IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using your flatiron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
1. Use iron only for its intended use.
2. To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in
water or other liquids.
3. The iron should always be turned to “Off” before plugging or unplugging from outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet; instead,
grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
4. Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely
before putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.
5. Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water
or emptying and when not in use.
6. Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble
the iron, take it to a qualified serviceman for examination and repair.
Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is
used.
7. Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or
near children. Do not leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing board.
8. Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water, or steam.
Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down – there may be hot
water in the reservoir.
9. If the malfunction indicator goes on, the flatiron is not operating normally. Disconnect form the power supply and have the flatiron serviced
by qualified service personnel.
10. For use in North America, the voltage selector switch should be placed in the 120-volt position. For use in several countries overseas, the
voltage selector switch may need to be placed in the 240-volt position.
Confirm the voltage available at each overseas location before using the
flatiron. For connection to a 240-volt supply, use a suitable attachment
plug adapter of the proper configuration for the power supply receptacle.
11. Be sure dual voltage selector is in correct voltage position before
operating. Before plugging in, read the information about dual voltage
operation contained in the instruction section of this manual.
12. This appliance was set at the factory to operate at 120 volt. Refer to
the Operating Instructions section of this manual for conversion to 240
volt operation.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage
appliance on the same circuit.
2. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 10-ampere cord should
be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be
taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be pulled or tripped over.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION FIRST!

Our advice :
With the iron in DRY mode, start by ironing fabrics at a low temperature
(•) before moving on to those requiring a higher temperature (•••).
If you turn the temperature control down, wait for approximately one minute
for the temperature to adjust before ironing again. If you are ironing fabrics
made from mixed fibers : set the iron temperature to the correct level for the
most delicate fibers.
