Question about Breville SK500-XL Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle

Switch has stopped working, kettle will not heat water

The switch has stopped working on my Breville SK500-XL Kettle, so that it will no longer heat water. This has been an intermittent problem for a few weeks and now it seems entirely broken. Is there a part I can order and fix it myself or do you have a service center in the Northern California/San Francisco region that handles such repairs? Thank you. Bruce Williamson

Hi Bruce or anyone else that has this problem.
I had this problem too and after pulling the base off I found that the switch was ok but the problem lay with the two bi-metallic thermal overload switches that are connected to the heating element. I managed to reset them both and now the kettle works fine. This can become an issue if you have accidently boiled the kettle dry once in it's life. Best of luck.

Hi bruce. if you take out the switch. and have a good look at connections to it. see how it is constructed. yes you could make one up yourself, as long as you have the output for the same connection. if you have only two wires going in all you need is a rocker switch that will fit into the same slot. i hope this will help you ?

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.

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.

Intermittently working


That means that there is either a lost contact inside, or a defective switch.

The kettle must be taken apart to fix the problem.

Automatic switch off not working when water reached boiling.


There is no do it yourself fix for this problem. However, placing a folded cloth on top of the kettle (covering the spout) will cause it to switch off quicker, as it increases the pressure inside the kettle.

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.
