I got a Delongi Mic form argos too ,model ED8525S-SBD, sounds like a similar problem to what happened to it last year. Issue is that the bulb explodes (mainly due to the very strong spring on the door I think) leaving filament lieing on the metal chassis, hence the trip switch in your fuse box trips.
Didn't manage to find a replacement bulb but at least if you remove the old bits then it will get the machine back up and running and stop the trip tripping!
Take off the top by removing the 4or 5 screws around the outer edge at the back. The bulb sits directly behind the front panel inside its own metal chassis. There is a diamond shaped black plastic flange which the 2 power wires feed onto. 2 metal lugs hold this inside the chassis. straighten the lugs and the bulb holder pulls out. Even with the bulb removed I think there was a blown fuse and I had a further issue with the turntable not turning(this feeds off the same circuit as the bulb). So maybe Argos were right - the machine only cost £80 at the end of the day!

Hi there - you have to vacuum the filter several times. You can pull it out of the back left hand side of the unit. Vacuum it several times, and then start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%. It will kick in after a bit, and then you can start adjusting the humidity level to where you would normally use it.
Sometimes - after you have vacuumed the filter, it still doesn't work. I used my fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in until it's completely dry.
This will work! Cheers... E

Either the switch or the wire had a bit of a meltdown. The problem isn;t fixing it , it is getting the right switch. Delonchi is not that bad for support so they might be able to get the switch if you can replace it yourself. If you have to send it away then it may not be worth fixing it if you have to pay shipping etc.
I'd be tempted to bypass the switch and just unplug it like other kettles when it boils.

SOURCE: My kettle is broken -
I quite agree with you, if the element is not good, then it should be the switch or some sort of wire disconnection inside the kettle. There are some wires that goes from the switch to the heating element, this needs to be checked and observed.
Since you are able to detect the fault, then you can go ahead and get a tool. believe me, its going to be an easy thing to fix because, there are no panels whatsoever in the kettle. Its just going to be the element, switch, and wires that went from the element to the switch.
Before you get the tool, make sure you know the exact size/category of tool that will enable you successfully disassemble the kettle with damaging the screws or whatsoever that is holding it together.
I wish you the best of luck.
