In hard water areas scale will
form on the element and walls. This
will adversely affect the operation of
the urn if allowed to accumulate.
Descaling can be simply achieved by
using a proprietary descaler. Choose
one recommended for stainless steel
kettles. It is important to follow the
instructions given on the descaling
solution carton.
Scale build-up can also cause the
tap to drip even when in its closed
position. If this should occur
disconnect from the mains supply,
empty the urn, allow it to cool and
unscrew the top of the tap from the
body of the tap. Wipe, scrape and
break the scale away from the rubber

Remove any plastic film from the
urn and wipe over all surfaces
with a damp cloth.
Check that the voltage shown on
the rating plate is suitable for
your supply.
Before general use it is
recommended that the urn is
boiled twice discarding the water

Fitting a plug
The mains lead of this urn will
already be fitted with a BS1363 13A
plug. In the event of replacing a fuse,
a 13 amp fuse approved by ASTA or
BSI must be used.
If the plug is not suitable for your
socket then the plug must be cut off
and disposed of safely.
An appropriate plug should be
fitted as follows:
IMPORTANT: The wires in the
mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
Green-and-Yellow – Earth
Blue – Neutral
Brown – Live
The wire, which is coloured greenand-yellow, must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked
with the letter E or the earth symbol
# or coloured green or green-andyellow.
The wire, which is coloured blue,
must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter N or
coloured black or blue.
The wire, which is coloured
brown, must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured red or brown.
Make sure that the connections
are tight and that there are no loose
strands of wire and no insulation
trapped under the terminals. Tighten
the clamp in the plug making sure
that it grips the outer covering of the
cord. In a 13A (BS 1363) fused plug,
fit a 13A fuse. Tighten the plug cover
If you are in any doubt, consult a
qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: The supply cord on
this appliance is of a special type. If
replaced, only a Burco supply cord
must be used. The supply cord may
become warm when the appliance is
in use.

the desired amount of water.
• Do not fill above the ‘MAX’
capacity mark.

dry cut-out to operate (and may
shorten the life of the element).
The urn is not suitable for boiling
liquids other than water or for boiling
water containing small solid particles.
If the water is being boiled for tea
making, it is best to make the tea in
another container. However, if it is
necessary to make the tea in the urn
it should be suspended clear of the
urn bottom and heating elements in a
muslin bag. If it is intended to boil
large items such as puddings or hams
in the urn, they should be suspended
clear of the urn bottom and heating

with a thermal cut-out which protects
the urn from damage if it is allowed
to boil dry or is switched on without
water. The cut-out re-sets

In order to ensure correct
operation of this cut-out it is essential
to keep the heating element free from
scale. Failure to do this will result in
the cut-out operating before the
water has boiled.
