When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce risk
of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2. This appliance is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surfaces.
Use handle when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes and curtains at least 3 feet (0,9 m) from the front and top
of the heater and keep them away from the sides and rear.
3. Extreme caution is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children or invalids
and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.
4. Always unplug appliance when not in use.
5. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return heater to authorized service facility for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.
6. Do not use outdoors.
7. This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas and similar indoor locations. Never locate appliance where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.
8. Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or the like.
Arrange cord away from traffic area and where it will not be tripped over.
9. To disconnect the appliance, turn controls to off, then remove plug from outlet.
10. Connect to properly polarized outlets only.
11. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation opening as this may cause
an electric shock, fire or damage the appliance.
12. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intakes or exhaust in any manner. Do not use
on soft surfaces, like a bed, where openings may become blocked.
13. A fan heater has hot or arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it in areas where
gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.
14. Use this appliance only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by
the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
15. To prevent overload and blown fuses, be sure that no other appliance is plugged into the
same outlet (receptacle) or into another outlet (receptacle) wired into the same circuit.
16. It is normal for the heater’s plug and cord to feel warm to the touch. A plug or cord which
becomes hot to the touch or becomes distorted in shape may be a result of a worn electrical outlet (receptacle). Worn outlets or receptacles should be replaced prior to further use
of the heater. Plugging heater into a worn outlet/receptacle/ may result in overheating of
the power cord or fire.
17. This heater is not intended for use with an extension cord. Plug the cord directly into an
appropriate wall receptable.
18. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into an appropriate receptacle. Please remember that
receptacles also deteriorate due to aging and continuous use: check periodically if signs
overheating or deformations are evidenced by the plug. Do not use the receptacle and
CALL your electrician.
19. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cable have been damaged in any way
during transportation.
20. CAUTION: to prevent electric shock match wide blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert.
21. Do not cover the appliance while it is functioning in order to avoid overheating with the
attendant risk of fire.
Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
- This heater includes a thermal Cut-Off Overheat Protection System that shuts the unit off if it
overheats due to abnormal conditions. It this occurs, the Overheat safety light “red” will
turn on. Turn the heater “Off”, unplug it, and inspect and remove any objects on or adjacent to the heater. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, plug it back in, and resume normal
- Always use the heater in an upright position.
- Do not use the heater to dry your laundry. Never obstruct the intake and outlet grilles (danger of overheating).
- The appliance must be installed so that the switches and other controls cannot be reached
from a person standing in a bathtub or a shower.
- The electrical feed cord must be replaced only by officially authorized personnel.
The fan heater must be connected to a properly polarized A/C 120 V household outlet in perfect working condition.
Keep loose clothing or bedding, furniture and flammable material away from the wall outlet
where the heater is plugged in.
The fan heater can be easily positioned on any horizontal support surface in an upright position.

Setting the thermostat:
When the room has reached the desired temperature, slowly turn the thermostat knob
counter-clockwise until you hear a “click”, and not beyond that point. The thermostat will then
adjust that set temperature automatically and keep it constant.

When it is set in this way the appliance keeps the room at a temperature of approx. 41° F
(5° C ) with minimal energy expenditure.
Switching the appliance off: turn the function selector in position “0” and the thermostat in
position, then remove the plug from the electrical outlet.
Additional features: Front Safety Guards- prevent the front grill from touching the floor
when the heater is tipped over forward.
Convenient Carry Handle-allows for easy transport from room to room.
Always remove the plug from the power socket and allow the heater to cool. After the heater has
cooled, clean it with a soft damp cloth, do not use detergents or abrasives. Periodically clean the
air intake and outlet grilles during the period in which the heater is in use with a vacuum cleaner.
Should the heater not be in use over a certain length of time, store it in a dry place.
This appliance has been built to provide many years of trouble free service.
In case of malfunction, do not try to repair the heater yourself: it may result in fire hazard or electric shock. Call the nearest Service Center (see attached list of Service Centers).
A safety device switches the fan heater off if it accidentally overheats. To reset the unit for normal
operation, remove the plug from the mains socket for a few minutes, eliminate the cause of overheating (e.g. air intake or outlet grilles obstructed) and then plug the fan heater back in again.
Contact your nearest Service Center if the fan heater does not begin normal operation again.
The appliance is equipped with a double tip-over-switch for extra safety. This device turns the
appliance off should it fall over or if it is not perfectly stable. To restart the appliance, simply
place it upright again.
