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

Just a bit of clarification; the lights and heating element are both downstream of the thermal protection ( I had mine apart and had a look). Therefore the lights would be off if the thermal protection had kicked in.
Lights on but no heat means element has a problem. Could be loose wire but more likely burnt out. If you have a tamper proof TORX bit you can take the bottom cover off and check for continuity through the element. Isolate the lights from the element so your meter is not accidentally seeing continuity through the lights.

It beeps and the temperature light comes on but then it immediately fades and the kettle does not heat up.


I had the same problem after 2 years usage and found the problem to be the contacts between the kettle and base.
  • Unplug the base and using a very thin needle file clean the 3 contacts and centre pin carefully. These contacts are sprung metal, so be careful to apply slight pressure in a clockwise direction.
  • Next empty and upend the kettle, now use a fine abrasive pad (I used a piece of 'wet and dry' paper) and gently clean the surface of the contact rings.
  • Clean away all dusty residue, this should cure the problem.

Mt HB kettle 40886 has stopped working. The switch moves into place, but doesn't light up or heat up the water. Can I fix this?


Whats very common on cordless kettles is the contacts inside the base get badly caboned up, You can fix it by opening up the base, and cleaning the three contacts with a disposable nail fie. Then re-assemble and it should be fine. If you can get at it, the ring and the center contact in the bottom of the kettle can also be cleaned with the file.

I have a Cuisinart CPK17 won't heat water and all the blue lights are flashing


I had the same issue with all lights blinking, but nothing else working (buttons would not respond or beep). I took the base off and used a small pair of pliers to bend the contact as Scott Cowen mentioned. Worked like a charm.

Aroma AWK-161 Water Kettle not turning on


A power outage happened and all of a sudden Aroma kettle was not turning on. I tried different outlets that I knew worked... nothing. So, problem was certainly the kettle. I gave some good sold raps to the base of the kettle and then some to the base that plugs into wall. Walla! The kettle is now working. I pray it continues. And, from now on I'm unplugging base after each use :)

I need directions for the TFal Vitesse cordless electric kettle. 7845162 Thanks


Fill with clean water to fill line. Have base plugged in. Place kettle on base and press down button on top of handle. Water should boil quickly and turn off automatically when done.

On Off switch problem


Look under the kettle at the round circular connector in the bottom. Inside there is a small button that is depressed when the kettle is put on the base. If this is not pushed in far enough it will have problems.

The cause is that after some use the connector in the base plate collapses into the base by 1-2 mm This means the switch is not pushed in far enough.

My kettle had similar issues... I pulled the base plate apart (3 screws I think) and cut a round disk of plastic to lift the connector up by about 1-2mm and then reassembled the base.. No more issues

HD 4651/C Electric Kettle Handle switch lights but wont heat


This maybe the thermo fuse, and or the heating element that is defective. These parts must be properly replaced for safety issues.

Usually these appliances are not worth to service.

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


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.
