IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the iron.
2. Use iron only for its intended use.
3. To protect against a risk of electrical shock, do not immerse in water or other liquids.
4. The iron thermostat should always be turned to its lowest position before plugging or unplugging from
outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet, instead grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
5. Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting away. Loop cord
loosely around iron when storing.
6. Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling iron with water or emptying and when not in use.
7. Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid the risk of
electrical shock, do not disassemble the iron. Send it to an authorized EURO-PRO Operating LLC service
center for examination and repair. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when iron is used.
8. Close supervision is necessary for any appliance used by or near children. Do not leave iron unattended
while connected or on an ironing board.
9. Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam. Use caution when you turn a
steam iron upside down as there may be hot water in the reservoir.
Never direct steam at any person, especially when using the iron in a vertical position. The steam is
very hot and can cause burns.
10. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by EURO-PRO Operating LLC may result in fire,
electrical shock or personal injury.
11. Do not operate in the presence of explosive and/or flammable fumes.
12. Check if the voltage on the type plate (under the water tank) corresponds to the main voltage in your home.
13. Take care that children cannot touch the iron when hot and that they cannot pull the main cord or the
supply hose.
14. The ejected steam is hot and therefore hazardous. Never direct the steam towards people.
15. Never immerse the iron or the water tank in water.
16. When you have finished ironing, and also when leaving the iron even for a short while:
- Set the steam control to •••
- Put the iron on the rubber mat;
- remove the main plug from the wall socket.
17. To take optimum care of your iron, always store it on the rubber mat on the stand. Never place the hot iron
on the plastic stand top (without the rubber mat), on the supply hose or the main cord.
18. Make sure that the cord set never touches the soleplate when hot.
19. Some parts of the iron have been slightly greased. As a result the iron may slightly smoke hen switched on
for the first time. After a short while, however, this will cease.
20. Before using the iron for the first time, remove any sticker or protective foil from the soleplate. Clean the
soleplate with a soft cloth.
21. Do not put vinegar or other descaling agents into the water tank.
22. Do not use chemically descaled water.
23. Do not place the rubber mat (10) on a table or any other surface which may be damaged by heat.
24. This product is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
25. Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
26. Do not use iron outdoors.
27. This product is for household use only.
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance on the
same circuit.
2. If an extension is absolutely necessary, a 15-ampere rated cord with a polarized plug
should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken
to arrange so that it cannot be pulled on or tripped over.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If
the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do no attempt to defeat this safety
feature.
Warning
Water must first be pumped (look for pump light (15) to be
illuminated) from the water tank (8A) to the iron (14) before
steam will exit: water requires approximately 2 minutes to pass
through the hose (12) and reach the iron (14). Once this is
done, you will not have to wait again - you will have continuous
steam (if you keep pump on). Please note though that you
must also adjust variable steam to desired output level or
steam will not exit the iron.

Ironing Temperature
Always check first to see whether a label with ironing instructions is attached to the article to be ironed. (See table above.)
Follow these ironing instructions in all cases. If ironing instructions are missing, but you do know the kind of fabric, then
see the table. The table is valid for the materials only and is not applicable to any applied finish, gloss, etc… Fabric to
which some kind of finish has been applied (gloss, wrinkles, relief, etc.) can be ironed at the lowest temperature such as
those made of synthetic fibers. Sort the laundry out according to ironing temperature first: wool with wool, cotton with
cotton, etc…
The iron heats up quicker than it cools down. Therefore, start ironing the articles requiring the lowest temperature such as
those made of synthetic fibers. If the fabric consists of various kinds of fibers, you must always select the lowest ironing
temperature of the composition of those fibers. (For example: an article consisting of “60% polyester and 40% cotton”
should be ironed at the temperature indicated for polyester (•) and without steam.)
If you do not know what kind(s) of fabric(s) the article has been made of, find a spot which will be invisible when wearing
or using the article. Try out the ironing temperature which is most suitable there. (Start at a relatively low temperature.)
