Russell Hobbs kettle 18278 Plastic taste

Bought new in June 2012. First example leaked at the sight glss within weeks. Exchanged for second one which then failed electrically after 3 months. Exchanged again for another new one last week which now leaves an unpleasant plastc taste in hot beverages despite boiling at max level, decanting, rinsing and repeating for 10 times. How do we get rid of the plastic taste (like a polythene water pipe taste)? Has Russell Hobbs abandoned quality assurance re its Chinese manufacturers?

You will need to first shock that kettle first bold hot water then remove it and replace with very cold or ice water. The smell like plastic is brought by the Plastic which over heats and somehow weakens to a point of melting thus releasing a smell into your water, Shocking the kettle would help if not then you will need to buy another kettle as that one might not be original or just wasn't tested for regularities and standards.

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.

I bought the Russell Hobbs Whisper Kettle expecting it to boil quietly. Wrong. It is quite the opposite. Not sure if I can take it back due to "false advertising"??


Have you tried descaling the kettle? When scale builds up over the whisper quiet element, it reduces the effectiveness, and the kettle becomes noisy. Try 1 tablespoon of citric acid, fill the kettle to the max line, boil the kettle then leave for 10 minutes. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
