When I got up this morning, the hot water pot (electric kettle, or whatever you want to call it) wouldn’t heat. I checked that the GFCI hadn’t tripped. I checked that other things in the same power strip were functioning. I took the pot off the stand and reseated it several times (which worked last time it went flaky). Nothing helped.
I had to resort to heating water for tea in the microwave this morning. Shocking, I know. I replaced the water pot this afternoon. I was good, though — I didn’t buy the really fancy one with all the different temperature settings!