Pure woolen fabrics (100% wool) may be pressed with the iron set to a steam position. Preferable set the steam control
to maximum position and use a dry pressing cloth. When steam-ironing woolen fabrics, shining of the fabric may occur.
This can be prevented by turning the article inside out and ironing the reverse side.
Velvet and other textures which rapidly acquire shiny spots should be ironed in one direction only (with the nap) applying
light pressure. Always keep the iron moving.
Iron the reverse side of synthetic materials and silk to prevent shining spots. Do not use the spray button to prevent
stains.
2
Before First Use
Remove any labels, stickers or tags which may be attached to the body or the
soleplate of the iron before using the iron.
Read all instructions carefully. Always follow the Important Safeguards.
IMPORTANT
The first time an iron is used, some odor and small white particles may come out of the
steam vents. This is perfectly normal and will cease to occur after the iron has been in use
for a short while.
Before you start using your iron, follow the instructions in manual and do the following in order
to eliminate any odor and small white residue particles and to ensure optimum steam
performance.
How the Water is Pumped to the Iron
1. The water is pumped from the water tank (8A) to the iron (14) through the supply hose (12)
by a built-in water pump.
2. This water pump is activated by pulling on the trigger (3). The water pump pilot light (15)
will go on.
3. The water pump will stay activated as long as your finger pulls the trigger (3) or the trigger
will stay pulled in permanently if the trigger lock (3A) is pushed backwards.
But you will only get steam if the variable steam Control (2) is above Minimum. i.e.
between “Min” and “Max” levels. Please note that you can also achieve continuous
steam in the vertical position.
• Fill the water tank (8A) according to instructions on filling (see page 5).
• Set the temperature control (1) to its highest level.
• Set the steam control (2) to “0”.
• When the “Temperature Pilot Light” (7) goes off, indicating that the iron has reached its
selected temperature,
Then
• Set the variable steam control (2) to MAXIMUM.
• Pull the steam trigger (3) (located below the handle) to activate the internal water pump.
• Push the trigger lock (3A) backwards, so that the steam trigger (3) will stay pulled.
• Steam will come out after about 2 minutes. Please be patient for the first usage after which
there will be no further waiting.
• Iron on a piece of cloth / towel for 2 minutes.
• Place the iron on the rubber mat (10) and allow it to steam for 5 minutes.
• Press the “burst of steam” knob (6) to eliminate white residue particles.
3
Installing the Rubber Mat (10) onto the Iron Stand (8)
Please note that during transportation, the rubber mat (10) may come off its place.
• The iron stand (8) has 5 holes on the circumference of its top.
• The rubber mat (10) has 5 pins in the corresponding locations.
• Place the rubber mat (10) on top of the iron stand (8) and push each individual pin into its hole. (Fig. 1)
IMPORTANT: Never place the hot iron on the plastic iron stand without the
rubber mat on top of the iron stand.

Filling the Water Tank (8)
A Word on Water
Our steam irons should be used with tap water up to 3 mmol/l alkaline earth ions (check the
degree of hardness of your water with your local water authority) or a mixture of
distilled/demineralized water with tap water.
If your tap water is very hard, you can mix 1:1 distilled / demineralized water with mineral water so
that your steam performance will be good.
Never use water containing additives, battery top-up water from service stations, water from
household softening systems or descaling agents.
Distilled/Demineralized Water:
This should normally be mixed 1:1 with tap water. The use of pure distilled/demineralized water
creates difficulties with steam production and can cause water to escape through the soleplate
(formation of drops).
Note: If water escapes through the soleplate while you are using distilled/demineralized water,
we recommend you use tap water 3 or 4 times.
Water with Additives:
Starch, conditioner, perfume and fabric conditioner should never be added to the water. These
result in residues in the steam chamber which will damage your iron and stain your laundry. For
this reason, no condensed water (water from driers may be used, as this can contain additives
(e.g. conditioner).
