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.

Information to question already asked the fact the power is lighting both lights up but no noise of starting to boil does this kettle need a new element and if so where can a get it fixed.


You are not specifying what make it is but you hardly get replacement elements for kettles any more. The fact that you can see that power is available at the kettle it is indicating that it might be the element being defective. Had it been it switched on without any water in it? If it is the old type where the electrical cord gets plug in at the kettle check if it is well plugged in otherwise it is time for a new kettle.

Kettle won't work after switching on with no water inside


It depends on how long you switched on.
*check to make sure that the switch is transmitting electricity if not...
*from my experience with kettles you will need a new element*Depending on the kind of kettle you are using check the power cable and the base of the kettle to make that there is contact between the kettle and the power cable.

Hi, I have a Bosch Private Collection Kettle. It is over a year old and has until recently been working fine. However, lately I do not feel that it boils to a high enough temperature for a long enough...


Some types of kettles use a separate power base to heat up the kettle jug. If this is the case with yours, turn the jug upside down and look. Also look at the parts on the base that touch the kettle jug contacts. If you can see the electrical contacts; mine were built on spiral rings for differing temperatures; try cleaning them with Brasso and a Q-tip (cotton swab) wiping the contacts several times to remove any tarnish and then use clean swabs to remove all traces of Brasso metal cleaner. Fill the kettle jug up to the maximum fill line and put the boiler on the maximum setting... boiling water. If the water doesn't boil... you have a more serious problem. Buy a new boiler as it isn't worth having someone fix it. Mine worked like new after I cleaned the contacts. Never immerse the jug contacts in water!!!

How to clean my Braun electric kettle


Hi, follow the instruction below to clean it up...

Unplug the tea kettle from the wall outlet, and detach the plug from the kettle.

Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar into the kettle, and fill the kettle halfway with hot water.

Agitate the kettle so the vinegar mixture hits the sides of the kettle walls, and let the water sit for 20 minutes.

Discard the vinegar water, and scrub the interior of the kettle gently with a nylon sponge.

Rinse the kettle with hot water, and repeat as needed until all buildup is removed. Let the kettle air-dry before inserting the cord back into the kettle.

My Maytag washer goes off balance whenever it's in the rinse cycle.


Hello,

Has there been any changes in it's hook-ups recently ?

The reason I ask is this, there are alot of variables that can cause unbalanced rinse cycles/washer's, one being if your water lines are reversed, hot tap to cold inlet and cold tap to hot inlet, you can experience an unbalanced situation in the rinse when "hot" water is introduced instead of "cold" water.

That, or you may also have extremely worn damper pads, oil on the chassis base, un level machine/floor, overloading, or several other possible senario's to cause an out of balance situation.

That's a start. Hope it helps, let me know please.

Good Luck

My Rheem hot water heater stopped putting out hot water. Model # 71-40D or 71-400 I was told to replace the element. How?


If you are not familiar with the element, I would get someone that is familiar with one and have them do it. It's not something I would recommend you do based on your question. There's electrical, pressurized water tank, and a whole lot of water that may cause you to have a worse bad day.

Replacement Power Cord


You can find replacement cords for many counter top appliances at most appliance and building supply stores. Try Ace, Home Depot, Lowes. Take the pot with you to make sure you are getting the correct cord.

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.
