1. Make sure the unit is unplugged. 2. Grasp the water tank at the top, with fingers on the ridges. 3. Slide the reservoir down, away from the steamer body. 4. Open the inlet cover. Fill the reservoir with distilled water (which can be found in grocery stores). We recommend that you use distilled water only as this will prevent mineral deposits in the boiler that can reduce performance or clog the water system. 5. Close the inlet cover. Return the reservoir to its place by sliding it up, making sure that it snaps in place and is secure.OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Fill water reservoir with cool, distilled water. 2. If you are using an attachment, place it on the steamer. 3. Plug the unit into the electrical outlet. 4. Pointing the steam jets away from you, and anyone else in the room, press the ON/OFF button on. When ready light illuminates, press the switch to LOW or HI to emit steam. Always have steam facing away from you or anyone in the room. 5. When first using the device, test on an old cloth, as there may be sediment left from the manufacturing process or transportation. 6. To stop the flow of steam, press steam button to the OFF position. 7. Press ON/OFF button to turn unit off. Unplug the device when it is not in use. STEAMING TIPS FOR DE-WRINKLING 1. First, test unit on an inconspicuous area of the item to be steamed, using the regular Steam setting to ensure fabric can tolerate the effects of steam. If there is no evidence of damage, you can proceed to use the steamer on that item. 2. Hang your garment or fabric. 3. Press the ON/OFF button to turn the steamer on. 4. Use the steam button to select setting, LOW or HI. 5. Hold fabric taut with one hand and hold steamer with the other hand. 6. Pass the steam jets just above the fabric, where the wrinkles are. It may take a few passes to remove the wrinkles completely. 7. After use, turn steamer off. Allow unit to cool, and unplug from outlet. Empty any remaining water from the tank prior to storing to avoid leakage. 8. CAUTION: When hanging garment on a door while steaming, be careful not to damage the door with steam. 9. When steaming, always keep the unit in motion. Do not continuously hold steamer over an area or touch steamer jets directly to fabric for more than a few seconds as this can cause damage, including shrinkage, melting, or color shift on certain types of material. 10. In the case of heavier, durable fabrics such as wool coats or bedding, slower passes with the steamer may be necessary to achieve desired results. As always, start by testing on an inconspicuous area of the item to be steamed using the LOW steam setting to ensure fabric can tolerate the effects of steam, and adjust your technique as needed to obtain the results desired. USING ATTACHMENTS With the garment steamer off and cool, insert the tab on the creaser attachment into the underside of the garment steamer head. The silicone strip and steam bonnet attachments snap into the top portion of the creaser attachment. To apply one of these attachments, simply line up the pins with the holes on the creaser attachment and push in until you hear a snap. CAUTION: Use extreme care when changing the attachments after the unit has been in use, as the steam head will continue to be hot. TO KILL BEDBUGS OR DUST MITES Steam is a contact killer that can kill dust mites, bedbugs and eggs. It must hit bugs directly. When steaming to kill bedbugs, areas to concentrate on are seams, edges, and folds in the fabric. Direct the steamer nozzle about half of an inch from the fabric to be steamed. Hold the steamer head at a minor angle up off of the surface. Do not hold flush against the surface. Move at about an inch per second and steam the entire area that is infested. Check the surface behind the steamed section after steaming. The surface should be warm to the touch. If it's cool, you're moving too fast. Move the steamer head from top to bottom of the object you're steaming. (Steam rises!) Be cautious of surfaces that you can't steam, such as finishes on furniture, leather, certain paints. Test on an inconspicuous area before steaming the entire object. NOTE: You may have to repeat the process for best results.

Never operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been dropped or damaged, or dropped into water. Do not attempt to repair the appliance. Incorrect reassembly or repair could cause a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when the appliance is used. Return the appliance to an authorized service center for examination and repair. 7. Do not allow cord to contact heated surfaces. Do not pull or twist cord. Let appliance cool completely before putting away. 8. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. 9. Never drop or insert any object into any opening. 10. Do not use outdoors or operate where aerosol (spray) products are being used or where oxygen is being administered. 11. We recommend you do not use an extension cord to operate this appliance. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, a 15 ampere rated cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that the cord cannot be pulled or tripped over. 12. Surfaces of this appliance are hot when in use. Do not let heated surfaces touch eyes or skin. 13. Do not place the steam nozzle directly on any surface or on the appliance power cord while it is hot or plugged in. 14.

Always position steamer with head away from you and any other person when turning on. 18. Do not hold hand in front of steam. 19. To reduce likelihood of circuit overload, do not operate another high-wattage appliance on the same circuit. 20. Use caution when installing or removing an attachment as it may contain hot water from condensation. Ensure that the unit is off, attachment is dry or cooled off to avoid contact with hot water. 21. Never steam clothes you, or someone else, are wearing. 22. When emitting steam, this appliance may cause burns if it is used too close to the skin or eyes, or if it is used incorrectly. To reduce the risk of contact with hot water emitting from the steam vents, test appliance before use by holding it away from the body.
