Call 1-800-233-9054 and ask Salton/Toastmaster for part number 31036 for the MEK17W kettle. You may as well buy 2.
When this scale filter in the spout of a Melitta MEK17W or Toastmaster TEK17W (identical kettles) gets torn the kettle does not hold in enough steam to trigger the auto off switch. Same thing happens if you do not fully close the kettle lid. With a new and spare scale filter you will get way more life out of this inexpensive and handy kettle.
If you still have the old original filter, here is an inexpensive and permanent repair option using stainless mesh:

SOURCE: sediment in my electric tea kettle

it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................

Okay. I took the base off the kettle (made a special screwdriver). Saw that one of the contacts was loose on its 'swage'. Used a pin punch to re-swage it. Bingo! it worked.

sounds like there's water in the element. Empty it out and let it dry out completely for a few days, and then try it again.
If the element is a concealed element (ie- you can't see the coils when you open the lid up) then there's probably a water leak into the sealed compartment.
Contact the manufacturer for a recommended repairer.

I need to buy filters for the spout. Where in the San Jose area are they available?? Melitta MEK 17W electric kettle.


If you can no longer find this scale filter online or from the manufacturer, then you can still repair your original one and make it better than new! This fix has worked perfectly on my MEK17W kettle and it turns off properly when the water boils.
Buy a piece of 3"x3" 100 mesh (150 micron, must be stainless) on Ebay - under $3 inc shipping. Carefully cut the old plastic mesh out of the original filter frame with an exacto blade and very lightly sandpaper the triangular face of the plastic frame that faces into the kettle. Then temporarily hold the stainless mesh to this inside face of the filter frame with a couple of clothes pegs and use a pencil to mark the
triangular outline of the mesh so that it will fit flush against the plastic and also be no wider than the frame. Carefully cut the triangle of mesh to size with scissors. Thoroughly mix up a small portion of 5-minute 2-part epoxy glue (Loctite or JBWeld) with a thin wooden coffee stir stick and apply just a smear of glue to the frame. As soon as the glue starts to get tacky, gently fit the mesh to the frame and clip it there lightly with 5 plastic clothes pegs, 2 on each side and 1 at the bottom. To ensure their release, you can first wipe the pegs (where they pinch together) with the faintest skim of Vaseline or sewing oil. Let the assembly set for 24 hours and then carefully ease off the pegs. You will now have a filter that will last longer than the kettle.

How to clean the inside of tea pot (scale deposits)?


Vinegar is very good at removing scaly deposits. Heat white/clear vinegar just as you would normally heat the water for your tea. After heating the vinegar, pour out and rinse thoroughly with water. If there are still deposits after this first attempt, use vinegar once again. Once you are satisfied that all the deposits have been removed, heat water in the tea pot 2-3 times to remove any smell or taste from the vinegar (before using for tea).
