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 purposebuilt “steam generator” 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.
Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
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.

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.

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’ll stop as the residues evaporate.

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.
Switch off (2), and unplug before filling.
Remove the reservoir by pulling it away from the body of the steam generator using the grip on the
front of the reservoir (FIG A).
Use the jug and anti-scale cartridge supplied with the appliance. Assemble the anti-scale cartridge,
jug insert and filling jug as shown.
Fill the jug insert part of the filling jug with ordinary tap water. Allow the water to pass through the
anti-scale cartridge into the jug below.
Pour the filtered water into the reservoir. Repeat until the reservoir is filled up to, but not over max.
Refit the reservoir into the base unit.
If the anti-scale cartridge needs replacing, and you don’t have a replacement, you should use distilled
water. If you buy distilled water, check that it’s suitable for irons.

Put the iron on top of the base unit.
Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
The iron will beep and the power light will flash showing that the iron is in standby mode. Press the 2
button to switch the iron on. The power light will stop flashing and stay on.
Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you require next to the mark. The thermostat light
will come on and your iron will heat up.
It’ll go out when the soleplate reaches the temperature set by the temperature control, then cycle on
and off, as the thermostat works to maintain the temperature.
Use the ( or ) buttons to select the steam level you want ( = low, = medium, = high). The
lights will come on showing the selected steam level.
The steam level lights will flash until the iron is ready to produce steam. Wait until they stop flashing
before steam ironing.

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. Use the ( or ) buttons to select the steam level you want ( = low, = medium, = high). Wait
until the steam lights stop flashing before steam ironing.
3. Squeeze the steam trigger to produce steam, release it to stop.
If you don’t press the steam trigger for 10 minutes the appliance will beep and the power light will flash.
Press the 2 button to reactivate your iron.
1.
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.
Do your dry ironing first, then switch off, fill the reservoir, and do your steam ironing.
IMPORTANT: If you have a lot of dry ironing to do, you may find that after about 10 minutes your iron will
automatically switch off. This is a built-in safety feature. If this occurs, the appliance will beep and the
power light will flash. Press the 2 button to reactivate your iron.
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.
4. Check that the temperature control is at S or higher. Wait till the thermostat light goes out.
5. Wait until the steam lights stop flashing before steam ironing.
6. 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.
ECO FUNCTION
The ECO function sets your steam generator to a level of steam output which optimises steam
consumption whilst ensuring the best ironing of the hardest-wearing fabrics (cotton/jeans/linen).
1. Press the ECO button to activate the function. The button light will flash.
2. When the optimum pressure is reached, the indicator light will stay on.
3. To exit the ECO function, press the ECO button again. Your steam generator will revert to the
previously selected steam setting.
LOW WATER
Your iron will beep continuously and the empty reservoir light

3.
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
The life of the anti-scale cartridge depends on the frequency of use and the hardness of the water in your
area. It should last for about 100 uses in a soft water area.
1. Remove the cartridge from the jug insert by pressing it from below.
2. When you remove the anti-calc cartridge note its orientation before fitting the replacement because
it will only fit correctly one way round.
REPLACEMENT ANTI-SCALE CARTRIDGES

2.
Have the appliance Model Number to hand, as we won’t be able to help you without it. It’s on the
rating plate (usually underneath the product).
Ring 0845 658 9700, or email service@russellhobbs.com, for prices, then purchase replacements using
VISA or MASTERCARD.
DESCALING THE BOILER
Note: Russell Hobbs multi purpose descaler is NOT suitable for descaling your steam generator.
•
To maintain optimum performance, clean the boiler every 10-20 uses depending on the water
hardness where you live.
•
It’s best to do this on top of a towel on the work surface in the kitchen, as you’re likely to spill a bit,
and you’ll need access to water and a sink (or a basin).
•
Remove the reservoir (you’re going to place the base unit on its side).
1. Leave it for a minimum of 4 hours to cool down completely (overnight is best).
2. Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of warm water in a jug.
3. Set the iron down on the work surface – take care not to scratch the soleplate.
4. Place the base unit on its side.
5. Unscrew the boiler drain plug (FIG B).
6. Empty any water already in the boiler into the sink.
7. Place the base unit on its side again, and pour the vinegar/water mix into the hole.
8. Replace the drain plug and shake the base unit from side to side.
9. Leave it for half an hour, then unscrew the drain plug and use the boiler cleaning brush to clean the
boiler (FIG C). Empty the boiler into the sink.
10. Now rinse, to remove scale and vinegar:
a) Place the base unit on its side, fill with water
b) shake, then empty it into the sink
11. Repeat until the water that comes out is clear, free of scale particles, and doesn’t smell of vinegar.
12. Finally, replace the drain plug and store it away.
Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a repair charge.
