Just buy a sachet of kettle descaler from almost any large supermarket, electrical retailer or hardware store and follow the instructions.

It basically creates a carefully controlled acidic environment in your kettle which dissolves the limescale. If you have a very heavy deposit it may need more than one application.
Many folks choose to boil vinegar or lemon juice in their kettles to do the same job, but it tends to taint the kettle afterwards and so you need to fill and boil the kettle a few times until you can no longer taste or smell the vinegar. Don't use straight vinegar as it tends to boil over, instead use no more than four parts vinegar to six parts water. If you have Indian food shops near you, then you may be able to buy citric acid crystals (look like salt) which you mix with water and then use like the vinegar solution. This option gives the least taint and is most similar to some commercial descaling products.

Do not be tempted to use household sink unblockers such as hydrochloric or sulphuric acid. You can get a very energetic reaction and strong boiling acid shooting out of the kettle is not much fun.

Hello, I have a problem with my microwave type Sanyo em c-2000 Sometimes the microwave doesn't react after I press the start button. After the beep there's the following code in the screen:...


If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.

The error described can be fault in any of these.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

I turned on the cordless electric kettle without water! the metal rod inside the kettle turned black? was it burnt? i tried boiling water again and it worked. but is the metal rod toxic or not? can i still...


Yes, if your worried, use a fine emory paper to clean off the tarnish from the heat scorch. You may have shortened the life a little on the element but it is fine as long as it is not spalling, of flaking.

My electrical water kettle does not heat water...how to solve the problem?


Check the kettle at another socket to ensure the socket isn't the problem.
Replace the fuse in the plug.
If the power flex is removable from the kettle, check the terminals in the connector havn't become burned.
The chances are that the element may have burned out in the kettle and in this case it probably isn't worth repairing.

How do you desalazize kettle?


If by desalazize you mean remove the deposits which build up from the minerals in your tap water, the easiest way to do it is with white vinegar (most vinegar will work but white is best for cleaning).
  1. Fill kettle with a mixture of white vinegar and water (about 50/50 but it doesn't have to be exact) until it covers as much of the deposits as possible.
  2. Heat the kettle until the liquid boils
  3. Let the kettle sit with the liquid in it for 3-6 hours
  4. Empty and Rinse
  5. Fill kettle with regular water, boil, and empty to get rid of any lingering vinegar taste.
If the deposits are especially thick, you may need to repeat steps 1-4 before moving on to step 5.

What does it mean when it is descaleing?


Kettles and indeed any appliance that heats water gets a chalk "scale£" on the element. To remove this use spirit vinegar, that will dissolve the chalk. Wash thoroughly afterwards.

I need to clean brown stain and scale (?) from two 'plastic' tea kettles, one a Chefmate, the other a Kitchen Gourmet. The latter is much more stained than the other, with entire interior incuding spout...

An awesome product that you spray on and let sit overnight. then simply wash it off. (Non Toxic / Non corrosive) No gloves required but does have an odd odor so I would let it soak outside. Heavy accumulations may require a second treatment.

Also great on shower heads. Remove it.. place it in a glass overnight and then re-install the next moring. Does not discolor anything. Ditto for shower enclosures and tile. Why this product is not in great demand is a mystery.

THIS WILL Clean it.

My Sanyo 1000W microwave is shooting sparks!!!


you need to replace the cavity cover "the cardboard like",the antenna bearing set "the gun barrel like" and the gear motor.If the "gun barrel like" is stuck up because the gear motor is not rotating excessive heat will occur inside the microwave thus burning the cavity cover.
