UNPACKING
BEFORE YOU START
Unpack the iron from the carton.
Location for ironing
Retain the carton and packing for future use. If you have to
dispose of the carton and packing, please do so responsibly.
Always iron on an ironing board that has an area to stand the
iron safely when not in use. Never iron on furniture, carpets or
heat-sensitive surfaces as the heat of the iron will damage the
ironing surface. Never iron clothes on the body.
The carton should contain 1 x KB-156A2 iron.
1 x Filling cup.
1 x Owner’s handbook.
When setting up your ironing board, find a location where there
is enough space around the ironing board for you to reach with
your iron. Ensure that the cable can easily reach a power outlet
from all positions on the ironing board and that the cable will not
be a hazard to people or pets.
Always keep children and pets away from the area when you
are ironing.
Taking care of your iron when ironing
The surface of the soleplate has a special coating for smooth
ironing. Never iron over hard or metal objects such as zips,
buttons or metal surfaces on the ironing board as this may
scratch the coating.

OPERATION
First use
Ironing temperatures
Before using your iron for the first time you should ensure that it
is thoroughly cleaned.
Most garments have an iron temperature marking on a label or
tab.
• Wipe the soleplate before first use with a clean, soft cloth to
ensure the soleplate is clean.
Your iron is now ready to use.
Marking
Do not iron.
Acrylic, rayon. Low temperature.
Silk, wool. Medium temperature.
Cotton, linen. High temperature.
The temperature control on the iron is marked with the
corresponding , and
symbols.
The temperature control is also marked for different fabrics. If
you have garments that have no iron temperature label, set the
temperature control using the fabric marking on the dial. For
mixed fabrics, set the lower temperature.
Sorting your garments for ironing
Before starting to iron, check the markings on the garments and
sort the clothing and fabrics into groups which need different
temperature settings. Always iron the lowest temperature items
first as the iron will heat up quicker than cooling down.

OPERATION
Steam ironing
Steam ironing works by generating a cushion of steam under the
iron. Most garments are suitable for steam ironing though some
exceptions are pure wool, velvet and corduroy garments.
• Check that the iron is disconnected from mains power.
• Turn the steam control to the ‘0’ (steam off) position.
• Open the water filler cap.
• Position the iron so that the filler inlet is vertical and fill with
fresh, clean water from the filler cup (supplied) to the Max
level mark on the iron. Never overfill the iron.
• Set the steam control to the level you want (mid-way is a
good starting point).
• You can now begin to iron your clothes.
Steam will be generated when the iron is in the horizontal ironing
position and will cut off when you stand the iron vertically. You
can also shut off steam by turning the steam control to the ‘0’
position.
• You can regulate the flow of steam during ironing with the
steam control.
Never use any perfumes or additives as these may damage the
iron.
Everyone has their own techniques for ironing, but as a general
rule, iron the larger areas first and work out into the corners of
garments. Keep the iron moving at all times - the heat from a
stationary iron will damage clothing.
• Close the water filler cap.
Re-filling the tank
• Turn the Temperature control to the temperature you want.
• Stand the iron upright on the ironing board rest and connect
the power cord to a mains power outlet.
The temperature light will come on and the iron will heat up.
When the iron reaches working temperature, the temperature
light will switch off. The iron is now ready to use.
The steam control will regulate the flow of steam when you are
ironing.
If you use all the water in the tank and want to continue ironing.
• Turn the steam control to the ‘0’ (steam off) position.
• Disconnect the iron from mains power.
• Fill the iron as previously described.
Dry ironing
• To dry iron garments, follow the steps for steam ironing, but
without filling the water tank.

SPECIAL FEATURES FOR STEAM IRONING

wall-hangings etc.
CAUTION: Stand behind the iron at all times and keep it facing
away from you.

CARE AND CLEANING
Self-clean

cloth.
