Safety Instructions

About the controls on the portable room heater.

A thermostat is used to maintain the room temperature. The heater will cycle on and off to keep the room at the set level of comfort. Set the thermostat at a higher temperature and the indoor air will become warmer. Set the thermostat at a lower temperature and the indoor air will become less warm.

Use the fan mode to provide air circulation without heating.

Since the fan setting does not provide heating, a temperature setting will not be displayed.
