please visit or contact the Sunbeam Consumer Service Line.
Ensure the above safety precautions are understood.
Sunbeam’s Total Safety System
Adjustable thermostat
Thermal back-up fuse
Your Sunbeam Smartheat™ oil filled radiator
features an adjustable thermostat which
detects the temperature in the vicinity of the
heater and switches the heating element off
when a preset temperature is reached.
In addition to this automatic cut-off, your
heater contains a thermal back-up fuse to
provide additional back-up protection. If the
heater is in an overheat situation, the back-up
fuse will open, stopping the power flow to
the heating element. This fuse cannot be
reset, so in the event that the back-up fuse is
activated, the heater will need to be replaced.
Safety auto shutoff
If the appliance overheats for any reason,
a switch automatically activates to turn the
heater off. For added safety, you must remove
the plug from the wall and wait till the heater
cools down before the heater can be switched
back on.
Features Of Your Smartheat™ Oil

Convection vents

Heat setting operation

you to select the most comfortable room temperature.
Thermostat control operation
The adjustable thermostat allows you to select the
desired heat level, and automatically switches the
heater on and off to maintain it.
Discreet cord storage compartment
The discreet cord storage compartment allows you
to keep the power cord out of harms way when the
heater is not in use.
