INFORMATION


Thermostatic Electric Heating Element

Heating element is not suitable for central heating systems where water temperature may exceed 82°C.

A thermal fuse installed in a heating element prevents its operation in dry conditions. Installation of the heating
element in high temperature systems will damage the fuse even when the device is not connected to electricity.

Ensure that the radiator is filled with a heating medium before switching the heating element on.

Turning on the device installed in a “dry” radiator will damage the heating element.
Thermostatic Electric Heating Element

Ensure that at least one of the radiator valves is open before you turn on the heating element.

Rising temperature increases a liquid’s volume. To avoid excessive pressure build-up inside the radiator (which will damage the heating element), please leave one of the radiator valves open. For detailed instructions, please see the electric radiator manual’s “air cushion” section.
