instructions
Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the iron on.
Remove all packaging before use.
A IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This iron must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult. Use
and store it out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the iron in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or
outdoors.
3 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
4 Don’t iron clothing while it’s being worn – you’ll burn or scald the wearer (this is not
a joke – I’ve seen it happen).
5 Don’t touch the soleplate, and keep away from the steam coming from it.
6 Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
7 Use the iron, or set it on its heel, on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, preferably
an ironing board.
8 Don’t leave the iron unattended while plugged in, or while it’s standing on the
ironing board. It could be knocked over by you, by a child, or by a pet.
9 Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
10 Don’t fill the iron directly from the tap, use the jug.
11 Don’t fill past max, or water may escape in use.
12 Sit the iron upright when you’re not ironing, and when you store it away.
13 Leave the iron upright to cool before cleaning.
14 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
15 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory unless we supply it.
16 Don’t use the iron for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
17 Take care not to scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
18 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped or damaged, or if it malfunctions or leaks.
2
19 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.
20 If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.
household use only
U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
• Don’t worry if the iron smokes a bit at first, it’ll stop as the element cures.
• Iron an old piece of cotton fabric, to clean the soleplate.
• Press the ~ and buttons 3 or 4 times, to check them out.
C PREPARATION
1 Check for textile care symbols (i j k l).
2 Iron fabrics needing low temperatures j first, then those that need medium
temperatures k, and finish with those needing high temperatures l.
X FILLING
3 You may use the iron with tap-water, but if you live in a hard water area, you should
use distilled water (not chemically descaled or softened water).
4 If you buy distilled water, check that it’s marketed as suitable for use in irons.
5 Unplug the iron.
6 Turn the temperature control to •, turn the steam control to S (#3).
7 Lift the front of the water inlet cover to open it.
8 Hold the iron with the water inlet cover vertical.
9 Pour slowly, to let the air in the reservoir escape, otherwise you’ll
cause an air lock and the water will overflow.
10 Don’t fill past max, or water will escape in use.
11 Wipe up any spillage.
C SWITCH ON

Set the temperature control to •, set the steam control to S.
Sit the iron on its heel.
Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you want next to the 9 mark (#3).
The light will come on.
When the iron reaches the temperature you set, the light will go off. It’ll then cycle
on and off as the thermostat operates to maintain the temperature.

i do not iron
, If the instructions on the fabric label differ from this guide, follow the instructions
on the label.
C REDUCING TEMPERATURE
18 This takes a bit longer, as the iron has to lose the heat it has built up, so be patient.
It’s best to organise your ironing so that you don’t need to reduce the temperature.
3
S STEAM IRONING
19 When steam ironing, you must set the temperature control at S or higher.
20 If you don’t, you’ll get water on your clothes, not steam.
21 Turn the steam control to the setting you want, S = no steam, # = high steam.
22 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.
* SPRAY
, Water spotting affects some fabrics. Test this out on a hidden part of the fabric.
23 This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir.
24 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
25 Lift the iron off the fabric.
26 Aim the spray nozzle at the fabric.
27 Press the * button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times
to pump water through the system.
S SHOT OF STEAM
28 This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir, and
the temperature is above S.
29 Check that the temperature control is at S or higher.
30 Lift the iron off the fabric.
31 Press the ~ button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump
water through the system.
32 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
n DRY IRONING
33 If you’re going to be dry ironing for 20 minutes or more, empty the
reservoir first, to avoid spontaneous bursts of steam.
34 Turn the steam control to S.
35 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.
l VERTICAL STEAMING
36 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
37 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may
build up, causing mildew.
38 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam.
39 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
40 Turn the temperature control to max, turn the steam control to S.
41 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
4
42 Press the ~ button (you’re using the “shot of steam” function
vertically).
43 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the
system.
44 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
C AFTER USE
45 Turn the temperature control to •, turn the steam control to S.
46 Unplug the iron.
47 Lift the top of the water inlet cover to open it.
48 Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain the water
from the reservoir.
49 Sit the iron on its heel.
50 Leave it to cool down completely.
51 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet cover.
52 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C SELF CLEAN
53 To prevent scale building up, use the self clean function regularly, at least monthly in
normal water areas, more often in hard water areas.
, Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a
repair charge.
54 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out of the soleplate.
55 Fill the reservoir to the max mark.
56 Turn the temperature control to max, turn the steam control to S.
57 Sit the iron on its heel.
58 Put the plug into the power socket, and wait till the light goes out.
59 Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down.
60 Press C, and hold it down.
61 Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl.
, Keep clear of the escaping water and steam.
62 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate,
and into the sink.
63 When the reservoir is empty, release C.
64 Unplug the iron, and sit it on its heel to cool.
65 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture.
66 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C CLEANING
67 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
68 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
69 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar – take care not to scratch it.
70 Don’t put the iron in water or any other liquid.
71 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
5
C ANTI-SCALE
72 The anti-scale agent incorporated in the iron helps prevent the build-up of scale.
73 Don’t use a descaling solution, or you’ll destroy the anti-scale agent.
