The self-clean function removes scale and impurities. We recommend you use the self-clean function once every two weeks. If the water in your area is very hard, the self-clean function should be used more frequently. To use the self function, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure your iron is switched off and unplugged from the mains supply socket.
  2. Set the steam control to the steam position.
  3. Fill your iron with water to the MAX level.
  4. Stand your iron on its hell rest, plug in and switch on at the mains supply.
  5. Set the temperature control to the highest (MAX) setting. Allow your iron to heat up until the temperature indicator light turns off.
  6. Unplug your iron and hold it over a sink with the soleplate facing downwards.
  7. Press and hold the self-clean button. Hot water and steam will be ejected from the holes in the soleplate along with any impurities.
  8. Release the self-clean button after one minute or when the water tank is empty.
  9. Stand your iron on its heel rest, plug it into the mains supply socket and switch on. When the temperature indicator light turns off, iron an old piece of cloth to allow any remaining water to escape.
  10. After use, switch off and unplug your iron from the mains supply and allow it to fully cool. Empty out any remaining water.
