Russell Hobbs 18267 - regency kettle User Manual
Read the instructions and keep them safe. Pass them on if you pass the kettle on.
Remove all packaging, but keep it in case you ever need to return the kettle.
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. Don’t use the kettle in a
bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
3 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.
4 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
5 Don’t touch hot surfaces. Use the handle and lid release.
6 Don’t open the lid while the water is heating.
7 Take care when pouring – pour slowly, and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
8 Don’t switch on unless the kettle contains at least 2 cups of water.
9 Don’t fill past the max mark, or it may spit boiling water.
10 Remove the kettle from its stand before filling or pouring.
11 Unplug the stand when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let the
kettle cool down before cleaning and storing away.
12 Check the lid is fully closed before switching the kettle on, or it may not switch off.
13 Keep the kettle, stand, cable, and plug away from sources of heat.
14 Don’t use the kettle for any purpose other than heating water.
15 Use the kettle only with the stand supplied (and vice versa).
16 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
17 Don’t use the kettle if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
18 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 3 times, to remove
manufacturing dust, etc.
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 the lid release button, to open the lid.
6 Fill the kettle with at least 2 cups of water, but don’t fill above max.
7 If you overfill, the kettle may spit boiling water.
8 Close the lid, and press it down, to lock it closed.
9 Check the lid is closed, or the kettle won’t switch off when it boils.
switching on
10 Put the kettle on the stand – take care not to spill.
11 Plug the stand into a power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
12 Move the switch to 1 – the lights on the switch and inside the kettle will glow, and
the kettle will heat up.
switching off
13 When the water boils, the kettle will switch itself off, and the lights will go out.
14 To switch off manually, move the switch to 0.
15 Lifting the kettle off the stand will also switch it off.
16 Remove the kettle from the stand before pouring.
17 To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and don’t over-tilt the kettle.
18 Don’t tilt the kettle backwards – water might get on to the control area.
19 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 the kettle off automatically, which then condenses and
escapes via vents under the kettle.
21 Don’t worry about discolouration on the floor of the kettle. 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.
23 A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
24 To avoid cycling on and off, remove the kettle from the stand and let it go cold.
25 Sit the kettle on the work surface till it’s cold.
26 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 to 0, or lift it off the stand.
2 Unplug the stand (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable), and let the kettle cool.
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 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 provided with 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

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

15 Switch the kettle off, and let it cool.

19 Rinse the filter under a running tap while brushing with a soft brush.
20 Rinse the kettle, in case scale particles have fallen inside.
22 Slide it down, into the guides behind the spout.
