20 Most Recent Krups FLF2 Cordless Electric Kettle Questions & Answers

This is a known issue with Krups kettles. If you are a handy person then you can remove the base and use a high temp gasket maker (auto shops have it) to add to existing silicone seal which goes bad after a couple of years.

Unfortunately it's unfixable. A few recent Philips models do it as well and it's worst in hard water areas. Basically the cause is that a tiny bit of water gets into the bottom seam each time the kettle is used and leaves a residue behind when it dries out. Over time, the residue builds up and forces the seam apart so the leak gets worse.

All you can realistically do is hope that it's still under warranty and demand that Krups replace it, preferably with a different model. If they won't then you may have to exert whichever consumer rights exist in your country, but one way or another you need to stop using your kettle (it's dangerous!) and replace it with another.

Join the club ---I'm taking ours back this afternoon to BB&B. It's still under warranty and we have the receipt.

Buy a new one. Take the defective one, repack it in the old box and return it with the new receipt. Av a cup o tea.

The thermostat is not shutting the unit down and cycling it on/off as it should. This will cause the power cord to overheat and it will catch fire. STOP using this unit and either replace it or have it repaired. More than likely cheaper to just replace it.
