Operating your Heater

Always choose a safe location for the heater, keeping in mind the safety precautions outlined. Ensure all packaging has been removed from the unit before use. Please follow the below instructions.
WARNING: In order to avoid overheating or fire, do not cover the heater.
WARNING: Keep all objects at least 1 metre from the front, sides and rear of the appliance.
WARNING: Do not use this heater with a programmer, separate timer, remotecontrol system or any other device that switches the heater on automatically, since a fire risk exists if the heater is covered or positioned incorrectly.
WARNING: Never leave this heater unattended.
Ensure heater is on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface.
Once the heater is in a safe operating position and all switches are in the off position, insert the power plug into the mains outlet and switch on.
CAUTION: Ensure the power cord is not tight because if pulled it may partially pull the plug from the socket. A partially inserted plug will overheat the plug and
socket and could result in fire.
Note: When the appliance is turned on for the first time, it may release a slight odour or smoke. This odour or smoke is a normal occurrence caused by the initial heating of the internal heating elements and should not occur again.

The timer will flash 3 times before confirming your set countdown time. The timer range is between 1 to 9 hours.
