Electrical Connections

This is a double insulated product manufactured to internationally recognised safety standards (as designated by IEC-335-1).

The supply cord of this appliance cannot be replaced, because special purpose tools are required. If the cord is damaged, the appliance MUST be returned to either the retailer, from whom you made your purchase, or the in-country distributor.

Double insulated products should in no circumstances be connected to earth as this could adversely affect the safety of the product. In keeping with other manufacturer's of domestic appliances, we recommend that when not in use the product should be switched off at the mains supply socket and the plug disconnected.

UK, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man and Channel Isles
PLUGS - Your press should be fitted with a 3-pin BS 1363A 13 amp plug fitted with a 3 amp BS 1362 ASTA approved fuse. If any other plug or connection type is used then there must be a 5 amp fuse in the plug adaptor or distribution board. Fitting a fuse of a higher rating may invalidate your guarantee. If you remove the plug from the mains lead, please destroy as exposed wires will become live if the plug is inserted into a mains socket.

Operating Instructions

Corby have specialised in making trouser presses since the 1930s when the company was founded in Windsor, England. Today Corby sell presses for home and hotel use throughout the world. Although there have been many technical changes since that time we have continued with the tradition of producing high quality British products. Each press is hand assembled and individually tested prior to despatch from our Huddersfield factory.

Fitting Springs

Here is how to fit the springs on your Corby Trouser Press:
  1. Open the press and pull up the black stretcher bar.
  2. You will find the two springs either in the front board or stretcher bar itself.
  3. Use a pair of pliers to twist out the old springs.
  4. Replace them with the new springs, then push the stretcher bar back down.

Tips and Hints

Using your Corby press daily will add to the life and appearance of your trousers.

Your Corby press is safe to use on any material which you would normally iron, however, you should check for any special instructions before pressing.

One of the benefits of your Corby press is that it will not impart a surface shine on the material, something which can occur after repeated ironing. The inherent humidity content of natural and mixed fibres assists the pressing process, however, some man-made fibres such as polyester, resist humidity and may therefore require extra pressing.

On no account should any trousers be dampened before pressing.

Please press one pair of trousers at a time, ensuring that all pockets are emptied of keys, coins or other sharp objects as they could damage the heating pad.

The inside of the front board may be wiped with a dry cloth, but no polish or cleaner should be used on the inner front board or heating pad surface.

You will extend the life of the heating pad if you run the press through 2 cycles with nothing in and the front board open every month.
