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 liquids.
❍ The iron should always be turned to oFF before plugging or unplugging
from outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect from the 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 iron when storing.
❍ Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water or
emptying, 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 service person for
examination and repair, or call the appropriate toll-free number 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
❍ 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 reservoir. 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 cord rate at
10-ampere for 120-volt, or 6-ampere for 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.
