Do not unplug the appliance by pulling on the cord.
Always unplug your appliance :
- before filling or rinsing the boiler,
- before cleaning your generator,
- after each use.
In order to unscrew the boiler cap, always ensure that :
- either your generator is cold (that is, unplugged for
over 1 hour) ;
- or there is no more pressure in the boiler (the iron does
not produce any steam when the steam control button is
activated).
In all other cases, never attempt to unscrew the boiler cap while
it is in use : the strong steam pressure could cause burns.

GENERATOR
5- USING YOUR STEAM GENERATOR
1. Place the iron’s temperature control dial according to the type
of fabric to be ironed (Figure E).
• INSTALL THE CARRYING HANDLE (DEPENDING ON MODEL)
2. The thermostat light (1) comes on.
1. Position the carrying handle (14) facing the generator (electric
cord reel to the left and steam cord storage clip to the right).
Be careful : the steam generator and the iron are ready to use
when both the iron’s thermostat light (1) and the steam indicator
(9) go out.
2. Insert the carrying handle (14) into the slots provided on the
base of the generator until you hear the “click” indicating that
the handle is in place (Fig. A).
Once the carrying handle (14) is installed, it can no longer be
removed.
If necessary, you can also adjust the steam flow on the base unit
(Fig. F) (depending on model). This takes effect a few minutes later.
3. Before beginning to iron, move the carrying handle (14) behind
the base unit (Fig. B).
Set the steam flow temperature (depending on model)
for the type of fabric to be ironed:

Type of water to use ?
Your steam generator has been designed to operate using untreated tap water.
If your water is very hard, mix it 50 % untreated tap water with 50
% distilled or demineralised water.
To obtain steam, press on the steam control button on the iron
handle (2).
The steam will stop when you release the button.
Types of water not to use ?
Heat concentrates the elements contained in water during evaporation. The types of water listed below may contain organic waste,
mineral or chemical elements that can cause spitting, brown staining or premature wear of the appliance: water from clothes dryers,
scented or softened water, water from refrigerators,
batteries, air conditioners, rain water, boiled, filtered or bottled
water. These types of water should not be used in your
MOULINEX iron. Also only use distilled or demineralised water as
advised above.
It is recommended that you start with fabrics to be ironed at a
low temperature : synthetics (l)
For delicate fabrics (•), press the steam control button (2)
(on the handle of the iron) intermittently to avoid possible
water droplets appearing with the steam.
Recommendations:
- To prime the steam circuit, either before using the iron for the
first time, or if you have not used the steam function for a few
minutes, press the steam control button (2) several times in a
row, holding the iron away from your clothes. This will enable
any cold water to be removed from the steam circuit.
4. SETTING UP YOUR STEAM GENERATOR
1. Connect your generator to an earthed socket.
2. Press the On/Off switch (8).
The steam indicator (9) turns on and the boiler (7) heats up.
When the indicator (9) goes out (after about 8 minutes), steam
is ready .
During ironing the iron’s thermostat light (1) and the steam
indicator (9) will go on and off according to the temperature
control.
Iron temperature control dial setting (3):
- Start with the fabrics to be ironed at a low temperature (•) and
finish with those which need higher temperatures (••• or Max).
- Mixed fibre fabrics : set the ironing temperature to the setting for
the most delicate fabric.
- Woollen garments : press repeatedly on the steam control button
(2) to obtain short bursts of steam, without placing the iron on the
garment itself. This will avoid making the fabric shiny.
BE CAREFUL!
The first time the appliance is used, there may be some fumes
and smell but this is not harmful. They will not affect use and will
disappear rapidly.
Setting the steam flow dial (12 ):
- When ironing thick fabric, increase the steam flow.
- When ironing at low temperature, set the steam flow button at the
low position.

To extend the life of your boiler (7) and to avoid the build up
of scale, it is essential that you rinse out the boiler (7) after every
10 uses. If your water is hard, increase the frequency.
- If you are using starch, it should be sprayed onto the reverse side
of the fabric to be ironed.
In particular, do not use descaling agents for rinsing
out the boiler (7), as they could damage it.
1. Check that the generator is cold and unplugged for more
than 1 hour.
6- FILLING THE BOILER WHILE IN USE
(WHEN THE BOILER IS EMPTY)
2. With a jug, fill the boiler (7) 3/4 full with tap water.
3. Shake the base unit for a few moments and then empty
it completely over your sink (Figure G).
VERY IMPORTANT :
To obtain the best results,
we advise you to repeat this operation.
Before opening your boiler (7), ensure that there is no more steam
left inside by pressing the steam control button (2) located on the
handle of the iron and keep it pressed down until there is no
more steam.
