COMPONENTS

SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE

 Turn off the heater, disconnect the gas supply and allow to completely cool before servicing.

 All LPG appliances should be serviced regularly by a competent person to ensure that it is working correctly.

 All flexible hoses should be regularly inspected for signs of deterioration, cracking etc. and should be replaced if over 5 years old or if they show obvious signs of damage or wear. Hose length 500mm.

 The regulator should be replaced after 10 years service.

VENTILATION

 It is essential that adequate ventilation is provided and maintained in rooms where this heater is being used. The heater must receive an adequate supply of fresh air to run properly. Ensure that any ventilation grills in the room are open and not blocked. If the room becomes stuffy open a window or door immediately.

 DO NOT place the portable heater in a corridor or where it is exposed to strong drafts.

 This heater has an oxygen depletion sensor (ODS). The ODS shuts down the heater if not enough fresh air/oxygen content is available.

 If the heater shuts off, do not relight until you can provide fresh, outside air. If it continues to shut itself off, it must be serviced by a qualified person.

This appliance MUST NOT be used in rooms of less than 32m

2

(square metres).

CARBON MONOXIDE

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a highly poisonous gas which can be produced if the gas heater is not working correctly. It is difficult to recognise as it has no colour, smell or taste.

Symptoms of CO poisoning are:

 Tightness across the forehead.

 Headache.

 Weakness, dizziness, severe headache, nausea, vomiting.

 Intermittent convulsions, coma.

 Depressed heart action, slowed respiration.

 If the exposure has been severe it may cause death.

If your heater has any of the following issues it could be producing carbon monoxide:

 Ceramic burner panels are dull and the gas burns with a blue haze

 There are soot deposits on the burner panels

 The burner panels or cement fixings are damaged.

 The mobile heater does not burn quietly.

If your heater shows any of these signs, switch it off and do not use it again until it has been checked by a qualified person.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURE

In the event of a gas leak or suspected gas leak:

 Extinguish all naked flames and ignition sources.

 Turn off all gas appliances.

 DO NOT switch on or off any electrical equipment.

 Open all doors and windows to increase ventilation.

 Turn off gas supply at cylinder.

 Do not use the portable heater until it has been made safe and tested.

IN THE EVENT OF FIRE

 Call the Fire Brigade immediately and inform them that an LPG cylinder is on the premises.

 Turn off the gas supply if possible and only if it is safe to do so.

PREPARATION FOR USE

WARNING: Keep all objects at least 1 metre from the front, sides and rear of

the appliance.

WARNING: In order to avoid overheating or risk of fire, do not cover the

heater.

WARNING: Never leave this heater unattended when in use.

1. You will require a standard LPG gas bottle up to a maximum size of 10kg.

2. Remove all packaging from your heater.

3. DO NOT fit or remove a gas bottle in the presence of a naked flame.

4. The heater is supplied with a standard regulator designed to supply gas to consuming appliances at a pressure and capacity as indicated on its label. The regulator can be fitted to any cylinders equipped with an outside thread valve having a diameter which is also indicated on the regulator. Gas cylinders must always be used in the upright position. Never use a flame to look for leaks

5. Connecting the Regulator to the gas cylinder Valve. Make sure the taps and the appliance is turned off with the heater’s control placed in the ignition position. Connect the regulator to the LPG cylinder ensuring a good tight connection. Place the regulator on top of the cylinder valve and press firmly downwards. If you encounter any problem with connection, please contact your local gas supplier at once.

6. Switching the gas ON and OFF. When a proper connection has been made between the cylinder and the valve and regulator you may turn on the gas by turning the tap on top of the cylinder in the direction shown on the tap.

7.

The gas is now in the “ON” position and the appliance can be lit (see basic operation).

8. To turn the gas off, turn the gas tap in the opposite direction until tightly closed. The gas is now turned

“OFF” at the cylinder.

9. Never attempt to turn off the gas supply by disconnecting the regulator from the cylinder without first closing the gas tap.

10. Changing the cylinder. Always turn the gas off at the gas tap. Then unscrew the regulator connection.

Locate a full gas cylinder in the unit and carefully reconnect the regulator to the cylinder. Contact your local gas supplier should you have any problems concerning your regulator.

11. Once the gas supply is installed, check for gas leaks. Do this by brushing the connections with detergent.

12. A leak will form bubbles.

13. Smell the area around the appliance for gas.

14. Be sure to smell next to the floor, because some gas is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.

SHOULD YOU FIND A GAS LEAK:

Switch off the cylinders gas tap and disconnect the regulator.

Seek professional advice.

CAUTION! Gas bottles can be heavy! Seek help with lifting if you are unsure of your ability to do so. DO NOT allow the gas supply hose to become trapped or kinked.

Avoid twisting, stretching or excessively bending the flexible gas hose.

BASIC OPERATION

1. Having installed a gas bottle and fitted the retainer, select a suitable position for the heater. It must be placed on a firm level surface, away from any combustible materials (e.g. carpets, curtains and upholstery). Always choose a safe location for the heater keeping in mind the important safeguards detailed in these instructions.

2. Open the cylinder gas tap.

3. Stand to the side of the heater not directly in front.

4. Ensure that the heat selector dial (A) is set to the ignition position.

5. Hold down the control dial and at the same time repeatedly press the ignition button (B) to ignite the pilot light (at the bottom of the burner). Continue to hold the control dial for a few seconds and then release.

If the pilot light goes out, repeat the operation above.

NOTE: When first lighting your heater, it may be necessary to hold down the heat control dial for a longer time to allow gas to flow to the pilot.

5. Once the heat is lit, turn the heat control dial to the desired heat setting: 1-LOW, 2-MEDIUM or 3-HIGH.

6. To turn off the heater, place the cylinder gas tap to the off (closed) position, wait a few seconds then return the heat control dial to the ignition position.

B

A

IMPORTANT! This heater can only be turned off using the gas tap on the cylinder.

The heat control dial cannot turn the heater off. This is a safety feature to ensure all gas in the heater has been used up.

WARNING! If the flame does not completely extinguish (including the pilot light), when the gas is turned off, do not remove the regulator. Return the valve to the open position, leave the heater alight, and contact a competent gas engineer

CLEANING AND STORAGE

 ALWAYS switch off the heater and allow it to cool completely before commencing any kind of cleaning or maintenance operation. Use only a clean, dry or slightly moistened cloth to clean the external surfaces.

Never probe inside or try to disassemble the heater.

Use a vacuum cleaner regularly to remove dust and fluff from the heater grill (F).

 ALWAYS allow the heater to completely cool before storing. Packing the heater in its original carton provides the best protection. Store the heater in a cool and dry location.

 ALWAYS store the heater with the gas cylinder removed.

 Contact your local gas supplier for details of safe storage and transportation of gas cylinders.

IMPORTANT! NEVER COVER THIS HEATER!

Do not attempt to dismantle the Gas Heater. There are no user serviceable parts. For service or repair, contact an authorised gas service technician.
