QC YSI Electric kettle inspection and testing


Basic Test:

1.Transportation drop test

2.Product Size /power cord length / Weight Measurement 

3.Bar code scan check

4.Assembly/installation check

5.Coating Adhesive Tape Test

6.Stability test

Add Max scale of water, and the power cord should be placed in the most unfavorable direction

7.High voltage test

8.Power on check 

Note that cooling 5 minutes before adding cold water

Pay attention to whether the lid is loose or can not open

9.Earth continually test

10.Power consumption check

11.Power cord strain relief test

12.Internal workmanship and critical component check

13.Rubbing test for rating label and adhesive Test for printing, marking and logo

14.Jug body 360 degree rotation check

Poured purified water into Min. level, input rated voltage and switch on, then slowly turned jug body along base for two circle (clockwise and anti-clockwise), check if intermittent function between jug and base.

Other requirements: between the pot body and the base pad 0.5mm thick gasket can not have poor contact problems found

15.Boiling hot water temperature check

Poured purified water into Max level, then input rated voltage and switch on, measured boiling water temperature (centre position) after steam switched off and record actual data into report.

the water should not spray out of kettle, and the lid should be on the housing properly.

16.capacity check

17.Timing accuracy check (for with timing function item) 

Timer should be set as per instruction manual and the timer is set at max. time, and then to operate it, the actual time should be measured, if no client requirement, the tolerance requirement is: electronics type +/-1minutes, mechanical type +/-10%

18.Dry boiling check

Apply a lower voltage( about 70% of rated voltage ) with no water in the kettle, then check if thermal control switch operates as intended. no safety issue occurs.

19.Handle strength check

The fixing system of handle shall bear a bending stress force of 100N(applied on (each) handle) for 1 minute.

Or The assemblies of handle must support a weight equal to 2 times the weight of the water capacity of the unit plus the weight of any cover intended for use with the unit for 1 minute.

no any failure of the securing system after testing, i.e. rivets, welds, etc.

20.Smell check Pour tap water into Min. level and input rated voltage and check if

product emitted bad smell from hot water/body during brewing

21.Full function check (including the function which only can be checked after fully assembling.)


All of intended functions what specified in instruction manual should be operated and checked, and all should work properly as intended.

such as installation/assembly, adjusting, switch/knob action check, setting, other actual using function etc.

all of function should be complied with spec.



Basic structure

Products basically have a logo - all need to do the silk-screen paste test

There are scales on both sides_Basically, there is a capacity test

Internal inspection - check the CDF

The indicator light should be shifted. Observation within 1m

Dry burn test_can adjust the voltage to prevent the heating tube discoloration_heat plate bottom temperature control

Boil water test _ steam temperature control basic structure:

The nameplate needs to have the body and base of the kettle.
