important safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce risk
of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using this heater.
2. This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surfaces. Use
handle when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows,
bedding, papers, clothes, and curtains at least 3 feet (0,9 m) from the front and top of the heater
and keep them away from the sides and rear.
3. Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used by or near children or invalids and
whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.
4. Always unplug heater when not in use.
5. Do not operate any heater with a damaged cord or plug or after the heater malfunctions,
has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return heater to authorized service
facility for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.
6. Do not use outdoors.
7. This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas and similar indoor locations.
Never locate heater where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.
8. Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or the like.
Arrange cord away from traffic area and where it will not be tripped over.
9. To disconnect heater, turn controls to off, then remove plug from outlet.
10. Connect to properly polarized outlets only.
11. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as this may
cause an electric shock, fire, or damage the heater.
12. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intakes or exhaust in any manner. Do not use on
soft surfaces, like a bed, where openings may become blocked.
13. A heater has hot or arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it in areas where
gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.
14. Use this heater only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
15. To prevent overload and blown fuses, be sure that no other appliance is plugged into the same
outlet (receptacle) or into another outlet (receptacle) wired into the same circuit.
16. It is normal for the heater’s plug and cord to feel warm to the touch. A plug or cord which
becomes hot to the touch or becomes distorted in shape may be a result of a worn electrical
outlet (receptacle). Worn outlets or receptacles should be replaced prior to further use of the
heater. Plugging heater into a worn outlet /receptacle/ may result in overheating of the power
cord or fire.
17. Do not use an extension cord because the extension cord may overheat and cause a risk
of fire. However, if you have to use an extension cord, the cord shall be Ul listed No. 1 4 AWG
minimum size and rated not less than 1 875 watts, ISAMP at 125 V and has to be used only
for supplying power to this heater.
18. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into an appropriate receptacle. Please remember that
receptacles also deteriorate due to aging and continuous use: check periodically if signs
overheating or deformations are evidenced by the plug. Do not use the receptacle and CALL
your electrician.
19. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cable have been damaged in any way
during transportation.
20. Before connecting to electric power outlet, check your electrical power supply. It must be
120 volts A.C. (alternating current). The outlet may be 15 amp. or 20 amp. The circuit must
be of adequate size and must be protected by fuse or circuit breacker. DO NOT place heater
directly beneath electrical receptacle and DO NOT place heater against paper board or low
density fiberboard.
DO NOT touch hot surfaces.
DO NOT immerse cord, plug or heater in water or othet liquid, or pour this will cause
dangerous electrical conditions and potential electrical shock.
DO NOT obstruct the top or bottom air openings.
Dust and lint on the heating element can obstruct the free flow of air. DO NOT operate when
so obstructed.
Operating with air openings obstructed could cause a dangerous condition.
22. Make sure that no pieces of polystyrene or other packaging material have been left into the
appliance. It may be necessary to pass over the appliance with a wacuum cleaner.
23. When switching on the appliance for the first time, allow it to run at full power for about 1
hours to get rid of the unpleasant smell. Make sure that the room in which the appliance is
located is well ventilated during this operation.
24. It is not advisable for the appliance to be positioned where it is exposed to draughts which
might prevent it from working properly.

Operate the heater in upright position only.
Any other position could create hazard situation!
The appliance is fitted with a tilt-swich which turns the appliance off if it should fall over. To
restart the appliance, simply place it upright again.
Place heater on floor beneath coldest window in the room or any desired location. Your heater

or both switches on. Pilot lights will go on, indicating that unit is operating.
To completely shut unit off, both switches must be placed in "0" position
(lights off).
The thermostat operates on room air temperature and not heater temperature. Counter clockwise direction - lower number, lower temperature.
Clockwise direction - higher number, higher temperature.
Switch your heater on as shown in the previous paragraph. When your
room reaches a comfortable temperature, turn thermostat knob back
gradually until you hear a "click" and not further.
Keep thermostat at this temperature, the heater switches on automatically
until the room again reaches the set temperature. Room comfort is thus
maintained with minimum use of electricity.
