When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and save all instructions.
2. To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not immerse base,
motor, cord, or plug in water or other liquid.
3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by
or near children.
4. This appliance should not be used by children.
5. Unplug cord from outlet when not in use, before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning.
6. Avoid contacting moving parts.
7. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug
or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged
in any manner. Call our toll-free customer service number
for information on examination, repair, or electrical or
mechanical adjustment.
8. The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the
appliance manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
9. Do not use your food processor if any part is broken.
10. Do not use appliance outdoors.
11. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot
12. Keep hands and utensils away from moving blade and disc while
processing food to reduce the risk of severe personal injury and/
or damage to the food processor. A rubber scraper may be used
but ONLY when the food processor is not running.
13. The blade and disc are sharp. Handle carefully. Store out of reach
of children.
14. To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or disc
on base without first putting bowl properly in place.
15. Be certain lid is securely locked in place before operating
840213700 ENv03.indd 2
16. Never feed food into food chute by hand. Always use the food
17. Do not attempt to defeat the lid interlock mechanism.
18. Make sure the blade or disc has come to a full stop before
removing lid.
19. To reduce the risk of injury, be sure to insert or remove blade
and disc using hubs provided for this purpose. Use caution when
removing blade and disc from the bowl, when emptying the
bowl, and when cleaning.
20. Check that the control is OFF (O) before plugging cord into wall
outlet. To disconnect, turn the control to OFF (O); then remove
plug from wall outlet.
21. Be sure to turn switch to OFF (O) position after each use. Always
use the pushers to clear the food chute. When this method is not
possible, unplug cord from outlet and disassemble unit to
remove the remaining food.
22. The appliance is not intended for commercial, professional, or
industrial use. It is designed and built exclusively for household
use only.
23. Never use appliance for a longer period or with a larger amount
of ingredients other than that recommended by appliance
24. The maximum rating of this unit is based on using the chopping/
mixing blade. Using the slicing/shredding disc may draw

Other Consumer Safety Information
This product is intended for household use only.
WARNING! Shock Hazard: This appliance has a polarized plug
(one wide blade) that reduces the risk of electric shock. The plug
fits only one way into a polarized outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using
an adapter. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, have an electrician replace the outlet.
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce
the hazards of becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be
used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to
or greater than the rating of the appliance. Care must be taken to
arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally
tripped over.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another highwattage appliance on the same circuit with your food processor.
