In the event of an electric short circuit, grounding (earthing) reduces
the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. In order to prevent possible electric shock, this appliance
must be grounded. Improper use of the grounding plug can result in
an electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service person if
the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you
have doubts on whether the appliance is properly grounded.
