book for future use.
At Kambrook, we believe that safe performance is the first priority in any
consumer product, so that you, our valued customer can confidently use
and trust our products. We ask that any electrical appliance that you use
be operated in a sensible fashion with due care and attention placed on
the following important operating instructions.
Important Safeguards For Your Kambrook
SpeedSteam Iron
• Carefully read all instructions before
operating the iron for the first time and
save for future reference.
• Remove and safely discard any
packaging material and promotional
labels before using the iron for the
first time
• To eliminate a choking hazard for
young children remove and safely
discard the protective cover fitted to
the power plug of this iron.
• When unpacking the iron, check to
see you have received all the items
listed in the parts list, before discarding
the packaging.
• Always ensure the iron is properly
assembled before use. Follow the
instructions provided in this book.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. High
temperatures are generated during
use, which could cause burns. Always
use the handle and warn others
(especially children) of the possible
dangers of burns from steam, hot
water or hot soleplate, especially
when ironing vertically.
4
• Do not use outdoors or in bathrooms.
• Always test the iron on a small,
discreet part of the fabric to be ironed
to ensure the temperature is not set
too high.
• Never use the vertical steam shot
while clothes are on the body or direct
the steam towards people.
• Do not place the iron near the edge
of a bench or table during operation.
Ensure that the surface is level,
clean and free of water and other
substances.
• Do not operate the iron on a sink drain
board.
• Only push and hold the self-clean
button when you want to activate the
self-cleaning function. Do not push

• Do not allow the cord to touch hot
surfaces.
• Do not leave the iron unattended
when in use.
• If the iron is not being used for an
extended period, disconnect the iron
from the power outlet.
• If the iron is set to a low temperature
on the temperature control (i.e.
synthetic or silk) and also on any of
the steam control settings, there may
be leakage from the soleplate. This is
due to the iron temperature not being
high enough to vaporize the water
and create steam. Therefore, ensure
that the steam control is always set
to correspond with the setting on the
temperature control as seen in Table
[insert table number] (see section
‘Setting the Temperature’.
• The iron must be used and rested on a

Using Your Kambrook Iron
Before First Use
Remove any promotional material or
packaging from the iron.
Remove any sticker or protective cover
from the soleplate. When operating the
iron for the first time, test on an old piece
of fabric to ensure that the soleplate and
water tank are completely clean.
When the iron is used for the first time,
some vapour may emit. After a short
while however, this will cease. The
vapour is due to the initial heating of
the materials used in the iron. It is safe
and will not harm the performance of
the iron.
Table A
NOTE:
Label Code
NOTE: As an important part of
our quality control process, your
iron has been individually tested.
As a result, you may notice a
small amount of condensation
or water droplets on the inside of
the water tank. There is no need
for concern.
Setting the Temperature
Before commencing ironing, first sort
the items to be ironed according to the
International Textile Care Labelling Code
or by the type of fabric. Iron fabrics that
require the lowest temperatures first.
Work through to the fabrics requiring
higher temperatures. The temperature
control dial and most items of laundry
have markings corresponding with this
code (see Table A).
on label means: “This article cannot be ironed”

Stand the iron on its heel and turn the
temperature control to MIN.
Plug the power cord into a 230V or 240V
power outlet and switch on.
Select the temperature setting required
by rotating the temperature control dial
so that the desired setting is aligned with
the temperature indicator.
The heating indicator light will illuminate
while the iron heats to the selected
temperature.
Once the light has switched off, the iron
has reached the set temperature and
is ready for use. The light will cycle on
and off during use as the iron maintains
the temperature selected on the
temperature control.
Caution: The iron
incorporates a thermal
safety fuse to protect the
iron from over-heating.
However the iron should
not be left unattended
while it is connected to
the power outlet. Special
care should always be
taken when there are
children in the home/
vicinity of the iron.
Steam Ironing
When filling the iron with water, ensure
that the iron is unplugged. Set the
steam control to the MIN position and
holding the iron at an angle use the
water cup supplied to fill the water tank.
Never exceed the maximum water level
as indicated (MAX) on the side of the
water tank.
Tap water can be used in your
SpeedSteam Iron unless it is particularly
hard, in which case it is recommended
that distilled or demineralised water
be used.
To Operate the
Steam Control
As per the indications on the
temperature control and in Table A (see
section ‘Setting the Temperature’) steam
ironing is only possible at higher ironing
temperatures, indicated with cotton /
linen on the temperature control.
Plug the power into a 230V or 240V
power outlet and switch the power on.
Set the temperature control to the
required position within the steam range
and wait until the heating.
Important: If the iron is
set to a low temperature
on the temperature
control (i.e. synthetic
or silk) and also on any
of the steam control
settings, there may
be leakage from the
soleplate. This is due to
the iron temperature not
being high enough to
vaporise the water and
create steam.
Therefore, ensure that
the steam control is
always set to correspond
with the setting on the
temperature control as
seen in Table A
(see section ‘Setting
the Temperature’).
Caution: Always test
the iron on a small
discreet part of the
fabric to be ironed to
ensure the temperature
is not set too high.

