    You probably need a triangular screwdriver. Check Amazon or eBay.

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.

    This fix worked for our Breville Ikon kettle. It was 'dead,' with no light or heat. Checked socket in bottom of kettle and found a white trip switch. Pushed until it clicked and the unit was once more in working mode. Thanks.

    I have a BKE260 and i think it overheated as the switch was accidentally turned on with no water on. I found a white switch under the kettle but the only way I could "click" it was to stick a pair of scissors in there and try to flatten it - no click though - is that correct? Thanks

    I have a BKE260 Glass Breville Kettle and it accidentally switched on with no water so I think it's also overheated and the switch is tripped. I looked under the kettle (not base) and saw a white switch and the only way I could touch it was to stick a pair of scissors in there and try to flatten the switch but it didn't work - is that the right white switch? Thanks

    I discovered this solution myself when I looked at the base of my Ikon 500KL model kettle. There were two narrow white lever-like switchess sticking out inside the socket. I gave them a poke with a Q-tip, put the kettle back on its base, and it worked fine. I should note, there was no "click" or anything. I suspect these are meant to reset themselves when the kettle is removed from the base but had gotten stuck.

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 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.

Have a problem with a Breville Classique kettle,model number jk91. It does not switch off automatically. Any suggestions please? regards Sandra Smith e-mail davidforrest@hotmail.com


Every kettle has a thermostat/thermometer that trips the switch to off when the water reaches boiling point. The solution is not usually something you can do yourself. Your best bet is to consult the manufacturer for a repair/replacement (if under warranty). I recommend that you contact the retailer first as most retailers have an agreement with the maunufacturer to replace most small kitchen items if it's still under warranty and develops a fault.

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.

My daughter bought me an Alessi cordless kettle for Christmas 2008. After 9 months it simply stopped heating water! The red light was lit on the base, so we knew the fuse hadn't gone, but it was completely...


Have you tried using it on a different socket outlet ? Possibly there is a problem with the wiring at this socket.
If the electricity supply "trips" at the consumer unit it is either the RCD which trips due to e.g. the base of the kettle becoming wet or alternatively the MCB tripping due to an overload which shouldn't happen unless there is a fault in the kettle.
When you got a replacement kettle presumably they replaced the base also?

Problems with Breville SK500XL Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle


There's a thermal cutout that trips if the regular safety switch isn't enough. According to the manual, if the thermal cutout trips you have to send it back to Breville for servicing.

That may be what happened, if just letting it cool down and trying again didn't work.
