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.
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.

otherwise the timer clock will stop.
Setting the time of day
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.
6). The 24-hour clock is used ; e.g. time shown for 4 pm is ‘16’ (16:00hrs).
Setting the ‘Auto’ ON and OFF times
To set the timer:
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
I
segment pushed in switches the heater OFF
for that part of the hour. All other segments
will be ON. For example, Fig. 8 shows the
O
timer set to switch the heater ON between
9.00am and 4.00pm and between 9.30pm

On this model with the I / II switch at position I and the turbo switch in it’s
Off position ( neon off ) there is no heat output from the convector. With
the I / II switch still in the I position you can have 1kw output but only with
the turbo boost On (neon on). To get an output of 2kW leave the turbo
switch off and set the I / II switch to position II. (Note 2kw is only possible
with turbo Off). To achieve 3kw output now turn on the turbo switch which
will combine the 2kW setting with a 1kW fan boost setting to give the total
output of 3kw with fan boost.
Note that the fan and the neon on the Turbo switch will cycle on and off
under the control of the thermostat – see ‘Thermostat’.
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.
