Russell hobbs kettle
You will need to first shock that kettle first bold hot water then remove it and replace with very cold or ice water. The smell like plastic is brought by the Plastic which over heats and somehow weakens to a point of melting thus releasing a smell into your water, Shocking the kettle would help if not then you will need to buy another kettle as that one might not be original or just wasn't tested for regularities and standards.
Switches off before full boil
Look under the kettle at the round circular connector in the bottom. Inside there is a small button that is depressed when the kettle is put on the base. If this is not pushed in far enough it will have problems.
The cause is that after some use the connector in the base plate collapses into the base by 1-2 mm This means the switch is not pushed in far enough.
My kettle had similar issues... I pulled the base plate apart (3 screws I think) and cut a round disk of plastic to lift the connector up by about 1-2mm and then reassembled the base.. No more issues
Russell Hobbs Toaster. How to remove the casing on it please?
Question edited for clarity and typo.
Question moved from Cars and Trucks with a guess at model.
A lever that won't stay down is usually an indication that the element has failed on that side. You can buy replacement cassette units, which is the whole of the inside, but they don't make them easy to change because all the wires are crimped to the connectors. The handles pull off, and the easiest way to remove them is to put a dinner knife under both edges and twist the knife which ejects them evenly. There are probably 4 screws in the base, but they may be hidden by feet. It really is easier just to buy another.
