Either the heating element has failed (open) or the thermal fuse has failed.
The latter is a protective device that melts at a specified temperature and acts as any other fuse does, it interrupts the flow of power.

The indicator is probably a small neon lamp (or an LED) that is across the line (or battery in your case) and does not extinguish when the thermal fuse is blown.

The fuse is not likely replaceable by the user since it is often welded into the circuit and not available at a consumer electronics outlet.

How do i clean the inside of illuma kettle

You can use Lime-Away (at Home Depot) or Apple Cider vinegar. It seems to work much better then regular vinegar. In either case let it boil if it has no element inside the water compartment, put a small clean rag inside and use a wooden spoon to clean the heavier areas. Boil it a few times, then dump it, and boil and clean with clean water twice, then put it back in service.

Kettle not boiling water

Please use a multimeter and check the continuity of the power cord , now switch on and test the coils resisitance. If there is no continuity then the coil is open and the element has to be changed.

Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and taste chemically? Any boiled in a plastic kettle in my home is fine.


the chemical taste of smell from your kettle means that the element in the kettle which provide heat to boiled the water has gone bad due to over heating

this occur when there is shortage of water level in the kettle when the power supply is on

to fix up this problem of smell and chemical taste in your boiled water you will have to make a change of the element (heater)because it has gone bad you can get a replacement of it in the store .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.
