Press the ~ and * buttons 3 or 4 times, to check them.
C AUTO SHUT-OFF
• If the iron is motionless, it will switch off after about 30 seconds
lying down, or about 8 minutes if it’s upright.
• It’ll beep, the light will blink continuously till you move the iron.
• To switch on again, lift it up, tilt it forward, then sit it upright to
return to operating temperature.
• No settings are lost during auto shut-off.
C PREPARATION

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 suitable for use in irons.
5 Set the temperature control to •, set the steam control to S.
6 Unplug the iron.
7 Hold the iron with the soleplate down.
8 Pull the top of the water inlet cover to open it.
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
12 Set the temperature control to •, set the steam control to S.
13 Sit the iron on its heel.
14 Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s
switchable).
15 Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you want next
to the 9 mark. The light will glow.
16 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.
S STEAM IRONING
17 To steam iron, set the temperature control at S or higher.
18 Set the steam control to the setting you want, S = no steam,
# = high steam.
19 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.

part of the fabric.
20 Lift the iron off the fabric.

27 If you’re going to be dry ironing for 20 minutes or more, empty
the reservoir first, to avoid spontaneous bursts of steam.
28 Set the steam control to S.
29 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.
m VERTICAL STEAMING
30 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and
furnishing fabrics.
31 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric,
otherwise moisture may build up, causing mildew.
32 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be
damaged by the steam.
33 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
34 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
35 Set the temperature control to max, set the steam control to S.
36 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
37 Press the ~ button (you’re using the “shot of steam” function
vertically).
38 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the
system.
39 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
C AFTER USE
40 Set the temperature control to •, set the steam control to S.
41 Unplug the iron.
42 Pull the top of the water inlet cover to open it.
43 Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain the water
from the reservoir.
44 Sit the iron on its heel, and leave it to cool down completely.
6
45 When cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet cover.
46 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth.
47 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar – take care
not to scratch it.
48 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the
soleplate.
C SELF CLEAN
49 To avoid scale build up, use the self clean function at least
monthly in normal water areas, more often in hard water areas.
50 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out
of the soleplate.
51 Fill the reservoir to the max mark.
52 Set the temperature control to max, set the steam control to S.

out.
55 Hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down.
56 Press the C, and hold it down.
57 Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl.
58 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate,
and into the sink.
59 When the reservoir is empty, release the C button.
60 Unplug the iron, and sit it on its heel to cool.
61 Jump to point 45.
e ANTI-SCALE

agent.
