IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS HEATER.

Please visually inspect all internal and external components before connecting to electric current. If any damage is found, DO NOT USE THIS UNIT and contact Vornado Air LLC at 1-800-234-0604.

When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:

Read all instructions before using this heater.

This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surfaces. Use handles when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes, and curtains at least 3 feet (0.9 m) from the front of the heater and keep them away from the sides and rear.

Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used by or near children or invalids and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.

Always unplug heater when not in use.

Do not operate any heater with a damaged cord or plug or after the heater malfunctions, has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Discard heater, or return to authorized service facility for examination and/or repair.

Do not use outdoors.

This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas and similar indoor locations. Never locate heater where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.

Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or similar coverings. Do not route cord under furniture or appliances. Arrange cord away from traffic area and where it will not be tripped over.

To disconnect heater, turn controls to off, then remove plug from outlet.

Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as this may cause an electric shock or fire, or damage the heater.

To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intakes or exhaust in any manner. Do not use on soft surfaces, like a bed, where openings may become blocked.

A heater has hot and arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it in areas where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.

Use this heater only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.

Always plug heaters directly into a wall outlet/receptacle. Never use with an extension cord or relocatable power tap (outlet/power strip). Operate this heater only in its upright position. Do not operate this heater on an elevated surface such as a shelf or desktop. Use only while placed on the floor.

4 English

This heater is equipped with a thermal safety shut-offsystem, designed to turn off the heater when an internal overheating condition is detected (see How To Use “RESETTING YOUR VORNADO HEATER,” to determine how to check and

reset the heater).

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to 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.

Do not operate this product with any electronic speed-controldevice on the same circuit.

Do not use heater to dry human or animal hair/fur or articles of clothing.

INSTRUCTIONS

HOW TO USE

Using your Vornado Heater is easy. Just follow these simple steps.

1.Position your heater so the vortex beam of warm air is directed across the room unobstructed. Position it in a location that is representative of the room temperature. The unique side-angledair inlets allow the heater to be placed closer to walls than possible with most ordinary heaters (but do not place close to combustibles). Avoid areas of temperature extremes such as cold drafts and heat registers. Please refer to IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS at the beginning of this owner’s guide.

2.Plug the power cord into a standard wall outlet.

3.Set the POWER switch to ON.

4.Set THERMOSTAT to the highest setting. When the room reaches the desired comfort level, turn the THERMOSTAT knob slowly counterclockwise until the heat cycles off (easier to detect when FAN is set to AUTO).

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Your heater has no user serviceable parts. Do not disassemble the unit – it will void your warranty. If service is required, return your heater to Vornado (see Warranty section).

The motor is permanently lubricated and requires no oiling.

Because your heater moves a substantial amount of air, it will require regular cleaning. Be sure to unplug the unit prior to any cleaning activity. Use a vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment to clean any accumulated dust on the front grill and the side air inlets.

During the off-seasonor extended periods ofnon-use,store your heater. Unplug the unit and bundle the cord. Save the plastic bag the heater was shipped in so you can cover the unit and minimize settling dust.

RESETTING YOUR VORNADO HEATER

Your Vornado Heater has a multi-levelsafetyshut-offsystem designed to prevent overheating. Overheating may occur when the inlets or outlet are blocked, a foreign object prevents the blade from turning, or the appliance tips over. If this happens, the safetyshut-offsystem will cut power to the heat element and you will need to manually reset the heater.

1.Set the POWER switch to OFF and unplug the unit.

2.Remove any obstructions.

3.Wait 5 –10minutes, allowing the unit to cool down.

4.Plug in the unit and place in desired position.

5.Set the POWER switch to ON. Your Vornado Heater should now function normally.

If the safety shut-offsystem repeatedly shuts off your heater or if it will not reset after following the above procedure, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISASSEMBLE THE UNIT. Call Vornado Consumer Services Departmenttoll-freeat1-800-234-0604.

OPERATING TIPS

Your heater, like any other 1500 watt electric heater, draws up to 12.5 amps of electric current. If using your heater on HIGH HEAT causes your home’s circuit breaker or fuse to trip, we offer the following suggestions:

Try turning off other electrical appliances that run on the same circuit as your heater.

Run your heater on LOW HEAT.

Have your electrician add an additional circuit to your home’s electrical system.

When the room temperature is higher than the set temperature it is normal and correct to have no heat coming out of the PVH. When the unit is first turned on there is a slight delay before heat will start to be produced.

ALWAYS USE COMMON SENSE WHEN USING THIS AND/OR ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE.

ADVANCED SAFETY FEATURES

TIGHT GRILL SPIRALS

Resists curious fingers.

COOL TOUCH CASE

AUTOMATIC SAFETY SHUT OFF SYSTEM

If airflow becomes blocked, power to the heating element is shut off to prevent overheating.

TIP-OVERPROTECTION

IDEAL 120°F EXIT AIR TEMPERATURE
