BUILT-IN aNTI-SCaLE SYSTEM

The built-in anti-scale cartridge is designed to reduce the build-up of lime scale which occurs during steam ironing. This will prolong the working life of your iron. However, please note that the anti-scale cartridge will not completely stop the natural process of lime scale build up.

SELF CLEaNING

This function removes the scales and minerals built up in the Steam Chamber.

After the steaming function has been used for over 5 hours, the soleplate needs to self-clean and the self-clean indicator will flash on the LCD.

• Wipe the soleplate with a cold, damp cloth.

• When the iron gets cool completely, store it vertically in a safe place.

aNTI-DRIp

The anti-drip system is designed to prevent water escaping from the soleplate when the iron is too cold.

During use, the anti-drip system may emit a loud clicking sound, particularly during heat-up or whilst cooling down.

This is perfectly normal and indicates that the system is functioning correctly.

EMpTYING aND STORING

• Hold the iron upside down and gently shake it to remove the remaining water.

• When the iron completely cools down, store it vertically in a safe place.

CLEaNING

• Unplug the iron when not in use, and before cleaning.

• Allow the iron to cool down completely before cleaning and storing away.

• Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little dishwashing liquid.

• Remove spots, or burnt on fabrics, by ironing a damp cotton or linen cloth with the iron hot. Take care not to scratch the soleplate.

• Do not immerse the iron in water or any other liquid.

• Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents, solvents or scourers on the soleplate as these will damage the surface coating.
