To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

la fiche ne peut toujours pas être insérée dans la prise, faire installer une prise adéquate
par un électricien qualifié. Ne pas modifier la fiche.
