but you the customer is saying when you
switch on the power the light is glowing
but it is taking very long for the water
to heat up it's not heating up at all I
think the issue is with a heating
element because the supply points are
okay why don't you have a look at it
friends this was one cause but there can
be many problems that an electric kettle
can encounter let me show you how to
inspect all the parts of an electric
kettle welcome to this session on
troubleshooting and repairing of an
electric kettle in this session you will
be able to troubleshoot an electric
kettle repair an electric kettle
valium friends Raju is confused but he
had just fixed one last week friends
there are many types of cattle available
in the market but they all function in
the similar pattern
let us understand the working of a
kettle through this circuit diagram when
the power switch is on the supply from
the switch flows to the heating element
the supply to the heating element is cut
off when the prescribed temperature
rating is reached
let us keep our tools and equipment
ready for troubleshooting and fixing
nyan desktop
screwdriver
some wiring cables
why a stripper
plier
multimeter

test lamp
friends never forget your personal
protective equipment like your what are
these no gloves and your rubber shoes
even while troubleshooting and repairing
of equipments remember gloves and your
shoes so Raju you now know what parts
can go wrong in an electric kettle
the input supply points that includes
the power on switch plug and the cord
then next is the auto cutoff switch and
then the heating element come join me
and raise you on the troubleshooting
tasks
friends let us first inspect the supply
points there are two supply points one
on the kettle and the other one on the
outlet plug socket
let us first check the supply points on
the kettle
always remember to pour water in the
kettle before you switch on the kettle
the supply is on
and the power on switch is functioning
so let us now see the procedure
the next input supply point the plug and
the cord
step one check the plug guard for any
insulation damages
you
step two check for any visual damages in
the cord and plug
replace the cord if it is broken or has
open insulation in this case the cord is
okay
step 3 check for loose connections or
open insulation in the guard unit
locate the screws for opening the cord
unit below the kettle baseplate using a
screwdriver open the screws and remove
the cord unit cover
step four disconnect god terminals from
the kettle
you
step 5 check the code using a test lamp
connected in series
you
to check the code you need to check both
the phase and neutral wire one by one
first check the phase terminals of the
cord
place the cut wire connected in series
on the phase terminal of the god and
phase terminal of the test lamp on the
phase terminal of the plug the test lamp
glows so the phase terminals are okay
next check the neutral terminals of the
god
place the cut wire connected in series
on the neutral terminal of the cord
and place the phase terminal of the test
lamp on the neutral terminal of the plug
the test lamp glows so the neutral
terminals are okay
similarly check the earthing of the cord
place the cut wire connected in series
on the earthing of the god
place the phrase terminal of the test
lamp on the earthing of the plug and
the test lamp glows so the earnings are
also okay and this confirms that the
plug cord is okay
case in any of the checks if the test
lamp does not glow then the cord plug is
faulty replace the cord plug
you
now let us check the kettle again with
water
step 6 pour water in the kettle a little
above minimum level
you
step 7 plug the cattle to the outlet
socket
step 8 switch on the socket power
you
step 9 switch on the kettle
in this case the kettle power switch
closed then there is no fault in the
supply point at the kettle end so there
is a problem with the heating element
for the water not heating
step then
of the cattle power
step 11 switch off the outlet power
step 12 unplug the kettle
here is a chart which sums up the
inspection of supply points
you
let us see how to inspect the auto
cutoff switch and the heating element
for faults for this we need to open the
kettle and remember to empty the water
out before you open it
step one unplug the cord from the outlet
on the switchboard
you
step two remove the kettle from the base
unit
you
step 3 locate the screws fastening the
base of the kettle
you
step four using a screwdriver open the
screws and carefully remove the base
cover
you
step 5 locate the auto cutoff switch
check it visually for any damages in
case the cutoff switch is damaged
replace the switch in this case the auto
cutoff switch has no faults so let us
check the heating element step 6
now locate the heating element in the
kettle and its connections in the kettle
step 7 using a multimeter check for
continuity
set the multimeter dial to resistance
you
place the REDD+ probe of the multimeter
on the phase terminal of the heating
element place the black negative probe
of the multimeter on the neutral
terminal of the heating element
check the reading on the multimeter in
this case the multimeter shows zero ohms
this means that the heating element is
faulty
you
step it now let us check the heating
element using a test lamp connected in
series
place the phase terminal of the test
lamp on the phase terminal of the
heating element and the cut wire
connected in series on the neutral
terminal of the heating element
the test lamp does not glow so this
confirms that the heating element is
faulty yeah the heating element is the
culprit but in this type of kettle we
cannot replace the heating element we
will have to replace the kettle friends
let us see how to assemble the kettle
back you don't want to give it back to
the customer like this right and you
need to know how to fix it back step 9
assemble the kettle
and remember if you have replaced or
repaired the kettle check for it
functioning before delivery
you
now take a look at this chart to some of
the
seizure of inspection of a kettle
you
friends there are many models of cattle
in the market ones with the thermostat
and the other ones with the cutoff
switch like in our case here the cutoff
switch plays the role of the thermostat
if the thermostat is attached you will
need to inspect it let us summarize all
the problems an electric kettle can
encounter and there are causes in the
troubleshoot guide
