Do not use this heater in the immediate surroundings of a bath, a shower or swimming pool IMPORTANT - If the heater is installed in a room containing a bath or shower, in accordance with the current wiring regulations BS7671, minimum clearances and IP zone requirements must be adhered to, including protections via RCD. Heaters used in these settings must be connected to the fabric wiring of the building via a suitable connection/isolation device.

    WARNING - In order to avoid overheating, do not cover or obstruct the heater. Do not place material or garments on the heater, or obstruct the air circulation around the heater, for instance by curtains or furniture, as this could cause overheating and a fire risk. NEVER cover or obstruct in any way the heat outlet slots at the top of the heater or the air inlet slots in the base of the heater.

    The heater carries a warning ‘DO NOT COVER’ to alert the user to the risk of fire that exists if the heater is accidentally covered.


  • IMPORTANT - Remember to observe all safety warnings and precautions when operating the heater on the automatic or timer modes, either attended or unattended.

    Note that due care and consideration must be taken when using this heater in series with the built-in thermal control, program controller, timer or any other device that switches on the heat automatically, since a fire risk exists when the heater is accidentally covered or displaced.

    WARNING - This heater must be earthed The electrical installation must be carried out by a suitable qualified or trained electrician, and be in strict accordance with the current wiring Regulations BS7671 for Electrical Equipment in Buildings. The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:


    The heater is fitted with a length of flexible cable type H05VV-F size 3 x 1.0mm2 for connection to the fixed wiring of the premises through a suitable double pole switched fused spur, with the fuse rated correctly for the appliance, positioned adjacent to the heater. A means for disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed wiring of the premises in accordance with the wiring regulations.

    Please note that lit cigarettes, candles and oil burners, combined with the convection effect of electric heaters can cause significant soot deposits to build up on the surface directly above and to the sides of the heater. This is not a fault of the heater. Extensive burning of candles or smoking in the operating environment of this product can produce heavy discolouration within a few months of use.

    WARNING - This heater must not be connected to the electricity supply via an external switching device (such as a timer) or a circuit that is regularly switched on and off by the utility supplier. Failure to follow this warning could result in the heater’s thermal cut-off being inadvertently re-set and could create a fire hazard.

    This heater is filled with a precise quantity of special oil. Repairs requiring opening of the oil container are only to be made by the manufacturer or the manufacturer’s service agent who should be contacted if there is an oil leakage. Regulations concerning the disposal of oil when scrapping the heater have to be followed.

    If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by the manufacturer or approved service partner

    SAFETY - Overheat protection For your safety this heater is fitted with a thermal cut-out. In the event that the product overheats for some reason, the cut-out prevents excessive temperatures on the product by cutting the power to the heater. Once the heater has cooled down, it will reset automatically, it will continue to cycle on and off automatically until the reason for overheating is removed. The display screen may flash red to indicate the product has overheated. To reset the display, remove the obstruction and hold Enter for 10 seconds.

    How Does the Heater Control Work? The control allows you to choose when you want heat and at what temperature. When using a timer mode (see below), Comfort On will display on the home screen to tell you when the heater is maintaining the temperature displayed. Comfort Off will display when the heater is outside of a timed heating period. When Manual, Eco or Frost modes are being used the heater will always maintain the temperature shown on the home screen.

    Set the Time To set the date and time on the heater, press Menu, then press the Enter with Time / Date highlighted. Press or until the correct value is shown, then press Enter to confirm and move on to the next value. Repeat until all details are correct, and Set displays, then press Back. The time is automatically adjusted in spring and autumn between Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and British Summer Time (BST).

    Set the Temperature The temperature shown on the display is the room temperature set point. This is the temperature that the heater will maintain during the heating periods. If the room temperature is above this temperature then the heater will not operate. The heater leaves the factory with this temperature set at 21°C which represents a typical, comfortable room temperature. If you require a different room temperature then press either or until the display shows the temperature you require.
