If the heater is not required for long periods, for example during
the summer, it should be stored in a dry place and preferably
covered to prevent the accumulation of dirt and dust. The supply
cord should be neatly coiled around the cable wrap (see Fig. 1)
ensuring that the plug does not trail on the oor.
The heater must be kept plugged in at the mains to retain the
time and the programmed settings. If unplugged from the mains,
resetting the time and the programmed settings will be necessary.
WARNING - ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY
BEFORE CLEANING THE HEATER.
Do not use detergents, abrasive cleaning powder or polish of
any kind on the body of the heater.
Allow the heater to cool, then wipe with a dry cloth to remove dust
and a damp cloth (not wet) to clean off stains. Be careful not to allow
moisture in to the heater.

Positioning the Heater
Select the position for the heater ensuring there is clearance from
any furniture and ttings of at least 300mm above the heater
and 150mm each side. The heater should only be operated on
a at stable surface.
IMPORTANT – Objects or clothing must not be placed on this
heater. Before using the heater ensure that all warnings and
instructions have been read carefully.
To bring the heater into use plug it in. Neon indicating lights
located at the controls area will glow when the appliance is
plugged into the mains.
Thermostat (see Fig. 4)
The Thermostat (see Fig. 4) controls the heat output according
to the room temperature. This ensures that the heater will not
produce heat unnecessarily when the room is warm. To set the
temperature you require, turn the thermostat knob clockwise
until the required setting is reached. Alternatively to heat a cold
room quickly, turn the thermostat knob up fully. When the room
has reached the desired temperature, turn the thermostat knob
anti-clockwise until the thermostat just clicks off. The heater
will now automatically operate at this temperature. With the
thermostat set to ‘ ‘ and the heat selection switch set to the
required heat output the appliance switches on automatically
when the temperature falls below +5°C to +8°C.
Note – Should the heater fail to come on when the thermostat is
at a low setting, this may be due to the room temperature being
higher than the thermostat setting.
Heat Selector Switches (see Fig. 5)
Selector switches located on the control panel provide a choice
of heat output to suit varying conditions and for economy of
OFRC10TFN(B)(W), 500W 700W 1000W
OFRC15TFN(B)(W), 800W 1200W 1500W
OFRC20TFN(B)(W), 1200W 1700W 2000W
OFRC24TFN(B)(W), 1400W 2100W 2400W
Turbo fan (see Fig. 5)
The turbo fan is used to boost the heat output and also the
airow around the room. This circulates the heat and results in
a reduced heat up time and a more even heat distribution. The
turbo fan is controlled by the switch on the front of the product.
The turbo can be turned on independently of the heat.
The tilt switch will prevent the heater from working if it is
accidentally tipped over on its side.
If the heater is tipped over while it is hot, disconnect the power
and allow it to cool, then stand the heater back upright. Reconnect
the power - normal operation should be resumed.
