Control Panel




Traditional fans will move air that is directly in contact with them, pulling air from behind to the front, with the benefit of cooling being felt only when directly facing you. Usually, traditional fans are only used during the warmer months. Air circulators on the other hand, work to keep all air in a room in motion, moving around constantly and creating an air circulation pattern that will make the whole room more comfortable. By using a 3D air circulation, your Breville air circulator ensures constant movement of the air in the room, reducing cold and warm spots that are found in many rooms. By circulating both stale indoor air and fresh outdoor air (from open windows), Breville air circulators also work on improving ventilation.

The Breville air circulator is perfect to use all year round, as it regulates temperature, clears stuffy air, and creates a safe environment for the whole family.

WHERE TO POSITION YOUR AIR CIRCULATOR?WARMER MONTHS:Cool air tends to sink to the floor. During warm weather, point the air circulator facing towards a wall on high speed. angled  halfway between the ceiling and floor. The circulator will efficiently cool the room down by forcing the cool air to move, creating air circulation patterns. When using an air conditioner, point the air circulator from the back of the room towards the bottom of the air conditioner at a 30° angle to intensify the cool air and distribute the cool air faster and more efficiently around the room. Use the horizontal oscillation for even better distribution.

COOLER MONTHS:Warm air naturally rises towards the ceiling. When using a heater, the warm air produced will move up. Point the air circulator up at a 90° angle. By pointing the air circulator upwards, the hot air will circulate with the cooler air near the floor, resulting in better distribution of room temperature.


BEFORE FIRST USEBefore using your Breville air circulator for the first time, remove all packaging material and promotional labels.


  1. Place the air circulator on a flat surface. Use the Where to Position Your Air Circulator section in this booklet for positioning depending on requirements.
  2. Insert the power plug into a 230V or 240V power outlet and switch the outlet on. The LED display will illuminate to display the current room temperature. The air circulator is now on standby mode.
  3. Touch the button to turn the air circulator on. The air circulator will automatically start on NORMAL mode at fan speed 1.

NOTE: To return to standby mode at any time during operation, touch the button.CAUTION: Never insert fingers, pencils or any other objects through the guards whenever the power plug is connected, in particular while the air circulator is switched on.NOTE: The air circulator is fitted with a power saving feature. The LED display will dim after 15 seconds if any of the operating buttons on the control panel are not touched. The lights will illuminate brighter once any of the operating buttons on the control panel are touched.NOTE: To avoid infrared interference that may trigger the operation of the air circulator, ensure the air circulator is positioned away from other infrared remote-controlled appliances.


Your Breville Air Circulator is fitted with a temperature sensor that detects the room temperature and reports it through the LED display. The figure displayed is only an indication of the room temperature and will vary depending on the location of the air circulator in the room. The LED display screen will cycle to show the ambient temperature and the setting under any selected mode.


MODEThis Breville AirActive 3D™ Connect air circulator has 3 modes: NORMAL, NATURAL and SMART ECO. The air circulator will start automatically on NORMAL mode on speed 1 once it is switched on. To choose between these modes: touch the button until the light illuminates next to the selected mode; NATURAL or SMART ECO.

NORMAL MODENORMAL mode has 3 fan speed settings; setting 1 for low speed, setting 2 for medium speed and setting 3 for high speed. To choose a circulator speed setting, touch the button until the desired speed flashes on the LED display and the speed will adjust automatically. NORMAL mode is the default mode settings for this air circulator. In NORMAL mode, none of the lights next to NATURAL or SMART ECO illuminate on the control panel.

Continuous air flow can create a chilling effect on the skin and a discomfort when exposed for too long. NATURAL mode generates a gentle breeze to maintain body temperature, by simulating wind blowing rhythm, automatically alternating wind speeds according to pre-programed cycles. NATURAL mode has 3 variations. When the air circulator is on, to activate NATURAL mode, touch the button until the light illuminates next to the NATURAL mode on the control panel and the default NATURAL cycle program 1 (n1) displays on the LED display. The fan speed will operate automatically according to the natural cycle 1 (n1) program.

To select NATURAL cycle program 2 (n2) and NATURAL cycle program 3 (n3), touch the button once or twice and ‘n2’ and ‘n3’ will display respectively. To stop NATURAL mode and return to NORMAL mode, touch the button until no lights illuminate next to NATURAL and SMART ECO buttons on the control panel. Diagram showing NATURAL cycle programs:


SMART ECO mode will automatically adjust the fan speed depending on the ambient temperature. This program delivers the optimal cycle to save energy and operate quietly and efficiently, when possible. SMART ECO mode is ideal to use during sleep or to be left on for a long period of time. When the air circulator is on, to activate SMART ECO mode, touch the button until the light illuminates next to the SMART ECO mode on the control panel. The air circulator will automatically adjust the fan speed based on the following programmed rules.

Ambient T (°C) Air circulator speed
< 26 Speed 1
26 – 28 Cycle between speed 1 and speed 2. Operation for

7.5 secs on each speed.

29 – 34 Cycle between speed 2 and speed 3. Operation for

7.5 secs on each speed.

> 35 Speed 3

NOTE:Fan speed in this mode cannot be manually adjusted. To stop SMART ECO mode and return to NORMAL mode, touch the button untilno lights illuminate next to NATURAL and SMART ECO modes.


This Breville air circulator comes with an 8-hour auto-off timer that can be set in 1 hour intervals and switches fan to standby mode after the set number of hours has elapsed. The AUTO-OFF TIMER can be set on any MODE. To set the timer, touch the button repeatedly until the desired number of hours is displayed on the LED display and a green light illuminates above the TIMER button on the control panel. The auto-off timer will start on the selected mode, and the mode will stop automatically once the auto-off timer has expired.

The LED display will display the set circulator mode setting once the auto-off timer begins. To check the pre-set time left on the LED display, touch the button once. To cancel the auto-off time anytime once set, touch the button until ‘0H’ is displayed on the LED display screen and the green light above the TIMER button no longer illuminate within a few seconds.NOTE:

  • To run the air circulator continuously, do not set the timer or set the timer to ‘0H’.
  • All modes can be adjusted at any time after the timer is set.
  • The air circulator will stop and switch to standby mode once the set time has elapsed.

OSCILLATION AND 3D AIR CIRCULATIONThe Breville air circulator can oscillate automatically left and right and up and down. The oscillations can be set on any MODE. To activate the left and right oscillation, touch the button once. The air circulator will move left and right continuously. To activate the up and down oscillation, touch the button once. The air circulator will start to move up and down continuously. To achieve 3D air circulation, activate both horizontal and vertical oscillations. This will set a unique air circulation pattern. To set the orientation of your air circulator, touch the respective oscillation button again. The air oscillator will stay at your preferred position. When the air circulator is turned off, the oscillation will return to its initial position automatically.


The Breville air circulator comes with a remote control. This remote control features the same buttons as the control panel (except the Wi-Fi function) on the air circulator and can be used the same way. To avoid misplacing the remote control, place the remote control on the right side of the air circulator frame with the remote control symbol. The remote control includes 1 x CR2032 3V Lithium battery. This Lithium battery is protected by an isolating slip.
