Tefal Care for You YT3040 Automatic Garment Care System – 3100W

Introducing Care for You: Tefal’s first all-in-one automatic garment care system. In no time at all, this revolutionary new product smooths, refreshes and dries your clothes, all using the natural power of steam. It’s perfect for freshening up business suits or other hard-to-wash items. That’ll save on dry-cleaning! It’s quiet, too, running at a decibel level well below everyday conversation. And, unlike other clothing care systems available, Care for You features four wheels and a nifty, space-saving retractable design, allowing for easy and discreet storage anywhere in your home. Simply hang up to three items of clothing inside, choose ‘steam’ on the intuitive remote control and, in as little as 10 minutes (just enough time to take a shower), you’ll have crease-free clothes. It’s that easy. Got a bit more time? Leave clothes in for up to 30 minutes to tackle tougher creases. Meanwhile, the 40-minute ‘sanitise’ cycle is great for freshening up any outfit after a day’s wear. The natural power of steam kills 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, and germs* while banishing lingering odours, all without chemicals. No need to risk fragile fabrics in the dryer: just hang them up, select ‘dry’ and allow a flow of cool air to dry them gently, avoiding any damage. It’s quick, drying clothes 5 times faster†, and safe for all kinds of home textiles – from cashmere to cuddly toys. Clever Blue Technology maintains the perfect temperature and humidity level, ensuring great results every time. Care for You will even tell you when your clothes are ready and turn itself off when it’s done. *External laboratory test on cotton, 40-minute sanitise cycle †Compared to natural drying in ambient temperature

Frequent questions
To change the programme, use the remote control and click on one of the 3 central buttons. For example, if you want to activate the Dry mode, click on the Dry button and click on the start/stop button to start the programme.
To put the garments into the Care For You appliance, use the built-in clips. Press firmly on the top of the clips to open them and insert the garment you want.
You can also use the hangers to hang clothes on the central bar and the shelf for cushions or other items.

The tank has a capacity of 1L and is removable.
Pull the tank towards you to fill it with tap water without exceeding the maximum level.
To put it back in place, insert the bottom first and push the tank until you hear a click.
It is advisable to put only 3 garments in the Care For You appliance for optimal dewrinkling.
It is preferable to use tap water but if the water is very hard (hardness higher than 30°f or 17°dH or 21°e), mix 50% tap water and 50% bottled demineralised water.
The two handles for raising/lowering the masts must be pressed down and raised to the maximum until you hear a click and then lock the masts (blue tab).
The masts must be extended to the maximum, otherwise the dewrinkling cabinet will close during operation.
It is preferable to install the appliance in a room with a free space of 20 cm around it.
Do not install it in a bathroom or damp room.
Do not install near a heat source.
  1. Steam mode
    You can adjust the dewrinkling time in 5 minute increments. The longer the cycle, the more your garment will be dewrinkled.
    10 min: light and fast dewrinkling.
    20 min: optimal dewrinkling on most garments.
    30 minutes: for very difficult garments to dewrinkle.
    The use of the straightening clips is recommended for a better dewrinkling result, except for garments that are likely to deform easily (e.g. large knit jumpers, viscose, thin t-shirts, etc.).

  2. Sanitize mode
    20 min: fast purification. Reduces odours.
    40 min: deep purification. Effectively removes impregnated odours, bacteria and germs.
    The use of the straightening clips is not necessary in purification mode.

  3. Gentle dry mode
    Perfect for delicate garments that cannot be tumble dried. You can adjust the cycle time between 10 and 90 minutes.
    30 min: light textiles.
    45 min: cotton and thick textiles.
    60 min: several garments at the same time.
    The use of the straightening clips is not necessary in the drying mode.

Switch off the appliance and unplug it. Wait 1 hour for the appliance to cool down completely.
Lift the shelf, remove the filter and remove any residue with a sponge.
Clean the curtain with a damp cloth or a wrung-out sponge. Never use abrasive cleaning agents or products.
Be careful not to scratch the infrared reception area and the transmitter on the remote control.
The dewrinkling cabinet should be raised as high as possible until you hear the locking click, otherwise the masts will drop back down during use. Check that the small pins are sticking out at the back of the appliance.
The curtain is not closed properly. Check that the curtain is properly clipped to the top of the product.
The selected time and/or the amount of straightening clips is not suitable for the garment(s).
Repeat a 30 minute wrinkle cycle.
If necessary, button the garment completely and remember to put on the straightening clips (except for garments that can be easily deformed).
Check the batteries in your remote control (1.5V AAA batteries).
If the batteries are working, please aim carefully the infrared zone at the bottom of the product.
If the curtain is not completely dry at the end of the programme, you can start a 10-minute drying programme, dry the curtain with a cloth or let the curtain dry naturally.
Straightening clips are not recommended for garments that are likely to deform easily (e.g. large knit jumpers, viscose, thin t-shirts, etc.).
You can wash your garment again. In most cases, this is sufficient to restore its original shape.
In the future, use the Care For You machine without the straightening clips on these garments.

This is normal. After a few minutes, the appliance will automatically switch off to reduce energy consumption. You can start your appliance again using the remote control.
If your clothes are too waterlogged, you can wring them out before putting them in the cabin.
The Care For You appliance should be placed at least 20 cm away from the walls. You can also install the device in a larger, better ventilated and tempered room.
Make sure that the cabin is well closed (curtain clipped to the top of the Care For You).
No, it is normal to have noise and vibration when the steam is activated. The use of steam triggers the functioning of an electric pump.
