15 / 45 EN Steam Iron Station / User Manual 3.1 Initial use 1. Remove all packaging materials, labels and protective foil and dispose of them according to the applicable legal regulations. 2. Clean the outer parts of the appliance as described in the section “Cleaning and care“. 3. Place the appliance on an even, stable, dry and non-slip surface. 4. Place the iron onto the storage base (10). C During first use, a slight dour may occur as a result of manufacturing residues being burnt off. This is harmless and will only last for a short time. Ensure for sufficient ventilation. A WARNING: Never im- merse the steam iron- ing station in water or any other liquid. Do not fill in the steam ironing station with vinegar, descaling agents, starch, perfume or ironing aids. C When ironing for the first time, use an old, clean cloth so that manufacturing residues can be removed from the soleplate (9). 3.2 Saving energy This product has an ECO steam generation setting. By using this setting, you can save 40% energy in comparison to the maximum steam generation setting with normal usage (Tested according to EN 60311+A1 clause 11). Many linen types can be ironed well with ECO steam setting. To save energy: • • You should use the appropriate heat setting. If you don’t know the appropriate heat setting, start from the lowest heat setting and increase it until linen can be ironed well. • • Your product can generate enough steam in ECO mode to iron many linen types. We suggest you to start using your product with ECO setting. If you don’t know the appropriate steam setting, start from the lowest steam setting and increase it until linen can be ironed well. • • For better ironing, try using the steam with pulse actions. 3 Preparation
16 / 45 EN Steam Iron Station / User Manual 3.3 Tips for ironing • • Prior to ironing, always check the garment label to ensure the correct temperature is set on the iron. • • Since the iron heats up much quicker than it cools down, synthetic textiles, silk or similar fabrics should be ironed using lower temperature settings first. • • If the garment is made of combined types of fabric, always begin with the lowest temperature setting first. • • Silk and other textiles that tend to shine should be ironed inside out. Velvet and other types of fabric that shine should be ironed with very little pressure and only in one direction. Always keep moving the iron while ironing. • • Do not use the steam function when ironing colored silk. This could cause stains. • • Garments made of 100% pure wool can be ironed using steam. Set the temperature control dial (12) preferably to the MAX setting and lay a dry towel between the garment and the iron. • • Ironing wool garments can cause them to ‘shine’. It is therefore recommended to iron such garments inside out. A WARNING: Never iron on metal parts, such as zippers, rivets, or metal buttons as they could damage the soleplate (9). Always iron around these metal parts. 3.4 Storage If you will not be using the steam iron for a long period of time, please store it away carefully. • • Make sure that the iron is disconnected from the power supply and completely dry when storing it away. • • Empty the water tank (8). • • Open the water drainage screw (23) and let the remaining water drain out of the iron. Screw in the water drainage screw (23) again and tighten it. • • To store away the steam ironing station, wind the steam hose (2) and the power cable (7) around the cable storage holder (6) and secure them with the clamping bracket. • • Please try to store the steam iron and the attachments in their original packaging. • • Store it in a cool, dry place. • • Make sure the appliance is always kept out of the reach of children. 3 Preparation
