 ℹ️ Please read all instructions carefully before operating

This appliance is intended for domestic and light commercial use only. Any other use is not recommended and may cause fire, electrical shocks or other injury to persons or property.


  • Use only as directed in the User Manual.
  • Do not allow children or persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities to operate the unit without adult supervision.
  • Only designed for use in a 200-240V, 50Hz outlet.
  • The heater must not be located immediately below a socket outlet.
  • Do not use this heater with a programmer, timer, separate remote-control system or any other device that switches the heater on automatically, as a fire risk exists if the heater is covered or positioned incorrectly.
  • Do not use this heater in the immediate surroundings of a bath, a shower or a swimming pool, or in any situation where it could get wet.
  • Keep all flammable materials such as furniture, bedding, paper, clothing and curtains, at least 90 cm from the front and top of the appliance. Do not use the appliance in areas where gasoline or other flammable liquids are used or stored.
  • 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. To prevent overheating and the risk of fire, DO NOT cover the appliance while it is in operation.
  • Connect the appliance directly to a suitable outlet. DO NOT use this appliance with an extension cord or outlet strip. 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.
  • It is normal for the 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 be a fire risk.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • To protect against electrical shocks, do not immerse the unit, plug or cord in water, or spray with liquids.
  • To prevent damage to the unit, switch the heater off first by pressing the "STANDBY" key, before unplugging the power cord.
  • Do not run the power cord under carpeting, or cover it with rugs or runners. Arrange the cord away from areas where it may be tripped over.
  • Do not use this heater if it has been dropped.
  • Do not use if there are visible signs of damage to the heater.
  • Use this heater on a horizontal and stable surface, or fix it to the wall, as applicable.
  • WARNING: Do not use this heater in small rooms when they are occupied by persons not capable of leaving the room on their own, unless constant supervision is provided.
  • WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, keep textiles, curtains, or any other flammable material a minimum distance of 1 m from the air outlet.
  • To repair the unit, take it to a qualified service engineer. Repairs carried out by unqualified people may cause damage to the unit or injury to persons or property and void the warranty.
