Thermostat (all models)

The thermostat 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 you require, gradually turn the thermostat knob clockwise until the desired temperature is reached. Allow some time between increments for the room temperature to stabilise.

Alternatively to heat a cold room quickly, turn the thermostat knob to the

Max position. When the room has reached the desired temperature, turn the thermostat knob anti-clockwise until the thermostat clicks off. The heater will then automatically maintain this room 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°C to help protect against frosty conditions.

Safety – overheat protection

For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a thermal cut-out. In the event that the product overheats, the cut-out switches the heater off automatically.

To bring the heater back into operation, remove the cause of the overheating, then unplug or turn off the electrical supply to the heater for a few minutes.

When the heater has cooled sufficiently, re-connect and switch on the heater.

Important Notes

Although this heater is manufactured to comply with the relevant safety standards, certain types of carpets could become discoloured by the temperatures under a portable heater. If you are concerned about this, we recommend that you contact the carpet manufacturer for guidance.

Alternatively, either stand the heater on a suitable base to shield the carpet or wall-mount it – call our Helpline for further advice.

You may notice some parts of the element appearing to be hotter from time to time because of the variable airflow through the heater. This does not cause a safety hazard.

The heat outlet grille may become discoloured with use – this is caused by airborne pollution and is not a fault.
