sounds like the thermostat. can you bypass it (ie connect the two wires together) and make it run all the time? If so, replace the thermostat

Hi, well inside the kettle is an inexpensive thing called a thermal fuse, this is a device that turns the unit off if overheats or goes over a certain temperature.
Sometimes these go faulty and shut down at too low a temperature, or are just faulty, ... now it can be that or perhaps even the thermostat, (The actual temperature Controller) well this maybe faulty, or the even sensor, the Thermistor, for the thermostat.
The only way to tell or fix these types of things is to replace the components concerned and see if there is a change?
