WARNING: do not use the convector with an external controller or any other external 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.

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, use the 4 screws provided with the unit, taking care to ensure that they are located correctly in the bottom ends of the heater side.

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.

Room temperature can be regulated by rotating the thermostat clockwise to increase or anticlockwise to decrease temperature.

When turning the panel on, we recommend turning the thermostat knob to maximum: then, when a pleasant room temperature has been obtained, turn the thermostat dial anticlockwise until the light of the active switch goes out. This way the panel will maintain that room temperature constant.

Only for HI FLOOR DESIGN PLUS, please check the timer switch state: if it is on O, the convector can’t start operating; if it is on the starting time depends on timer setting. If it is on

OPERATING TIMER (HI FLOOR DESIGN PLUS model)

The model HI FAN DESIGN PLUS is also equipped with 24 hours timer, which has 96 segments, each of which corresponds to 15 minutes of time and allows the lighting and working programming of during the 24 hours.

Red switch on - OFF:

The convector doesn’t work or stop working.

Red switch on I - ON:

The convector works continuously, depending only on thermostat regulation.

Red switch on - Timer ON:

It allows you to program the convector on and off timing.

Place the outer ring on the time you want the convector turn on: for example, to set the lighting at 8 p.m. turn the outer ring clockwise until the arrow indicator corresponds to the number 20.

Then set the time the heater is required to run by pulling the segments around the outer ring forward appropriate to the running period(s) required. Whereas every rider is 15 minutes, to

1 set 1 hour move out 4 riders between 20 and 21.

When set, the heater will operate each day during the times programmed. Note, the heater must always be plugged into a power socket, the power selector must be in the on position and the thermostat must be suitably set to ensure the

heater will come on.

The unit will shut off after the set time. During the set, the operation the unit will still be governed also by the thermostat.

N.B.

If you leave the red switch on , the convector will turn on automatically every day at the same time, as long as power supplì is connected, the power selector is not on 0 and the thermostat is a medium position.

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 (max) 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.
