Heat Control

Ensure the heater has power available by turning it on at the isolation switch.  Pull the pull-
cord to start the heater.  The neon indicator will come on showing the heater is in operation.
Pull the pull-cord again to turn the heater off.

Automatic Step-down Heat
When the room reaches a pre-set temperature, the heater will automatically step-down and
reduce the heat output and save power.  If the room cools down, the heater will automatically
step-up and increase the heat output.

Overheat protection
The heater will turn itself off automatically in the event of overheating. The most common
cause of overheating is deposits of dust or fluff entering the appliance.  Ensure these deposits
are removed regularly by cleaning the inlet and outlet grilles. The heater will re-set automatically
when it has cooled down enough.



The heater requires regular cleaning to ensure trouble free operation:

Turn the isolation switch off.  For added protection, also turn the mains supply off.

Use a damp cloth to clean the exterior of the heater. Do not use abrasive cleaning products
on this appliance.

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and fluff from the inlet and outlet grilles.

Ensure the heater is dry before turning the mains supply to the heater on.


Do not attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical functions on this unit. Doing
so will void the warranty.  Contact a qualified electrical person to service the heater.
