Question about Cuisinart KUA-17 Cordless Electric Kettle
I have a Cuisinart KUA-17 tea kettle. The pin in the center of the bottom that is part of the control broke. I took the kettle apart and the control comes out easily. It is manufactured for Cuisinart (and others) by Strix in the UK. I contacted Cuisinart for the part. They don't sell parts! Since my unit is out of warranty their comment was to throw it away! I contacted Strix who won't sell me the part. Plus they said even if they would sell it, it would cost more to buy it and ship it from the UK than the tea kettle is worth. Anybody got any ideas? Anybody know a Cusinart repair center that might be able to supply me with the part? (I guess I just may have to throw it away. Probably won't buy any more Cuisinart appliances.)
Most likey a burned out heating coil. You can buy them let me know the model number and I can give you a web site to go to buy it.

SOURCE: I mistakenly pu the cuisinart
Hi im sorry i can only give you bad news these are not made to be repaired and you cant get the parts that you need, they are made to be thrown away after use which is bad i know but the cost of making them is low so they dont offer any spares as the cost of a new one would cost less than getting yours repaired,
so im sorry i cant offer you good news but with something like this its just not possible.
let me know if i can do anything else for you

I took the base apart an repaired the electrical connection. You need a special screwdriver to remove the 3 base screws. I took an old, cheap flat-head driver and filed a v-notch in the middle of the blade so it would work to remove the screws. Had to replace the connector because of corrosion. That fixed the problem for me.

Yes, I opened the base (v-shape screws) and saw that the contact switch was burnt out. Where can I find the round contact switch?
