When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be taken to avoid the risk of
fire, electric shock and personal injury, including the following:

prior to connecting the appliance to an outlet.
3. This heater becomes very hot when operating. To avoid burns, do not touch its hot surfaces
with your bare skin. Use the heater's handle when moving it. Keep combustible materials,
such as furniture, pillows, bedding, papers, clothes and curtains at least 3 feet (90 cm) away
from the heater's front and top, and also well away from its sides and rear.

after it has malfunctioned, has been dropped or damaged in any manner. If
you notice any leakage of oil, switch it off immediately and contact a service
center as indicated in these instructions. Return the heater to an authorized
service facility for inspection, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.

Never locate the heater where it might fall into a bathtub or other water containers.

operation. Therefore, you should not use it in areas where gasoline, paint, or
flammable liquids are used or stored.
