Equalizer Booster Fan Instructions

READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT WARNINGS

With the use of any electrical appliance, it is important to observe all basic precautions to minimize the risk associated with use, such as electrical shock, fire, or injury to persons.

Read these instructions before using your Equalizer® EQ2 Register Booster™.

NEVER EXPOSE YOUR EQUALIZER® EQ2 TO TEMPERATURES OVER 140°F (60°C)

Your Equalizer ® EQ2 will be as warm as the air that is delivered from the register of your forced air furnace and/or cooling system. The maximum temperature for a register is 140° Fahrenheit or 60° Centigrade. Your Equalizer® EQ2 should never be exposed to higher temperatures or temperatures below freezing.

Do not in any way block the air grills of the Equalizer® EQ2.

Unplug the Equalizer® EQ2 when not in use. Turn the unit off before unplugging.

Do not operate the Equalizer® with a damaged plug or cord, if the unit malfunctions, becomes noisy when operating, has been dropped or otherwise damaged, or if the housing is damaged or broken. Return the unit for inspection, replacement, or repair.

The Equalizer® should never be exposed to moisture. Do not use the unit in an open window, bathroom, or laundry area where it may come in contact with water.

The Equalizer® is designed for indoor use only.

Place the Equalizer® and the electrical cord where it will not be tripped over, and is out of the traffic pattern.

Never run the electrical cord under carpeting, baseboards, scatter rugs, or hide it in any way.

Never insert any object or allow any object to enter the Equalizer® through the grills, as this may damage the unit or cause it to malfunction.

The motor of the Equalizer® is equipped with a thermal fuse. Blocking rotation of the fan or airflow may cause the motor to overheat. Should the motor overheat and the fuse open, replacement of the motor is required.

Do not use the Equalizer® near flammables such as gasoline, paint, or natural gas.

The Equalizer® is intended for use as described in the instructions only. Other use may cause fire, electrical shock, damage to the unit, or injury to persons and will void any warranty by the manufacturer.

The Equalizer® has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit into the outlet fully, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit contact a qualified electrician. DO NOT attempt to defeat this safety feature.

If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use a heavy duty approved cord with adequate wire size.

Pressure on the grills of the Equalizer® may cause the fan impeller to contact these grills and damage the unit.

Do not use strong detergents or flammable liquids to clean the Equalizer®.

The housing of your Equalizer® is sealed at the factory. THERE ARE NO SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. Attempting to open the housing will expose you to dangerous electricity, may cause fire, and will void any and all warranty.
