SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
When using any electrical appliance, some basic safety precautions should be observed to reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons. Specifically:
1. Read all instructions carefully before using the appliance.
2. This appliance gets very hot when in use. To prevent burns, do not touch hot surfaces with bare skin. Use
the handle when moving the appliance. Keep all flammable materials, such as furniture, pillows, bed-
ding, paper, clothing, and curtains at least 3 feet (90 cm) from the front and top of the appliance also
avoid contact with the sides and back.
3. The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be
supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
4. Always disconnect the plug from the power outlet when the appliance is not in use.
5. Do not operate the appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after faulty operation, or when it has
been dropped or damaged in any way. Contact the nearest authorized service facility for examina-
tion, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.
6. Do not use the appliance outdoors.
7. This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas, or similar indoor locations.
Never position the appliance where it may fall into a bathtub or come in contact with water.
8. Do not run the power cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners, or the like. Keep
the cord away from any passageways where it could be tripped over.
9. To completely turn off the appliance, push the ON/STAND-BY button (A), and then unplug the heater.
10. Do not wrap the cord around the appliance immediately after use.
11. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to get into the air intakes or exhaust vents, as this may cause electric
shock or fire, or damage the appliance.
12. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intake or exhaust in any way. Do not use the appliance on soft
surfaces, such as beds, where the openings may become blocked.
13. Do not cover the appliance while it is functioning in order to avoid overheating and the risk of fire.
14. The internal parts of the appliance can become very hot or produce sparks during operation. Do not use
the appliance in areas where gasoline, paints, or other flammable liquids are used or stored.
15. Use this appliance only as described in this manual. Any other use not indicated by the manufacturer
may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
16. To prevent current overload and blown fuses, make sure that no other appliance is plugged into the same
outlet or into another outlet wired into the same circuit.
17. It is normal for heater’s plug and cord to feel warm to the touch. However, an excessively hot or deformed
plug or cord is not normal and may be the result of a defective electrical outlet. Defective outlets must be
replaced before using the heater. Plugging the heater into a worn outlet may result in overheating of the
power cord or may cause the risk of fire.
18. If the supply cord is damaged, to reduce the risk of malfunction it must be replaced by the manufacturer,
its service agent, or a licensed and qualified professional.
19. Do not use this appliance with an extension cord or outlet strip. Connect the appliance directly to a suita-
ble outlet.
20. Make sure that the plug is fully inserted into the outlet. Wall outlets may deteriorate with time, so check the
plug periodically for signs of overheating or deformation. If the outlet has deteriorated, stop using it and
have it repaired.
21. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cord have been damaged during shipping.
22. Make sure that no styrofoam or other packing materials remain in the appliance.
23. The first time the appliance is used, run it at the maximum power for at least two hours. During this time,
ventilate the room thoroughly to eliminate the “new” smell released by the appliance. It is completely nor-
mal for the appliance to emit “creaking” sounds the first time it is run.
24. CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, make sure the wide prong of the plug is inserted in the wide slot
of the outlet.

Additional safety features
1. Overheating protection: a safety device switches the fan heater off if it accidentally overheats
(e.g. air intake and outlet grilles obstructed, motor not turning or turning slowly). In this case
remove the plug from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for a few minutes, eliminate the
cause of overheating, then plug the fan heater back and turn on it again.
2. Tip over safety switch: a safety tip-over switch turns the fan heater off if it tips over or is positio-
ned in an improper way that could jeopardize safety.
Note: To avoid overheating the appliance, do not cover it.
TROUBLE-SHOOTING
In case “PF” is displayed and a warning sound is emitted, there is a fault on the temperature sensor.
If the problem persists contact the Service Center.
If the appliance shuts off unexpectedly:
- Check that the appliance is receiving power.
- Check that the appliance is in the vertical position and on a flat surface, as the safety tip-
over switch may have been tripped.
- Check the temperature set and the timer.
The appliance may be off because the set temperature has been reached or the time set on
the timer has elapsed.
