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 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 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 avoid the steam coming from it.
6 Don’t use the iron in the vicinity of children.
7 Use the iron, or set it on its heel, on a stable, level, heat-resistant
surface, preferably an ironing board.
8 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.
9 Unplug the iron when not in use, before filling, moving, or
cleaning.
10 Don’t fill the iron directly from the tap, use the jug.
11 Sit the iron upright when you’re not ironing, when it’s cooling,
and when you store it away.
12 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory unless we supply it.
13 Don’t use the iron for any purpose other than those described in
these instructions.
14 Take care not to scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
15 The iron has a protective thermal fuse. If it overheats, the iron will
stop working, and must be returned for repair.
16 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped or damaged, or if it
malfunctions or leaks.
17 If the cable is damaged, return the iron, to avoid hazard.

U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME

• Iron an old piece of cotton fabric, to clean the soleplate.
• Press the ~ and * buttons 3 or 4 times, to check them out.
C AUTO SHUT-OFF
• The iron will switch itself off if it’s motionless for 30 seconds with
the soleplate down, or on its side, or 8 minutes sitting upright.
• Lift it, tilt it forward, then sit it upright to return to its operating
temperature (25-45 seconds, depending on the setting).
• No settings are lost during auto shut-off.

cloth, to ensure any chemical residues are purged from the iron,
before returning it to normal use.
