Oster water kettle leaking from bottom of unit when pouring?


If you're not just simply missing the opening a little as you're pouring then I'd assume it's cheaper to replace than to repair, sorry.

If it's leaking from the side-glass you might get by with filling your kettle just under the lower end of the side-glass.

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 descale Philips HD 4651/C Electric Water Kettle


Not having received any solution message from FIXYA contributors, I consulted with a family member
and also my long held Time-Life Books, Fix It Yourself Library, Volume: Cleaning & Stain Removal,
ISBN: 0-8094-7400-X, Copyright 1990. My issue was resolved by using white vinegar and soaking the internal problem area for 30 minutes. The appliance has cleaned up like new and works fantastic. I apologize for bothering you.

Boils continually


much simpler solution: if the filter is not installed, is not installed correctly, or is ripped, the kettle will fail to shut off. also, this model has a lid that must be set down very tight; any leakage around the lid will allow steam to escape, and will cancel the auto shut-off.

the filters on these kettles are a very weak spot in the engineering of the product.
