Important recommendations

Safety recommendations

Please read these instructions carefully before first use: This product has been designed for domestic use only. Any
commercial use, inappropriate use or failure to comply with the instructions, the manufacturer accepts no
responsibility and the guarantee does not apply.

For your safety, this appliance conforms to the applicable standards and regulations (Low Voltage,
Electromagnetic Compatibility, Environmental Directives, as applicable…).

Your steam generator is an electrical appliance. It should be used under normal conditions. It is intended for
domestic use only.

Your generator is fitted with 2 safety systems:
- a pressure release valve which, in the event of a malfunction, releases any excess steam,
- a thermal fuse to prevent the appliance from overheating.

Always plug your steam generator into:
- an electrical installation with voltage between 220V and 240V. 
- an earthed socket.
Connecting to the wrong voltage may cause irreparable damage to the appliance and will invalidate your
If you are using a mains extension lead, ensure that it is correctly rated (10A) with an earth, and is fully extended.

Completely unwind the electric flex before plugging it into an earthed electric socket.

If the electric power flex or the steam flex is damaged, it must imperatively be replaced by an Approved Service
Centre to avoid any danger.

Do not unplug the appliance by pulling on the cord. Always unplug your appliance:
- before filling or rinsing the boiler,
- before cleaning your generator,
- after each use.

The appliance must be used and placed on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface. When you place the iron on the
iron rest, make sure that the surface on which you place it is stable.

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

Never leave the appliance unattended:
- when it is connected to the mains,
- until it has cooled down (around 1 hour).

The soleplate and generator iron-rest can become very hot and cause burns: never touch these parts. Never touch
the electric cords with the soleplate of the iron.

Your appliance gives off steam which can cause burns. Handle your iron carefully, particularly when using the
vertical function. Never direct the steam towards persons or animals.

Before emptying the boiler, always wait until the generator is cold and make sure that it has been unplugged for
more than 2 hours before unscrewing the boiler stopper.

Be careful: if the boiler cap is dropped or severely knocked, have it replaced by an Approved Service Centre, as it
may be damaged.

While rinsing out the boiler, never fill it directly under the tap.

If you lose or damage the boiler stopper, have it replaced in an Approved Service Centre.

Never immerse your steam generator in water or any other liquid. Never hold it under the water tap.

The appliance must not be used if it has fallen to the floor, shows evidence of damage, leaks or fails to function
correctly. Never dismantle your appliance. To avoid any danger, have it inspected in an approved service centre.

Do not iron over garment zips as this could damage the soleplate, care should also be taken when moving the iron
close to a garment zip to ensure the zip does not catch the soleplate. 

Environment protection first !

Your appliance contains valuable materials which can be recovered or recycled.

Leave it at a local civic waste disposal centre.

Locking system for retaining the iron on the base 
- Lock-system

Your steam generator is equipped with a retaining clip which locks the iron on its casing
for easier transport and storage - 


Locking - 


Unlocking - 


To carry your steam generator by the iron handle:

- place the iron on the iron rest of the generator and raise the retaining hoop over the
iron until it locks into place (audible click) - 


- grasp the handle of the iron to carry your steam generator - 




What water to use ?

Due to the powerful steam output, a mesh type ironing board must be used to allow any
excess steam to escape and to avoid steam venting sideways.

Your iron has been designed to operate using untreated tap water.

Types of water not to use: Heat concentrates the elements contained in water during
evaporation. The types of water listed below may contain organic waster, mineral or
chemical elements that can cause spitting, brown staining or premature wear of the
appliance: water from clothes dryers, scented or softened water, water from
refrigerators, batteries, air conditioners, rain water, boiled, filtered or bottled water.
These types of water should NOT be used in your TEFAL steam generator. Also only
use distilled or demineralised water as advised right.

Filling the boiler

Place your steam generator on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface.

Check that your appliance is unplugged and cold.

Unscrew the boiler cap.

Using a water jug, fill with maximum 1 litre of water. Fill the boiler, taking care that the
water does not spill over - 


. If this occurs, remove the excess water.

Replace the boiler cap, screwing on firmly, but not over tight.

Using the Easycord system 

Your iron is equipped with an extension cord system to prevent the cord from dragging
over the laundry and creasing it again when ironing.

Take the steam cord out of its housing and unwind it completely.

Press the Eject button and the Easycord system extends automatically.

When the cord outlet tips, the Easycord system extends automatically without you
having to press the Eject button - 


If your water is very hard
(check with your local water
authority) it is possible to
mix tap water with store-
bought distilled or
demineralised water in the
following proportions: 50%
untreated tap water, 50%
distilled or demineralised

Always use the Easycord
system for enhanced
comfort of use.

Rinsing the boiler 

(once a month)

Be careful: To extend the life of your boiler and to avoid the build-up of scale, it is
essential that you rinse out the boiler at least after every 10 uses (approximately once
a month).

Check that the generator is cold and unplugged for more than 2 hours.

Using a jug, fill the boiler 3/4 full with untreated tap water - 



Shake the base unit for a few moments and then empty it completely over your sink



To obtain the best results, we advise you to repeat this operation.
