SOURCE: Kettle Keeps jolting out of place

Popcorn popper is approximately three weeks old and now the popcorn clogs up in the hopper (cooker pot), the gear quits turning, and we have to pry the popcorn out. It worked perfectly when we first got it and now it is nothing but a pain to use. We tried several popcorns, cooking oils and amounts of oils, but the problem continues. I noticed the small spring located on the lower shaft doesn't cover the entire shaft. Is it supposed to be longer? Your prompt reply for a solution would be greatly appreciated or we will have to return the unit to our local retailer where we purchased it.

SOURCE: kettle lights but doesn't boil

Most likely the thermo fuse is blown.

You have to take the kettle apart and see the spec for the thermo fuse. You can get these at most any electronics parts supplier for appliances.

To change the thermo fuse you will need the proper crimp type connectors and the crimp tool. This is not able to be soldered. It runs too hot, and soldering in a circuit close to a heating element is not able to be used.

Before changing the thermo fuse, you can test it with an ohm meter. It should typicaly read about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms. The heating element resistance should typicaly read about 8 to 12 ohms.

If the heating element reads below 6 to 7 ohms on a well calibrated ohm meter, or above 15 ohms, it is defective.

If the thermo fuse is blown, the kettle may have been left running when boiled out and over heated, or there is a short in the heating element.

If you feel that you are not comfortable to do this type of repair, it would be best to give the kettle out to an appliance service centre to have it serviced.

When you change the thermo fuse, and if it blows again the heating element is probably damaged. It must be replaced if possible, or if worth the cost.

On the other hand, if the kettle is more than a few years old and you don't want to go to all this trouble, you may want to consider to simply get a new one.

SOURCE: Amana Mod # ABB2223DEB Refrigerator

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

Wont cut off when boiled


Is the kettle lid fully down? If not then the sensor won't get hot enough to activate the power cut off sequence. If all this is OK then consider junking the kettle for a new one. Obviously, if you are attached to kettle then take it to a reputable repairer. If the kettle is a fairly cheap one he should suggest replacing it.

Pot doesn't shut automaticly when starts boiling


I had this problem too, but once I made sure the lid was securely closed, it was able to build up enough pressure inside of the carafe that it flipped the switch to off. So I'd try making sure the lid is snapped closed, which takes a bit more pressure than you'd think.

Be careful about doing this while it's boiling though! Steams a b**ch

I have a kenwood sjm350 and it keeps stopping during the boil cycle, have to remove from mains and boil again 3 or 4 times to get boiling water


Either the boil thermostat is faulty or the protective overheat cut-off is operating prematurely.

There is nothing you can do to fix either problem: it's a cheap kettle (no better or worse than average) and definitely not designed to be repaired. If the kettle is still under warranty you can get it repaired (in practice, Kenwood will usually just replace it). If the kettle is out of warranty then all you can do is to bin it and buy a replacement.

Note that if you're in the UK then you'll also have Sale of Goods Act protection; this means it's your right to demand that the retailer gives you a refund (full or partial, depending upon how long the product has lasted) or replacement as the goods have proven not to be of durable quality. The Act covers you for up to six years (five in Scotland), but allows for the fact that you can't expect a £32 kettle (current typical retail price) to last much more than perhaps a year to eighteen months. In reality, most UK retailers will try to insist you use the manufacturers warranty as it's usually more convenient for all concerned but you do have the legal right to insist that the retailer provides the remedy.

I hope that you've found my reply to be of use and in return I ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Kettle doesn't turn off


Our first Smart Kettle was great and worked well for years, finally died so we bought another. Right from the first boil it seemed to boil for about 2 or 3 minutes before turning off and then either didn't boil or made beeping sounds when not being used so after a couple of weeks we returned it and it was replaced. Great. But now this new one seems to boil and boil before turning off so maybe they are just faulty now. Any suggestions?

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.
