film on the walls or the element, descale the kettle and its filter.
Scale filter
Your kettle is fitted with a scale filter to prevent loose particles
of scale being poured into your beverage. This filter is both
removable and washable. You should remove and clean the
water filter when you notice any deposits being left on the
filter or if the pouring efficiency is impaired.
Pouring
- Remove the kettle from the power base and carefully
pour out the water. Do not tilt the kettle suddenly or
pour water out at too sharp an angle.
- When you lift the kettle from the base, you may see
moisture on the top surface of the base. Condensation on
the base is perfectly normal, and should not be a cause
for alarm.
Removing the scale filter
- Allow the kettle to cool down fully and disconnect the
appliance from the mains electrical supply. Make sure
that your hands are clean and free from soap, cream or
anything which might taint the water.
- Empty the kettle and remove the filter as shown in fig.
1. Rinse under a tap whilst brushing with a soft brush
(fig. 2) and replace the filter (fig. 3). Filter may pose
suffocation risk, do not let it unattended after
cleaning.
Please note: Empty the kettle after each use. Rinse the
kettle with fresh water if you have not used for more than two
days. To reduce energy consumption and waste of water, use
only the amount of water you need.
SAFETY DEVICES
To clean the kettle and the scale filter
It is vital to clean and descale regularly in order to maintain
good working order. Excessive scale build-up may affect the
performance of the product and shall be avoided.
- Use descaler for kettles (tip: use citric-acid based
descaling solutions). When limescale starts forming on
the heating element, buy a suitable descaler for kettles
and descale according to the instructions given on the
descaler pack.
- After descaling, boil repeatedly with fresh water and
rinse thoroughly to completely eliminate all residues of
descaler which could damage the appliance. Repeat the
boil and rinse steps for at least three times.
- If the filter requires descaling, remove and immerse in
the same descaling solution.
- Make sure electric parts are completely dry before using
the kettle.
1) Automatic ON/OFF switch:
Your kettle is fitted with an ON/OFF switch which
automatically switches off once the water has boiled.
If the kettle has just boiled, wait a minute or so before
re-boiling the kettle. Do not attempt to hold the ON/
OFF switch in the on position or adjust the switch
mechanism.
2) Safety cut-out:
If the kettle is switched ON with too little or no water, it is
protected against damage by a safety cut-out which will
switch off the power. If this cut-out operates, disconnect
the kettle from the mains supply and leave to cool down
before refilling with cold water (otherwise the element
could be damaged).
3) If kettle is lifted from base while operating (ON), it will
automatically switch off.
