LH foot Fig. 3 Permanent wall mounting Using the heater Before attempting permanent wall mounting, ensure that the wall mounting brackets have been removed from the base of the heater – see ‘Removal of the wall mounting brackets’. Before switching on ensure that all packing items are removed (read any warning labels carefully) and that the feet are fitted or the heater is wall mounted correctly, otherwise damage may occur. Select a suitable position on a wall, near to a mains power socket, making sure that there is at least 230mm below the heater and at least 300mm above the heater of unobstructed space. Fix the two top retaining brackets to the wall, using suitable fixings, at 358mm centres. Locate the heater on the top brackets and allow it to hang in place. Fit the bottom brackets into the slots in the heater and then fix them to the wall. Test that the heater is now securely fixed to the wall. Plug in and switch on at the wall socket. 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. 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. Moving the heater Heat Selection switch (2570 model only) DO NOT move the heater when it is ON. The heat selection switch is an economy feature. centres 358mm The switch is a 2 position switch with the possible heat settings as follows:- LIFT HERE LIFT HERE I - The heater operates at half heat output II - The heater operates at full heat output Thermostat (2571 and 2572 models) Fixing holes for optional extra handle Wall mounting bracket Fig. 4 Carrying handles For carrying, lifting recesses are provided at each end of the heater – see Fig. 4. If you have hands of limited dexterity and are unable to use two hands to carry the heater, a single carrying handle which fixes to the rear panel is available as an extra optional extra from our Customer Helpline (see last page) Attach the handle to the two holes in the rear panel of the heater, as shown in Fig.4, using the two screws provided. 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. Ensure that curtains and furniture are not positioned close to the chosen position, as this would create a potential fire hazard. We recommend that the heater should be wall mounted in rooms where children may be left unattended. See also ‘Important Safety Advice’. Please Note : 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 or wall mount it. Safety Overheat Protection – all models A manual reset thermal cut-out will switch off the heater if, for any reason, it overheats. Should the cut-out operate, determine the reason for overheating before resetting the cut-out. To reset the cut-out, switch off or unplug the heater for a few minutes, after which normal operation may be resumed The thermostat 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 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 Fig. 5 frosty conditions. thermostat control Mains Neon (2572 model only) The Mains neon will light when the heater is connected to the mains supply Timer Model (2572 model only) REMEMBER TO OBSERVE ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AT ALL TIMES Manual Operation – Slide the control switch to : Fig. 6).

The heat output will be maximum and thermostatically controlled - see ‘Thermostat’. Fig. 6 Fig. 7 Switching to auto – Check that the clock shows the correct time of day, then slide the timer control switch to : - The heater will switch ON and OFF according to the timer settings (see Fig. 8). Fig. 8 Auto operation DO NOT disconnect this heater from the mains supply unless it is being taken out of use (e.g. in Summer or for storage), otherwise the timer clock will stop. Setting the auto ON and OFF times Using your thumb nail or the tip of a pencil, pull OUT as many segments as necessary around the dial, according to the times you require heat (see Fig. 9). Each segment switches the heater ON for part of an hour. All other segments will be OFF. For example, Fig 10 shows the timer set to switch the heater ON between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. and between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. (17:00 to 20:00 hrs, 24-hr clock). You can select as many ON periods as you like, within the 24-hour day. The settings will repeat every day until changed. To change ON and OFF times, simply push in any ‘ON’ segments you wish to cancel and pull out new segments as required. Rotate the timer dial clockwise (indicated by the arrow) until the correct time of day is opposite the reference mark (see Fig. 10). Fig. 9 Fig. 10 ON Times : 8-11 a.m and 5-8 p.m. Safety – overheat protection For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a thermal cut-out. In the event that the product overheats, the cut-out switches the heater off automatically. To bring the heater back into operation, remove the cause of the overheating, then unplug or turn off the electrical supply to the heater for a few minutes. When the heater has cooled sufficiently, re-connect and switch on the heater. 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.
