OPERATING THE HEATER

Remove the heater from the packaging and place it in the desired location.

Unwind the power cord fully and plug the power supply cord into a convenient electrical outlet.

Do not position where it can be touched by children, especially the very young.

To activate the heater, turn the knob clockwise to either thefan position for cool air, l for heating at low power (1000 W) or ll for heating at maximum power (2000 W).

THERMOSTAT

When the room has reached the desired temperature level, the thermostat will maintain the set temperature level by switching On and Off at intervals. To find the ideal thermostat setting for your own comfort, proceed as follows:

Set the thermostat to the maximum position by turning the thermostat knob clockwise until it stops.

When the desired temperature in the room is reached, slowly turn the thermostat knob anticlockwise until the heater automatically turns off.

The thermostat will now automatically maintain the temperature at the desired level.

ANTI FREEZE SETTING

This heater is equipped with an anti-frost setting. This position can be used to keep the immediate area around the heater free from frost.

Position the heater in the area you want to keep above freezing.

Switch the heater ON by selecting I or II (depending on the room size, possible draught and expected minimum temperature).

Turn the thermostat knob anti-clockwise until it stops. This is the minimum thermostat setting - approx +5°C. The heater will automatically switch On if the temperature in the room drops below this level.

AUTO SAFETY SHUT OFF

This feature will automatically switch off the heater in case of accidental overheating. Operation of the heater can only be resumed when the user has reset the unit.

To reset the heater

1.Turn the control knob to the 0 position

2.Unplug the heater and wait for 5-10 minutes for the unit to cool down.

3.After the 5-10 minutes, plug the unit in again and operate normally.

NOTE: If your heater is fitted with a 13 amp UK plug, the internal plug fuse may have blown and may therefore require changing. (See 'Installation of a Plug')

Remove the plug from the wall socket.

Wait for the heater to cool down sufficiently.
