SOURCE: new kettle breville

There's several home remedies you can try: Try 50% "White Vinegar", 50% Hot Water or 2 Denture tablets in warm water over night or Baking soda in warm water. These remove the alkaline, minerals, and nitrates that build up on the surface. There is even a commercial product you can use to clean it. I can't recall the name but look in any supermarket, you should be able to locate it.

SOURCE: Spares for Breville Electric Kettle

Okay. I took the base off the kettle (made a special screwdriver). Saw that one of the contacts was loose on its 'swage'. Used a pin punch to re-swage it. Bingo! it worked.

SOURCE: Breville kettle blew fuse (trip switch) now won't switch on

If the 'neon' light is on, the power is getting to the kettle, so if its not heating up then the element must have broken.

This kettle has a little white trip switch inside the 'socket' of the kettle (not the base unit). If its not heating, light is not on and the plug fuse is OK, then poke the white trip until it clicks.

SOURCE: 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.

Cushion lid release button sticks and the lid does not close


Over time the heat can causes the plastic parts to swell until the button that releases the lid gets stuck. The button can be easily & carefully pried completely out of the hole with a knife **note the orientation of the button and spring for replacement. Clean the button & hole but expect the button to still stick when re-inserted back into the kettle. Take the button back out and if you take a knife and gently carve/scrape away some of the plastic round the inside of the rim of the 'hole' and around the edge of the plastic button, you can remove enough of the plastic so that the button now moves easily back and forth in the hole releasing the lid. Good luck.

Leaking spout


The spout is electro-welded on to the shell. The most feasible solution is to replace the kettle. If you want to pay the cost for electro-welding, this would not be cost effective.

Just to let you know, electro-welding is not soldering as many people confuse it. The process is very different.

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.

Problems with Breville SK500XL Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle


There's a thermal cutout that trips if the regular safety switch isn't enough. According to the manual, if the thermal cutout trips you have to send it back to Breville for servicing.

That may be what happened, if just letting it cool down and trying again didn't work.
