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 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 it out of reach of children.
2 Use the iron, or set it on its heel, on a stable, level, heat-resistant
surface, preferably an ironing board.
3 Unplug the iron before filling, before cleaning, and after use.
2
4 Don’t leave the iron unattended while plugged in or standing on
the ironing board. It could be knocked over.
5 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped, damaged, malfunctions or leaks.
6 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.
7 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
8 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).
9 Don’t touch the soleplate, and keep away from the steam coming from it.
10 Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
11 Don’t fill the iron directly from the tap, use the jug.
12 Don’t fill past max, or water may escape in use.
13 Sit the iron upright when you’re not ironing, and when you store it away.
14 Leave the iron upright to cool before cleaning.
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 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
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 Set the temperature control to •.
7 Place the iron on its soleplate.
8 Open the water inlet cover.
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.

Set 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).
Turn the temperature control to bring the setting you want next to the marker ^.
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.

, 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.
S STEAM IRONING
19 Steam is available when the temperature control is at S or above.
20 The iron will adjust the amount of steam automatically.
21 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.
22 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
23 Lift the iron off the fabric.
24 Aim the spray nozzle at the fabric.
25 Press the * button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through
the system.
S SHOT OF STEAM
26 Steam is available when the temperature control is at S or above.
27 Lift the iron off the fabric.
28 Press the S button – you may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through
the system.
29 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
n DRY IRONING
30 If you’re going to dry iron, you must empty the reservoir first.
a) Unplug the iron.
b) Open the water inlet cover.
c) Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain it.
d) Wipe any spillage off the iron before use.
31 Set the temperature.
32 Wait till the light goes out, then start ironing.

l 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 Turn the temperature control to max.
38 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
39 Press the ~ button (you’re using the “shot of steam” function vertically).
40 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the system.
41 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
C AFTER USE
42 Turn the temperature control to •.
43 Unplug the iron.
44 Open the water inlet cover.
45 Hold the iron over a sink, turn it upside down, and drain it.
46 Sit the iron on its heel.
47 Leave it to cool down completely.
48 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and close the water inlet cover.
49 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C SELF CLEAN
50 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.
51 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water coming out of the soleplate.
52 Fill the reservoir to the max mark.
53 Turn the temperature control to max.
54 Sit the iron on its heel.
55 Put the plug into the power socket, and wait till the light goes out.
56 Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down.
57 Press C, and hold it down.
58 Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl.
, Keep clear of the escaping water and steam.
59 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate, and into the sink.
60 When the reservoir is empty, release C.
61 Unplug the iron, and sit it on its heel to cool.
62 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture.
63 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
C CLEANING
64 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
65 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
66 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar – take care not to scratch it.
