IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:

1. Read all instructions before using this heater.

2. This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surface. If provided, use handles when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes, and curtains at least 3 feet (0.9 m) from the front of the heater and keep them away from the sides and rear.

3. Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used by or near children or invalids and whenever the heater is left operating and unattended.

4. Always unplug heater when not in use.

5. Do not operate any heater with a damaged cord or plug or after the heater malfunctions, has been dropped or damaged in any manner.

Return heater to authorized service facility for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.

6. Do not use outdoors.

7. This heater is not intended for use in bathroom, laundry areas and similar moist indoor locations. Never locate heater where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.

8. Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or the like. Arrange cord away from traffic areas where it will not be tripped over.

4

9. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of shock, this plug is intended to fit only one way in a polarized outlet. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug.

If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. DO NOT attempt to defeat this safety feature.

10. This heater draws 12.5 amps during operation. To prevent overloading a circuit, do not plug the heater into a circuit that already has other appliances working.

11. It is normal for the plug to feel warm to the touch; however, a loose fit between the AC outlet (receptacle) and plug may cause overheating and distortion of the plug. Contact a qualified electrician to replace loose or worn outlet.

12. To disconnect the heater, first set controls to the OFF position, then grip the plug and pull it from the wall outlet. Never pull by the cord.

13. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as this may cause an electric shock or fire, or damage the heater.

14. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intakes or exhaust in any manner. Do not use on soft surfaces, like a bed, where openings may become blocked.

15. A heater has hot and arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use it in the areas where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.

16. Use this heater only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.

17. Avoid the use of an extension cord because the extension cord may overheat and cause a risk of fire. However, if you have to use an extension cord, the cord shall be No. 14 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1875 watts.

18. The output of this heater may vary and its temperature may become intense enough to burn exposed skin. Use of this heater is not recommended for persons with reduced sensitivity to heat or an inability to react to avoid burns.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

SITUATING YOUR TWO ZONE HEATER

Your heater has been designed with a variety of use situations in mind. The two basic uses are:

1. Combined: both heat modules attached to base, used as a single heat source

2. Separated: each heater module in a different position, connected by the interconnect tether

COMBINED

Place the heater where desired, taking careful note of the safety guidelines listed in Section 3 of this manual. Please see the Controlling Your Heater section for further instructions.

SEPARATED

A unique aspect of your Two Zone Heater is the ability to locate the two heater modules in separate locations.

To separate the modules:

To make routing the interconnect cord easier, it can be disconnected from the base unit, and reconnected after you’ve located the module where you want it.

Lift module, pull away from base.

6

CONTROLING YOUR HEATER

Use the power knob to turn the heater on, and select which modules you wish to provide heat.

• Position 1 powers both units.

• Position 2 powers only the right module, and

• Position 3 powers only the left module,

OFF

7

NOTE: When re-attaching the module to the base, you may choose from 3 angles.

The thermostat will allow the heater to maintain a desired temperature.

• Power on the heater and turn the thermostat knob fully clockwise.

• When the desired temperature is reached, slowly turn the knob counterclockwise until a click is heard.

The heater will then cycle on and off to maintain that temperature.

TROUBLESHOOTING

If your heater shuts off unexpectedly, safety features may have been activated to prevent overheating. If this happens:

• Be sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.

• Check your thermostat setting. The unit may simply be off because you have reached your desired heat setting.

• Check for any obstructions. If you find one, turn the heater OFF and unplug it. Wait at least 10 minutes to allow the heater to cool completely before removing any obstruction. When done, plug-in the heater and follow the

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS.
