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. • 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. • Keep the iron away from children, especially when using the Power 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. Notice: The iron must never be used without steam regulator. G Decalcifying / anticalc system In order to clean the steam chamber from residues, decalcify it as shown in picture section G 1–11. Caution: Hot water and steam will come out from the sole plate when the steam regulator is turned clockwise beyond . 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 Power shot button four times to rinse the iron before ironing (fig. G 12–14). Do not use commercial decalcifiers, they may damage the iron. Trouble-shooting guide Problem Remedy Drops coming out of the steam vents Turn the steam regulator anti-clockwise to reduce the steam or turn it off. Take longer intervals when pressing the Power shot button. Select a higher temperature setting. Less steam develops or no steam at all Check water level. Clean the anticalc valve. Calcium particles coming through the steam vents Decalcify the steam chamber. A Description 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Spray nozzle Water tank opening Steam regulator Spray button Power shot button Temperature selector Pilot light Heel rest 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 («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 (7) goes off when the desired temperature is reached (after approx. 1 1/2 min.). C Ironing 1 Vario steam You can select the steam quantity using the steam regulator (3). (0= no steam, = maximum steam). Notice: While ironing, do not turn the steam regulator beyond . The temperature selector (6) has to be set within the red range (between «••» and «max»). Preconditioning (only with model SI 2040) Steam also develops horizontally at the front area of the sole plate. This preconditions the textiles by «pre-steaming», thus making ironing easier. Be careful – steam comes out laterally. 2 Power shot Prior to use, press the Power shot button (5) 3 to 4 times to activate it. Press the Power shot button in intervals of at least 5 seconds. Power shot can be activated when dry ironing. The temperature selector has to be within the solid red range (between «•••» and «max»). Models SI 2030 and SI 2040 only: The Power shot function can also be used in the vertical position for steaming hanging clothes. 3 Spray function Press the spray button (4). 4 Dry ironing Set the steam regulator (3) on position «0» (= steam off). D 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. E Maintenance and cleaning To prevent damaging the sole plate, do not iron over metal buttons or zippers. Clean the sole plate regularly with a damp cloth. To remove mineral/starch residues, use a vinegar/water mixture in the ratio of 1 : 2. Never use steel wool, abrasive scouring pads, powders or other chemicals to clean the sole plate. F Cleaning the anticalc valve The anticalc valve located on the lower end of the steam regulator (3) 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 . Keep on turning firmly beyond the resistance until the steam regulator is lifted. When positioned at «•» (anticalc system), 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. F 1–5). Re-inserting the steam regulator: When re-inserting the steam regulator, make sure the steam regulator base still points on setting «•» (anticalc system) (fig. F 6). When firmly pushing down the steam regulator, it turns back to (fig. F 7) where it catches. Subject to change without notice.
