a grounding plug. It must only be plugged
into an outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.

can result in a risk of electrical shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or
service person if you aren’t sure if the outlet
is properly grounded. DO NOT MODIFY THE
PLUG. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. This appliance is designed for
use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a
grounding attachment plug that looks like
the plug in the drawing above. Make certain
that the appliance is connected to an outlet
having the same configuration as the plug.
