Product Layout

Before first using the heater, it is important that you read and follow the instructions in this user manual, even if you feel you are familiar with this type of appliance.

The oil heater is easy and safe to use. It has been designed to function quietly and safely under normal circumstances. Read all instructions to ensure safe and efficient use.


The columns or fins are filled with a special oil that conducts heat to the metal surfaces. These in turn warm the air around them, which will then gently and silently heat the room. Be aware that they work under pressure as the oil inside heats up.

Features and Operation


The oil filled heater is heavy, which is why castors are supplied with the product. To reduce packaging, they have been placed unassembled in the carton.

Firstly, attach the supplied wheels to the brackets by simply pushing the wheel thread through the holes provided, then tighten the nuts to secure each wheel. Refer to the diagram below, which shows how to securely attach the castor brackets to the oil heater, so it can be wheeled from room to room. The brackets are designed to prevent the fins from touching walls.

Attaching these brackets is the only time that you should ever turn the oil filled heater on its side or upside-down. After attaching the castor brackets, wait for at least 15 minutes (preferably 30 minutes) for the oil in each column to settle back into position. Place one of the two U-bolts supplied into the castor bracket (see Fig 1).

Position the castor bracket between the first and second columns, then slide the U-bolt through the middle (see Fig 2).

Turn the U-bolt so that the threaded end is pointing vertically into the air (see Fig 3).

Ensure the castors are aligned horizontally, then tighten the wing nuts. The wing nuts can be tightened securely without the use of a tool (see Fig 4).

After attaching the castors and placing the heater back in the upright position, wait for at least 15 minutes for the oil to settle before using the heater.

Heat Setting

When you turn the heater on, you can set the heat switches to Low, Medium or High. You can then turn the thermostat up as high as it will go. This will set the oil heater to the highest performance setting, producing the maximum amount of heat possible and reducing the amount of time it takes to warm up a room.

Note that the indicator light will be stay on at all times unless the heater is unplugged or turned over during use.

As the room warms up, you may wish to decrease the heat level to maintain a comfortable room temperature. To do this, turn the thermostat down to a lower setting. The heater will cycle on and off to maintain the desired room temperature. Over time through experimentation, you will establish the settings required to comfortably heat your particular room or space.

Cord Tidy

When the heater is not in use, place the cord in the cord tidy. This will provide a safe and convenient storage solution. Always ensure the cord is completely removed from the cord tidy and uncoiled before the next use.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the use of this product, please contact the Kogan.com customer support team.
