Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the iron on.
A IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 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.
6 Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
2
2 Sit the base unit on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface,
preferably a purpose-built “steam generator” type ironing board.
3 Rest the iron only on the base unit.
4 Use the iron only on a stable surface.
5 Don’t leave the iron unattended while plugged in or standing on
the ironing board. It could be knocked over.
7 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped, damaged, malfunctions or leaks.
8 If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.
¬ The surfaces of the appliance will get hot.
H Don’t put the iron in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
9 Don’t iron clothing while it’s being worn – you’ll burn or scald the wearer.
10 Don’t touch the soleplate, and keep away from the steam coming from it.
11 Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
12 Don’t sit the base unit on a soft, carpeted, or upholstered surface, as this may block
the vents underneath the base unit.
13 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory other than those we supply.
14 Don’t use the iron for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
15 Take care not to scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
16 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.
household use only
C REMOVE ALL PACKAGING
• Remove any labels, stickers or packaging from the iron and soleplate.
C CURE THE ELEMENT
• 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.
C WATER
1 Use ordinary tap-water – the anti-scale cartridge will soften the water.
2 If the anti-scale cartridge needs replacing, and you don’t have a replacement, you
should use distilled water while you’re waiting for the replacement to be delivered.
3 If you buy distilled water, check that it’s marketed as suitable for irons.
4 Don’t add anything to the water, and don’t use water with anything added to it.
5 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.
C FILLING
6 Switch off before filling.
7 Remove the reservoir:
a) put the fingers of one hand into the grip under the front of the reservoir
b) press the catch on the top rear of the reservoir with the other hand
c) pull the reservoir out of the base unit
3
8 Pour water into the front hole in the top of the reservoir, up to, but not over max.
9 Replace the reservoir:
d) slide the reservoir into the base unit
e) check that the catch on the reservoir clicks into place in the base unit
f) prime the iron before use – see below
C SWITCH ON
10 Sit the iron on top of the base unit.
11 Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
12 Set the off/on switch to 1. The power light will glow.
13 Set the steam control to the steam level you want ( S = low, ~ = medium, # = high).
14 When the steam ready light glows, the boiler is ready to make steam (2-3 minutes).
16 It’ll then cycle on and off as the boiler works to maintain the temperature.
17 If the temperature control on the iron is set above room temperature, the
thermostat light on the iron will glow, to show that the soleplate is heating up.
18 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.
C PRIMING
19 Prime the iron after filling the reservoir, to get water and steam through the system.
20 Hold the iron below the level of the base unit, and squeeze the steam trigger.
21 You’ll hear the pump as it pushes water through the system, then, after 30 seconds
or so, it’ll start to quieten, and steam will come out of the soleplate.
22 The iron is now primed and ready for use.

, If the instructions on the fabric label differ from this guide, follow the instructions on
the label.
26 If the soleplate is at a lower temperature that the one you’ve set, the thermostat
light on top of the iron will glow, to let you know that the soleplate is heating up.
27 When the soleplate reaches operating temperature, the thermostat light will go out,
then cycle on and off as the thermostat works to maintain the temperature
C STEAM IRONING
28 Set the temperature control to S or higher – otherwise the steam might condense
on the soleplate, giving you water, instead of steam.
, When you first want steam, you must prime the pump (opposite page).
29 Squeeze the steam trigger to produce steam, release it to stop.
30 Don’t let the reservoir empty in use, or you’ll have to prime it again when you refill it.
, Steam may still escape from the iron after you release the steam button. This is
normal, don’t worry about it.
C DRY IRONING
31 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.
32 Do your dry ironing first, then switch off, fill the reservoir, and do your steam ironing.
C VERTICAL STEAMING
33 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
34 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may
build up, causing mildew.
35 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam.
36 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
37 Check that the steam ready light is glowing.
38 Check that the temperature control is at S or higher.
39 Wait till the thermostat light goes out, then start steaming.
40 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
, Hold it well away for delicate fabrics.
41 Squeeze the steam trigger to produce steam, release it to stop the steam.
C NO WATER
42 When the water level gets low, the low water light will glow.
43 Fill the reservoir (see “filling”, on page 4), then prime the iron again.
C AFTER USE
44 Sit the iron on top of the base unit and turn the temperature control to •.
45 Set the off/on switch to 0. The power light will go off.
46 Unplug the base unit (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable).
47 Top up the reservoir a) this’ll give you a head start next time you use the iron
b) it’ll help to avoid inadvertently running out of water
48 Let the iron cool down completely before cleaning it, moving it, or storing it away.
C HOLIDAYS
50 If you leave the iron for more than a week, empty the reservoir, to avoid mould.

C CARE AND MAINTENANCE
51 Unplug the base unit, and let it and the iron cool down fully.
52 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
53 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar.
54 Take care not to scratch the soleplate.
55 Coil the cable and steam pipe loosely together.
56 Hang the top of the coil from the cable tidy.
C THE ANTI-SCALE CARTRIDGE
57 To reduce scale build-up, you must change the anti-scale cartridge regularly. How
often depends on the hardness of your water, and how much you use the iron.
58 An average user, steam ironing for 2 hours a week, should change the cartridge
every 4 to 6 weeks in a soft water area, or 2 to 3 weeks in a hard water area.
C WHAT TO WATCH FOR
59 Keep an eye on the steam output. If this reduces substantially, then it may be time to
replace the anti-scale cartridge.
60 Look out for flecks of scale on your clothes. If scale is getting through the iron, it’s
time to replace the anti-scale cartridge.
C CHANGING THE ANTI-SCALE CARTRIDGE
61 This is best done when refilling the reservoir, as you’ll have to top up the reservoir
after fitting the new cartridge anyway.
62 After removing the reservoir from the base unit, simply lift out the old anti-scale
cartridge, drop in the new one, then top up the reservoir.
C REPLACEMENT ANTI-SCALE CARTRIDGES
63 Have the Model No. to hand, as we won’t be able to help you without it. It’s on the
rating plate (usually underneath the product).
64 Ring 0845 658 9700, or email service@russellhobbs.com, for prices, then purchase
replacements using VISA or MASTERCARD.
C DESCALING THE BOILER
65 Descale the boiler every time you replace the anti-scale cartridge.
66 Leave it for a minimum of 4 hours to cool down completely (overnight is best).
67 Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of warm water in a jug.
68 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).
69 Remove the reservoir (you’re going to turn the base unit upside down).
70 Set the iron down on the work surface – take care not to scratch the soleplate.
71 Turn the base unit upside down.
72 Use a coin or screwdriver to turn the cover 90° anti-clockwise to unlock it.
73 Move the cover sideways to expose the drain.
74 Use the hexagonal wrench to unscrew the drain cap.
75 Turn the base unit over, and empty the boiler into the sink.
76 Turn the base upside down again, and pour the vinegar/water mix into the hole.
77 Replace the drain cap and shake the base unit from side to side.
78 Leave it for half an hour, then unscrew the cap again.
79 Turn the base unit over, and empty the boiler into the sink.
6
80 Now rinse, to remove scale and vinegar:
a) turn it upside down, fill with water
b) turn it back, and empty it into the sink
81 Repeat point 80 till the water that comes out is clear,
free of scale particles, and doesn’t smell of vinegar.
82 Finally, replace the cap, replace the cover, turn the
cover 90° clockwise to lock it closed, turn the base
unit upright, and store it away.
, Products returned under guarantee with faults due
to scale will be subject to a repair charge.
