Yep. Very Helpful. I also had to disconnect both casings for the bulb and the switches. Then, I had to pull the bulb out of the tower, then push with both hands, ever so slightly, then twist twice to the left, then the bulb came out. Thanks for your help.

You might have to press down on the bulb and then rotate it slightly before pulling it outward. Try both directions. Keever

Leakage problem at the bottom? Toastess International Kettle Model: TJK-103...


Leakage problem at the bottom…
Toastess International Kettle
Model: TJK-103 120V, 60 Hz, 1500 W
She was complaining that our kettle was leaking a bit at the bottom.
Warranty is over.
Here is what I did to fix the problem.
Unplug the kettle and empty it completely.
Remove excess residual water inside.
Remove the bottom cover by removing the screws holding it.
Gently remove the plastic ring screwed in place.
Now you will be able to put your hand inside the kettle and push the bottom out, toward the outside of the unit.
Take out the rubber seal and clean it. Ours was full of fine residue…
Gently dry it out and lube it with tiny bit of silicon.
Clean the inside part of the kettle before putting everything back together.
Make sure that you don’t squeeze any wires inside.
With a lot of patience, put everything back in place.
Make sure that the seal is perfectly installed. You can see it looking trough the plastic.
Kettle is now fixed and she is happy! ;-)

Kettle stoped working...


After the warranty was over, our beautiful electric kettle just stopped working.
Toastess International Kettle
Model: TJK-103 120V, 60 Hz, 1500 W
Here is what I did to fix the problem.
Unplug the kettle and empty it completely.
Remove excess residual water inside.
Remove the bottom cover by removing the screws holding it.
Check the wires inside, the ones connected to the heat element.
On our kettle, one of them was completely burned off and disconnected.
So I replaced it with a heavy duty equivalent copper wire and sauder it in place.
Make sure that you do a good job installing and replacing the new copper wire.
Kettle is now fixed and working perfectly.

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.

"On" switch blinks, kettle won't heat


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.

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.
