Kettle I recieved this kettle as a birthday gift, and love it's look. The problem I am having with it, is the kettle does not seem to engage well in the stand. We have to fiddle over and over to MAKE the kettle engage, in order for the green light to turn on at all.

"On" switch blinks, kettle won't heat

In case you are still watching this issue for a solution - I'm afraid my assessment of the company troubleshooting support and of this particular issue is that we are out of luck.
I have the same problem. Have downloaded manuals - very little information except for, don't get them wet.
I have contacted the company - they asked me for the same information I gave them in the original troubleshooting request...
We bought a new one - fortunately on sale at Target. The blinking light is the normal indication - lack of heat and boiling is the problem.
Our new pot boils on both bases...old pot clicks and then just sits there with a blinking light - the light should blink until the temp is reached.

I intend to return the old pot to Target and move on....I suspect there is a burned out coil but, it is too hard to troubleshoot and won't be able to be fixed.

I suspect that a better (more expensive) pot might have more durable coils...but, we'll see how long the new one lasts.

If the kettle was bought with a credit card, then you are in business because the statement will back up the purchase and the store would have a record and would have to comply. But! if the gift was bought with cash it will be difficult to prove, still I would bring it back to the store and ask for the manager, the last thing they want is bad publicity, especially when you show the condition of the electric tea kettle and what it could mean for the store's reputation, you may be surprised with the results.

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.
