Rust coloured spots on insie of kettle

Hi there,
I am not sure what model I have but it is a 1.7 litre stainless steel Sunbeam jug. The problem is there are all these rust coloured spots at the bottom of the jug and I am not sure if it is still healthy to boil water in the jug any more.
Have you heard of this happening before?
Is it rust?
What should I do?

My kettle wont start. it seems the connection from the base to the kettle is not connecting. if I hold the kettle firmly down it will start but as soon as I take weight off the kettle it stops.


The contacts inside the base are carboned up and possibly misaligned. Take the base apart and clean the contacts with a nail file, check the alignment and correct if needed. Also clean the contacts on the bottom of the kettle. If you still have the same issue, open the base and inset a small piece of cork gasket material under the three contacts so they will not drop down when you put the kettle on top of the base. Don't make the cork pieces too thick or the kettle will not sit flat.

These are factory sealed and for the sake of a new kettle you could end up electrocuting yourself, or an innocent user. If you try to fix it yourself. REMEMBER water and electric are lethal combination, when messed with.

Hi, I have a Bosch Private Collection Kettle. It is over a year old and has until recently been working fine. However, lately I do not feel that it boils to a high enough temperature for a long enough...


Some types of kettles use a separate power base to heat up the kettle jug. If this is the case with yours, turn the jug upside down and look. Also look at the parts on the base that touch the kettle jug contacts. If you can see the electrical contacts; mine were built on spiral rings for differing temperatures; try cleaning them with Brasso and a Q-tip (cotton swab) wiping the contacts several times to remove any tarnish and then use clean swabs to remove all traces of Brasso metal cleaner. Fill the kettle jug up to the maximum fill line and put the boiler on the maximum setting... boiling water. If the water doesn't boil... you have a more serious problem. Buy a new boiler as it isn't worth having someone fix it. Mine worked like new after I cleaned the contacts. Never immerse the jug contacts in water!!!
