To bring the heater into use plug it in, the neon indicator light will glow when the appliance is actually heating.

A selector switch/switches provide a choice of half or full heat output to suit varying conditions and for economy of operation.

Thermostat operationThe thermostat has four operational zones as follows

Zone 1 · Provided the heater is set to a heating function, the heater will come on when the surrounding air temperature falls to approx. 5°C. This setting can be used to guard against frosty conditions.

Zone 2 – Provides low heat output on half and full heat setting, giving background heating.Zone 3 – Provides medium heat output on half and full heat setting.Zone 4 – Provides high heat output on half and full heat setting.

Setting the thermostatPlug in the heater and set switches to give full heat output. Turn thermostat knob fully clockwise to high position for maximum heat output to warm the room rapidly. When the room temperature has reached the desired level, turn the thermostat knob back slowly until the thermostat just clicks off and the neon light goes out. The heater will then operate under the control of the thermos tat to maintain the chosen temperature level, provided that the heater is of sufficient size for the room to be heated.

NOTE – Should the heater fail to come on when the thermostat is at a low setting (Zone 2), this may be due to the room temperature being higher than the thermostat setting.

Timer modelsTimer models are fitted with a 24 hour programmable timer enabling the heater to be switched ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ automatically if desired, and a single heat selector switch.

Using the timerThe heater must be connected to the electricity supply for the timer to operate. The switch on the timer controls the electricity supply to the heating elements.

Set the timer by rotating the dial clockwise until the correct time of day is indicated opposite the datum mark. Should the electricity supply to the heater be disconnected it will be necessary to reset the timer to the time of day.


Safety cutout

The heater is fitted with a thermal safety cut-out which will switch off the heat er should it overheat for any reason. If the cut-out operates it is the result of abnormal overheating, and servicing of the appliance by a competent service engineer will be required to ensure the future safe operation of the heater. In this event the manufacturer’s authorized Service Agent should be contacted.

The heater also includes a tilt switch, which ensures that should the heater be accidentally knocked over whilst in use, it will immediately switch off. The heater will resume normal operation once it is righted.

CleaningUnplug the heater and allow to cool before commencing cleaning . The heater can be cleaned by wiping it over with a soft damp, not wet, cloth and then dried. DO NOT use abrasive cleaning powders or detergents as these can damage the surface finish.

StorageIf the radiator is not required for long periods, for example during the summer, it should be stored in a dry place and preferably covered to prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust. The supply cord should be neatly coiled around the handle pull ensuring that the plug does not trail on the floor.
