Question about Breville SK500-XL Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle
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 ?
