instructions
Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the iron on, pass on the
instructions too. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the iron works.
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 Take care when emptying the iron – it may contain hot water.
7 Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
8 Use the iron on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, preferably an ironing board.
9 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.
10 Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
11 Sit the iron upright when you’re not ironing, and when you store it away.
12 Leave the iron upright to cool before cleaning.
13 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
14 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory other than those we supply.
15 Keep the iron and the cable away from hotplates, hobs or burners.
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 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.
19 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped or damaged, or if it malfunctions or leaks.
20 If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.
household use only

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 # button 3 or 4 times, to check it out.
Press the * button 3 or 4 times, to check it out.
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/max.
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 Move the steam control to S.
7 Hold the iron with the heel uppermost.
8 Press the V button in fully, and hold it in – this opens the filling valve.
9 Pour water into the heel till it stops disappearing into the reservoir,
and starts to back up.
10 Let the V button go, to close the valve and seal the reservoir.
11 Tip any excess water out of the heel, into the sink or the filling jug.
12 Wipe up any spillage.

Turn the temperature control to •.
Sit the iron on its heel.
Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
The heel and reservoir will glow, to show that the iron is connected to the electricity
supply.
17 Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you want next to the 5 mark (#3).
18 The thermostat light will come on.
19 When the iron reaches the temperature you set, the thermostat light will go out. It’ll
then cycle on and off as the thermostat operates to maintain the temperature.

reducing temperature
20 Reducing the temperature takes a bit longer, as the element 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 (“preparation” page 3, point 2).
steam ironing
21 When steam ironing, you must set the temperature control to S or higher.
22 If you don’t, you’ll get water on your clothes, not steam.
23 Move the steam control to the setting you want, S = no steam, # = high steam (#3).
24 Wait till the thermostat light goes out, then start ironing.
spray
, Water spotting affects some fabrics. Test this out on a hidden part of the fabric.
25 This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir.
26 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
27 Lift the iron off the fabric.
28 Aim the spray nozzle at the fabric.
29 Press the * button.
30 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water
through the system.
shot of steam
31 This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir, and
the temperature is above S.
32 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
33 Check that the temperature control is at S or higher.
34 Lift the iron off the fabric.
35 Press the # button.
36 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the
system.
37 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
dry ironing
, If you’re going to be dry ironing for 15 minutes or more, empty the reservoir first, to
avoid spontaneous bursts of steam.
38 Move the steam control to S.
39 Wait till the thermostat light goes out, then start ironing.

vertical steaming
40 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and
furnishing fabrics.
41 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric,
otherwise moisture may build up, causing mildew.
42 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged
by the steam.
43 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
44 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
45 Turn the temperature control to max, move the steam control to S.
46 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
47 Press the # button (you’re using the “shot of steam” function
vertically).
48 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the
system.
49 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
after use

51 Unplug the iron.
52 Press the V button in fully, and hold it in, to open the filling valve.
53 Empty the reservoir, via the heel, into the sink or the filling jug.

54 Let the V button go, to close the valve and seal the reservoir.
55 Sit the iron on its heel.
56 Leave it to cool down completely.
57 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet
cover.
58 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
self clean C
59 To prevent scale building up, use the self clean function regularly, at least monthly in
normal water areas, more often in hard water areas.
60 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out of the soleplate.
61 Fill the reservoir.
62 Turn the temperature control to max, move the steam control to S.
63 Sit the iron on its heel.
64 Put the plug into the power socket.
65 When the thermostat light goes out, unplug the iron.
66 Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate
down.
67 Press the C button in, hold it in, and gently move the iron to
and fro, over the basin or bowl.
caution keep clear of the escaping water and steam
68 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate, and into the sink.

70 Sit the iron on its heel to cool.
71 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and wind the cable round the heel.
72 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
anti-scale
73 The anti-scale agent incorporated in the iron helps prevent the build-up of scale.
74 Don’t use a descaling solution, or you’ll destroy the anti-scale agent.
cleaning
75 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
76 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
77 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar.
78 Take care not to scratch the soleplate.
79 Don’t put the iron in water or any other liquid.
80 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.

connection
The product must be earthed. It has a 13A BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363
plug. To replace the plug, fit the green/yellow wire to E or E, the blue wire
to N, and the brown wire to L. Fit the cord grip. If in doubt, call an
electrician. Don’t use a non-rewireable plug unless the fuse cover is in
place. If you remove the plug, dispose of it.
