I have seen an open heating element, or a thermo fuse cause this type of fault. Jerry G.

I'll assume that you mean a uk 3 pin plug. You can access the fuse by levering off a small plastic cover with a flathead screwdriver. Replace with another known good 13A fuse or test it (either with a continuity tester or in another appliance).

sounds as if you have a lose wire in the base or else you element has failed. Undo the bottom of the kettle and check all wires are connected to the element. If all the wires are connect i would say your element has blown.

I quite agree with you, if the element is not good, then it should be the switch or some sort of wire disconnection inside the kettle. There are some wires that goes from the switch to the heating element, this needs to be checked and observed.

Since you are able to detect the fault, then you can go ahead and get a tool. believe me, its going to be an easy thing to fix because, there are no panels whatsoever in the kettle. Its just going to be the element, switch, and wires that went from the element to the switch.

Before you get the tool, make sure you know the exact size/category of tool that will enable you successfully disassemble the kettle with damaging the screws or whatsoever that is holding it together.

I wish you the best of luck.

Most self stopping kettles have a bi-metal piece, generally in the handle or top part, which, when boiling, gets one side of the metal to expand more than the other, causing it to bend and mechanically turn off the switch. There are many causes that it can stop working- iron fatigue, corrosion, jammed switch etc that can make it stop working. In general, it <strong>wouldn't</strong> be financially worthwhile to repair it, however many people still use them when they stay in the room, since they still do a decent job of boiling the water quickly. Typically they have a safety, so the thermo-fuse will shut it before a fire starts- on your own risk. It's usually not so expensive to get a new one, so I'd go for using it temporarily til I get around to getting a new one!
