before connecting appliance to the outlet.

ces. Use handle when moving this heater. Keep combustible materials, such as fur-
niture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes, and curtains at least 3 feet (0,9 m) from the

never the heater is left operating and unattended.

locations. Never locate heater where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.

12. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as
this may cause an electric shock, fire, or damage the heater.

where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.
15. Use this heater only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended
by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
16. To prevent overload and blown fuses, be sure that no other appliance is plugged into the
same outlet (receptacle) or into another outlet (receptacle) wired into the same circuit.
17. It is normal for the heater's plug and cord to feel warm to the touch. A plug or cord which beco-
mes hot to the touch or becomes distorted in shape may be a result of a worn electrical outlet.
Worn outlets or receptacles should be replaced prior to further use of the heater. Plugging heater
into a worn outlet /receptacle/ may result in overheating of the power cord or fire.
18. Do not use an extension cord because it may overheat and cause a risk of fire. However,
if you have to use an extension cord, the cord shall be No. 1 4 AWG minimum size and
rated not less than 1875 watts, and has to be used only for supplying power to this heater.
19. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into an appropriate outlet. Please remember that outlets also
deteriorate due to aging and continuous use: check periodically if signs overheating or deforma-
tions are evidenced by the plug. Do not use the outlet and CALL your electrician.
20. Check that neither the appliance nor the power cable have been damaged in any
way during transportation.
21. Make sure that no pieces of polystyrene or other packaging material have been left
between one element of the appliance and another. It may be necessary to pass
over the appliance with a vacuum cleaner.
22. When switching on the appliance for the first time, allow it to run at full power for
about two hours to get rid of the unpleasant smell. Make sure that the room in which
the appliance is located is well ventilated during this operation. It is normal for the
appliance to emit small cracking sounds when you turn it on for the first time.
