IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using your iron, basic safety
precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
1. Read all instructions carefully.
2. Use iron only for its intended use.
3. To protect against risk of electrical
shock, do not immerse the iron in
water or other liquids.
4. Never yank cord to disconnect from
outlet. Grasp plug and pull to
disconnect.
5. Do not allow cord to touch hot
surfaces. Let iron cool completely
before putting away.
6. Always disconnect iron from
electrical outlet when filling with
water, emptying, or when not in use.
7. Do not operate iron with a damaged
cord, or after the iron has been
dropped or damaged in any manner.
To avoid the risk of electric shock,
do not disassemble the iron. Return
the iron to EURO-PRO Operating
LLC for examination and repair.
Incorrect reassembly can cause the
risk of electric shock when the iron is
used.
8. Close supervision is necessary for
any appliance being used by or near
children. Do not leave iron
unattended while connected or on
an ironing board.
9. Burns can occur from touching hot
metal parts, hot water or steam. Use
caution when you turn a steam iron
upside down; there may be hot
water in the reservoir.
10. Never use or rest iron on an
unstable surface.
11. While the iron is hot, never set iron
on an unprotected surface - even if it
is on its heel rest.
12. CAUTION! TO PREVENT
ELECTRIC SHOCK OR OTHER
INJURY, before filling the iron
with water, make sure that the
plug is removed from the outlet.
13. WARNING: Never fill the iron
with fabric conditioner, starches
or any other solution, as these
will damage the steam
mechanism. Do not use
contaminated water.
14. CAUTION! TO AVOID FIRE, never
leave iron unattended while it is
plugged in.
15. CAUTION! TO PREVENT
ELECTRIC SHOCK, never use the
iron in a location where it can fall
or be pulled into water or another
liquid. If the iron falls into water
or other liquid, unplug it
immediately. DO NOT reach into
the water or liquid.
16. WARNING: Never use scouring
pads, abrasive or chemical
cleaners, or solvents to clean the
exterior or soleplate of your iron.
Doing so will scratch and/or
damage the surface.
17. CAUTION! DO NOT aim iron at
face, towards yourself, or anyone
else while using or adjusting
steam. Burns or serious injury
may occur.
18. Always store your iron standing
upright, not on the soleplate. If
stored face down, even the
smallest amount of moisture will
cause the soleplate to corrode and
stain.
19. This appliance is for household
use only.
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
Iron does not heat
POLARIZED PLUG: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1
Rev. 03/04
• Iron should be plugged into a 120V AC electrical
outlet only.
Make sure that the plug is securely in the socket.
• Temperature setting too low.
Turn to higher setting.
Thermostat ready light
goes On and Off
• This is normal.
The light goes On and Off as the thermostat is
switching the heating element On and Off to
maintain the selected temperature.
Some odor or small
particles come out of
steam vents of new
iron
• This is normal.
Follow instructions for first use and allow iron to steam
through 2-3 fillings & press the steam burst button
occasionally to eliminate small white particles.
Iron does not steam
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. To avoid a circuit overload, do not
operate another high-wattage
appliance on the same circuit.
2. If an extension cord is absolutely
necessary, use a 15-ampere cord.
Cords rated for less amperage may
overheat. Use care to arrange the
cord so that it cannot be pulled or
tripped over.
POSSIBLE REASONS & SOLUTIONS
Water droplets coming
from steam vents
• Water tank may be empty or water level is very low.
Add water.
• Make sure that the temperature control dial and
the variable steam control are correctly set. For
maximum steam, (setting "Max" on steam control),
temperature control dial should be set on "•••".
• Adjustable steam control is set on "0".
Always allow the iron to reach the selected
temperature with the adjustable steam control setting
at "0". Make sure the temperature control dial is set in
the correct steam area, e.g. "•", and the steam control
is not on "0". For more steam, turn temperature dial to
higher setting, e.g. "•••", and the steam control to
"Max".
• If temperature setting and steam control setting are
correct and there is no steam, gently tap the
soleplate on the ironing board a few times. Move
the variable steam control from "0" to "Max" a few
times.
• Iron may not be hot enough. Set thermostat to the
"Max" position. Always allow iron sufficient time to
heat up (thermostat light goes off) before activating
the variable steam control.
• Overuse of steam burst. Allow more time between
each burst.
• Iron may have been overfilled. Turn iron off,empty
water and follow instructions for filling.
• Steam performance may be low if iron requires
seasoning. To season, use regular tap water for 1or 2
tanks until steam performance improves.
