Keep the iron and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years of age when it is energized or cooling down. • The surfaces of your appliance can reach very high temperatures when functioning, which may cause burns. Do not touch the hot surfaces of the appliance (accessible metal parts and plastic parts adjacent to the metallic parts). • Never leave the appliance unattended when it is connected to the mains. Before storing the appliance, once it is unplugged, please wait until it has cooled down (around 1 hour). • The appliance must not be used if it has been dropped, if it has any visible damage, if it leaks, or if it functions abnormally in any way. Do not attempt to dismantle your appliance: have it examined at an Approved Service Centre to avoid any danger. • The iron should only be used with the base provided (for cordless irons). • Check the electrical power cord for sign of wear or 6 damage prior to use. If the electrical power cord is damaged, it must be replaced at an Approved Service Centre to avoid any danger. • The iron must always be placed on its base and never on its heel (for cordless irons) . • Your iron and its base must be used and placed on a stable surface. When you place the iron on its base, ensure that the surface on which the base is placed is stable. • For your safety, this appliance conforms to all applicable regulations (Low Voltage Directive, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Environment, etc). • Your steam iron is an electrical appliance: it must be used under normal conditions of use. It is designed for domestic use only. • Always plug your steam iron: - into a mains circuit with voltage between 220 V and 240 V, - into an earthed electrical socket. Connecting to the wrong voltage may cause irreparable damage to the appliance and will invalidate your guarantee. If you are using a mains extension lead, ensure that it is correctly rated (16A) with an earth, and is fully extended. • Completely unwind the power cord before plugging into an earthed socket. • The soleplate of your iron can reach extremely high temperatures, and can cause burns: do not touch them. Never touch the electrical power cords with the soleplate of the iron. • Do not leave the power cord close to or in contact with sources of heat or sharp edges. • Your appliance emits steam, which can cause burns. Always handle the iron with care, especially when ironing vertically. Never direct the steam towards people or animals. • Never immerse your steam iron in water or any other liquid. Never place it under a running tap. • The plug must be removed from the socket-outlet before the water tank is filled with water. PLEASE RETAIN THIS INSTRUCTION BOOKLET FOR FUTURE REFERENCE Environment protection first ! Y our appliance contains valuable materials which can be recovered or recycled.

Before using the steam function in your iron for the first time, we recommend that you allow the iron to operate a few moments in a horizontal position without coming into contact with your laundry. Keeping the iron in this position, push the turbo steam button several times. During the first few uses, the appliance may produce smoke, a harmless odour and a light emission of particles. These are simply the engineering residues from the manufac- turing process burning off. These are har- mless and will quickly disappear. 8 Max. PREPARATION Which water should I use? • Your appliance was designed to operate using untreated tap water. However, it is necessary to periodically clean the steam chamber to remove any mineral deposits. • Do not use water with additive, pure demineralised or pure distilled water, water from clothes dryers, scented or softened water, rain water, filtered, bottled or boiled water, water from refrigerators, batteries, air conditioners or rain water as these may damage the iron. These types of water contain organic waste, mineral elements that become concentrated when heated and cause spitting, brown staining, leaking or premature wear on your iron If your water is very hard, mix 50% untreated tap water with 50% distilled water (available in hardware stores). Filling the water tank • Unplug the iron before filling it. • Set the steam control to . • Lift the iron and, holding it at a slight incline, point the soleplate up. • Open the water tank cover. • Fill the water tank to the mark “Max”. • Close the water tank cover. 9 OK USE • Plug in the appliance.

While ironing • Do not lay the iron down on the soleplate; use the heel rest for this purpose. Auto-Off Function (depending on model) • If the iron remains unused for more than 8 minutes on the heel rest or more than 30 seconds laid flat or on its side, the electronic system will cut the power, the iron will stop heating and the temperature indicator light will begin to flash. • To restart the iron, move it gently until the indicator stops flashing. 13 1H IRON STORAGE AND MAINTENANCE Storing your iron • Unplug the iron and wait for the soleplate to completely cool down (approx. 1 hour). • Empty the water tank. • Set the steam control to . • Store the iron on its heel rest. 14 Click 4 h Cleaning the anti-calc valve (once per month) • Unplug your iron and empty the water tank. • To remove the anti-calc valve, open the water tank cover and pull on the valve near the steam control. • Soak the valve for 4 hours in a glass of water with lemon juice. • Rinse the valve under the tap. • Insert the valve in place, pushing it until you hear a click.
