If the instructions on the fabric label differ from this guide, follow the instructions on the label.
FILLING
You may use the iron with tap-water, but if you live in a hard water area, you should use distilled
water (not chemically descaled or softened water).
If you buy distilled water, check that it’s marketed as suitable for use in irons.
1. Unplug the iron.
2. Open the water inlet cover.
3. Hold the iron with the soleplate down.
4. Pour slowly, to let the air in the reservoir escape, otherwise you’ll cause an air lock and the
water will overflow.
5. Don’t fill past max, or water will escape in use.
6. Wipe up any spillage.
SWITCH ON

4.
Sit the iron on its heel.
Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable). The iron will
beep and the light in the handle will come on yellow, to show it’s in standby mode.
Press and release the temperature button to select the temperature you want.
The colour of the temperature light depends on the setting. The colours are:

The temperature light will flash while the iron is heating up, then come on continuously
when the set temperature is reached.
REDUCING TEMPERATURE
This takes a bit longer, as the iron has to lose the heat it has built up, so be patient. It’s best to
organise your ironing so that you don’t need to reduce the temperature.
STEAM IRONING
1.
2.
3.
4.
When steam ironing, you must set the temperature to ••• (green) or max (red).
If you don’t, you’ll get water on your clothes, not steam.
Wait till the temperature light stops flashing, then start ironing.
Pull and hold the steam trigger whenever you want steam. Release it to stop.
SPRAY
Water spotting affects some fabrics. Test this out on a hidden part of the fabric. This works with
dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir.
1. Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
2. Lift the iron off the fabric.
3. Aim the spray nozzle at the fabric.
4. Press the * button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the
system.
SHOT OF STEAM
This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir, and the
temperature is set to ••• (green) or max (red).
1. Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
2. Check that the temperature is set to ••• (green) or max (red).
3. Lift the iron off the fabric.
4. Press the ~ button.
5. Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
DRY IRONING
If you’re going to be dry ironing for 20 minutes or more, empty the reservoir first, to avoid
spontaneous bursts of steam.
1. Select the required temperature.
2. Wait till the temperature light stops flashing, then start ironing.
3. Don’t press the steam trigger when dry ironing.
VERTICAL STEAMING
Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
•
Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may build up,
causing mildew.
•
Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam.
•
Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
•
Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
1. Set the temperature control to max (red).
2. Wait till the light stops flashing.
3. Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
4. Pull and hold the steam trigger whenever you want steam. Release it to stop.

AFTER USE
1. Unplug the iron.
2. Open the water inlet cover.
3. Turn the iron upside down over a sink, and drain the reservoir.
4. Close the water inlet cover, and wipe off any moisture.
5. Sit the iron on its heel till it’s cold.
6. Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth.
7. Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar.
8. Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion.
SELF CLEAN
To reduce scale build-up, use the self clean function at least monthly in normal water areas,
more often in hard water areas.
You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out of the soleplate.
1. Fill the reservoir to the max mark.
2. Sit the iron on its heel.
3. Put the plug into the power socket.
4. Set the temperature to max (red), and wait till the temperature light stops flashing.
5. Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down.
6. Press the C button and hold it down.
7. Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl.
8. Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate.
9. When the reservoir is empty, release the C button.
10. Unplug the iron, and sit it on its heel to cool.
ANTI-SCALE
The anti-scale agent incorporated in the iron helps prevent the build-up of scale.
Don’t use a descaling solution, or you’ll destroy the anti-scale agent.
