When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
❑ Read all instructions before using.
❑ 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
❑ 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.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

POLARIZED PLUG (120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the
risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
Warning : This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent
removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt
to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should
be done only by authorized service personnel.
Note: If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to
avoid a hazard.
