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.

SOURCE: kettle gets heavy white residue on inside after a couple uses. we do not ever let it stand with water inside.

Cheapest fix is to use white vinegar to disolve the building up of limestone hardness in your water. I am certain that you find it difficult to get soap to lather well, you have a bathtub ring every time you take a bath, your towels and sheets are stiff and scratchy and your lower legs itch terribly especially in the winter. You have very hard water and you need a water softener. Find a Certified Water Specialist in your Yellow Pages.

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.

SOURCE: Talea giro plus / Descaling with vinegar

There are a couple of things I am thinking for this:

If the espresso machine is not spraying the hot steam like it should it says in the manual to take apart the steam apparatus and clean with hot water then to run hot water through the device after each use to clean.

Furthermore, have you seen those CLR commercials? I am sure white vinegar would be fine to put through the machine. As far as the ratio is concerned use a low concentrate to start out like 1 to 3 then increase until desired results occur.

I hope this helps!

Leaking jug


A common cause is the calcium, or some other minerals in the water eventually ate through the bottom of the tank. You will need a new tank, or better... A new kettle.

How do you clean the inside of your metal kettles


if you wish to remove limescale, then you can use limescale remover either liquid or powder.
follow directions on the product of choice.

alterativly use vinager, just pour undiluted vinegar into the kettle and let it rest for a while until it no longer produces bubbles. then rince well.
if there is still limescale then repeat the process.

Note
do not let the kettle boil with vinegar or limescale remover in it. they may cause a fault and some
very bad smells.

I hope this was useful..
