Replacement Parts 0844 873 0719
If your steam generator
does not work, check the
following points:
Has the iron temperature
control been set to the
required temperature? Is
the plug in it’s socket? Is
the plug itself or the socket
faulty? (Check by plugging
in another appliance).
•
To prevent damage to the
textile being ironed, follow
the temperature guide
carefully. (Test on the inside
of the hem of the garment).
•
When ironing is complete,
remove the plug from the
socket, empty any
remaining water from the
tank, and allow to cool
before storage.
•
If you drop or severely
knock your steam

To fill the tank with water, press the
release button Ô and lift away the
spray unit Ì.

Auto-shut off
(42288, 42297, 42298 & 42299)

unit in a downward direction, taking
care not to damage the tank, and fill
water to the ‘Full’ mark.
Re-assembly C
ANTI-SCALE SYSTEM
Attach the tank to the spray unit,
taking care to align the parts
correctly.
The anti-scale cartridge is designed
to reduce the build-up of limescale
which occurs during steam ironing,
this will prolong the working life of
your iron. However, please note that
the anti-scale cartridge will not
completely stop the natural process
of limescale build-up.
Press the pump Ó a few times to
purge the air from the system, when
a fine mist of water is created, the
unit is ready for use.
Dry ironing
8
An iron heats up quicker than it
cools down so you’ll save time and
electricity.
When this occurs, press the steam
select button Î or the power switch
Á ‘ON’ once. The appliance will
switch on immediately and you need
to check, and select, the required
setting.
Locate the spray unit to the front of
the iron and press it home until the
unit locks into place.
1
It is always a good idea to begin with
‘cool’ fabrics and work up to higher
settings.
When the cartridge needs replacing,
the indicator light  will flash.
NOTE: The unit will not switch off,
but you need to replace the cartridge
as soon as possible.
Connect the appliance to a suitable
mains outlet.

FEATURES OF
YOUR STEAM
GENERATOR
Steam function
During the steaming process,
small amounts of water may be
ejected from the soleplate. This
is normal and can be avoided
by using the steam for short
amounts of time and only when
the iron is at the correct
temperature (the indicator light
on the iron goes out when
ready).
Cartridge
D
Sudden jolts of the boiler unit
can also cause water droplets
on the soleplate; therefore, do
not move the base unit during
ironing. We recommend for the
first time ironing that you iron
over an old towel.
Vertical steam
Hold the iron in a vertical
position between 1cm and 2cm
away from the item E. Press
the steam trigger ⁄, this will
create vertical steam. This
feature is especially useful for
removing creases from hanging
clothes, curtains, wall hangings.
Drawer

MAINTENANCE
To clean a stainless steel
soleplate
To keep the soleplate of your
iron clean and free of limescale,
we recommend that you use
one of the gentle chrome, silver
or stainless steel cleaners that
are generally available. Always
follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. To clean off melted
man-made fibres, set the iron
at 3-dot position and pass it
over a clean piece of cotton
which will draw the deposit off
the surface.
HELPLINE
If you have any difficulty with
your appliance, do not hesitate
to call us.
We are more likely to be able to
help than the store from where
you bought it.
To clean a coated soleplate
In the unlikely event of any
man-made fibre fusing to the
soleplate, set the iron at the
3- dot position and pass it over
a clean piece of cotton, this will
draw the deposit off the
surface.
Do not use scouring powder or
solution, as this could cause
damage to the coating.
To clean the
exterior
Allow the steam generator to
cool and wipe over with a
damp cloth and mild detergent,
then wipe with a dry cloth.
Please have the following
information ready to enable our
staff to deal with your query
quickly.
