Frequent questions
Choose a board that is height-adjustable to adjust it to your body. It should be steady and robust so that you can place the ironing appliance on it.
The board should be perforated to allow the steam to pass through the fibres of the fabric to soften it and make ironing easier. The ironing board cover should also be suitable to allow the flow of steam through.
• Tap water:
Your appliance has been designed to work with tap water. If your water is very hard, mix 50% tap water with 50% distilled water (available in stores).
In some regions near the sea, the salt content in your water may be high. In this case, use distilled water only.
• Softener:
There are several types of softeners and most of them can be used in your appliance. However, some softeners, and particularly those that use chemical products such as salt, may cause white or brown stains, this is particularly the case with filter jugs. If you experience this sort of problem, we suggest you try using untreated tap water or bottled water.
Remember:
Do not use rain water or water containing additives (such as starch or perfume) or water from clothes dryers, water from refrigerators, air conditioners etc. These additives may affect the properties of the steam, and together with high temperatures can cause deposits to form in the steam chamber which could soil your laundry and lead to premature ageing of the appliance.
This function allows you to iron fabrics in situ or on a hanger.
To do this, set the iron temperature button to the maximum position.
• Leave the item on a hanger and gently pull the fabric with one hand.
• Press the steam control button intermittently and move the iron from top to bottom.
As the steam produced is very hot, it softens the fibres and removes creases.
Note: Never use the vertical steam function on an item being worn by anyone.
To avoid damaging the soleplate, follow this advice:
• Always place your iron on its heel rest or its base (depending on model),
• Avoid ironing over abrasive items (buttons, zip fastenings, etc.),
• Never clean your iron’s soleplate with abrasive or metallic pads.
Shiny marks can appear on some fabrics, especially on dark coloured fabrics. We would advise ironing dark clothes inside out and using the correct temperature.
If ironing mixed-fibre fabrics, set the temperature for the most fragile fibre.
Important: The iron takes longer to cool down than to heat up. We recommend that you start with fabrics to be ironed at a low temperature.
The steam is more or less significant depending on the temperature setting of the iron. We advise you to use steam occasionally when the temperature is set low on the iron, otherwise drops of water could appear on your laundry.
• The Durillium soleplate:
Regularly clean the soleplate with a damp, non metallic washing up pad. For easier, non-corrosive cleaning of your iron's soleplate, use a damp sponge on the soleplate while it is still warm.
If cleaning dirt off is an issue, use the stick which is made specifically for cleaning the Durillium soleplates.
• The stainless soleplate:
Clean the soleplate of your iron when it is cool with a damp cloth or a non-abrasive sponge.
• The autoclean soleplate:
It is recommended that you use a soft damp cloth on the warm soleplate, in order not to damage the surface.
Warning: The use of iron cleaner will cause damage to your soleplate's autoclean coating.
Before cleaning, ensure that the appliance is unplugged and that the soleplate and iron rest plate are cold.
Do not use any detergents or descaling products to clean the soleplate or base unit. Never hold the iron or its base unit under tap water.

Cleaning the base unit:
• Clean the plastic parts from time to time with a soft, slightly damp cloth.

Cleaning the scale collector and self-cleaning the soleplate:
• Refer to the section "How to descale my steam generator?"
It is normal. Your iron generates a lot of steam; this steam is condensing on the board. Some waterdrops could appeared underneath the ironing board and fall on the flooring.
• You are using chemical descaling products or additives in the water. You should never put these products in the water tank. If this is the case, contact an Approved Service Centre.
• Your washing has not been rinsed sufficiently or you are ironing a new item of clothing before washing it. Ensure that you have rinsed your clothes thoroughly in order to to remove soap deposits or chemicals from new garments which could stick to the iron.
• Your iron is too hot, see our recommendations on temperature control settings in your product manual.
• You are using starch. Only spray starch on the reverse of the fabric to be ironed.
Some laundry starches and synthetic fibres may stick to the surface of the iron. Please clean the Iron's surface.
The internal parts may make metallic noises with the change in temperature. There is nothing wrong with it.
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.
If the temperature of your iron is adjustable (depending on the model), use steam occasionally when the temperature is set low on the iron.
The temperature is set too low on your iron, it does not allow you to have steam.
Yes, this is quite normal. The water flow allows the cleaning of the soleplate interior.
The self-cleaning operation of the soleplate has to be performed. Refer to the chapter "Maintenance and cleaning", "How to descale my steam generator?".
Yes, this is quite normal. The self-cleaning operation causes the electric pump to operate.
No. The two cables are separately insulated; they are protected and rigorously checked. However, if you notice that the cable is damaged, have it repaired by an approved repair centre.
This system prevents the soleplate from clogging. Its active coating eliminates fibres and impurities that often become stuck to the plate and end up reducing its glide.
