Question about Chef's Choice 677 Cordless Electric Kettle

1 Answer

WK 200 just stopped working - its almost new!

My kettle is almost new, and after making a cup of tea one morning it wouldn't heat water when I went to make another cup a few minutes later. It didn't overheat or anything. I am an experienced kettle user, so I'm wondering what could be wrong. I've checked all the various metal connections and they all seem to be in the proper position. Nothing bent or corroded. Again this is like NEW! The red light comes on when I push the on button down, but the coil doesn't heat up. Please help! thanks, Dan DEvans@terra.com.mx Somehow the switch of mine got hit and was left on overnight. Now the light turns on but it won't heat up :(

My Breville water kettle stopped heating water. This is my second teakettle to do this. We have had this second kettle for about 2 years. We always were careful to make sure the kettle is off before


Unless you can take it apart and repair it yourself, it probably isn't worth the cost to have it repaired. There are several websites that sell parts, but you really have to be familiar with electrical circuits to diagnose it. Possibilities are:
1. It could be the thermostatic switch that turns it off as it reaches temperature. These are little devices with two wires connected and are in the base of the unit. these normally reset themselves but can stop working, especially if they have gotten wet.

2. It could be the cord to the unit with a wire broken at the base or the plug end.
3. It could be a thermal fuse; these are about 1/4 inch in diameter and may be hidden in an insulating sleeve near the element; they are sensitive to both heat and current.

3. It could be the element is burned out.

I think I broke the element when I poured cold water into a heated kettle. Is there a fix for this?


No. Can't happen. Have a Bosch. Always forget to add water before turning on, never ever went wrong. Even if I poured cold water into it 10 sec later. Take it back where you bought it and ask for a refund, or for another one. These are built to withstand these impacts. That's what I'd do for sure.

Will not heat water


Ultimately, how I ended up fixing my Oster 5965 and Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric 40898 kettles that had the same problems as you (Nothing would work; no heat, no buttons would light up) was by taking apart the bottom screws (Be warned, for only one screw I needed a "Spanner Insert Bit"). I jiggled the connectors as I rang them out with my multimeter and everything seemed to work. Leaving the bottom off I retested the kettle and it just worked. I reassembled the parts and made my happy wife a cup of English Tea. Just one thing though. There's no Numerals that ever lit up on my kettle so not sure what you meant by that, sorry.

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 the inside of tea pot (scale deposits)?


Vinegar is very good at removing scaly deposits. Heat white/clear vinegar just as you would normally heat the water for your tea. After heating the vinegar, pour out and rinse thoroughly with water. If there are still deposits after this first attempt, use vinegar once again. Once you are satisfied that all the deposits have been removed, heat water in the tea pot 2-3 times to remove any smell or taste from the vinegar (before using for tea).

Sediment in my electric tea kettle


it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................

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.
