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. Use and store the appliance out of reach of
children under 8 years.
2 Use the iron, or set it on its heel, on a stable, level, heat-resistant
surface, preferably an ironing board.
3 Don’t leave the iron unattended while plugged in, or while it’s
standing on the ironing board.
4 Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
5 Don’t operate the appliance if it’s dropped or damaged, or if it
malfunctions or leaks.
6 If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.
¬ The surfaces of the appliance will get hot.
2
H Don’t put the appliance in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
7 Don’t iron clothing while it’s being worn – you’ll injure the wearer.
8 Don’t use the appliance for any purpose other than those described in these
instructions.
9 Don’t scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
10 The appliance has a protective thermal fuse, which will blow if it overheats. If this
happens, the appliance will stop working, and must be returned for repair.
household use only
U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
•
•
•
•
Remove labels, stickers and packaging from the iron and soleplate.
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.
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.
b TEMPERATURE SETTING GUIDE

i do not iron
, If the instructions on the fabric label differ from this guide, follow the instructions
on the label.
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.
7 Lift the sides of the water inlet cover to open it.
8 Hold the iron with the soleplate down.
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

Turn the temperature control to •, turn 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 5 mark.
The light will glow.
When the iron reaches the temperature you set, the light will go off. It’ll then cycle
3
on and off as the thermostat operates to maintain the temperature.
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.
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 there’s water in the reservoir.
30 Check that the temperature control is at S or higher.
31 Lift the iron off the fabric.
32 Press the ~ button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through
the system.
33 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
n DRY IRONING
34 If you’re going to be dry ironing for 20 minutes or more, empty the reservoir first, to
avoid spontaneous bursts of steam.
35 Turn the steam control to S.
36 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.
m VERTICAL STEAMING
37 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
38 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may
build up, causing mildew.
39 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be damaged by the steam.
40 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
41 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
42 Turn the temperature control to max, turn the steam control to S.
43 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
44 Press the ~ button (you’re using the “shot of steam” function vertically).
45 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the system.
46 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.

C AFTER USE
47 Turn the temperature control to •, turn the steam control to S.
48 Unplug the iron.
49 Lift the top of the water inlet cover to open it.
50 Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain the water from the reservoir.
51 Sit the iron on its heel.
52 Leave it to cool down completely.
53 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet cover.
54 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C SELF CLEAN
55 To prevent scale building up, use the self clean function regularly, at least monthly in
normal water areas, more often in hard water areas.
56 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out of the soleplate.
57 Fill the reservoir to the MAX mark.
58 Turn the temperature control to max, turn the steam control to S.
59 Sit the iron on its heel.
60 Put the plug into the power socket, and wait till the light goes out.
61 Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down.
62 Press the C, and hold it down.
63 Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl.
64 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate, and into the sink.
65 When the reservoir is empty, release the C button.
66 Unplug the iron, and sit it on its heel to cool.
67 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture.
68 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C CLEANING
69 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
70 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
71 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar – take care not to scratch it.
72 Don’t put the iron in water or any other liquid.
73 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
