Please make this steps for test for fix it. God bless you

  1. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.
  2. For appliances with a removable cord, use contact cleaner, fine sandpaper, a small file or emery board, or a brass brush to carefully clean the terminal pins located where the cord connects to the appliance.
  3. Remove screws and/or clips to access controls on the unit or the removable cord. Clean the controls with contact cleaner, sandpaper, or file, being careful not to damage them or loosen parts
  4. Remove screws and/or clips to access the heating elements. Use a multimeter to test for continuity and replace any faulty element.
  5. To adjust the heat control, follow the steps below.
  6. To service the heat control, follow the steps below.
Adjust the heat control:
  1. Use a candy thermometer to verify the appliance's actual heat against its indicated heat. If the cooking appliance cooks with liquids (fry pan, wok, etc.), add water to the half-mark to test.
  2. Adjust the heat indicator on the control or adjust the temperature-adjustment screw (if available) to match the unit's actual heat.
  3. Recheck the actual temperature against the indicated temperature and readjust as needed.
Service the heat control:
  1. Unplug the control and open the housing. Set a multimeter on RX1 (resistance times 1) and touch the thermostat terminals with the probes. In the on position, the meter should read near zero ohms.
  2. Clean any contacts to remove food or corrosion, then polish with fine sandpaper or steel wool. If the contacts have only a little debris, use contact cleaner.
  3. If the heat control still doesn't work correctly, replace it with an exact replacement part

My Hamilton beach 40996 kettle Suddenly it stopped boiling. The on button lights up and reads temp but never boils. It worked and then suddenly stopped. Any chance this is a program problem somehow?


What a crazy over-complicated kettle!
Disc element kettles do tend to have a limited life that is a small fraction of the lifespan of standard kettle elements. The ones I have had usually only last until the guarantee has expired. To discover whether it is the kettle or the base it will be necessary to use a multimeter to check the supply from the base.

How do I fix the lid.


Maybe It is physically damaged, and there is a very slight chance of getting it fixed. Better try the new Hamilton Beach 40880 version. Usually, Electric kettles don't last more than a year if you use it regularly.

Hamilton Beach 40996Z kettle is displaying an "E1" error code


That appears to be a thermistor problem. The thermistor controls the temperature and is normally not user-replaceable. Call the 800 number for verification and possible replacement of the kettle.

Oster kettle not working


Ultimately, how I ended up fixing my Oster 5965 and Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric 40898 kettles that had the same problems as you (Nothing would work; no heat, no buttons would light up) was by taking apart the bottom screws (Be warned, for only one screw I needed a "Spanner Insert Bit"). I jiggled the connectors as I rang them out with my multimeter and everything seemed to work. Leaving the bottom off I retested the kettle and it just worked. I reassembled the parts and made my happy wife a cup of English Tea.

It won't turn on when I push down the switch. It worked perfectly minutes before.
