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:

If you can no longer find this scale filter online or from the manufacturer, then you can still repair your original one and make it better than new! This fix has worked perfectly on my MEK17W kettle and it turns off properly when the water boils.
Buy a piece of 3"x3" 100 mesh (150 micron, must be stainless) on Ebay - under $3 inc shipping. Carefully cut the old plastic mesh out of the original filter frame with an exacto blade and very lightly sandpaper the triangular face of the plastic frame that faces into the kettle. Then temporarily hold the stainless mesh to this inside face of the filter frame with a couple of clothes pegs and use a pencil to mark the
triangular outline of the mesh so that it will fit flush against the plastic and also be no wider than the frame. Carefully cut the triangle of mesh to size with scissors. Thoroughly mix up a small portion of 5-minute 2-part epoxy glue (Loctite or JBWeld) with a thin wooden coffee stir stick and apply just a smear of glue to the frame. As soon as the glue starts to get tacky, gently fit the mesh to the frame and clip it there lightly with 5 plastic clothes pegs, 2 on each side and 1 at the bottom. To ensure their release, you can first wipe the pegs (where they pinch together) with the faintest skim of Vaseline or sewing oil. Let the assembly set for 24 hours and then carefully ease off the pegs. You will now have a filter that will last longer than the kettle.
