Best guess, the bi metallic leaf style switch. The contacts having arced in closing over time became roughened. Till they sorta welded together.
You can find it & simply pop apart. Take a womans nail file or sand paper & smooth the contacts. It will go another 5 years!

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!

Hi
Make sure that the lid is securely on. Otherwise its the replacement of the auto bi metalic strip which turns the kettle off

Send them model number
PDC code (on bottom of kettle)
your name and address
where and when device was purchased
They can send you a part or send you a FEDEX label for a warranty repair.

This is a very common problem

SOURCE: Automatic switch off not working when water reached boiling.

There is no do it yourself fix for this problem. However, placing a folded cloth on top of the kettle (covering the spout) will cause it to switch off quicker, as it increases the pressure inside the kettle.

SOURCE: water kettle does not boil water

I had the exact same problem. The kettle would warm water but not boil. I bet you have hard water - try putting 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water mix and turning it on. I did this, fixed the problem!

The switch does not automatically turn off when the water boils. If left alone all the water will boil out.


The switch has to turn off when the water boils as the heat generated must cut off the switch. If this wont work the bimetal is not working and the switch is not responding.
You will need to replace the switch. Please contact the dealership for the spare.

My kettle suddenly stopped working, it still shows a red light when you go to boil the water but the water does not boil. its only a few months old so what would cause this problem


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.

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.

Steam (smoking?) at switch on DeLonghi cordless electric kettle


Either the switch or the wire had a bit of a meltdown. The problem isn;t fixing it , it is getting the right switch. Delonchi is not that bad for support so they might be able to get the switch if you can replace it yourself. If you have to send it away then it may not be worth fixing it if you have to pay shipping etc.

I'd be tempted to bypass the switch and just unplug it like other kettles when it boils.
