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 use fabric conditioner, starches or any other chemicals or additives.
1. Ensure the iron is switched off and unplugged from the mains supply socket.
2. Set the steam control to the no steam position (0).
3. Place the 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 the 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.
TIP: We recommend that you:
•
Start with the fabrics to be ironed on a low temperature such as synthetic material.
Finish ironing with those fabrics which respond best to higher temperatures such as
linen.
•
If you iron a fabric made of a blend of fibres; set the temperature control dial for 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 and zippers, as these
will scratch the surface of the soleplate.

Ironing without steam
You may see this ‘Do not steam’ symbol on certain delicate fabrics. 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 do not need to empty it.
1. Set the steam control to the no steam position (0).
2. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
3. Set the temperature selector to the required temperature.
4. The indicator light will illuminate while the iron is heating up.
5. When the light goes out, your iron is ready to use. The indicator light will continue to
turn on and off during ironing as the iron maintains the soleplate temperature.
Steam ironing
During steam ironing, if you do not allow the 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. Following the steps on page 5 fill the iron with water.
2. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
3. Turn the temperature selector until the pointer is within the steam setting range.
The indicator light will illuminate. When the indicator light goes out the iron is ready
to use. The indicator light will continue to turn on and off during ironing as the iron
maintains the soleplate temperature.
4. Adjust the steam control for the desired steam output.
5. Adjust the steam control lever to the right to increase the amount of steam

using your iron
Burst of Steam
Note: The temperature selector must be set within the steam setting range (see page
6) when using the shot of steam function. Wait for several seconds between each
press of the steam button.
1. 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 into the fabric.
Vertical Steam Ironing
Never iron garments when they are being worn.
1. Your iron can be used for vertical steam ironing. This process can be applied to
curtains, dresses on hangers etc.
2. Following the steps on page 5 fill the iron with water.
3. Plug your iron into the mains supply and switch on.
4. Turn the temperature selector until the pointer is within the steam setting range. The
hotter the iron, the more steam is generated.
5. The temperature indicator light will illuminate to show that the iron is heating.
6. When the indicator light goes out, the iron is ready to use. The indicator light will
cycle on and off during ironing as the iron maintains the soleplate temperature.
7. Hold the iron 15cm (6 inches) from the fabric.
8. 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.
Spraying
Note: 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 spray button as required to emit 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 to prime the spray before it works
correctly.
using your iron
Note: When the temperature selector is changed from a high setting to a lower
setting during ironing, the indicator light will go out immediately. This indicates that
the iron is cooling to the selected temperature. To ensure that the iron has reached
the selected temperature and is not too hot, wait until the indicator light comes on
again, and then goes out before ironing.
Anti-Drip Function
•
The supply of water is cut off automatically to avoid any drips from the soleplate
when the temperature of the iron is insufficient to produce steam.
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.
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 on your Iron
After each use, allow iron to cool fully before wiping the soleplate with a damp soft cloth.
If polyester has burnt to the soleplate, iron a damp cotton cloth while hot. If necessary,
allow unit to cool fully and wipe over the soleplate with a soft cloth and a small amount of
methylated spirits. Remove the methylated spirit with a damp cloth. Ensure soleplate is
dried thoroughly.
Only press the self-clean button when you want to activate the self cleaning
system. Never press the self-clean button when ironing.
Self-cleaning
1. 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.
2. Ensure the iron is switched off and unplugged from the mains supply socket.
3. Set the steam control to the no steam position (0).
4. Using the measuring cup, fill the iron with water to the MAX fill level.
5. Stand the iron on its heel rest, plug in and switch on at the mains supply.
6. Rotate the temperature selector until the pointer is aligned with the ‘MAX’ setting.
7. The indicator light will illuminate when the iron is heating up. When the light goes out,
the iron is ready to use.
8. Unplug the iron and hold it over a sink with the sole-plate facing downwards.
9. Press the ‘SELF CLEAN’ button. Hot water and steam will be ejected from the holes
in the soleplate, along with any impurities.
10. Release the ‘SELF CLEAN’ button after one minute or when the water tank is empty.
11. Stand the iron on its heel rest, plug into the supply and switch on. When the indicator
light goes out, iron an old piece of cloth to allow any remaining water to escape.
12. After use, switch off and unplug the iron at the mains supply and allow to cool fully.
Empty 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.
Putting your Iron Away
1. Set the steam control to the no steam position (0).
2. Turn the power off and remove the plug from the power outlet.
3. When the soleplate has cooled, empty remaining water from the tank.
Storage
1. Always store the iron on its heel rest, allowing to cool for 30 minutes.
2. Do not store the iron with the soleplate facing down, or in the carton.
3. Do not wrap the cord around the soleplate. The cord can be neatly wrapped around
the heel of the iron.
