Hamilton Beach cordless kettle, odd screws

Our HB 40996? Cordless kettle stopped heating. I watched YouTube videos and figured it’s likely it got inadvertently boiled dry and blew its thermal fuse. But when I went to unscrew the connector on the pot’s bottom I ran into 3-point screw heads. Even my iFixit kit doesn’t have such a driver.

Beyond that, there are no other fasteners that seem to be holding the bottom of the pot to its body, so even if I could unscrew the odd screws, I’m not sure how I’d get to the heating element for testing, or the thermal fuse to replace it.

Any insight?

Joel those look like they need a Trilobar Tamper-Proof Security Bit. Something like this may work. The ends are a little thicker and lobular in shape vs the Tri point, but it might just work. Anyhow, I am sure Amazon or Harbor Freight might have more of those.

My luck: Reckon I should’ve ordered the Mahi kit instead of the Essentials.
