1. APPLICATION
1.1. System design
Kickspace fan convectors must always be fitted to a two pipe pumped circulation central heating system.
For optimum performance, fan convectors require a continuous flow of hot water through the high efficiency heat
exchanger. If used in conjunction with radiators it is preferable to provide a separate circuit for the fan convectors to
ensure an adequate flow of water in accordance with the technical data given in section 10 (page 7).
Fig. 1 shows an example of a system combining fan convectors and radiators. The pump runs continuously while the
system is in operation.
The fan convectors may be controlled by individual room thermostats, and the radiators may be controlled by one or
more zone valves via room thermostats, or by individual thermostatic radiator valves.
Systems with thermostatic control which switches the circulating pump will affect the fan convector function as the flow
of water will be interrupted.
If a separate circuit cannot be provided for the Kickspace, its position should be chosen, and the system should be
balanced, to ensure sufficient water flow is provided. Low water flow will be indicated by the unit switching off by its
internal water temperature thermostat when the fan and pump are running together.
1.2. Selection
When deciding on the model size, it is preferable to select the model on the basis of maintaining the calculated heat
losses of the room when operating at Low fan speed at 60°C temperature difference. This will enable the Boost fan
speed to be used for more rapid warming from cold in extreme conditions.
The mean water temperature should not be below 60°C for satisfactory operation.
1.3. Location
Kickspace units are intended for installation in the cavity beneath kitchen cupboards on the vacant floor space. In this
position, consideration should be given to the storage of perishable goods in the cupboard above.
Kickspace 600-12V units are suitable for installation in bathrooms beneath a bath or cupboard, but may be used in
locations where the extra safety of low voltage operation is seen to be advantageous.
No rear access shall be available to the unit after completion of installation.

2. ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
The electrical installation must comply with local or national Regulations.
2.1 The Kickspace is supplied fitted with a 2 metre 0.75 mm² cord.
2.2 A fused (2A) electrical spur with a switch having 3 mm separation on all poles must be provided in an easily
accessible position adjacent to the Kickspace, as shown in Fig. 2.2.
2.3 Room Thermostat - If a room thermostat is to be fitted, wire it at this stage. Remove the link in terminals T1
and T2. Connect sufficient cord to these terminals and connect to the thermostat.
2.4 Remote Control Switch - A Remote Control Switch is available as an accessory, and if required should be
wired at this stage. Follow the instructions supplied with the kit.
Do not energize the electrical supply until the remaining stages of the installation have been completed.
Note: If the supply cord to the transformer is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord/transformer assembly available
from Myson Convectors.

3. PREPARATION
3.1 A clean and level floor area is required under the cupboard or bath base.
3.2 Floor mounting - The Kickspace is normally fitted directly onto the floor. Four mounting feet are fitted to the
base of the unit.
Decide the position of the Kickspace, mark out and cut the plinth to the dimensions as shown in Fig. 3.2.
3.3 Plinth mounting - As an alternative to floor mounting the unit may be fitted into the plinth. For this
application cut the plinth to the dimensions as shown in Fig. 3.3.
3.4 A suitable support must be securely fitted to the floor. The top of the support must be level with the lower
edge of the cut-out when fitted.
A minimum of 25 mm clear headroom is required above the top of the Kickspace when fitted.
3.5 Flexible connection hoses with integral isolating valves are supplied to allow for easy installation and future
access for maintenance etc.

5. FITTING THE KICKSPACE
4.3 Fill and vent the system. A vent screw is
provided to vent the Kickspace heat exchanger.
5.1 Position the Kickspace under the cupboard in the
required location, with the front edge just behind
the line of the plinth.
Close the vent and check for leaks.
Note: Ensure that the flexible pipes are not kinked and
that the electrical cord is not in contact with hot surfaces.

8. Operation
Ensure that the electrical supply is switched on.
8.1. Winter use - for heating
If remote room thermostat is fitted, turn it to a high setting.
Set the fan speed switch to Boost or Low, see Fig. 7.
Set the Summer/Winter switch, see Fig. 7, to the Winter position by pressing to the red top disc.
The fan will now rotate provided hot water is circulating through the heat exchanger at or above 43°C.
If the unit has just been opened to the heating system or the system is not up to working temperature, there will be a
delay before the fan begins to run.
8.2. Temperature control
If a room thermostat is connected to control the Kickspace, its setting should be gradually adjusted to obtain the
required temperature. Use the fan speed switch at Boost or Low as required to increase or decrease the heat output of
the unit.
8.3. Time switch control
It is normal for a heating system to be controlled by a programmer or time switch. Under such control the internal low
temperature thermostat in the Kickspace ensures that the fan will stop after the heating system is switched off and the
water flow stops. It will automatically restart, if left in an operating position, when the heating system is reheated.
8.4. Summer use - for air circulation
If required, the Kickspace can be used in Summer for air circulation without heat. Set the Summer/Winter switch to the
Summer position by pressing to the blue bottom disc.
If a remote room thermostat is fitted, set it to its highest setting.
In this position the fan will run at the selected fan speed until manually reset.
8.5. Remote Control Switch
If a Remote Control Switch is fitted, the fan switch on the unit will be inoperative. Refer to the instructions supplied with the
Remote Control Switch for details.
9. MAINTENANCE
Isolate the electrical supply.
Maintenance should be restricted to occasional removal of dust and lint around the unit. In severe conditions, remove
the top cover and gently remove dust with a soft brush and vacuum cleaner, taking care not to damage the fan or heat
exchanger.
Do not tamper with any electrical parts.
In case of further service requirements, contact your supplier.
