Why do certain programs not work?

The programs were designed to give you the best results for the jar you are working with. As such not all the programs work on all the jars. For example, the stacked blades in our pitcher are best for crushing ice, so the frozen drink button is not available on our food processor because your results simply wouldn’t be as good.
