Iron Safety


When using your flatiron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including

the following:



Use iron only for its intended use.

2. To protect against risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in water or other liquids.

3. The iron should always be turned to OFF before plugging or unplugging from outlet.

Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect.

4. Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting away.

Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.

5. Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water or emptying and when

not in use.

6. Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged.

To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron. Call our toll-free customer

assistance number for information on examination, repair or electrical or mechanical

adjustment. Incorrect reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used.

7. Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or near children. Do not

leave iron unattended while connected or on an ironing board.

8. Bums can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water, or steam. Use caution when you

turn a steam iron upside down - there may be hot water in the reservoir.



To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit

2. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 10-ampere cord should be used. Cords rated

for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot

be pulled or tripped over.
