Question about Tefal Elegance Brushed Chrome Cordless Electric Kettle
This just started a little while ago. When you turn the kettle on it starts up and eventually the water is boiled. But if you hang around for the in-between you will notice that the water keeps fluctuating between boiling and not. The little green light on the base of the kettle is also turning on and off. Some times flickering. We have tried cleaning the contacts and moving to a different plug. Any other thoughts??
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 :)
