IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
3. To protect against electrical hazards, do not immerse cord, plugs, or
base in water or other liquid.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or
near children.
5. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow
to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning
the appliance.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner.
Return appliance to the nearest FARBERWARE® authorized service facility
for examination, repair or adjustment.
7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended or sold by
FARBERWARE® may result in fire, electric shock or injury to persons.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch
hot surfaces.
10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a
heated oven.
11. Always fill the Percolator first, then set the appliance onto the
Power Base, and then plug cord into wall outlet. To disconnect,
remove Percolator Body from Power Base, then remove plug from
wall outlet.
12. Do not operate without adding water first.
13. Be sure to unplug the appliance once the Percolator has been
emptied and has been removed from the Power Base.
14. Do not use appliance for other than intended household use.

FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other): To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to
fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully
in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
SHORT CORD INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is
exercised in their use.
If a longer extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of
the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating
of the appliance, and (2) 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 unintentionally.
