unplugged for more than 2 hours, and that the
water tank (1) is empty.
2.	 Fix the iron to the stand by inserting the tip of
the iron into the front slot and moving the fixation
lever (10) against the heel of the iron.
3.	 Place your appliance over a sink or bucket.
4.	 Lean the appliance on the opposite side of the
filter opening.
5.	 Unscrew the filter (12) and take it out.
6.	 To wash the filter, you may:
a.	Place the filter under the water tap and wash
it up until calc residues are removed. Squeeze
the filter as indicated in the picture F.
