before first use
Remove all packaging including any soleplate protection before heating the
iron.
Wipe over the soleplate with a cloth moistened with methylated spirit. Remove the
methylated spirit with a damp cloth then dry the soleplate thoroughly.
Fill the water tank and then empty it. This will rinse out any foreign particles remaining in
the water tank from the manufacturing process. Never fill your iron directly under a tap.
Always use the measuring cup supplied.
Before connecting your iron to the mains supply, make sure your supply voltage is the
same as the one indicated on your iron.
When you first use your iron, there may be a slight odour and it may smoke slightly for the
first few minutes of operation. This is quite normal and will disappear.
filling your iron
Never add fabric conditioner, starches or any other chemicals to the water in
your iron.
1. Ensure the iron is switched off and unplugged from the mains supply socket.
2. Set the steam control to the no steam position (
).
3. Place your iron horizontally on a flat, stable, dry, heat resistant and level surface and
open the water tank inlet cover.
4. Using the supplied measuring cup, fill the water tank with ordinary tap water. To avoid
air locks, tilt your iron slightly while filling it.
5. Don’t fill the iron above the water level indicator MAX marking. Check the water level
by standing the iron on its heel.
6. When the iron is filled close the water tank inlet cover.
using your iron
We recommend that you:
•
Start by ironing those items of laundry that require the lowest temperature (e.g.
synthetics). Finish by ironing fabrics which respond best to higher temperatures and
steam—such as cotton and linen.
•
If you iron a fabric made of a blend of fibres set the temperature of your iron to the
most delicate fibre.
•
Never use the burst of steam button on silks or synthetics.
•
When using starch, it should be sprayed onto the reverse side of the fabric and the
soleplate cleaned more frequently.
•
Do not iron over sharp or hard objects such as buttons, studs or zippers as they will
scratch the soleplate of your iron.
Important
Your iron takes time to heat up and cool down. If you change the temperature setting on
your iron, you must give it time to adjust to the new setting.
This is especially important when you change from a high setting to a lower one. It
takes your iron longer to cool down than it does to heat up and this is the reason we
recommend that you begin ironing at lower temperatures.
If you do need to reduce the temperature of your iron, wait until the temperature indicator
light comes on and then goes off again before ironing. This will ensure that your iron has
reached the lower temperature and is not too hot for the fabric being ironed.
For example, you have been ironing using the lll setting and want to change to the ll
setting:
1. Move the temperature control dial to the ll setting. Initially, the temperature indicator
light will not be lit because your iron is still at a higher temperature.
2. Wait until the temperature indicator light comes on and then goes out again. Your iron
has now cooled to the correct temperature.
using your iron
Ironing without steam
If you intend to dry-iron fabrics there is no need to fill the water tank. However, if water is
already in the water tank, you don’t need to empty it.
1. Set the steam control to the no steam position (
) position.
2. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
3. Rotate the temperature control dial until the desired setting is aligned with the
indicator light/dial pointer.
4. The temperature indicator light will illuminate while your iron is heating up. When the
light goes out, your iron is ready to use.
Steam ironing
During steam ironing, if you do not allow your iron to reach the selected
temperature water may drip from the soleplate.
It is recommended that for harder to iron fabrics such as cotton and linen, steam should
be used when ironing.
When ironing cotton and linen, always select the highest temperature. Steam should
never be used on delicate fabrics like nylons, acrylics and synthetics.
1. Fill your iron with water.
2. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
3. Set the temperature control dial so it is within the steam range (ll or lll). The
hotter your iron, the more steam is generated.
4. The temperature indicator light will illuminate. When the temperature indicator light
goes out your iron is ready to use. The temperature indicator light will turn on and off
during ironing as your iron maintains the correct temperature.
5. Adjust the steam control lever to select the desired steam output.
6. Move the steam control lever backwards to increase the amount of steam, or
forwards to decrease the amount of steam.
7. The steam can be shut off at any time by setting the steam control to the no steam
(
) position.
Burst of steam
The temperature control dial must be set within the ll and
seconds between each press of the steam button.
lll
setting. Wait several
Press the shot of steam button whenever you have a stubborn crease that needs extra
steam. Steam will burst from the holes in the soleplate of your iron into the fabric.
using your iron
Vertical steam ironing
Never iron garments when they are being worn.
Your iron can be used for vertical steam ironing curtains, dresses on hangers etc.
1. Fill your iron with water.
2. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
3. Set the temperature control dial so it is within the steam range (ll or lll). The
hotter your iron, the more steam is generated.
