inside of the garment to see if it is suitable.

Cleaning the Boiler
To extend the life of your steam generator and to
prevent any build up of scale, it is essential that
you rinse out the filter (4) and the boiler after
several hours of use. If the water is hard,
increase the frequency.
Do not use descaling agents for rinsing out the
boiler, as they could damage it.
automatic clean warning
Pilot light (12*) will flash indicating that boiler
must be rinsed.
1. Check carefully that the appliance is cold and
unplugged for more than 2 hours, and that the
water tank (1) is empty.
2. Fix the iron to the stand by inserting the tip of
the iron into the front slot and moving the
fixation lever (14) against the heel of the iron.

filter opening.
