IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

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

WARNING – TO REDUCE THE RISK OF BURNS, ELECTROCUTION, FIRE, OR INJURY TO PERSONS:

  • Read all instructions before using
  • 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 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 pull 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 from 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. T o reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble or attempt to repair the appliance.
  • Return to HoMedics Service Center 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.
  • 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.
  • Never drop or insert any object into any opening or hose.
  • Do not use outdoors or operate where aerosol (spray) products are being used or where oxygen is being administered.
  • Surfaces of this appliance may be hot when in use. Do not let eyes or bare skin touch heated surfaces.
  • Do not place the steam nozzle directly on any surface or on the appliance power cord while it is hot or plugged in. Use the stand provided.
  • Unplug this appliance before filling or emptying. Do not overfill.
  • Always keep the hose and nozzle elevated above the water container.
  • To reduce the likelihood of circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.
  • Do not use an extension cord to operate the appliance. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 15 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.
  • Never pour water directly into reservoir. Pour water in water tank only.
  • When changing attachments, please be sure the unit is off and no steam is being released to avoid contact with hot water.
  • Use caution when changing attachments as they may contain hot water from condensation. Ensure the attachments are dry or cooled off to avoid contact
    with hot water.

Grounding Instructions

This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for the electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

DANGER
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product – if it will not fit the outlet, you may temporarily use an adapter (such as the one shown in Figure B) until you have a proper outlet (such as the one shown in Figure C) installed by a qualified electrician.

Perfect Steam PRO Commercial Garment Steamer - Grounded Outlet Fig C

This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A. A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated in Figure B may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in Figure Dif a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet Figure Ccan be installed by a qualified electrician. The tab for grounding screw Figure B extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. See Figures D and E.

  3. Store in a cool, dry place.
    NOTE: Do not wrap the power cord around the unit.

Removing Mineral Buildup

One common problem with steamers is mineral buildup caused by the high mineral content in 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 procedure below can be used to clear mineral buildup. If you are unable to use demineralized or distilled water we recommend you use this procedure monthly to help avoid mineral buildup.

  1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord.
  2. Unscrew and remove the hose from the hose connector on the top of the unit.
  3. Remove the pole from the unit.
  4. Remove the water tank from the main unit and drain any water in the unit.
  5. Make a mixture of 50% vinegar and 50% water. In most cases, 1 cup of this
    mixture will be sufficient.
  6. Slowly pour the water-vinegar mixture into the hose connector.
    a. If the internal piping is only partially blocked by mineral buildup, the water-vinegar mixture will soon start flowing out of the water intake hole. If this happens proceed to step 8.
    b. If the internal piping is completely blocked, continue to pour the mixture into the hose connector till full.
  7. Pour the water-vinegar mixture into the water intake hole until full.
  8. Let stand for 40 minutes.
  9. Drain the water using the drain plug.
  10. Pour clean water through the hose base and water intake hole until the vinegar smell dissipates.
  11. Reassemble the unit and operate normally.

If the procedure above does not return the unit to normal operation, the unit may need servicing.

NOTE:

  1. Water mineral content and conditions will vary in different areas. To insure continued operation of the steamer, never store without cleaning and removing excess water from the resevoir and water container.
  2. If the reset light comes on with water in the tank you probably need to declarify (clean) the unit.
  3. In areas where the voltage exceeds 120V, it may be necessary to clean your unit more frequently.
