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. Setting Time 1. Press the ‘PROGRAM’ button ONCE.

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 Cleaning WARNING:ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE CLEANING THE HEATER. Do not use detergents, abrasive cleaning powder or polish of any kind on the body of the heater.
