the iron rest plate and the sole-plate until they have cooled down
completely.
15. Never use the iron facing towards the people because the steam can cause
burns.
16. Never wind the supply hose during use.
17. To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance
on the same circuit
18. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 15-ampere cord should be
used. Cords rated for a lower amperage may overheat, care should be taken
to ensure that the cord cannot be accidentally pulled or tripped over.

Setting Guide
1. Follow up the ironing instructions on the garment label. If there is not any
instruction label, but you know what kind of the fabric is above, please refer
to the fabric setting chart described in this instruction manual.
2. The fabric setting chart is only valid for plain fabrics and not for materials to
which finishes, glosses etc, have been applied. Textile to which some kind
of finish has been applied (gloss, crinkle, relief etc.) is best ironed at lower
temperature.
3. First sort laundry according to ironing temperature setting guide: wool with
wool, cotton with cotton, etc.
4. The iron heats up more quickly than it cools down. Therefore, start ironing
articles that need to be ironed at the lowest temperature, such as those
made of synthetic fibres.
5. If the fabric consists of various kinds of fibres, always select the
temperature required by the most delicate fibres, i.e. the lowest
temperature. for example, an article consists of 60% polyester and 40%
cotton, according to the fabric setting chart it should be ironed for polyester
and without steam.
6. If you do not know what kind of fabric the article is made of, iron a piece of
the material which is not visible when you wear to find out the appropriate
temperature for your articles.
7. Pure woollen fabrics (100% wool) should be ironed with the iron setting to
steam ironing position. It is advisable to set the temperature control button
to “Max” position and use a dry pressing cloth.
8. When steam ironing woollen fabrics, shiny patches may occur. You may
prevent this by turning the article inside out and ironing the reverse side.
9. After ironing cotton fabrics, do not iron articles reguring lower temperature
(such as nylon etc.) Immediately. It is advisable to adjust the temperature
button to the lower setting, waiting for about 2-6 minutes till the power
indicator light turn on and then turn off, and then you can start ironing.
IMPORTANT HINTS
Do not fill water tank with vinegar, perfume, starch, chemically descaled water
or descaling agents, THIS WILL INVALIDATE THE WARRANTY.
Prepare the appliance for use
1. Check if the voltage indicated in the rating plate corresponding to the main
voltage in your home.
2. Fully unwind and straighten the power cord and the supply hose.
3. Place the appliance on a stable, level and horizontal surface such as ironing
board.
4. Iron should be well placed on iron rest,(shown as Fig.A) do not allow its
soleplate touch iron test. (shown as Fig.B)

Fill Water Tank
1. Press upwards the release button at the
water tank and slide the detachable water
tank outwards from the base. (See Fig.1)
2. Fill the water tank up to or below the

(See Fig.2)(You can take filter out of the
opening for filling water into water tank,
(See Fig.3) or fill water into water tank
directly with the filter existing in the
opening.When empty the water tank will
take 1 litre of water.
3. When empty the water tank will take one
litre of water replace the water tank into
the base unit again. It will be locked in
place with the base unit when a “click”
sound is heard. (See Fig.4)
4. Always pour out the remaining water
after use.(See Fig.5)
Note: When the water level reaches a low
level or empty, pump will provide sound
to indicate refilling. Stop using the
appliance immediately and refill water
tank using the methods mentioned
above.

Steam function setting
After power on, if steam is necessary, set temperature control dial to steam
ironing position according to fabric setting chart.When temperature control dial
is set at “
” or “Max” position. Steam adjustable knob should be set at
“MIN” ~ ”
” range. When temperature control dial is set at “
” , steam
adjustable knob should be set at “MIN” position. If water leakage happens
during use, set temperature control dial at higher temperature position or steam
adjustable knob to lower position. When temperature control dial set at “ ”, do
not use steam ironing, otherwise, water leakage will happen from soleplate.
Steam ironing cannot be activated until heating indicator light turns off.
Steam ironing
1. Fill the water tank with clean tap water refer to above filling instructions.
(Note: For every first use of the filter, please immerse it in water for better
performance)
2. An empty tank will accept one litre of water, connect the appliance into
suitable socket outlet. Press the power switch at base control panel until
power indicator light turns on to show the connection of the power supply.
3. Set temperature control dial at the steam ironing setting according to fabric
setting chart. The temperature indicator light comes ON to indicate the iron
being heated up(Refer to image), when temperature indicator light OFF ,the
required temperature has been reached, the unit is ready for use. During
use, it is normal that the temperature indicator light will cycle from ON to
OFF and then OFF to ON.This shows that steam chamber automatically
keeps temperature constant.
4. Before every first use, the iron should be cleaned using following
procedure: Select adjustable steam knob to Max steam setting, hold the
iron and press the steam switch underneath the handle for 20 seconds, and
then release for 30 seconds, do this for two cycles. When heating indicator
light OFF, it is ready for ironing. This process ensures optimal performance
of the iron throughout its life.
5. During steam ironing, adjust steam rate according to requirements based
on above steam function setting
6. After use, turn temperature control dial to “MIN” ,put iron back onto base
unit, Switch off the unit by pressing the power switch and then unplug the
appliance from the outlet.
7. Take water tank out of the base unit and pour out remaining water from
water tank.
NOTES:
a. For every first time use, it is normal that a slight vibration sound may be
heard from electrical pump inside the base unit for a few seconds when
steam ironing is started. It is because the water is being pumped into the
heating chamber. If this happens for more than 30 seconds, please check
whether water tank and filter assembled correctly or not.
b. Every first time use, please set adjustable steam knob to Max position to
allow steam escape quickly
Dry Ironing
1. Connect the appliance to a suitable socket outlet. Press the power switch at
base control panel until power indicator light turns ON to show the
connection of the power supply.
2. Turn steam control dial at the iron to desired position according to fabric
setting chart, The iron’s red light will go on to indicate the iron being heated
up. It will go off when the required temperature is reached. During the dry
ironing stage, the temperature indicator will cycle from ON to OFF and then
OFF to ON automatically because the iron is automatically maintaining sole
plate temperature.
3. After use, turn the temperature control dail to “MIN” position. Then, turn off
the power switch and unplug the appliance from the outlet.
Note:

Anti-Scale system
1. Filter is designed to reduce the build-up of limescale which occurs during
steam ironing, this will prolong the working life of your iron. However,
please note that the filter will not completely stop the natural process of
limescale build-up.
2. Filter should be replaced with a new one after about 2 months’ use.(base: 1.
0L / times x 2 times / week) Working life of filter depends on local water
you used. If working life exceed its Max limit, the appliance can be used
continuously, but limescale will be built up in steam chamber. So you
should replace the filter as soon as possible or mix your tap water with
distilled water at a proportion of 50%,if your local water is hard .
Emptying and storing
1. After use, slide out the water tank and pour out all the remaining water.
(See Fig.12)
2. Disconnect the appliance from the power supply and allow the appliance to
cool down for 60 minutes at least.
3. The iron should be placed on the iron rest plate of the power base and they
should be stored together.
Cleaning and Maintenance
1. Unplug the appliance from the main supply and let the iron cool down.
2. Clean the iron with a damp cloth. (See Fig.13)
3. Wipe off scale and any other deposits on the soleplate with a damp
cloth or non-brasive(liquid) cleaner.
4. Never clean the appliance under the tap.
5. Since steam vents are small,to prevent steam vents being blocked by
limescale, please clean steam vents with a 1.5mm steel pin after every 3-5
monthes’s use.(See Fig.14)
