Please Read and Save this Use and Care Book.
When using your iron, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
Use iron only for its intended use.
To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse
the iron in water or other liquids.
The iron should always be turned to the minimum (min)
setting before plugging or unplugging from outlet. Never
yank cord to disconnect from the 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 water or emptying, 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 service person for examination and repair, or
call the appropriate toll-free number on the cover of this
manual. 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 steamthere may be hot water
in the reservoir. Avoid rapid movement of iron to minimize
hot water spillage.

surface on which the stand is placed is stable.
- The iron is not to be used if it has been dropped,
if there are visible signs of damage or if it is
To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high-
wattage appliance on the same circuit.
If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a cord rate
at 15-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.
This product is for household use only.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a

reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
