IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the 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. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes, and curtains at least

3 feet (0.9 m) from the front 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 similar coverings. 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. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as this may cause an electric shock or fire, or damage the heater.

11. 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.

12. A heater has hot and arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it in areas where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.

13. 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.

14. Avoid the use of 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 16 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1,500 watts.

15. The output of this heater may vary and its temperature may become intense enough to burn exposed skin. Use of this heater is not recommended for persons with reduced sensitivity to heat or an inability to react to avoid burns.

16. Heater service must be performed only by an authorized service representative.

Service or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of fire or injury.

17. Do not abuse the Power Cord. Never use the

Power Cord to carry this heater or pull the Plug from an outlet. Keep the Power Cord away from heat, oil, or sharp edges. Replace damaged

Power Cords immediately. Damaged Power

Cords increase the risk of electric shock.

18. Disconnect the Power Cord Plug from the power source and allow the heater to thoroughly cool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing this heater. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of burns.

19. When servicing this heater, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the

“Inspection, Maintenance, and Cleaning” section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow maintenance instructions may create a risk of electric shock or injury.

20. People with pacemakers should consult their physician(s) before use. Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to heart pacemaker could cause pacemaker interference or pacemaker failure.

21. WARNING: Handling the cord on this product will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of

California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

(California Health & Safety Code § 25249.5, et seq.)

22. The warnings, precautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood by the operator that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Grounding

TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK AND DEATH FROM

INCORRECT GROUNDING WIRE CONNECTION:

Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.

Do not modify the power cord plug provided with the tool. Never remove the grounding prong from the plug. Do not use the tool if the power cord or plug is damaged. If damaged, have it repaired by a service facility before use. If the plug will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Grounded Tools: Tools with Three Prong Plugs

3-Prong Plug and Outlet

1. Tools marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and three prong grounding plug. The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet.

If the tool should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away from the user, reducing the risk of electric shock. (See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)

2. The grounding prong in the plug is connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system in the tool. The green wire in the cord must be the only wire connected to the tool’s grounding system and must never be attached to an electrically

“live” terminal. (See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)

3. The tool must be plugged into an appropriate outlet, properly installed and grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. The plug and outlet should look like those in the preceding illustration.

(See 3-Prong Plug and Outlet.)

Page 4 For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797.

Item 61796

Extension Cords

1. Grounded tools require a three wire extension cord.

Double Insulated tools can use either a two or three wire extension cord.

2. As the distance from the supply outlet increases, you must use a heavier gauge extension cord.

Using extension cords with inadequately sized wire causes a serious drop in voltage, resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage. (See Table A.)

3. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord. For example, a 14 gauge cord can carry a higher current than a 16 gauge cord. (See Table A.)

4. When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length, make sure each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required. (See Table A.)

5. If you are using one extension cord for more than one tool, add the nameplate amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum cord size. (See Table A.)

6. If you are using an extension cord outdoors, make sure it is marked with the suffix “W-A” (“W” in

Canada) to indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.

7. Make sure the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified electrician before using it.

8. Protect the extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or wet areas.

Troubleshooting

If the heater does not operate: a. Make sure that the heater is plugged in.

b. Ensure that the outlet used is powered and that the circuit breaker is not tripped.

c. Avoid the use of an extension cord. However, if you have to use an extension cord, the cord shall be No. 16 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1500 watts.

d. Check for any obstruction in the heater’s vents.

If an obstruction is found, unplug the heater and wait for it to cool completely.

Then, carefully remove the obstruction.

e. Make sure the heater is placed on an even surface. Uneven surfaces may activate the heater’s tip-over switch, which turns the heater off.

If the above remedies do not solve the problem, take the heater to a qualified service technician for diagnosis and repair.
