Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the iron on.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
This appliance 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 supervised/instructed and
understand the hazards involved. Children shall not play with the appliance.
Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be done by children unless they
are older than 8 and supervised. Keep the iron and cable out of reach of
children under 8 years.
Sit the base unit on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, preferably a
purpose-built “steam station” type ironing board.
Rest the iron only on the base unit.
Don’t leave the iron unattended while plugged in or standing on the
ironing board. It could be knocked over.
Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped, damaged, malfunctions or leaks.
If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.
h The surfaces of the appliance will get hot.
B Don’t put the iron in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or
outdoors.

Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
Don’t iron clothing while it’s being worn – you’ll burn or scald the wearer.
Don’t touch the soleplate, and keep away from the steam coming from it.
Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
Don’t sit the base unit on a soft, carpeted, or upholstered surface, as this may block the vents
underneath the base unit.
Keep the cables and steam pipe away from hot parts.
Don’t use the iron for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
Take care not to scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
The iron has a protective thermal fuse, which will blow if it overheats. If this happens, the iron will
stop working, and must be returned for repair.

BEFORE FIRST USE
•
•
Remove any labels, stickers or packaging from the iron and soleplate.
Before using the iron for the first time, or if it’s not been used for a long time, iron a scrap piece of
cotton (an old towel is ideal) to remove any accumulated residues.
Don’t worry if the iron smokes a bit at first, it will soon stop as the manufacturing residues evaporate.
•
FILLING/REFILLING
•
1.
2.
3.
Don’t add anything to the water and don’t use water with anything added to it. When the water is
converted to steam, chemicals, perfume, and other additives will coat the inside of the steam
chamber, shortening the life of the iron.
Remove the reservoir by pulling it away from the body of the steam station using the grip on the front
of the reservoir .
Fill the reservoir to the max mark. Do not exceed the max mark.
Refit the reservoir into the base unit.
PRELIMINARY SETTINGS
1. Put the iron on top of the base unit.
2. Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
3. Turn the unit on by setting the on/off button to I.
Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you require next to the mark.
TEMPERATURE SELECTION GUIDE

Check for textile care symbols (i j k l)..
Iron fabrics needing low temperatures first, then those that need medium temperatures , and finish
with those needing high temperatures (or max).
Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you require next to the mark.
If the instructions on the fabric label differ from this guide, follow the instructions on the label.

STEAM IRONING
Set the temperature control to S or higher – otherwise the steam might condense on the soleplate,
giving you water instead of steam.
2. Squeeze the steam trigger to produce steam, release it to stop.
NOTE: When you first start your steam station and pull the trigger for steam ironing, there will be a
delay as your steam station pumps water from the reservoir to prime the system. This is normal and
may take 20-30 seconds. This will also happen after refilling the reservoir.

STEAM READY LIGHT
The steam ready light will flash while the iron is heating up. Wait until the steam ready light stops flashing
before trying to steam iron. Note that operating the steam trigger will have no effect until the steam ready
light stops flashing.
DRY IRONING
You can dry iron by just not pressing the steam button, but if you want to make sure you don’t press it
accidentally, then you should iron with an empty reservoir. You can do your dry ironing first, then
switch off, fill the reservoir and do your steam ironing.
VERTICAL STEAMING
Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
•
Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may build up,
causing mildew.
•
Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam.
•
Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
1. Check that the temperature control is at S or higher.
2. Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric. Hold it well away for delicate fabrics.
We recommend using the steam trigger to produce steam for smaller areas, as it gives you better
control.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

4.
Unplug the base unit, and let the appliance cool down fully.
Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar.
Take care not to scratch the soleplate.
ANTI-SCALE CARTRIDGE
To extend the life of the appliance and to avoid problems with lime scale, your steam station is fitted with
an anti-scale cartridge. The life of the anti-scale cartridge depends on the frequency of use and the hardness
of the water in your area. In a soft water area this should be about 100 uses. Do not put any descaling
products (including vinegar) into the reservoir. This can damage the appliance
To replace the cartridge:

4.
Switch off and unplug your steam station
Allow your steam station to cool down for at least 1 hour until the soleplate is cold.
Remove the water tank from the front of the unit.
Pull the anti -scale cartridge vertically out of the water tank. Note that the cartridge may contain
water when it is removed (Fig A.)
5. Fit the new cartridge and push it down firmly into the water tank.
6. Refill and refit the water tank.
7. Plug in your steam station.
8. Once the appliance is ready, pull the steam trigger until the steam is being produced. This will prime
the system.
Important: Using the appliance without changing the cartridge can cause a reduction in the generated
steam output and damage the appliance. The guarantee will not cover damage caused to the appliance by
not changing the anti-scale cartridge when required.
