same outlet recep) or into another outlet (receptacle) wired info the same circuit.
18. It is normal for the s plug and cord to feel warm to the touch. A plug or cord which becomes hot
fo the touch or becomes distorted in shape may be a result of a wom electrical outlet. Wom outlets or
receptades should be replaced prior fo further use of the heater. Plugging heater into a wom outlet
/ receptade/ may result in overheating of the power cord or fire.
19. Do not use an extension cord because it may overheat and cause a risk of fire. However, if you have

1875 watts, and has to be used only for supplying power fo this heater.
20. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted ape po Please remember that outlets also deterio-
rate due to aging and continuous use: periodically if signs overhedtfing or deformations are evi-
denced by the plug. Do not use the outlet and CALL your electrician.
21. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cable have been damaged in any way
during transportation.
22. Make sure that no pieces of polystyrene or other packaging material have been left
between one element of the appliance and another. It may be necessary to pass over the
appliance with a vacuum cleaner.
23. When switching on the appliance for the first time, allow it to run at full for about two
hours to get rid of the unpleasant smell. 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 for the first time.
N own a
Remove the feet and the wheels from the polystyrene packing. Turn the radiator upside-
down on a rug or a soft surface in order to prevent damaging the paint finish.
Fit the wheels to the spindles on the feet and push firmly until they click into position.
Pull each wheel to check that it is correctly inserted.
The feet with the casters must be fitted with two arc-shaped brackets and fit them
using the threaded bar and ad nut provided, only between the 1st and 2nd ele-
ment and the second to last (see fig. 1 to 3 inclusive).

| fig. 3
Turn the radiator upside-down on a НН a soft surface in order to prevent damaging
the paint finish. Fully unfold the castors by turning them outwards (Fig. 4).
Turn the radiator back to its upright position.
Always operate the heater in upright position only (wheels on the bottom, controls on
top). Any other position could create hazardous situation!
ON/OFF Switches
Fa) |
600 700
For more economical use, the Min. or Med. Watt
switches may be used individually, after unit has
reached the operating temperature.
With pilot lights ON, the heater is ON!
Place heater on the floor beneath the coldest window in the room, or any other location. Your hea-
ter will reduce the effect of cold drafts.
The heater should not be placed immediately below a power outlet.
Do not use this radiator in rooms with a floor area of less than 43 square feet (4 sq. m.).
The radiator should be connected to a properly polarized A/C 110/120 V household outlet in
perfect working conditions.
Keep loose clothing or bedding, furniture and flammable material away from the heater’s wall
Turn the thermostat clockwise to its maximum position. Push down both switches. The switch lights
stay on independently of the thermostat cycling. When room reaches the desired temperature, turn
the thermostat knob counter-clockwise very slowly and carefully until you hear a click. This should
set your heater to maintain the desired temperature by cycling on and off as required. (For timer
instructions, see paragraph 5.)
Note: The heater normally requires about 15 minutes to reach the desired temperature.
The thermostat operates according to room air temperature, rather than radiator temperature.
Turning it counter-clockwise to smaller numbers would decrease the temperature; clockwise to
greater numbers would increase the temperature.
Antifreeze function
Turn the thermostat dial to the À position and push the switches on. The appliance will maintain a
minimum room temperature of approximately 42°F (5°C), thus preventing freezing while conser-
ving energy. In models that come with a timer, tabs must be set in the inward position.
To completely shut the heater off, ON/OFF switches must be set in the OFF position.
Clock setting
The program/timer, as with all clocks, must be set to the correct time. If for example the time is
9.30 a.m. (day zone), rotate the dial clockwise (following the direction of the arrow) until 9.30 is
aligned with the triangular pointer.
The timer is in effect an electric clock and would only work while it is plugged into a power supply.
When unplugged, the timer stops and must be later re-set.
Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other). There is only one way it can be plugged into a power supply. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try again by turning it the
other way. If it would still not go in, it is probably due to an obsolete outlet which should be
replaced. Do not temper with the plug or outlet to defeat the purpose of this safety mechanism.
Please refer to the illustration below:
IMPORTANT: There are 96 tabs around the dial. Each tab represents a 1/4 hour (15 minutes) and
there is a tab for each quarter hour of the day (24 hours). Your appliance can be programmed to
switch itself ON and OFF at the time of your choice. With a timer you can approximate your set-
ting fo within 15 minutes and program up to 48 cycles (1 cycle = 1 “ON” + 1 “OFF”) over a
period of 24 hours (12 hours a.m.+12 hours p.m.).
The tabs can be pushed inwards or pulled outwards simply by using your fingers. When a tab is in
the inward position (towards the center of the dial), the heater will be on during the corresponding
15 minute period. If a tab is in the outward position, the heater will be off during that period.
Please note that when you first use your heater all the tabs are out. You must push in the tabs that
correspond to the period when you want the heater to be on. (If you want to bypass the timer you
must push all 96 tabs inward.)
Timer operation
A) Plug in the heater.
B) Turn timer dial clockwise to set clock with the current time of day (see CLOCK SETTING).
C) Push tabs inwards for the period you want the heater to operate. For example, in the shown
illustration, the heater will operate from 14.00 (2 p.m.) to 16.30 (4.30 p.m.) and from 4.45
a.m. fo 5 a.m.
D} Push switch(-es) in.
E) Once you have set the tabs for the desired heating periods, your heater will cycle on and off
according to these settings.
F) As long as you keep the heater plugged in, the timer will maintain the proper time.
A safety device

a soft damp cloth; do not use detergents and abrasives.
Should the radiator not be in use over a certain length of time, roll the cable around the holder
and store it in a dry place (see fig. on front page).
This appliance has been built to last for many years of trouble-free service.
