Question about Bodum Kitchen Appliances - Others
I paid a lot of money for my kettle and took great care of it over the years. However, somehow it has developed a small leak in the bottom rim. Is there any way that this can be repaired? I know it has to soldered somehow, but the solder to repair it is a particular silver type and from what I understand, quite expensive. I don't care how much it cost to repair it, I just want to know is there any place or anyone who specializes in this type of repair or it is a DIY job?
It will be hard to find a repairman and certainly not a DIY soldering project. That said, I would crazy glue the bottom rim thoroughly before giving up. Suggest get some idea from a reputable hardware/houseware store. Bev, Sorry no solution that's easy!

it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................

Some switches are called momentary and others are the click on and click off type.
It could be a problem with the switch if is is the click on type.
It could be a relay that "seals in" when you press the on off switch to on.
By "seal in" I mean, the kettle is wired so that when the relay coil energizes, it closes a contact when it is electrified and becomes an electric magnet and the energy that was going through the on off button, is now going through the closed contact on the relay.
If you don't here a clicking sound like you used to, it could be a fuse inside inside of the electrical box on or by the kettle.
I don't know by the information, if this is a household small appliance or commercial?
Even if household, it should have the same basic setup.
This may be of some help to you
What About The Kettle?
Despite being metal the kettle is cool touch (a tough special grade plastic interior). A good safety feature is that the kettle will only switch on when the lid is closed, there is a special lid release button. The kettle also has automatic overheat protection. Of course the kettle is cordless and has cord storage in its base. Water quality? Well, it's better if you use filtered water, but with this kettle it is even better - it has a removable stainless steel limescale filter in the spout!

Just a bit of clarification; the lights and heating element are both downstream of the thermal protection ( I had mine apart and had a look). Therefore the lights would be off if the thermal protection had kicked in.
Lights on but no heat means element has a problem. Could be loose wire but more likely burnt out. If you have a tamper proof TORX bit you can take the bottom cover off and check for continuity through the element. Isolate the lights from the element so your meter is not accidentally seeing continuity through the lights.
