CAUTION: Be sure to examine garment label before selecting a fabric setting.
If you cannot determine a fabric type, select lowest setting and increase as
needed. It is best to start with the most delicate fabrics first to avoid damage
to your fabric.
6) A Ready Light (Green) will appear once press has reached desired temperature
allowing you to start pressing. Be sure to use provided Pressing Cushion to flatten
out gathered areas such as sleeves, darts and yokes. If needed, use Spray Bottle for
dampening fabric before pressing.
7) Pull down Pressing Handle and press the Pressing Plate and the Ironing Board
together. Hold for a few seconds, then lift to separate the Pressing Plate and Ironing
Board.
IMPORTANT: Press On/Off Button to cancel your selected pressing cycle.
8) To use steam, adjust the Fabric Temperature Selection to the Wool, Cotton or Linen
settings. The Steam Ready Light (yellow) will appear and you will be able to press
the Steam Burst Button for steaming your garments.
9) Pull down Pressing Handle directly above garments about 1 to 2 inches above fabric
and press Steam Burst Button. Press garment. DO NOT activate Steam Burst Button
with unit completely closed; you may damage your press.
CAUTION: Do not hold down press for longer than 5 seconds. If using Steam
Burst Button, do not fully close press down onto fabric. If you hold down the
press for too long, you may cause your garments to wrinkle because they have
gotten too hot. If this should happen, spray down garment with water and
start over.
CAUTION: When using steam, do not hold Steam Button for longer than
3 seconds. If steam is used for too long, you will cause the press to drop
dramatically in temperature and will have to wait for it to reach the initial
desired setting. The drop in temperature cannot be avoided as the burst
of steam cools down the Pressing Plate instantly. By using steam in short
bursts, you will help to eliminate the dramatic temperature drop and thus be
able to press quicker and more efficiently.

Auto Shut-off and Auto Wake-Up:
E1: A warning beep (and E1 warning will appear on the digital display for Empressa
model only) will signal if the Pressing Plate is left in a closed position against the
Ironing Board for more than 10 seconds. The press will stop heating and the Auto
Shut-off feature will initiate unless the Pressing Plate is restored to the lifted position.
The Auto Wake-Up feature will then kick in. In some cases, you will need to either turn
press off and then on again or unplug then re-plug the unit in to reset function.
CAUTION: Do not lock Pressing Plate and Ironing Board together as a beep
and/or an E1 warning will appear and press will begin to beep. Only lock when
storing.
E2: A warning beep (and E2 warning will appear on the digital display for Empressa
model only) will signal if the pressing plate is left in lifted position without use for
approximately 10 minutes. The press will stop heating and Auto Shut-off feature will
engage. In order to restore use, simply press On/Off Switch or press Temperature
Control buttons to reset press.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you forget to raise the Pressing Plate or become
distracted, the machine will give a warning beep then automatic shut-off
feature will initiate and/or an E2 warning will appear. The steam press will be
completely shut-off after about 10 minutes of no activity with the press in the
open position.
Warning: During initial use or after a long period of time without use, press
the Steam Burst Button continuously for several seconds to clear Pressing
Plate of residual water or calcium buildup in system before use.
NOTE: Some garments have details such as darts, curved seams, and shoulder pads
which should not be pressed flat. Use Pressing Cushion provided for use in these areas.
Warning: Do not attempt to lower the Pressing Plate to its lowest position or
lock the press with the Pressing Cushion in between. You may damage your
press by doing so.
