Safety Instructions You Should Follow
Failure to follow any of these safety instructions could cause fire, injury, or death.
- The unit will be hot when in use. Don’t let the bare skin touch hot surfaces to avoid burns.
- Keep the unit at least 3 feet from combustible materials like beddings, carpets, clothes, papers, and curtains from the front of the heater.
- To disconnect the heater safely, turn off the heater first. Then, grip the plug and pull it towards you from the wall outlet. Never try to hold the cord to pull away.
- Take superior caution when you use the heater near children, pets, or leave it unattended.
- Unplug the heater when it’s not in use.
- Never operate the heater with a damaged power cord or after the heater malfunctions.
- Don’t use this heater outdoors, bathrooms, laundry areas, or similar areas as the unit isn’t intended for heating such areas.
- Don’t run the cord under carpeting and verify the cord isn’t covered with throw rugs or runners.
- When you operate this heater in the Highest setting, it draws 12.5 amps. I recommend you to not plug the heater into an outlet that has already been used to connect other appliances. It will help you avoid overloading the circuit.
- The plug feels warm to touch which is pretty normal. However, it may cause overheating or distortion of the plug if there is a loose fit between the AC outlet and the plug. Never allow any foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust openings.
- Ensure the air intakes or exhausts are free from blockages. Otherwise, it will cause a fire.
- There are hot and arcing or sparking parts inside the unit. So, it’s highly recommended to not use the heater in an area where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored.
- Never use an extension cord to power up the heater as it may cause overheat or a risk of fire.
- Stop yourself from removing the labels that contain warnings or safety instructions.
- Turn the fan to the Off position when you are going to clean, store, or when the unit is not in use.
Set Up Guides
You must set up your space heater on a firm, level, and open surface that is free from obstructions. Ensure the heater is at least 3 feet away from any wall or any combustible material.
Never position the heater on an unstable surface such as bedding or deep carpeting.
Most importantly, don’t place the heater on a surface where the unit is at risk of tripped over by children or pets.
If you want to move the heater, just turn off the unit and leave it for 10 minutes to let it cool down. Then, unplug the heater and move it where you want it to set up.
Operational Tips (How To Turn On Honeywell 360 Surround Heater)
This unit requires no assembly. What you need to do now is- just plug the heater into an outlet and turn it on to warm your space!
Wait! Wait! It’s not as simple as described. Follow the below step-by-step guide to turn on the heater correctly.
1. Verify the power knob is in the Off position. Then, plug your heater into a polarized 120V outlet. Never force the polarized plug into the outlet as it will only fit one way.
2. Now, turn the Power knob to one of its three settings, including:
- Fan Only: When you set the power knob to this setting, the fan will only start without heating the space. It means this mode will only blow air. The Fan Only setting uses only 19 watts of electric power.
- Low: Low Heat setting uses 750 watts of power. As it requires less electricity, this heating mode is the most energy efficient setting if you are concerned about the electric bill.
- High: This temperature setting uses 1500 watts of power and gives you more heat to warm up your space quickly. Of course, it’s not more energy efficient than the Low setting.
3. Locate the Thermostat Control knob beside the Power Knob and turn it fully clockwise to the highest setting.
4. Once the room temperature reaches a comfortable level, turn the Thermostat Control counterclockwise until the heating element goes off. When the heating element goes off, understand the Thermostat setting equals your room temperature. At this setting, the thermostat will automatically turn on & off the heater to maintain the selected temperature.
5. Turn off the heater by rotating the Power Knob to 0 position when you are finished using it. Then, unplug the space heater from the power source.
