English

Our products are engineered to meet the highest standards of quality, functionality and design. We hope you enjoy your new Braun steam iron. Notice: Remove the label, if any, from the sole plate before first use.

Important Safeguards

Before using the iron, read the use instructions completely. Keep the use instructions during the entire life of the iron.

Make sure your voltage corresponds to the voltage printed on the iron. Connect the iron to alternating current only.

Always unplug the iron before filling with water. Always pull the plug, not the cord. The cord should never come in contact with the hot objects or the sole plate.

Never immerse the iron in water or other liquids.

During ironing pauses, always place the iron upright on its heel rest. Unplug it when leaving the room, even if only for a short time.

Keep the iron away from children. Electric irons combine high temperatures and hot steam that could lead to burns.

Never iron or dampen clothes while wearing them.

Check the cord regularly for possible damage.

If the appliance (including cord) shows any defect, stop using it and take it to a Braun Service Centre for repair.

Faulty or unqualified repair work many cause accidents or injury to the user.

Braun electric appliances meet applicable safety standards.

A Description

1Water tank opening

2Spray nozzle

3Power shot button

4Spray button

5Steam regulator

6Steam plus button (model 3240 only)

7Pilot light

8Temperature selector

B Before starting off

This iron is designed for tap water. If you have extremely hard water, we recommend to use a mixtur of 50 % tap water and 50 % distilled water. Fill the water tank to «max» marking.

Never use distilled water exclusively. Do not add any additives (e.g. starch).

Keep the iron in the upright position and connect it to the mains. Select the temperature according to the ironing guide on the heel rest of the iron or on the label in your garments.

The pilot light goes off when the desired temperature is reached (after approx.

1 ó min.).

C Ironing

Vario steam

You can increase and reduce the quantity of steam by turning the steam regulator. The steam regulator and the temperature selector have to be setwithin the red range.

Notice: While ironing, do not turn the steam regulator beyond the red range. For power shot and vario plus steam, the temperature selector must be set within the continuous red range.

These functions can even be activated when dry ironing.

We recommend a medium steam setting for all normal ironing. Only when ironing linen, thick cotton or similar fabrics we recommend the maximum steam setting.

Vario plus (model 3240 only)

Press the steam plus button (6) for max. 3 seconds, but not more often than 4 times per minute.

Power shot

Press the power shot button (3) in intervals of at least 5 seconds.

Spray function

Press the spray button (4).

Dry ironing

Set the steam regulator (5) on position «0» (= steam off).

Notice: Prior to ironing, press the power shot button 3 to 4 times to activate them. This function can be used for steaming hanging clothes.

D After ironing

Unplug the iron. To prolong the life of the iron, empty the water tank. Store the cool iron in a dry place always standing on its heel rest.

E Maintenance and cleaning

To clean the sole plate, use steel wool. Never use a scouring pad, vinegar or other chemicals.

F Cleaning the anticalc valve

The anticalc valve on the steam regulator has to be decalcified regularly (e.g. whenever steam development is insufficient).

For this, the water tank has to be empty.

Removing the steam regulator with the anticalc valve

Turn the steam regulator clockwise to the double arrow at the end of the anticalc section and it will lift. Pull it out vertically. Do not touch the anticalc valve at its lower end. Immerse the anticalc valve in vinegar (not vinegar essence) or lemon juice for minimum 30 minutes. Brush off remaining residues and rinse under running water (fig. F 1-5).

Re-insertingthe steam regulator

To re-insertthe steam regulator follow fig. 6 and 7.

Notice: The iron must not be used without the steam regulator.

G Decalcifying/anticalc system

In order to clean the steam chamber from residues, decalcify it as shown in fig.

G 1-11.

Caution: Hot water and steam will come out from the sole plate when the steam regulator is turned clockwise into the anticalc area.

Wait for the sole plate to cool down, then clean it as described above.

Then refill the tank with water, heat up the iron and press the power shot button 4 times to rinse the iron before ironing (G 12-13).

Do not use commercial decalcifiers, they may damage the iron.
