Krups Tea Kettle isn't working. I believe the problem is in the handle. It doesn't heat the water.


hello,

the handle has noting to do with the heater what you need to check on is the connection from the power supply if the connection is alright then you will have consider the element it is the heat provider connected to the wire it means that it is weak it need to be replace with a better one the element is in silver colour you can get it in any technical store/shop around you.

thank you

Krups kettle leaks at base of pot


Unfortunately it's unfixable. A few recent Philips models do it as well and it's worst in hard water areas. Basically the cause is that a tiny bit of water gets into the bottom seam each time the kettle is used and leaves a residue behind when it dries out. Over time, the residue builds up and forces the seam apart so the leak gets worse.

All you can realistically do is hope that it's still under warranty and demand that Krups replace it, preferably with a different model. If they won't then you may have to exert whichever consumer rights exist in your country, but one way or another you need to stop using your kettle (it's dangerous!) and replace it with another.

Breville kettle blew fuse (trip switch) now won't switch on


If the 'neon' light is on, the power is getting to the kettle, so if its not heating up then the element must have broken.

This kettle has a little white trip switch inside the 'socket' of the kettle (not the base unit). If its not heating, light is not on and the plug fuse is OK, then poke the white trip until it clicks.
