Question about Breville SK85XL Nova Cordless Electric Kettle

Plug amp I have a breville illuminator and the fuse has blown. I notice on the plug it states 13amp but the fuse that I took out was 5amp, please could you confirm if it is safe to use a 13amp fuse?

    The kettle does not turn on, presumably due to a blown fuse. However, saddison's post would suggest that the fuse is visible somewhere, but I can't find it. Where should one look for the fuse?

Yes it should be safe to use a 13 amp fuse.

The convention with fuses is up to 720 watts a 3 amp fuse should be used and above 720 watts a 13 amp fuse should be used.

To be precise you need to know the exact wattage of the kettle.
Sometimes maufacturers will fit 5 amp fuses but these are only good for a power rating of 1200 watts maximum (at 240 volts).

So as your kettle is rated at more than 1200 watts it needs a 13 amp fuse.

Hope this is a FixYa.

My Breville water kettle stopped heating water. This is my second teakettle to do this. We have had this second kettle for about 2 years. We always were careful to make sure the kettle is off before


Unless you can take it apart and repair it yourself, it probably isn't worth the cost to have it repaired. There are several websites that sell parts, but you really have to be familiar with electrical circuits to diagnose it. Possibilities are:
1. It could be the thermostatic switch that turns it off as it reaches temperature. These are little devices with two wires connected and are in the base of the unit. these normally reset themselves but can stop working, especially if they have gotten wet.

2. It could be the cord to the unit with a wire broken at the base or the plug end.
3. It could be a thermal fuse; these are about 1/4 inch in diameter and may be hidden in an insulating sleeve near the element; they are sensitive to both heat and current.

3. It could be the element is burned out.

No illumination


If it works without illumination, it's ok.

No lights or boil


I would test the thermo fuse, power switch, and the AC cord. You will need the proper connectors, crimp tool, and replacement parts.

How do I change or check the fuse on a moulded plug


On the pin side of the plug there is a plastic cover which you lever out, and the fuse usually comes out with it. If you don't have a test meter to check the fuse then either Take a known working fuse from a working appliance and put that in the plug or take the fuse from the plug and put that in a known working appliance oplug and see if it works. In my experience it is rarely the fuse and more likely to be a connection in the kettle base or the thermal cutout in the kettle has fused.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

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.

Okay. I took the base off the kettle (made a special screwdriver). Saw that one of the contacts was loose on its 'swage'. Used a pin punch to re-swage it. Bingo! it worked.
