How to Use the Timer on a DeLonghi Magnum Heater

Updated February 21, 2017

The DeLonghi Magnum Heater is a portable heater for home use. The Magnum is a good accessory to a regular heating unit in that it heats up rooms within a house, saving on fuel costs associated with standard heating units. A timer is built into the Magnum that allows users to run the heater at specific times of the day and for specific amounts of time. This useful feature allows users to further save on fuel and electricity costs by only using the heater when it is most needed, such as at night.

Plug the heater into a working electrical socket.

Turn the dial to the right to set the current time. The dial uses a 24-hour clock set up in 15-minute increments, so set the clock to the closest 15-minute increment. For example, if the time is 10:55 p.m., set the dial to "23," as the closest 15-minute time increment is 11:00 p.m.

Press the tabs inward for the time you want the heater to run. For example, press in all 20 tabs from "24" to "5" if you want the heater to run from 12:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. When the timer gets to "24," the heater will turn on and remain on until the timer gets to "5."

Set any additional on and off times by pressing in other tabs corresponding to the time in the day. Press all 96 tabs in if you want the heater to run nonstop.

Pull out any of the tabs pressed in to remove any timer settings.


The timer will continue to run and the heater will turn on and off as long as the heater is receiving power.
