The Operating Instructions for the DeLonghi Safeheat

The 22-inch-high DeLonghi Safeheat offers digital control, a thermostat and a motorized oscillating base. The unit turns on automatically when the room temperature drops below the temperature you set, a feature you can control for up to 8 hours at a time with the programmable timer. You can turn down your house thermostat to save money on your heating bill and use the portable DeLonghi Safeheat to keep the room you're in warm.

Step 1

Place the heater on a flat surface free of combustible materials. Connect the DeLonghi Safeheat to a power source by plugging the cord directly into the outlet. Press the "On/Off" switch, directly under the digital display screen, to turn the unit on to "Low" power as the screen displays the current room temperature.

Step 2

Press the "Mode" button to the left of the digital display screen once to raise the heat setting to "High." Press it again to set to "Auto."

Step 3

Push "+," the top button to the right of the digital display screen, to increase the temperature and the "–" button to lower it.

Step 4

Push the "timer" button to the left of the digital display screen once to turn the timer on for one hour. Push it again to add one more hour to the running time for up to 8 hours. Push the "timer" button again after the 8-hour setting to turn off the timer.

Step 5

Push the "On/Off" switch when the heater is set to Low, High or Auto to set the heater to oscillate. Push the button again to stop the heater from oscillating.


  • Heed the warning on the heater that reads, "Risk of Fire, please keep combustible materials such as furniture, paper, clothes and curtains at least 3 feet from the front of the heater and away from the sides and rear."
  • DeLonghi recommends plugging the DeLonghi Safeheat directly into an outlet rather than using an extension cord. If you must use an extension cord, use one that is at least 14 AWG in size and that carries a rating of at least 1875 W.
  • Operate the heater in a normal household area free of excess moisture, not in a bathroom or laundry room.
