There is a chemical product call CLR.
It's safe for stainless steel pot and coffee maker.
Hard water will coat the heating element / coil inside the kettle.
The coating will reduce the heating range.

Using CLR remove will be the fastest and effective clean the kettle.

Link HERE for the company's web site.


Tons of information here.
Frequently Asked Questions CLR®Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover:
How do I use CLR?
In a well-ventilated area while wearing household rubber gloves and standing on a non-slip surface, mix equal amounts of CLR and warm water. Test the solution on a hidden area before applying to the entire surface. Apply directly to the calcium, lime or rust stain with a brush, cloth or sponge and rinse promptly with cold, clean water. Never leave CLR on an area for longer than two minutes. If the stain does not disappear, use CLR full strength and then wipe and rinse promptly with cold, clean water. Never mix CLR with other household cleaners or bleach and never reuse the bottle.
How do I use CLR to clean my coffee maker?
Mix one part (quarter of a cup) CLR to eight parts (2 cups) water. For single cup coffeemakers, use only one capful of CLR. Run through coffee maker as if making coffee. Rinse thoroughly by running two full pots of clean water through a complete cycle. Instructions are for a regular 8-12 cup coffee maker. *Do not use CLR in coffee makers that hold water permanently. *CLR is not recommended for Gevalia coffee makers. *Do not use CLR in espresso machines.
How do I use CLR to clean coffee pots, pans or tea kettles?
Pour enough CLR to cover bottom. Swish around in pot or pan. Add one cup of hot water, allow mixture to soak for two minutes and thoroughly rinse with cold, clean water.
How do I use CLR to clean my dishwasher or washing machine?
Dishwasher: Run an empty load without detergent up to the main wash cycle, (allowing enough water to fill before cycle begins to agitate) and add one-half cup of CLR. Finish cycle. Run one additional cycle with water alone to "rinse setting" to rinse machine fully.
Washing Machine: Run your empty machine without detergent up to the main wash cycle, which is where the water stops and the cycle is about to agitate. Stop the machine and add one-half cup of CLR. Finish cycle. Run one additional full cycle (wash and rinse) with water only to rinse machine fully. (See separate instructions for Front Loading Machines)
How do I clean my humidifier with CLR?
Pour enough CLR into humidifier to cover the bottom and use a brush or sponge to wipe away stains. Add hot water and soak until thoroughly clean. Rinse thoroughly with cold, clean water.
Can I clean the filter to my humidifier?
Use only on metal filters. Dilute equal parts of CLR and warm water into a plastic container. Dip the filter into the solution for about two minutes. Brush to loosen buildup and rinse with cold, clean water. Allow to dry.
What will CLR do to copper or aluminum?
CLR will take the finish off of aluminum and copper.
What surfaces should I not use CLR on?
DO not use CLR on natural stone or marble, terrazzo, colored grout, painted or metallic glazed surfaces, plastic laminates, Formica, aluminum, steam irons, leaded crystal, refinished tubs or any damaged or cracked surface. CLR may etch older sinks, tubs and tiles. CLR is corrosive. Avoid contact with wood, clothing, wallpaper and carpeting. Some laminated surfaces (counter tops) are coated with a synthetic surface which may be affected by rust removers; clean spills immediately.
Can I put CLR in a spray bottle?
No, CLR is acidic in nature. When using CLR it in a spray bottle, the solution could "spray back" on your clothes or in your eyes and the spray could drift.
How do I use CLR to clean a showerhead?
Remove the showerhead and submerge it in half CLR and half hot water. Leave in CLR for two minutes, remove, and then rinse to loosen up the buildup inside the showerhead. Repeat at full strength if necessary, rinsing thoroughly after each application. Use brush or sponge to loosen up buildup.
How do I clean hard water deposits from my drinking glasses?
Pour 1/2 warm water and 1/2 CLR into a plastic bowl and dip a clean, soft cloth or sponge into it. Apply to deposits and rub. Rinse thoroughly with cold, clean water. If it seems that CLR helped a bit but the glasses are not completely clear, repeat at full strength if necessary.
I used CLR to clean my glasses and it did not remove the deposits. Do you know why?
If it seems that the CLR did not help at all, the glasses may be etched and there is no remedy to remove the cloudiness. The cloudiness is actually tiny cuts made in the glass by deposits in the water. The only thing that may remove the etching is a jeweler's polishing.
Can CLR be used in a steam iron?
It is not recommended that CLR be used in steam irons. It could have an effect on fabrics or interior of the iron.

Hamilton beach electric kettle not heating. Stainless-Steel model 40996


Defective heating element is the most likely cause, but doubt you can have it repaired as they seldom make replacement parts as there is little demand to repair them..

My Hamilton beach 40996 kettle Suddenly it stopped boiling. The on button lights up and reads temp but never boils. It worked and then suddenly stopped. Any chance this is a program problem somehow?


What a crazy over-complicated kettle!
Disc element kettles do tend to have a limited life that is a small fraction of the lifespan of standard kettle elements. The ones I have had usually only last until the guarantee has expired. To discover whether it is the kettle or the base it will be necessary to use a multimeter to check the supply from the base.

How do I fix the lid.


Maybe It is physically damaged, and there is a very slight chance of getting it fixed. Better try the new Hamilton Beach 40880 version. Usually, Electric kettles don't last more than a year if you use it regularly.

Oster kettle not working


Ultimately, how I ended up fixing my Oster 5965 and Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric 40898 kettles that had the same problems as you (Nothing would work; no heat, no buttons would light up) was by taking apart the bottom screws (Be warned, for only one screw I needed a "Spanner Insert Bit"). I jiggled the connectors as I rang them out with my multimeter and everything seemed to work. Leaving the bottom off I retested the kettle and it just worked. I reassembled the parts and made my happy wife a cup of English Tea.

It won't turn on when I push down the switch. It worked perfectly minutes before.
