SAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE
• Some parts of the iron have been slightly greased and
as result the iron may smoke slightly when switched
on for the first time. It will not happen again after a few
uses.
• Before using for the first time, remove any protective
films or stickers from the soleplate and the cabinet.
• Then clean the soleplate with the soft cloth. When
using the iron for first time, test it on an old piece of
fabric to ensure that the soleplate and water tank are
completely clean.

IRONING INSTRUCTIONS
CHOICE OF WATER
• This iron can be used with normal tap water.
• If the water in your area is particularly hard, it is
advisable to use distilled or de-mineralized water.
• Do not use chemically de-scaled water or any other
liquids for refilling.
HOW TO FILL IN WATER
• Unplug the iron from the wall outlet.
• Press the steam control button (6) down, so that the
steam won’t come out.
• Fill in the water through the inlet.
• Do not fill the water past the maximum level “MAX” of
the water tank. This may cause your iron to leak.
Important: Remove the water after use.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL SETTING
• Always check first to see whether a label with ironing
instructions is attached to the article to be ironed.
• Follow these instructions in all cases.
• First you should sort the laundry: Wool with wool,
Cotton with cotton etc. Start ironing the fabrics
requiring the lowest temperature and progress to
the higher ones because the iron heats up quicker
than it cools down. If the fabric consists of various
kinds of fibres (e.g. cotton with polyester) you must
always select the lowest ironing temperature for the
composition of those fibres.
SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
• Insert the plug into the wall socket and stand the iron
upright.
• Turn the temperature control knob (8) to the correct
temperature.
• The correct temperature will be reached when the
pilot light has turned off. The pilot light will be on
and off from time to time indicating that the selected
temperature is being maintained.
SPRAYING
This function can be used any time and it does not affect
the ironing temperature.
• Fill water into the iron as described above.
• Aim the nozzle to the garment.
• Press the spray button (5)
STEAM IRONING
This function can be used only at a higher ironing
temperature.
• 2 dots for moderate steam
• 3 dots or MAX for maximum steam

Fill water into the iron as described above.
Stand the iron upright.
Connect the iron to a suitable mains supply outlet.
Turn the temperature control (8) to the “2 dots”, “3
dots” or “MAX” setting.
• The pilot light turns off when the required temperature
is reached. The iron is ready for use.
• Turn the steam button (6) to the required position,
steam starts coming out from the holes in the
soleplate.
Note: With conventional steam ironing, water may leak
from the soleplate if a too low temperature has been
selected. If this happens, turn the temperature control
(8) to the advised position. Steam will recommence
as soon as the appropriate temperature has been
reached.
DRY IRONING
1. Connect the iron to a suitable mains supply outlet.
2. Ensure that the steam control knob (6) is in position
“O”.
3. Select the setting on the temperature control (8).
4. When the pilot light turns off, the required
temperature is reached. The iron is ready for use.
CARE AND CLEANING
1. Disconnect the iron from the wall outlet and let it cool
down completely.
2. Deposits and other residues on the soleplate can be
removed with a rough cloth soaked in a vinegar/water
solution.
3. The casting may be wiped with a damp cloth and
then polished with a dry one.
4. Never use any abrasives to clean the soleplate.
5. Keep the soleplate smooth: avoid hard contact with
metal objects.
STORAGE
• Turn the temperature control (8) to “MIN” and set the
steam control knob to position “O” (=no steam)
• Disconnect the iron from the wall outlet.
• Pour any remaining water out of the water tank.
• Stand the iron upright and let it cool down completely.
• The power cord can be wound around the iron.
• Always store the iron in an upright position.
SAFETY PROTECTIVE CUT – OUT
In the unlikely event of the thermostat failing, the
protection cut-out will operate to prevent the iron
overheating. Then the iron should be taken to the
nearest authorized service facility.
