IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:

WHEN USING ELECTRICAL PRODUCTS, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons:

  • Burns could occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water, or steam. Use care when you turn a steam appliance upside down – there may be hot water in the reservoir.
  • To reduce the risk of contact with hot water emitting from steam vents, check appliance before each use by holding it away from body and operating the steam button.
  • Use appliance only for its intended use.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse the appliance in water or other liquids.
  • Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect.
  • Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let appliance cool completely before putting away. Loop cord loosely around appliance when storing.
  • Always disconnect appliance form electrical outlet when filling with water
    or emptying, and when not in use.
  • Do not operate appliance with a damaged cord, or if the appliance has been dropped or damaged. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble or attempt to repair the appliance, take it to a qualified service person for examination and repair. Incorrect reassembly or repair could cause a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when the appliance is used.
  • Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or near children. Do not leave appliance unattended while connected.
  • To reduce the likelihood of circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.
  • If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 10 ampere rated cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that the cord cannot be pulled or tripped over.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit in 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 to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plugin anyway.

Using the Steamer
Always check fabric labels for recommendations before steaming. Test colorfastness in an inconspicuous spot. Some fabrics can be steamed better from the underside of the material. Heavy fabrics may require repeated steaming. Never steam a garment while it is being worn.

  1. Place the steamer on the floor.
  2. Hang the door hook on the top of a door and place the steam nozzle on the door hook with the steam vents pointing away from the door (Fig 4).
    Hang the door hook
  3. Plug the steamer cord into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
  4. Press the ON/OFF switch to the ON position. The switch will illuminate to indicate the garment steamer is on (Fig 5). Steam will emit in approximately 5-6 minutes from the steam nozzle.
    Press the ON OFF switch to the ON positionNOTE: Keep the steam nozzle on the door hook until steam forms.
  5. Remove the steam nozzle from the door hook with the steam vents pointing away from you. Hang the garment on a hanger and hang on the door hook (Fig 6).
    Lightly touch the garment
  6. Lightly touch the garment with the steam nozzle and steam in an up/down vertical motion starting from the top of the garment to the bottom. Always keep the hose and nozzle elevated above the steamer (Fig 6).
    NOTE: The steamer may make a gurgling sound during operation. This is a normal result of condensation. If this happens, extend the hose up and out so the excess moisture can drain back into the water tank.
  7. When you have finished steaming, place the steam nozzle on the door hook (Fig 4) and turn the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position (Fig 5).
  8. Use caution when handling until the steamer has fully cooled.

Using Attachments
When attaching or changing attachments, be sure the unit is off, unplugged, and completely cool to avoid contact with hot water.

The fabric brush opens the weave of fabrics for better steam penetration.

  • Attach the fabric brush to the steam nozzle by lining up the back of the fabric brush with the steam nozzle slot and gently push into the slot (Fig 7).

Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. Disconnect steamer from electric outlet.
  2. Do not attempt to clean when hot.
  3. Clean exposed parts with a soft, slightly damp cloth. To remove stains, use a mild soap.
  4. Never use detergents, excess water, treated cloths, harsh cleaning agents, or spray cleaners.
  5. Do not immerse the steamer in water.
  6. Do not attempt to disassemble, or open the steamer casing as this will void your warranty.
  7. Follow the Removing Mineral Build-Up procedure every 100 hours of operation to help avoid mineral build-up.
  8. Water mineral content and conditions will vary in different areas. To ensure continued operation of the steamer, never store without cleaning and removing excess water from the water tank.
  9. In areas where the voltage exceeds 120V, it may be necessary to clean your unit more frequently.

Removing Mineral Build-Up

One common problem with steamers is mineral build-up caused by the high mineral content of many municipal water supplies. Mineral residue inside of the internal pipes and heater can cause intermittent steaming or in severe cases, no steaming at all.
The best way to avoid this is to use demineralized or distilled water in the unit. The following procedure can be used to remove mineral build-up. If you are unable to use demineralized or distilled water, we recommend you use this procedure every 100 hours of use to help avoid mineral build-up.

  1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord. Allow the steamer to cool for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the steam hose from the unit.
  3. Fill the water tank with 7 oz. of white vinegar and 13 oz. of water.
  4. Connect the steam hose onto the unit and hang the steam nozzle on the door hook.
  5. Plug the steamer into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
  6. Let the steamer run for 3 minutes with this mixture.
    NOTE: Do NOT steam any fabric with this mixture.
  7. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord.
  8. Allow the steamer to cool for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Remove the steam hose and empty the water tank over the sink.
  10. Rinse the water tank with fresh water and pour out.
  11. Fill the steamer with fresh water and repeat steps 4-9.
  12. Reassemble the steamer and operate normally.
