Before continuing any further with the installion of the heater please fill in the
details on the last page of this guide.
Important: Before continuing with the installation of this heater please ensure
that you have completed the information on the last page of this guide.
Please read this section thoroughly before positioning the heater.
Do I need any tools?
Depending upon the chosen method of installation you may need the following tools:  For Spacer frame or screw fixed installations you will need A Pozidrive / Phillips /
cross head screwdriver. This should have a number 2 size tip.

If wire fixing and drilling into brickwork you will need a power drill (preferably with
hammer action) and appropriate size drill bit for the wall plugs supplied.
Where and how can you fit the heater?
Q
A
Can the heater be installed into a ‘hole in the wall’ (elevated opening)?
The heater is suitable for ‘hole in the wall’ installations; these being installations
where the heater is recessed into a builders opening. This is not referring to the
heater being hung on the wall. It is important that the electrical socket is
accessible and located adjacent to, but not above or behind the heater.
The Nano fascia has been designed for traditional installations where the base of
the fascia sits on a hearth or similar surface. For this reason we recommend that a
plinth be fitted under the heater.
Q
Do you want to fit the heater into a surround or fireplace opening without
the spacer frame?
The minimum rebate / depth required is 145mm.

Q
A
Q
A
Do you want to fit the heater against a flat wall with the base of the heater on
a hearth or similar surface?
You will need to purchase the optional spacer frame kit (kit number 0584081). This
spacer when added to the one supplied with the heater enables the heater to be
flat wall fixed. The depth of the combined spacer frames is 145mm.
Do you want to wall mount the heater against a flat wall?
You will need to purchase the Optional spacer frame kit (kit number 0584081)
and an Elevated installation kit (kit number 0584091). The optional spacer when
added to the one supplied with the heater covers the full depth of the heater rear
(145mm).
General notes to read before fitting
your heater.
There should be at least 50mm clearance between
the top of the fascia and anything such as a shelf,
fireplace surround or mantel etc. This will allow the
fascia to be lifted off or removed during servicing.
To check the shelf clearance gently place the
fascia against the surface to which it is to be fixed
and measure the distance from the top of the
fascia.
Figure 1. Fitting the cable clamp
If fitting the heater onto a reflective or shiny
surface such as a hearth we recommend that
this surface does not extend further than 300mm
from the fixing plane (wall). Reflective or shiny
surfaces that project further than 300mm may
reflect an image of the internal lamp.
Fitting the cable clamp.
If the mains cable is to be routed to the left hand
side of the heater there is a cable clamp supplied
with the heater to hold the cable in place. This
prevents the cable being trapped under the
heater during installation. Fit the cable clamp as
in figure 1.
Checking the lamp.
When handling the lamp avoid touching the glass
with bare fingers as this will reduce the life of the
lamp.
Figure 2. Checking the lamp
Before continuing with the installation of the

heater it is important to check that the lamp
has not become loose in transit. The lamp is
located into a cradle on the rear of the access
panel. Open the access panel by unscrewing
the locking screw in an anticlockwise
direction. Ensure that the lamp is located
firmly in the lamp holder (See figure 2).
It is important that the lamp is horizontal and
not angled in any way (See figure 3). When
closing the access panel be careful not to trap
wiring between the access panel and heater
body. Screw the locking screw in a clockwise
direction to secure the access panel.

The Nano fascia has been designed for traditional installations where the base of
the fascia sits on a hearth or similar surface. For this reason we do not
recommend the Nano model for wall mounting.
If fitting the heater into a fireplace or surround opening, try the heater in the opening to
ensure that it will fit.
If fitting the heater onto a decorative hearth surface such as marble or tile it is
advisable to protect the hearth surface. Do not drag the heater as the surface finish
may be damaged.
Method A - Securing with screws.
Note - If fixing to marble it is recommended that
Method B - ‘Securing with wire’ is used. Drilling
marble without the correct tools and experience may
result in the marble cracking.
1. Place the heater into the fireplace or surround
opening. Make sure that the heater is in the middle of
the surround or fireplace.
2. There are two slotted holes in the top of the heater
and four holes in the side flanges (See figure 5). We
recommend the use of two upper holes and two lower
holes. Mark through the required holes so that their
position is clear when the heater is removed.
3. Remove the heater.
4. Drill an appropriate size hole in each of the marked

Method B - Securing with wire.
This method of securing is recommended where the wall / brickwork is in poor
condition or where marble back panels / surrounds are used.
Although this section deals with fireplace openings without a spacer, this method of
securing the heater can also be used with the spacer frame supplied with the heater
(See point 7 and figure 9 of method C). It can also be used with the optional spacer
frame (See point 7 and figure 10 of method D).
1. The fixing kit supplied with the heater
includes a steel wire and eyescrew. These can
be used to secure the heater to the back of a
surround / fireplace opening.
2. Mark the eyescrew position on the centre
line at the back of the fireplace opening and at
a height of 565-575mm (See figure 6).
3. Drill an appropriate size hole in the marked
position.
4. Insert a wall plug into the drilled hole.
5. Screw the eyescrew into the wall plug.
6. Position the heater in front of the fireplace
opening.

