Rival 1.7L "Cordless" Electric Kettle loose connection

Have had this electric kettle for only two years, bought for very cheap at Walmart and it's labeled Walmart on the bottom but Rival on the side. Worked fabulously for 2 years but lately need to put pressure on one side to keep the light/power on. Have found elsewhere this is a problem but have not found the solution yet. Going to keep working on it tonight to see what I can learn about the unit.

    Yee-haw! Fixed it! I figured the way it was acting it had to be a contact issue, everything else was fine. The kettle contacts were clean, dry, straight and not loose. Figured I'd see if the base had anything that could be adjusted. First unplugged the base and pulled back the spring-loaded plastic bit that covers the kettle contact entrance. Inside there are three copper-colored strips of some sort that line up with the three kettle contacts. Two of them were the same height, and the third (the one on the side I always had to push on to keep the kettle running) was clearly lower, as though it had been bent down. Keeping the spring-loaded plastic cover open, I used a screwdriver tip to gently bend that copper strip back up to the same height as the other strips (it was easy to do). Plugged the unit back in, put some water in the kettle, switched it on, and voila it ran without me needing to babysit it at all. :}

SOURCE: HD 4651/C Electric Kettle Handle switch lights but wont heat

This maybe the thermo fuse, and or the heating element that is defective. These parts must be properly replaced for safety issues.

Usually these appliances are not worth to service.

Spares for Breville Electric Kettle

Okay. I took the base off the kettle (made a special screwdriver). Saw that one of the contacts was loose on its 'swage'. Used a pin punch to re-swage it. Bingo! it worked.
