Warning: In order to avoid overheating, do not cover the heater Caution: In order to avoid a hazard due to inadvertent resetting of the thermal cutout, this appliance must not be supplied through an external switching device, such as a timer, or connected to a circuit that is regularly switched on and off by the utility. This appliance is not intended for use by children or other persons without assistance or supervision if their physical, sensory or mental capabilities prevent them from using it safely. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. If young children, the aged or infirm are likely to be left in the vicinity of the heater, we advise that adequate precautions should be taken.

Positioning the heater Always ensure that the heater is stood on a firm, level base near to, but not directly beneath, a suitable mains supply socket, ensuring at least 300mm clearance from any shelf above. Ensure that curtains and furniture are not positioned close to the chosen position, as this would create a potential fire hazard. See also ‘Important Safety Advice’. Fitting Feet NEVER USE THE HEATER FREE STANDING WITHOUT THE FEET FITTED. Electrical connection WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED This heater must be used on an ~ supply only and the voltage marked on the heater must correspond to the supply voltage. This heater is fitted with a rewireable plug incorporating a 13 amp fuse. In the event of replacing the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13 amp fuse approved by ASTA to BS 1362 must be used. If any other type of plug is used, a 15 amp fuse must be fitted in the plug, the adaptor, or at the distribution board. Fig. 2 Lay the heater on its back, and locate the foot fixing screw (see ‘a’ in Fig. 2). Remove the screw using an X–head screwdriver, then align foot over slots and holes in base and slide home. Finally take the foot fixing screw, insert and tighten using a screwdriver to secure the foot. Using the heater Plug in and switch on at the wall socket. On standard models with a neon, the red POWER ON neon will light when the heater is connected to the power supply. On timer models the timer clock will operate all the time that the heater is connected to the mains supply. On model DXLAT150 the heat selector switch positions are as follows: ‘MAN ON’ MODE allows power to the heater uninterrupted by the program settings. Key Lock: If ‘ENTER’ and ‘MODE’ are pressed within 1 second, the keys will be locked. The user will know the keys are locked as the lock symbol ‘ ’ will be displayed on the top left hand corner of the screen. To unlock the keypad, press ‘ENTER’ and then ‘MODE’ within 1 second. Initial Operation O - Off I - Low Heat (750W) II - High Heat (1500W) For initial use, plug the heater into a regular household power point and turn the power on. The timer is now ready to be set up for use. On model DXLAT75 there is an On /Off switch – operation as follows: O - Off ON OFF 13 : 17 P1 ADVANCE I - AUTO On (750W) Model DXLAT150Ti is controlled by a Digital Timer – see ‘Digital Timer Operation’ The heat output is controlled by the thermostat - see ‘Thermostat’ Please note – the element has been coated with a protective film which will burn off during the first few minutes of use and may cause a small amount of fuming. This is quite normal – the fumes are non-toxic and will quickly disappear. We recommend that you open a window to ventilate the room when using the heater for the first time. Controls Thermostat - see Fig. 3 The thermostat controls the heat output according to the room temperature. MAN ON Fig. 4 Setting Current Time 1. Press the ‘PROGRAM’ button ONCE. The clock symbol appears on the top left hand side of the screen. The user can now set the clock. 2. The hour digit will flash. To adjust the hour use the ‘-‘ & ‘+’ buttons. Confirm the hour digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. 3. Once ‘ENTER’ has been pressed the minutes will flash. To adjust the minutes use the ‘-‘&‘+’ buttons. Confirm the minute digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. 4.

To set the temperature you require, turn the thermostat knob clockwise until the desired temperature is reached. Alternatively to heat a cold room quickly, turn the thermostat knob up fully. When the room has reached the desired temperature, turn the thermostat knob anti-clockwise until the thermostat just clicks off. The heater will now automatically operate at this temperature. The thermostat also has a frost protection setting marked ‘*’. This setting is useful in areas such as garages to prevent frost damage. If the thermostat is set to its minimum setting ‘*’, the heater will cycle ON and OFF to maintain a temperature of approximately 5°C to help protect against frosty conditions. Digital Timer Operation - see Fig. 4 IMPORTANT: Remember to observe all safety warnings when operating the heater on auto setting, either attended or unattended. The timer allows you to select ‘AUTO’ or ‘MAN ON’ by pressing the ‘MODE’ button until the required MODE appears at the bottom of the timer display. ‘AUTO’ MODE allows the heater to switch ON and OFF according to a set 24 Hour program period (see ‘Setting Programs’ section below). Press the ‘PROGRAM’ key twice to set the programs. You are now setting the programs starting with P1 ‘ON’. SETTING P1 ON TIME: 1. To set the hour use the ‘-‘ & ‘+’ buttons. Confirm the hour digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. 2. To set the minutes use the ‘-‘ & ‘+’ buttons. Confirm the minute digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. Note: The minutes can only be set in 10 minute blocks in programme ‘MODE’. SETTING P1 OFF TIME: 3. To set the hour use the ‘-‘ & ‘+’ buttons. Confirm the hour digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. 4. To set the minutes use the ‘-‘ & ‘+’ buttons. Confirm the minute digit by pressing ‘ENTER’. Repeat steps 1 to 4 to programme P2, P3 & P4. After programming P4 ‘OFF’ you automatically exit to the default display. At any time while programming the timer you can press the ‘PROGRAM’ button to exit to the default display. The Advance Function When in ‘AUTO’ MODE, if the ‘+’ button is pressed for longer than 2 seconds the programme will ADVANCE to the next setting programmed and will only revert back to the program when the subsequent programme time is reached. When the ‘ADVANCE’ function is running the ‘ADVANCE’ segment will be displayed on the LCD screen. If the ‘-‘ button is pressed when the ‘ADVANCE’ programme is running the ‘ADVANCE’ feature will be automatically cancelled and the programme will run as normal. Note - Timer Memory Back Up Batteries - Once the heater has been left plugged in with the socket switched on for at least 72 hours the timer’s memory back up batteries will be fully charged. Once the timer batteries are fully charged, if there is a power cut or if the heater is disconnected from the mains for less than six months, then the timer will continue to keep time & the settings in the memory will remain intact. Safety – overheat protection For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a thermal cut-out. In the event that the product overheats for some reason, the cut-out prevents excessive temperatures on the product by cutting the power to the heater. Once the heater has cooled down, it will reset automatically, it will continue to cycle on and off automatically until the reason for overheating has been removed. Important Notes Although this heater is manufactured to comply with the relevant safety standards, certain types of carpets could become discoloured by the temperatures under a portable heater. If you are concerned about this, we recommend that you contact the carpet manufacturer for guidance. Alternatively, either stand the heater on a suitable base to shield the carpet – call our Helpline for further advice. You may notice some parts of the element appearing to be hotter from time to time because of the variable airflow through the heater. This does not cause a safety hazard. The heat outlet grille may become discoloured with use – this is caused by airborne pollution and is not a fault. Cleaning and User Maintenance WARNING – ALWAYS DISCONNECT FROM THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE CLEANING THE HEATER. Do not use detergents, abrasive cleaning powder or polish of any kind on the body of the heater. Allow the heater to cool, then wipe with a dry cloth to remove dust and a damp cloth (not wet) to clean off stains. Be careful not to allow moisture into the heater.
