What were the symptoms?
What were the symptoms that made you conclude that the capacitors was the problem?
My kettle is acting very strange. Most of the time the light in the on/off button is on, but the kettle is not heating the water. Sometimes, if I leave the kettle in the base it suddenly starts boiling. Every now and then the temperature indicators starts blinking in random order. In all the kettle has become completely unreliable to the extent were I'm suspecting it is undergoing a transformation to a higher form of being ;) Could this also be the capacitors going crazy, or should I look in a different direction?
