Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

1 Answer

My electric kettle didn't turn off after I emptied the heated water. I put it back on the base and the lights kept blinking and it was still heating with no water in it. It is only a few weeks old.

Take it back, any attempt to repair will void the warranty then you are stuck.

Sounds like the heating element has burned out or is shorted, they don't repair this type of appliance they just replace it.

Mt HB kettle 40886 has stopped working. The switch moves into place, but doesn't light up or heat up the water. Can I fix this?


Whats very common on cordless kettles is the contacts inside the base get badly caboned up, You can fix it by opening up the base, and cleaning the three contacts with a disposable nail fie. Then re-assemble and it should be fine. If you can get at it, the ring and the center contact in the bottom of the kettle can also be cleaned with the file.

Not heating up


In case you are still watching this issue for a solution - I'm afraid my assessment of the company troubleshooting support and of this particular issue is that we are out of luck.
I have the same problem. Have downloaded manuals - very little information except for use...ie, don't get them wet.
I have contacted the company - they asked me for the same information I gave them in the original troubleshooting request...
We bought a new one - fortunately on sale at Target. The blinking light is the normal indication - lack of heat and boiling is the problem.
Our new pot boils on both bases...old pot clicks and then just sits there with a blinking light - the light should blink until the temp is reached.
I intend to return the old pot to Target and move on....I suspect there is a burned out coil but, it is too hard to troubleshoot and won't be able to be fixed.
I suspect that a better (more expensive) pot might have more durable coils...but, we'll see how long the new one lasts.

Bulb in Ikon kettle no longer lights up


I had this problem recently; I think my kettle have accidentally been turned on empty. The kettle has a safety for that, described as follows in the manual:
"The kettle is fitted with a safety device, which protects against overheating should the appliance be operated with insufficient water. If this occurs the kettle will stop heating. Switch 'Off' at the power
point and allow kettle to cool before refilling. The safety device will automatically reset when the kettle has cooled down."

Then they go on to tell you that there is an additional thermal cut-out, and if that is tripped, you have to send it back to Breville for servicing. However, it might not be that bad-- it wasn't in my case.

The heating connector and control is made by Otter, here's information that I was able to find about it on their website (Otter A1 and CS7 control and connector-- I think the kettle actually uses a CS4 connector, but the thermal cut out isn't described on that data sheet):
"The A1 control integrates to 360° cordless plug with element
dry boil protection. Two bimetals spring loaded against the
element surface make a fast response during dry boil. One
bimetal disconnects the live side of the electric circuit and the
other disconnects the neutral. A latch out function prevents
dry boil cycling. This automatically resets when the kettle or
jug is lifted from the cordless base."
http://www.ottercontrols.co.uk/support-downloads/domestic-data-sheets

So what does this mean to you? If you look at the bottom of the kettle jug, there is a circular indentation that slots into the base. There are two white plastic things which I believe are part of the "latch out" described above in Otter's documentation. If you see them sticking out, they may be stuck in position instead of resetting as they should. Use something like a pencil eraser to gently poke them so they unstick, then put the jug back on the base. That should cause them to retract, and at that point your kettle should work again.

I have a Cuisinart CPK17 won't heat water and all the blue lights are flashing


I had the same issue with all lights blinking, but nothing else working (buttons would not respond or beep). I took the base off and used a small pair of pliers to bend the contact as Scott Cowen mentioned. Worked like a charm.

MG32 Cordless Electric Kettle: Power light shows on my kettle but water does not...


sounds like there's water in the element. Empty it out and let it dry out completely for a few days, and then try it again.
If the element is a concealed element (ie- you can't see the coils when you open the lid up) then there's probably a water leak into the sealed compartment.
Contact the manufacturer for a recommended repairer.

Red light's on... but no hot water!


OK, inside the unit there are three items, the heating element, thermostat, and thermal fuse.What has happened is the element got too hot and the thermal fuse opened.There is no reset button.In some cases you may run across a defective heating element or thermostat but its not common.The fix would probably be replacement of the thermostat and thermal fuse.For this, you would have to contact a small appliance repair center in your area.
