IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
When using your flatiron, basic safety precautions should
always be followed including the following:
Read all instructions carefully before using this product.
1Use this iron only for its intended use.
2To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not immerse the iron
in water or other liquids.
3The iron should always be turned off before plugging or unplugging
from outlet. Never yank the cord to disconnect from outlet.
Instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
4Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely
before putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.
5Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet before filling with
water, emptying, or when not in use.
6Do not operate iron with a damaged cord, or if the iron has been
dropped or damaged in any manner. To avoid the risk of electric
shock, do not disassemble the iron. Take the iron to an authorized
service center for examination and repair. Incorrect reassembly
can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used after
reassembly.
7Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or
near children. Do not leave iron unattended while connected, on an
ironing board, or while it is still hot.
8Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam.
Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down; there may be
hot water in the reservoir.
9Never use or rest iron on an unstable surface.
10 When placing the iron on its stand, ensure that the surface on
which the stand is placed is stable.
11To prevent electric shock or other injury, before filling the iron with
water, make sure that the plug is removed from the outlet.
12The use of accessory attachments is not recommended and may
result in fire, electric shock, or personal injury.
13To avoid fire, never leave iron unattended while it is plugged in.
14To prevent electric shock, never use the iron in a location where it
can fall or be pulled into water or another liquid. If the iron falls into
water or other liquid, unplug it immediately. Do NOT reach into the
water or liquid.
15Never use scouring pads, abrasive or chemical cleaners, or solvents

IRON SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
to clean the exterior or soleplate of your iron. Doing so will scratch
and/or damage the surface.

iron or adjusting steam. Burns or serious injury may occur. Do not iron
clothes while they are being worn.
17The iron is not to be used if it has been dropped, if there are visible
signs of damage or if it is leaking. If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agency or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
1This is a 1400 watt appliance. To avoid a circuit overload, do not
operate another high-wattage appliance on the same circuit.
2If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, use an 15-ampere cord.
Cords rated for less amperage can result in a risk of fire or electric
shock due to overheating. Use care to arrange the cord so that it
cannot be pulled or tripped over.

Auto-Off
As a safety feature, the auto-off function will turn off the heat to
the soleplate if the iron is not moved within a certain amount of
time. If the iron is placed on the soleplate or either side without
movement, then the heat will turn off after 30 seconds. If the
iron is placed on the heel rest without movement, then the heat
will turn off after 15 minutes. The Power Indicator will flash to
indicate that the iron has entered into the Auto-Off mode and that
no heat is being supplied to the soleplate. To resume use of the
iron after it has entered into the Auto-Off mode, initiate movement
of the iron. Depending on how long the iron has been in the AutoOff mode, you may need to allow it to heat back up. The Ready
Indicator will illuminate when the iron has heated back up to the
previously set fabric selection. If the iron is left in the Auto-Off
mode, it will shut off completely after 5 minutes of entering the
Auto-Off mode.
WARNING
The Auto-Off function is designed as a safety feature
and should not be used as the primary method of
turning off the iron. The “Using Your Iron” section
contains information on properly turning off the iron.
Non-Drip System
The iron is capable of generating steam, even at reduced
temperatures, without water drips, sputters, or leaks coming
through the soleplate steam holes.
Vertical Steam
The iron is capable of being used as a garment steamer using the
Steam Burst/Vertical Steam Button.
Anti-Calcium System
The iron contains an anti-calcium system that reduces calcium
accumulation on the soleplate by removing calcium from the water
inside the reservoir.
