Question about Breville BKE820XL Electric Kettle
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.

The switch does not get red because reach of adequate temperature is not detected. The problem is either thermostat or element. Both parts are tested using a multimeter set on Ohms to read impedance. if the part reads open, then it must be replaced.
Problem will be locating the part.
