Default Krups tea kettle leaks

We've been using a Krups electric tea kettle (model #856) for
a few years and it has been great, but it recently developed
a small leak.

Does anyone know whether this can be fixed?...or should we just
get a new kettle? Thanks.

My only suggestion would be to use a two part epoxy if it is just a
crack in the plastic. Seal it fromt he outside not the inside to
minimize water contact with the epoxy. Or if you want to be adventurous
you can heat up a piece of metal and use it to re-melt the plastic to
seal it.

If it isn't plastic, then you'd have to decide if anyhing will seal it.
Possibly a two part epoxy would still work.

I'd say a few years got your money's worth, and it may be time to move
on. Zojirushi makes excellent electric kettles and I think many here
would easily recommend them. They cost a bit more but should wear like
iron.

best of luck,

I'd agree here -- maybe it's time for a new one? Where's the crack?

I personally though like the control I have over a regular electric
kettle, rather than a Zojirushi, which boils and reboils water without
instant control. The cost certainly is a factor as well.

Both of our Krups electric kettles leaked. We have had them for a few years. Is the problem related to a failed seal?

Where are they leaking? And why would there be a seal? Any place where
there is any kind of seal or seam is suspicious.
