I think I broke the element when I poured cold water into a heated kettle. Is there a fix for this?


No. Can't happen. Have a Bosch. Always forget to add water before turning on, never ever went wrong. Even if I poured cold water into it 10 sec later. Take it back where you bought it and ask for a refund, or for another one. These are built to withstand these impacts. That's what I'd do for sure.

Popcorn maker worked great for a matinee then for the evening show the kettle no longer heated up


Your kettle has had a ground fault, and damaged the switch in the process. Do not Continue to Try and use.

Take the kettle to a gold medal dealer, and replace the switch in the cabinet.

Shuts off


Does the unit shut off only before the water boils, or does it shut off and on periodically? I just fixed my friend's WK200 Braun kettle. His would shut off and on, eventually coming to a boil. During normal operation, when you press the switch, it is connected to a rod which at its other end (ie the bottom of the kettle) is able to close the circuit allowing the current to pass through the heating element. In my friend's case, the contact had become weak - I just had to slightly bend the metal pole a little bit to provide a better contact when the switch was depressed. To repair the unit, I only needed a couple of torx screwdrivers and a voltmeter to measure continuity. (note, if you bend the metal pole too much, then the circuit will always be closed even when the switch is OFF - make sure you test for an open circuit when the switch is OFF)

Kettle not switching off after boiling so carrys on boiling untill you turn it off


To state the obvious, the steam sensor has failed. Unless you are quite adventurous, and confident dealing with electrics, there's nothing for it but to get a new kettle (unless the kettle is still within warranty, in which case you should be entitled to a replacement of course).

On Off switch problem


Look under the kettle at the round circular connector in the bottom. Inside there is a small button that is depressed when the kettle is put on the base. If this is not pushed in far enough it will have problems.

The cause is that after some use the connector in the base plate collapses into the base by 1-2 mm This means the switch is not pushed in far enough.

My kettle had similar issues... I pulled the base plate apart (3 screws I think) and cut a round disk of plastic to lift the connector up by about 1-2mm and then reassembled the base.. No more issues
