Praktical Guidelines
Type of Water to be Used
This iron is designed for tap water. However, if
you have hard water we recommend to use a
mixture of 1/2 part tap water and 1/2 part distilled
water from drug stores or grocery stores.
Important: Never use distilled water (battery
water). Do not add any additives (e. g. starch) to
the water.
To fill iron
1. Pull the plug out of the wall outlet.
2. Put the steam regulator 4 in position «•»
(= steam off).
3. Open sliding shutter 2.
4. Place the iron in the upright position and fill
with water slowly through the tank opening 2
to the «max.» marking L (a), using the beaker
5. Close sliding shutter.
Selecting the temperature
Connect the iron to a safely located wall outlet
and select the ironing temperature with the
temperature selector 1 (b). As soon as the pilot
light 8 goes out, the iron has reached the
temperature selected. To avoid water dripping,
always rest the iron upright while heating it up
keep the steam regulator 4 in position «•»
(= steam off) (c).
You will usually find the following symbols in your

positions. Be careful not to touch sensitive
textiles with the hot sole plate.

in the sole plate):
When ironing within
the red area
the shot of
steam function can be
used. It gives an extra,
particularly powerful shot of steam penetrating
deep into the textiles in order to straighten
creases, collars and pleats. The function «shot

the respective function (f).
Turn the button from blue
(spray) to red (shot of

and from red to blue clockwise (f).
After ironing, always pull the plug out of the wall
outlet. Set the temperature selector 1 to «min.»
(b) and the steam regulator 4 to «•» (= steam
off) (c).

place and always standing on its heel rest j.
The sole plate may be damaged by remaining
water if it is stored horizontally. The warranty
does not cover faults or damage resulting from
improper storage of the iron.
Maintenance and Cleaning
All models have an aluminium sole plate. To
prevent damaging it, do not iron over buttons or
zippers, etc. Clean the sole plate regularly,
particularly if you use starch or other ironing
aids. To remove mineral/starch residues use a
vinegar and water mixture in the ratio of 1:2.
Never use abrasive scouring pads, powders or
The steam vents m and jet of steam outlets p
may be cleaned with a toothpick or cotton swabs
and vinegar solution, if necessary.
Decalcifying / Self-cleaning
Braun Combi-jet irons have a built-in system
(anti-calc. valve) to prevent calcification. It allows
you to clean residues from the steam chamber.
Do not use commercial decalcifiers; they may
damage the sole plate. We recommend to use
the self-cleaning function every 3 months.
1. Turn the steam regulator 4 to the position «•»
(= steam off).
2. Fill the water tank to the marking «max.» L
and turn the temperature selector 1 to the
●●● marking («self-cleaning» = SC) (A).
3. Plug the iron into the socket and wait till the
pilot light 8 goes off.

vents in the sole plate, while shaking the iron
slightly. (Caution: Hot water and steam come
out from the sole plate.)
9.Wait for the sole plate to cool down and then
clean it (see «Maintenance and Cleaning»).
10. Make sure that the sole plate is completely dry
before storing it.
Cleaning the anti-calc. valve on the steam
During the time the sole plate is cooling down we
recommend to decalcify the anti-calc. valve in
the following way:
1. Put a small quantity of white vinegar (not
vinegar essence) or lemon juice into a glass or
Ironing Guide
To begin ironing, it is best to start with fabrics
requiring a lower temperature (e. g. synthetics),
and continue with those requiring a higher
temperature (e. g. cotton, linen).
Silk and silk-like synthetics tend to waterspot,
therefore before using the water spray feature,
test it on an inconspicuous spot first.
