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.
This appliance has a polarized plug. (One blade is wider than the
other.) To reduce the risk of electrical 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.
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. If provided, 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.
† This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised
to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. Extreme caution
is necessary when any heater is used by or near children or invalids
and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.

circuit that is regularly switched on and off by the utility.
† Do not use this heater in an RV, a boat, or in any application where a
DC/AC converter is converting battery power to AC power.

temperature extremes such as cold drafts and heat registers (refer
to IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS for safe placement).
2. Plug power cord into standard wall outlet.
3. Set Power switch to On.
4. Select Heat setting.

How To Use
Resetting Your Vornado Heater
Your Vornado Heater has a multi-level safety shut-off system
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 safety shut-off system 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 –10 minutes, 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.
Note: If the safety shut-off system 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 Department toll-free at
1-800-234-0604.

Cleaning and Storage
How to Clean
† Your heater has no user serviceable parts. Do not disassemble the
unit. This will void your warranty. If service is required, return your
heater to Vornado (see WARRANTY for instructions).
† The motor is permanently lubricated and requires no oiling.
Because your heater moves a substantial
amount of air, it will need regular cleaning.
To clean follow these simple instructions:
1. Unplug the unit
Note: Do not use gasoline, thinners, solView how to clean your
vents or other chemicals for cleaning.

household vacuum cleaner to vacuum
any accumulated dust off the Front Grill and Side Air Inlets. Wipe
down the entire surface with a soft cloth.
Note: Vacuuming the outside of the heater is recommended on a
bi-weekly basis. You may also blow the heater out with high pressured
air. This can be purchased from your local hardware store.
Storage
During the off-season or after extended periods of non-use, you may
choose to store your heater. To ensure long life of the product, it is
recommended to store your heater by following these instructions:
1. Unplug power cord and bundle loosely.
2. Thoroughly clean your heater (see instructions above).
3. Cover, or place back in retail carton if available. This will prevent
the unit from accumulating dust overtime.
4. Store unit in a cool and dry location.
Operating Tips
† In smaller areas, you might prefer to set the Fan switch to Auto. In the
Auto position, the fan will come on only when the heating element is
on.
† In larger spaces, your Vornado® Heater, will function most effectively
with the Fan switch set to High or Cont. In the High or Cont. position,
the vortex beam of air will gently keep the air circulating in the room
for even, uniform heating.
† Your heater can function as a personal fan for cooling. Set the
Thermostat to Fan Only and set the Fan switch to High or Cont.
† 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 little to no heat coming out of the
VH102 or VH2. 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.
† Do not use more than one heater at a time.
† Never ignore or take lightly the signs of an electrical problem, such as:
† Warm outlet cover plates
† Sparking at outlet when plugging in or during operation
† Light flickering or dimming (indicates a shared circuit or problem)
Investigate the cause of these before continuing to use the heater.
