Russell Hobbs product_198 Product User Manual
Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the appliance on, pass on the
instructions too. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the appliance works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This appliance must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult.
2 Don’t put the kettle, stand, cable, or plug in any liquid; don’t use the kettle
in a bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
3 Don’t touch hot surfaces. Use the handle.
4 Don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water
5 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
6 Take care when pouring – pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
7 The scald hazard lasts long after boiling. Keep the kettle, stand, and cable away from
the edges of worktops and out of reach of children.
8 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
9 Wind excess cable beneath the stand.
10 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let the
kettle cool down before cleaning and storing away.
11 Check the lid is fully closed before switching the kettle on, otherwise it may not
switch off.
12 Check the kettle is properly located on the stand before switching on.
13 Don’t switch on unless the kettle contains at least 2 cups of water.
14 Don’t fill past max, or it may spit boiling water.
15 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
16 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
17 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
18 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
19 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
20 Don’t operate the appliance if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
21 If the cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent,
or someone similarly qualified, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
1 Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse. Do this three times, to remove
manufacturing dust, etc.
2 Put the stand on a stable, level surface. Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and
can’t be caught or tripped over.
3 Wind excess cable beneath the stand
warning keep clear, steam may escape from the lid.
Remove the kettle from the stand.
Squeeze the lid release button and pull the lid up and back.
Fill with at least 2 cups of water, but not above max
If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
Close the lid, and press down to lock it.
Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.
switching on
10 Plug the stand into the wall socket.
11 Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
12 Move the switch up to 1.
13 The light will come on, and the kettle will heat up.
switching off
14 When the water boils the kettle will switch off and the light will go out.
15 To switch off manually, move the switch down to 0.
16 Lifting the kettle off the stand will also switch the kettle off.
17 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
18 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
19 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards, water might get on to the control area. If this
happens, let the kettle dry before use – sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours.
20 When you lift the kettle, you may see moisture on the stand. Don’t worry – it’s the
steam used to switch off automatically, which then condenses and escapes via vents
under the kettle.
21 You may see some discolouration on the floor of the kettle. Again, don’t worry – it’s
due to the bonding of the element to the kettle floor.
using with insufficient water
22 This will shorten the life of the element. A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
23 To prevent the kettle cycling on and off, remove the kettle from the stand and let it
cool before replacing it on the stand.
24 Sit the kettle on the work surface till it’s cold.
25 Don’t fill the kettle till it’s cold, or it may spit.
care and maintenance
1 Check that the kettle is switched off – move the switch down to 0.
2 Unplug the stand, and let the kettle cool down fully before cleaning.
3 Wipe the kettle, inside and out, with a damp cloth. You may use a little household
detergent, but if you do, rinse well to avoid tainting the water.
4 Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
5 Don’t put the kettle or stand in any liquid.
6 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
descale regularly – even in soft water areas
7 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
8 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
9 All scale causes overheating, reduces the kettle’s life, and may trigger the boil-dry
10 So, even with soft water, descale regularly, to help keep your kettle in working order.
11 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts).
12 Follow the instructions on the descaler, rinse several times, then fill, boil and discard
the water, to ensure no residues are left.
¬ Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a
repair charge.
water filter
13 Scale particles suspended in the water may give it a cloudy or greasy appearance.
The filter will prevent these particles going into your drink. If you see deposits on
the filter, clean it, otherwise the performance of your kettle will drop, your drinks
may contain scale, and the water inside the kettle may look cloudy.
cleaning the filter
14 Check your hands are free from soap, or anything which might leave a taint.
15 Switch the kettle off, and let it cool.
16 Open the lid.
release the filter
17 Grip the tab on the top of the filter, and pull it upwards, out of the guides.
18 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush.
19 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
replace the filter
20 Slide it down, into the guides.
21 Close the lid.
warning don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water
The product must be earthed. It has a 13A BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363
plug. To replace the plug, fit the green/yellow wire to E or E, the blue
wire to N, and the brown wire to L. Fit the cord grip.
If in doubt, call an electrician.