How To Use Shot Of Steam
Dry Ironing
The shot of steam provides an extra burst
of steam which is ideal for the removal
of stubborn creases and wrinkles during
STEAM or DRY ironing.
Turn the steam selector to the
MIN position.
Turn the temperature control to the
hottest setting and wait until the heating
indicator light goes out. Ensure the steam
control corresponds to the setting on the
temperature control.
Select the required setting on the
temperature control for the fabric being
ironed.
Lift the iron slightly above the surface of
the fabric, press the shot of steam button
down firmly and release it during ironing.
An intense burst of steam penetrates
deep into the fabric.
NOTE: For optimal steam quality,
wait an interval of at least 4
seconds between presses of the
shot of steam button.
Vertical Steam Shot
The vertical steam shot allows you to
use the iron for vertical applications. This
is especially useful for getting wrinkles
out of hanging garments, curtains, wall
hangings etc.
Hold the iron vertically, a slight distance
from the item to be steamed and press
the shot of steam button.
Caution: Never use
the vertical steam shot
while clothes are on the
body or direct the steam
towards people.
10
This shuts off the steam flow should there
be any water in the tank.
Once the temperature has been
reached, the heat indicator light will turn
off and the iron is ready for use.
Using the Fine Mist Spray
The fine mist spray can be used to
dampen difficult fabrics, dry areas,
woollen items and accidental creases.
Firmly press the spray button (located on
the handle of the iron) to produce a fine
spray of water ahead of the iron.
The spray can also be used with delicate
fabrics (synthetic) which are ironed at
low temperatures and therefore cannot
be steam ironed.
NOTE: If the spray function is
operated during dry ironing,
ensure that there is sufficient
water in the water tank. If dry
ironing for more than 20 minutes,
the water tank should be
emptied to prevent over heating
any water present.
Anti Drip System
The SpeedSteam Iron is equipped
with an anti-drip system. The iron will
automatically close the steam valve
when the soleplate temperature is
too low to produce steam. When this
happens you will hear a click sound. It is
safe and will not harm the performance
of the iron.
This is the reason the fine mist spray
should be used when ironing delicate
fabrics at low temperatures.
The steam valve will open once the
soleplate has reached the temperature
required to create steam.
After Each Use
Set the steam selector to the MIN position
and turn the temperature control to MIN.
Switch the power off at the power outlet
and disconnect the power cord from the
power outlet.
Open the water tank inlet and (over a
sink or bucket) invert the iron to empty
the remaining water from the tank.
Stand the iron in an upright position and
allow to cool.
11
Care, Cleaning and Storage
To ensure your iron maintains optimum
performance it is recommended that it
be cleaned using the self-clean function
to remove scale or impurities.
• Set the steam selector to the
MIN position.
• Fill the water tank up to the
maximum level (MAX) with the
water cup supplied.
• Set the temperature control to MAX
(linen) setting.
• Place the iron in the upright position,
insert the plug into the power outlet
and switch the iron on.
• Allow the iron to heat until the heating
indicator light turns off.
Caution: Only push and
hold the self-clean button
when you want to activate
the self cleaning function.
Do not push and hold
whilst ironing.
Boiling water and steam
will drip from the holes in
the soleplate during the
cleaning process. Due
caution and attention
should be exercised.
Cleaning the Soleplate
and Exterior
• Switch the iron off at the power outlet
and remove the plug.
Ensure that the iron is disconnected from
the power outlet.
• Hold the iron horizontally over the sink.
To remove residue which may have built
up from certain fabric finishes, clean the
soleplate with a rough cloth that has
been soaked in a vinegar and water
solution. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
• Press and hold the SELF CLEAN button.
• Water will drip through the holes in the
soleplate. Move iron until all water has
dripped out of the water tank.
NOTE: Once you have used the
self-clean function, it is normal
for some water to remain in the
water tank. This is due to the
anti-drip system preventing
the tank from being emptied
completely. This will not affect the
performance of the iron.
Repeat the self clean process if the iron
still contains a lot of impurities.
Caution: Do not store
the iron with water in the
water tank. Always empty
the tank after use. Ensure
the iron is cool before
storing or wrapping the
cord around the storage
heel facility.
12
To clean the steam holes, simply use a
damp cloth to wipe away build up of lint
or starch from inside the steam holes.
Wipe the outer housing with a soft, damp
clean cloth and polish with a dry cloth.
NOTE: Never use abrasives
or scouring pads to clean the
soleplate. Avoid hard contact
with metal objects. Do not
scratch or damage the surface
of the soleplate.
Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners
as they may damage the surface of the
iron. Never immerse the iron in water or
any other liquid.
NOTE: Always empty the water
tank after use. Ensure the iron is
cool before storing.
