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 rewirable 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.
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 accordance with the following
code :
GREEN AND YELLOW :
EARTH
BLUE :

Locate the heater on the top brackets and allow it to hang in place.
Fit the bottom bracket into the slot in the heater and then fix it to the wall.
Test that the heater is now securely fixed to the wall.
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.

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.
Timer Operation
Free standing use
Set the I - ¡ - 0 slide switch on the timer
(Fig. 5) to :
NEVER USE THE HEATER FREE STANDING WITHOUT THE FEET
FITTED.
Position O - Heating Off
Lay the heater on its back,
and locate the foot fixing
screw (see a. in Fig. 3).
Remove the screw using
an X–head screwdriver,
then align foot over slots
and holes in base (see ‘b’
in Fig. 3) and push into
slots until the foot clips
into place.
Finally take the foot fixing
screw, insert and tighten
using a screwdriver to
secure the foot.
Position ¡ - ‘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.
Position I - Manual operation
– This setting allows power to the heater
uninterrupted by the timer settings. The
heat selector switch will control the
output (see ‘Using the heater’).
Fig. 5
Setting the time of day
To set the time of day, rotate the timer
dial clockwise (indicated by the arrow)
until the correct time of day is opposite
the reference mark ► (see Fig. 5). The
24-hour clock is used ; e.g. time shown
for 4 pm is ‘16’ (16:00hrs).

NOTE – The wall mounting brackets indicated in Fig. 3 can be left secured
to the base if they are not required.
Setting the ‘Auto’ ON and OFF times
Using the heater
Fig. 6
1. Using your finger tip or the tip of a
pencil, push in as many segments as
necessary around the dial, according to
the times you don’t require heat – see
Fig. 7. Each segment pushed in switches
the heater OFF for that part of the hour.
All other segments will be ON. For
example, Fig. 9 shows the timer set to
switch the heater ON between 7 am and
9 am and between 4 pm and 9.30 pm .
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.
The timer clock will operate all the time that the heater is connected to the
mains supply.
Set the timer control switch as required for
OFF, Manual or Automatic operation –
see ‘Timer Operation’.

Switching to auto
The heat output is controlled by the thermostat - see ‘Thermostat’
Set the heat selector and thermostat for
the heat output required.
Check that the clock shows the correct
time of day. Set the I - ¡ - 0 slide switch
to ¡ (see Fig. 8) - the convector will
switch ON and OFF according to the
timer settings (see Fig 9).
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.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Controls
Remember to observe all safety
warnings when operating the heater on
auto setting unattended or attended .
If the mains supply to the heater is
interrupted, the timer clock will stop until
power is restored ; reset the time of day
to ensure correct ON and OFF times.
Thermostat (all models)
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
Fig. 9
Turbo Fan model 3077
The turbo fan is used to boost
the airflow around the room.
To circulate the heat around
the room to reach the desired
temperature more quickly, set
the neon heat selector switches
to ON, and the Turbo switch
to ON.
The fan and the neon switch
will cycle on and off under
the control of the thermostat
– see ‘Thermostat’.
In warm weather, the fan can
be used to circulate cool air.

Important Notes
After Sales Service
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 – call our Helpline for further advice.
Your appliance is guaranteed for three years from the date of purchase.
We undertake to repair or exchange free of charge within this period, any
part found to be defective due to a manufacturing fault.
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.
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.
Your rights under this guarantee are additional to your statutory rights,
which in turn are not affected by this guarantee.
Please retain your receipt as proof of purchase.
The heat outlet grille may become discoloured with use – this is caused by
airborne pollution and is not a fault.
