Filling with water
Fill the water reservoir before using the
steam function or the spray nozzle. Remove
the plug from the wall socket before filling
the reservoir.
∙ This steam iron is to a large extent
resistant to hard water (up to 15º dH).
Although normal tap water may be
used, it is advisable to use distilled,
demineralised or decalcified water.
Should you be unsure about the hardness
of the water in your area, please enquire
of the relevant local authority department.
∙ Turn the steam control button to its „0“
∙ Push the release button for the water
reservoir and remove it by pulling it out
from the front.
∙ Open the cover of the water fill hole.
∙ Fill the empty water reservoir using
the measuring cup provided. Fill to the
indicated “Max” level only.
∙ Close the water fill hole.
∙ Fit the water reservoir to the iron from the
front and make sure that it locks properly
into place.
General information about ironing
Always check first whether a label with
ironing instructions is attached to the article
to be ironed.
∙ The meaning of the ironing symbols is as
• synthetics
(low temperature)
•• silk and wool
(medium temperature)
••• cotton and linen
(high temperature)
∙ These markings can also be found on the
temperature control knob of the steam
iron in form of dot symbols.
∙ Laundry to be ironed should be
sorted according to the fabric ironing
temperature. Follow the ironing symbols
and start with the lowest temperature.
∙ When ironing highly sensitive fabrics, or
if you are not sure about the fabrics, you
may carefully test-iron at a non-visible
point, e.g. inside of seam. Start with the
lowest temperature.
∙ If the laundry is being dried in a dryer
before ironing, the temperature should be
adjusted to “iron dry”. Very dry fabrics are
difficult to iron.
Start up
Clean the steam iron before using for the
first time, according to the instructions given
in the paragraph General Care and Cleaning
- Self-cleaning system. This will result in the
removal of possible dust particles from the
soleplate and subsequently lessen the smell
typically encountered when first switching
Please ensure sufficient ventilation.
∙ Steam ironing requires high temperatures.
The temperature level for steam ironing
is indicated on the temperature control
∙ After filling the reservoir with water, place
the steam iron upright on its base stand
and insert the plug into the wall socket.
∙ Set the temperature control knob to the
required ironing temperature as indicated
by the ironing symbols.
∙ During the heating-up process the
indicator lamp will be on. The lamp will go
out once the required ironing temperature
is reached.
∙ Before ironing any fabrics, the soleplate
should be cleaned by passing it over an
old, clean cotton cloth, while using the
steam jet function; this helps to flush out
any dirt residues or lint particles trapped
inside the openings in the soleplate.
∙ The steam output can be continuously
adjusted with the steam control button or
completely switched off for dry ironing (0).
∙ For dry ironing, the water reservoir may
be empty. Should there be water left in
the reservoir, the steam jet function may
also be used when dry-ironing at higher
temperature settings.
∙ Place the steam iron upright on its base
stand after use and remove the plug from
the wall socket.
Steam Jet
When the steam jet button ( ) is
depressed, an additional hot steam jet is
emitted from the soleplate. This function
can be very useful when removing stubborn
The steam jet function may also be used
with the iron held vertically, to restore the
surface of fabrics.
For a sufficiently strong steam jet, the
reservoir must be at least a quarter full.
Spray nozzle
The laundry can be dampened by pressing
the spray button ( ). This will help to
smooth out difficult areas. The spray nozzle
may be used at any temperature level during
dry or steam ironing.
General Care and Cleaning
∙ Before cleaning the appliance, ensure it is
disconnected from the power supply and
has cooled down completely.
∙ To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not
clean the appliance with water and do not
immerse it in water.
∙ If necessary, the unit may be wiped with a
dry fuzz-free cloth.
∙ Starch, fat and other deposits on the
soleplate may be removed with a woollen
cloth soaked in a vinegar-water solution.
∙ Do not use abrasives or harsh cleaning
∙ Do not put vinegar or other descalers into
the water reservoir.
Self-cleaning system
The self-cleaning system flushes out loose
mineral deposits and keeps the appliance
free of lime and dust particles. Self-cleaning
should be performed if the iron has not
been used for an extended period of time,
or otherwise every 10-15 days. Proceed as
∙ Fill the water reservoir up to the maximum
level mark with water.
∙ Place the iron on its base stand and insert
the plug into the wall socket.
∙ Set the temperature control to its
∙ Wait until the indicator lamp goes out.
∙ Remove the plug from the wall socket.
∙ Hold the iron horizontally over a sink.
∙ With the self-cleaning button ( )
pressed, swing the iron lightly to and
fro until no more steam or hot water is
∙ Pour out any remaining water from the
∙ Allow the soleplate to cool down before
cleaning it with a damp, lint-free cloth.
∙ Turn off the steam iron, remove the plug
from the wall socket and let the unit cool
down completely.
∙ Pour any remaining water out of the
reservoir through the water fill hole.
∙ To avoid damage to the soleplate, store
the steam iron in upright position on its
