Fig. 10 - ‘Auto’ operation 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. 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 Fig. 7 and 7.00am. 2. You can select as many ON periods as you like, within the 24-hour day. The settings will repeat every day until changed. 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. 1 24 23 21 20 19 18 17 16 17 21.30 pm - 16.00 pm 21 20 19 18 17 22 16 23 15 24 14 I 1 13 2 12 3 11 O 4 10 9 8 7 7.00 am - 9.00 am Fig. 8 - see Fig. 10 The turbo fan can be used to circulate the heat around the room to help it reach the desired temperature more quickly.

On all models the switch operates as follows: 22 1 Switching to auto Heat Selector Switch - see Fig. 4a and Fig. 4b DXC30F & DXC30FTi 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.