pull the steel wire on the right hand side to gather up the excess until the heater is
secure. Thread the wire through the remaining small hole to lock the wire and heater in
place (See point 4 - figure 7).
Method C - Securing with the Spacer Frame supplied with the heater.
The spacer frame is for use in installations where the chimney recess or rebate in the
surround / mantle is not deep enough to take the full depth of the heater. The minimum
rebate / depth required is 71mm.
For your safety the frame and heater must be securely fixed to the rear wall.
The rear of the spacer has two screw location
slots in the top flange. These should be to the
rear when fitting.
1. Position the spacer frame against the wall.
Ensure that the spacer frame is central to the
fireplace.
2. The top rear flange of the spacer frame has
two screw locations. Mark the positions of the
two screw locations on the rear wall (See figure

INSTALLER AND OWNER GUIDE
Method E - Wall mounting with the optional spacer frame kit (0584081)
and Elevated Installation kit supplied in kit (0584091).
The Optional Spacer Frame and Elevated Installation kit are required where a wall
mounted installation is required.
(The Nano fascia has been designed for traditional installations where the base of the
fascia sits on a hearth or similar surface. For this reason we do not recommend the
Nano model for wall mounting).
Fitting a wall mounting bracket to the wall.
When wall mounting your heater we
recommend that the heater be mounted
no more than 240mm from the floor. To
achieve this, the hole centres in the wall
mounting bracket must be no more than
700mm from the floor (See figure 11).
Mounting the heater above this may
affect the visual appearance of the fuel
effect.
If fitting to a conventional brick wall then
use the outer slotted holes in the
bracket. If fitting to a plasterboard wall
that has a wooden frame behind it then
use all four fixing holes in the bracket.
This is required to spread the load.
If the wall plugs supplied are not
satisfactory, purpose made plasterboard Figure 11
fixings can be purchased from DIY
outlets.
1. Mark the positions of the hanging bracket holes on the wall. We recommend the use
of a spirit level to ensure that the bracket is level.

7. CLEANING AND MAINTAINING THE HEATER
Important Safety.
Before undertaking maintenance or replacing the lamp always disconnect the heater
from the electricity supply by removing the 3 pin plug and allowing the heater to cool.
How do I Clean my heater?
The heater and plastic parts need only to be wiped clean with a dry soft cloth; do not
use polishes or abrasive materials. This is especially important when cleaning the
effects screen.
I have a problem with my heater!
1. My heater is on but there is no light / low light.
This is possibly a lamp failure. Replace the lamp as in the following section.
The lamp fitted to this heater is a 50Watt 12Volt GY 6.35 halogen lamp. A replacement
lamp is supplied with the heater. Due to the indeterminate life span and ease of
replacement, they are specifically excluded from the guarantee.
When handling the lamp avoid touching the glass with bare fingers as this will reduce
the life of the lamp.
Caution: Ensure the lamp is cool before attempting to remove it from the heater.
To replace the lamp.
The lamp access cover is on the rear of the
heater. Access can be gained as below.

Remove the fascia by gently pulling the
lower edges and lifting clear of the heater.

If the heater is secured with screws then
remove the screws. For heaters secured
with wire it will be necessary to loosen and
remove the wire at one side. Do this by
pushing the wire loop towards the outer hole
and pulling on the wire where it passes
through an outer hole in the heater. It may
be necessary to use a flat ended screw
driver or similar tool behind the wire loop
(See figure 15).
Figure 15. To loosen the wire

Remove the heater.

At the rear top of the heater there is a hinged access panel. Unscrew and remove
the locking screw (See figure 16).

The lamp is located into a cradle on the rear of the access panel. Open the
access panel and remove the lamp. Do this by gently gripping the bulb and pulling
clear of the ceramic connector (See figure 16).

INSTALLER AND OWNER GUIDE


Replace the lamp and close the access
panel. When handling the lamp avoid
touching the glass with bare fingers as
this will reduce the life of the lamp. Be
careful not to trap wiring between the
access panel and heater body.
It is important when buying replacement
lamps to ensure that the filament is in
the correct orientation to the location
pins (See figure 17
Secure the heater in place using the
chosen method (See ‘Fitting the heater’
section of the guide).
2. My heater is switched on but there is no
light or heat.
The first thing to do is check the wall socket.
To do this plug in a known working appliance.
If the appliance you have plugged in works
then there is a good chance that the problem Figure 16
lies with the 13 Amp fuse in the heater plug. If
either fuse or socket is suspected, have them checked by an
electrician.
3. My heater is on but there is no heat.
A cut out device is fitted to the heater to prevent damage due
to over heating. If it operates due to an obstruction in the
airflow, the heater must be turned off and allowed to cool for 15
minutes and the obstruction removed before restarting.
4. I have a problem that is different to those in the
previous examples 1- 3.
