My Cookworks Signature MK 17S02J kettle turns off automatically before the water has reached boiling point. I have already descaled it and that has made no difference.

SOURCE: kettle shuts off before boiling?

This is caused by a defective overload switch inbuilt in the kettle, sometimes the senitivity is higher than factory settings causing it to trip and reset several times before coming to boil. probably better to put up with it than going in for a costly repair.

SOURCE: kettle lights but doesn't boil

Most likely the thermo fuse is blown.

You have to take the kettle apart and see the spec for the thermo fuse. You can get these at most any electronics parts supplier for appliances.

To change the thermo fuse you will need the proper crimp type connectors and the crimp tool. This is not able to be soldered. It runs too hot, and soldering in a circuit close to a heating element is not able to be used.

Before changing the thermo fuse, you can test it with an ohm meter. It should typicaly read about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms. The heating element resistance should typicaly read about 8 to 12 ohms.

If the heating element reads below 6 to 7 ohms on a well calibrated ohm meter, or above 15 ohms, it is defective.

If the thermo fuse is blown, the kettle may have been left running when boiled out and over heated, or there is a short in the heating element.

If you feel that you are not comfortable to do this type of repair, it would be best to give the kettle out to an appliance service centre to have it serviced.

When you change the thermo fuse, and if it blows again the heating element is probably damaged. It must be replaced if possible, or if worth the cost.

On the other hand, if the kettle is more than a few years old and you don't want to go to all this trouble, you may want to consider to simply get a new one.

Make sure that the lid is securely on. Otherwise its the replacement of the auto bi metalic strip which turns the kettle off

SOURCE: Automatic switch off not working when water reached boiling.

There is no do it yourself fix for this problem. However, placing a folded cloth on top of the kettle (covering the spout) will cause it to switch off quicker, as it increases the pressure inside the kettle.

SOURCE: kettle does not automatically shut off

stop using it. If the kettle boils dry it could damage it irrepairably, or worse, start a fire. It sounds like the switch is dodgy, look into getting it replaced, or just replace the kettle.

The lining of the kettle on the inside bottom is boiling away. What is it made of and is this dangerous?


Stainless Steel doesn't boil away. What you're seeing is the mineral deposits (mostly calcium) left behind from heating the heavy water you're pouring into the kettle. Descale it, pour it out and rinse every month or when it gets bad if you like. These deposits won't hurt you but looks nasty. Another option is to use filtered water instead of tap water. Hope this helps a little...

Hi, i have a Bosch TDS2551GB steam generator iron. It needs descaling but I don't know how and there does not appear to be a descaling button. How do I proceed ?


Hi, Descaling is simply a process where the limestone that is deposited in any water cooking device is removed.
Have a look inside your electric kettle to see how much of a problem ypou have in your area.
If you have a serious problem & your kettle element is totally covered up with a whitish coating, I suggest you buy a can of commercial descaling agent.
If not, or iof you prefer home remedies, get a bottle of white vinegar.
Empty your kettle & pour a bit of vinegar onto the limestone. If it boils & foams, it is being dissolved. Replace the vinegar everytime it stops or slows down. Look at the results. You can speed it up by heating the kettle. Do not boil the kettle with vinegar. (Weak acid) Rather dilute it 50-50 I then boil. Or, just boi;l some water & throw it out. Then put the acid on. once you figuted out what process is suitable for getting rid of your areas's limestne, then applie your knowledge to your Bosh.
Just let the acid stand inside it overnight, or get more drastic if neccessary.

Have a problem with a Breville Classique kettle,model number jk91. It does not switch off automatically. Any suggestions please? regards Sandra Smith e-mail davidforrest@hotmail.com


Every kettle has a thermostat/thermometer that trips the switch to off when the water reaches boiling point. The solution is not usually something you can do yourself. Your best bet is to consult the manufacturer for a repair/replacement (if under warranty). I recommend that you contact the retailer first as most retailers have an agreement with the maunufacturer to replace most small kitchen items if it's still under warranty and develops a fault.

Can I use vinegar to descale my Breville single cup coffeemaker?


White wine vinegar is a great descaler as it can dissolve the white deposits. For kettles, fill them up and leave them overnight. Don't boil it, though - the vinegar will froth up and go everywhere. Afterwards, rinse the kettle thoroughly, fill with water and boil before using it again. Malt vineger can also be used as the malt only adds flavor

How do I clean


Fill kettle until 3/4 full with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Boil and allow to stand overnight.

Empty solution from kettle. Fill the kettle with clean water, bring to boil and discard water. Repeat and the kettle will be ready for use.

Or you can use a proprietary kettle descaler, which is available at most hardware stores.

How to descale Philips HD 4651/C Electric Water Kettle


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.

Kettle keeps Turning off and on.


Try descaling the kettle for about an hour with some white vinegar without heating. Hopefully the problem is caused by limescale on the thermostat/thermocouple and this will cure it. If this doesn't seem to help then probably the thermostat/thermocouple is to blame, and although easy to replace, it seems that the best way to get the right bits is an authorised tefal dealer. This link will get you the user manual for your kettle if you need it; http://www.t-fal.ca/tefal/products/product/index.asp?univers%5Fid=400&dept%5Fid=430&sku=L00056&mscssid=JXT37R7ERWKH9P2URRA8CLM0SHMF327C Also it has the contacts for tefal customer service(Canada) if you need. Hope the descaling helps, it usually does the trick :)
