Bulb in Ikon kettle no longer lights up


I had this problem recently; I think my kettle have accidentally been turned on empty. The kettle has a safety for that, described as follows in the manual:
"The kettle is fitted with a safety device, which protects against overheating should the appliance be operated with insufficient water. If this occurs the kettle will stop heating. Switch 'Off' at the power
point and allow kettle to cool before refilling. The safety device will automatically reset when the kettle has cooled down."

Then they go on to tell you that there is an additional thermal cut-out, and if that is tripped, you have to send it back to Breville for servicing. However, it might not be that bad-- it wasn't in my case.

The heating connector and control is made by Otter, here's information that I was able to find about it on their website (Otter A1 and CS7 control and connector-- I think the kettle actually uses a CS4 connector, but the thermal cut out isn't described on that data sheet):
"The A1 control integrates to 360° cordless plug with element
dry boil protection. Two bimetals spring loaded against the
element surface make a fast response during dry boil. One
bimetal disconnects the live side of the electric circuit and the
other disconnects the neutral. A latch out function prevents
dry boil cycling. This automatically resets when the kettle or
jug is lifted from the cordless base."

So what does this mean to you? If you look at the bottom of the kettle jug, there is a circular indentation that slots into the base. There are two white plastic things which I believe are part of the "latch out" described above in Otter's documentation. If you see them sticking out, they may be stuck in position instead of resetting as they should. Use something like a pencil eraser to gently poke them so they unstick, then put the jug back on the base. That should cause them to retract, and at that point your kettle should work again.

Kettle will not turn off automatically. How do you remove the plastic cover at the rear of the kettle to access components without causing damage to the plastic?


It would be rare for such a task to be simply done by levering off something as the item would never have passed electricity testing authority approval for use.
Depending on the age the kettle, if it is more than 18 months old I would be thinking of simply replacing it. It is not worth trying to reset and clean bimetallic switches or replace faulty electronic sensors in such items in my opinion.
However if the purpose of the exercise is to satisfy your curiosity as to how it works...and you are willing to discard it..........just give it a couple of gentle taps with a hammer and screwdriver until it breaks open.
Of course you will have unplugged the kettle first...wont you ???

Kettle does not automatically shut off even when water is at above minimum level and boiling


I think that standards require an auto-shutoff on electric pots to keep the component from softening down. You could override the shutoff by either taping over the switch or utilizing an elastic band. You can check deep details on electric kettle review sites.

Fill with clean water to fill line. Have base plugged in. Place kettle on base and press down button on top of handle. Water should boil quickly and turn off automatically when done.
