Fit the bottom bracket into the slot in the heater and then fix it to the wall. Test that the heater is now securely fixed to the wall. Positioning the heater Always ensure that the heater is stood on a firm, level base near to, but not directly beneath, a suitable mains supply socket. Ensure that curtains and furniture are not positioned close to the chosen position, as this would create a potential fire hazard. We recommend that the heater should be wall-mounted in rooms where children may be left unattended. See also ‘Important Safety Advice’. 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. Timer Operation Set the I - ¡ - 0 slide switch on the timer Fig. 5 to : Free standing use (all models except DXW200S) Position O – for Heating Off Position I – for Manual operation – This setting allows power to the heater uninterrupted by the timer settings. The heat selector switch will control the output (see ‘Using the heater’). NEVER USE THE HEATER FREE STANDING WITHOUT THE FEET FITTED. Lay the heater on its back, and locate the foot fixing screw (see a. in Fig. 3). Remove the screw using an X–head screwdriver, then align foot over slots and holes in base (see ‘b’ in Fig. 3) and push into slots until the foot clips into place. Position ¡ - for ‘Auto’ operation Fig. 5 Finally take the foot fixing screw, insert and tighten using a screwdriver to secure the foot. Setting the time of day Fig. 3 To set the time of day, rotate the timer dial clockwise (indicated by the arrow) until the correct time of day is opposite the reference mark ► (see Fig. 5). The 24-hour clock is used ; e.g. time shown for 4 pm is ‘16’ (16:00hrs). NOTE – The wall mounting brackets indicated in Fig. 3 can be left secured to the base if they are not required. Using the heater Fig. 6 Switch on at the wall socket. Setting the auto ON and OFF times On models with a neon, the red POWER ON neon will light when the heater is connected to the power supply. To set the timer : The timer clock will operate all the time that the heater is connected to the mains supply. Set the timer control switch as required for OFF, Manual or Automatic operation – see ‘Timer Operation’. On models DX200S , DXW200S & DX300S the heat selector switch positions are as follows : I - Low heat output II - High heat output On model DX300S there is also an On – Off switch - operation as follows : O - Off I - On DO NOT disconnect this heater from the mains supply unless it is being taken out of use (e.g. in summer or for storage), otherwise the timer clock will stop. Fig. 7 1. Using your finger tip or the tip of a pencil, push in as many segments as necessary around the dial, according to the times you don’t require heat – see Fig. 7. Each segment pushed in switches the heater OFF for that part of the hour. All other segments will be ON. For example, Fig. 9 shows the timer set to switch the heater ON between 7 am and 9 am and between 4 pm and 9.30 pm . 2. You can select as many ON periods as you like, within the 24-hour day. The settings will repeat every day until changed. Fig. 4 (Model DX200T , DX300T & DX300TF control shown) 3. To change ON and OFF times, simply push in any ‘ON’ segments you wish to cancel and pull out new ON segments as required. The heat output is controlled by the thermostat - see ‘Thermostat’ Please note – the element has been coated with a protective film which will burn off during the first few minutes of use and may cause a small amount of fuming. This is quite normal – the fumes are non-toxic and will quickly disappear. We recommend that you open a window to ventilate the room when using the heater for the first time. Switching to ‘Auto’ Fig. 8 Controls Thermostat 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, turn the thermostat knob clockwise until the desired temperature 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. Set the heat selector and thermostat for the heat output required. Check that the clock shows the correct time of day. Set the I - ¡ - 0 slide switch to position marked ¡ (see Fig. 8) the convector will switch ON and OFF according to the timer settings (see Fig 9). IMPORTANT NOTES Fig. 9 Remember to observe all safety warnings when operating the heater on auto setting unattended or attended . . If the mains supply to the heater is interrupted, the timer clock will stop until power is restored ; reset the time of day to ensure correct ON and OFF times. Turbo Fan model (DX 300TF) The turbo fan is used to boost the airflow around the room. The fan will circulate the heat around the room to reach the desired temperature more quickly. On this model once power is supplied to the heater & the timer is in an on position the heater can be set to run on 2kW output by setting the turbo switch in its off position ( neon off ). For 3kW output you turn the turbo switch to it’s on position (neon on) to introduce an additional 1kw of heat with fan boost which added to the 2kW setting will give a total output of 3kW with fan boost. ( Note: on this model turbo boost is only possible on 3kW operation). Note: there is no cold blow operation on this model and all heat settings operate under the control of the thermostat.
