Sapper alessi kettle

The kettle has two pitch pipes (the whistle) which scale up and need replacing from time to time. How do you remove the old pipes and instal the new ones? I have bought the replacement pipes from Alessi, but no instructions.

I bought new pitch pipes for my kettle and they came with directions. The directions from Alessi say to push the old ones out from underneath (part of the whistle that rests inside the kettle when it is closed) with a flat head screw driver. When installing the new ones, they say to only use your finger to push them in from the top, using only the eraser end of a pencil if you need to push with something. Mine were very loose, however. Also, the side with M1 or S1 etched into the brass part of the whistle should go lettered-end down into the brass tubes.

You need to find something strong and the right diameter to fit through the hole in the back, to push out the old pitch pipes. I used a twist drill - it doesn't matter if it gets trashed doing it - it does not work anyway!

Push the new ones in gently, they should go in easily, if they are a bit tight make sure the hole is clean. Clean it out with some wet and dry sandpaper.

I boiled the kettle dry and it now has brown spots on it. Can I restore it to its beautiful finish


It must have been badly over heated. Check at the local hardware store for cleaners that can clean over heated metal surfaces.

Have you tried using it on a different socket outlet ? Possibly there is a problem with the wiring at this socket.
If the electricity supply "trips" at the consumer unit it is either the RCD which trips due to e.g. the base of the kettle becoming wet or alternatively the MCB tripping due to an overload which shouldn't happen unless there is a fault in the kettle.
When you got a replacement kettle presumably they replaced the base also?

Alessi coban rs04 espresso maker


Hi All,
I had the same problem. There is ONE authorised dealer for Alessi in Italy. They are Arthur Eugster Italia srl, in Asti (Piemonte). I don't have the contact number, but my friend in Italy got a complete set of seals from them, FREE OF CHARGE (don't ask me how he got it) and sent to me in Australia. Good luck
