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: kettle not switching off
To state the obvious, the steam sensor has failed. Unless you are quite adventurous, and confident dealing with electrics, there's nothing for it but to get a new kettle (unless the kettle is still within warranty, in which case you should be entitled to a replacement of course).

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.

Testimonial: "very quick response and accurate, although i would say that i don't consider it to be a cheap kettle, and bought what i thought was a good brand"
SOURCE: No longer boiling. Light
Ur thermal fuse just got BLOWN, if u have a knowledge to repalce it, u could buy the parts in any electronic shop. Just be sure u have the same temperature value!
Hope that helps u out!

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 .
