Do not touch hot surfaces; use handles or knobs. To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plug or appliance in water or any other liquid. Close supervision is necessary when appliance is used near children. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow the Steamer to cool before putting on or taking off parts. The Steamer only works when the unit is plugged in and the power switch is on. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries and invalidate any warranty you may have. Do not use outdoors, or on or near direct heat sources Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces or come into contact with naked heat source. Do not overfill. Do not use this appliance for any use other than the intended use. This appliance is for household use only. Liquid or steam should not be directed towards equipment containing electrical components such as interiors of ovens This appliance is an attended appliance, and as such should never be left ON or whilst hot without adult supervision. The jet of steam emitted can be very powerful; so make sure it is not directed at persons, pets or delicate items. The Steamer’s tank should be filled only with cool/cold water only after the unit is disconnected from the power supply. NEVER FILL THE TANK WITH HOT WATER. NEVER fill with boiled water, even if allowed to cool. The Steamer takes a few minutes to reach operating temperature. During this time, the Steamer head will become hot but not totally effective. You may hear the Steamer’s heating system, this is entirely normal and not a cause for product returns. ALWAYS empty the water from the Steamer after use. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE BEFORE USE Check that the voltage of the appliance corresponds to the mains voltage of your home. This appliance is fitted with an earth for extra safety.

ASSEMBLE YOUR NEW GARMENT STEAMER USING YOUR NEW GARMENT STEAMER Check that you have unpacked all the items in the box and safely removed all the packaging (some items are packed in the polyfoam). There may be some water residue in the tank from Quality Control processes at the factory. This is not a cause for concern or return. Detach the water tank (pull upwards) and on the underside is a knurled nut. Unscrew this and add water…then refasten the knurled nut and fit into the base of the Garment Steamer. It will only fit in one way. Fit the steam hose, there is a ridge on the hose that aligns with a slot, push in then turn anti clockwise. Loosen the nut; fit the telescopic tube assembly, there is a ridge on the tube that aligns with a slot, push in then turn anti clockwise. Then tighten the nut clockwise. Adjust the tubes for height, open the clips, adjust the height then close the clasp to secure the tubes. NEVER use boiled water, NEVER use hot water. ALWAYS use cool water and, if you are in a hard water area (if your kettle furs up, this applies to you), we recommend that you use filtered water – see separate order form for our filter jug offer. You will not be covered by our warranty if you don’t follow this advice. Ensure the Steam handle is in its cradle, then connect the power supply and switch on. After a few moments, you will see and hear the steam. Fit the shirt/blouse to the hanger and, gripping and gently pulling the lower edge of the front/rear panel or sleeve whilst steaming will deliver the best, fastest results. You can steam the detail features like pockets and collars. Steaming hanging draperies will help de-odourise and also will aid sanitizing. Your Garment Steamer comes with a trouser crease tool, long bristle steam tool and pad steam tool. ALWAYS fit these when the Steam Handle is cool. The trouser crease tool fits on to the tab on the Steam handle underside, the handle spring loaded against the Steam handle; the other tools clip on the top of the handle, there is a recess. ALWAYS fit these when the Steam Handle is cool. Fit the hanger to the tube, then press the button and the hanger arms will open out. Your new Garment Steamer comes with a trouser crease tool and 2 brushed steam tools. ALWAYS FIT THESE WHEN THE STEAM HANDLE IS COOL. Note the Steam Handle cradle in place. LOOKING AFTER YOUR NEW GARMENT STEAMER ALLOW THE STEAM HANDLE AND THE WATER IN THE BODY TO COMPLETELY COOL BEFORE STORAGE. Always empty the Water Tank when not in use – lift the water tank from the body, pour any remaining water out from the underside filler. There may be some water remaining in the body cavity – this is normal. Wait for it to be completely cool before carefully pouring away from the drain plug located on one side, by the wheel, into a bowl. REMEMBER – this water may still be hot. Always neatly wrap the power cord but not tightly, do not let the plug stay in the water tank cavity. Refit the tank, store in a level orientation. HELP! I THINK MY NEW GARMENT STEAMER HAS GONE WRONG. I OPENED THE BOX AND THERE IS SOME WATER IN THE TANK. There may be some water residues from our QC processes, and this is not a cause for concern or return. I SWITCH IT ON BUT NOTHING HAPPENS Is the plug connected correctly? Have you got water in the tank? If it’s the first use, it can take up to 5-minutes for the steam system to become wholly functional.

Thank you I ACCIDENTALLY USED THE GARMENT STEAMER WITH NO WATER. HAVE I DAMAGED THE STEAM STEAMER? The Steam Steamer is fitted with an automatic safety system, and in the event of dry use it will operate to cut the power, although the unit will get hot until the temperature that triggers the safety devices is reached. Switch off and leave to cool before correct re-use. I CAN HEAR THE MOTOR WORKING BUT NO STEAM COMES OUT Check you have water in the tank AND it is fitted correctly. If you haven’t used the Garment Steamer for some time, it will take a few minutes to get up to steam. There may be a small degree of water spit from the Steam handle before first use, this is entirely normal, Ensure the Steam hose is not kinked – note that this gets hot in use. I WAITED UNTIL STEAM IS AVAILABLE BUT WATER, NOT STEAM, COMES OUT THE STEAMER HEAD Steam can remain in the system from previous use, this may condense back to liquid state from steam state. This water may remain inside until the next use, and it may be ejected as water at the outset of the new steaming session. This is normal and is not a cause for concern or return.
