If your electric tea kettle is leaking water from the bottom, it is likely that the seal or gasket between the heating element and the kettle body is damaged or worn out. Here are some steps you can take to fix the issue:

  1. Unplug the kettle and let it cool down completely before attempting any repairs.
  2. Check the bottom of the kettle for any visible cracks, holes, or damage. If you find any, you may need to replace the entire kettle.
  3. If the bottom of the kettle looks fine, remove the base of the kettle by unscrewing the screws or pressing the release button (depending on the model). This will expose the heating element and the gasket.
  4. Inspect the gasket for any signs of wear or damage. If it looks worn or torn, you will need to replace it with a new gasket. You can find replacement gaskets at the manufacturer's website or an appliance parts store.
  5. Carefully remove the old gasket and clean any residue or debris from the gasket groove.
  6. Install the new gasket in the groove, making sure it is properly seated and not twisted or pinched.
  7. Reattach the base of the kettle and tighten the screws or press the release button to secure it in place.
  8. Test the kettle to ensure that it no longer leaks.
If you are uncomfortable attempting these repairs yourself, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer's customer service or a professional appliance repair technician to assist you.

Cordless electrica tea Kettle---cord on heating element gets hot when in use.

  • Be careful, the type of wire in use may melt the insulation and cause a short/shock.

My Breville water kettle stopped heating water. This is my second teakettle to do this. We have had this second kettle for about 2 years. We always were careful to make sure the kettle is off before

Unless you can take it apart and repair it yourself, it probably isn't worth the cost to have it repaired. There are several websites that sell parts, but you really have to be familiar with electrical circuits to diagnose it. Possibilities are:
1. It could be the thermostatic switch that turns it off as it reaches temperature. These are little devices with two wires connected and are in the base of the unit. these normally reset themselves but can stop working, especially if they have gotten wet.
2. It could be the cord to the unit with a wire broken at the base or the plug end.
3. It could be a thermal fuse; these are about 1/4 inch in diameter and may be hidden in an insulating sleeve near the element; they are sensitive to both heat and current.
3. It could be the element is burned out.

Oster kettle not working

Ultimately, how I ended up fixing my Oster 5965 and Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric 40898 kettles that had the same problems as you (Nothing would work; no heat, no buttons would light up) was by taking apart the bottom screws (Be warned, for only one screw I needed a "Spanner Insert Bit"). I jiggled the connectors as I rang them out with my multimeter and everything seemed to work. Leaving the bottom off I retested the kettle and it just worked. I reassembled the parts and made my happy wife a cup of English Tea.

Your tea kettle has a thermal fuse inside that more that likely got over heated, it happens all the time with irons, coffee makers, most small appliances that are electric. you have to take the bottom off to find it and replace it. does it have an indicator lamp?

My tea kettle leaks from the bottom

I just took ours apart for the same reason. In our case, it turns out that one of the two water indicators was cracked (at the top), causing the leak. The cracks were invisible without taking it apart.

There's a bigger leak near the bottom of the same piece, where a piece of the plastic is missing:


On the upside, the wk600 is really well designed - easy to take apart for repair. But I can't find replacement parts anywhere...

Black & Decker electric tea kettle leaks.

CALL Black & Decker Customer Service at 1-800-231-9786 and they will replace the unit. They will ask for the model number CK1500R from the bottom of the base and the number on the prong of the plug, mine was 626XO. They will ask you to keep the old one until you receive a letter from them about what to do with the old kettle and the new one in a separate box. All free. Cool.

It will not heat up. It needs to be reset. How?

If the unit overheated the boil-off protection is actuated. Unplug the base power cord. Let the unit cooldown if needed. Replug it in. Should work
