Question about General (102105011) Electric Kettle

2 Answers

Can kettle be cleaned and continue to be used.

I think some one in the family used our GE Electric Kettle model 106832 to heat up apple cider. My girlfriend says the kettle is now unuseable because you are only supposed to boil water in it.

Can I clean it with bleach & water or something else and continue using it?
It has set for months but looks clean.

Yes, you can use it again try vinegar to clean the kettle inside. Put a cup of vinegar and hot water, keep it for half an hour. Then wash it properly, hope it will help.

I use a solution of vinegar and water (1:1) and boil it in the kettle, to remove mineral deposits from the metal heating surface (We do the same with the percolating coffee maker and run it through several times)... It seems to take any residual tastes out of the unit and possibly also cleans the plastic parts that it touches (I believe it does).
By the way... WHO thought it was a good idea to heat apple cider in an electric kettle. Sorry but WOW

How do i clean the inside of illuma kettle


You can use Lime-Away (at Home Depot) or Apple Cider vinegar. It seems to work much better then regular vinegar. In either case let it boil if it has no element inside the water compartment, put a small clean rag inside and use a wooden spoon to clean the heavier areas. Boil it a few times, then dump it, and boil and clean with clean water twice, then put it back in service.

How do I clean


Fill kettle until 3/4 full with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Boil and allow to stand overnight.

Empty solution from kettle. Fill the kettle with clean water, bring to boil and discard water. Repeat and the kettle will be ready for use.

Or you can use a proprietary kettle descaler, which is available at most hardware stores.

Breville kettle blew fuse (trip switch) now won't switch on


If the 'neon' light is on, the power is getting to the kettle, so if its not heating up then the element must have broken.

This kettle has a little white trip switch inside the 'socket' of the kettle (not the base unit). If its not heating, light is not on and the plug fuse is OK, then poke the white trip until it clicks.
