How is ELIAH installed?
ELIAH does not snap into the mounting shell correctly
Please check the following points:
- The electrical installation is correctly stowed away and cannot be jammed. If the installation cables are very long, cables may have to be shortened. Please make sure that the cables at ELIAH should only be shortened if you no longer want to take advantage of the “money back guarantee”. Please also note point 4.3 in the operating instructions and especially Figure 3.
- The assembly shell may be strained. This is possible due to an uneven ceiling, imprecise drill holes, or excessive tightening of the installation screws. You can loosen the screws to the ceiling so far that the corners of the mounting shell just touch the ceiling.
- If the drill holes are not precise and you no longer want to take advantage of the “money back guarantee”, the mounting bracket can also be adapted to the drill hole. To do this, you can use a 5 mm metal drill to widen the existing mounting hole accordingly, or even to set completely new mounting holes. For this we recommend a position as close as possible to the original fastening hole, but also positioned so that the screw is not later visible from the outside.
- The assembly ropes may be in the way. As soon as the electrical installation is connected and the fall protection has been installed, you can also unhook the assembly ropes and stow them separately in the corners beforehand. Just make sure that the assembly ropes do not cover the magnet pads.
Can I also mount ELIAH vertically?
Which circuits does ELIAH fit?
On circuits with 4 amps, 6 amps or more than 10 amps. The device can be configured accordingly for a lower maximum heating output of 800 watts or 1200 watts. This corresponds to circuits with 4 amps or 6 amps fuse protection.
For maximum heating output and use as a rapid heater, the circuit should be designed for at least 10 amperes. However, lower heating outputs are still suitable for small toilets or bathrooms. The ideal design includes:
Circuit breaker (> = 10 amps), cables (usually> = 1.5 mm ^ 2) and light switch (> = 10 amps).
How is ELIAH connected electrically?
As a “protection class 1” device, ELIAH requires a single-phase connection. Must be connected:
- Protective conductor (PE = green / yellow)
- Neutral conductor (N = blue)
- Conductor (L = brown)
The existing terminals or other gas-tight terminals must be used for the connection!
Do I need a special light switch?
Existing light switches are usually sufficient for use as rapid heaters. The light switch must be rated for 10 amps or more.
To use the timer functions, it is necessary to use a button (changeover button, installation as normally closed). Here, too, the switch must be designed according to the current strength.
Configuration on the device
How is ELIAH programmed?
Can I reset ELIAH to factory settings?
ELIAH does not heat during programming, is that normal?
The menu for timer settings cannot be selected
Operation on the light switch
How does the operation on the light switch work?
How does the operation on the light switch work if this is a changeover button?
Can ELIAH always start with the last selected program?
Why does ELIAH not have a remote control?
Why does ELIAH not have a ceramic heating element?
Ceramic heating elements also have
a limited surface temperature without active air supply. This will also

So ceramic heating elements make sense.
The ELIAH heating element is made of corrosion-resistant constantan wire.
Because we only turn on the heating when the air flow from the fan
is applied, we have ideal heat dissipation and the risk from the very first moment

are the lower heat capacity and the small construction volume, which is why we at ELIAH
could achieve a compact design.
