A Consumer Guide to Product Safety
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When used in the directed manner, this unit has been designed and manufactured to ensure your personal safety. However, improper use can result in
potential electrical shock or fire hazards. Please read all safety and operating instructions carefully before installation and use, and keep these instructions
handy for future reference. Take special note of all warnings listed in these instructions and on the unit.
1. Water and Moisture – The unit should not be used near water. For example: near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming
pool or in a wet basement.
2. Ventilation – The unit should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, it should not
be situated on a bed, sofa, rug or similar surface that may block ventilation openings. Also, it should not be placed in a built-in installation, such
as a bookcase or cabinet, that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
3. Heat – The unit should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, 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 itself.
5. Grounding or Polarization – This product is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other).
As a safety feature this plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to fit the plug into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the
plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of your polarized plug by forcing the
plug into the outlet.
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. It is always best to have a clear area from where the cord exits the unit to where it is plugged into an AC outlet.
7. Cleaning – The unit should be cleaned only as recommended. See the Maintenance section of this manual for cleaning instructions.
8. Objects and Liquid Entry – Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into any openings or vents located on
the product.
9. Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer.
10. Lightning and Power Surge Protection – Unplug the unit from the wall outlet during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
11. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in fire or electric shock.
12. Damage Requiring Service – The unit should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. the power supply cord or plug has been damaged.
B. objects have fallen into or liquid has been spilled into the enclosure.
C. the unit has been exposed to rain.
D. the unit has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
E. the unit exhibits a marked change in performance or does not operate normally.
13. Antenna – Do not connect an external antenna to the unit.
14. Periods of Nonuse – If the unit is to be left unused for an extended period of time, such as a month or longer, the power cord should be unplugged
from the unit to prevent damage or corrosion.
15. Servicing – The user should not attempt to service the unit beyond those methods described in the user’s operating instructions. Service methods
not covered in the operating instructions should be referred to qualified service personnel.

Installation and Maintenance
Installation
1. Remove the unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing materials in case unit
needs to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the materials, please dispose of them properly.
2. Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources
of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, and strong magnetic fields.
3. After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the AC cord into an outlet.
“Sure Alarm” Battery Backup Installation
It is strongly recommended that 2 “AAA” batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below, to activate the
“Sure Alarm” battery backup feature. In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected or a power failure
or other interruption occurs, the “Sure Alarm” system will maintain the clock and alarm settings for the life of
the batteries, ensuring that the alarm will sound at the set time (note: while operating on battery power, all set
alarms will sound as a buzzer). When power has been restored, the clock will cease using the battery power,
and will once again operate on AC power.
1. Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery compartment door.
2. Install 2 "AAA" batteries (alkaline batteries are recommended for longer life) into
the battery compartment, making sure that the + and – ends match the diagram
printed inside the compartment.
3. Slide the battery compartment door back on, making sure the door locks into
place, and gently return the unit to its upright position.
Battery Compartment
Maintenance
1. Place the unit on a level surface away from direct sunlight or sources of excessive heat.
2. Protect your furniture when placing the unit on natural wood or wood with a lacquered finish. A cloth or other
protective material should be placed between the unit and the furniture.
3. Clean the casing with a soft cloth moistened only with mild soap and water. Stronger cleaning agents, such
as thinner or similar agents, are not recommended, as they may damage the surface of the case.
4. If the unit is not to be used for a prolonged period, such as a month or longer, remove the batteries to prevent
possible corrosion. Should the battery compartment become corroded or dirty, clean the compartment
thoroughly and replace the batteries.
