There are different reasons why your kettle doesn't work.
2. Switch. Maybe the switch is broken
3. The kettle's circuit, maybe the wires have been corroded by the rust. (This happened in my kettle)
4. Wires maybe disconnected
5. OTHERS xD
LET's GET STARTED (Note: This applies to case # 3 and #4)
NOTE: CLICK THE PICTURE IF YOU WANT TO ENLARGE. YOU CAN USE YOUR ARROW KEYS TO NAVIGATE.
Obviously, we need to get rid off the water in our kettle, well its up to you if you want to get wet. xD. And unplug the kettle from your power source.
Now, we will aim to check the circuit or wiring of our kettle itself. IT can be found under your kettle.
Remove all the screws
Check for the corroded wires.
well, in my case, there was merely one corroded wire. :)
Remove the corroded wires and clean it. RUST IS NOT A CONDUCTOR, therefore it is an INSULATOR. Meaning, it doesn't not allow the current to pass. :) Or you can simply replace such wires if you want to. and then plug your kettle right away!
