SOURCE: 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.

My electrical water kettle does not heat water...how to solve the problem?


Check the kettle at another socket to ensure the socket isn't the problem.
Replace the fuse in the plug.
If the power flex is removable from the kettle, check the terminals in the connector havn't become burned.
The chances are that the element may have burned out in the kettle and in this case it probably isn't worth repairing.

How do I clean the contact points between kettle and platform?


PROBLEM:

My problem was similar for the Cuisinart KUA-17.  I clicked down the on switch and it stayed down.  However, the light and power together seemed finicky.  That is, the light came on if I positioned the kettle in the base correctly, but then it sometimes went off without triggering the switch to pop up.  When the light went off while the switch remained down the water never boiled, but when I was lucky to position it such that the light remained on, the water did boil and the switch popped up ... as it should have.  It seemed to be getting more and more finicky and difficult to position correctly ... so I took it apart.
SOLUTION:
First of all, the base has screws that take a triangle screwdriver which I don't have.  So I found a small flat-headed screwdriver (like one you'd use for glasses) that just fit along one side of the triangle.  I was able to get three base screws out this way and since I expected to need to do this again in the future, I used my dremel to grind a larger flat-headed screwdriver slot in each.  It's been about a year and a half since I fixed it last time and this time I was glad I had the slots.
Once you get the plastic base off, you'll see the mechanics of the switch.  There are two wires that both turn on the light and power the heater element.  Where the wires connect to the switch mechanism, there are two metal tabs that stick out in opposite directions from the center.  When the switch is pushed down, you can see these two tabs move.  They are each moving to touch a contact and complete the electrical circuit.  My problem was they were not making a good contact.  The contacts are hidden behind the tabs.  All I had to do was bend the contacts one millimeter closer (i.e. as little as possible) so that they would make a good contact.  The only other trick was I had to remove the switch mechanism from the bottom of the kettle to do this.  Then I just used the same small flat-headed screwdriver to bend the contact as in the picture below.
