I've sent pictures of controls
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the pictures, could you take one from the end towards the clock part. I can see that you have three options, either 1200w element, 1800w elements or both combined 3000w - just need to see the end so that I can work out what the other controls do. Is it a fan heater as I cant see without a full picture of the appliance.

Hi hope this helps
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
OK here we go, looking at the clock you have ~~
The central knob which controls the operation of the time clock, its positions are changed by selecting on of the three position using the upside down triangle at the 12 o'clock position and turning the knob to whichever position you want -
left = 1 - Manual operation
Middle = clock - Clock controlled ie timed.
right = 0 - off.
If you want to use the heater using the time clock.
Around the outside are pins that you can push in for off periods, or leave out for on periods. The actual time selected is visible by looking at the triangle at the 2 o'clock position.
