Light powers on, but water does not heat

Aroma AWK-125S Electric Kettle

A while ago myAroma electric kettle from target stopped working- if I flip the switch the light powers on, but it does not heat the water. I'm presuming the heating element has failed- does anyone know anything about taking apart kettles and obtaining/replacing the components? Also any other ideas of what it could be- like a blown fuse that would be an easy fix? I know nothing about these kettles so at a loss here.

Is this a good question?

Do you have it disassembled? Most likely a thermistor acting as a fuse. If you have it apart, post some images with your question.

I hear you on that. I am all for giving it a shot. I'll check local garage sales and Goodwill stores and see if I can come up with something.

So I finally found time today to take it apart, and saw nothing immediately wrong with it- in true repair form, the kettle magically worked again after my taking it apart and putting it back together again. I'm guessing probably a faulty lead or something, don't know for certain, but at least I have tea.
