A special customer that asked me to do a repair for, the customer is my mom. She had this heating kettle that stopped working and she wanted me to get it fixed. I offered her to buy a new one but she insisted on getting it repaired and may be later on she will buy a new one.

When I powered on the kettle the red light did not come on to start heating so I took the bottom plastic off

to check the continuity of the AC line going to the main switch and to the heating element because I checked the base and it was giving out 220 AC volts.

From the look of it, I could see some black burn marks on the left side of the connection and it could be the main fault of this heating kettle.

I took three screws off and I was able to take out the whole connection for check up.

I put everything back together for check up and tested the heating kettle and it was working fine. The red light came on and when I added water to it and turned it on, it was boiling just fine.

I took it up stairs to my mom and she was thrilled that it is up and running. An easy repair job for a special mom.

Mission Accomplished.

    Glad that you were able to fix your mom's water heater!
    My Silvercrest 230VAC 2200-2400 Watt water-kettle probably uses this same base unit. So it is good to know that it probably also is fixable in case it also starts to fail working.

      Albert: my mom was so happy with it and to my surprise, the kettle is still working fine. yes these are fixable but alot of people here they do not bother with the repair simply because they are cheap to buy. have a blessed day
