GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
This appliance 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 appliance is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be
inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Grounded Plug

C
WARNING - Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check
with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify
the plug provided with the appliance – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-V circuit, and has a grounded plug that looks like the plug illustrated in sketch A.
A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole
receptacle as shown in sketch B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only
until a properly grounded outlet (sketch A) can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the
like extending from the adapter 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. Exception: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter
is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code, C22.1.
