Before first use
0 Remove any adhesive stickers,
plastic covers or cardboard
sleeves from the soleplate.
0 Ensure that all adhesive is
removed by rubbing the soleplate
with a cloth dampened with methylated spirits.
0 Fill the water tank (see following
chapter) and empty the water. This
will rinse out any foreign particles
remaining from the manufacturing
When turned on for the first time,
your new steam iron may give off
vapours for up to 10 minutes. This
is due to the initial heating of the
materials used. It is safe, not detrimental to the performance of the
steam iron, and will not reoccur.
Filling the steam iron with
Before filling the steam iron with
water ensure that the plug is
removed from the power outlet.
The steam iron can be filled with
water while it is hot.
0 Turn the steam selector (Fig. 1/G)
to the "dry" setting.

0 Place the steam iron on its heel and
open the filling aperture cover
0 Using the beaker provided, slowly
pour water into the filling aperture
until the maximum water level (Fig.
1/B) is reached. Do not exceed the
maximum water level indicator.
0 Push the filling aperture cover
firmly to close.
The special soleplate design
allows you to use tap water with
your iron without affecting the
steam performance. However, in
very hard water areas we recommend the use of distilled or demineralised water.
Do not fill the steam iron with fabric conditioner, starches or other
solutions as these will damage the
steam mechanism. Do not use
contaminated water.
Using your steam iron
0 Plug the power cable into a
220-240 V power outlet.
The power ON light (Fig 1/H, positioned on top of the handle) will
illuminate to indicate that the
steam iron is switched on and is
heating up.
0 Turn the temperature selector
(Fig. 1/K) to the desired setting by
aligning the setting on the selector
with the temperature control light
(Fig. 1/L).
The temperature control light will
illuminate to indicate that the iron
is heating to the selected temperature. When the temperature control
light goes out the iron is at the
selected temperature and is ready
to iron.
When the temperature selector is
changed from a high setting to a
lower temperature setting during
ironing, the temperature control
light will go out immediately. This
indicates that the iron is cooling to
the selected temperature. To
ensure that the iron has reached
the selected temperature and is
not too hot, wait until the temperature control light comes on again
and then goes out before ironing.
Dry ironing
0 Connect the steam iron to the
mains and set the desired temperature as described above.
0 Select "dry" on the steam selector
(Fig. 1/G).
This will cut off the steam flow if
there is water in the tank.
Steam ironing
0 Connect the steam iron to the
mains and set the desired temperature as described above.
When steam ironing, ensure that
the temperature selector is set to
any temperature within the steam
band, and that the tank is at least
1/4 full of water.
0 Turn the steam selector (Fig. 1/G)
to the desired steam setting.
Using the spray mist
The spray mist can be used when
steam or dry ironing to predampen hard to iron fabrics.
Ensure that the tank is at least ¼
full of water.
0 Press the spray button
(Fig. 1/E)
during ironing to release a fine mist
from the spray nozzle (Fig. 1/D).
Using the steam jet function
The steam jet function can be used
when dry or steam ironing, when
the temperature control is set to
any temperature within the steam
band or above the two dot (••) setting.

Old appliance
• Sort articles to be ironed according
to the type of fabric. This will
reduce the need to adjust the temperature to suit varying garments.
• Start with garments requiring lower
temperatures and work your way
through to items requiring higher
• Fabrics such as velour, wool, linen
and silk are best ironed with an
ironing cloth to prevent shine
• If you are unsure of the fabric content of a garment, test a small area
such as a seam or inside hem section before ironing a visible area.
Start with a low temperature and
gradually increase the heat to find
the best setting for ironing the garment.
• When reducing the temperature to
iron sensitive fabrics, allow
approximately 2 minutes for the
steam iron to cool to the new setting.
• Pure woollen fabrics (100 % wool)
can be steam ironed with the temperature dial set to Wool. Use an
ironing cloth to prevent shine
marks on the fabric.
• Never iron areas of a garment
where perspiration marks are visible, as the heat of the steam iron
will fix the stains, making them
