do not "switch". The food processor gets power from the power take off (PTO) shaft under the cap on the front of the mixer and the mixer gets power through the gear box. Both get motor power all the time all the time.

To "switch", take the bowl and beaters off the Artisan. Remove the PTO cap and install the food processor. Tape up your sleeves so the mixer drive does not grab your blouse. Turn on the mixer (as usual), adjust the speed (as usual), and process away.

one of two issues:
-either it has started pulling more amps than needed after many years of faithful service, or
-you now have something else plugged into the same circuit that is causing the circuit to trip

in either case, you will need an electrician to inspect and verify with multimeter (unless you know how to do so yourself). try unplugging any new items you may have purchased since just before the issues started
