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

ensure contact with the heater is avoided and objects cannot
be inserted into the product.
If the mains lead is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified
person in order to avoid a hazard.
IMPORTANT : If the plug is not suitable for your socket, the 13
amp plug should be removed. Before wiring the appropriate plug,
please note that the wires in this mains lead are coloured in

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’.

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.

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.

Setting Programmes
Fig. 3
This ensures that the heater will not produce heat unnecessarily
when the room is warm.
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.

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

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.

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.
