IMPORTANTES MESURES DE SÉCURITÉ
L’utilisation d’un appareil électrique demande certaines précautions:
LIRE TOUTES LES INSTRUCTIONS AVANT DE FAIRE FONCTIONNER CET APPAREIL
AVERTISSEMENT !
Pour réduire les risques d’incendie, de choc électrique ou de blessure:
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
Ne pas laisser l’appareil sans surveillance lorsqu’il est branché. Débrancher lorsque l’appareil n’est pas utilisé et avant l’entretien.
Pour réduire les risques de choc électrique, utiliser à l’intérieur seulement.
Ne pas permettre aux enfants de jouer avec l’appareil. Une attention particulière est nécessaire lorsque l’appareil est utilisé par
des enfants ou à proximité de ces derniers.
N’utiliser que conformément à cette notice avec les accessoires recommandés par le fabricant.
Ne pas utiliser si le câble ou la fiche est endommagé. Retourner l’appareil à un atelier de réparation s’il ne fonctionne pas bien,
s’il est tombé ou s’il a été endommagé, oublié à l’extérieur ou immergé.
Ne pas tirer soulever ou traîner l’appareil par le câble. Ne pas utiliser le câble comme une poignée, le coincer dans l’embrasure
d’une porte ou l’appuyer contre des arêtes vives ou des coins. Ne pas faire rouler l’appareil sur le câble. Garder le câble à l’écart
des surfaces chaudes.
Ne pas débrancher en tirant sur le câble. Tirer plutôt la fiche.
Ne pas toucher la fiche ou l’appareil avec des mains humides.
N’insérer aucun objet dans les ouvertures. Ne pas utiliser l’appareil lorsqu’une ouverture est bloquée. S’assurer que de la
poussière, de la peluche, des cheveux ou d’autres matières ne réduisent pas le débit d’air.
Maintenir les cheveux, les vêtements amples, les doigts et toutes les parties du corps à l’écart des ouvertures et des pièces
mobiles.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This appliance must be grounded. If it should electrically malfunction, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
DANGER!
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance.
If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure 1 below. A temporary
adapter illustrated in Figures 2 and 3 may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in Figure 2 if a properly grounded outlet
is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (Figure 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, tab, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded
outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. Grounding adapters are not approved for use in Canada.
Replace the plug if the grounding pin is damaged or broken.
The Green (or Green/Yellow) wire in the cord is the grounding wire. When replacing a plug, this wire must be attached to the grounding pin only.
Extension cords connected to this machine should be 12 gauge, three-wire cords with three-prong plugs and outlets. DO NOT use extension cords
more than 50 feet (15 m) long.
PLEASE NOTE: FOR NORTH AMERICA ONLY

INSTRUCTIONS VISANT LA MISE À LA TERRE
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Cet appareil doit être mis à la terre. En cas de défaillance ou de panne éventuelles, la mise a la terre fournit au courant un chemin de moindre
résistance qui réduit le risque de choc électrique. Cet appareil est pourvu d’un cordon muni d’un conducteur de terre et d’une fiche avec broche
de terre. La fiche doit être branchée dans une prise appropriee correctement installée et mise à la terre conformément aux règlements et
ordonnances municipaux.
AVERTISSEMENT !
Un conducteur de terre mal raccordé peut entraîner un risque de choc électrique. Consulter un électricien ou un technicien d’entretien
qualifié si vous n’êtes pas certain que la prise est correctement mise à la terre. Ne pas modifier la fiche fournie avec l’appareil - si elle
ne peut être insérée dans la prise, faire installer une prise adéquate par un électricien qualifié.
Cet appareil est destiné à un circuit de 120 V et est muni d’une fiche de terre semblable à celle illustrée par le croquis 1. Un adaptateur temporaire
semblable à celui illustré par le croquis 2 et C peut être utilisé pour brancher cette fiche à une prise bipolaire comme l’illustre le croquis 2 si une
prise avec mise à la terre n’est pas disponible. L’adaptateur temporaire devrait etre utilisé seulement jusqu’à ce qu’une prise avec mise à la terre
soit installée par un électricien qualifié. L’oreille rigide ou le crochet ou autre dispositif semblable, de couleur verte, prolongeant l’adaptateur doit
Iêtre raccordé à un élément correctement mis à la terre comme le couvercle d’une boîte de sortie mise à la terre. L’adaptateur doit être fixé par
une vis métallique. Note: Au Canada, I’utilisation d’un adaptateur temporaire n’est pas autorisée par le Code canadien de l’électricité.
Remplacez la prise si la prise de terre est abîmée ou cassée.
Le fil Vert (ou Vert/Jaune) dans la ganse est le fil de terre. Lors du remplacement d´une prise, ce fil doit être raccordé à la prise de terre uniquement.
Les ralonges connectées à cette machine doivent avoir 12 mesures, trois ganses de fil ayant trois fiches masculines féminines tree-prong plugs
and outlets. N´UTILISEZ PAS de ralonge de plus de 15 m (50 pieds) de long.
VEUILLEZ NOTER: CES INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNENT UNIQUEMENT L’AMÉRIQUE DU NORD
