IDENTIFYING THE PARTS OF THE STEAMER
2
1) The Control Handle at the end of the
steamer hose sits just before the
nozzle. By grasping the control handle
you can aim the
direction of
the
steam released from the nozzle.
1
2) The Nozzle with its small hole openings
is at the end of the steamer hose.
Always sit the nozzle end of the hose
on the hanger rod for the hose when
not in use. Keep the nozzle pointed
upward and steam will rise from the
openings. Try not to point the nozzle
downwards so water does not condense
and drip from the nozzle.
3) The Hanger Rod has a convenient hook
shaped end for resting the nozzle end
of the steamer
hose.
It can be
extended and retracted by telescoping
the rod from its sleeve.

STEAMER OPERATION
STEP 1 - PREPARATION FOR USE

sediment or build-up inside the water Reservoir. Follow the steps for
cleaning and emptying the appliance if water was accidentally left in the
water bottle during storage of the unit.
Place the steamer hose with the nozzle end up on the hanger rod. Make
sure the hose is free of kinks. Make sure that the unit rolls freely.
STEP 2 - FILLING THE WATER BOTTLE
BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE APPLIANCE, FILL THE WATER BOTTLE:
a. Always make sure the appliance is unplugged before filling the bottle.
b. Fill the Water Bottle with ordinary, cool tap water.
c. Close the cap tight.
d. Replace the water bottle straight into the reservoir.
STEP 3 - TURNING ON THE POWER
a. Always check to make sure the ON/OFF Switch is OFF.
b. Plug the appliance into an electric outlet.
c. Turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position.
d. The power indicator light shines when the unit is switched on.

STEP 4 - PRESSING WITH STEAM
BEFORE PRESSING
*It will make pressing easier if there are few creases in the
laundry.
*To avoid excess creasing, shake each item out before placing
them in a drier or *hanging them out to dry in the open air.
*For towels, handkerchiefs and napkins, peg drape them over a
rod or steam press them *in place over towel racks.
PRESS
a. Grasp the control handle of the steamer hose once the steam is being
released.
b. Hold the control handle with the nozzle facing upward and begin at the
bottom of a garment allowing the escaping steam to rise inside and
outside removing the wrinkles as it rises.
c. After a few seconds, remove the nozzle from the garment. Smooth the
garment with your free hand and check to see if more steam is
necessary.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For heavier fabrics you may need to use repeated
applications. Avoid heating a single area with steam for a prolonged
period. Check the garment periodically to see that the process is
succeeding.
With practice you will gain speed and efficiency. You will also learn which
of your clothes require more steam pressing than others.

STEP 5 - CLEANING AND STORING THE UNIT
a. Turn the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position. The indicator light will go
out as the appliance cools down. Disconnect the plug from the outlet.
b. Wait for the Steamer to cool completely, for at least 30 minutes before
draining.
c. Drain the Water Bottle of the Steamer by removing it and emptying its
contents in a sink. Rinse the Water Bottle lightly, shake out excess
moisture and set it aside to dry.
d. Unplug the steamer hose from its position and set aside.
e. Lower the hanger rod from its extended position and disconnect the
rod entirely from the base.
f. Lift the base over a sink and empty the water remaining in the reservoir.
Wash the interior of the reservoir by flushing it with some fresh water.
This will dislodge any sediment that has accumulated. Drain this water
from the reservoir.
g. Reattach the steamer hose and the hanger rod or store separately.
h. Once the appliance has been drained and set aside to dry, you are
ready to store it.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR DAILY USE: If you wish to leave your steamer
ready for use on a daily basis, simply leave the water bottle filled and in place.
While you do not have to empty the water bottle each day, you should
periodically empty the old water out of the steamer and remove any
sediment that may have accumulated. Empty it once a month, depending on
use and water mineral content in your area.
6
OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES DURING OPERATION If the steamer hose gurgles during use
a. This is a normal result of condensation collecting inside the hose.
Simply lift the control handle upward until the hose is extended to its
full height.
b. The gurgling will disappear when the excess moisture inside the hose
has had a chance to drain back into the base.
If the steamer stops producing steam then starts again
a. You may wish to examine the inside of the reservoir. The most
common reason for this effect is the accumulation of sediment from
mineral laden water.
b. Clean the offending sediment from inside the unit, first following the
steps for cooling and cleaning the unit as presented on a previous
page.
If the steamer indicator ready light does not turn ON and the unit
does not produce steam
There may be an electrical problem with the appliance. Disconnect the
power supply immediately, cool and drain the unit as previously described.
DO NOT use the unit until it has been examined by an qualified repair
technician.
