-Never pour water directly into reservoir. Pour water in water tank only. -Never drop or insert any object into any opening or hose. -Always keep the hose and nozzle elevated above the water tank. -Steam only in an up and down vertical motion. Never use steamer in a horizontal position or tilt into a backward position, this may result in hot water discharge. -Do not place the steam nozzle directly on any surface or the appliance power cord while it is hot or plugged in. Use the stand provided. -When changing attachments, please be sure, the unit is off and no steam is being released to avoid contact with hot water. -Use caution when changing attachments, as they may contain hot water from condensation.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS -To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.

Assembly : Preparation: • Place the base on the floor and remove the water tank. Install pole in main unit: • Insert pole 1 and 2 according to the diagram to the right, ensuring the marks on the unit and the poles line up. • Press pole firmly into place. Locking the pole : • With the poles inserted lay the base on its side. • Turn the 2 lockbars on the base of the steamer 90° to secure the poles. • Use a coin or similar object to turn the lockbar. • After the poles are locked, pick up the unit and return to its use position. Installing Integrated Hanger : • Take the hanger with the brush hooks facing to the front. • Check for correct orientation with the index marks matching. • Insert both ends of the hanger into the pole connection and press both ends simultaneously into the pole until the hanger properly engages. • If it is required to dismantle the pole from the main unit, tilt the appliance and unlock the pole first. • Then place the appliance back into it’s upright position. Expand both poles to the desired height by unlocking them. Pulling them gently and locking them. WARNING : unlock the four clips while keeping integrated hanger in your hand. • Dismantling of the hanger from the poles by the customer is not foreseen.

Filling the water tank • The steamer is designed to be used with TAP WATER . If the water in your area is hard, Rowenta recommends that you mix half tap water and half distilled water, which reduces the hardness; you may also use bottled spring water or distilled water only. IMPORTANT Never use water that contains additives (starch, perfume, aromatic substances, softener, etc) in the steamer. Additives such as these can affect the properties of the steam and lead to the formation of deposits. • Ensure that the device is unplugged. Remove the water tank from the base of the appliance by pulling it upwards. Unscrew the lid and fill the tank. The tank holds 128 ounces. • After closing the lid, place the water tank into place on the base of the appliance. Tips • We recommend checking the garment care label for manufacturer recommendations. We also recommend testing the garment on an unobtrusive area such as an inner seam. • Read the recommendations for the maintenance of the fabrics on the labels of the clothing to be steamed. • Test the strength of the colour of the fabric on an area of the garment that is not visible (inside of a hem). • Avoid contact between the steam head and silk or velvet. • Certain garments are smoothed more easily on the reverse side. • If you are using your steamer in a position close to the ground, raise the hose frequently in order to avoid the formation of condensation. You may hear a gurgling noise if the hose is obstructed in any way. • Heavy fabrics may need to be steamed longer. • Be careful at all times. *Depending on the model: these accessories are specific to certain models or available as an option. 6 Use Warning: Never steam a garment while it is being worn. The hose and steam head may become hot during use. This is perfectly normal. Be careful and avoid any prolonged contact. • Only operate the steamer on the floor clear of any materials which may obstruct the base of the steamer (flat and horizontal surface). Do not obstruct the orifices on the lower part of the appliance. • Depending on the model the steam amount can be set to the desired level with the variable steam control.* • If necessary, expand the poles to the desired height by unlocking them. Gently pull the hanger with the hand and lock the poles to the desired height with the other hand. Take care not to jam the double poles by pulling them asymetrically. • Plug in the power cord and turn on the power using the foot operated pedal. The power light will illuminate. The steamer is operating. • The unit will produce steam in 60 seconds. • Put garment onto the hanger head. Grasp the steam head with the steam vents pointing away from you. Start steaming by touching material lightly with steaming head and moving in an up/down vertical motion. Beginning at the top of the garment move in a downward direction. Always steam in a vertical position. • During use, the hose may make a gurgling noise. This is normal and caused by condensation. If you hear the gurgling noise, hold the hose up to direct the condensation back into the appliance. Warning: Do not allow the steamer to run dry. Warning: Never use the steamer more than 3 hours. *Depending on the model: these accessories are specific to certain models or available as an option. 7
Crease attachement* • Gently push into place. • Push on the handle to open out the crease attachment . • Place the garment between the crease attachment and steam head. • Release the handle. • Starting at the top of the garment, move the crease attachment in a downwards motion. • Once unit is unplugged and completely cooled down, remove the crease attachment by sliding it off of the steam head. The lint pad is a separate accessory and cannot be attached to the steam head. You can use the lint pad independently from the steamer. Lint pad* The lint pad removes hair, lint and animal fur for a professional finish. • To use the lint pad, slowly brush the clothing with the grain or nap of the fabric. •The pad can be cleaned by brushing it in the opposite direction. We recommend cleaning the pad on an old cloth that can be discarded. After use • After using the steamer, switch the power off (power indicator light will go out) and unplug the appliance. • Hang steam head in an upright position or on hanger head when not in use. • Wrap the cord around the power cord clips for storage.
*Depending on the model: these accessories are specific to certain models or available as an option. 8 • Empty water tank before storage. • Do not carry the steamer by the water tank handle. The unit is designed to transport with the convenience of rolling luggage for easy storage. Warning: Never touch the steam head until it has cooled down completely. Cleaning Clean the main unit with a damp cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must be descaled occasionally. The time between two descaling operations depends on the quality of the water and the frequency with which you use the appliance. The appliance must be descaled at least once a year or after 100 hours of use. To carry out a descaling operation, follow the following steps: 1. Ensure that the appliance has cooled down completely. Unplug the unit and remove the steam hose from main unit. Collapse the telescopic poles. 2. Fill the water tank with fresh water and attach it to the main unit again. 3. Remove the tank from main unit and empty the water from the boiler through the open hose connector into a sink. Scale and other residues will be rinsed out. 4. Repeat Step 2 and 3 several times until the scale has been removed. *Depending on the model: these accessories are specific to certain models or available as an option. 9 Troubleshooting PROBLEMS Possible causes Solutions There is no steam.
