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 must be grounded. If it should malfunction or
breakdown, 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
D A N G E R
inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a
grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A. A
temporary adapter which looks like the adapter illustrated in Figure
B may be used to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle, as
shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet, Figure 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.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter
is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.
