SOURCE: kettle gets heavy white residue on inside after a couple uses. we do not ever let it stand with water inside.

Cheapest fix is to use white vinegar to disolve the building up of limestone hardness in your water. I am certain that you find it difficult to get soap to lather well, you have a bathtub ring every time you take a bath, your towels and sheets are stiff and scratchy and your lower legs itch terribly especially in the winter. You have very hard water and you need a water softener. Find a Certified Water Specialist in your Yellow Pages.

SOURCE: Chefs choice electric kettle 677 works sometimes

I have the same problem and I tried to open the base to clean the contact points but found that it is molded into one piece and would have to be cut open and then glued shut when finished. I am about to pull out the file for the kettle contacts because its headed for landfill If I do nothing so I cant make it worse. I am going to file the contacts until itere a little shiny.

SOURCE: krups kettle leaks at base of pot

Unfortunately it's unfixable. A few recent Philips models do it as well and it's worst in hard water areas. Basically the cause is that a tiny bit of water gets into the bottom seam each time the kettle is used and leaves a residue behind when it dries out. Over time, the residue builds up and forces the seam apart so the leak gets worse.

All you can realistically do is hope that it's still under warranty and demand that Krups replace it, preferably with a different model. If they won't then you may have to exert whichever consumer rights exist in your country, but one way or another you need to stop using your kettle (it's dangerous!) and replace it with another.

SOURCE: When the kettle is switched on, the light comes on...

sounds like the element has died. If it's still under warranty, take it back. If it's not under warranty, contact an electrician or appliance repair person. Unless it's an expensive kettle though, it's probably not worthwhile fixing, as elements can sometimes be as expensive as a new kettle

Hi, I have a Bosch Private Collection Kettle. It is over a year old and has until recently been working fine. However, lately I do not feel that it boils to a high enough temperature for a long enough...


Some types of kettles use a separate power base to heat up the kettle jug. If this is the case with yours, turn the jug upside down and look. Also look at the parts on the base that touch the kettle jug contacts. If you can see the electrical contacts; mine were built on spiral rings for differing temperatures; try cleaning them with Brasso and a Q-tip (cotton swab) wiping the contacts several times to remove any tarnish and then use clean swabs to remove all traces of Brasso metal cleaner. Fill the kettle jug up to the maximum fill line and put the boiler on the maximum setting... boiling water. If the water doesn't boil... you have a more serious problem. Buy a new boiler as it isn't worth having someone fix it. Mine worked like new after I cleaned the contacts. Never immerse the jug contacts in water!!!
