28. Avoid scratching the soleplate on zippers, buttons, studs and hooks etc.
29. Do not fill the water tank directly from the tap. Use the water beaker instead.
30. Do not fill the water tank past the ‘MAX’ level as this may cause the iron to leak
during use.
31. Deposits or minerals in water supply will generate scales which may block the
steam holes in the soleplate. Use of distilled water is therefore recommended.
32. Do not use chemically distilled water.
33. Empty the water tank after each use. Be careful when emptying the water tank
as the water inside the appliance may be very hot.
34. Do not use fragrances, fabric softeners, starch, cleaning agents, vinegar or any
other chemical liquids in the water tank as they may damage the appliance.
35. Immediately unplug the iron from mains power if malfunction occurs.
36. This appliance is equipped with a protective thermal fuse which will blow if the
iron overheats. If this occurs, discontinue use and do not attempt to use the
appliance before it has been serviced at an authorised service agent.
2
37. Any appliance that has been dropped or damaged should not be used until
examined by an authorized service center.
38. If the mains supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
39. After ironing, allow the appliance to cool down for approximately 30 minutes on
its heel stand before handling or cleaning the appliance.
40. Allow the Iron to cool down and dry completely before moving it to storage.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
POWER SUPPLY CORD
1.
Do not attempt to modify the power cord or plug in any way.
2.
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming entangled
in or tripping over a longer cord.
3. If the power supply cord is too short, do not use an extension cord. Have a
qualified electrician or serviceman install an outlet near the appliance.
NOTE: Neither Westinghouse nor the retailer can accept any liability for damage
to the product or personal injury resulting due to failure to observe the electrical
connection procedures.
INSTALLATION GUIDE
1.
Carefully unpack your iron.
2.
Carefully remove packaging around the iron and straighten the power cord. Do
not remove any warning labels.
3.
Before using for the first time, remove any stickers or protective foil from the
soleplate. Clean the Cera-Silk soleplate with a soft cloth. Avoid scratching the
soleplate with any sharp or abrasive objects.
4.
Fill the water tank as described in the Filling the iron with water instructions on
page 5.
5.
Connect the plug to mains supply and turn the temperature dial to ‘MAX’ setting.
The temperature indicator light indicates that the iron is heating up. Have the iron
stand up on its heel rest on a stable surface. Once the indicator light goes out, the
set temperature has been reached.
6.
Move the steam control switch to ‘STEAM’ position – steam starts to come out of
the steam holes on the soleplate. You can now begin ironing. It is recommended
to do the first ironing e.g., on an old towel as there may be dust remaining in the
tank from the manufacturing process. Once the water tank runs empty and no
more steam is produced, the installation is complete.
7.
The iron has been treated for protection during manufacturing and transport, and
as a result, the iron may emit vapours when switched on for the first time. This is
normal and should cease after a short while.
DANGER Do not under any circumstances immerse the iron, power cord or power
plug in water or any other liquid.

IRON OPERATION
USING YOUR IRON FOR DRY IRONING
1. Insert the plug into a power outlet and turn the power on.
2.
Ensure the steam control switch is in ‘0’ (= No steam) position.
3. Turn the temperature dial to the desired setting according to the ironing
recommendation on your garment label. The temperature indicator light will light
up, indicating that the iron is heating up. When the light goes out the iron has
reached the set temperature and is ready for use.
NOTE: When changing the temperature setting from higher to lower temperature,
allow the appliance to reach the lower temperature before using it on the garment.
FILLING THE IRON WITH WATER
Make sure the iron is not plugged in and the temperature dial is in the ‘OFF’ position.
Tilt the unit to a 45 degree angle and using the water beaker, pour water into the water
inlet opening until ‘MAX’ level is reached.
DANGER Do not under any circumstances immerse the iron, power cord or power
plug in water or any other liquid.
CAUTION The power plug must be removed from the outlet before the water
reservoir is filled with water.
NOTE: Do not overfill the water tank as this may cause the iron to leak during use.
NOTE: Deposits or minerals in water supply will generate scales which may block the
steam holes in the soleplate. Use of distilled water is therefore recommended. Do not
use chemically distilled water.
NOTE: Do not use fragrances, fabric softeners, starch, cleaning agents or any other
chemical liquids in the water tank as they may damage the appliance.

IRON OPERATION - CONTINUED
SPRAYING
The spray mist can be used for both dry and steam ironing at any temperature setting.
Press the spray button to release a mist of water through the spray nozzle and dampen
the fabric as required.
NOTE: Before using the spray function ensure that the water tank is at least ¼ full. If
the tank has run dry, refill with distilled water as recommended in the Filling the iron
with water instructions. It may be necessary to press the spray button a few times to
re-prime the pump before mist appears.
STEAM IRONING
1. Fill with distilled water as recommended in the Filling the iron with water
instructions.
2.
Set the temperature dial setting to ‘MAX’ and wait until the appliance heats up
and temperature indicator light goes out.
3.
Set the steam control switch to desired position. Increase the steam output by
pushing the steam selector to the left and decrease steam by moving it to the
right towards ‘0’.
NOTE: Steaming is generally not recommended for synthetic fabrics such as nylon
and polyester. Always follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions.
USING THE SHOT OF STEAM
The shot of steam feature can be used for both dry and steam ironing at high
temperatures. The shot of steam is particularly efficient in smoothing out stubborn
creases on heavy fabrics.
1.
Fill with distilled water as recommended in the Filling the iron with water
instructions.
2. Set the temperature dial above the two dot (
) setting and wait until the
appliance heats up and the temperature indicator light goes out.
3.
Press the shot of steam button to release a powerful shot of steam from the
soleplate.
DANGER Ejected steam is extremely hot and therefore should be avoided. Never
direct the steam towards yourself or other people as this may cause burns or scalding.
NOTE: To prevent water droplets appearing from the soleplate do not press the shot
of steam button continuously for more than 5 seconds. Keep a brief interval between
shots for optimal results.
NOTE: The shot of steam can also be applied when the iron is in an upright position.
This ‘vertical steam’ feature is ideal for removing creases on curtains, hanging suits
etc.
ANTI-DRIP SYSTEM
Your iron is equipped with an anti-drip system which is designed to prevent water
from escaping through the soleplate when using lower iron temperatures, thus helping
to avoid water marks on your garments.
6
IRON OPERATION - CONTINUED
During use, the anti-drip system may emit a clicking sound, particularly during heatup or when the iron is cooling down. This is normal and indicates that the anti-drip
system is functioning correctly.
CAUTION The iron must not be left unattended while it is connected to the supply
mains. Unplug the appliance from mains before cleaning, filling with water, immediately
after use, when moving it to storage and when not in use.
CAUTION: Note that this symbol on the garment
label means that the fabric should not be ironed.
