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 [0] (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 iron 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
❍ 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 5-ampere and 0-volt,
or 7-ampere and 0-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.
This product is for household use 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 should be replaced by
qualified personnel; in Latin America, by an authorized service center.
