Important Safety Advice:
When using electrical appliances, Basic precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electrical shock, and injury to persons, including the
following:
If the appliance is damaged, check with the supplier
before installation and operation.
Do not use outdoors.
Do not use in the immediate surroundings of a bath,
shower or swimming pool.
Do not locate the heater immediately below a fixed socket
outlet or connection box.
Do not cover the heater. Do not place material or
garments on the heater, or obstruct the air circulation
around the heater, for instance by curtains or furniture,
as this could cause overheating and a fire risk.
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.
Introduction
Unpack the heater carefully and retain the packaging for possible
future use, in the event of moving or returning the fire to your supplier.
These models are fitted with castors so they can moved from room
to room with ease, and are normally positioned against a wall.
A choice of 1kW or 2kW heat output is provided by the fan heater,
which is located at the bottom of the unit.
Before connecting the heater check that the supply voltage is the
same as that stated on the heater.
Please note: Used in an environment where background
noise is very low, it may be possible to hear a sound which
is related to the operation of the flame effect. This is normal
and should not be a cause for concern.
Electrical connection
WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
This heater must be used on an AC ~ supply only and the voltage
marked on the heater must correspond to the supply voltage.
Before switching on, please read the safety warnings and operating
instructions.
In the event of replacing the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13 amp fuse
approved by ASTA to BS1362 must be used.
Do not use this heater in series with a thermal control,
a program controller, a timer or any other device that
switches on the heat automatically, since a fire risk
exists when the heater is accidentally covered or
displaced.
Operation
Ensure that furniture, curtains or other combustible
material are positioned no closer than 1 metre from the
heater.
Controls
In the event of a fault unplug the heater.
Three switches provide a choice of heat settings. A switch is in the
ON position when the side with the markings on (i.e. I , I , or II ) is
pushed in.
Unplug the heater when not required for long periods.
The unique flame effect may be enjoyed whether or not the heating
elements are in operation.
The heater controls are located behind the flap on the front of the
heater. (see Fig 1).
Although this heater complies with safety standards,
we do not recommend its use on deep pile carpets or
on long hair type of rugs.
O
The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is
accessible.
If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by
the manufacturer or service agent or a similarly
qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.

overheats. This could occur for instance, if the air inlet or outlet
were restricted in any way. If the cut-out operates, the heater will
switch off. The heater will switch on once the obstruction has been
removed and the heater has cooled. If the cut-out continues to
operate intermittently, the heater should be switched off and
