Using the Heater
Electrical connection
This heater must be used on an A.C.~ supply only and the voltage
marked on the heater must correspond to the supply voltage. This heater
is fitted with a plug incorporating a 13 amp fuse. When replacing the
fuse, a 13 amp fuse approved by ASTA to BS 1362 must be used.
If the plug is not suitable for the socket outlets in your home, the plug
must be cut off and an appropriate one fitted. A plug cut off from a
mains lead will give a shock hazard if inserted into a 13 amp socket
elsewhere in the house. To avoid this, it should be disposed of
NOTE: The fuse cover of a non-rewirable plug must be refitted when
changing the fuse. Should the cover become lost, the plug must not be
used until the correct replacement fuse cover is obtained from your
supplier or by contacting our customer helpline.
