TROUBLESHOOTING
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
reassembly can cause the risk of
electric shock when the iron is
used.
When using your iron, basic safety
precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
9.
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.
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.
10. 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.
4. The iron thermostat should always
be turned to its lowest position
before plugging in or unplugging
from the electrical outlet.
5. Never yank cord to disconnect from
outlet. Grasp plug and pull to
disconnect.
11. Never direct steam at any person,
especially when using the iron in
the vertical position. The steam is
very hot and can cause burns.

surfaces. Let iron cool completely
before putting away.
12. This appliance is for household
use only.
7. Always disconnect iron from
electrical outlet when filling with
water, emptying, or when not in use.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
8. 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 the nearest service facility
for examination and repair. Incorrect
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.
PROBLEM
Iron does not heat
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
For Household Use Only
1
Rev. 11/04A
• 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

• 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
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 no attempt to defeat this safety
feature.
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.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR IRON
Before using your 1600 Watt
Professional Steam Iron, remove any
labels, stickers or tags that may be
attached to the body or soleplate of the
iron.
When turned on for the first time, your
new iron may emit an odor for up to 10
minutes. This is due to the initial
heating of the materials used in making
the iron.
USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
The odor is safe and should not reoccur
after initial heating.
Also, before ironing with steam for the
first time, allow iron to heat, hold in a
horizontal position and hit the burst of
steam button several times. The iron
may emit some small particles from the
steam holes. This is normal and will
clear after pressing the burst of steam
button several times.
EMPTYING THE IRON
ANTI-DRIP FEATURE
1. Always empty iron after each use.
2. When finished using the iron, turn
the variable steam control to“0” and
the temperature control dial to "MIN".
3. Unplug the iron from the electrical
outlet.
4. Set variable steam control to "MAX".
5. Turn the iron upside down over the
sink with the tip pointing downward
and allow the water to flow from the
opening.
6. Set variable steam control to "0".
7. Allow iron to cool in an upright
position before storing.
Built-in Anti-Drip feature helps reduce
water spots by cutting of water flow
when the iron temperature is too low to
build sufficient steam. The anti drip
function reduces water dripping and
water stains. It does not prevent water
dripping and water stains if you press
the steam burst button too often or if the
temperature is too low. The amount of
water droplets will eventually decrease
after the iron is used for 2 to 3 tankfuls
of steaming and ironing.
STORAGE
WARNING! Use caution when
emptying the iron. Burns may
occur from touching hot metal
surfaces, hot water or steam.
