Okay. I took the base off the kettle (made a special screwdriver). Saw that one of the contacts was loose on its 'swage'. Used a pin punch to re-swage it. Bingo! it worked.

Kettle is not working. Totally shut off, no lights, no heat , nothing. Kettle only year old doesnt seem right to me that i am replacing a year old kettle. Appreciate you assistance. Mrs Nagy

Mrs Nagy, they do not make things like they use to, it is getting quite common for small appliance to break down after one year, you would almost swear it is built into them to garnade after warranty is up.
the most common problem, the electric cord itself breaks either at the plug or at the entry point at base of kettle, do a wiggle test on the wire to see if it makes a contact, just be careful of a shock hazard, do not do this if you see any bare wire at all.

There seems to be a loose connection between base and bottom of kettle . At first I could press down on the pot and it would start heating . Now I can

If it uses a detachable base to the kettle tank with electrical contacts, sometimes the base or kettle connector must be replaced. You will need the proper tools and wire connectors to be able to replace these parts.

Technically speaking... These are not worth servicing.

Where can i purchase a replacement heating element for my Sunbeam classic electric kettle

Do a google search on the web for Sunbeam support. Get in touch with them to find out where they have a dealer that can sell parts for their products.

You will need the proper crimp tools and connectors to connect the new element.

Take note that some of these appliances were designed to not be serviceable. When you call Sunbeam, they will be able to tell you that, and if they can see replacement parts for your kettle.

Many times when I had a bad heating element in a kettle, I found the therm fuse also had to be changed.

My sunbeam electric kettle will not work

I can sympathise, I have had three go wrong in the last few months! In every case it was the element, I suspect it will be the same with yours and there is not much you can do except replace the kettle.

If the plug has a fuse, you could try changing it, but it didn't make any difference with mine. Try to keep the element free of scale, that shortens their life even more. I don't believe it is worth buying an expensive kettle, they don't seem to last any longer than the cheapies.

Sunbeam electric kettle: model 5739-33 is just out of warranty.Went to use this kettle this morning, no blue 'on' light and no joy.Opened to cover to be sure all wires are connected, everything looks okay....


In this case i think the element went out. Common with those. Yes i believe in this case it is not worth the cost and trouble to even attempt to fix it. Here is the cheapest place I found from a trusted store to get another one, and of course can have it shipped if you want. Target on line, For your convenience i put this link below and they have some that are a close out, that you cab get for $17.99 I hope this helps you , to bring the Joy Back :) Just copy and paste that link in your browser, should take you to the right section.

Does not seal when water is added. Water drips out

Filled Hot Shot with vinger, let it flow through at 15 minute intervals for a couple of hours.

Apparently the water here had lime and removed the buildup that was causing the leak.
