Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

Open Question

New electric kettle, Brand name Ecron. Plastic cordless. First I boiled water in it , to clean it out, rinsed and repeated 3 times (I use bottled water where I live in Spain). Tea had a funny taste, similar to the smell of the kettle and every cup since tastes the same. I then tried boiling water with bicarbonate of soda in, rinsed out kettle and boiled just plain water. Rinsed this out and made cup of tea. Still tastes the same. Should I take the kettle back to the shop? I've never experienced this with any kettle or coffee maker I've ever had. Thank you for your advice

SOURCE: sediment in my electric tea kettle

it is very hard to get rid off ass the sediment comes from the tap water untill you boil the water you dont see this sediment and take it for granted that the water is clean but as soon as you put it in a electric kettle this sediment builds up on the element then it brakes off and floats around in the kettle most new kettles have a filter near the spout so when you pour the water out it traps it in the filter then this can be removed and cleaned but the sediment floating in the kettle is hard to get out you can clean the element and descale it and then just keep pouring water in and out of kettle till its all out but it will soon build up again there are two ways to stop sediment one is filter all the water before putting in kettle but this can be slow process so not worth doing or the best sollution is buy a kettle that has a filter by the spout of the kettle and clean this regularly hope this is some help to you............................................

SOURCE: smell and taste from water

It must be the kettle causing the problem from what you say. If th e kettle is new the problem should reduce with use but if it is old it will get worse (possibbly due to rubber washers/seals perishing)

SOURCE: electric cordless kettle

A simple way is to boil milk in it then a couple of cleaning boils. Happens with a lot of metallic kettles. Failing that add lemon juice to the water for 4 boils then one straight boil.

SOURCE: Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and

hello,

the chemical taste of smell from your kettle means that the element in the kettle which provide heat to boiled the water has gone bad due to over heating

this occur when there is shortage of water level in the kettle when the power supply is on

to fix up this problem of smell and chemical taste in your boiled water you will have to make a change of the element (heater)because it has gone bad you can get a replacement of it in the store .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

How do i clean the inside of illuma kettle


You can use Lime-Away (at Home Depot) or Apple Cider vinegar. It seems to work much better then regular vinegar. In either case let it boil if it has no element inside the water compartment, put a small clean rag inside and use a wooden spoon to clean the heavier areas. Boil it a few times, then dump it, and boil and clean with clean water twice, then put it back in service.

How to fix kettle thats boiled milk ?


Just fill it up with water and boil, then empty and repeat a few times, or put in equal amounts of white vinegar and water and leave it to soak overnight. Just make sure you rinse it really well in the morning

How to clean my Braun electric kettle


Hi, follow the instruction below to clean it up...

Unplug the tea kettle from the wall outlet, and detach the plug from the kettle.

Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar into the kettle, and fill the kettle halfway with hot water.

Agitate the kettle so the vinegar mixture hits the sides of the kettle walls, and let the water sit for 20 minutes.

Discard the vinegar water, and scrub the interior of the kettle gently with a nylon sponge.

Rinse the kettle with hot water, and repeat as needed until all buildup is removed. Let the kettle air-dry before inserting the cord back into the kettle.

I bought the Russell Hobbs Whisper Kettle expecting it to boil quietly. Wrong. It is quite the opposite. Not sure if I can take it back due to "false advertising"??


Have you tried descaling the kettle? When scale builds up over the whisper quiet element, it reduces the effectiveness, and the kettle becomes noisy. Try 1 tablespoon of citric acid, fill the kettle to the max line, boil the kettle then leave for 10 minutes. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

When filled with water & put on to boil it start's boiling as normal then after 10 or 20 secs.the lights inside flicker off and the kettle ceases to boil then the lights flicker back on and boiling...


I think you would only solve this problem by cleaning the thermostat contacts, or replacing the thermostat which wouldn't be worthwhile as it's likely to be cheaper to buy a new kettle.
Besides this , just getting into the kettle needs special 3 tongue screwdriver and then a certain technique to open it up without damaging the plastic parts. Im'e afraid its a throw-away world now and its not good .

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.