4. The temperature indicator light illuminates to show that your iron is heating. When
the temperature indicator light goes out, your iron is ready to use.
5. Hold your iron 15cm (6 inches) from the fabric.
6. Press the shot of steam button. The steam will penetrate the fabric removing the
creases. To apply more steam press the shot of steam button again.
Precondition steam
Keep children away from the front of the iron and do not hold your fingers in
front of the soleplate when using the precondition steam feature.
For difficult areas (e.g. collars, cuffs, pockets, etc.) press the burst of steam button. The
special steam channels in the soleplate deliver more steam around the front part of the
iron preconditioning the fabric before you iron it for easier and faster ironing.
Spraying
The spray function will only operate when there is water in the water tank.
1. The water spray can be used to help iron heavy fabrics or difficult areas (collars,
pockets, sleeves, creases, etc). It can also be used when ironing delicate fabrics
which cannot be steam ironed.
2. Simply press the button as required to produce a spray of water. If the spray is being
used for the first time, or if the iron has been standing for some time, you may need
to press the spray button a few times before it works correctly.
Anti-drip feature
When the temperature of your iron is insufficient to create steam, the supply of water is
cut off automatically to avoid any drips from the soleplate.
using your iron
Anti-scale filter
•
Your iron is fitted with a permanent anti-scale filter. This filter is fixed and cannot be
removed for cleaning.
•
The filter is designed to reduce the build-up of limescale inside your iron. Limescale
occurs during steam ironing due to water hardness.
•
Water hardness varies from one area to another. The effectiveness of the filter will
depend on how ‘hard’ your water is.
Safety auto shut-off function
ALWAYS disconnect your iron from the mains supply socket after use. NEVER
leave the iron unattended with the Auto Shut-off function in operation.
Your iron will shut off if it has not been used for 10 minutes when resting on its heel, or
after 30 seconds if it is resting on its soleplate. The power/auto shut-off function light in
the iron handle will start to flash and your iron will sound a series of beeps. This will be
repeated whilst your iron is in auto shut-off mode. To restart your iron, gently move it until
the power/auto shut-off function light stops flashing.
care and cleaning
Do not use harsh abrasives, chemical cleaners or solvents to clean the exterior
of your iron because they will damage the surface.
Cleaning the soleplate of your Iron
After each use, allow your iron to completely cool down before wiping the soleplate with
a soft damp cloth. If polyester has burnt to the soleplate, iron a damp cotton cloth while
your iron is still hot. If necessary, allow your iron to completely cool down then wipe over
the soleplate with a soft cloth moistened with methylated spirits. Remove the methylated
spirit with a damp cloth. Make sure that the soleplate is completely dry.
Self-cleaning
Only press the self-clean button when you want to activate the self cleaning
system. Never press the self-clean button when ironing.
The self-clean function removes scale and impurities. Use the self-clean function once
every two weeks. If the water in your area is very hard, the self clean function should be
used more frequently.
1. Ensure your iron is switched off and unplugged from the mains supply socket.
2. Set the steam control to the no steam (
) position.
3. Fill your iron with water to the MAX level.
4. Stand your iron on its heel rest, plug in and switch on at the mains supply.
5. Set the temperature control dial to the highest (MAX) setting. Allow your iron to heat
up until the temperature indicator light goes out.
6. Unplug your iron and hold it over a sink with the sole-plate facing downwards.
7. Press and hold the self-clean button. Hot water and steam will be ejected from the
holes in the soleplate along with any impurities.
8. Release the self-clean button after one minute or when the water tank is empty.
9. Stand your iron on its heel rest, plug it in to the mains supply socket and switch on.
When the temperature indicator light goes out, iron an old piece of cloth to allow any
remaining water to escape.
10. After use, switch off and unplug your iron from the mains supply and allow it to fully
cool. Empty out any remaining water.

care and cleaning
Cleaning the steam holes
To remove build-up from the steam holes which may affect steam performance, use a
cotton wool tip moistened in methylated spirits. Wipe over with a damp cloth.
To clean the exterior of your iron, wipe over with a damp soft cloth and wipe dry. Ensure
the soleplate is then dried thoroughly.
Storing your iron
•
Set the steam control to the no steam (
) position.
•
Switch the mains supply socket off and remove the plug.
•
When the soleplate has cooled, empty the remaining water from the tank.
•
Always store your iron on its heel rest. Do not store your iron resting on its soleplate,
