How to Use

This appliance is for household use only.


Remove any labels, stickers or tags attached to the body or soleplate of the iron.

For warranty verification, do not remove line cord sticker.

Note: Use ordinary tap water for ironing. Do not use water processed through a home softening system.

For optimum performance, let the iron stand until the indicator light goes out (approximately 60 to 90 seconds) before beginning to iron.


  1. Tilt the iron and using a clean measuring cup, pour water into opening until water reaches the max level mark on the water tank. Do not overfill.
  2. Plug in the iron. The power indicator light comes on.

Tip: If unsure of a garment's fiber, test a small area (on an inside seam or hem) before ironing.


  1. Move the selector to the desired steam level (A).
  2. Turn the fabric-select dial to appropriate setting (between 4 and 6) for your fabric (B). See fabric guide on the heel rest and read garment's label to help you determine fabric type. The temperature ready light glows until it reaches the appropriate temperature. It then cycles on and off during ironing.
  3. When finished ironing, turn the fabric-select dial to lowest heat setting, move the selector to min and unplug the iron.


  1. Make sure selector is set to min. You may want to empty the water (see "Emptying Water Tank After Ironing").
  2. Turn the fabric-select dial to the appropriate setting for your fabric (B). See fabric guide on the heel rest and read garment's label to help you determine fabric type.


  • Horizontal
    1. With the water tank filled to the max mark, turn the fabric-select dial to at least setting 4 and let iron stand on its heel rest about 60 minutes.
    2. To remove tough wrinkles, pump the button a few times at 5-second intervals for a concentrated blast of steam.
  • Vertical
    1. Hang the garment to be steamed on a clothes hanger. (Curtains or drapes can be steamed once they are hung.)
    2. Move the selector to max.
    3. Hold the iron close to, but not touching, the fabric.
    4. Pull the fabric tight in your free hand and pump the button as you move the iron over the fabric (C).


You can use spray at any setting. Check that the water tank is filled with water. Press the button. If spray is weak, pump the button a few times.


  1. Turn the fabric-select dial to min. Unplug the iron and allow it to cool.
  2. Empty the water by holding the iron over a sink with the tip pointing down. Water will empty out of water-fill opening (D).

Care and Cleaning

This product contains no user serviceable parts. Refer service to qualified service personnel.


  1. Make sure iron is unplugged and has cooled completely. Wipe the soleplate and outer surfaces with a soft cloth dampened with water and a mild household detergent. Never use abrasives, heavy-duty cleansers, vinegar or scouring pads that may scratch or discolor the iron.
  2. After cleaning, iron with steam over an old cloth to remove any residue from the steam vents.


  1. Unplug the iron and allow it to cool.
  2. Check that the selector is set to min.
  3. Wrap the cord loosely around the heel rest and tuck in the plug to secure it.
  4. Store vertically on its heel rest to prevent water leaking from the soleplate.


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. 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.
  • 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.
