My waterpik trips my electrical breaker repeatedly

Each time I use it, the power breaker kicks off. Even my hair dryer on the same circuit doesn't trip the breaker

    What year is the house? Is this a GFCI protected breaker? It will have a yellow test button on the breaker if it is.

How to fix a kettle when the power switch switches off before boiling point?


There can be several causes. In many cases the power switch is thermo or current tripped, It is like a thermo circuit breaker.

The power switch itself may have to be changed.
The element is pulling too much current.
The thermostat may be defective.

Contact the manufacture to find out where you can buy spare parts to try. You will require the proper connectors, and crimp tools to work inside of these. Also, you will require a sound knowledge of how these appliances work, and the safe way of servicing them.

Because of the way you asked the question, I would think you are not familiar with how to service these devices. I would suggest to give the kettle to a service rep, or to purchase a new one. There are safety issues when servicing appliances.

My kettle keeps blowing the circuit


If the fuse in the mains plug or MCB at the consumer unit / fuse box keeps tripping then there probably is a fault in the kettle element or switch. If the RCD is tripping (the safety device with the test button on it) then there is an electrical leak either due to a crack in the element or water has got into the wiring, switch or power cord of the kettle.
Allow the kettle to dry out in a warm place for a day. Also check it at another power outlet to eliminate any problem with the outlet you are using.

Our stove turned on but then turned off and now it doesnt want to start how can we fix it its electric


check your fuse/circuit breaker. Most stoves have a specific fuse or circuit breaker in the power box.
Also, might seem a bit silly, but check if you have a stove switch on the wall near the stove. If that's turned off you won't get it to work :)

The power switch light on my kettle comes on but it wont boil


1. Check the continuity on the power switch
2. Check to see if any thermal cut-out is open circuit
3. Check to see if the element has gone open circuit.

Any open circuit indicates the part will require replacing. Given the cost of the kettle, if the element has gone open circuit it may be worth considering replacing the kettle itself.

Power trip


Based on what you are telling me, you have a very serious short inside the kettle. If you are familiar with electric circuits, you can remove the bottom and have a look. Maybe you can at least see the short and maybe repair it. Otherwise, have a appliance repair shop have a look.

My friend, your original statement did bring a slittle smile to my lips on this cold January day. Thanks for that.

Electric tripping


There is no way to boost the amount of electricity to your kitchen, short of having an electrician run additional outlets on a new circuit. It sounds like you have too many appliances plugged into one circuit. Most kitchens built since the adoption of building codes have two small appliance circuits, usually on opposite sides of the room. Try moving the electric kettle across the room. If that doesn't work, try unplugging or at least not using the toaster, toaster oven, electric griddle, coffee maker, microwave, or other high demand appliances at the same time.

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.
