Question about Breville Ikon Tea Kettle Electric Kettle
This can be fixed but is not always an economical repair depending on the cause.
A common issue with Breville kettles is that the electric contact between the base and the kettle will become poor through general use. Early signs of this are intermittent problems where at times the kettle makes a good contact with the base and works - other times does not.
Eventually the contact fails altogether and kettle will not work at all.
First Stay Safe!
When working with electrical items always ensure the mains supply is completely disconnected.
Inspect the base itelf to see if there is anything obstructing the contacts in the base. These contacts have a tendency to wear out or lose their shape and become unreachable for the other contacts in the bottom of the kettle. you may have to remove some non-standard head screws to get access to these.
Next have a look at the bottom of the kettle. Ensure the kettle contacts are not sticking or obstructed in any way. Use a pen or similar item to test that the movement is not compromised.
Unfortunately when these kettle to base contacts start to give trouble they can remain temperamental even after you get them working again. However if you feel competent to try this it is certainly worth investigating.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.
