General Safety Information
About Your MinusA2 Air Purifier
Caution: When using electrical appliances, observe the following basic precautions
to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons:
Electrical Safety Instructions
• Please read all tips and warnings before using the MinusA2 Air Purifier.
• Use only as directed by the MinusA2 Air Purifier Owner’s Manual.
• The MinusA2 Air Purifier is only designed for use in a 110/120V outlet.
• Please observe extreme caution when using the MinusA2 Air Purifier in the proximity
of children.
• Turn off your MinusA2 Air Purifier before unplugging it from the power outlet.
• MinusA2 Air Purifiers are for indoor use only.
• The MinusA2 Air Purifier is not intended for use in bathrooms, laundry areas and other
damp indoor environments. Keep the MinusA2 Air Purifier away from water at all times.
• Do not use the MinusA2 Air Purifier near fireplaces or in areas where flammable or
combustible products or vapors may be present.
• Unplug the MinusA2 Air Purifier from power outlet when not in use and before servicing
or cleaning the unit.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, the MinusA2 Air Purifier has a polarized plug, which
means it will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact qualified personnel to install the
proper outlet. Do not alter the plug in any way.
• To avoid electric shock, do not touch the MinusA2 Air Purifier or its power plug
with wet hands.
• Keep the MinusA2 Air Purifier cord away from heated surfaces at all times.
• If cord or plug appears damaged, return the unit immediately to an authorized service
facility for examination and repair.
• Any attempts to repair the MinusA2 Air Purifier without written permission from Rabbit
Air will void the warranty and could cause serious personal injury to the user and/or
result in severe damage to the unit.
• Do not pull, carry, lift, or drag the MinusA2 Air Purifier by pulling its power cord. Remove
the power plug from its outlet by grasping the plug itself and pulling gently.
• When the MinusA2 Air Purifier is plugged into the power outlet, keep all fingers, body
parts, hair, jewelry and loose clothing away from the openings.
