General
The radiator is designed for operation on an AC electricity supply, and is
suitable for use in domestic dwellings and similar indoor locations.
Always ensure that the appliance is stood on a firm, level base near to, but
not directly beneath, a suitable fixed socket outlet.
The radiator is fitted with castors and a handle for ease of movement. Selector
switches provide a choice of heat output and an adjustable thermostat enables
the room temperature to be controlled accordingly. It is supplied with a cord
and plug ready for use. The supply cord should be uncoiled before use (see
‘Storage’). DO NOT pull the radiator along by the mains lead.
Important: The radiator must only be operated with the wheels and castors
fitted and in the upright position as shown in Fig.1 and Fig.3B.
Warning: The heater complies with stringent safety standards but to ensure
efficient operation surfaces of the heater will become hot and contact with
these areas should be avoided, particularly between the fins on the top and
sides. The control panel area is designed to be at a far lower temperature to
allow the safe operation of the controls at any time.
Electrical
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
This heater must be used on an AC~ supply only and the voltage marked on
the heater must correspond to the supply voltage. Do not switch the appliance
on until properly installed. Please read all the safety warnings and operating
instructions before use. If you use this heater in conjunction with a thermal
control, programme controller, timer or any other device which switches the
heater on automatically observe all safety warnings at all times.
Fitting the castors
The castors can only be fitted between the outer fins (as shown in Fig. 2).
Turn the radiator upside down on a carpet or other soft surface to avoid
damage.
WARNING: The radiator is heavy, ensure that it is supported to prevent it
from toppling. Ask a second person to help with this if necessary. Locate
the wire clamps and remove the winged nuts (see ‘C’) in Fig.3A. Insert the
non-threaded end of the wire clamp ‘A’ into one of the holes in the castor
plate ‘B’ as shown in Fig.3A, at the same time tilting the opposite end of the
plate slightly. Lower the castor plate and insert the threaded end of the clamp
through the fins and over the boss and into the other hole in the castor plate.
Place the winged nut ‘C’ on the thread and tighten it securely.
Repeat the process for the other castor bracket onto the last fin.
Note: The 9 and 11 fin column radiator models - use straight castor brackets
and must be fitted as shown in Fig.2.
Lift the radiator clear of the floor, then turn it back upright and stand it on its
castors as shown in Fig.1 and Fig.3B. It is now ready for use.
Positioning the Heater
Select the position for the radiator ensuring there is clearance from any
furniture and fittings of at least 300mm above the heater and 150mm each
side. The radiator should only be operated on a flat stable surface.
Operation
Important: Objects or clothing must not be placed on this heater. Before using
the heater ensure that all warnings and instructions have been read carefully.
To bring the heater into use plug it in. Neon indicating lights located at the
controls area will cycle on and glow when the appliance is heating.
Controls
Thermostat (see Fig.4)
The Thermostat (see Fig.4) controls the heat output according to the room
temperature. This ensures that the heater will not produce heat unnecessarily
when the room is warm. To set the temperature required, turn the thermostat
knob clockwise until the required setting is reached. Alternatively to heat a
cold room quickly, turn the thermostat knob up fully. When the room has
reached the desired temperature, turn the thermostat knob anti-clockwise
until the thermostat just clicks off. The heater will now automatically operate
at this temperature.
The thermostat also has a frost protection setting marked ‘ ’. This setting is
useful in areas such as garages, to prevent frost damage. If the thermostat
is set to its minimum setting ‘ ’, the heater will cycle on and off to maintain
a temperature of approximately 5° to help protect against frost.
Note: Should the heater fail to come on when the thermostat is at a low
setting, this may be due to the room temperature being higher than the
thermostat setting.
Heat Selector Switches (see Fig.5)
Selector switches located on the control panel provide a choice of heat output
to suit varying conditions and for economy of operation.

Digital Timer Operation (see Fig.7)
MPORTANT: Remember to observe all safety warnings when operating the
heater on auto setting, either attended or unattended.
The timer allows you to select ‘AUTO’ or ‘MAN ON’ by pressing the ‘MODE’
button until the required MODE appears at the bottom of the timer display.
‘MAN OFF’ MODE heat is permanently off. This is also the default screen.
‘MAN ON’ MODE allows power to the heater uninterrupted by the program
settings.
‘AUTO DLY’ switches the heater ON and OFF every day according to a set
daily program.
‘AUTO BLK’ switches the heater ON and OFF according to a set of programs
for weekdays only or weekends only.
Initial Operation
Note: Timer Memory Back Up Batteries – Once the heater has been left
plugged in with the socket switched on for at least 72 hours the timer’s
memory back up batteries will be fully charged.
In the event of a power cut or disconnection from the mains, the timer
will continue to function and all programmed settings will be retained
for up to six months providing the timer batteries are fully charged.
If however the timer batteries have not been charged fully, or if the
heater is deprived of power for longer than six months, then the time
and programme settings are likely to be lost and you may therefore need
to reset the time and programme before using the ‘AUTO’ MODE again.
For initial use, plug the heater into a regular household power point and turn
the power on. The timer is now ready to be set up for use.

Safety in use
This appliance incorporates a number of safety devices. In addition to the
‘Important Safety Advice’ section your attention is drawn to the following;
Tilt Switch
The tilt switch will prevent the heater from working if it is accidentally tipped
over on its side. If the radiator is tipped over while it is hot, disconnect the
power and allow it to cool, then stand the radiator back upright. Reconnect
the power - normal operation should be resumed.
Safety Overheat Protection
The heater is fitted with a thermal safety cut-out which will switch off the heater
should it overheat for any reason. If the cut-out operates it is the result of
abnormal overheating, and customer services should be contacted for further
advice - see ‘After Sales Service’.
Storage
If the radiator is not required for long periods, for example during the summer,
it should be stored in a dry place and preferably covered to prevent the
accumulation of dirt and dust. The supply cord should be neatly coiled around
the cable wrap (see Fig. 1) and the plug should be inserted in to the plug pin
holes provided in the cable wrap.
IMPORTANT
Prolonged storage/mains disconnection periods may cause the timer to lose its
programmed settings and may require reprogramming, see initial operation
