User Instructions

Safety Warnings:

  • Use only with the voltage specified on the product label.

  • Keep all objects at least 1m away from the front, side or back of the heater.
  • When wall mounted, the following safety distances from surrounding surfaces must be observed: 20cm from the base of the heater to the ground; 80cm from the top of the heater to any ceiling or shelf; 15cm from the sides to non-flammable surfaces, e.g. brick walls; 30cm from the sides to flammable objects and surfaces, e.g. curtains or wooden walls.
  • This product is not suitable for use by persons (including children) with low physical, sensory or mental abilities or lacking experience and knowledge, unless they are supervised or instructed to use the device by a person responsible for their safety.
  • Children should be supervised to make sure they do not play with the appliance.
  • The heater should only be used according to the instructions in this manual. The manufacturer does not recommend and cannot support any other uses, which may cause fire, electric shocks or injury.
  • Do not sit on the appliance.
  • Do not use the appliance to dry clothes.
  • Do not insert or allow any objects into the heater vents as this may cause electric shock, fire or equipment damage.
  • Check for transportation damage and make sure all parts are complete after the appliance is unpacked.
  • Do not use if any parts are missing or damaged.
  •  Do not connect the product to the power supply until fully assembled and adjusted.
  • It is recommended to plug the device directly into a wall socket. Use of extension leads is not recommended because many models do not support high-power appliances. Make sure any extension lead used can safely support the power requirements of the product.
  • Do not use the heater with the power cable wound up – this can cause a dangerous build up of heat. Do not wind or tangle the cable around the appliance as this may cause weakening and splitting of insulation. The power cable should be fully unwound and removed from any storage areas before use.
  • The power cable should not be positioned under the carpet or items of furniture. Do not run the cable where it will be a trip hazard.
  • Do not unplug from the power outlet until the device is turned off.
  • Do not use the power cord to pull the plug from the power outlet. Hold the plug and pull it out.
  • Unplug the appliance when not in use.
  • Make sure your hands are dry before handling the plug or control panel.

  • The product must not be immersed in liquid.
  • Do not place this product directly under a power outlet.
  • The product should only be mounted on smooth, stable, heat resistant surfaces.
  • Do not put the appliance on a bed or long, thick carpet. This can cause the air inlet or outlet to become clogged and constitutes a fire risk.
  • Do not position the appliance near sources of radiant heat.
  • Do not use in areas where petrol, paint or other flammable liquids are used or stored.
  • Do not use the product in closets or other enclosed spaces as this may cause a fire.
  • This product should not be used in places where food, artwork, or delicate scientific objects are stored.
  • The product is for domestic and indoor use only. It is not for commercial or industrial use.
  • The most common cause of overheating is the build-up of dust or fluff within the heater. Prevent this from happening by regularly unplugging the heater and dusting the vents and grilles.
  • If the plug or appliance is dropped, damaged, or malfunctions in any other way, seek out a qualified electrician for inspection and maintenance. If unsure, contact the retailer or manufacturer.
  • Check the power cable regularly. Do not use the heater if the cable is damaged.
