Russell Hobbs product_235 Product User Manual
Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the kettle on, pass on the
instructions too. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the kettle works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The kettle must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult.
Use and store it out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the kettle, stand, cable, or plug in liquid.
3 Don’t use the kettle in a bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
4 Don’t touch hot surfaces. Use the handle.
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 Fill the kettle with at least 2 cups of water, but don’t fill past max, or it may spit
boiling water.
14 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
15 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
16 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
17 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
18 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
19 Don’t use the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
20 If the cable is damaged, return the kettle, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Fill to max, boil, discard the water, then rinse. Do this three times, to remove
manufacturing dust, etc.
dual elements
This kettle has a high power element for boiling, and a low power element for keeping
1 Put the stand on a stable, level surface.
2 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be caught or tripped over.
3 Wind excess cable beneath the stand
caution keep clear, steam may escape from the lid
4 Remove the kettle from the stand.
5 Press and release the lid button, to open the lid.
6 Fill with at least 2 cups of water, but not above max.
7 If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
8 Press the lid down to secure it.
9 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.
Check that the keep warm switch is off (slide it away from the kettle).
Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
Plug the stand into the wall socket.
The window will glow blue.
Move the boil switch to 6.
The window will glow red, and the kettle will start to heat up.
When it boils, it’ll reset the boil switch and turn the main element off.
The window glow will revert to blue.
To turn the main element off manually, move the switch to 7, or simply lift the kettle
off the stand and replace it.
keeping warm
19 To keep the water warm after it has boiled, and shorten the boiling time when next
you use the kettle, slide the keep warm switch towards the kettle.
20 The keep warm light will come on. The window glow will remain blue.
21 It’s best not to turn the keep warm function on after the water has boiled, or the
water may not actually reach boiling point.
22 After use, you must turn the keep warm function off manually, by sliding the keep
warm switch away from the kettle, towards the handle.
23 It won’t turn itself off, even if there’s no water in the kettle.
, If you forget, and leave it on, it won’t do any harm (except to your electricity bill), but
the kettle will get hot – let it cool before filling, to avoid spitting.
window glow – what the colours mean
the kettle is cut off from the electricity supply
the kettle and stand are powered, but the boil switch is off
the boil switch is on, and the water is heating to boil
check the water level
24 If you’re using the keep warm function, check the water level every time you pour.
25 When the water level gets down to about 2 cups, top up the kettle, and boil it again.
26 Don’t put the kettle back on the stand if it contains less than 2 cups of water.
27 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
28 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
29 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.
30 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.
31 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.
insufficient water
32 Boiling with insufficient water will shorten the life of the main element. A boil-dry
cut-out will switch the kettle off.
33 To prevent the kettle cycling on and off, remove it from the stand, and sit it on the
work surface till it’s cold.
34 Don’t fill the kettle till it’s cold, or it may spit.
care and maintenance
35 Unplug the stand from the wall socket, and let the kettle cool down before cleaning.
36 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.
37 Wipe the stand with a damp cloth.
38 Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
39 Don’t put the kettle or stand in any liquid.
40 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
descale regularly – even in soft water areas
41 Limescale may be white, coloured, even rusty-looking, but it’s normally visible.
42 Phosphate scale isn’t generally visible, but it’s there, even in soft water areas.
43 All scale causes overheating, which reduces the life of the element, and may trigger
the boil-dry cut-out. So, even in a soft water area, descale at least monthly, to help
keep your kettle in working order.
44 Use a descaler suitable for plastic products (all kettles have plastic parts). Follow the
instructions on the descaler, then rinse several times, fill, boil and discard the water,
to remove all chemical residues.
, Products returned under guarantee with faults related to scale will be subject to a
repair charge.
water filter
45 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
46 Check your hands are free from soap, or anything which might leave a taint.
47 Remove the kettle from the stand.
48 Open the lid.
49 Slide the filter up and out of the guides on either side of the spout.
50 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush.
51 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
52 Slide the filter down into the guides.
caution don’t use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water
