Question about Tefal Elegance Brushed Chrome Cordless Electric Kettle

Kettle keeps Turning off and on.

This just started a little while ago. When you turn the kettle on it starts up and eventually the water is boiled. But if you hang around for the in-between you will notice that the water keeps fluctuating between boiling and not. The little green light on the base of the kettle is also turning on and off. Some times flickering. We have tried cleaning the contacts and moving to a different plug. Any other thoughts??

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 :)

By descaling with vinegar you are meaning filling the kettle up with vinegar without heating it?)

Kettle keeps turning off before it is boiled

Sounds like the thermostat has gone out of calibration. If you're handy with appliance repair it might be possible to purchase (internet) and replace that part - they're usually not adjustable. Otherwise it's a new kettle.

I have a new Bellini electric kettle. When I turn the kettle on, it starts to boil for a few seconds and then turns itself off. It will boil if I hold the "button" down for a while until it...

Unfortunately the problem is in the switch mechanism, and will need to be replaced to correct the problem. My sense is it would be cheaper to replace the kettle than trying to find somebody to repair it.

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 .

Kettle does not automatically shut off even when water is at above minimum level and boiling

I think that standards require an auto-shutoff on electric pots to keep the component from softening down. You could override the shutoff by either taping over the switch or utilizing an elastic band. You can check deep details on electric kettle review sites.

Kettle doesn't turn off

Our first Smart Kettle was great and worked well for years, finally died so we bought another. Right from the first boil it seemed to boil for about 2 or 3 minutes before turning off and then either didn't boil or made beeping sounds when not being used so after a couple of weeks we returned it and it was replaced. Great. But now this new one seems to boil and boil before turning off so maybe they are just faulty now. Any suggestions?

Water kettle does not boil water

I had the exact same problem. The kettle would warm water but not boil. I bet you have hard water - try putting 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water mix and turning it on. I did this, fixed the problem!
