I have a Sunbeam electrical kettle that started leaking. I took it apart and found a crack in one of the rubber gasket/grommet pieces that hold the plastic water reservoir in place on the metal kettle base. I tried ordering a replacement one and was told that it wasn't possible (they don't have a code for that part, or some such nonsense).
So, the options are:
- use some sort of glue to fix the crack in the gasket
- toss out the gasket and seal around the hole with something like caulk or glue
My problem with either option is knowing what glue/sealant to use that would be appropriate for something holding drinking water and that frequently goes back and forth between 20C and 100C.
Here's a link to the kettle in question: http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/red-chrome-kettle-bvsbkt3234r-033/6000065495084
Edit: I have a small tube of Krazy Glue... Would that be safe?
