IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the iron.
2. Use iron only for its intended use.
3. To protect against a risk of electrical shock, do not immerse in water or
other liquids.
4. The iron should always be turned “OFF” before plugging or unplugging
from electrical outlet.
5. Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet, instead grasp plug and pull to
disconnect.
6. Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before
storing.
7. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.
8. Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling iron with water or
emptying and when not in use.
9. Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped
or damaged.
10. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, do not disassemble the iron. Return
appliance to EURO-PRO Operating LLC for examination, repair or
adjustment. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when
iron is used.
11. Close supervision is necessary for any appliance used by or near children.
Do not leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing board.
12. Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam. Use
caution when you turn a steam iron upside down as there may be hot
water in the reservoir.
13. Never direct steam at any person, especially when using the iron in a
vertical position. The steam is very hot and can cause burns.
14. Do not use iron outdoors.
15. This product is for household use only.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
1.To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance on
the same circuit.
2.If an extension is absolutely necessary, a 10-ampere rated cord with a
polarized plug should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat.
Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be pulled on or
tripped over.
IMPORTANT: 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 no attempt to defeat this
safety feature.

• 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
• Water tank may be empty or water level is very low.
Add water.
• Make sure that the temperature control dial and
the 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 steam control from ‘0’ to ‘Max’ a few times.
Water droplets coming
from steam vents
• Iron may not be hot enough. Set thermostat to the
‘Max’ position. Always allow iron sufficient time to
heat up (thermostat light goes off).
• 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.

IRONING CHART
NOTE: Before starting to iron delicate
fabrics, it is best to first test the
temperature of the iron on a hem or an
inside seam.
BEFORE FIRST USE
To select iron temperature, align
temperature selected on dial with
the indicator on the water tank.
IMPORTANT
The first time an iron is used, some odor and small white particles may come
out of the steam vents. This is perfectly normal and will cease to occur after the
iron has been in use for a short while.

Read all instructions for use carefully. Always follow the Important Safeguards.
Before you start using your iron, follow the instructions in the manual and do the
following in order to eliminate any odor and small white residue particles and to
ensure optimum steam performance.
• Fill the iron with regular tap water.
• Set the temperature control dial to its highest setting, the spray/burst of steam
button to the steam setting and the steam control knob to the lowest steam
setting.
• When the thermostat light goes off to indicate that the iron has reached the
selected temperature, set the steam control knob to the highest setting.
• Keep the iron in a horizontal position and allow it to steam until the water runs
out.
• Press the spray/burst of steam button to eliminate white residue particles.
• Repeat this procedure through 2 or 3 fillings.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Before using your iron, check the voltage and type of plug that is required for
your location. If necessary, readjust the dual voltage switch according to local
voltage: 110V - 120V or 220V - 240V. This is accomplished by sliding the dual
voltage control switch located in the rear of the iron to the corresponding
voltage setting.
Caution: Always disconnect the iron before adjusting the dual voltage
switch to the correct voltage setting.

Filling with Water
EMPTYING, CLEANING & STORING THE IRON
WARNING! Before filling the iron with water, be sure the iron is not
plugged into the electrical outlet. The iron may be filled with
water while it is hot.
TO PREVENT THE RISK OF BURNS, use caution when filling
iron with water. Burns can occur from touching hot metal
parts, hot water or steam.
Always empty and clean your iron after each use and before storing.
CAUTION:Never fill the iron with fabric conditioner, starches or any
other liquid, as these will damage the steam mechanism. Do
not use contaminated water.
NOTE: Because of the soleplate design, ordinary tap water may be used with
this iron. However, in very hard water areas, we recommend using
distilled or demineralized water.
