Question about Braun WK600 Cordless Electric Kettle

Open Question

The kettle leaks to the point it is dangerous to use.

I can't really tell where the leak is. I just know it is on the base around the element and then leaks from there to the counter top.

Otherwise I have loved this kettle.

My kettle is leaking


Most likely the leaking is an indication that the kettle needs to be replaced

Leaking from base


You shouldn't use this in that condition - it's dangerous by electric shock. Is it only when water level is above any limit? Is it when water has been just boiled or also when water is cold ? I mean is it water or condensed steam?

Kettle base got water .keeps blowing....how do i solve problem


For the kettle's black 'charging' base:
Unplug this charging base immediately. Let it dry out completely. If you have an air hose, contact cleaner or Electronics Duster (compressed air) to displace the water.

If you're kettle stopped working after its fully dry (wait a day to be safe), make sure it's still unplugged and check the contacts in the base center for corrosion (there's the center ground pin and if you push down on it's spring-loaded ring around the ground pin you'll find two more inner/outer circumferential contacts). If you see corrosion try to clean them with a cotton swab (like Q-Tip) and alcohol and retry.


For the kettle's stainless steel 'pitcher' base:
It's the same as above but you'll need to expose the bottom for best results and to find out where's this water it leaking from.

You'll need to remove the 3 Phillips screws and one safety-screw with a "spanner insert bit" on your driver. If you don't have access to one of those and your kettle leaks when filled then I'd bet it's cheaper to replace than to repair, sorry.

Either fit a new neoprene gasket or if you don't mind the flavour, use a heatproof sealant that is sold in many DIY stores.

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.

I have a dualit 72402 kettle which is not heating,when put on base, switch will stay down and neon lights possibly the element has gone but I cannot unscrew base of kettle to check it,do you sell this tool...


I have a similar problem and spoke to Dualit who say that the element is probably blown. As the unit is sealed into the base it is not repairable and should be scrapped. Not really a solution more a way forward
