SAFETY AND WARNINGS

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO ASSEMBLE,

INSTALL, OPERATE OR MAINTAIN THE PRODUCT DESCRIBED.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS BY OBSERVING ALL

SAFETY INFORMATION. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH

INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY AND/OR

PROPERTY DAMAGE!

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR REFERENCE.

NOTE: When switching on the appliance for the first time, allow it to run at full power for approximately two hours to get rid of the unpleasant odour. Make sure that the room in which the appliance is located is well ventilated during this operation. It is normal for the appliance to emit small cracking sounds when you turn it on the first time. Do not be alarmed.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons or property, 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 handles when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes and curtains at least 3' (0.9 m) from the front and top of the heater and keep them away from the sides and rear. Keep the rear grille away from walls or drapes so as not to block the air intake.

3. Extreme caution and supervision is necessary when any heater is used by or near children or pets, and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.

4. Always unplug heater when not in use.

5. Do not operate heater with a damaged cord or plug or after the heater malfunctions, or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Discard heater or return to an authorized service facility for examination and/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. Do not route cord under furniture or appliances. Arrange cord away from traffic area and where it will not be tripped over.

9. To disconnect the heater, turn control to OFF, then remove the plug from the 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 to the heater.

81603-01 R20140228

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, injury to persons, or other damage to property.

14. Ensure the heater is on a stable, secure surface to eliminate the potential of tipping it over.

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. 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. Always plug heaters directly into a wall outlet/receptacle. Never use with an extension cord or relocatable power tap (outlet/power strip).

18. Check your heater cord and plug connections. A loose fitting outlet can cause the plug to overheat or cause a fire. Be sure plug fits tight in the outlet. Check frequently during use to make sure plug and outlet are not hot. If so, discontinue using heater and have outlet replaced by a qualified electrician.

19. Note: Heaters draw more current than small appliances, overheating of the outlet may occur even if it has not occurred with the other appliances.

20. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cable has been damaged in any way during transportation.

21. Make sure that no pieces of polystyrene or other packaging material have been left between elements of the appliance. It may be necessary to clean the appliance.

22. Connect to properly polarized outlets only.

23. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH

WIDE BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY INSERT.

DANGER-HIGH TEMPERATURES MAY BE GENERATED

UNDER CERTAIN ABNORMAL CONDITION. DO NOT

PARTIALLY OR FULLY COVER OR OBSTRUCT THE

FRONT OF THIS HEATER.

FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Operation

1. Place the heater on a firm, level surface, after assembling per this manual. Plastic or rubber tabs, like the feet on this unit, may stick to furniture surfaces and/or hardwood floors. The unit may leave a residue that could darken, stain or leave permanent blemishes on the finish of certain furniture surfaces, including wood surfaces, and/or hardwood floors.

2. Plug the cord set into a 120 volt AC outlet. Be sure that the

plug fits tightly into outlet. When plugs fit loosely into receptacles, they may slip partially or completely out of the receptacle with only the slight movement of the attached cord.

Receptacles in this condition may overheat and pose a serious fire hazard; if covered by a curtain or drape, the fire hazard is even greater.

3. When the heater is initially plugged in, there will be a "beep" and the Power Light will come on indicating that there is power to the unit. The Power Light will remain lit until the heater is unplugged from the electrical outlet. (Figure 2)
