Please Read and Save this Use and Care Book
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 or unplugging from 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 the iron when storing.
❍ Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when with water or
emptying and when not in use.

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
❍ 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 cord rated at 5-amperes
and 0-volt, or a 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.
