When I press the red on switch it doesn't switch the kettle on. It used to "click" but now it doesn't . It was an expensive kettle so I'm loathed to buy a new one if this can be repaired. Can it? Could I repair it myself?

Re: 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!

Check the obvious, 13amp fuse, if intact connect a multimeter switched to ohms across the live and nuetral pins of the plug (not plugged into mains) the reading should be between 0.05 ohms and 1.5 ohms if higher the element has burnned out or the over temperature sensor has activated. to determine which you will need to open up the bottom of the kettle and expose the wiring. using the above multimeter with the same settings locate the heating element this will have two terminals protruding from the water compartment thes will have eithe screw or spade connections, connect the multimeter across these two terminals and check for the readings above if correct the problem is the over temperature sensor if not then the problem is the heating element. the over temperature sensor will be a circular disk with two terminals clamped to the underside of the water compartment.

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.
