Notice: Remove the sole plate label, if any, before first use. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 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.

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. C Ironing pre ss pr es s 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.
