Operating your Fan 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. This appliance requires no installation, it should be used solely as a portable appliance.

WARNING: Keep all objects at least 1 meter from the front, sides, and rear of the appliance.
WARNING: In order to avoid overheating, do not cover the heater.
WARNING: Never leave this heater unattended.
WARNING: Do not use this heater with a programmer, timer, separate remote-control system, or any other device that switches the heater on automatically.


The control switch positions are:
=FAn Only
“I”=Low Heat
“II” =High Heat

Check that the heat control switch is set to Off position before plugging the heater into the mains supply. For greater economy, use the High Heat setting initially and then switch to the Low Heat setting.
For the Low and High Heat settings the fan remains at the same speed; only the element
changes to create the greater/lesser heat output.


Turn the thermostat knob clockwise until you reach the maximum position on the graduated scale. When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the knob anti-clockwise until the heater turns off (you will hear a click). The heater will now cycle on and off to maintain the set comfort level. Take note of this position setting for future use.


The Fan Heater generates heat during use. Proper precautions must be taken to prevent the risk of burns, scalds, fires, or other damage to persons.


This appliance has three protection devices: The first device will automatically turn the appliance off if the appliance is not in the appropriate operating
The second device automatically disconnects & reconnects power to the appliance at a pre-set temperature.
The third device disconnects the appliance permanently in case of overheating, power spike, or product damage, by means of a thermal fuse (It is nonresettable).


The heater requires regular cleaning to ensure trouble-free operation:
Unplug the heater from the mains supply before cleaning.
Ensure that the heater has been allowed to cool down completely before cleaning.
Use a damp cloth (not wet) to wipe the exterior of the heater to remove dust and dirt.
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and fluff from around the grills.
Never use solutions such as benzene, thinners, or polishing agents.
Ensure the heater is dry before plugging back into the mains supply.
