Timer models DXC20Ti, DXC30Ti and DXC30FTi can be set to
switch on automatically. Remember to observe all safety
warnings at all times.
Caution: In order to avoid a hazard due to inadvertent resetting
of the thermal cutout, this appliance must not be supplied
through an external switching device, such as a timer, or
connected to a circuit that is regularly switched on and off by
the utility.
This appliance is not intended for use by children or other
persons without assistance or supervision if their physical,
sensory or mental capabilities prevent them from using it
safely. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do

Electrical connection
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 rewireable 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 :
NEUTRAL
BROWN :
LIVE
Connect the GREEN AND YELLOW wire to the terminal marked ‘E’ or by
, or coloured GREEN or GREEN AND YELLOW.
the earth symbol
Connect the BROWN wire to the terminal marked ‘L’ or coloured RED.
Connect the BLUE wire to the terminal marked ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
Wall Mounting
Three identical wall mounting brackets are secured to the base of the
heater with a fixing screw. To wall mount appliance, first remove the
brackets as follows :
Lay the heater on its back.
Following the sequence in Fig. 1 – identify and remove the fixing screw
securing the brackets located beside Mains Cable as shown in (a), then
pull out brackets and rotate them to disengage them from the slot (b).
Withdraw the brackets from the slot (c).

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
On/Off Switch - see Fig. 4a
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’.
On the non-timer models the switch operates as follows:
O The heater is Off
I
The heater operates with heat output as per the heat
selection switch.
Note : The above description of the On/Off switch operation is with the
turbo neon switch in the off position – see also the ‘Turbo Fan model...’
section.
Free standing use
Heat Selector Switch - see Fig. 4a and Fig. 4b
NEVER USE THE HEATER FREE STANDING WITHOUT THE FEET FITTED.
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 the slots. Finally
take the foot fixing screw, insert and tighten using a screwdriver to
secure the foot.
Heat selection is available on all models as an economy feature.
On all models the switch operates as follows:

Plug in and switch on at the wall socket. The mains neon indicator will
glow showing that power is available.
On models with a timer clock, the clock will operate all the time that the
heater is connected to the mains supply, regardless of the setting of the
heat selector switch. Set the timer control switch as required for OFF,
Manual or Automatic operation – see ‘Timer Operations’.
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),
Fig. 6 otherwise the timer clock will stop.
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. 6). The 24-hour clock is used ; e.g. time shown for 4 pm is ‘16’
(16:00hrs).
I
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
O
heater OFF for that part of the hour. All
other segments will be ON. For example,
Fig. 8 shows the timer set to switch the
Fig. 7 heater ON between 9.00am and 4.00pm
and between 9.30pm and 7.00am.
2. You can select as many ON periods as you like, within the 24-hour day.
The settings will repeat every day until changed.
3. To change ON and OFF times, simply push in any ‘ON’ segments you
wish to cancel and pull out new ‘ON’ segments as required.

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

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

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.
Turbo Fan model (DXC30FTi) - see Fig. 10
The turbo fan can be used to circulate
the heat around the room to help it
reach the desired temperature more
quickly.
On this model with the I / II switch at
position I and the turbo switch in it’s
Off position ( neon off ) there is no
heat output from the convector. With
the I / II switch still in the I position
you can have 1kw output but only
with the turbo boost On (neon on).
Turbo
To get an output of 2kW leave the
ON/OFF turbo switch off and set the I / II
Neon
switch to position II. (Note 2kw is only
Switch
possible with turbo Off). To achieve
3kw output now turn on the turbo
Fig. 10 switch which will combine the 2kW
setting with a 1kW fan boost setting
to give the total output of 3kw with fan boost.
Note that the fan and the neon on the Turbo switch will cycle on and off
under the control of the thermostat – see ‘Thermostat’.
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.
Important Notes
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.
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.
