INTRODUCTION
Welcome to Hotpoint's Garment Care. Thank
you for purchasing our new steam generator.
We recommend registering this product on
www.hotpoint.co.uk to make sure you are
entitled to all the benefits made available by
Hotpoint's Customer Service.
This appliance was developed for household use only
and is not intended for industrial use.
Before you begin using the appliance, it is
important that you thoroughly read these
instructions and carefully keep them for further
reference.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
The safety features of your steam generator comply
with the technical specifications and regulations in
force.
The voltage of your system must match the
voltage of the steam generator (220-240 V).
Any connection error could cause irreversible
damage to the steam generator and void its
warranty.
•
This product is intended only for ironing of
clothing and household laundry.
Only connect the appliance to a grounded
socket. When using an extension cord, make
sure that a grounded socket is available.
Regularly check the condition of the power cord.
When cleaning the appliance, make sure it has
been unplugged from the socket.
Disconnect the plug from the socket by holding
the plug and not by pulling the cable.
Prevent the power cord and steam cable from
touching the hot soleplate. Use the special cordrewinding clip.
•
•
•
Before storing the steam generator, wait until it
has completely cooled down - it will take about
three hours.
Do not direct steam towards people or animals
and do not iron garments while worn.
Never add any perfume, vinegar, starch,
scale-removing agents, ironing products
or other chemicals in the water reservoir unless recommended by Hotpoint. Never use
contaminated water.
Never immerse the appliance in water or any
other liquid.
Do not leave the appliance in the open air and
exposed to inclement weather conditions.
Never leave or use the appliance over or close
to flames, ovens, flammable materials or other
sources of heat.
When being used, the boiler can get very
hot. Wait until the steam generator has
completely cooled down before putting it away.
•
•
Should you suspect a failure, immediately unplug
it from the electrical socket.
The manufacturer shall assume no responsibility
in case of damage resulting from any improper
use of the appliance.
Replacing the fuse
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be used, and the
fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug
must not be used until a replacement is obtained.
Use the appliance only for its intended use as
described in this manual.

Replacement fuse covers
How to connect an alternative plug
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of the
correct colour as indicated by the coloured marking or
the colour that is embossed in words on the base of
the plug. Replacements can be obtained directly from
your nearest Service Depot.
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE
BROWN GREEN & YELLOW NEUTRAL (N)
LIVE (L)
EARTH (E)
Removing the plug
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug
and you should wish to re-route the mains cable through partitions, units etc., please ensure that either:
Brown
•
Cord
or:
•
the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewireable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval.
the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp
cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in compliance with BS 5733) which is accessible without
moving the appliance.
Disposing of the plug
Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself, you
make the pins unusable so that it cannot be accidentally inserted into a socket.
Instructions for connecting cable to an
alternative plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
GREEN & YELLOW
BLUE BROWN EARTH
NEUTRAL
LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the lead may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
•
•
•
Connect Green & Yellow wire to terminal marked
E or
or coloured Green or Green & Yellow.
Connect Brown wire to terminal marked L or coloured Red.
Connect Blue wire to terminal marked N or coloured Black.
If a 13 amp plug (BS 1363) is used it must be fitted
with a 13 amp fuse, either in the plug or adaptor or at
the distribution board.
If you are in any doubt regarding the electrical supply
to your machine, consult a qualified electrician before
use.

The power supply cable must never be bent
or dangerously compressed.
The power supply cable must only be replaced by an authorised serviceman.
BEFORE USE
Before using the iron for the first time, remove all
stickers, protective plastic or cardboard packaging
from the soleplate of the iron.
Make sure that all adhesive parts have been removed
from the soleplate using a damp soft cloth and remove
any residues or particles from the manufacturing
process by repeatedly filling and emptying the water
reservoir.
When you switch on the iron for the first
time, you may notice an unpleasant smell, a
little smoke and some impurities. They will
disappear in a few minutes. When using the steam
function for the first time, do not direct the steam
jet on the garments because manufacturing
residues may be present in the steam dispenser.
Never add any perfume, vinegar, starch,
scale-removing agents, ironing products or
other chemicals in the water reservoir - unless
recommended
by
Hotpoint.
Never
use
contaminated water or coming from driers,
accumulators or air conditioners.
FILLING THE WATER
RESERVOIR
Water plays an essential role both in the ironing
process and in the good operation of the appliance
over a long lifespan. In particular, a high concentration
en
of limescale may damage some parts of the iron and
cause its early deterioration.
The iron water tank has a capacity of 1200ml with
extra 200ml boiler.

the types of fabrics that can be ironed in any order.
Regularly rinse the water reservoir (8) under
clean water. After cleaning, always empty the
water reservoir.
Scale removal (K)
Your steam generator is equipped with the descaling
system (18). Il the anti-scale cartridge is not in
position the device will not produce steam. Please
replace the anti-scale cartridge every three months of
use (average use = 2,5 hours / week).
To replace the cartridge please extract it from its slot
inside the warer tank and replace it with a new one.
The descaling filter does not purify water
from impurities other than limescale. We
recommend to check that mains water is not
contaminated by these impurities that could
affect the performance your steam generator.
If you wish to clean it the boiler of your
steam generator, please wait at least 3
hours until the steam generator has completely
cooled down.

Sort the garments out according to the fabric
types. This will reduce the need to adjust the
temperature according to the different fabrics.
Start with the garments that require a low ironing
temperature and continue with the garments
requiring higher ironing temperatures.
If you are not sure about the composition of
the fabric, try ironing a hidden part such as a
seam, hem or internal section. Start with low
temperature and gradually increase it until you
find the ideal ironing setting.
When you reduce the steam generator’s
temperature to iron delicate garments, wait
approximately 2 minutes to let the steam
generator reach the new settings.
Pure wool (100% wool) garments can be steamironed as long as the temperature is set to wool.
We recommend using a cotton cloth to prevent
any shiny marks on the garment.
Never iron areas with obvious perspiration
marks because the heat will make the stains fast
and permanent.
