Oliso™ Steam Iron with Auto-Lift System™

Safer. Smarter. Simpler.
When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
Read all instructions before using this product.
1 ) Use iron only for its intended use.
2 ) To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in water or other liquids.
3 ) The iron should always be turned to “Off” before plugging or unplugging from the outlet. Never yank
cord to disconnect from the outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
4 ) Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting away. Loop cord
loosely around iron when storing.
5 ) Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water or emptying and when not in use.
6 ) Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid the
risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron. Take it to a qualified serviceman for examination and
repair. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used.
7 ) Do not allow children to use iron. Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used near
children. Do not leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing board.
8 ) 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.
9 ) If the LED flashes orange (not red or green), the iron is not operating normally. Disconnect from the
power supply and have the iron serviced by qualified service personnel.
1 ) This is a 1440 watt appliance. To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage
appliance on the same circuit.
2 ) If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 12 ampere cord should be used. Cords rated for
less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be pulled or
tripped over.

Auto-Lift System™
To operate, place the iron right side
up on a flat surface. Plug the iron into
an outlet and make sure the Auto-Lift
switch is in the on ( ) position.
Touch the iron handle and the iron will
sense your hand and lower. Let go and
the iron’s Lifters will automatically raise
the iron above fabric.
overriding the Auto-Lift system™
If you wish to turn off the Auto-Lift system, move the switch on the back of the
iron to the off ( ) position. Your iron will now operate like a standard iron. If the
iron is left in the horizontal position without being touched for more than 30
seconds, the Auto-Lift system will automatically raise the iron. This will prevent
the iron from scorching or burning. Touch the iron handle, and the iron will lower.
You can restore Auto-Lift by returning the switch to the on ( ) position.

Leave the iron in a

included fill cup. Two
fill cups equal the

of the water tank.
Alternatively, fill directly
from a faucet holding
the iron horizontally. Do
not fill the tank past the
MAX fill line on the
side of the iron. Close
the port when done.
If you need to add water during ironing, unplug
the iron and repeat the above steps. After filling,
make sure the iron is fully reheated before ironing.
water recommendations
This iron is designed to be used with regular tap
water. If your water is over 12 grams of hardness we
recommend using either inexpensive bottled spring
water or mixing half tap water with half distilled water.
Never use 100% distilled water as this can cause the
iron to spit and leak.

Steam Selector: Slide the steam selector to set the amount of constant steam. The iron
can only produce steam when the fabric selector knob is set to the wool ( •• ), cotton, or
linen range (•••). Allow the iron to heat up (steady green status light) before activating
the steam control. Steam will be produced as soon as the iron is lowered.
Dry Ironing: To turn off the steam, slide the steam selector off ( ).
Auto Anti-Drip: Your Oliso™ iron has an anti-drip feature which shuts off steam
production any time the iron’s Lifters are extended. This prevents unwanted
steam while the iron is standing. To prevent dripping entirely, keep the steam selector in
the off (
) position.

• the spray will help remove wrinkles
Burst of Steam
• firmly press the steam button for a strong burst of steam from the soleplate.
• the steam button can only be used when the iron is heated to the wool (••),
cotton, or linen range (•••).
• wait at least 3 seconds between each press of steam button.
Vertical Steam
• to steam vertically press the steam button while holding the iron upright.
• this is useful for getting creases and wrinkles out of hanging clothes or curtains.
• wait at least 3 seconds between each press of the steam button.
auto shut-off system
If the Oliso™ iron is not being used while it is plugged in, the status light will flash red and the iron will
turn itself off. The auto shut-off timing depends on whether the Auto-Lift System™ is turned on or off.
Touch the handle of the iron to restart it.

after ironing
a. Turn the fabric selector to off. Slide the steam selector to off (
b. Unplug the appliance (Do not hold iron while unplugging or the
Lifters will not stay extended. Iron should always be stored with Lifters
extended to prevent leaking).
c. Place iron on the Lifters and allow to cool.
d. Important: Empty water from the water tank after use. Tilt the iron
forward to drain from the spout at the front of the iron. To drain faster,
open the Flip Funnel™ .
e. For easy storage, the power cord can be wound loosely around the
iron once it has cooled.
The soleplate should be cleaned if starch or other residue build up. When the iron is cool, wipe the
soleplate with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads as this will damage
the iron’s soleplate.
Mineral deposits from tap water can occur in the soleplate vents. To clean, fill the water tank and heat
the iron to the linen fabric setting. Once the iron is fully heated, unplug the iron and hold over a sink.
Press the steam button repeatedly until water begins to drip out of the soleplate. Be careful, as this
creates large amounts of steam.
To ensure optimal steam production, the steam valve should be regularly cleared of accumulated
debris and minerals. This is done by moving the steam selector back and forth from the off (
to the max (
) steam settings several times.
