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.
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 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 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
16 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory other than those we supply.
17 Keep the iron and the cable away from hotplates, hobs or burners.
18 Don’t use the iron for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
19 Take care not to scratch the soleplate – avoid buttons, zips, etc.
20 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.
21 Don’t use the iron if it’s dropped or damaged, or if it malfunctions or leaks.
22 If the cable is damaged, the iron must be returned, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only
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 ~ button 3 or 4 times, to check it out.
Press the * button 3 or 4 times, to check it out.
auto shut-off
• If the iron is motionless, it’ll switch the element and the temperature button light off
after about 30 seconds with the soleplate down, or about 15 minutes if it’s upright.
• The iron will beep, the indicator light will flash, then keep on flashing till you move
the iron.
• To switch on again, simply lift it up, then sit it upright to return to operating
temperature (25-45 seconds, depending on the setting).
• No settings are lost – the correct button will light up after you move the iron.
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.
filling
3 The iron may be used 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 Slide the steam control to x (#3).
7 Sit the iron on its soleplate.
8 Flip the water inlet cover forward, to expose the water inlet.
9 Pour water from the jug into the water inlet.
10 Pour slowly, and try to pour down one side of the inlet, to
allow the air in the reservoir to escape, otherwise you’ll cause an air lock and the
water will overflow.
11 Don’t fill past max, or water may escape in use.
12 Close the water inlet cover, or water may escape in use.
13 Wipe up any spillage.

Sit the iron on its heel.
Slide the steam control to x (#3).
Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
The indicator light will come on, and it’ll stay on as long as the iron is connected to
the electricity supply (if you leave it, and the iron shuts off, it’ll flash).
18 The iron will beep; the temperature buttons will flash in turn, then go out.
19 Press and release the button which suits the fabric you’re about to iron – •, ••, •••,
or max (see the guide below).
20 The button will flash while the element heats/cools to the chosen temperature, then
it’ll glow steadily when the correct temperature is reached.
, The button will also flash while you’re ironing, as the thermostat works to maintain
the temperature – we recommend that you ignore it and carry on ironing.

reducing temperature
21 Reducing temperature can take a while. If you lift the iron off the ironing board,
keeping the soleplate down, and press the steam button a few times, you’ll bleed
off much of the excess heat as steam. Take care where the steam goes.
steam ironing
22 When steam ironing, you must set the temperature to ••• or higher.
23 If you don’t, you may get water on your clothes, not steam.
24 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
25 Slide the steam control (#3), to the setting you want (x = no steam, 1 = low, 5 = high).
26 Wait till the iron heats up, and the button glows steadily, then start ironing.
spray
, Water spotting affects some fabrics. Test this out on a hidden part of the fabric.
27 This works with dry or steam ironing, as long as there’s water in the reservoir.
28 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
29 Lift the iron off the fabric.

dry ironing
40 If you’re going to be dry ironing for 20 minutes or more, empty
the reservoir first, to avoid spontaneous bursts of steam.
41 Slide the steam control to x.
42 Wait till the iron heats up, and the button glows steadily, then
start ironing.
vertical steaming
43 Remove wrinkles from hanging clothes, hanging curtains, and furnishing fabrics.
44 Check that there’s adequate ventilation behind the fabric, otherwise moisture may
build up, causing mildew.
45 Check that there’s nothing behind the fabric that may be
damaged by the steam.
46 Check that pockets, turn-ups, and cuffs are empty.
47 Check that there’s water in the reservoir.
48 Press and release the max button, slide the steam control to x.
49 Wait till the iron heats up, and the button glows steadily, then start ironing.
50 Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric.
51 Press the ~ button.
52 You may have to press it 2 or 3 times to pump water through the system.
53 Leave 4 seconds between shots, to let the temperature build up.
after use
54 Slide the steam control to x.
55 Unplug the iron.
56 Hold it over a sink, flip the water inlet cover forward, turn the
iron upside down, and drain the reservoir, via the water inlet.
caution the water may be hot.
57 Sit the iron on its heel.
58 Leave it to cool down completely.
59 When it’s cold, close the water inlet cover, wipe off any moisture from the iron, and
wind the cable round the heel.
60 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.

self clean
61 To prevent scale building up, use the self clean function
regularly, at least monthly in normal water areas, more
often in hard water areas.
62 You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to catch the water
coming out of the soleplate.
63 Fill the reservoir to the max mark.
64 Sit the iron on its heel.
65 Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
66 Press and release the max button, slide the steam control to x.
67 Wait till the iron heats up, and the button glows steadily.
68 Now hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down (#9).
69 Press the self clean button, keep it pressed, and gently move the iron to and fro,
over the basin or bowl.
caution keep clear of the escaping water and steam
70 Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate, and into the sink.
71 When the reservoir is empty, release the self clean button.
72 Unplug the iron (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable), and sit it on its heel to
cool.
73 When it’s cold, wipe off any moisture, and wind the cable round the heel.
74 Store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.
anti-scale
75 The anti-scale agent incorporated in the iron helps prevent the build-up of scale.
76 Don’t use a descaling solution, or you’ll destroy the anti-scale agent.
cleaning
77 Unplug the iron when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it cool
down fully before cleaning and storing away.
78 Wipe outer surfaces with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
79 Remove spots from the soleplate with a little vinegar.
80 Take care not to scratch the soleplate.
81 Don’t put the iron in water or any other liquid.
82 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
