IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

THIS HEATER

NOTE: There may be a trace of smoke or odor when unit is first operated. Don’t be alarmed. This indicates that a drop of oil fell on the heating coil during the manufacturing process. It will quickly evaporate and should not recur.

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 crackling sounds when you turn it on for the first time. Do not be alarmed.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

!

The heater must be properly installed before use.

HAZARD OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, EXPLOSION

OR ARC FLASH:

 Apply appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow safe electrical work practices. See NFPA 70.

 A circuit breaker must be installed and serviced only by a certified electrician.

 Always use a properly rated voltage sensing device to confirm that the power is OFF.

The HIGH/LOW switch on the heater is only for setting selection. Use the circuit breaker as the Power

ON/OFF switch for the heater. The circuit breaker is to be installed by a certified electrician and should be located in line-of-sight from the heater location, or it should be capable of being locked in the open position. Follow the operating instructions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, injury, or death.

 To turn on the heater, switch on the circuit breaker.

Then turn the thermostat to the farthest clockwise position. The fan should start, the unit will begin heating the room, and the lamp will light.

After the room reaches a comfortable level, turn the thermostat counterclockwise until the heater shuts off. The heater will cycle automatically around this preset temperature.

To increase the temperature, turn the thermostat knob clockwise. To lower the temperature, turn the thermostat counterclockwise.

 Toggle the HIGH/LOW switch to change the heat setting.

HIGH: 6000W

LOW: 3000W

 Select a thermostat setting.

11

Ambient temperature is regulated by adjusting the thermostat to a desired position. Allow the unit to operate and warm up the room.

When the desired temperature is reached, turn the control knob counterclockwise until the heater turns off. This is your ideal setting.

The heater will start automatically when the room temperature drops below this set point, and will turn off when the set point is reached.

 To turn off the heater, switch off the circuit breaker. The circuit breaker serves as the only means of disconnecting power from the heater.

 This heater includes a visual alarm to warn that parts of the heater are becoming excessively hot. If the alarm flashes, immediately turn the heater OFF and inspect for any objects on, in, or adjacent to the heater that may cause high temperatures.

DO NOT OPERATE THE HEATER WITH THE ALARM

FLASHING. To reset the heater, switch the circuit breaker OFF, and wait five to ten minutes for the unit to cool down before turning the heater on again.

 How to install Wall Thermostat. (DR-001 Not Included.)

1. Install the Thermostat Outlet Box to the wall. Open the knockout on the right.

2. Run line voltage wires to the thermostat location via the knock-out. Connect the wires as below image:

TROUBLESHOOTING

If your heater fails to operate, please follow the procedures below.

This heater is intended to be a ceiling-mounted heater. It has a thermal cut-off protection feature.

If the thermal cut-off protection trips, switch OFF the circuit breaker.

The unit should reset automatically after 10 minutes. If the thermal cut-off protection trips again, consult a certified electrician to determine the reason for overheating.

Problem Probable Cause

Overheat protection has temporarily deactivated the heater.

Solution

Turn the heater OFF.

Switch OFF the circuit breaker.

Wait 10 minutes before turning on the heater.

Unit is not heating

Room temperature has warmed to thermostat setting.

Breaker/Fuse has been tripped.

To increase room temperature, adjust the thermostat control knob to a higher setting.

Check your electrical box to confirm the breaker has not been blown. This might occur if the receptacle is shared between other high-consumption appliances.

Unit produces a burning smell

Check & ensure there are no combustible materials within

0.9 meters (3 feet) surrounding the heater.

A drop of oil fell on the heating coil during the manufacturing process. It will quickly evaporate and should not occur again.

Ensure a minimum clearance of 1ft (12 inches) from both sides, and 4.5 inches from the back.

Remove any combustible items from the heater.

Ensure room containing the heater is well ventilated.

Reposition the heater so there is enough space between the heater and the adjacent walls.
