When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including
the following:
❑ Use iron only for its intended use.
❑ To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in water
or other liquid.
❑ The iron should always be turned off (refer to "How to Use" section) before
plugging into or unplugging from an outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect from
outlet; instead grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
❑ Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting
away. Loop cord loosely around cord wrap when storing.
❑ Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with or emptying
of water, and when not in use.
❑ Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped
or damaged. To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron,
take it to a qualified serviceman for examination and repair. Or, call the appropriate
toll-free number listed on the cover of this manual. Incorrect reassembly can cause
a risk of electric shock when the iron is used.
❑ Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or near
children. Do not leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing
board. Always position iron carefully to prevent it from falling if ironing board
is accidentally moved or cord is pulled. Always use heel rest.
❑ Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water, or steam. Use
caution when you turn a steam iron upside down or use the surge of steam —
there may be hot water in the water tank. Avoid rapid movement of iron to
minimize hot water spillage.


❑ To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance
on the same circuit.
❑ If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 10-ampere and 120-volt,
or 6-ampere and 220-volt cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage
may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be
pulled or tripped over.