Descaling the Iron:
Do not use chemical descaling agents as these can cause damage to the iron and stain your
laundry.
Battery Water From Service Stations:
Do not use battery water as only minute quantities of acid can cause damage tot he iron.
Water From Household Water Softening Systems:
Do not use water from household water softening systems because even though these systems
remove calcium from the water, they add other substances to it. Therefore this water is not
suitable for steam irons.
Filling the Water Tank
1. Push down the water tank lock (8B).
2. Slide out the water tank (8A) from under the iron stand (8). (Fig. 2)
3. Rotate slightly the top of the “Anti-Calc” Cassette and pull it out of the water tank.
4. Fill the water tank up to the “Max” mark, as shown below in fig #2.
8B
Fig. 2
5. Return the water tank (8A) to its place, under the iron stand (8).
Note: Make sure that the water tank (8A) is pushed back to its place and the lock (8B) is
closed. If the water tank (8A) is not in its place, it will not be able to deliver water from
the pump to the iron.
5
How the Water is Pumped to the Iron
1. The water is pumped from the water tank (8A) to the iron (14) through the supply hose (12)
by a built-in water pump.
2. This water pump is activated by pulling on the trigger (3). The water pump pilot light (15)
will go on.
3. The water pump will stay activated as long as your finger pulls the trigger (3) or the trigger
will stay pulled in permanently if the trigger lock (3A) is pushed backwards.
But you will only get steam if the variable steam Control (2) is above Minimum. i.e.
between “Min” and “Max” levels. Please note that you can also achieve continuous
steam in the vertical position.
Ironing Without Steam
• Make sure that the variable steam control (2) is set at “0”.
• Place the iron on the iron stand (8) on top of the rubber mat (10).
• Plug the power cord (11) into the 120 volt wall socket.
IMPORTANT: Never rest the hot iron on the plastic iron stand (8). Always
attach the rubber mat (10) on top of the iron stand (8).
• Select the required temperature setting on the temperature control (1) using the
temperature setting table as a reference (see page 2).
• The temperature pilot light (7) will come on indicating that the iron is heating up.
• When the temperature pilot light (7) turns off, the set temperature has been reached, and
the iron is ready for use.
• The temperature pilot light (7) will go on and off as the thermostat is switching the heating
element on and off to maintain the selected temperature.
6
Ironing With Steam
• Make sure that the Steam Station is unplugged from the power source.
• Set the variable steam control (2) TO “0”. (Fig. 3)
• Fill the water tank (8A) with tap water, following the instructions for filling the water tank.
• Make sure that the iron is resting on top of the rubber mat (10).
IMPORTANT: Do not place the rubber mat (10) on a table or any other
surface which may be damaged by heat.
Fig. 3
Fig. 4
• Plug the power cord (11) into the 120 volt AC electrical outlet.
• Set the temperature control dial (1) to the steam area. (Fig. 4)
••For Moderate Steam
••• For Maximum Steam
• Activate the water pump by pulling on the trigger (3). (Fig. 5)
Note: You can push the trigger lock (3A) backwards to keep the trigger (3)
in a pulled position permanently.
• Make sure that the iron has reached the selected temperature before using steam.

3A
Fig. 5
IMPORTANT: Do not open the steam control (2) or push the burst-of-steam
knob (6) until the temperature pilot light (7) goes off
indicating that the selected temperature has been reached.
If you activate any of the above before the correct
temperature is reached, the iron will drip water.
7
Anti-Drip Function
Steam ironing is only possible at higher temperatures with conventional steam irons. Water may
leak from the soleplate if the temperature selected is too low and therefore this may cause stains.
The anti-drip shut-off functions as follows:
At low temperature, the iron will stop steaming. To avoid the formation of water droplets, when the
drip-stop is activated, you will hear a “click” indicating the flow of water has been stopped. Set the
temperature control (1) up to the correct setting, steam will recommence as soon as the
appropriate temperature has been reached.
