[Amel Yacht Owners] Fakir Heater Manual


Patrick McAneny
 

Bill- I googled the heater name and came up with a website that appears to have a manual on line.  It is not in English.

Anybody have a copy of the manual they could upload to the forum for the Fakir Hobby S heater?

We attempted to get some new knobs directly from the company in Germany. They responded promptly by email in English, but stated our model of heater was no longer supported. When you look online, they seem to have a model of a similar shape and size. I'd send them an email, and see if they can provide a manual in English.

Thank you all for your suggestions! I have contacted Fakir and they are actually working with a company they distribute to in Kansas to see if they can import 2 new units for me. In the mean time does anyone have a source they can share to purchase the new Fakir Hobby S in the US? I have possibly found a happy medium in the meantime. By running all 3 heaters at once in the low setting I have been managing to keep the boat at 64 throughout the boat on the cold nights. I am big into having a backup for everything so finding a replacement heater source would be greatly appreciated. For the record, I ordered an oil filled 220 radiator and it does not perform the way I would like it too. Might be good to maintain an above freezing temperature when away.  Save your money.

I remember reading on this forum that the electric heaters should only be run on the High fan setting.  Is that correct?  If so, your plan to run all 3 on low may not be a good idea.

Kent the run on high heaters are the combo AC/heating units with Ele heat. Those fans MUST run on hi to keep the elements from melting/blowing their internal fuse.
