This “Tingling” feeling is known as an “electric field effect” and is occasionally known to happen across all makes and brands of Blankets. It is caused by the current flowing through the element creating an Electromagnetic Field (EMF). Some people are more susceptible to feeling this EMF tingling sensation than others. This is no cause for concern and is in no way an electric shock. 9
****** Page 10 ****** Operation Auto Off This controller is fitted with a 3 hour count down auto OFF timer, which starts to countdown from when your heat setting has been selected, and will switch off after 3 hours. Note: Once a heat setting has been selected and the switch is powered ON, the countdown timer will not be affected by adjusting the heat level. The timer will only be reset to 3 hours by sliding the control knob to “O” or after being powered OFF and then back ON When the controller has timed out, the element will turn off. Slide the control knob to the “O” position to reset. Preheat At normal ambient temperature you should allow at least 10-30 minutes on heat setting “5-6” to preheat. You may use the heated throw sooner, while it’s still warming up, however DO NOT leave the blanket on setting “5 6” while on your body. Note: A cold room that has not been used for some time may require a greater length of time to pre heat. Overheat Protection The heated throw is fitted with numerous overheat safeguard systems. This offers protection against overheating or damage to the elements by disengaging the power to the elements before overheating hazards occur. Should there ever be a problem with the heating element in the heated throw, it will automatically close down the operation and the heated throw will turn off. The controller must not be covered. The controller has built in protection, so that if the controller overheats, or the heating element is damaged, it will automatically close down the operation permanently. If overheating occurs, the heated throw is permanently damaged and cannot be used again. A replacement will be needed. Keep the controller away from external heat sources. i.e. heater, fireplace etc. NOTE: 10
