See fig 8 Insert the plug into wall socket and turn on the unit by using your foot to press the ON/OFF foot-step. The unit makes a beep sound. Meanwhile, the power and ‘Turbo’ indicator lights illuminate. The LED displays number ‘4’. The steamer is running and will produce steam in around 35 seconds. The vertical steamer has four steam levels: standby(steam level 1), L(steam level 2), H(steam level 3) and Turbo(steam level 4). You can use buttons or to set the steam level. The number on the LED will change with a short beep accordingly when you push the or button. After operating for 30 hours in total, ‘TIME TO CLEAN’ indicator light illuminates. USE WITH STEAM: 1.

Note: Do not switch the steamer on if there is no water in water tank because it may overheat. It is normal to hear a gurgling sound from the steamer while the heater starts to create steam, or when condensation builds up. If this occurs during operation, just position the steam nozzle upright to allow the excess condensation to drain back into steamer. 4. To steam a garment, place it on a clean and rust-free clothes hanger and use the clothes hanger hook, or hang the garment on the folding rack directly. 5. Grasp the handle of steam nozzle, and place the steam nozzle at the bottom of the garment. Steam will rise along the inside and outside of the fabric, removing wrinkles. Slowly slide the steam nozzle vertically, from the bottom to the top of the garment. See fig 9. 6. Move the steam nozzle from the bottom to the top of the garment, and smooth the fabric with the other hand. 7. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as necessary until the fabric is free of wrinkles. 8. Curtains and draperies can be steamed while still hanging. See fig 10. 9. Heavier fabrics may require repeated steaming. 10. To remove stubborn wrinkles, the fabric brush may also be used. 11.

REMOVING MINERAL BUILD-UP: One common problem with steamer is mineral build-up caused by high mineral levels in many municipal water supplies. Mineral residue inside the internal pipes and heater can cause intermittent steaming or, in some cases, no steaming at all. According to the water quality in different regions, we advise you to remove the mineral build-up after using for 7-15 days. Please take note of the following procedure. fig. 9 fig. 10 fig. 11
9 The procedure below can be used to reduce mineral build-up. If you are unable to use de-mineralized or distilled water, we recommend you follow this procedure. 1. Turn the unit off, and unplug the power cord. Let the appliance cool down completely. 2. Remove the hose and rods from the unit. 3. Drain the water from the water tank and water reservoir. 4. Mix a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water. In most cases, 2 cups of this solution will be sufficient. 5. Slowly pour the water-vinegar solution into the hose connector. 6. If standing the water-vinegar solution becomes visible in the water reservoir’s inlet hole, continue to pour to solution into the hose connector until the water reservoir is about half-full, near the top of hose. 7. Leave standing for 40 minutes. 8. Drain the solution out of the water reservoir by removing the drain cap and allowing the liquid to drain into a sink or tub. 9. Drain the solution out of the hose connector by tilting the unit over a sink or tub and pouring the water out of the hose connector. 10. Pour clean water into the hose connector and water reservoir inlet, and drain. Repeat this step until the vinegar odour dissipates. 11. Reassemble the unit.
