For safety reasons, your Philips kettle has a maximum (MAX) level indicator that indicates how much water it can contain. If you fill your kettle above this MAX level, hot water could come out of the spout.
Also, if you do fill your kettle above this indication, water could get into the steam tube and cause the kettle to stay in the “ON” position.
Please do not add water above the maximum level indication.
If the above solution(s) did not help to solve your problem, please contact us.
