opening (9b).
•	 Place the appliance on a stable, level surface
(like a table or the floor).

In the sleep mode the temperature of the boiler
goes down in order to reduce power consumption.
Please note, that the temperature of the iron
remains unchanged.

needs to be decalcified after every 15 litres of water
consumption (about 8 complete refills). The LED (3)
is flashing.
