Kettle is not working. Totally shut off, no lights, no heat , nothing. Kettle only year old doesnt seem right to me that i am replacing a year old kettle. Appreciate you assistance. Mrs Nagy

Mrs Nagy, they do not make things like they use to, it is getting quite common for small appliance to break down after one year, you would almost swear it is built into them to garnade after warranty is up.
the most common problem, the electric cord itself breaks either at the plug or at the entry point at base of kettle, do a wiggle test on the wire to see if it makes a contact, just be careful of a shock hazard, do not do this if you see any bare wire at all.

Kettle base got water .keeps do i solve problem

For the kettle's black 'charging' base:
Unplug this charging base immediately. Let it dry out completely. If you have an air hose, contact cleaner or Electronics Duster (compressed air) to displace the water.

If you're kettle stopped working after its fully dry (wait a day to be safe), make sure it's still unplugged and check the contacts in the base center for corrosion (there's the center ground pin and if you push down on it's spring-loaded ring around the ground pin you'll find two more inner/outer circumferential contacts). If you see corrosion try to clean them with a cotton swab (like Q-Tip) and alcohol and retry.

For the kettle's stainless steel 'pitcher' base:
It's the same as above but you'll need to expose the bottom for best results and to find out where's this water it leaking from.

You'll need to remove the 3 Phillips screws and one safety-screw with a "spanner insert bit" on your driver. If you don't have access to one of those and your kettle leaks when filled then I'd bet it's cheaper to replace than to repair, sorry.

My tea kettle leaks from the bottom

I just took ours apart for the same reason. In our case, it turns out that one of the two water indicators was cracked (at the top), causing the leak. The cracks were invisible without taking it apart.

There's a bigger leak near the bottom of the same piece, where a piece of the plastic is missing:


On the upside, the wk600 is really well designed - easy to take apart for repair. But I can't find replacement parts anywhere...

My teakettle is about three months old. I was thrilled with it and told all friends to get one. Suddenly it stopped heating the water. A green light goes on when i push it up to start and thats it. ...

Hi Nancy. There is a fuse or fuse like device in the bottom of your teakettle. There is also a temperature control switch which may be faulty. (if faulty, it is 'open' and the pot thinks the water is hot already) If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can probably find and replace it. You will need the replacement part and tools to install it, including pliers, screw driver and a crimp tool.

since it is three months old, you should consider contacting the manufacturer for relief on this matter.

Good luck on your repair and thanks for visiting today.

My Cuisinart electric tea kettle just stopped working - where can I get a new base? Model is discontinued CJK -17bc

I took the base apart an repaired the electrical connection. You need a special screwdriver to remove the 3 base screws. I took an old, cheap flat-head driver and filed a v-notch in the middle of the blade so it would work to remove the screws. Had to replace the connector because of corrosion. That fixed the problem for me.

Power cord overheats

The thermostat is not shutting the unit down and cycling it on/off as it should. This will cause the power cord to overheat and it will catch fire. STOP using this unit and either replace it or have it repaired. More than likely cheaper to just replace it.

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.
