The problem with your bodum kettle is not the switch but the fuse that is in the bottom of the kettle. Because you cannot stop the boiler even when it is empty, the boiler overheat and burn the fuse at the bottom. You must unscrew the 3 screws at the bottom part of the kettle (not the base), then unscrew a nut that retain the fuse in a gain to the base. cut the wires and replace the fuse by a new one (less than 2 dollars on ebay). You should not exceed the temperature of the fuse(172 C) as it will melt your boiler if there is no water. Thats why you have to put a fuse. This helps me resolve my button issue with my bodum kettle.

SOURCE: broken switch

That is correct, the flat plastic rod that pulls when you depress the on/off button is attached to a switch lever under the bottom of the handle. The rod in mine broke off right where it connects to that switch lever. You can either try and find the new or used part, Braun may have new, I have not tried their 800 number, can't hurt? I fix everything from scratch though and rebuild when I can especially if parts are scarce or obsolete. So I used some marine putty to affix the rod end back to the lever. Marine putty is a stick with two putties you roll together for a rock hard compound, awesome stuff. You can get at Wally World or hardware, auto parts, boat supply stores. I also drilled very small holes in the broken rod on each side and the lever on each side and threaded some thin stainless steel wire through, just looped it around without twisting it togethor before putting the putty over it for a permanent, wire reinforced, fix.The handle is not screwed on exception of one little torx screw at very bottom of handle on base. The handle just snaps together. The base or bottom and 3 screws do not need to be removed either for this rod and lever fix. Remove the top 'cover' piece of the handle first, then remove the two brass pins under it at top next to the on/off button second. So, the handle 'snaps' off with a lock blade knife or equivalent, get under the handle pieces with knife edge and twist the blade, it will pop off as you go, be prepared to break a few little hook pieces off underneath, they break but it seems to snap back on ok anyway. Crazy glue alone won't hold these plastic pieces together btw, try another way, wire and putty, maybe a plastic welding kit etc.. Mine works great again, once I got the lever reattached to the rod.

SOURCE: siemens porsche kettle om switch problem

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!

I have an earlier all stainless non-electric Bodum tea kettle


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!

How do I get the agitator rotate


The motor in the top of the machine should rotate the gear sticking out of the top of the cabinet when you turn the switch on. This gear should connect with a gear on the top of the shaft that sticks out of the kettle when the kettle is in the correct upright position and turning the stir rod.

Make sure the kettle is installed correctly, and the switch is in the on position. If the motor is not turning with the switch on, it is broken and should be returned to store if possible.
There are no repair parts for this brand popper, and they cannot be repaired.

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.

Sediment in my electric tea kettle


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............................................
