This appliance reaches high temperatures and produces steam
during use, this could cause scalds or burns in case of improper use.
- Do not touch the soleplate! Hold the iron by its handle.
- Do not leave the power cable hanging over the table or ironing
board, to prevent the appliance from falling.
- Do not iron clothing while it is being worn!
- Never spray or aim the steam at persons or animals!
• Do not allow the power cable to come into contact with sharp
edges or with the soleplate when it is hot.
• Never rest the iron in a horizontal position when the soleplate
is hot. Rest it on its heel.
• Do not touch the appliance with wet hands when in operation.
• This appliance is to be connected and used in accordance with
the information stated on its characteristics plate.
• This appliance must be connected to an earthed socket. If it is
absolutely necessary to use an extension cable, make sure that
it is suitable for 16A and has a socket with an earth connection.
• If the safety fuse fitted in the appliance blows, the appliance
will be rendered inoperative. To restore normal operation the
appliance will have to be taken to an authorised Technical
Service Centre.
• In order to avoid that, under unfavourable mains conditions,
phenomena like transient voltage drops or lighting fluctuations

• Never immerse the iron in water or any other fluid.
• Do not leave the appliance exposed to weather conditions (rain,
sun, frost, etc.)
Tips to help you save energy
Steam production consumes the most energy. To help minimise
the energy used, follow the advice below:
• Start by ironing the fabrics that require the lowest ironing
Check the recommended ironing temperature in the label on
the garment.
• Regulate the steam according to the selected ironing
temperature, following the instructions in this manual.
• Try to iron the fabrics while they are still damp and reduce the
steam setting. Steam will be generated from the fabrics rather
than the iron. If you tumble dry your fabrics before ironing them,
set the tumble drier on the ‘iron dry’ programme.
• If the fabrics are damp enough, turn off the steam regulator
• Stand the iron upright during pauses. Resting it horizontally with
the steam regulator on generates wasted steam.

Temperature Setting
Silk - Wool
6 Extra steam
The pilot light (11) switches on while the appliance is heating up
and switches off as soon as the set temperature is reached. lf the
temperature of the hot iron drops, you can continue ironing while
the iron heats up again to the set temperature.
• Sort your garments according to their care labels, always
starting with clothes that have to be ironed at the lowest
• If you are unsure what type of material the garment is made from,
start ironing on the lowest temperature setting and increase
accordingly. If the garment is made from mixed fabrics, set the
temperature for the most delicate material.
• For silk, woollen or synthetic materials iron the reverse side
of the fabric to prevent shiny patches. Avoid using the spray
function to prevent stains.
To facilitate the ironing of very creased laundry or thick materials,
the volume of steam can be increased briefly. To do this, set the
temperature control (10) to “max”. Get extra steam by pressing
the steam regulator (3) for maximum 2 seconds.
7 Spray
This can be used to remove stubborn wrinkles.
Do not use the spray function with silk as staining may occur.
1.Select an appropriate temperature for the type of material being
ironed (see “Setting the temperature” section).
2.When ironing, press the spray button (1) and water will spray
out of the spray nozzle (5) onto the garment.

Depending on the model, this range is equipped with the following
anti-calc systems “3AntiCalc” (components 1+2+3).
A. self-clean
Each time you press the steam regulator (3), the “self-clean”
system cleans the mechanism of scale deposits.
B. Calc’nClean
The “Calc’nClean” function helps to remove scale particles out
of the steam chamber.
Use this function approximately every 2 weeks if the water in your
area is very hard.
1.Unplug the iron from the mains socket, and fill the water tank
(7) with water.
2.Set the temperature control (10) to the “max” position and plug
in the iron.
3.After the necessary warm-up period, unplug the iron.
4.Hold the iron over a sink and remove the steam regulator (3)
by turning it to the “calc” position then carefully taking out the
spring wrapped around the needle.
5.Slowly pour water (approximately 150 ml) into the steam
regulator hole.
6.Gently shake the iron. Boiling water and steam will come out
of the soleplate carrying scale or deposits that might be there.
When the iron stops dripping, reassemble the steam regulator
by reinserting it, lining up the “calc” position with the pointer
(9), pressing it in and turning it to the “0” position.
7.Heat up the iron again until the remaining water has evaporated.
8.If the steam regulator needle is soiled, remove any deposits
from the tip with vinegar and rinse it off with clean water.
(Model dependent)
The “Secure” auto shut-off function switches off the iron when
it is left unattended, thus increasing security and saving energy.
After plugging in the appliance, this function will be inactive for
the first two minutes in order to give the appliance time to reach
the set temperature.
Alter such time, if the iron is not moved for 8 minutes while in
the upright position or 30 seconds while resting on its soleplate
or on its side, then the safety circuit will switch the appliance off
automatically and the indicator lamp (13) will start flashing.
To reconnect the iron, just move it about gently.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Attention ! Risk of burns !
For general cleaning, follow the information below:
