Leaks


I have had two Russell Hobbs electric jugs in the last several years. Both eventually leaked at the spout seams. Not good enough !!! In my opinion something is wrong with the workmanship or design.

TEFAL STEAM GENERATOR GV8460 NO STEAM IRON HEATS UP


The water is heated by a metal plate that is bolted to the metal water tank, operating in pretty much the same way as a domestic kettle, the plate being the element. The plate is fixed in place by 8 or so nuts onto studs that form part of the water tank and heated by passing electrical current into this plate. Over time the nuts come loose and consequently the plate is not in full contact with the water tank. This results in insufficient heat transfer and a failure to consistently reach the required temperature to create steam. Ultimately you will need to remove the plastic base of the unit to access the plate and re-tighten the nuts. You will need a small 6 star bit with the centre punched out to remove the base as it is secured with security screws. These are readily available on ebay as they are the same as those used to secure number plates.

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 Tefal Pro express iron and I have water dripping out of the bottom of the generator. Can you help.


There is a seal or a connection leaking. Take the iron apart -- you'll probably see where it's been leaking.

I need directions for the TFal Vitesse cordless electric kettle. 7845162 Thanks


Fill with clean water to fill line. Have base plugged in. Place kettle on base and press down button on top of handle. Water should boil quickly and turn off automatically when done.

Kettle keeps Turning off and on.


Try descaling the kettle for about an hour with some white vinegar without heating. Hopefully the problem is caused by limescale on the thermostat/thermocouple and this will cure it. If this doesn't seem to help then probably the thermostat/thermocouple is to blame, and although easy to replace, it seems that the best way to get the right bits is an authorised tefal dealer. This link will get you the user manual for your kettle if you need it; http://www.t-fal.ca/tefal/products/product/index.asp?univers%5Fid=400&dept%5Fid=430&sku=L00056&mscssid=JXT37R7ERWKH9P2URRA8CLM0SHMF327C Also it has the contacts for tefal customer service(Canada) if you need. Hope the descaling helps, it usually does the trick :)
