English
Our products are engineered to meet the
highest standards of quality, functionality and
design. We hope you enjoy your new Braun
steam iron.
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Important Safeguards
• Before using the iron, read the use
instructions completely. Keep the use
instructions during the entire life of the
appliance.
• Make sure your voltage corresponds to
the voltage printed on the iron.
• Caution: Due to the high power of this
steam iron please make sure that your
mains supply is sufficient. Please contact
your local electric power company to
make sure that the so called mains
impedance is not higher than 0.31 Ohm.
• Always unplug the iron before filling with
water. Always pull the plug, not the cord.
• The cord should never come in contact
with hot objects or the sole plate.
• Never immerse the iron in water or other
liquids.
• The iron must be used and rested on a
stable surface.
• During ironing pauses, always place the
iron upright on its heel rest and ensure
that the heel rest is placed on a stable
surface.
• The iron must not be left unattended while
it is connected to the mains supply.
• This appliance is not intended for use by
children or persons with reduced physical
or mental capabilities, unless they are
given supervision by a person responsible
for their safety.
• Keep the iron away from children,
especially when using the precision shot
function. Electric irons combine high
temperatures and hot steam that could
lead to burns.
• Never iron or dampen clothes while
wearing them.
• The iron is not to be used if it has dropped,
if there are visible signs of damage or if it
is leaking. Regularly check the cord for
damage.
• If the appliance (including cord) shows
any defect, stop using it and take it to a
Braun Service Centre for repair. Faulty
or unqualified repair work may cause
accidents or injury to the user. Braun
electric appliances meet applicable safety
standards.

B Before starting off
This iron is designed for tap water. If you
have extremely hard water, we recommend that you use a mixture of 50 % tap
water and 50 % distilled water. Fill the
water tank to «max» marking. Never use
distilled water exclusively. Do not add any
additives (e.g. starch).
• Before filling with water, turn off the steam
regulator (6) («0» = steam off).
• Holding the iron slightly inclined (as shown
in B), fill the water tank up to the «max»
marking.
• Place the iron upright on its heel rest and
connect it to the mains.
Select the temperature according to the
ironing guide on the heel rest of the iron or
on the label in your garments.
The pilot light (8) goes off when the
desired temperature is reached (after
approx. 1 1/2 min.).
C Ironing
Vario steam
You can select the steam quantity by
turning the steam regulator (6) in a range
from «0» to «6».
The temperature selector (7) has to be set
within the red range.
We recommend a medium steam setting
for all normal ironing. Only when ironing
linen, thick cotton or similar fabrics we
recommend the maximum steam setting.
Notice: While ironing, do not turn the
steam regulator beyond setting «6».
Vario plus steam
For extra steam, press the steam regulator
(6) for max. 30 seconds.
The temperature selector (7) has to be set
within the solid red range.
Precision shot
Prior to use, press the precision shot
button (4) 3 to 4 times to activate it.
Press the precision shot button in intervals of at least 5 seconds for a powerful
steam shot with preconditioning steam.
Precision shot can be activated when
dry ironing. However, the temperature
selector has to be within the solid red
range.
The precision shot function can also be
used in the vertical position for steaming
hanging clothes.
98799847_SI18000_Korea Seite 9 Mittwoch, 1. Oktober 2008 1:36 13
Caution: Hot steam comes out from the
preconditioning nozzles.
Spray function
Press the spray button (5).
Dry ironing
Set the steam regulator (6) on position «0»
(= steam off).
D Automatic shut-off
(SI 18 895 and SI 18 896 models only)
The «auto-off» mechanism causes a slight
rattling noise during ironing. This is normal
and in no case indicates a fault of the iron.
The red «auto-off» light (9) will flash when
the automatic shut-off is activated.
This happens when the iron has rested
– horizontally on its sole plate for about
30 seconds or
– vertically on its heel rest for about
8 minutes.
To turn on the iron again, just move it.
When the «auto-off» pilot light stops
flashing, the electrical power is on again.
The automatic shut-off will be activated
approximately 2 minutes after the iron is
plugged into a socket.
E Textile Protectors
Textile Protector Plus (11) (only with
SI 18 896, SI 18 895 and SI 18 890
models)
The Textile Protector Plus protects
delicate fabrics from heat damage so that
you can iron most fabrics without an
intermediate cloth. A special coating
avoids shiny patches.
With the Textile Protector, you are able to
iron delicate fabrics with the temperature
setting within the solid red range so that
you can use all steam functions your iron
offers.
To check the reaction of your fabrics
before you start ironing, we recommend
that you iron a small section of material on
the reverse side. However, in order not to
damage the coating, avoid ironing over
e.g. zippers, metal buttons/rivets or strass
with the Textile Protector Plus attached.
After having attached the Textile
Protector, wait about 1 1/2 minutes before
you start ironing.
Soft Textile Protector (12) (only with
SI 18 896 model)
The Soft Textile Protector ensures an
increased heat protection and utmost
care for most delicate fabrics thanks to its
specially designed SoftTouch cushion.
Even most delicate, ironable* fabrics are
protected against heat damage and shiny
patches are avoided.
9
With the Soft Textile Protector attached,
you can iron all ironable fabrics without an
intermediate cloth. The Soft Textile
Protector is perfectly suited for touching
up e.g. creases of delicate business suits
without having to use an ironing cloth.
With the Soft Textile Protector, you are
able to iron delicate fabrics with the
temperature setting within the solid red
range so that you can use all steam
functions your iron offers.
However, in order not to damage the
SoftTouch cushion, avoid ironing over e.g.
zippers, metal buttons/rivets or strass
with the Soft Textile Protector attached.
(* in order to know whether a piece of
garment is ironable, please refer to its care
label.)
F After ironing
Unplug the iron and turn the steam
regulator to position «0». To prolong the
life of the iron, empty the water tank.
Store the cool iron in a dry place always
standing on its heel rest.
G Maintenance and cleaning
To clean the sole plate, use steel wool.
Never use a scouring pad, vinegar or other
chemicals. To clean the soft material on
the handle, use soapy water.
H Cleaning the anticalc valve
The anticalc valve located on the lower
end of the steam regulator has to be
decalcified regularly (e.g. whenever steam
development is insufficient). For this, the
water tank has to be empty.
Removing the steam regulator with the
anticalc valve
Turn the steam regulator clockwise
towards the steam setting «6». Keep
on turning firmly beyond the resistance
until the steam regulator is lifted. When
positioned at x, pull it out vertically.
Do not touch the anticalc valve at its lower
end. Immerse the anticalc valve in vinegar
(not vinegar essence) or lemon juice for
a minimum of 30 minutes. Brush off
remaining residues and rinse under
running water (fig. H, 1-7).
Re-inserting the steam regulator
When re-inserting the steam regulator,
make sure the steam regulator base still
points on setting x (fig. H, 8). Firmly push
down the steam regulator until it turns
back to setting «6» (fig. H) where it
catches.
Notice: The iron must never be used
without steam regulator.
98799847_SI18000_Korea Seite 10 Mittwoch, 1. Oktober 2008 1:36 13
I Decalcifying/anticalc system
In order to clean the steam chamber from
residues, decalcify it as shown in picture
section I, 1-8.
Caution: Hot water and steam will come
out from the sole plate when the steam
regulator is turned clockwise beyond
setting «6».
Wait for the sole plate to cool down, then
clean it as described above. Then refill the
tank with water, heat up the iron and press
the precision shot button 4 times to rinse
the iron before ironing (fig. I, 9-13).
Do not use commercial decalcifiers, they
may damage the iron.
