of a system that will protect you if something goes
wrong with the electrical wiring in the unit. Be sure
the three-prong plug is plugged into a matching threeprong socket. DO NOT cut or break off the large third
prong in this plug, or the protective system will not

Make sure incoming voltage is the same as unit is rated
for. An electrical specification plate specifying
rated voltage, wattage, HZ and phase of unit is
attached to the front panel.
Plugging unit into greater voltage than unit is rated
for may cause severe damage to the thermostatic
control, elements and other components. Plugging unit
into less voltage than unit is rated for may cause
significant decrease in performance.
