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.

If the 'neon' light is on, the power is getting to the kettle, so if its not heating up then the element must have broken.
This kettle has a little white trip switch inside the 'socket' of the kettle (not the base unit). If its not heating, light is not on and the plug fuse is OK, then poke the white trip until it clicks.

This could be just an issue with the contacts of the base not meeting the contacts of the kettle and no power is delivered. Cleaning may help it. This could also be an issue with the switch. Internally the switch completes the circuit by 'bridging' the conductors found inside. It could be the conductors are not touching each other. If refitting the switch will not help yo may have to replace it. If you have a continuity tester you may check continuity of the circuit from the end of the coil down to its corresponding terminal on the pot while the switch is at the 'on' position. Same goes with the other to check if the switch is good. Test also continuity from the switch to the plug to test of contact between the kettle and base is good.
