BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
•
•
Remove labels, stickers and packaging from the iron and soleplate.
Fill the water tank with clean water, and then empty the water to ensure the tank is clean of
any manufacturing residues. Refill the tank.
• The iron may give off an odour and small amount of vapour when switched on for the first
time. This is normal and will stop as the element cures.

SWITCHING ON
•
•
•
•
•
•
Turn the temperature control dial to 'min' and set the steam control to no steam.
Sit the iron on its heel.
Plug the power cord into the wall power outlet, and switch it on.
A red indicator light will illuminate.
Turn the temperature control dial to bring the desired setting on the dial next to the
mark on the tank.
When the iron reaches temperature, the power on/temperature ready indicator will turn off and
will then cycle ON and OFF as the thermostat operates to maintain temperature
AUTO SHUT-OFF
• If the iron is motionless, the element will switch off after 30 seconds if lying on its soleplate or on
its side and 8 minutes if it is sitting upright.
• The red light will blink continuously until you move the iron.
• To switch on again, lift up the iron, tilt it forward and then sit it upright.
• No settings are lost during auto shut-off
REDUCING TEMPERATURE
This can take time, as the iron has to lose the heat it has built up. It is best to organise your
ironing so that you do not need to reduce the temperature.
STEAM IRONING
When steam ironing, you must set the temperature control dial above the wool setting, to ensure
the iron is in the steam temperature range. Make sure the water tank is full.
•
•
Move the steam control to the setting you want and commence ironing.
The steam control is variable. Choose a position between the
no steam and high steam
that best suits your steam requirements.
NOTE: When steam ironing at the lower end of the steam temperature range, it is preferable to set the
steam control to a low steam setting, in order to reduce the incidence of water droplets.
COOL SPRAY MIST
NOTE: Water spotting affects some fabrics. Test this out on a hidden part of the fabric first. The cool spray
mist works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there is water in the tank.
•
•
•
•
Check that there is water in the tank.
Lift the iron off the fabric.
Aim the cool spray mist nozzle at the fabric.
Press the cool spray mist trigger – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water
through the system.
7
BURST OF STEAM
Burst of steam works with both dry and steam ironing, as long as there is water in the tank, and
the temperature control dial is set above the wool setting.
•
•
•
•
Check that there is water in the tank.
Check that the temperature control dial is at the wool setting or higher.
Press the
burst of steam button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water
through the system.
Leave 3 seconds between bursts, to allow the iron temperature to recover.
DRY IRONING
If you are going to be dry ironing only, there is no need to fill the water tank.
•
•
Move the steam control to no steam.
Set the temperature control dial to the desired setting then commence ironing.
VERTICAL STEAM
Vertical steaming removes wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing
fabrics.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check that there is water in the tank.
Turn the temperature control dial to ‘max’.
Check that there is nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam or heat.
Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
Hold the iron, with the soleplate vertical, close to (but not touching) the fabric.
Press the
burst of steam button. You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water
through the system.
Leave 3 seconds between bursts, to allow the temperature to recover.
AFTER USE
•
•
•
•
Turn the temperature control dial to 'min', move the steam control to no steam.
Unplug the iron.
Lift the top of the water inlet cover to open it.
Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain the water from the tank.
CAUTION: The water may be hot.
•
•
•
•
Sit the iron on its heel.
Leave it to cool down completely.
When it is cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet cover.
Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
8
SELF CLEAN
To prevent residues building up, use the
Self Clean button regularly, at least monthly in normal
water areas, more often in hard water areas. You will require a sink or a large bowl to catch the
water coming out of the soleplate.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Fill the tank to the ‘max’ level.
Sit the iron on its heel.
Plug the power cord into the wall power outlet, and switch it on.
Turn the temperature control dial to ‘max’.
Hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate facing down.
Turn the variable steam control dial to
Self Clean, whilst gently moving the iron to and from
over the sink or bowl.
CAUTION: Keep clear of the escaping water and steam.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Water and steam will wash any residues through the soleplate, and into the sink or bowl.
Turn the steam control dial to 'no steam' when done.
Empty the remaining water from the tank.
Unplug the iron, and sit the iron on its heel to cool.
When it is cold, wipe off any moisture.
Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
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 non-stick coating.
ANTI-SCALE
•
•
The anti-scale agent incorporated in the iron helps prevent the build-up of scale.
Do not use a descaling solution, or the anti-scale agent will be destroyed.
