If the fuse in the mains plug or MCB at the consumer unit / fuse box keeps tripping then there probably is a fault in the kettle element or switch. If the RCD is tripping (the safety device with the test button on it) then there is an electrical leak either due to a crack in the element or water has got into the wiring, switch or power cord of the kettle.
Allow the kettle to dry out in a warm place for a day. Also check it at another power outlet to eliminate any problem with the outlet you are using.

Trying to find kettle wiring drawing 3255


To order a manual from the factory the part# is 67834. Depending on how old this is , those kettles and or similar design had a issue with the nut comming loose that holds down the thermostat thight to the bottom of the pan. The loose nut would then bounce around in there until it touches a elect.connection and ground at the same time. It will short circuit the kettle and end up welding itself in place . so when you turn the kettle on it trips the circuit rite away. you have to dissasemble it and remove it . there is a new locking type nut avalible to replace it.

Will thermostat stop kettle from overheating and blowing thermal fuse


The thermostat built into the kettle stops the kettle from heating at a prescribed temperature. usually around 425 F. This is hot enough to smoke and cause instant burns, but is the required temp for popping popcorn.

I do not know of a "thermal fuse" built into popcorn machines. Mechanical thermo stats are not flawless. they can and do malfunction, either too cold or too hot. the model popper you have is not adjustable, or repairable.

If you are tripping a electrical circuit breaker that is a different problem not related to kettle heat. It is a symptom of an overloading problem of your outlet, or a ground fault in the popcorn popper.

Kettle base got water .keeps blowing....how do i solve problem


For the kettle's black 'charging' base:
Unplug this charging base immediately. Let it dry out completely. If you have an air hose, contact cleaner or Electronics Duster (compressed air) to displace the water.

If you're kettle stopped working after its fully dry (wait a day to be safe), make sure it's still unplugged and check the contacts in the base center for corrosion (there's the center ground pin and if you push down on it's spring-loaded ring around the ground pin you'll find two more inner/outer circumferential contacts). If you see corrosion try to clean them with a cotton swab (like Q-Tip) and alcohol and retry.


For the kettle's stainless steel 'pitcher' base:
It's the same as above but you'll need to expose the bottom for best results and to find out where's this water it leaking from.

You'll need to remove the 3 Phillips screws and one safety-screw with a "spanner insert bit" on your driver. If you don't have access to one of those and your kettle leaks when filled then I'd bet it's cheaper to replace than to repair, sorry.

Our whirlpool awm5145/5 washing machine is blowing fuses where it's plugged in usually and it won't work in the plugs on the same wall but when we plug it in a different wall it will work fine?


This sounds like an overload from the Ring circuit house wiring...Most rings here in u.k. are 32 amp.this should be okay for small oven /Micowave/ kettle / if the washing machine is running at 3000watts or 12 amps and a kettle is also the same total load is 24 amps.....If the machine blows the breaker/or fuse on its own I suggest looking at the wiring on the supply socket or better still contact an Electrician......

Our popcorn machine is blowing the circuit when the kettle heat is turned on. Is there any way to fix it or any way to just buy a new kettle?


Mine is doing the same thing. Did you get yours fixed yet? If so, what was the problem? Its got to be the wiring. If you take off the bottom square wiring cover access, you will see the two main wires and a grounder all connected. Sometimes the connectors melt with the heat. Maybe that is what is causing the short.

The power switch light on my kettle comes on but it wont boil


1. Check the continuity on the power switch
2. Check to see if any thermal cut-out is open circuit
3. Check to see if the element has gone open circuit.

Any open circuit indicates the part will require replacing. Given the cost of the kettle, if the element has gone open circuit it may be worth considering replacing the kettle itself.

Fuse made a loud bang. Put in new 13a fuse and


Probably the wires inside melted together and now as shor circuit occurs it causes the fuse to blow. remove the bottom of the kettle and check the wiring. There's no rocket science, so you'll identify the problem after visual inspection.

Best of luck

Kettle does not work


you have probably re-wired the switch incorrectly or there is water in the wiring and the circuit is shorting, causing the fuses to blow. Also, is your electricity supply 120v or 240v?

Trips circuit when you turn on the Kettle heat


When the fuse blows see what else in the house is out, maybe you have the circuit overloaded. Try putting the popcorn maker on a different unused curcuit to see if it still blows. Then you will know if it is the popcorn maker.
