IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following.
• Read all instructions carefully.
• Make sure the voltage of your electrical system corresponds to the voltage shown on the bottom of the
machine.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
• To protect against fire, electrical shock and personal injury, do not immerse cord, plug or appliance in
water or other liquid.
• Keep the appliance out of the reach of children and do not leave appliance unattended while in operation.
• Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
• Do not operate with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged
in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair or
adjustment.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may result in fire, electrical
shock, or personal injury.
• Do not use outdoors.
• Make sure the power cord does not hang over the edge of the table or counter-top to avoid getting accidentally caught or entangled.
• Do not place the appliance or its electrical parts on or near electric stoves, cooking surfaces, or gas burners.
• Plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, first turn machine “off”, then remove plug from wall outlet.
• Do not use the appliance for other than the intended use. This appliance is to be utilized for domestic
use only. The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage caused by improper, incorrect, or
irresponsible use.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove the cover or the exterior of
the unit. Don’t attempt to repair or modify the machine, doing so will void the warranty. Repair
should be done by authorized service personnel only!
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
THIS APPLIANCE IS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
SHORT CORD INSTRUCTIONS
-
-
A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a
longer cord.
Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the electrical rating
of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3- wire, grounding type cord, the extension should be
a GROUNDING TYPE 3 - WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
Your 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.
