Anti-drip system
With the anti-drip system, you can perfectly iron even the most delicate
Always iron these fabrics at low temperatures. The plate may cool down to
the point where no more steam comes out, but rather drops of boiling
water that can leave marks or stains. In these cases, the Anti-drip system
automatically activates to prevent vaporization, so that you can iron the
most delicate fabrics without risk of spoiling or staining them.

General instructions
When using the iron for the first time, you may notice a slight emission of
smoke and hear some sounds made by the expanding plastics. This is quite
normal and it stops after a short time. We also recommend passing the iron
over an ordinary cloth before using it for the first time.

Soft the laundry to be ironed according to the international symbols on the
garment label, or if this is missing, according to the type of fabric.

Remove the plug from the wall socker before filling the re-servoir.



this steam iron is to a large extent resistant to hard water (up to 15 DH).

Although to hand water may be used,it is advisable to use distilled,
de-mineralised or decalcified water.Should you be unsure about the
hardness of the relevant local authority department.
2. Push the locking button for the water re-servoir and remove it by pulling it
out from the front.
3. Open the over of the water Filler door
4. Fill the empty water re-servoir. Fill to the indicated “MAX” level only.
5. Close the water Filler door.

Fit the water re-servoir to the iron from the front and make sure that it

locked properly into place.

Selecting the temperature.
1. Put the iron in a vertical position.
2. Put the plug in the socket.
3. Adjust the thermostat knob for temperature regulation (13) according
to the international symbol on the garment label. The plate temperature
control light (6)indicates that the iron is heating up. Wait until the
indicator lamp goes off before ironing.
Warning: during ironing, the indicator lamp (12) comes on at intervals,
indicating that the selected temperature is maintained. If you lower the
thermostat temperature after ironing at a high temperature, do not start
ironing until the plate temperature control light comes on again.

Selecting the steam.
The quantity of steam is regulated by the variable steam control (4).
1. Move the variable steam control to a position between minimum and
maximum depending on the quantity of steam required and the
temperature selected.
Warning: the iron gives off steam continuously only if you hold the iron
horizontally. You can stop the continuous steam by placing the iron in a
vertical position or by moving the variable steam control to “0”. As
indicated on the thermostat knob for temperature regulation (13) and in
the initial table, you can only use steam at the highest temperatures. If the selected
temperature is too low, water may drip onto the plate.

Selecting Shot-steam and steam when ironing vertically.
Press the shot-steam button (6) to generate a powerful burst of steam that
can penetrate the fabrics and smooth the most difficult and tough creases.
Wait for a few seconds before pressing again.
By pressing the shot-steam button at intervals you can also iron vertically
(curtains, hung garments, etc.).
