Features This steamer has a ABS toughened plastic casing; a double sheeted insulated base, and toughened Plexi-water container and a copper vapour pipe. This makes for a compact and durable unit with a pleasant design. The unit’s components contain as few as possible metal components to avoid rusting, and where possible copper or aluminium is used as these will not rust, therefore preventing foreign matter from entering the water or steam unintentionally. The Steam nozzle is fully adjustable, and independently moveable on the steamer arm. The steamer is equipped with an easy to operate control panel with a minimum of functions. The steamer has thermostatic water level detector. The unit will automatically cut-out, to prevent damage by ‘overheating’ should the unit be left unattended or ‘runs dry’.
Assembly Firstly remove the steamer from its transportation packaging, including the cellophane hygiene bags. Take the plastic water vessel from its packaging and ensure the rubber water seal is fitted to the rim of the jar (or insert into steamer housing). It is advisable to wash the new water vessel thoroughly with clean water only prior to its first use. You should then assemble the steamer ‘roller base’ unit by attaching each ‘leg and wheel’ assembly into the main ‘star’ shaped base component. Once all five arms are fitted, take the chromed steel steamer tube from the polystyrene protective packaging and insert into the main upright tube housing. Next place ‘upright’ tube assembly into the roller base section and then turn upside down. Next; insert the mounting bolt through the washers supplied and tighten the retaining nut until it is as tight as can be, using the supplied spanner. Once the base is assembled, do not adjust the height of the base upright, until after the steamer is fitted into the main tube holder to ensure the pole does not accidently ‘spring out’ and cause injury. Then mount the steamer to the roller base mounting point by aligning the tube of the base unit into the receiving hole of the steamer. Next mount the water vessel into its housing point around the heater element ensuring a snug fit before twisting to tightening the vessel into place. Once all of the previous steps have been done, take the power supply lead and insert it into the power supply socket on the rear of the steamer. Once the steamer is plugged in, then insert the mains plug to the wall power socket. Do not switch on the mains power until the unit has been filled and is ready for use, to prevent any chance of accidental water spillage over the steamer whilst live at the mains.
Application Using the A30 aroma-zone herb & essential oil steamer 1. To fill, you can remove the filler cap and herb case, then pour the distilled water into the water container to the correct level, or you can remove the water vessel and replace after filling.(always ensure the arm is in the upright position during filling, to prevent water entering the arm, as this can cause spitting). 2. The water level should be between the max and min limit displayed side of the jar. 3. For conducting herbal treatments, remove the herb pot from the filler housing and place a small amount of herbs (small pinch) in the metal dish at the bottom of the herb pot. Then replace the herb pot and the filler cap. Special care should be taken to ensure nothing (any herbs) gets into the water supply as any ‘contaminate’ in the water will cause splitting and may result in injury. 4. Switch on the “VAPOR” button. The machine starts to heat and will produce steam vapour in approx 5 mins. Never start the steamer without water, always ensure the water level is within the safe limits marked on the outside of the water vessel. 5. Switch on the ‘OZONE’ button if required --- The green lamp turns on. --- Ozone light operates. --- There is an ozone smell in the vapor along with a distinct increase in atomization. Notes During operation the water level will drop to the ‘minimum limit’. Once reached, the machine will automatically turn off the heater element and prevent use of the steamer whilst it contains no water. Once the water level has been refilled between the required levels (it may take a few seconds for the element temperature to drop enough for the ‘safety cut-out’ to reset), repress the ‘VAPOR’ button on again to proceed with the re-starting of the steamer. Once your treatment is concluded, switch off the VAPOR button and the machine is then in its ‘stand-by’ mode and ready for its next use.
Method 1. Remove the filler cap and herb pot; pour distilled water into the water container. The water level should be filled between the “MAX”& “MIN” level displayed on the jar. To use herbs for treatment, remove the filler cap and take out the herb ‘cage & jar’, place a small amount of herbs into the metal tray in the cage, then replace the herb cage and filler cap. Special care should be taken to ensure nothing (any herbs) gets into the water supply as ‘any contaminate’ in the water will cause splitting and may result in injury. 2. Plug in and switch on mains supply 3. Turn the “vapour” button on. --- “vapour light” illuminates to indicate it is on. --- The heater element starts to work. --- In about approx 5-6 minutes, steam vapor will come out from the arm nozzle. 4. Turn on the “ozone” switch (if desired) ---“ozone light” turns on. --- ozone light illuminates and starts working. --- You will notice an obvious ozone smell and an increase vapor atomization. During the working process, water in the cup will drop as the vapor sprays out constantly. When the water level reaches the low limit, please switch off the “VAPOR” button firstly, and then switch off the power supply. Then, remove the filler cap & herb cage after the vapor stops, using a cloth or towel. Refill with distilled water to the correct level- switch on and resume operation. After the working time is reached, switch off the “steam” and the unit will be in standby ready for its next use.

