Steam boost function (specific types only)
A powerful boost of steam helps to remove very stubborn creases.
The steam boost function only works at temperature settings between
3 and MAX.
Press and release the steam boost button (Fig. 9).
Vertical shot of steam (specific types only)
You can also use the steam boost function when you hold the iron in
vertical position. This is useful for removing creases from hanging clothes,
curtains etc.
Hold the iron in vertical position and press and release the steam
boost button (Fig. 10).
Never direct the steam at people.
Automatic shut-off function (specific types only)
The automatic shut-off function automatically switches off the iron if it has
not been moved for a while.
The automatic shut-off light flashes to indicate that the iron has been
switched off by the automatic shut-off function (Fig. 11).
To let the iron heat up again:
Pick up the iron or move it slightly.
The automatic shut-off light stops flashing.
If the temperature of the soleplate has dropped below the set ironing
temperature, the temperature light goes on.
If the temperature light goes on after you have moved the iron,
wait for it to go out before you start ironing.
Note: If the temperature light does not go on after you move the iron, the
soleplate still has the right temperature and the iron is ready for use.
Cleaning and maintenance
Set the steam control to position O, remove the plug from the wall
socket and let the iron cool down.
Pour any remaining water out of the water tank.
Wipe flakes and any other deposits off the soleplate with a damp
cloth and a non-abrasive (liquid) cleaning agent.
To keep the soleplate smooth, avoid hard contact with metal objects.
Never use a scouring pad, vinegar or other chemicals to clean the
Clean the upper part of the iron with a damp cloth.
Regularly rinse the water tank with water. Empty the water tank after
you have rinsed it (Fig. 12).
Double-Active Calc System (specific types only)
Note: See chapter 'General description' for the type numbers that are equipped
with the Double-Active Calc System.
The Double-Active Calc System consists of an Anti-Calc tablet inside the
water tank combined with the Calc-Clean function.
The Anti-Calc tablet prevents scale from clogging the steam vents. The
tablet is constantly active and does not need to be replaced (Fig. 13).
The Calc-Clean function removes scale particles from the iron.
Calc-Clean function
Use the Calc-Clean function once every two weeks. If the water in your
area is very hard (i.e. when flakes come out of the soleplate during ironing),
use the Calc-Clean function more frequently.
Make sure the appliance is unplugged.
Set the steam control to position O.
Fill the water tank to the maximum level.
Do not pour vinegar or other descaling agents into the water tank.
Set the temperature dial to MAX (Fig. 14).
Put the mains plug in an earthed wall socket.
Unplug the iron when the temperature light goes out.
Hold the iron over the sink and turn the steam control to the
Calc-Clean position x. (Fig. 15)
Pull the steam control slightly upwards and gently shake the iron until
all water in the tank has been used up (Fig. 16).
Steam and boiling water come out of the soleplate. Scale (if any)
is flushed out.
After you have used the Calc-Clean function, press down the steam
control while you turn it to position O. (Fig. 17)
Note: Repeat the Calc-Clean process if the water that comes out of the iron still
contains scale particles.
After the Calc-Clean process
Put the plug in the wall socket and let the iron heat up to let the
soleplate dry.
Unplug the iron when the temperature light goes out.
Move the iron gently over a piece of used cloth to remove any water
stains that may have formed on the soleplate.
Let the iron cool down before you store it.
Cleaning the steam control needle
Pull the steam control out of the appliance. (Fig. 18)
Use vinegar to remove scale, if any, from the needle (Fig. 19).
Do not bend or damage the steam control needle.
Reinsert the steam control. Place the point of the needle exactly in
the centre of the hole and fit the small projection on the side of the
needle into the slot (Fig. 20).
Set the steam control to position O.
Set the steam control to position O and remove the plug from the
wall socket.
Wind the mains cord round the cord storage facility (Fig. 21).
Specific types only: put the iron in the heat-resistant storage cover
and fasten the cover with the Velcro strips (Fig. 22).
Note: If you use the heat-resistant soleplate cover, you do not have to let the
iron cool down first. If you want to store the iron without the soleplate cover,
let it cool down first.
Do not throw away the appliance with the normal household waste
at the end of its life, but hand it in at an official collection point for
recycling. By doing this, you help to preserve the environment (Fig. 23).
