Grounding
(Earthing)
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.
