SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: When filled with water & put on to boil it

I think you would only solve this problem by cleaning the thermostat contacts, or replacing the thermostat which wouldn't be worthwhile as it's likely to be cheaper to buy a new kettle.
Besides this , just getting into the kettle needs special 3 tongue screwdriver and then a certain technique to open it up without damaging the plastic parts. Im'e afraid its a throw-away world now and its not good .

What are good features to look for in an electric kettle?


One of the best feature of electric kettle is it should be cordless. One of the most advantageous benefits experienced by those choosing to switch from the traditional methods of boiling water to the more convenient cordless electric kettle comes in the form of optimized time savings, cutting the time it normally takes to boil water by as much as seventy five percent. So for the cordless electric kettle water level indicator is essential. It must be long lasting and more durable. You can get more information about it from the coolkettles.co.uk. so go with this my provided link.

Have a problem with a Breville Classique kettle,model number jk91. It does not switch off automatically. Any suggestions please? regards Sandra Smith e-mail davidforrest@hotmail.com


Every kettle has a thermostat/thermometer that trips the switch to off when the water reaches boiling point. The solution is not usually something you can do yourself. Your best bet is to consult the manufacturer for a repair/replacement (if under warranty). I recommend that you contact the retailer first as most retailers have an agreement with the maunufacturer to replace most small kitchen items if it's still under warranty and develops a fault.

Our kettle has started making a crackling noise when turned on now; thought it does boil the water, and there is no odd smell from it.


Our kettle start making the same noises and now no lights come on. i can spin it around the base and sometime it connects and work. i think it's an electrical issue of the base. i wonder if anybody knows if it's possible buy just that part, i would hate to buy new kettle just because of bad connection.

How do I clean


Fill kettle until 3/4 full with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Boil and allow to stand overnight.

Empty solution from kettle. Fill the kettle with clean water, bring to boil and discard water. Repeat and the kettle will be ready for use.

Or you can use a proprietary kettle descaler, which is available at most hardware stores.

Switch has stopped working, kettle will not heat water


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.
