Do not install the appliance if there is any sign of damage, especially to the power cable or grille.

Do not locate the heater immediately below a socket.

The body of the heater can get very hot during usage, ensure the power cable cannot contact with it following installation.

Do not use this heater with a programmer, timer, separate remote-control system or any other device that switches the heater on automatically, since a fire risk exists if the heater is covered or positioned incorrectly.

Ensure that any combustible materials such as curtains, paper, clothing, furniture etc. are kept away at a minimum distance of 1.8m from all surfaces of the heater.

Do not install the heater in explosive or combustible environments.

The grille of this heater is intended to prevent direct access to heating elements and must be in place when the heater is in use.

The appliance is not intended for use by any persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the safe use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.

Children of less than 3 years should be kept away unless continuously supervised.

2. Electrical Connection

This appliance must only be connected to a power supply that corresponds to the rating label specifications.

If the appliance is connected to the fixed wiring of the property, the electrical installation should be carried out in accordance with the latest IET wiring regulations.

Do not use the appliance with an extension cable.

• The steady state current of the heater is 6.5 A but an initial inrush current of many times this value will occur when turned on from cold, for this reason a MCB type 3 is recommended to avoid false tripping.

• The heater is supplied with 1.8 m of heat resistant cable and a 13 amp BS plug. When the heater is connected outside, a weather proof socket is strongly recommended.

• If the heater is connected to the fixed wiring of a property, connection should be made as follows; -

Green/Yellow earth wire to terminal marked “E” or

Brown/Red live wire to the terminal marked “L”

Blue neutral wire to the terminal marked “N”



3. Cleaning and Maintenance

When replacing the lamp, the unit should be safely disconnected from the electrical supply and removed from the wall so it can be performed on a safe flat surface. Always ensure the heater has fully cooled before handling it.

Never handle the glass part of the lamp with bare hands, fingerprints will cause the lamp to burn at this point and seriously impair the lifespan. To remove marks, use a soft cloth and methylated spirits or alcohol.

• With the unit on a safe flat surface, proceed to remove the hinged bracket 1. and wiring box 2. from the main body of the unit 3.

• Remove both side panels from the unit 1. and slide both back panels away and out from the main chassis 2.


• Remove the live and neutral lamp connections from the terminal block located inside the wiring box.

• Remove the front guard by gently sliding out from either end of the heater 1.

• Remove the lamp from the heater by lifting it out of its holders and clear of the heater.

Feed the lamp cables out of the holes to complete the lamp removal 1.
