Question about Chef's Choice 1.75-qt. International Cordless Electric Kettle. by Che
The switch paddle wont stay down at all. the exception is when the kettle base is off. (not the base with attached cord that the kettle is lifted off of to pour. instead the base of the kettle, which I disassembled). obviously I shouldn't use the kettle with bottom removed but it only works that way. otherwise the paddle switch pops back up as soon as I push it down. the kettle stopped working after maybe 2 years from purchase. the paddle would stay down or a couple seconds before I tightened the screws in the bottom compartment after unscrewing the base. that was even with the base cap on. then I plugged it in and depressed the switch paddle the and it stopped even doing that, including after unplugging. I don't understand if or how connecting the kettle to power would make a difference after I unplugged it. anyway, my question, again, is how to make the power switch stay down until the kettle boils (or at all for that matter). Thanks.

SOURCE: Stopped Working!
Have had same problem several times. My fix was to remove the five screws on the underside of the pot and lube all the plastic linkage with WD-40. Apparently the linkage gets a bit warped with heat. The pot lasted about five years and today the switch contacts melted inside. I doubt that parts are available, so...

stop using it. If the kettle boils dry it could damage it irrepairably, or worse, start a fire. It sounds like the switch is dodgy, look into getting it replaced, or just replace the kettle.

It sound like the temperature sensor that switches the kettle off when it has reached the correct temperature is faulty. It would probably be cheeper to replace than repair
