Congratulations on the purchase of your Russell Hobbs appliance. Each unit is manufactured to
ensure safety and reliability. Before using the appliance for the first time, please read the instruction
booklet carefully and keep it for future reference. Pass it on if you pass on the appliance.
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed.

Don’t press, just touch them.
In some cases, it may detect your finger before it actually touches.
If the kettle is inactive, and you don’t touch the controls for 5 minutes, the lights will go out to
save electricity.
To wake the kettle, touch any of the touch controls.
Fill the kettle with water to the ‘max’ level, boil, discard the water, and then rinse. Do this three
times, to remove any dust, residues, etc., from the kettle.
Ensure the filter is in place; otherwise the kettle may not switch off and may spit water from
the spout.
Place the power base on a stable, level surface.
Route the cable so it does not overhang, and cannot be caught or tripped over.
Wind excess cable beneath the power base.
Caution: If the kettle has just boiled it will be full of steam. Keep hands clear as steam will
escape from the kettle when opening the lid.
Remove the kettle from the power base.
Press the lid release button to open the lid.
Fill the kettle with at least 2 cups of water.
Do not fill above the ‘max’ line. If overfilled, the kettle may spit boiling water.
Close the lid.
Check the lid is fully closed or the kettle may not switch off when it boils.
Caution: Keep clear, as steam will escape from the spout when boiling.
Plug the power cord into the wall power outlet and switch it on.
Place the kettle on the power base – take care not to spill any water.
The buttons will flash twice then glow steadily
Touch the button marked with the temperatures you want.
The temperatures available are: 100 (boil), 95 (coffee), 90, 80, 70 and 60 (°C).
The button will flash and the kettle will start to heat up.
30792&30792BLK_IB4_041111.indd 5

PULSING ELEMENT (applies only when temperatures less than 100° have been
Initially you will hear the element pulse on, off, and on again as it works to control the
temperature accurately.
When it reaches the set temperatures, the button will stop flashing and glow steadily.
After 5 minutes, the light will go out and the kettle will go to sleep.
If you get the temperature wrong and want to change it:
a) Touch the correct button
b) The button will flash while the water heats or cools
c) When it reaches the set temperature, the button will stop flashing and glow steadily
Reducing the temperatures may take a long time – you may prefer to pour the hot water
away and refill with cold water.
To switch off manually
a) During heating (button flashing)
i. Touch the flashing button once.
b) At temperature (button steady)
i. Touch the steady button twice.
The lights will go out and the kettle will go to sleep.
When not using, switch off the wall power outlet and/or unplug the power base.
Lift the kettle off the power base by the handle to pour.
To avoid the risk of splashing, pour slowly and do not over-tilt the kettle.
There may be some discolouration on the floor of the kettle. This is due to the bonding of
the element to the kettle floor.
Do not tilt the kettle backwards as water might get into the control area.
If this happens, empty any remaining water and allow the kettle to dry before further use
– sit it somewhere warm for 12 hours.
When you lift the kettle, you may see moisture on the power base. This is the steam used to
switch the kettle off automatically, which then condenses and escapes via vents under the
kettle. This is normal.

Using the kettle with insufficient water will shorten the life of the element.
If the kettle is accidently switched on when it does not contain sufficient water, a boil-dry
cut-out will switch the kettle off.
The kettle must be removed from the power base to reset the cut-out.
Sit the kettle on a heat resistant surface until it has fully cooled.
Do not fill the kettle until it is cooled or it may spit.
Check that the kettle is switched off by lifting the kettle from the power base and replacing it.

Wipe over the outside of the kettle and power base with a damp cloth. A mild dishwashing
detergent may be used if required.
Keep all connectors and sockets dry.
Do not immerse the kettle or power base in liquid.
Do not use alkaline cleaning agents or harsh abrasives when cleaning this appliance.
Clean the inside of the kettle using the instructions in the “DE-SCALE REGULARLY”
Water contains minerals that will form deposits on the inside of your kettle, commonly referred to
as scaling. Scaling discolours the internal surfaces and can affect the performance.
To maintain the performance of your kettle, it should be de-scaled every three months or so. Descale more frequently if you live in a hard water area.
Add 2 to 3 teaspoons of citric acid or a commercial de-scaler to the empty kettle.
Fill the kettle with fresh cold water to the MAX level mark on the water gauge.
30792&30792BLK_IB4_041111.indd 7

Set the temperature of the kettle to 1000 and allow kettle to boil.
Once the water has boiled allow the kettle to cool.
Once the kettle has cooled, discard the water into the sink.
Rinse after de-scaling
Fill the kettle with fresh cold water to the MAX level mark on the water gauge.
Set the temperature of the kettle to 1000 and allow kettle to boil.
Discard the water into the sink.
Repeat the rinsing process 3 times, discarding the water in the kettle each time.
NOTE: Products returned under warranty with faults due to scale may be subject to a repair charge.
Scale particles suspended in the water may give it a cloudy or greasy appearance. The filter will
prevent these particles going into your drink. Remove and clean the filter regularly.
Check your hands are free from soap, hand cream, or anything which might leave a taint.
Switch the power off and remove the plug from the wall power outlet.
Allow the kettle to cool down fully.
Open the lid.
Pull the filter up and out of its housing.
NOTE: Take care not to press on the mesh part of the filter – you may damage it.
Rinse the filter under a running tap whilst brushing with a soft brush.
Rinse the kettle in case scale particles have fallen inside.
Turn the filter so the tab at the top of the filter faces the rear of the kettle.
Slide it down into the guides in the filter housing. Ensure it is firmly in place.
Refill the kettle and close the lid.
Caution: Do not use the kettle without the filter in place – it may spit boiling water.
