What a crazy over-complicated kettle!
Disc element kettles do tend to have a limited life that is a small fraction of the lifespan of standard kettle elements. The ones I have had usually only last until the guarantee has expired. To discover whether it is the kettle or the base it will be necessary to use a multimeter to check the supply from the base.
Are you sure it's not heating the water? The only time it heats is when it takes the detergent, all rinses are in cold water only. To test the heater, put the dial to the OFF position, press and hold the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (30 easycare) when the two middle lights come on or 888 in display (if there's a display), take your finger off the start, turn the dial to 90 cotton (the long way, counterclockwise, not thro the OFF) press start, the tub will fill and it will do a stationary heat, you should hear the element/water making a noise like a kettle boiling. Leave the machine like this for a few minutes. Put dial to off until the door lock disengages and touch the water to see if it's warm. Put the machine on drain to clear water. If there is defo no heat repost and I will give you step by step of changing element. Cheers Roni
Ultimately, how I ended up fixing my Oster 5965 and Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric 40898 kettles that had the same problems as you (Nothing would work; no heat, no buttons would light up) was by taking apart the bottom screws (Be warned, for only one screw I needed a "Spanner Insert Bit"). I jiggled the connectors as I rang them out with my multimeter and everything seemed to work. Leaving the bottom off I retested the kettle and it just worked. I reassembled the parts and made my happy wife a cup of English Tea.
If your Macintosh computer won't turn on, here's how to troubleshoot it. Please keep in mind that although your computer may display similar symptoms that prevent it from showing video, this article discusses what to do if the computer won't turn on, meaning that when you press the power button:
You don't hear a startup chime
You don't hear any fan or drive noise
The power button or power indicator doesn't light up at all
If your computer doesn't display any video, it may display one or more of these similar symptoms when you press the power button:
You may hear a startup chime
You may hear fan or drive noise
You may see the power button or power indicator light up
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
Reset the computer's PMU or PRAM.
For a portable (iBook or PowerBook), click here for instructions.
For any other computer, click here for instructions on resetting the PRAM.
Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord. You can get a replacement cord for some models here.
If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
When Popper Has Popped Corn Just Before. 1. Pour the properly measure amount of Oil into the kettle. 2. Wait about 45 seconds - or until the Oil in the kettle starts to smoke slightly. 3. Pour the contents of the properly measured corn cup (kernels plus popcorn salt or Flavacol) into the kettle. 4. Wait about 2 1/2 minutes. If you are using a pan on the stove without an agitator, you must constantly shake gently. When the crackling noise of the popping corn is no longer heard, dump the kettle and empty it completely. 5. Repeat if needed for more popcorn. 6. When you are finished popping, turn off the kettle agitator switch (if you have one) and turn off the Pilot light/ heat switch. 7. After the machine has cooled enough so as not to be dangerously hot, wipe the outside of the kettle with a soft damp cloth. This helps prevent a heavy build-up of the Oil.
TIPS - Bagged floss keeps a day or two, depending on the humidity - Use bags to make and display cotton candy in advance - use cones for immediate sales - Unless you're experienced, it's best to turn off the motor to refill the spinner head - If machine will be used more than 20ft. from power source, be sure to have an adequate extension cord
OK, inside the unit there are three items, the heating element, thermostat, and thermal fuse.What has happened is the element got too hot and the thermal fuse opened.There is no reset button.In some cases you may run across a defective heating element or thermostat but its not common.The fix would probably be replacement of the thermostat and thermal fuse.For this, you would have to contact a small appliance repair center in your area.
