grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely
understood or if doubt exists as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded. If it is necessary
to use an extension cord , use only a 3-wire
extension cord.
1. A short power-supply cord is provided to
reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. If a long cord set or extension cord is used:
1)The marked electrical rating of the cord set
or extension cord should be at least as great
as the electrical rating of the appliance.
2)The extension cord must be a groundingtype 3-wire cord.
3)The long cord should be arranged so that it
will not drape over the counter top or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or tripped
over unintentionally.
