Important Safety Advice
Fitting the castors
If the appliance is damaged, check immediately with the supplier
before installation and operation.
Remove the carton containing the castor assemblies from the packing.
Fit the castors to the stub axles by applying hand pressure until each
castor clicks into position - see Fig. 3. Note that the castors are designed
to be a tight fit on the axles but will rotate in use.
The castors can only be fitted between the outer fins (as shown in Fig. 2).
Turn the radiator upside down on a carpet or other soft surface to avoid
damage
WARNING : THE RADIATOR IS HEAVY – ENSURE THAT IT IS SUPPORTED
TO PREVENT IT FROM TOPPLING. Ask a second person to help with this
if necessary. Position castor bracket (see Fig. 3) onto the threaded pins on
the control panel. Place the winged nut ‘C’ on the thread and tighten it
securely.
Repeat the process for castor bracket ‘B’ onto the last fin.
Note: The 5 fin column radiator models - OFRC10 & OFRC10TI use
curved castor brackets and must be fitted as shown in Fig. 2.
Lift the radiator clear of the floor, then turn it back upright and stand it on
its castors as shown in Fig. 1. It is now ready for use.
Warning – This appliance must not be used in a bathroom.
Warning – Do not use this heater in the immediate surroundings
of a bath, a shower or a swimming pool.
Warning – This heater must not be located immediately below a
fixed socket outlet.
Warning – Do not use in areas where petrol, paint or flammable
liquids are used or stored.
Follow these instructions carefully.
The heater carries a warning ‘Do Not Cover’ to alert the user to
the risk of fire that exists if the heater is accidentally covered.
The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities
or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the
appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should
be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
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.
Unplug the heater when not required for long periods.
Momentary contact with any part of the heater should not cause
injury. However aged, infirm persons or young children should
not be left unsupervised in the vicinity of the heater.
Please Note – We recommend that you open a window to ventilate
the room when using the heater for the first time.
THE HEATER CARRIES THE WARNING SYMBOL INDICATING
THAT IT MUST NOT BE COVERED.
General
The radiator is designed for operation on an AC electricity supply, and is
suitable for use in domestic dwellings and similar indoor locations.
Always ensure that the appliance is stood on a firm, level base near to,
but not directly beneath, a suitable fixed socket outlet.
The radiator is fitted with castors and a handle for ease of movement.
Selector switches provide a choice of heat output and an adjustable
thermostat enables the room temperature to be controlled accordingly. It
is supplied with a cord and plug ready for use.
The supply cord should be uncoiled before use (see ‘Storage’).
DO NOT pull the radiator along by the mains lead.
Important - The radiator must only be operated with the wheels and
castors fitted and in the upright position as shown in Fig. 1.
Warning – The heater complies with stringent safety standards but to
ensure efficient operation SURFACES OF THE HEATER WILL BECOME
HOT AND CONTACT WITH THESE AREAS SHOULD BE AVOIDED,
particularly between the fins on the top and sides.
The control panel area is designed to be at a far lower temperature to
allow the safe operation of the controls at any time.
Electrical
WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
If the socket outlets in your home are not of the 13 amp BS1363 type they
will not accept the plug connected to this heater, therefore cut off the
plug. When cut off this plug can constitute a shock hazard if inserted into
a socket outlet. It must therefore be disposed of safely.
Before wiring the appropriate plug please note that the wires in this
Positioning the Heater
Select the position for the radiator ensuring there is clearance from any
furniture and fittings of at least 300mm above the heater and 150mm
each side. The radiator should only be operated on a flat stable surface.
Operation
IMPORTANT – Objects or clothing must not be placed on this heater.
Before using the heater ensure that all warnings and instructions have
been read carefully.
To bring the heater into use plug it in. Neon indicating lights located at
the controls area will glow when the appliance is plugged into the mains.
Controls
Thermostat (see Fig. 4)
The Thermostat (see Fig. 4) controls the heat output according to the
room temperature. 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 required setting 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. With the
‘ and the heat selection switch set to the required
thermostat set to ‘
heat output the appliance switches on automatically when the temperature
falls below +5°C to +8°C.
Note – Should the heater fail to come on when the thermostat is at a low
setting, this may be due to the room temperature being higher than the
thermostat setting.
Heat Selector Switches (see Fig. 5)
Selector switches located on the control panel provide a choice of heat
output to suit varying conditions and for economy of operation.

Digital Timer Operation (see Fig. 6)
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).
‘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.
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.
If however the timer back up batteries have not been charged fully, or if
the heater is deprived of power for longer than six months, then the time
and the programme settings are likely to be lost and you may therefore
need to reset the time and the programme before using the AUTO MODE
again.
Storage
If the radiator is not required for long periods, for example during the
summer, it should be stored in a dry place and preferably covered to
prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust. The supply cord should be
neatly coiled around the cable wrap (see Fig. 1) ensuring that the plug
does not trail on the floor.
Initial Operation
IMPORTANT
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.
The heater must be kept plugged in at the mains to retain the time and
the programmed settings. If unplugged from the mains, resetting the
time and the programmed settings will be necessary.

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.

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. The timer now returns to the default display.
5. To reset incorrect time, repeat previous steps.
Once the correct time is set, a total of four ON/OFF time programs can be
set for operation.
Setting Programmes
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:
