IMPORTANT GUIDELINES The appliance is designed to work with tap water; however, if the water in your area is very hard, mix the tap water (50%) with distilled and/or demineralised water (50%). Salt concentration in water in certain seaside areas is very high: in such cases it is important to use “demineralised water for irons” available on the market. If in doubt, only demineralised water for steam irons must be used. Do not use diluting agents, scented liquids or descaling agents as these substances can damage the product. Do not use water from dryers, air-conditioners and rain water. The reservoir may contain some water as each product is tested before being put on the market. It is recommended to place a cloth between the iron and the fabric when using the iron for the first time. It is recommended to direct a jet of steam into the air before starting to iron, for any residual condensation to be let out. • The appliance must be unplugged from the socket before filling the reservoir. ATTENTION! The accessories and features vary according to the models. Identify your model by referring to the illustrative drawings at the beginning of the instruction booklet and on the product package. Warning: the plate temperature LED (1) goes on intermittently while ironing, thereby indicating that the selected temperature is maintained. Warning: the super-steam function can only be used at high temperatures. Stop the steam when the plate temperature LED (1) lights up and start ironing when this goes off. Warnings: dampen delicate fabric using the spray function (3) or alternatively, lay a damp cloth between the fabric and the iron. Do not use the spray on silk or synthetics. Cleaning: ATTENTION! Make sure the plug of the appliance (13) is disconnected from the socket and the plate has cooled down completely before cleaning the iron. Any starch deposits or residue on the surface of the plate can be removed with a damp cloth and non-abrasive liquid detergent. Avoid scratching the plate with steel wool or metal objects. The plastic parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth and then wiped with a dry cloth. For further information about troubleshooting please refer to the booklet. DISPOSAL: The product is packaged in recyclable materials. Dispose of it in compliance with the environmental protection standards. PursuanttoArt.26ofItalianLegislativeDecreeno. 49 of 14March2014“Implementation of Directive 2012/19/EU on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)” the crossed bin symbol on the appliance or its packaging indicates that the product must be disposed of separately from other waste at the end of its useful life. The user must therefore take the appliance to an appropriate recycling centre for electrical and electronic equipment. Alternatively, instead of handling the disposal, the appliance can be handed over to the retailer when a new, equivalent appliance is purchased. Retailers of electronic products having a sales area of at least 400 m2 can also be handed electronic products that are to be disposed of measuring less than 25 cm, free of charge and with no obligation to buy. Appropriate separate collection for the subsequent procedure for the decommissioned appliance for recycling, which includes treatment and environmentally friendly disposal helps prevent adverse effects on the environment and health and promotes reusing and/or recycling materials that the appliance consists.
