SOURCE: How do I clean the contact points between kettle and platform?

I had the same problem before mine broke completely (see my problem posted today). The problem seems to be the support that holds the center pin inside the control. I have not been able to fix mine. Now it is totally broken and Cusinart has been no help. How old is your unit? Cuisinart told me that there is a 3 year warranty. Give them a call. They can decide based on the serial number whether they will cover it.

There's several home remedies you can try: Try 50% "White Vinegar", 50% Hot Water or 2 Denture tablets in warm water over night or Baking soda in warm water. These remove the alkaline, minerals, and nitrates that build up on the surface. There is even a commercial product you can use to clean it. I can't recall the name but look in any supermarket, you should be able to locate it.

SOURCE: Kettle will not stay on

Sounds like the switch is weight sensitive. A safety feature to prevent overheat as contents run low? The baseplate is probably not moving freely enough to move accordingly.

SOURCE: When the kettle is switched on, the light comes on...

sounds like the element has died. If it's still under warranty, take it back. If it's not under warranty, contact an electrician or appliance repair person. Unless it's an expensive kettle though, it's probably not worthwhile fixing, as elements can sometimes be as expensive as a new kettle

Looking for replacement kettle spout filter for Breville VKJ007. It's rectangular and black not the tapered type.

Tried customer support on 0161 652 1211 who said replacements are no longer available.
You can use the kettle without the filter but the auto-stop feature is likely not to work so don't leave it unattended.

How do you put the filter back in the kettle? model 40870

Hold the filter like a "V" and place the little nub on the bottom of the "V" inside the spout (arrow on the filter pointing towards the spout). Then wedge the top of the filter under the lip of the pot.

Melitta MEK17W Electric Kettle: The little filter that fits into the spout disinte...

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:

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.

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............................................
