WARNING: AVOID COVERING THE CONVECTOR TO PREVENT IT FROM OVERHEATING.

The symbol below signals the above warning:

• The convector may cause risk of fire if, while in operation, is covered by or comes into contact with flammable material including curtains, drapery, blankets, etc. KEEP THE CONVECTOR AWAY FROM THESE MATERIALS.

• Do not insert and avoid accidental insertion of any external objects into the ventilation or discharge outlets as this may lead to electric shock, fire or damage the convector.

• A convector contains parts that generate arcs or sparks. It must not be used in potentially dangerous areas such as areas at risk of fire or explosion, or areas loaded with chemical substances or humidity.

• Do not use the convector on soft surfaces such as beds, where the grilles may be covered. Always stand the convector on a flat, stable surface when in operation, in order to prevent it from overturning. Arrange the cord in such a way that the convector and other objects do not rest on it. Do not run the cord under carpets. Do not cover the cord with blankets, carpets or similar materials. Place the cord far away from busy areas, or in a place where it cannot be accidentally pulled-out.

• This convector cannot be used in bathrooms, laundry rooms, next to a shower or swimming pool or in similar indoor environments. Never position the convector where it may fall into a bath or other containers of water.

• Never position the convector on a wet floor.

• In any case, the adjustment knobs must never be accessible by anyone in a bath or shower.

• Do not position the convector below an electric socket.

• The socket must be earthed.

• Do not allow the electric cord to touch the metal structure of the convector when it is hot or in operation, in order to avoid the high temperatures ruining the cord.

• Do not operate the convector outdoors. Do not use the convector in front of or near an open window.

V 05/10 2

WARNING: do not use the convector with a controller or any other device that activates the convector automatically, as there may be a risk of fire if the convector is covered or incorrectly positioned.

• Upon initial start-up, the convector may emit a slight, harmless smell. This smell is a normal effect of the initial heating up of the internal heating elements, and should not recur later on.

• Do not attempt to repair, disassemble or modify the convector. The convector does not contain parts that can be repaired by the user.

• Turn the switch off and unplug before carrying out any maintenance work or moving the convector. Always unplug from the socket when the convector is not in use.

WARNING: ALWAYS UNPLUG WHEN CARRYING OUT MAINTENANCE WORK OR MOVING THE CONVECTOR.

• Do not place anything on the convector; avoid placing wet garments on the convector.

• Turn the appliance off if unattended in order to avoid accidents.

• If the convector is not used for prolonged periods, disconnect the plug, replace the convector in its box and store it in a dry, ventilated place.

• Ensure that the air inlet /outlet are not close to walls or curtains when the convector is in use, so as to avoid obstructing the convector and hampering its efficiency.

• Should you hear an abnormal noise or detect an unusual smell when using the convector, cease use and unplug immediately.

• Do not expose the elderly or children to a continuous flow of air.

• Do not use the convector if it has been damaged or dropped.

WARNING:

THE ON/OFF SWITCH IS NOT THE ONLY MEANS TO DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY. ALWAYS PULL OUT

THE PLUG FROM THE SOCKET IN THE EVENT OF MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS, WHEN MOVING THE PANEL

OR WHEN NOT IN USE.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE FEET SUPPLIED

The convector is packed without feet. These must therefore be assembled before using the appliance.

To fix the feet supplied to the convector base, insert each at one of the two sides of the base, and slide them to the limit stop.

View from below of the side of the convector base without the foot fitted.

Convector foot to be inserted laterally in the specific space.

The foot must be allowed to slide along the specific grooves, in the direction indicated by the arrows .

The foot is now correctly assembled.

HOW TO USE THE CONVECTOR

Choose a suitable place to position the convector, considering the general safety warnings given in the first part of this manual. Only use this convector in an upright position.

Insert the plug into the electrical socket, ensuring that voltage is compliant with that specified on the convector data plate.

Select the desired temperature using the thermostat: L means low temperature and H means high temperature. The convector will only start operating only if the thermostat is above minimum temperature (turn the thermostat in a clockwise direction - from L to H).

Now choose the desired power level and turbo mode if required, using the power selector as shown in the image below.

1 - Low power (1000 Watts) 2 - High power (2000 Watts) u - High power (2000 Watts) + forced ventilation (turbo)

By turning the thermostat dial, the temperature can be regulated as desired. Remember that once the temperature has been set, the convector will operate until this temperature is reached and then maintain the temperature by turning itself on and off as necessary.

To turn the convector off completely turn the power selector back to 0 and then rotate the thermostat dial anticlockwise until it clicks off.

Unplug the appliance if it will not be used for a while.

OPERATING TIMER (HI FLOOR CLASSIC T model)

The HI FAN CLASSIC T model is equipped with a very simple timer that allows for the programming of convector operation from 1 to 60 minutes.

Indicator set to OFF: the convection heater

stops operating.

Indicator set to ON: the convection heater

functions continuously.

Use of the timer function (from 0 to

60 minutes): turn the timer dial clockwise and set the number of minutes for which you wish the appliance to function.

OVERHEATING SAFETY DEVICE

In the event of overheating, the convector protection system automatically disables the heating elements, turning the appliance off.

To understand whether it has turned off due to intervention by this system, rotate the thermostat switch to maximum temperature (H) to verify that the thermostat has not simply turned the convector off due to having reached the set temperature.

Should the appliance not return to normal operation due to the safety device having intervened:

1. turn the convector off;

2. remove any cause of overheating (e.g. obstacles on the air outlet or intake grille, dust deposits in the appliance, etc.

);

3. leave the appliance to cool for 15 – 20 minutes;

4. turn the convector on again.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CONVECTOR

• Always unplug and leave the convector to cool before cleaning.

• Use a damp cloth to clean the convector exterior and remove dust. Leave the casing to dry before using the convector again.

• Do not allow water to enter the convector.

• Do not use benzene, solvents or abrasive compounds to clean the convector, as these may damage the casing.

• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from the air inlet/outlet grilles.

• Ensure that the convector is dry before inserting the plug.

• Do not use metal tools to clean the convector. Any metal fragments that may detach may come into contact with the panel’s electrical components and cause a short-circuit.

• In the event of malfunctions or damages, always contact an authorised service centre.

STORING THE CONVECTOR

If the convector is not used for prolonged periods, it must be stored together with this manual in its original packaging, in a cool and dry place. Never put the appliance away when still hot. Always wait for it to cool down.
