Problems with Breville SK500XL Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle

I poured water into my kettle while the element was hot, it made a clicking noise and never worked again. I'm thinking fuse? Are these problems able to be fixed?

There's a thermal cutout that trips if the regular safety switch isn't enough. According to the manual, if the thermal cutout trips you have to send it back to Breville for servicing.

That may be what happened, if just letting it cool down and trying again didn't work.

    This site won't let me add additional information. There is one thing you can do-- the regular safety switch is supposed to reset when you take the kettle off the base and then put it back on. It is possible that it has gotten gunked up. Look inside the socket on the bottom of the kettle, you may see two white plastic levers. Give 'em a gentle poke with a pencil eraser or something like that and then put it back on the base. It may then work.

I think I broke the element when I poured cold water into a heated kettle. Is there a fix for this?


No. Can't happen. Have a Bosch. Always forget to add water before turning on, never ever went wrong. Even if I poured cold water into it 10 sec later. Take it back where you bought it and ask for a refund, or for another one. These are built to withstand these impacts. That's what I'd do for sure.

Red light's on... but no hot water!


HI,

OK, inside the unit there are three items, the heating element, thermostat, and thermal fuse.What has happened is the element got too hot and the thermal fuse opened.There is no reset button.In some cases you may run across a defective heating element or thermostat but its not common.The fix would probably be replacement of the thermostat and thermal fuse.For this, you would have to contact a small appliance repair center in your area.

Goodluck,

How to clean my Braun electric kettle


Hi, follow the instruction below to clean it up...

Unplug the tea kettle from the wall outlet, and detach the plug from the kettle.

Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar into the kettle, and fill the kettle halfway with hot water.

Agitate the kettle so the vinegar mixture hits the sides of the kettle walls, and let the water sit for 20 minutes.

Discard the vinegar water, and scrub the interior of the kettle gently with a nylon sponge.

Rinse the kettle with hot water, and repeat as needed until all buildup is removed. Let the kettle air-dry before inserting the cord back into the kettle.

Why is this kettle so noisy


Kettles generally do this, Here's why: As it's heating up, the water next to the element turns to gas and starts to rise to the top. Since the gas bubbles are small at first, they turn back to water before reaching the surface and water rushes in to fill the space - this is what creates the noise. When the element gets quite hot, however, it can convert the water to gas more quickly which creates bigger bubbles that float to the top and burst into the air.
So, the longer it takes to heat up, the longer it makes noise. Some kettles have a more powerful element that simply gets to the second stage more quickly. The 'cordless' ones like yours have a smaller connection from the power to the element and it takes a bit longer. Worthwile, considering the convenience, in my opinion.

sounds like there's water in the element. Empty it out and let it dry out completely for a few days, and then try it again.
If the element is a concealed element (ie- you can't see the coils when you open the lid up) then there's probably a water leak into the sealed compartment.
Contact the manufacturer for a recommended repairer.

Sediment in my electric tea kettle


it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................
