• Your heater will work more efficiently if you stick to Kambrook’s recommended clearance spaces

• Choose the right size heater for the room type you want to heat

• Zone off unoccupied rooms by closing doors and only heat the main living areas

• Fit window coverings like curtains to limit winter heat loss

• Put draft stoppers, such as a rolled up towel, at the bottom of outside doorways to keep out cold air

• Keep the heat in and the cold out by installing wall and ceiling insulation.

• Avoid placing items too close to the heater (both at the front and back) for optimal air flow


Using Your Oil Column Heater

Before First Use

Remove any promotional material or packaging from the heater.

The oil heater requires a small amount of assembly before use.

Assembling Your Heater

NOTE: Before operation, please make sure that the castor wheels have been correctly fitted to the castor wheel mounting plate (for

KOH105, KOH105B and KOH107 only) and the castor wheel mounting plate is securely fitted to the body of the oil heater (all models).

Fig. 1

Mounting Bracket Assembly

(all models)

NOTE: Always secure the mounting plate between the last two fins at each end of the oil heater (Fig.2).

Castor Wheel Assembly

(KOH105, KOH105B, KOH107)

1. Unpack the castor wheels from the packaging and remove the nut, spring washer and flat washer from the castor wheel shaft.

2. Unpack the castor wheel mounting plate from the packaging. Feed the castor wheel shaft upwards through the underside of the castor wheel mounting plate, and align the rectangular locator on the base of the castor wheel shaft with the slot on the mounting plate. The castor wheel shaft and mounting plate should fit together snuggly.

3. Replace the flat washer and spring washer back on to the castor wheel shaft, over the top of the mounting bracket and secure tightly with the nut provided. The nut may need to be tightened with a spanner (Fig.1).


NOTE: Make sure that the castor wheels are positioned away from the centre of the heater to provide greater stability (Fig.2).

Fig. 2

1. Place the radiator body upside down on a soft surface to avoid damage to the heater. Make sure it is in a stable position and will not fall.

2. Place the mounting plate onto the base of the oil heater, between the last two fins at each end.

3. Remove the wing nuts provided from the U bolt assembly.

Setting The Heating Mode

All Kambrook oil heaters operate in manual heating mode only, except for the KOH111 and KOH111B models, which can also operate using the programmable timer. To operate using the programmable timer, see the ‘Setting the Programmable Timer’ section.

The oil heater has two switches, offering three heat settings.


4. Hook the U bolt around the body section, joining the last two fins, and feed each end back up through the top of the mounting plate. Secure the U bolt to the mounting plate with the plastic wing nut provided.

5. Repeat at the other end of the heater.

6. Return the unit to an upright position, and it is now ready for use.

Turning Your Heater On

Always place the heater on a firm, level surface in a stable upright position and unwind the cord to its full length.

Ensure the Heat Setting switches are switched to ‘OFF’.

Plug the cord into a 230V or 240V power point and switch on.

NOTE: To avoid an electrical circuit overload, it is recommended that no other appliances are plugged into the same circuit as your heater, when it is in use.

Using Your Oil Column Heater


Setting The Thermostat


Your Kambrook oil heater is fitted with a variable thermostat which is designed to assist you in setting a comfortable room temperature.

Turn the thermostat control knob clockwise to the MAX position. This will ensure that the room heats up as fast as possible.

When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, turn the thermostat control knob slowly in an anti-clockwise direction (towards the MIN position), until a click sound is heard. The oil heater will now continue to cycle on and off, to maintain this room temperature.

Setting the Programmable

Timer (KOH111 and KOH111B models only)

The KOH111/B is fitted with a 24 hour programmable timer, which enables the heater to be set to switch ON and OFF automatically, once a heat setting mode has been selected.

The timer will only work when power is supplied to the unit.

The timer has two settings:

• I – ON, the heater can be used manually;

• – Timer Operation, the heater can be used in the timer mode and will only operate if some of the pins have been engaged.

To activate the timer operation, select the setting on the timer.

Set the current time (using a 24 hour clock) on the timer, by rotating the dial clockwise until the correct time of day is located opposite the arrow.

To set the time you want the heater to turn on, push the red pins outwards and to set the time that you want the heater to switch off, push the pins inwards. Each pin represents a

15 minute period. For example, if you want the heater to operate for 60 minutes at 7pm before switching off again at 8pm, 4 pins will need to be pushed outwards in a row between 19 and 20.

NOTE: The programmed timer can be over ridden at any time by switching the timer back to the ‘I’ (ON, manual) mode.

NOTE: For the heater to operate in ‘Timer’ mode, both the timer needs to be set to the ‘ ’ setting, and pins need to have been moved to the outward position.

ThermoGuard Overheating

Safety Device

Your heater is fitted with a safety device that switches off the heater in the event of overheating. Should this heater stop working, turn off the heater and inspect the air inlet and outlet for blockages. Wait for the heater to cool for the protection system to reset before attempting to restart the heater.


Care and Cleaning

Ensure that the heater is switched off and disconnected from the power point before cleaning.

Use a clean, dry cloth to clean the external surfaces of the heater.

Do not attempt to open up any parts of the heater as there are no customer serviceable parts inside.

When not in use, store the heater

(preferably in its original box) in a cool, clean and dry location.
