Don’ts
Do’s
This iron is intended for domestic use only and NOT for commercial
or industrial use.
•Only use the iron indoors and keep the area you’re ironing well lit.
•If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons
in order to avoid a hazard.
•Keep the iron and its cord out of reach of children less than
8 years of age when it is energised or cooling down.
•This iron can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons
with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and
knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use
of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Children
shall not play with the iron. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by
children without supervision.
•Don’t touch any hot areas on your iron. The soleplate on the iron
can become extremely hot and may cause burns if touched.
•Don’t leave the iron unattended while it is connected to the mains
and before it has cooled down.
•Don’t use the iron if has been dropped, damaged, immersed
in water, left outdoors or has any visible signs of leaking.
•Don’t hold the iron under a running water tap, always use a jug to fill.
•Don’t touch the power cord with the irons soleplate.
•Don’t use the iron if the power cord or plug is damaged.
•Please contact our Customer Care Line on: 0330 026 8455
(Mon-Fri 8:30am to 6:30pm, Sat 9:00am to 5:00pm)
•Don’t handle the plug or use the iron with wet hands.
•Don’t pull or carry the iron by the power cord.
•Don’t use the power cord as a handle, pull the power cord around corners or
sharp edges or close a door over the power cord. Don’t unplug the iron by pulling
on the power cord.
•Don’t aim the steam jet at people, animals, plants and electrical components
or wires. Never touch the steam jet (there is a risk of scalding).
•Don’t use the iron with incorrect voltage as this may result in damage or injury
to the user. The correct voltage is listed on the ratings label.
•Don’t use the iron on clothing that are still being worn on the body.
•Don’t open the filling aperture during use.
•Always switch off, unplug from mains and allow the iron to cool
down before carrying out any maintenance or troubleshooting.
•Always stand the iron in the upright position between uses and
keep the iron moving whilst in use. Leaving the soleplate in contact
with any surface for an extended period of time will cause damage.
•When placing the iron on its stand, ensure that the surface on
which the stand is placed is stable.
•Always use the iron on a heat resistant, stable, level surface.
•Always unplug the iron from the mains before the water tank is
filled with water.
•Always fill the water tank with water only. Never add perfume,
descaler or products containing alcohol. Filling the water tank with
hot or boiling water will invalidate the warranty.
•Always ensure the soleplate and surfaces are free from grit and debris before use.
•Always carry the iron by the handle.
•Always empty the water tank when the iron is not in use.
•Always replace the fuse in the plug with a British 13amp fuse. Always protect
the power cord from heated surfaces or near open flames.
•Use only CE approved 13amp extension cords, non-approved extension cords
can overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the extension cord as it could be
a trip hazard.
•Before storing make sure the iron has fully cooled, the water tank is empty
and wrap the power cord around the iron. Store the iron in a cool, dry area
away from children.

Getting in touch
Solution
• The plug may not be fully pushed into the electrical socket.
• Check the fuse in the plug if this needs replacing, always use
a British 13amp fuse.
• There may be no water in water tank, fill the water tank.
• The temperature control dial or steam control has not been set
to the appropriate settings. Go to ‘Getting started’.
• The iron has a build up of limescale, Go to ‘Cleaning and maintenance’.
• The steam boost button has been pressed too often within a short period.
Continue ironing in a horizontal position, after a short period of time use the
boost button again.
• The temperature control dial has not been set at a temperature the steam
boost function can be used (
to Max). Stand the iron in the upright
position, adjust the control dial and wait for the heating indicator light to go
out before using the steam boost.
• The water tank is not full enough. Unplug the iron from the mains and add
water to the water tank.
• The water fill cover is not correctly closed. Close the water fill cover.
• The steam boost button has been pressed with the control dial set at
the incorrect temperature. The steam boost function can be used
(
to Max).
• Excessive use of the steam burst button can reduce the temperature
of the soleplate temporarily meaning that it will need to heat up again.
If this happens the water may potentially pool in the ‘boiler’.
• The automatic shut off mode has been activated. Gently shake the iron to
re-use, the heater indicator light will illuminate red when heating up, the light
will turn green when temperature has been reached and ready to use.
