Using Your Kambrook Heater
Before First Use
Remove your heater from its carton
and associated protective wrapping.
Unwind the cord to its full length and
remove any protective cardboard
or foam that may have been used
to minimise transportation damage.
Place the heater on a firm, level
surface in a stable upright position.
Visually inspect the air inlet and
outlets to ensure no foreign material is
blocking these areas. The heater must
always be operated with the rear air
filter in position.
Turning Your Heater On
Before turning the heater ON, turn
the thermostat control to the
minimum position, then turn the heat
settings control to the ‘OFF’ position.
Plug the cord into a 230V or 240V
electrical outlet. Be sure the plug
fits tightly as a loose fit will cause
overheating and damage the plug.
NOTE: To avoid an electrical
circuit overload, it is
recommended that no other
appliances are plugged into the
same circuit with your heater
when you switch the unit on.
Turn the thermostat control to the
maximum position, and then turn
the heat settings control to desired
heat setting.
Turning the heat settings control to
setting ‘1’ will set the heater into
low heat mode (900 watts).
Turning the heat settings control to
setting ‘2’ will set the heater to
high heat mode (1800 watts).
Turning the heat settings control to fan
mode is for fan-only operation with
no output of heat.
To turn the heater OFF, turn the heat
settings control to ‘OFF’ position and
variable thermostat control to ‘MIN’
position. This will turn the neon power
indicator light off. Turn off at the power
outlet and remove the plug from the
power outlet.
NOTE: There is a tip-over
switch fitted to this heater. If
the heater is tipped over, it
will automatically turn off. The
heater will need to be placed
back into the upright position
to resume heating again.
Setting the Variable
Thermostat Control
The variable temperature control
can be used to maintain your
desired temperature.
1. To set the desired temperature,
turn the heat setting control to
setting ‘2’ and turn the thermostat
control to the ‘MAX’ position to set
the heater into high heat mode.
2. Once the room temperature feels
comfortable, turn the thermostat
control slowly to the minimal
position until a click sound is
heard. This automatically allows
the thermostat control to remain
at the desired temperature.
3. When the air temperature drops
below the set temperature the
unit will begin heating again.

Safety Features
Safety Tip-Over Cut-Out Switch
There is a tip-over switch fitted
inside the heater. If the heater is
accidentally tipped over, it will
automatically turn off. Once the
heater is placed back into an upright
position, it will resume heating again.
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 until the
unit is fully cooled for the protection
system to rest before attempting to
restart the heater.
If the heater fails to operate or the
safety device switches off again.
Return the heater to your nearest
service centre for examination
or repair.
WARNING: In order to
avoid overheating, DO
NOT COVER the heater

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 halve 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.
Care, Cleaning and Storage
•
Ensure that the heater is switched
OFF, then switched off and
disconnected from the power
outlet before cleaning.
•
Use a clean, dry cloth to clean the
external surfaces of the heater. If
the heater has collected dust or
dirt inside the unit or around the
elements, have the unit cleaned by
a qualified service agent. Do not
operate the heater in this condition.
•
Do not attempt to open the case
of the heater at any time 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.
Fig. 2
It is then necessary to separate the mesh
filter from the filter cover (see Fig 2).
Cleaning the Filter
Your Kambrook Personal Ceramic
Heater comes with a mesh filter located
at the rear of the heater to help keep
dust and debris away from the working
parts. It is recommended to regularly
check your heaters filter for clogging
and dust build up. The filter should be
checked after every use to ensure
heating efficient performance.
Always switch the heater to OFF, then
switch off at the power outlet and
unplug from the power outlet prior to
removing the filter for cleaning.
To access the filter, ensure the heater is
in the upright position and then remove
the filter cover by pulling down on the
two release levers at the top of the
cover and then carefully lift the cover
upwards until it is completely free of the
heater (see Fig 1).
Fig. 2
Once separated, shake both the filter
cover and the mesh filter into a rubbish
receptacle until all fine dust particles
and debris are removed. Wipe over
with a soft, dry cloth if required to
remove particles.
To replace, reinsert the mesh filter to the
filter cover, align the two tabs at the
back of the filter lid with the two holes at
the back of the lid, and then press down
on the cover until it “clicks”.
