There may be a fault with the thermstat or the heating element.

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 cannot take off the lid of the Pro chef and manual is unclear. How do I unlatch it?


Manual Pro Chef PU 100
I have received the hot water boiler, but it does not stop boiling the water. Instead of going to "Keep Warm", the machine continues to boil the water indefinitely. We left the boiler on and came back after 2 hours, and it didn't stop heating the water. Therefore, I refilled the boiled, turned off the machine, unplugged it, plugged it back in, and then turned it back on. The water continues to boil without going to "Keep Warm". I require a solution to the issue or a replacement as soon as possible.

Not heating up


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.

I have a Cuisinart CPK17 won't heat water and all the blue lights are flashing


I had the same issue with all lights blinking, but nothing else working (buttons would not respond or beep). I took the base off and used a small pair of pliers to bend the contact as Scott Cowen mentioned. Worked like a charm.

Will not make entire pot???


Look at all the lines and at the hole the hot water comes out ,there might be some blockage somewhere.Also try and put a mix of 6 oz of white vinegar and then 26oz of water and stop it after it starts for about 1 minute or two the let the mix sit in the machine. Hopefully there is scale built up on the heating coil and the mix of water and vinegar will most likely do the trick . Also look for blocked hole where the hot water comes ,Check the unit out for something blocking any holes. good luck.

My teakettle is about three months old. I was thrilled with it and told all friends to get one. Suddenly it stopped heating the water. A green light goes on when i push it up to start and thats it. ...


Hi Nancy. There is a fuse or fuse like device in the bottom of your teakettle. There is also a temperature control switch which may be faulty. (if faulty, it is 'open' and the pot thinks the water is hot already) If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can probably find and replace it. You will need the replacement part and tools to install it, including pliers, screw driver and a crimp tool.

since it is three months old, you should consider contacting the manufacturer for relief on this matter.

Good luck on your repair and thanks for visiting FixYa.com today.

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).

Stopped Working!


Have had same problem several times. My fix was to remove the five screws on the underside of the pot and lube all the plastic linkage with WD-40. Apparently the linkage gets a bit warped with heat. The pot lasted about five years and today the switch contacts melted inside. I doubt that parts are available, so...
