When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
Read all instructions before using.
Use iron only for its intended use.
To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse the iron in water
or other liquid.
The iron should always be turned off (refer to “How to Use” section) before
plugging into or unplugging from an outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect
from outlet; instead grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before
putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing.
Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with or emptying
of water and when not in use.
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, take it to a qualified serviceman for examination and repair. Incorrect
reassembly can cause a risk of electric shock when the iron is used.
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.
Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water, or steam.
Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down or use the surge
of steam — there may be hot water in the water tank. Avoid rapid
movement of iron to minimize hot water spillage.
To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance
on the same circuit.
If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 15-ampere and 120-volt,
or 7-ampere and 220-volt 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.
POLARIZED PLUG (120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To
reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug
in any way.
Warning: This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to
prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric
shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-
serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service
Note: If the power supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by
qualified personnel or in Latin America by an authorized service center.
