Question about Salton Melitta MEK17W Electric Kettle
The little filter that fits into the spout disintegrated. The material is broken. Can I get a repolacement and how much does it cost? Ingrid Lewin

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:

I had the same problem. Called Melitta and they referred me to Fox International as Melitta doesn't have parts for discontinued products.
Fox International may be reached at 800-738-0245. Their website is http://www.directpartsandproducts.com/index.php, however they don't list Melitta as a brand they carry.
