SITE REQUIREMENTS
The appliance is designed to be wall mounted via the brackets on the rear panel with the fixings
provided. The wall should be relatively flat and not interfere with any of the ventilation slots in
the rear panel.
The wall must be structurally sound and of a material capable of withstanding moderate heat.
Finished plaster, conventional wallpaper, dry-lined plaster board are examples of suitable materials. Materials such as flock, blown vinyl, embossed paper or cloth wall coverings which are sensitive to even small amounts of heat should be avoided, as some discolouration may occur.
It should be noted that the appliance creates warm convected air currents. These currents move
heat from the room surroundings to, and up the wall surfaces adjacent to the heater.
Installing the heater next to these types of wall coverings or operating the heater where impurities in the air, (such as tobacco smoke) exist, may slightly discolour wall finishing.
If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined or timber framed construction then the integrity and ability of the wall to carry the weight of the appliance must be confirmed. It is important
in these circumstances that any vapour barrier and/or structural members of the house frame
are not damaged.
If you are unsure of the ability of the wall to carry the weight and/or which type of wall fixing to
use, you should take professional advice and obtain the correct fixings. Alternatively, find a more
suitable wall location.
DO NOT
-

FIXING THE APPLIANCE
A) Marking Positions:
Having selected the final mounting position for the appliance, taking into account the site
requirements as detailed in section 4, the heater can now be fixed to the wall.
There are three fixing positions, two upper “hanging” positions”, and one lower position on the
backpanel located behind the fuel bed. Refer to Fig 4 for details.
A template is provided to aid location of fixings. Use a spirit level to ensure that the template is
level. This ensures that both upper and lower fixing positions are horizontally aligned.
Using the template in the required position on the wall, “mark through” the template and onto
the wall at the three mounting locations designated “P23E” for this particular appliance. Now
remove the template.
B) Wall Fixings:
If the appliance is to be mounted on the inner leaf of a conventional cavity wall or a solid wall,
drill three holes using a 7mm masonry bit.
Insert the wall-plugs provided. If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined wall or timber
framed construction, then special cavity screw fixings will be required, that are not supplied with
this product. Insert 2 x 37mm long fixing screws into the upper two wall-plugs, taking care to
leave the screws protruding approximately 6mm from the wall.
The appliance can now be “hung” onto the two upper wall fixings, ensuring that the heads of the
screws go through the keyhole shaped holes, and then drop down into the slot.
Ensure that the lower rear panel fixing hole aligns with the wall plug, and then insert 1 x 37mm
long fixing screw and fully tighten.
Finally fully tighten the two upper fixing screws, through the two panel acess holes at the front
of the appliance.
C) Re-Assembly of Appliance:
Note: re-assembly is the reverse of disassembly as described in section 8.0
1. Refit the fuel bed, ensuring that the lamp spinner is free to rotate.
2. Refit the lower lamp cover plate, firstly inserting the bottom edge behind the firebox lip.
Secure with the two screws previously removed.
3. Reattach the front decorative frame by hanging onto the two upper fixing bolts, and reinserting the two lower fixing bolts through the lower fixing brackets. Retighten the two lower fixing
bolts.
Finally, peel off any remaining protective plastic coatings on the front frame, curved backpanel
and the plastic fuel bed.
D) Placement of Pebbles:
Unpack the pebbles and arrange them over the fuel bed.
The final pebble arrangement can only be done later
when the lamp is switched on and light shines up
through the transparent cover. The ideal pebble layout is
shown in the photograph on the right.

OPERATING THE APPLIANCE
Read All Instructions Before Use
Check that the heater outlet grille, mounted at the top of the appliance, is not covered or
obstructed in any way, and ensure the power to the fire is switched on. The appliance is controlled using four switches mounted at the right hand side towards the top.
The first switch towards the front, marked (0I), controls the main power to the appliance and
switches on the visual light display. This feature can be used independently of the heating features.
*
The next switch marked ( ) operates the fan blower without heat, and can be used for cool air
circulation. However for this feature, the main power switch (0I), must also be in the “on” position.
The next switch with a “single bar” marked (I) operates the low heat, (1kW), setting.
The switch with “two single bars” marked (II), operates the high heat, (2kW) setting.
To operate the fire in any of the above modes, the left hand switch marked (OI) must be
switched to the “on” position.
To operate the fire, the first switch must be turned on firstly, followed by the second switch to
start the blower, if required. To obtain heat from the appliance, the I switch must then be operated for LOW heat, followed by the II switch for the HIGH heat setting.
The appliance can be switched off at any time, irrespective of the particular mode selected, by simply switching the first switch marked (OI) to the “off” position.
It is also recommended to unplug the power supply cable at the supply outlet when not in
use.
11.0
SAFETY CUT-OUT SYSTEM
This appliance has a safety cut-out system fitted which will activate if the air inlets or heater outlets are obstructed. For safety reasons the fire WILL NOT switch on again automatically.
NOTE: The visual light effect will remain operational if the cut-out is activated, only the fan
heater elements are prevented from operating.
The following procedure must be carried out before the fire can be operated again:
1. Unplug the power supply cable at the outlet socket and place all switches to off at the
appliance.
2. Leave the fire OFF for a period of not less than 10 minutes, ensuring any obstructions are
removed.
3. Plug in the power supply cable at the outlet socket, and then switch on at the appliance.
If the appliance fails to operate correctly, repeat the above procedure.
If an attempt to switch on is made before the safety cut-out has reset, the heaters may cut-out
for a further period of time. If the sequence has been followed correctly and the heaters still fail
to function, check the power supply cable plug is plugged in at the outlet socket. If this is not
the cause, call an electrician.

CLEANING
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE APPLIANCE AT THE SUPPLY OUTLET SOCKET BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY CLEANING.
There are no specific requirements for care, other than regular cleaning of the general appliance.
A wipe with a dry cloth is normally sufficient.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners as they can damage the finish.
STAINLESS STEEL AREAS - These parts may be cleaned using an appropriate metal polish. Clean
only in the direction of the grain. Alternatively, a small amount of baby oil applied in the direction of the grain, with a soft, lint free cloth. Another effective way to restore the 'as new' look to
the stainless steel parts, is use of a proprietary car interior cleaning agent such as 'Cockpit shine'.
This should be sprayed directly on to the metal and then wiped off with a clean lint free cloth.
SERVICING
There are no internal user serviceable parts.
Check regularly for security of wall fixings as appropriate. Also check security of supply cable
and connections. If the supply cable becomes damaged, it must be replaced by a service agent
or competent person, such as a qualified electrician.
The wires in the cable are coloured in accordance with the following code:
LIVE
NEUTRAL
EARTH
- Brown
- Blue
- Green/Yellow
Refer to Section 2.0, Appliance Data for fuse specification. Excluding fuses and lamps, use only
genuine manufacturers spare parts available from your supplier.
Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste. Please recycle where facilities exist. Check with your
local authority or retailer for recycling advice
As our policy is one of continuous improvement and development, we hope therefore you will understand we must retain the right to amend
details and/or specifications without prior notice.
