Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
Bought the Quick Cup last yesterday, used it a couple of times very happy with it.
Got up this morning, switched the appliance on at the wall (we always switch off unnecessary appliances overnight), the light comes on red for about 1 second, then goes out. I press the button and nothing, no hot, no room temperature water just nothing comes out.
I found that after a few months of use I had to unplug the unit from the mains and plug it back in to reset it. It then ran OK until I wanted to use it again. I took it apart and found that the heating element and temperature sensor (thermistor) were attached to the electronics via copper spring clips. These had formed corrosion where they made contact. A quick clean to the restore the copper colour cured the unit. It now works every time.

As you are getting a light, then the fuse/ supply is ok .
Does it have water in it?
If not, it may be a safety cut out sensing this - and turning off.
Check the manual for any mention of a "thermostatic trip" This may be user-resettable by means of a rod or button underneath, or may need to cool down - you may even hear a click when it does.
If not - then it is likely to be a manufacturing fault within the heating element.
You should be able to return it to the shop you bought it from for a full refund.
