Hi kristy,

Thank you for the question.

If the timer is on and you want it removed, you may need to use the Override button to remove it which can be seen in the manual.

Our technical help team can talk you through it over the phone and can be contacted on 1300 555 545 option 3

Hi Raymond, existing installations with bayonet points can purchase a portable LPG only heater. New installations of these gas points are not allowed. As long as the installation in the house is pre-existing and the Cappella plus is LPG it can be legally operated.

With moderate usage (6 hours per day) how long would an LPG 20kg bottle last?

Thanks for the question Jon. Based the heater working 2.5 hours running on 'HIGH' and 2.5 hours running on 'low' per day for 100 days per year (approximately a winter season) this heater will use approxiamately 3 LPG tanks.

We hope this helps.
