What to do with electric teapot that has broken lid mechanism

Some years ago we bought Kenwood electric teapot. I specially tried to get a metallic one so that it lasts longer and does not poison the water in it as plastic ones do. Unfortunately it had plastic mechanism for the lid and, of course, it broke, so the lid could not be closed. That means, teapod could not be switched on as well. Warranty time was two years and it was just over, not to mention, that I would have to travel 400 km twice in order to get the pot fixed in an authorized service. My father found a solution:

By putting a heavy object on a lid it is possible to close it and make the teapot work.

So the pot works on and is being used every day already for five years.
