Default Hawkins Classic 500 teasmade in need of tlc

Hi all,

I have just bought a lovly old Hawkins Classic LGH 500 teasmade, sadly I am struggling to get the kettle boiling. The clock keeps good time and appears to be working well. I am not sure where to start with this one. If the element is faulty it will be a nightmare to replace.

Any advice or tips appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forums.

This post shows how to test a kettle element. It requires a test meter though. The two thinner pins connect to the element and the larger pin is the earth connection.

Thank you Station X for the tips. Is there anyone out there who knows of someone able to take a look at it to trouble shoot? Really want to get it up and running.
