Cleaning the Filter - Electric Kettle

Possible Solutions

Does the Electric Kettle Filter Need to be Cleaned?

  1. Remove the Filter from the Electric Kettle (see “Inserting and Removing the Filter”) and then rinse under running water.
  2. Clean under hot water with a soft brush or cloth to remove deposits, and replace the Filter by sliding the Filter into the slot behind the spout.

NOTE: If calcium deposits remain on the Filter, let it stand overnight in a solution of water and white vinegar. Rinse the Filter thoroughly and replace it in the Electric Kettle.

Does the Filter Need to be Inserted or Removed?

Inserting the Filter: The Filter is located behind the Spout inside the Electric Kettle. Open the Lid. Slide the filter down into the slot behind the spout, ensuring that the curve facing outward on the filter matches the curve of the electric kettle.

Removing the Filter: Open the Lid. Grasp the top of the Filter behind the Spout and then pull out to remove.
