plugged into the power outlet.
• Always unplug the iron from the power outlet
before filling or emptying the water tank.
• The iron must be used and rested on a flat,
stable surface.
• Always store your iron resting on its heel rest.
• When placing the iron on its heel, ensure that
the surface on which the stand is placed is
stable.
• The iron is not to be used if it has been
dropped, if there are any visible signs of
damage or if it is leaking.

Using your Sunbeam Iron
Before first use
Remove any adhesive stickers, covers or
cardboard sleeves from the soleplate.
Fill the water tank and empty the water.
This will rinse out any foreign
particles remaining in the water tank
from the manufacturing process.
NOTE: When turned on for the first time,
your new iron may give off vapours for
up to 10 minutes. This is due to the
initial heating of the materials used. It
is safe and not detrimental to the iron.
Filling the iron with water
Before filling the iron with water ensure
the power is turned off and the plug is
removed from the power outlet. The iron
can be filled with water while it is hot.
Slowly pour water into the water inlet
until the maximum water level is reached.
Do not exceed the maximum water level
indicator. Close the water inlet cover
NOTE: The soleplate design allows you to
use tap water without affecting the steam
performance. However in very hard water
areas, Sunbeam recommends the use of
distilled water, or water which has been
demineralised.
Do not fill the iron with fabric conditioner,
starches or any other solution as these will
damage the steam mechanism. Do not use
contaminated water.
Using your iron
1.Insert the plug into a 220-240 volt
power outlet and turn the power on.
2.Turn the temperature dial to the desired
setting by aligning the setting on the
dial with the temperature indicator.
The thermostat light on the SR6300
Sunbeam Sprint iron, will illuminate to
indicate that the iron is heating. When
the thermostat light goes out the iron has
reached the selected temperature and
is ready to iron.
8
NOTE: When the temperature dial is
changed from a high setting to a lower
temperature setting during ironing, the
thermostat light on the SR6300 Sunbeam
Sprint iron, will go out immediately to
indicate the iron is cooling. To ensure
that the iron has reached the selected
temperature and is not too hot, wait until
the thermostat light comes on again
and then goes out before ironing.
NOTE: When steam ironing, ensure that the
temperature dial is set to any temperature
within the steam band and that the tank is
at least ¼ full of water.
Using the shot of steam
The shot of steam can be used whether dry
or steam ironing when the temperature dial
is set to any temperature above the two dot
(••) setting.
1.Ensure the water tank is at least ¼
full.
2.Select the temperature and wait until
the thermostat light on the SR6300
Sunbeam Sprint iron goes out.
3.Press the shot of steam button several
times with the iron on the soleplate to
prime the pump.
NOTE: If the tank has run dry, it may be
necessary to re-prime the pump after filling
the iron with water.
Using the spray mist
The spray mist can be used whether dry
or steam ironing to pre-dampen hard to
iron fabrics.
1.Ensure water the tank is at least ¼
full.
2.Press the spray button during ironing
to release a fine mist from the nozzle.
The safety auto-off feature
The safety auto-off mechanism turns the
iron off if you forget.
The iron will automatically shut off if left
on the heel rest (vertical) for 15 minutes,
or in the ironing position (horizontal) for
30 seconds, without being moved.
Once the iron is moved the power will
reconnect. Allow the iron to heat until the
thermostat light goes out, and continue
ironing as normal.
The safety auto-off light on the handle will
flash and a warning beep you know that
you have left the iron unattended.
Power to the heating element is cut.

30 seconds
Care and Cleaning
After each use
1.Turn the power off and remove the
plug from the power outlet.
2.Allow the iron to cool before winding
the cord around the built-in cord wrap.
Storage and Safe-Store™
WARNING! Allow your iron to completely
cool before storing. Always store your iron
resting on its heel rest. Do not store your
iron resting on its soleplate.
The Safe-Store™ Heat indicator strip shows
you when the soleplate of your iron has
cooled sufficiently to be safe to store.
If the strip is red, your iron is too hot.
When the words SAFE-STORE appear on
the strip against a solid black background,
the soleplate is at a safe temperature for
storing.
DO NOT REMOVE OR MOVE THE SAFE-STORE
HEAT INDICATOR STRIP AS THIS WILL
INTERFERE WITH ITS CORRECT OPERATION.
NOTE: Do not store the iron with the
soleplate facing down, or in the carton.
Cleaning
To clean the exterior of your iron, wipe
over with a damp soft cloth and wipe dry.
Caution: Do not use harsh abrasives,
chemical cleaners or solvents to clean the
exterior of your iron as these will damage
the surface.
Self-Clean Button
Helps to flush out impurities to prevent
spotting on garments. Press the button to
flush water through the iron.
To clean the steam holes
To remove build up from steam holes use
a cotton wool tip moistened in methylated
spirits.
Cleaning the EasyGlide non-stick and
CeraFlow™ ceramic soleplates
These coatings reduce sticking of fabrics
and starches to the soleplate. Do not iron
over sharp objects such as buttons, studs
and zippers, as these may scratch the
surface.
Wipe the soleplate with a damp soft cloth
after each use. If polyester has burnt to
the soleplate, iron a damp cotton cloth
while hot.
Caution: Do not use scouring pads,
abrasives or harsh cleaners to clean your
soleplate, as these may scratch and
damage the surface.
