READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

BEFORE FIRST USE

Read and follow the instructions in this user manual even if you feel you are familiar with the product, and find a place to keep it handy for future reference.

For your convenience record the complete model number (located on the product identification plate) and the date you received the product, together with your purchase receipt and attach to the warranty and service information. Retain in the event that warranty service is required.

NOTE: The rating of this product (as marked on the product identification plate) is based on specific loading tests. Normal use or the use of other recommended attachments may draw significantly less power.

INSTALLATION & LOCATION

The appliance requires no installation; it should be used solely as a portable appliance.

NOTE: Portable appliances are not suitable for use in a bathroom. The Appliance should be placed with a minimum distance of 1 metre away from flammable objects (e.g. curtains), walls or other structures.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

1. To attach the castors, turn the radiator upside down. Place the castors between the last two panels on either end. Face the wheels up towards you and attach by means of the U-bolt and wing nuts supplied. Slide the U-bolt under the radiator frame and attach to the castor brackets. Refer to figs 1 and 2.

2. On the OIL5 models, note the correct position of the anti-topple castors. The wings on the brackets must be pointing outwards, away from the radiator. Refer to fig.3.

3. Turn the radiator upright before switching on.

Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Fig. 3

OPERATIONS

1. Turn the thermostat in a clockwise direction to the maximum position and set both switches to ON.

The indicator light will glow. This will set the column heater to HI, producing the maximum amount of heat possible and will reduce the amount of time it takes to initially warm up the room. For units fitted with timer, check timer settings as per instructions below. The timer must be set before the unit will operate, or the timer bypass switch must be set to “I” to bypass the timer. NOTE : If the timer bypass switch is set to “O” then the heater will not operate. The Heat switches will not operate.

2. A range of heat settings is available. Switch position I for minimum heat settings (approx 40% max).

Position II for intermediate heat settings (approx 60% max). Position I and II for maximum heat settings. (Position 0 switches the unit OFF)

3. As the room warms up, you may wish to decrease the heat level or simply maintain a comfortable room temperature. To do this, turn the thermostat down to lower number. The heat will cycle on and off to maintain the desired room temperature. Turn one of the heat switches off to conserve the power. This will set the heat elements to low or medium, but will increase the amount of time it takes to reheat. On really cold days this may not be practical, as heat losses can exceed the heat generated by our column heater. Larger rooms and open space areas may also find the medium heat setting ineffective.

You will need to experiment with this column heater to establish the exact setting required for any particular room or space. The table shows power consumption for all switching combinations.

Timer Instructions (ONLY APPLICABLE FOR MODEL NO. HOIL11T)

The timer face consists of a moveable numbered band with moveable pins and a fixed centre plate.

When the moveable pins are slid towards the centre plate the timer is OFF and when slid towards the outer numbered band the timer is ON. Each pin corresponds to 15 minutes operation. A switch is fitted to bypass the timer if required.

1. Rotate the timer dial until the current time is opposite the pointer.

2. Slide the pins corresponding to the required ON time towards the outer numbered band.

3. The pins corresponding to the required OFF time are slid towards the inner band.

4. To operate under timer control, slide the bypass switch to the “ ” position.

5. To bypass the timer, slide the bypass switch to the “I” position.

6. To disconnect power to the heater slide the bypass switch to “O”

EXAMPLE:

Suppose it is now at 7:00AM. Rotate the timer until “7” is opposite to the pointer (i.e. Position A).

For operation between 8:00AM and 3:00PM, slide the bypass switch to “

”, all the pins between “8” and “15” are slid towards the outer band and those between “15” and “8” are slid towards the inner band.

NOTE:

For correct timer operation the radiator must be connected to the power supply and the power switched on.

The second hand will indicate when power is connected.

Tip Over Switch

This radiator is fitted with a safety tip-over which will disconnect the power to the element in the event that the heater is knocked over. If this should occur, the heater should be put upright in the correct position, switched off and allowed to rest for approximately 10mins before being switched on again.

HINTS & TIPS

Do not overheat your home, in winter the temperature of a heated room should be between 18-21°C

Choose the right size heater for the room that you wish to heat.

Zone off the unoccupied rooms by closing doors, and curtains to limit heat loss.

Use draft stoppers where possible, to keep the cold air from filtering in under doors.

Avoid placing items, or sitting too close to the heater for optimal air flow.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

The heater requires regular cleaning to ensure trouble free operation:

Unplug the heater from the mains supply before cleaning.

Ensure that the heater has been allowed to cool before cleaning.
