How to use your Fan Heater
Caution: This product is intended for heating rooms. Do not use this appliance for any other purpose.
For indoor, domestic use only.
Heater Operation:
• Place the unit on the floor away from any obstructions, pointing towards the area of the room to be heated.
• Rotate the heating selector (3) to setting l or ll as required, and rotate the thermostat dial (1) to maximum.
• Connect the appliance to a suitable electrical supply.
• The “power” & “heating” lamps (2 & 5) will illuminate and warm air will be blown into the room.
• When the temperature of the room is at the desired level, rotate the thermostat dial (1) slowly in an
anticlockwise direction until the appliance just stops working. The “heating” lamp (5) will go out. The
temperature will be maintained at the present level by the thermostat inside the unit.
• During this time, the “power” lamp (2) will remain lit, but the “heating” lamp (5) will cycle on and off with the
Heater.
• When it is no longer necessary to heat the room, rotate the heating selector (3) to setting “0” to switch the
unit off and unplug it from the mains supply.
Note: This appliance must be attended in use.
Fan Operation:

cool.
• Rotate the heating selector (3) to the Fan setting, and rotate the thermostat dial (1) to maximum.
• Connect the appliance to a suitable electrical supply.
• The “power” & “heating” lamps (2 & 5) will illuminate and cool air will be blown into the room.

• This appliance has an oscillation mode. This allows the appliance to partially rotate in 2 directions to warm
or cool a room over a wider area.
• To operate the oscillation mode, press the oscillation switch (4) to the on position. The upper part of the
appliance will rotate to the left or right, changing direction after a short time then begin to move in the
original direction again. This cycle will continue as long as the oscillation button is in the on position and the
appliance is connected to the electrical supply.
• To stop the oscillation, press the oscillation switch (4) to the off position (0).
• Oscillation can be used in both Heater and Fan modes.
Safety Switch
This appliance incorporates a safety switch (6) on the bottom of the unit. If the appliance is knocked over or

it to the floor after carrying will re-set the switch and the product will continue to operate as before.
Safety Fuse
In case of overheating, a cut-out will operate and the appliance will stop working. If the appliance stops
operating, turn the heating selector (3) and oscillation switch (4) to 0, unplug the appliance and allow it to cool
for at least 10 minutes before attempting to use it again.
In extreme conditions, a back-up cut-out will operate. This will not re-set & the appliance will need to be
repaired by a qualified person.
