IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING! When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should
always be taken to minimize the risk of fire, electric shock, personal injury and
property damage. Please adhere to the following precautions and instructions.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE AND CARE
1. Read all instructions carefully before using the heater.
2. This heater is hot while in operation. To avoid injury, never touch a hot
surface. If provided, always use handles to move this heater. Keep all
combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes
and curtains, clear of the heater by at least 3 feet (0.9m).
3. Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used by or near children
and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.
4. Always unplug the heater while not in use.
5. Do not operate the heater with a damaged cord or plug. If the heater
malfunctions, or even has been dropped or damaged in any manner,
return the heater to a service facility for examination, electrical or
mechanical adjustment, or repair.
6. Do not use the heater outdoors.
7. This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas and
similar moist indoor locations. Never place heater where it may fall into a
bathtub or any other water container.
8. Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throws, rugs,
runners or the like. Keep cord away from traffic areas where it can be
tripped over.
9. CAUTION: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). To minimize the risk of shock, this plug is intended
to fit only one way in a polarized outlet. 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,
because it could lead to an electric shock hazard.
10. This heater consumes 12.5 amps during operation. To prevent
overloading a circuit, do not plug the heater into a circuit that already has
other appliances working.
11. CAUTION: It is normal for the plug to feel warm to the touch,
however a loose fit between the AC outlet (receptacle) and plug may
cause overheating and distortion of the plug. Contact a qualified
electrician to replace a loose or worn outlet.
12. To disconnect the heater, first switch the controls to the “O” off position,
then remove the plug from the outlet. Never pull by the cord.
13. Do not insert or allow foreign objects into the outlet grill as this may cause
2
an electric shock or fire, or it could damage the heater.
14. Proper ventilation air must be provided to prevent combustion. Do not use
on soft surface, like a bed, where the outlet grill may become blocked.
15. A heater has hot elements inside. Do not use it in the areas where
gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.
16. Use this heater only as described in this manual. Any other uses not
recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or
personal injury.
17. CAUTION: Using an extension cord may overheat and cause a risk of
fire. However, if you have to use an extension cord, the cord shall be
No.14 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1875 watts.
18. The output of this heater can be intense enough to burn exposed skin.
Use of this heater is not recommended for persons with reduced
sensitivity to heat.

OPERATION
1. Plug into a suitable wall outlet.
a. Never use the heater on uneven or soft surfaces; also, make sure there
are no flammable or easy-deforming objects within 3 feet of the heater.
b. Only plug in the heater after checking the thermostat is in the “MIN”
position and the power switch is in the “O” off position.
c. Do not cover the heater.
d. The heater is suitable for being operated on an A.C. electricity supply
having the same voltage as showed on its rating label.
2. Turn the power switch to the III (1500W) position, and then turn
thermostat switch to the “MAX” position for fast warm-up of a room. Once
the room temperature is comfortable, slowly turn thermostat switch
counter-clockwise until the light of the pilot light is out. The room
temperature will be kept constant. If you want to raise or lower the room
temperature, you can do as follows: Turn the thermostat switch clockwise
(toward “MAX” position) to raise the temperature, or counter-clockwise
(toward “MIN” position) to lower it. You can also turn the power switch
knob to I (600W), II (900W), and III (1500W) for different heat settings.
NOTES:
1. The pilot light will be on only if the room temperature is below the set
value of the thermostat.
2. Oil-filled radiating flanges do not need to be re-filled.
After using, turn the power switch to the “O” off position and then turn the
thermostat to the “MIN” position and unplug the cord.
