3. Installation

The heater must only be installed and operated on a vertical wall as shown.

Installation below a wall socket is not permissible.

The device plug must be accessible after installation.

It is not permissible to install the device in protection zones as defined in the relevant standards.

In addition, a minimum clearance of 750 mm between inflammable objects e.g. curtains, towels or heat-sensitive plastics, and the front of the unit must be maintained.

The device is mounted to the wall with 3 screws. The enclosed plastic bag contains screws and dowels.

Observe the minimum clearances! Dimensions in mm.

250 300 280



3.1 Mounting Instruction

 Unlock the wall bracket (A) and remove from the device.

Drill mounting holes for the wall bracket and insert the dowels.

Align the wall bracket and firmly screw it onto the wall.

Hang the device on the wall mount.

Pivot down the heater and push into place (B).



4. Electrical Connection

The voltage marked on the type plate must correspond to the supply voltage (A.C supply only).

5. Heating operation

5.1 All Models

The room temperature is regulated using the adjustable thermostat (A). If the rotary knob is set to the lowest setting i.e. to the extreme left (see figure), the thermostat switches the heater on at an ambient temperature of approx. 5°C.



Rooms can become overheated if left unattended whilst being heated; this depends on the size of the room, its heating requirements and the setting of the thermostat. Persons who are not able to vacate the room if the temperature becomes too high can thus be placed in danger.

5.2 Models with 60-minute timer

Turn the timer knob (B) in a clockwise direction. Set the desired time period (up to 60 minutes).

During the time set, the device runs at its full output of

2000 W. The thermostat is deactivated. When the set time has expired, the device switches to a lower

(1000 W) heating level, which is controlled by the thermostat.


The set time can be changed or reversed at any time using the timer knob (B).

5.3 Models with 24-hour timer

The operating hours of the heater can be set in a day program (24 hours) using the timer.

For automatic operation, slide the switch (C) to the right into "clock" position.

Setting the time:

Turn timer (D) clockwise until the marking matches up to the current time.

Heater ON: Slide segments outwards.

Heater OFF: Slide segments inwards.

Each segment represents a switch-on or switch-off time of 20 minutes. In order, for example, to set a switch-on time of one hour, 3 segments are slid outwards.

The timer can be programmed for several ON/

OFF phases of different lengths. The thermostat provides a uniform room temperature during the switch-on time.

Outside of the switching time, no heating operation - and thus no frost protection - takes place.




Manual OFF Timer

Operation via the timer can be deactivated at any time by switching to "Manual" or "0" (OFF).

The timer only runs when the device is connected to the power supply.

6. Protection Against Overheating

If the permissible temperature is exceeded, the heater switches off automatically. If this occurs, pull the mains plug out and leave the device unplugged for a few minutes, so that the temperature limiter can switch back again.

Then remove the cause, e.g. when the air grid is blocked or covered. When the device has cooled sufficiently, it can be started up again.

7. Faults

If the heater does not give off heat, check the following points:

Has the thermostat been set to the desired temperature?

Has the overheat protection been triggered? See chapter 6!

Is the fuse in the fuse box switched on?

Models with 24-hour timer: Set the slide switch and segments correctly - see Chapter 5.3.

If the fault cannot be corrected, please contact a specialist electrical service center or else your nearest after-sales service.

To process your order, please state the production number (E No.) and manufacturing date (FD) of the device. This information is listed on the type plate.

The device must only be repaired or manipulated by a skilled electrician or the after-sales service.

8. Cleaning

To clean the device, first disconnect it from the mains and allow it to cool down. Clean the outside of the unit using a soft, damp cloth. Do not use scouring powder or furniture polish as this may damage the surface.

Dust which gathers inside the device can be removed from the outside using a vacuum cleaner.

9. Warranty

Please contact your local dealer for information on customer service and warranty conditions.

10. Note on Disposal

Do not dispose of the unit with general household waste. The device must be taken to a local waste disposal plant.
