IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
WHEN USING ELECTRICAL PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY WHEN CHILDREN ARE
PRESENT, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED,
INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
DANGER-TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK:
• This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot
surface. If provided, always use handles when moving this heater. Keep combustible
materials such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes and curtains at least 3
feet 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 the heater when not in use.
• Do not operate the heater with a damaged cord or plug, if the heater malfunctions,
has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return heater to authorized service
facility for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.

Caution: All

Personnel
only.
• This heater is not intended for use in bathroom, laundry areas and
similar moist 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 the like. Arrange cord away from traffic areas
where it can be tripped over.
CAUTION: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). To reduce the risk of shock, this plug is intended to fit only
one way in a polarized outlet. 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. To do so could result in
an electric shock hazard.
• This heater draws 12.5 amps during operation. To prevent
overloading a circuit, do not plug the heater into a circuit that
already has other appliances working.
• CAUTION: It is normal for the plug to feel warm to the touch; however,
a loose fit between the AC outlet (receptacle) and plug may cause
overheating and distortion of the plug. Contact a qualified electrician
to replace loose or worn outlet.
• To disconnect the heater, first turn controls to the OFF position,
then remove plug from outlet. Never pull by the cord.
• 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 surface, like a bed, where openings
may become blocked.
• A heater has hot and arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it
in the areas where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or
stored.
3
• 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 relocate power tap (outlet/power strip).
CAUTION: Avoid the use of an extension cord because the extension cord may overheat
and cause a risk of fire. However, if you have to use an extension cord, the cord should be
No.14 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1875 watts.
• The output of this heater may vary and its temperature may become intense enough
to burn exposed skin. Use of this heater is not recommended for persons with
reduced sensitivity to heat or an inability to react to avoid burns.
• Always unplug the heater from the electrical outlet immediately after using and before
cleaning.
• DO NOT place the heater near a bed because objects such as pillows or blankets
can fall off the bed and be ignited by the heater.
• DO NOT reach for an appliance that has fallen into water. Unplug it immediately.
• DO NOT use while bathing or in the shower.
• DO NOT place or store appliance where it can fall or be pulled into a tub or sink.
• DO NOT place in or drop into water or other liquid.
• NEVER use pins or other metallic fasteners with this appliance.
• Keep dry - DO NOT operate in a wet or moist condition.

WARNING ­– TO REDUCE THE RISK OF BURNS, ELECTRIC SHOCK, FIRE OR
INJURY TO PERSONS:
• An appliance should never be left unattended when plugged in. Unplug from
outlet when not in use and before putting on or taking off parts or attachments.
• Extreme caution is necessary when this appliance is used by or near children,
invalids or disabled persons.
• Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do
not use attachments not recommended by The Sharper Image; specifically any
attachments not provided with the unit.
• NEVER operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not
working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged, or dropped into water.
Return it to SI Products Service Center for examination and repair.
• Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• NEVER drop or insert any object into any opening.
• DO NOT operate where aerosol (spray) products are being used or where
oxygen is being administered.
• DO NOT operate under a blanket or pillow. Excessive heating can occur and
cause fire, electrocution or injury to persons.
• DO NOT carry this appliance by the power cord or use cord as handle.
• To disconnect, turn all controls to the “off” position, then remove plug from
outlet.
• This appliance is designed for personal, non-professional use only.
• DO NOT use outdoors.
• Check your heater cord and plug connections.
a) Faulty wall outlet connections or loose plugs can cause the outlet or plug to overheat. Be sure the plug fits tight in the outlet.
b) Heaters draw more current than small appliances, overheating of the outlet
may occur even if it has not occurred with the use of other appliances.
c) During use check frequency to determine if your plug outlet or faceplate is
HOT! If so, discontinue use of the heater and have a qualified electrician
check and/or replace the faulty outlet(s).
