IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using your iron, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

1.Use iron only for its intended use.

2.To protect against a risk of electric shock do not immerse the iron in water or other liquids.

3.The iron's temperature selector should always be turned to the «min» position before plugging or unplugging from outlet. Never yank cord to disconnect from outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to disconnect.

4.Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces. Let iron cool completely before putting away. Loop cord loosely around iron when storing it.

5.Always disconnect iron from electrical outlet when filling with water or emptying and when not in use.

6.Do not operate iron with a damaged cord or if the iron has been dropped or damaged. To avoid risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the iron; take it to an authorized service center for examination and repair. Unauthorized repair may cause a risk of electric shock, injury or property damage.

7.Close supervision is necessary for any appliance being used by or near children. Do not leave the iron

unattended while plugged in or on an ironing board.

8.Burns can occur from touching hot metal parts, hot water or steam. Use caution when you turn a steam iron upside down, as there may be hot water in the reservoir.

9.This product is intended for household use only.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS

1.This is a 1500 watt appliance.

To avoid a circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.

2.If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 12.5-amperecord must be used.

Cords rated for less amperage may overheat.

Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it cannot be pulled or tripped over.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

3

Braun products are engineered to meet the highest standards of quality, functionality and design. We hope you enjoy your new Braun FreeStyle iron.

Notice: Remove any labels affixed to the soleplate 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 (AC) only.

Always unplug the iron and make sure the steam button (3) is pushed down into the lowered position (steam off) before filling the tank with water. To unplug the iron always pull by the plug, not the cord. The cord should never come in contact with hot objects or with the hot soleplate.

Never immerse the iron in water or other liquids.

During pauses in ironing always place the iron upright on the heel rest (8). Unplug it when leaving the room, even if only for a short time.

Never pull out the steam button (3) during ironing.

Keep the iron away from children.

Electric irons combine high temperatures and hot steam that could lead to burns.

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 center for repair.

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

B Before getting started

This iron is designed to be used with tap water. If you have extremely hard water we recommend using a mixture of 50% tap water and 50% distilled water. Fill the water tank to the «max» marking. Never use distilled water exclusively. Do not add any additives (e.g. starch).

Keep the iron in the upright position and plug it into the outlet. Select the desired temperature according to the ironing guide on the heel rest (8) or the label in your garment.

The temperature pilot light (7) goes off when the desired temperature is reached (after approximately 1 minute).

C Ironing

1Steam on/off

For steam ironing, the temperature selector (6) must be set within the red range.

Press the steam button (3) to start the steam mode.

press press

steam off

(upright position)

(lowered position)

With the steam button (3) in the upright position, turn the steam regulator (3a) to adjust the steam quantity.

Pre-ConditioningSteam

(available on models SI 6285 and SI 6245) Steam comes out of the channels on the upper part of the soleplate around the front of the iron. This preconditions the fabric by «pre-steaming»,thus making ironing easier.

Use caution as steam comes out laterally.

2Power shot

Prior to use, press the power shot button

(5) 3 to 4 times to activate it. Press the power shot button (5) in intervals of at least 5 seconds.

Power shot (5) can be activated when dry ironing (see point 4 below). However, the temperature selector (6) must be set in the range between «•••» and «max». The power shot function can also be used in the vertical position for steaming hanging garments or curtains.

3Spray function

Press the spray button (4).

4Dry ironing

Turn the steam mode off by pressing the steam button (3) down so that it catches in the lowered position.

5Automatic Shut-Off

(available on models SI 6285, SI 6245 and SI 6225)

Important: the auto shut-offfeature ismercury-free.The autoshut-offmechanism causes a slight rattling noise during ironing. This is normal and in no case indicates a fault of the iron. The«auto-off»pilot light (7) will flash when the automaticshut-offis activated. This happens when the iron has rested:

horizontally on the soleplate for about25 seconds or

vertically on the heel rest (8) for about12.5 minutes or

when the iron has been lying on its side for about25 seconds.

To turn on the iron again, just move it. When the «auto-off»pilot light (7) stops flashing the electrical power is on again.

D After ironing

Unplug the iron and press the steam on/off button (3) down so that it catches in the lowered position (steam off).

To prolong the life of the iron empty the water tank after each use.

Always allow the iron to cool down before storing it in the upright position in a dry place.

E Maintenance and cleaning

To clean the soleplate use steel wool. Then wipe the soleplate clean with a cloth.Never use a scouring pad, vinegar or other chemicals. To clean the soft material on the handle and the knobs, wipe with soapy water.

F Cleaning the «anti-calc»valve

The iron's «anti-calc»valve is a long wand that is located beneath the steam button

(3). This valve needs to be decalcified regularly (e.g., when the steam development is insufficient).

Proceed as follows:

1)Unplug the iron and empty the water tank.

2)Press the steam button (3) so that it is in the upright position.

3)Remove the steam button (3) carefully (some water may leak from the soleplate).

4)Be careful not to touch the «anti-calc»valve.

5)Immerse the valve in white vinegar or lemon juice until the limescale becomes soft.

6)Using a brush with non-metallicbristles, brush until all openings on the valve are clean.

7)Rinse the valve under running water.

8)Insert the valve back into the iron and press the steam button (3) down until it clicks into place.

9)Press the steam button (3) to check the steam on/off function.

Note: never use the iron unless the steam button (3) is securely in place.

G Decalcifying/ «anti-calc»system

When limescale particles come out of the steam vents or when the steam development is insufficient even after cleaning the «anti-calc»valve, you should clean the steam chamber as follows:

1)Make sure the steam button (3) is in the lowered position (steam off).

2)–3)Fill the water tank, plug in the iron and select the «•••» temperature setting.

4)–5)Wait until the pilot light (7) turns off, then unplug the iron from the outlet.

6)–7)Holding the iron over a sink, press the steam button (3) so it is in the upright position, carefully pull it up, turn it and let it rest in that position.

Caution: When the steam button (3) is pulled up, hot water and steam will be released from the soleplate.

8)Turn the steam button (3) back into place by pushing it down until it clicks into place.

9)–10)Fill the water tank, plug the iron in and select the «•••» temperature setting.

11)–13)When the pilot light (7) goes off, press the power shot button (5) 4 times to rinse the iron. Disconnect the iron and wait for the soleplate to cool off, then clean it as described above in section E.

Note: the iron must never be used without the steam button (3).
