Question about Sunbeam Hot Shot Electric Kettle

Open Question

Sunbeam 3211 hot water dispenser at a mile high

Water boils at a lower temperature at higher altitude. Sunbeam must of forgotten this fact since I get 30 seconds of steam before the light goes off. The water sprays out from the heavy boiling action. Is there a way to adjust the high temperature limit?

No water coming out of hot side of dispenser, only cold

Like most coolers that have "hot" works of a "preheat" if you are not pumping out anything there is an obstruction that needs to be cleared.

Hi, I have a Bosch Private Collection Kettle. It is over a year old and has until recently been working fine. However, lately I do not feel that it boils to a high enough temperature for a long enough...

Some types of kettles use a separate power base to heat up the kettle jug. If this is the case with yours, turn the jug upside down and look. Also look at the parts on the base that touch the kettle jug contacts. If you can see the electrical contacts; mine were built on spiral rings for differing temperatures; try cleaning them with Brasso and a Q-tip (cotton swab) wiping the contacts several times to remove any tarnish and then use clean swabs to remove all traces of Brasso metal cleaner. Fill the kettle jug up to the maximum fill line and put the boiler on the maximum setting... boiling water. If the water doesn't boil... you have a more serious problem. Buy a new boiler as it isn't worth having someone fix it. Mine worked like new after I cleaned the contacts. Never immerse the jug contacts in water!!!

The water does not cool

the problem is in the compressor cooling unit, if you have no knowledge of electrical this is beyond your ability to service, it is of refrigerator technology, if so contact me and i will try to help you.

The switch does not automatically turn off when the water boils. If left alone all the water will boil out.

The switch has to turn off when the water boils as the heat generated must cut off the switch. If this wont work the bimetal is not working and the switch is not responding.
You will need to replace the switch. Please contact the dealership for the spare.

Does not seal when water is added. Water drips out

Filled Hot Shot with vinger, let it flow through at 15 minute intervals for a couple of hours.

Apparently the water here had lime and removed the buildup that was causing the leak.
