• Do not leave any rubber or vinyl on the machine for an extended period of time,
otherwise the machine may be stained.
• Do not get the machine wet, such as by handling it with wet hands or spilling
beverages on it.
• Do not expose the machine to extremely high temperatures or high humidity. Never
leave it on the dashboard, in the back of your car, near heaters or other hot
