CONNECTING AND USING THE KETTLE IMPORTANT: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED ON/OFF Switch Element* Kettle Base Kettle Jug *Inside Kettle Jug Water Gauge THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED Separate the kettle from the base. Ensure that the mains socket is switched off at the wall. Lead the power cord out through the recess in the base. Place the kettle base on a stable level surface and connect the power cord to the wall socket. Excess cord may be safely stowed by feeding it carefully into the stowage compartment in the base. Press the lid release down to open the lid. Pour away previously boiled water and use fresh water to fill the kettle. Fill the kettle carefully. The water level must always cover the lowest mark on the gauge. Do NOT fill the kettle above the MAX mark (1.7 litres) or boiling water may be ejected. If you cannot see the water level through the scale, the level is incorrect. Position the filled kettle correctly on the power base. Switch on the power at the wall socket. Press the ON/OFF switch DOWN. The interior will illuminate showing the kettle is operational. When the water has boiled, the kettle will switch off automatically. You can stop the boiling at any time by lifting the switch up. To re-boil, depress the switch again. If the water is very hot, it may be necessary to wait a few seconds before the switch can be reset. Always ensure the lid is closed and never lift it while the kettle is boiling or you run the risk of scalding. If the lid is left open while boiling, the automatic cut-out will not operate and you may boil the kettle dry. After boiling, switch off the appliance at the mains. The kettle may now be safely removed from its base and the boiled water poured out. Always take care to pour boiling water slowly and carefully without tipping the kettle too quickly. After use, replace the kettle on its base. SAFETY AND OTHER FEATURES Boil Switch with Auto Cut-Out When the switch is depressed, the switch illuminates to shows that the kettle is operational. After boiling, the kettle is automatically switched off and the illumination extinguished. Auto Switch-Off. Whenever you remove the kettle from the base the switch will return to the OFF position. Note: When boiling water, do NOT hold the switch up or steam will be ejected from the lid and you may damage the automatic switch off mechanism. Always ensure that the ON/OFF switch is clear of obstructions, readily operable and is not prevented from switching off. Boil Dry Protection Your TESCO kettle is fitted with a safety device which switches it off if the appliance is operated with insufficient water. If this occurs, the kettle should be switched off at the mains and allowed to cool thoroughly before refilling with cold water. The safety device will then reset. Overheating Shut -Off In the event of gross overheating, your TESCO kettle will automatically shut down to prevent further damage. Should this occur, take it to a qualified service person for examination and repair. Removable Scale Filter The mesh filter in the kettle spout traps scale. If you fill the kettle via the spout, the effectiveness of this filter will be reduced. To remove the filter, allow the kettle to cool, open the lid, hold the filter as shown and press it out. Brush the filter in running water to remove any adhered scale. To replace, align the filter in the slot in the spout and press into place. SAFETY GUIDE Do not touch the body of the kettle when it is hot. Always hold the appliance by the handle when using it. Always ensure the lid is closed when in use. Failure to close the lid will prevent the thermostat from switching off and cause the kettle to boil dry. Keep the appliance well away from hot surfaces, and objects that can be damaged by heat. Ensure there is adequate room to operate the kettle and that steam can escape safely. Avoid contact with the steam from the spout when the water is boiling or just after it has switched off. Be careful when opening the lid for re-filling when the kettle is hot. Ensure that the kettle cannot fall into water. Do not fill or pour water from the kettle while it is on the base. Disconnect the kettle at the mains supply before filling or emptying the jug, before cleaning any of its components, and when it is not in use. Do not immerse the connecting cord in water or other liquids. Do not allow liquids to come into contact with the terminal pins of the kettle, its base or the connecting cord. Do not let the connecting cord overhang the edge of the work surface or allow it to touch hot surfaces or sources of heat or flame. If any part of this appliance is damaged or malfunctions in any way, or the connecting cord or mains plug is broken do not continue to use it. Seek expert assistance.