CAUTION (during use) 1. Should height adjustment be required, you should tightly hold the stand pipe of the unit with one hand, then twist the tightening nut with another hand. Ensure the steamer is switched off during any adjustments, and is not pointing at you or anyone else, so as to prevent injury. 2. The water vessel gets very ‘HOT’ never touch with bare hands during use. 3. When installing/fitting the water container, do not fasten the container too tightly, over tightening may damage the rubber ‘jar seal’ or the locating thread and shorten its lifespan. Over tightening may cause cracking of the water jar, and possible damage to the heater element. 4. The water level should be filled between the “MAX” & “MIN” level displayed on the side of the water vessel during use. Incorrect levels may result in injury. 5. When adding water via the filler cap, always unplug the unit from the mains supply. Although water-tight, care should be taken to avoid spillage and prevent leakage into the steamer housing and possible electrical shorting of the device. 6. If steam or water leakage is visible from any place other than the arm nozzle, switch off the “POWER” button immediately, and disconnect from the mains power supply. Then remove the water container and check to ensure rubber seal is seated properly, and then reinstall it. Also check the main filler cap housing to ensure the seal is correctly fitted. If nothing has improved, please consult your sales agent. 7. When operating the steamer, the nozzle must not be aimed at client’s face until the vapor has begun to spray out continuosly and evenly, keeping a minimum distance of 45 cm from the face. The vapour should be sprayed between the client’s decollete, to the top of the face/hairline. 8. Since the ozone (when used) kills skin bacteria, it is not recommended for use over a prolonged period of time, the usage times should be according to the client skin types (see chart). 9. During continuous use, when water level falls below the ‘low’ limit, the following will occur:-
The steamer should automatically turn off the heater element and will not restart until the element has cooled and the water vessel has been refilled to the prescribed fill level. Then repress the ‘VAPOR’ button on to proceed with normal operation. NEVER attempt to use the steamer with no water in the vessel, as damage may occur to the unit. 10. The steamer/machine should only be used with an earth grounded mains supply.
WARNING Do not use any substance other than distilled water in your steamer unit water vessel, doing so will change the way the boiling process occurs and any ‘contamination’ will cause the steamer unit to spit or spray scalding water. Due care should be taken when using essential oils or herbs, so as not to contaminate the water used for steaming, as injury’s may occur from accidental or negligent contamination during use. 1. NEVER point the vapour jet directly down onto the client’s face, as scalding may occur. 2. NEVER use the steamer unit in humid or unvented environments, such wet rooms or bathrooms etc. To prevent damage to the electrical components of your unit. 3. NEVER use the steamer outside, exposure to the elements will cause damage. 4. NEVER attempt to open the steamer casing/housing yourself as it contains no user serviceable components. Always consult a qualified technician, or for further information contact your sales agent for advice on returns and repairs.
Maintenance It is advisable to clean your steamer at least once a week, preferably to also include descaling of the water heater element. Once the steamer unit is cold the water vessel should be removed and filled with the appropriate descaling/water solution and left to stand overnight. Then remove the water vessel and rinse with clean water to expel any descaling agent residue. Then refill with water and run the steamer through a minimum of two run cycles, to remove any remaining residue from the steamer unit. Then remove the water vessel and rinse as before. Refill with water and you are then ready for use. Failure to remove all descaling residue may result in ‘spitting’ of the steamer. If this occurs, simply repeat the rinse and refill proceedure until the issue is resolved. Although the steamer unit has an automatic low level cut out system. It is advisable to regularly check the water level during operation. By pre-empting the activation of the safety cut out, you will extend both the time between cleaning, and also the longevity of the steamers heater element. Failure of the heater element due to incorrect operation or from lack of cleaning will invalidate your product warranty.
