Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect. • Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing. • Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water or emptying and when not in use. • Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron. Take it to an authorized service center for examination and/or repair. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used. • Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or near children. Do not leave iron unattended while plugged in or turned on or on an ironing board. • Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam. Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down – there may be hot water in the reservoir. • If the iron is not operating normally, disconnect from the power supply and have the iron serviced by an authorized service center. Or call Customer Service at 800-458-8407. • Your SUNBEAM® iron is designed to rest on the heel rest. Do not leave the iron unattended. Do not set the iron on an unprotected surface, even if it is on its heel rest. S PECIAL I NSTRUCTIONS • This is a 1200-Watt appliance. To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit. • If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 15-ampere cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it cannot be pulled or tripped over. FOR PRODUCTS PURCHASED IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug fits a polarized outlet only one way; if the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

Soleplate 13 12 10 I RONING T IPS • Always read garment labels and follow the manufacturer’s ironing instructions. • Sort the articles to be ironed according to the type of fabric. • You should first iron garments requiring low temperature (e.g., silks and synthetics) to avoid damaging them with an iron that is too hot. • If you are unsure of the fabric content of the garment, test a small area, such as a seam or facing, before ironing a visible area. Start with a low temperature and gradually increase the heat to find the best setting. • When changing the temperature from a high setting to a low setting, allow approximately 5 minutes for the lower temperature to be reached. • When steam ironing, use long, slow passes over the fabric. This will allow the steam to penetrate the fabric while allowing the heat of the soleplate to dry out the moisture. • To iron linens, turn garment inside out. Be careful not to use an iron that is too hot because the lining may melt or stick to the soleplate. • To iron zippers, use an ironing cloth or make sure the zipper is closed and iron over the flap. Never iron directly over an unprotected zipper. • Use the Ironing Guide to select the best setting and method for the fabric you plan to iron. TO FILL THE WATER RESERVOIR 1. Make sure the iron is unplugged. Set the Steam Lever to O/Off (Dry) and the Fabric Select Dial to OFF. 2. Lift the Water Fill Hole Cover. 3. Fill water cup with water.

With your other hand, pull the fabric tight. 4. Press the SHOT OF STEAM® button for approximately 3-second intervals as you move the iron across the wrinkled area. WARNING: To prevent the risk of burns, keep your hand away from the area being steamed. WARNING: DO NOT steam garments while wearing them; this may result in injuries. PATENTED MOTION SMART® AUTO-OFF FEATURE When the iron is plugged in, the Power Indicator will light steadily, indicating that there is power to the iron. If you leave the iron: • in a horizontal position without moving it, or accidentally tip the iron over, it will automatically stop heating after 30 seconds. The Power Indicator will blink to let you know that the iron has stopped heating. • in a vertical position (on its heel rest) without moving it, the iron will automatically turn off after 15 minutes. The Power Indicator will blink to let you know that the iron has stopped heating. IMPORTANT: The Power Indicator will continue to blink until the iron is unplugged or reset. To reset the iron: Move the iron back and forth and allow it to reheat for 2 minutes. The indicator will stop blinking and the iron will start heating again. WARNING: The patented MOTION SMART® Auto-Off is a safety feature, not a recommended means for turning your iron off. See “Caring for Your Iron After Use” for information on turning off your iron and storing it safely between use. ANTI-CALCIUM SYSTEM (select models only) The Anti-Calcium System is a permanent system located inside the water reservoir. This system removes calcium from the water and reduces calcium build-up on the soleplate. RETRACTABLE CORD SECTION (select models only) 1.

Run the iron over an all-cotton cloth to remove any residue. USING THE SELF-CLEANING FEATURE You should use the Self-Cleaning feature once a month to maintain the optimal performance of your iron. To use the Self-Cleaning feature: 1. Move the Steam Lever back and forth from O/Off (Dry) several times to remove debris and minerals from the Steam Valve. This keeps water flowing into the steam chamber. M AINTENANCE CLEANING THE ANTI-CALCIUM SYSTEM (select models only) The STEAM MASTER® iron houses an anti-calcium filter in the reservoir, which eliminates impurities from the water. To prolong the efficiency of this filter: 1. Unplug the iron and allow it to cool. 2. Locate the water cup that accompanied the iron. Fill it with water to the Sunbeam logo in the top right corner. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to the water and fill the water reservoir with this solution. 3. Leave the solution in the water reservoir for 15 minutes, then empty it. 4. Fill the water reservoir a second time with the salt water solution and empty it again after 15 minutes. 5. Fill the tank with fresh water to rinse and empty.
