Operating instructions

Always choose a safe location for the heater, keeping in mind the safety precautions

outlined. Ensure that all packaging has been removed from the unit before use.

Place the heater on a level, hard and non flammable surface.

Plug the power cord into a suitable 220-240V ~ 50Hz wall outlet. The red indicator light

will come on to indicate that there is power to the unit or the unit is plugged in.

Power knob Function:

O Heating Power is not applied to unit

800W + Fan Provides approx 800W heat output with fan boost function

1600W + Fan Provides approx 1600W heat output with fan boost function

2400W + Fan Provides maximum 2400W heat output with fan boost function

Your heater is equipped with three heat settings .To achieve low heat output or 800W

of heat from your heater; turn the power knob to “800W” position . The middle element

will now glow. In this position, the element will glow continuously and for safety reasons

the thermostat can not be adjusted to switch it off.

To achieve medium heat output or 1600W, turn the thermostat control knob to the

maximum (fully clockwise) and turn the power knob to position “1600W”. The rear and

middle elements will glow, the front element will not.

To achieve full heat output or 2400W of heat, turn the power knob to position “2400W

and the thermostat control knob to the maximum. Your heater is now running on full

power. All three element bars will now glow.

Note: Low heat output or 800 watts of heat can also be achieved by turning the power

knob to either position “1600W” and “2400W” and the thermostat control knob to

minimum (fully anticlockwise)

Temperature control

Your heater is also fitted with a thermostat. This is the large rotary knob situated below

the power knob. Your heater will maintain the desired room temperature you select

by turning the knob. By turning the knob clockwise you will maintain a warmer room

temperature. By turning the knob anti-clockwise your heater will maintain a cooler

desired room temperature.

When the desired room temperature is reached, turn the thermostat anticlockwise

until a “click” sound is heard. The thermostat will then automatically switch off the rear

element when the power knob is in position “1600W” and rear and front element s for

position “2400W”. For safety reason, the middle element will glow continuously.

If the room temperature drops below the desired comfort level, the thermostat will

automatically switch the rear element and the front element (for position “III” only) back

on and so forth, maintaining your desired comfort level.

Note: The thermostat will only operate when the heat switch is in position “1600W”

and “2400W”.

FAN BOOST

To heat your room faster your Heater is equipped with a fan boost feature. This increases

the amount and the speed of the air traveling over the elements, therefore heating the

room area faster. This feature will operate when power knob is turned to the desired

heat setting. All the heat settings have this feature.

Note: The “1600W” and “2400W” heat switches will not operate if the thermostat

setting is too low.

Hints when using the heater

A number of factors should be considered when using this heater.

• Maintain a clearance of at least 1m from the unit (during operation) to prevent

contact burns.

• This heater is not suitable to be used on long pile carpets or flokati rugs. Care

should be taken If the heater is used on short pile carpet, it is recommended to use a

thick piece of hardwood under the unit to prevent carpet from scorching.

• The heater should be placed at least 1m away from combustible material such as

paper bins, desks, curtains, long pile carpet (to prevent fire).

Cleaning instruction

The heater requires regular cleaning to ensure trouble free operation:

• Unplug the heater from the mains supply before cleaning.

• Ensure that the heater has been allowed to cool down completely before cleaning.

• Use a damp cloth (not wet) to wipe the exterior of the heater to remove dust and

dirt.

• Before cleaning the reflector, please remove the grill by unscrewing the four screws

at the front. The reflector body can be cleaned with a soft damp cloth, using a small

quantity of neutral detergent, taking care not to splash any water in the heater as

this can cause a short circuit or electric shock. Never use solutions such as benzene,

thinners or polishing agents. In order to get the maximum heat, the reflector must be

kept clean.

• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and fluff from around the grilles.

• Ensure the heater is dry before plugging back into the mains supply.
