Your Stove Fan must be placed on a flat and level surface, with the fan blades free to rotate. Please ensure the fan is placed in this correct position before lighting the stove. Stoves get really hot, they are designed too, when in use your Stove Fan will get hot and circulate hot air. Stove fans are highly attractive as well as functional and will draw attention to onlookers, therefore please ensure that any elderly, infirm, children or pets are supervised during operation. It is not recommended to move the fan whilst in operation unless to remove in the event of the stove over firing, in this instance always wear gloves to protect against burns or contact with the blades. Do not cause obstruction to the fan blades, this could damage the Fan or the item in contact with the fan.
