That means that there is either a lost contact inside, or a defective switch.

The kettle must be taken apart to fix the problem.

Breville one cup filter kettle intermittently switches off before boiling . It will work if I keep the button depressed.


Oxidized or worn thermo-switch contacts.
Or, sometimes old age (kettle!:) or overheating can cause springy contacts to bend out of shape.
Get tech-minded person to open/inspect & renew as required.

Kettle not heating up


First check that the kettle is plugged into the cabinet. Then check if switch, (or red power light) lights up when you flipped the switch back and forth. If it does the problem is inside the kettle.

Contact a Gold Medal dealer for service options, repairing it is the best options as a replacement kettle for that model is very expensive.

Aroma AWK-161 Water Kettle not turning on


A power outage happened and all of a sudden Aroma kettle was not turning on. I tried different outlets that I knew worked... nothing. So, problem was certainly the kettle. I gave some good sold raps to the base of the kettle and then some to the base that plugs into wall. Walla! The kettle is now working. I pray it continues. And, from now on I'm unplugging base after each use :)

The instructions say make sure kettle motor is plugged in. Turn unit ON with switch on crown of machine. Allow unit to run for 3-5 minutes to heat up kettle. Turn unit off. Add 2 teaspoons of your favorite popcorn cooking oil to the kettle. Then add 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels to the kettle. Turn the unit on and close the door. When popping sound slows down turn the unit OFF. Flip the kettle over with the crank handle to empty the kettle. Repeat process until desired amount of popcorn has been popped.

When the kettle is switched on, the light comes on...


sounds like the element has died. If it's still under warranty, take it back. If it's not under warranty, contact an electrician or appliance repair person. Unless it's an expensive kettle though, it's probably not worthwhile fixing, as elements can sometimes be as expensive as a new kettle

Switch has stopped working, kettle will not heat water


Hi Bruce or anyone else that has this problem.
I had this problem too and after pulling the base off I found that the switch was ok but the problem lay with the two bi-metallic thermal overload switches that are connected to the heating element. I managed to reset them both and now the kettle works fine. This can become an issue if you have accidently boiled the kettle dry once in it's life. Best of luck.

Boils continually


much simpler solution: if the filter is not installed, is not installed correctly, or is ripped, the kettle will fail to shut off. also, this model has a lid that must be set down very tight; any leakage around the lid will allow steam to escape, and will cancel the auto shut-off.

the filters on these kettles are a very weak spot in the engineering of the product.
