Appliance description

  • The appliance only warms the air slightly. It is only when it hits objects or the human body that the IR radiation is converted into heat. You will feel the heat after just a few seconds.
  • The appliance therefore provides energy-saving heat, which is available quickly and on-demand at any time.

Operation

  • When the indicator shows stage 0, the appliance is off.
  •  To start the appliance, pull the cord down vertically.
  • The indicator then switches from “0”to “1”. You can select two other heating stages. To do this, pull the cord again for each stage.
  •  To switch the appliance off, keep pulling the cord down until the indicator shows “0” again.

Cleaning, care and maintenance

  • Never spray the appliance with water.
  •  Before cleaning, switch off the appliance and leave it to cool down.
  •  A damp cloth is sufficient for cleaning the casing. Never use abrasive or corrosive cleaning agents! Go over with a soft cloth.
  •  If the reflector is extremely dirty, arrange for it to be cleaned by a heating contractor to retain the full heat radiation of the  .

What to do if  the appliance does not radiate any heat

  •  Keep pulling the cord until you get to stage 0. Then start the appliance (see chapter Operation).
  • Check whether the fuses/MCBs have blown/tripped or are faulty.
