Question about DeLonghi Heating & Cooling
I have had this heater for about 6 yrs during which time it has had very little useage. Recently the plug and metal prongs have been getting very hot so much so that I have burnt my hand on the plug. The heater itself works fine but I can't use it with the over heating electrical plug as I feel sure it is not safe. I have used other electrical items from the same electrical socket and all have worked fine with no heating of the plugs on them so the fault is obviously with the heater/ plug itself. Any help with what could be causing this would be appreciated and advice on how to fix it.

I don't know about your specific heater, but, as someone who has a vast electronics background, things that heat tend to give off some fumes. Many electronic componets are LIGHTLY coated with an oil product to provide humidity protection, while the product may sit in a warehouse for years. Typically, such protection, upon being heated, will disperse in the first (maybe) hour of use. but, it could be more, I guess.
BUT, fumes should never be taken lightly. FUMES SHOULD NEVER BE TAKEN LIGHTLY!!!. FUMES MAY KILL YOU!!
How I handle it is...if the fume is noxious, so as to irritate your nose, or eyes, etc. IT IS BAD!!!
Nevertheless, if I were in your boots, I would take the unit outdoors, and let it run on 'HIGH' for about a 1/2 hour, or so. After it cools down, take it indoors and try it again. If it is still fuming, write the manufacturer a "fuming" letter.

It was very tough to find the actual manual online for your modle in English. However, you can call Delonghi customer support:
DeLonghi Customer Support: (800) 322-3848
Delonghi does have manuals for some models on their site. Take a look at this link, the model might be similar enough to yours to be able to get the information you need.
Hope this was helpful.
have a great day!

If it is tripping the breaker in the panel, there is a direct short in the heater. Scrap it before it causes a fire. Seriusly

To set the heating periods proceed in the following manner:
- Check the time by your watch. Supposing it is 10.00 a.m. turn the numbered dial of the
time-clock in a clockwise direction until the number 10 coincides with the reference mark s
on the time-clock. Set the time period during which you wish the appliance to work by
pushing the notches towards the centre. Each notch corresponds to a period of 15 minutes.
At this point sections will be visible corresponding to the working periods.
Set in this way the radiator will function automatically every day during the set period.
(Important: the plug must remain connected to power supply).
- To change the programmed time period, just bring back the black notches to their original
position and set the new working periods required.
- If you wish the appliance to function without programmed working periods push all the notches
towards the centre. In this case, to turn the appliance off totally the plug must be pulled
out apart from switching off, so as to avoid unnecessary working of the timer.
