ELECTRICAL SAFETY
This appliance is equipped with a polarized plug in which one prong is
wider than the other. This is a safety feature to reduce the risk of electrical
shock. The plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If you are
unable to insert the plug into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the
plug in any way. Ginny’s cannot accept any liability for damage or injury
resulting from failure to observe these safety procedures.

HOW TO OPERATE
KEEP WARM AND AUTO SHUTOFF
After brewing, the coffeemaker will keep brewed coffee warm for 2
hours then will automatically shut off.
PAUSE AND SERVE
If at any time during the brewing process the carafe is removed from the
warming plate, the brewing process will pause until the carafe is placed back
onto the warming plate. Coffee will not begin to drip again until the carafe is
replaced.
WARNING: TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE UNIT, SPILLS OR BURNS,
USE THE PAUSE AND SERVE FEATURE ONLY AS
DIRECTED. DO NOT PLACE A MUG OR CUP ON THE
WARMING PLATE.
BEFORE MAKING A SECOND POT:
Turn the coffeemaker off and allow to cool for 10 minutes before
brewing a second pot of coffee. Empty and add new coffee grounds. To avoid
putting cold water into a hot carafe and causing damage to the carafe, place
carafe on the warming plate and use another container to pour cold water
into water reservoir. Use the water level indicator to determine water level.
