4. USING THE HEATER
Important Safety
Never cover the heater or obstruct the openings at the base of the heater, this
could cause overheating and consequent risk of fire.
Figure 15. Controls
What are the three switches for?
The heater is operated by three switches located below the hood on the left hand side
of the heater.
Switch 1 =
Main On - Off. (In the ‘ON’ position, only the flame
effect operates)
Switch 2 =
1kW fan heat setting and flame effect. (Switch 1 needs
to be in the ‘ON’ position to enable switch 2 to operate).
Switch 3 =
2kW fan heat setting and flame effect. (Switches 1 & 2
need to be in the ‘ON’ position to enable switch 3 to
operate).
What is the knob for?
The heater has a variable energy control located below the hood on the right hand
side of the heater.
The variable energy control will only work when all three switches are on. If the room
requires maximum heat, rotate the control fully clockwise. For less heat rotate the
control counterclockwise until the required heat setting is achieved. When operating
the variable energy control will operate between the 1kW and 2kW settings. Turning
the knob fully counterclockwise will switch the variable energy function off.

5. CLEANING AND MAINTAINING THE HEATER
How do I clean my heater?
The heater fascia and plastic parts need only to be wiped clean with a dry soft cloth,
do not use polishes or abrasive materials. The Seattle heater may have fingerprints
on the fascia surface. These can be removed by applying a small amount of ‘baby oil’
to a lint free non-abrasive cloth and wiping the surface. Use a clean cloth to remove
the oil.
I have a problem with my heater!
Important Safety
Before undertaking maintenance always disconnect the heater from the
electricity supply by removing the 3 pin plug and allowing the heater to cool
completely.
1. My heater is on but there is no light or heat.
The first thing to do is check the wall socket. To do this plug in a known working
appliance. If the appliance you have plugged in works then there is a good chance
that the problem lies with the 13 Amp fuse in the heater plug. If either fuse or socket
is suspected, have them checked by an electrician.
2. My heater is on but there is no heat.
A cut out device is fitted to the heater to prevent damage due to over heating. If it
operates due to an obstruction in the airflow, the heater must be turned off and
allowed to cool for 15 minutes and the obstruction removed before restarting.
3. I Have a problem that is different to those in the previous examples
1- 3.
