This tile saw is equipped with a 3-prong electrical plug. DO NOT alter the plug or use a 2-prong receptacle. 2. The plug supplied on your tool may not fit into the outlet you are planning to use. 3. Your local electrical code may require slightly different power cord plug connections. If These Differences Exist, refer to and make the proper adjustments per your local code BEFORE your tool is plugged in and turned on. 4. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. 5. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug, as shown in Figure 1. The plug must be plugged into a GFCI protected matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances 6. DO NOT modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. 7. A temporary GFCI protected adapter may be used to connect this plug to a 2-prong outlet, if a properly grounded 3-prong outlet is not available. 8. This temporary adapter Should Be Used Only Until a properly grounded 3-prong outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. 9. The green-colored (with or without yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding conductor and must be connected to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box: 10. Improper connecUon of the equipment-grounding adapter can result In a risk of electrical shock. 11ill repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, DO NOT connect the equipment-grounding adapter to a live terminal. 12. If you do not fully understand the grounding Instructions, or If you are In doubt as to whether the tool Is properly grounded, check with a qualified electrician or service person. 13. ONLY USE 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that will accept the tool's plug. 14. ALWAYS repair or replace damaged or worn cords immediately. 15. ALWAYS avoid the possibility of getting the plug or receptacle wet. See Positioning the Saw on page 6. 16. ONLY USE UL Listed extension cords with this product. Other extension cords may not supply sufficient power causing the tool to overheat. BE SURE that the extension cord you use will supply sufficient power to the tool. WARNING: installing Do not permit fingers to touch the terminals or removing the plug to or from the outlet. of plug when WARNING: If not properly grounded and GFCI protected this tool can cause an electrical shock, particularly when used in damp locations, in proximity to plumbing, or out of doors. If an electrical shock occurs there is the potential of a secondary hazard, such as your hands contacting the saw blade. 5 EXTENSIONCORDS ALWAYS periodicallyinspect tool cord and extension cords for damage. Have damaged tool cord repaired at a Sears Service Center. Discard damaged extension cords. BE SURE to stay constantly aware of the cord location and keep it well away from the moving blade. ALWAYS use the proper extension cord, and MAKE SURE the cord is in good condition. ONLY USE a cord that is heavy enough to carry the current your tool will draw. An undersized cord will cause a current drop in line voltage resulting in a loss of power and overheating. A wire gauge size AWG (American Wire Gauge) of at least 18 is recommended for an extension cord 25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next heavier size. Smaller gauge wires, have greater capacity (14 gauge wire has more capacity than 16 gauge wire). DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to pull the plug from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock. When operating a power tool outside, ALWAYS use an outdoor extension cord marked "W-A" or "W". These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS (See Figure 1) IMPORTANT: We recommend using a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected receptacle because the blade of this saw is used in close proximity to water. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a GFCI protected matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. 1. DO NOT try to modify the plug provided. If it will not fit into the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. 2. The green-colored wire (with or without yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding conductor and must be connected to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box. 3. Improper connection of the equipment-grounding adapter can result in a risk of electrical shock. 4. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, DO NOT connect the equipment-grounding adapter to a live terminal. 5. If you do not fully understand the grounding instructions, or if you are in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded, check with a qualified electrician or service p.erson. Grounded, corded tools are intended for use on supply circuits having a nominal rating of less than 150 volts. 6 GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS (See Figure 1) cont.
