When using any electrical appliance, some basic
safety precautions should always be observed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury
to persons. Specifically:
1. Read all instructions carefully before using
the appliance.
2. This appliance gets very hot when in use. To
prevent burns, do not touch hot surfaces
with bare skin. Use the handle when moving
the appliance. Keep all flammable materials,
such as furniture, pillows, bedding, paper,
clothing, and curtains at least 3 feet (90 cm)
from the front and top of the appliance also
avoid contact with the sides and back.
3. The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they have
been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the
4. Always disconnect the plug from the power
outlet when the appliance is not in use.
5. Do not operate the appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after faulty operation, or
when it has been dropped or damaged in
any way. Contact the nearest authorized
service facility for examination, electrical or
mechanical adjustment, or repair.
6. Do not use the appliance outdoors.
7. This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas, or similar indoor locations. Never position the appliance where it
may fall into a bathtub or come in contact with
8. Do not run the power cord under carpeting. Do
not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or the
like. Keep the cord away from any passageways
where it could be tripped over.
9. To completely turn off the appliance, p u s h
the ON/OFF button (A), and then unplug the
10. Do not wrap the cord around the appliance
immediately after use.
11. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to get
into the air intake or air outlet grille, as this
may cause electric shock or fire, or damage
the appliance.
12. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air
intake or air outlet grille in any way. Do not
use the appliance on soft surfaces, such as
beds, where the openings may become
13. Do not cover the appliance while it is functioning in order to avoid overheating and the
risk of fire.
14 The internal parts of the appliance can become
very hot or produce sparks during operation.
Do not use the appliance in areas where gasoline, paints, or other flammable liquids are used
or stored.
15. Use this appliance only as described in this
manual. Any other use not indicated by the
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock,
or injury to persons.
16. To prevent current overload and blown fuses,
make sure that no other appliance is plugged
into the same outlet or into another outlet
wired into the same circuit.
17. It is normal for heater’s plug and cord to feel
warm to the touch. However, an excessively
hot or deformed plug or cord is not normal and
may be the result of a defective electrical
outlet. Defective outlets must be replaced
before using the heater. Plugging the heater
into a worn outlet may result in overheating of
the power cord or may cause the risk of fire.
18. If the supply cord is damaged, to reduce the
risk of malfunction it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, its service agent, or a licensed
and qualified professional.
19. Do not use this appliance with an extension
cord or outlet strip. Connect the appliance
directly to a suitable outlet.
20. Make sure that the plug is fully inserted into
the outlet. Wall outlets may deteriorate with
time, so check the plug periodically for signs
of overheating or deformation. If the outlet
has deteriorated, stop using it and have it
21. Check that neither the appliance nor the
power cord have been damaged during shipping.
22. Make sure that no styrofoam or other packing
materials remain in the appliance.
23. The first time the appliance is used, run it at
the maximum power for at least two hours.
During this time, ventilate the room thoroughly to eliminate the “new” smell released by
the appliance. It is completely normal for the
appliance to emit “creaking” sounds the first
time it is run.
24. CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, make
sure the wide prong of the plug is inserted
in the wide slot of the outlet.
25. Do not place the heater near a bed because
objects such as pillows or blankets can fall
off the bed and be ignited by the heater.
26. Extreme caution is necessary whenever the
heater is left operating unattended.
27. Do not open the appliance. No user-serviceable parts inside.

occured with the use of other appliances.
Additional safety features
1. Overheating protection: a safety device switches
the heater off if it accidentally overheats (e.g. air
intake and outlet grilles obstructed, filter clogged). In
this case remove the plug from the power outlet and
leave it unplugged for a few minutes, eliminate the
cause of overheating, then plug the fan heater back
and turn it on again.
2. Tip over safety switch: a safety tip-over switch turns
the heater off if it tips over or is positioned in an
improper way that could jeopardize safety. The
appliance emits a beep and the display will show a
blinking dot. After the appliance has been restored in
the vertical position it will take just few seconds to
start on again.
Note: To avoid overheating the appliance, do not cover it.
In case “PF” is displayed and a warning sound is emitted,
there is a fault on the temperature sensor. If the problem
persists contact the Service Center.
If the appliance shuts off unexpectedly:
- Check that the appliance is receiving power.
- Check that the appliance is in the vertical position and
on a flat surface, as the safety tip-over switch may
have been tripped.
- Check the temperature set and the timer: the appliance may be off because the set temperature has been
reached or the time set on the timer has elapsed.
