ventilation. For example, it should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar surface that may block the
ventilation openings; or placed in a built-in installation, such as bookcase or cabinet that may impede the
flow of air through the ventilation openings.
3. Heat – The unit should be situated away from heat source such as radiators, heat register, stoves, or other
appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
4. Power Sources – The unit should be connected to a power supply only of the type described in the
operating instructions or as marked on the appliance.
5. Grounding or Polarization – This product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the polarized plug.
6. Power Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked
on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. Paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience

7. Cleaning – Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
8. Non-Use Periods – The power cord of the unit should be unplugged from the outlet when it is to be left
unused for a long period of time.
