    Operating Instructions

     

    • Adjust the voltage switch (115V or 230V) to the correct settings (A - see Figure 1).
    • Connect the charger to the Power Pack - position the adapter, arrows up and toward you, at the bottom of the Power Pack, just below the metal contacts of the Power Pack. The adapter will fit almost exactly with the Power Pack and will be centred below the contacts, using the ridges located on the Power Pack as a guide for the proper position. Gently slide the adapter upward in the direction of the arrows, until it is fully aligned with the Power Pack contacts and stops, unable to slide upward any more.
    • Plug the power cord into the power receptacle.
    • Turn on the power switch (B - see Figure 1): the fan will begin to run and the charging LED will turn yellow.
    • When finished charging, a green light will indicate that the Power Pack is fully charged. Between uses it is suggested that the charger is left connected, even after the charge process is completed. This will not damage the Power Pack or the charger.
    • To remove the Power Pack, switch off the charger before disconnecting from the Power Pack - gently slide the adapter downwards until the adapter and Power Pack contacts are no longer aligned.

    Troubleshooting
    A) Switching on the charger power but no LED light up

     

    • Confirm that the charger cord is plugged into the mains supply.
    • Ensure that the mains supply is turned on.
    • Test that the main socket is working by plugging in another appliance.
    • Check the fuse (C – Figure 1).
    • Check for short circuit in the wire from the adapter to the Power Pack.

     

    B) Switching on the charger power, red LED is up, green LED flashes but there is no charging

     

    • Check if the fuse has severed.
    • Check the connection between the adaptor and the Power Pack.
    • Battery polarity is wrong.
    • Check the connection to the battery and the battery wires (inside the case).

     

    C) The charging time continues for a long duration

     

    • The battery is damaged.
    • The battery is coming to the end of its natural life.
