A Heating Kettle That Is Not Heating Up Repaired
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.
The connection was not shinny so used a sand paper to make it better and able to connect.
I took this screw off and I was able to check the connection pin form the other side to make sure all was well but it was not.
Take a look
So I cleaned that off with a fine sand paper and it was shiny again.
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.
