INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE AND CARE

1. Read all instructions before using 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 (0.9m) 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 the heater when not in use.

5. Do not operate the heater with a damaged cord or plug or after the heater malfunctions, or 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.

9. CAUTION: 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. To do so could result in an electric shock hazard.

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. CAUTION : 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 turn 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 surface, such as 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. CAUTION : 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.

19. Do not remove grille guard or allow heater to be operated without grille guard in place.

SAVE THESE IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR EASY REFERENCE.

ELECTRICAL RATINGS

This product is rated 12.5 amps (1500W) at 110~120Volt AC, 60 Hz.

OPERATION

1. Place the heater on a firm level surface free from obstructions, and at least 3 ft. (0.9m) away from any wall or combustible material.

2. With the Selector Knob in the OFF position, Plug the heater power cord directly into a standard grounded 110~120 Volt AC outlet. Always operate the heater in the upright position with the rubber feet on the floor.

3. Rotate wattage selector knob to the “1500W” position. This provides the maximum heat output.

4. Rotate the “ THERMOSTAT” knob clockwise(right) to the “HIGH” setting until the knob stops. The heater should begin heating and the fan should start to blow warm air.

5. Allow the heater to operate until the room temperature reaches the desired level, then slowly rotate the “THERMOSTAT” knob counter-clockwise(left) until the heater cycles off. At this setting, the heater will cycle on and off automatically to maintain this comfort level.

NOTE: Do not force knob beyond its normal stop position. It may be necessary to make minor adjustments to the thermostat to maintain the desired comfort level. Clockwise movement will increase the room temperature. Counter-clockwise movement will decrease room temperature.

6.To conserve energy, the heater may be operated at a lower wattage by rotating control knob to the “ 1300 W” position.

7.

When heater is not needed, rotate control knob to the “OFF” position, remove the plug from outlet, and move heater to safe place for storage.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not expect the heating coils on your heater to glow. Coil elements are normally dark. Air movement over these coils prevents glowing yet provides warm air, similar to forced-air furnace.

Some glow may occur where the moving air does not directly touch the coils.

RESET INSTRUCTIONS
