Question

Can I fill the water tank while ironing? What is the correct procedure for filling the water tank?

Answer

No, the water tank may not be filled while ironing. This is because the boiler of the appliance may still be pressurized. Opening the filling cap at this point may lead to the user being scalded by the hot water or steam.

However, it is possible to quickly refill the water tank

1) To do so, set the on/off switch of the product to "I". Press the steam trigger until you no longer hear any steam escaping from the iron. This depressurizes the boiler inside the appliance.

2) Remove the plug from the wall outlet and slowly unscrew the cap of the steam tank by turning it counterclockwise. The pressure in the steam tank is now released.

3) Wait for appliance to cool down before filling it with water (approx. 15–20 minutes). The boiler of the appliance needs to be cooled down sufficiently before refilling. Filling without a cool-down period may lead to hot water splashing from the filling hole as the boiler of appliance is still hot enough to convert water into steam.

4) Fill the tank with water, and screw the cap back onto the tank. You can now switch the iron back on again. The iron will need about 4 to 5 minutes to reheat.
