Grounding Instructions
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Safety Warning Labels and Serial Number
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the product – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
If you connect the machine to an outlet with GFI (ground fault interrupt) or AFI (arc fault interrupt), machine operation can cause the circuit to trip.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-V circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated below. A temporary
adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown if a properly
grounded outlet is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. The tab for the grounding
screw must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in
place by a metal screw.
