outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these
instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
If codes permit and a separate
ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Important: Observe all governing
codes and ordinances.
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15- or 20-
ampere fused electrical supply is
required. A time-delay fuse or circuit
breaker is recommended.
A separate circuit serving only this

electrically grounded in accordance
with local codes, or in the absence of
local codes with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70*.

event of malfunction or breakdown,
grounding will reduce the risk of

least resistance for electric current.