Continuous Steam Function
• Make sure there is enough water in the water tank (8A).
• Put the iron on the rubber mat (10) on top of the iron stand (8).
• Set the temperature control (1) at the required setting within the “Steam Area”.
• After the temperature pilot light (7) has turned off and then on again, you can start ironing.
• Adjust the steam control (2) to the required setting.
IMPORTANT: Just before the water tank (8A) is completely empty, there
could be a burst-of-steam and possibly some drops of
water. Make sure your water tank always has some water
inside while ironing with steam.
Continuous steam can be maintained vertically and horizontally. Be careful not to use burst of
steam to often or you will get water spots.
Continuous Vertical Steaming
Continuous vertical steaming can be achieved by switching on the Steam Trigger (3), turning
variable steam (2) on and holding the iron in a vertical position until continuous steam exits.
Please note that you can also have vertical steam burst (6) but the bursts may interrupt the
continuous steam flow. You can also have steam bursts when ironing horizontally on fabric and
keeping continuous steam flowing but:
Warning: Too many bursts of steam will cause water to exit the iron and cause water spots.
8
Burst-Of-Steam Function
• By pushing the “Burst-of-Steam” button (6) a powerful shot of steam is emitted from the
soleplate. (Fig. 6)
• This steam is useful, for example, when removing stubborn creases and can be used
during continuous steaming, but do not use burst of steam too often in a short period or
you will get water spots..
Fig. 6
Note: The Burst-of-Steam function can only be used while ironing with high ironing
temperatures and at an intervals of 5 seconds or you risk water spotting.
9
Steaming in a Vertical Position
• Burst-of-Steam (6) can also be applied when holding the iron in a vertical position. (Fig. 7)
this is useful when removing creases from hanging clothes, curtains, etc… The Burst-ofSteam (6) feature can only be used while ironing at high temperatures at an interval of 5
seconds.
• The iron is also suitable for continuous vertical steam (and horizontal) but only on
maximum temperature.
Fig. 7
Water Spraying
• You can spray at any temperature by pushing on the spray button (4). (Fig 8)
• An electrical pump in the ironing stand (8) supplies the small reservoir (13) with spray water.
• Ensure that there is enough water in the water tank (8A).
• When the internal reservoir (13) is empty, after intensive spraying, pull the steam trigger (3)
for about 1 minute to refill it. Refilling is complete when you see/hear steam coming out
from the steam vents on the iron soleplate.
Note: Filling and refilling of the internal reservoir must be executed at a temperature
setting between •• and MAX. It’s not possible to fill the reservoir at a temperature
setting below ••. (Fig. 9)

Cleaning
• Before cleaning, remove the power cord (11) from the wall outlet and allow the iron to
cool down sufficiently.
• Scale and other deposits can be wiped off the soleplate with a damp cloth and some
non-scratching (fluid) abrasive.
• Keep the soleplate smooth: avoid hard contact with metal objects.
• From time to time clean the inside of the water tank (8A) by filling it with water and
shaking.
Storage
• Remove the power cord (11) from the wall outlet.
• Pour any remaining water out of the water tank (8A).
• Set the steam control (2) to position “0” (= no steam).
• Put the iron on the rubber mat (10) on its stand (8) and let cool down sufficiently before
you store it.
• Regularly check if the power cord (11) is still in a good and safe condition.
How to Replace the “Anti-Calc” Cassette
• For your convenience 2 extra “Anti-Calc” cassettes (16) have been included with your
Steam Station.
• The “Anti-Calc” cassette (16) should be replaced after 9-12 months of usage depending on
the amount of usage and water hardness.
• Rotate and release the head of the cassette (16), then take it out.
• Empty the water from the water tank (8A) and cassette housing.
• Fill the water tank (8A) with water.
• Insert the new cassette and lock it into the water filling hole (9).
• Push steam trigger (3) for about one minute. The new cassette is now filled with water.
• You can resume ironing.
