ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
Check that the voltage on the
rating label of your appliance
corresponds with your house
electricity supply which must
be A.C. (Alternating Current).
If the socket outlets in your
home are not suitable for the
plug supplied with this
appliance, the plug should be
removed and the appropriate
one fitted.
WARNING: The plug
removed from the mains
lead, if severed, must be
destroyed, as a plug with
bared flexible cord is
hazardous if engaged into a
live socket outlet.
Should the fuse in the 13
amp plug require changing, a
3 amp BS1362 fuse must be
fitted.
This appliance does not need
to be earthed. It is a double

BEFORE USE
WARNING: No attempt
should be made to repair
the blanket or have it
repaired locally. The switch
supplied must never be
replaced since the
specialised components
are not generally available.
Before using this appliance,
ensure that the voltage
indicated on the product
corresponds with the mains
voltage in your home. If you
are in any doubt about your
supply, ask your electrical
dealer or local electricity
company.
The fact that this blanket
incorporates the overheat
system does not absolve the
user from observing these
instructions.
WARNING: Do not attempt
to use the blanket with
controls other than those
supplied with the unit as
referred to on the rating
label attached to the
blanket.
WARNING: If you are unsure
about electrical connections,
please contact a qualified
engineer.
It is quite normal for the switch
to become warm as the
components encased are part
of the protection circuit.
SAFEGUARD
OVERHEAT
PROTECTION
SYSTEM
FITTING THE
UNDERBLANKET
TO THE BED
•
NOTE: This product can be
used with any type of
bedding including waterproof
bed protectors.
•
Use only as an underblanket
and do not use above the
occupant of the bed.
•
Activation
The system will remain
dormant indefinitely as long
as the blanket is operating in
the normal temperature
range. If, for any reason, the
blanket is operated in an
abnormal situation or
condition which would
otherwise have induced a
rapid temperature rise high
enough to constitute a
hazard, the OVERHEAT
SYSTEM should intervene by
cutting off the supply current
before the temperature
reaches the point at which
damage may occur.
In the event of the
OVERHEAT SYSTEM
operating, the blanket will
cease to function.

The blanket must be secured
to the mattress in the
following manner. Place the

and mattress.
Make sure the control switch
end is at the head of the bed,
with the connector facing
upwards.

rucked or creased. When in
use, do not cover with
pillows.
