Hints/Tips to Retain Heat in
Your Home
• Don’t overheat your home. The
temperature of a heated room in winter
should be 18-21°C
• 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.
Mounting Bracket Assembly
(all models)
NOTE: Always secure the
mounting plate between the
last two fins at each end of the
oil heater.
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
and KOH107 only) and the
castor wheel mounting plate
is securely fitted to the body of
the oil heater (all models).
Fig. 1
Castor Wheel Assembly
(KOH105 and KOH107)
Unpack the castor wheels from
the packaging and remove the
nut, spring washer and flat washer
from the castor wheel shaft.
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.
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.
NOTE: Make sure that the castor
wheels are positioned away
from the centre of the heater to
provide greater stability.
Fig. 2
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.
Place the mounting plate onto the
base of the oil heater, between
the last two fins at each end.
Setting The Heating Mode
All Kambrook oil heaters operate in
manual heating mode only, except
for the KOH111 which can also
operate using the programmable
timer. To operate the KOH111 using
the programmable timer, see the
‘Setting the Auto-Off Timer’ section.
The oil heater has two switches,
offering three heat settings.
Remove the wing nuts provided
from the U bolt assembly.
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.
Repeat at the other end of
the heater.
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 the ‘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 Auto-Off Timer
(KOH111 only)
The KOH111 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
– 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
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.
