Important safeguards
D After ironing
• Unplug the iron and press the steam on/off
button (3) so that it catches in its lower
position (steam off).
• To prolong the life of the iron, empty the
water tank.
• Store the cool iron in a dry place always
standing on its heel rest.
• Before using the iron, read the use instruc-
tions completely. Keep the use instructions
during the entire life of the iron.
• Make sure your voltage corresponds to the
voltage printed on the iron. Connect the
iron to alternating current only.
• Always unplug the iron before filling with
water and make sure the steam button is
in its lower position (steam off). Always pull
the plug, not the cord. The cord should
never come in contact with hot objects or
with the hot sole plate.
• Never immerse the iron in water or other
liquids.
• During ironing pauses, always place the
iron upright on its heel rest. Unplug it when
leaving the room, even if only for a short
time.
• Never pull out the steam button (3) during
ironing.
• Keep the iron away from children.
Electric irons combine high temperatures
and hot steam that could lead to burns.
• Check the cord regularly for possible
damage.
• If the appliance (including cord) shows any
defect, stop using it and take it to a Braun
Service Centre for repair.
• Faulty or unqualified repair work may
cause accidents or injury to the user.
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
To clean the sole plate, use steel wool.
Then wipe the sole plate clean with a cloth.
Never use a scouring pad, vinegar nor
other chemicals. To clean the soft material
of handle and power shot and spray
buttons, use soapy water.
F Cleaning the anticalc valve
The iron’s anticalc valve is located at the
lower end of the steam button (3). It has
to be decalcified regularly (e.g. when the
steam development is insufficient).
Proceed as follows:
1) Unplug the iron and empty the water tank.
2) Press the steam button so it is lifted.
3) Remove carefully (some water may now
leak from the sole plate).
4) Do not touch the anit-calc valve.
5) Immerse in vinegar (not vinegar essence)
or lemon juice until the lime becomes soft.
6) Use a non-metallic brush until all openings
are clean.

B Before starting off
• This iron is designed for tap water. If you
have extremely hard water, we recommend
to use a mixture of 50% tap water and
50% distilled water. Fill the water tank to
«max» marking. Never use distilled water
exclusively. Do not add any additives
(e.g. starch).
• Keep the iron in the upright position and
connect it to the mains. Select the temperature according to the ironing guide on
the heel rest of the iron or on the label in
your garments.
• The temperature pilot light (7) goes off,
when the desired temperature is reached
(after approx. 1 minute).
7) Rinse under running water.
8) Re-insert the steam button.
9) Press to check the steam on/off function.
Note: the iron must never be used without
the steam button.
G Decalcifying / anticalc system
When scale particles come out of the
steam vents or when the steam
development is insufficient even after
cleaning the anticalc valve, you should
clean the steam chamber as follows:
1) Make sure the steam button is in its lower
position.
2) – 3) Fill water into the tank, connect to the
mains and select the «•••» temperature
setting.
4) – 5) Wait until the pilot light turns off.
Unplug the iron.
6) – 7) Hold the iron over a sink, then press the
steam button so it is lifted, carefully pull it
up, turn it and rest it in this position.

1 Steam on/off
For steam ironing, the temperature selector
(6) must be set within the red range.
Press the steam button (3) to start the
steam mode.
steam on
steam off
With the steam button in its upper position,
turn the steam regulator (3a) to adjust the
steam quantity.
Preconditioning
(not with SI 6210 model)
Steam develops also horizontally at the
front area of the sole plate. This preconditions the textiles by «pre-steaming»,
thus making ironing easier.
Be careful – steam comes out laterally.
2 Power shot
Prior to use, press the power shot button
(5) 3 to 4 times to activate it. Press the
power shot button in intervals of at least
5 seconds.
Power shot can be activated when dry
ironing. However, the temperature selector
has to be set in the range between «•••»
and «max». The power shot function can
also be used in the vertical position for
steaming hanging clothes.
3 Spray function
Press the spray button (4).
4 Dry ironing
Turn the steam mode off by pressing the
steam button (3) so that it catches in the
lower position.
5 Automatic shut-off*
(*available on SI 6245 model only)
Important: the auto shut-off feature is
mercury-free. The auto shut-off mechanism
causes a slight rattling noise during ironing.
This is normal and in no case indicates a
fault of the iron. The «auto-off» pilot light (7)
will flash when the automatic shut-off is
activated. This happens when the iron has
rested:
– horizontally on the soleplate for about
30 seconds or
– vertically on the heel rest (8) for about
15 minutes or
– when the iron has been lying on its side
for about 30 seconds.
To turn on the iron again just move it.
When the «auto-off» pilot light (7) stops
flashing the electrical power is on again.
Caution: When the steam button is pulled
up, hot water and steam will come out from
the sole plate.
8) Push back the steam button until it catches
in the lower position.
9) – 10) Fill water into the tank, connect to the
mains and select the «•••» temperature
setting.
11) – 13) When the pilot light goes off, press
the power shot button 4 times to rinse the
iron. Disconnect the iron and wait for the
sole plate to cool off, then clean it as
described above in section E.
Note: the iron must never be used without
the steam button.
