IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using the appliance, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
• If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a cord with an ampere
rating equal to or greater than the maximum rating of the iron should
be used. A cord rated for less amperage can result in a RISK of fire or
electric shock due to overheating. CARE should be taken to arrange the
cord so that it cannot be pulled or tripped over.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
• CHECK THE VOLTAGE indicated on the appliance to make sure
it corresponds to your home voltage.
• Use iron/steamer combo ONLY for its intended use.
• The iron MUST NOT be left unattended while it is connected
to the supply mains.
• To avoid electric shock, DO NOT immerse the appliance in water
or other liquids.
• The iron MUST BE used and rested on a stable surface.
• NEVER yank cord to disconnect from outlet. Tug from the head at outlet
to disconnect from the wall.
• DO NOT allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let appliance cool completely
before storing. Loop cord loosely around appliance when storing.
• When placing the iron on its stand, ENSURE that the surface on which
the stand is placed is stable.
• The iron IS NOT TO BE USED if it has been dropped, if there are visible
signs of damage or if it is leaking.
• ALWAYS disconnect the appliance from electrical outlet when filling
or emptying water and when not in use.
• If the supply cord is DAMAGED, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, a service agent or similar qualified persons in order to
avoid a hazard.
• DO NOT operate the appliance with a damaged cord or if the appliance
has been dropped or damaged. To avoid risk of electric shock, do not
disassemble the Unit; take it to a qualified serviceman for examination
and repair. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when
appliance is used.
• The appliance is NOT INTENDED for use by children or other persons
without assistance or supervision if their physical, sensory or mental
capabilities prevent them from using it safely. Children should be
SUPERVISED to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
• CLOSE SUPERVISION is necessary for any appliance being used by or
near children. DO NOT leave the appliance unattended while the Unit is
connected or on an ironing board.
• DO NOT perform steam ironing on clothes while wearing. Steam is hot
and CAN BURN human skin. DO NOT use on pets.
• Burns can occur from touching hot surfaces, hot water or steam.
USE CAUTION when turning the appliance upside down. There may be
hot water in the water tank.
• CARE should be taken when using the appliance due to the emission
of steam.
• To avoid a circuit overload, DO NOT operate the iron on the same circuit
with another high wattage appliance.

Before cleaning, unplug the unit from power socket, and allow the appliance to
completely cool down. Then clean with a damp cloth. Do not immerse the unit into
water or any liquids. We do not recommend ironing clothes on a high temperature
