SOME DOS anD DOn'TS On THE SafE USE Of EqUiPMEnT
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety
standards but, like any electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the
best results and safety is to be assured.
read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads
and inter-connections between the pieces of equipment) are properly made and
in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Switch off and withdraw the
mains plug before making or changing connections.
consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or
safety of your equipment.
be careful with glass panels or doors on the equipment.
route the mains lead so that it is not likely to be walked on, crushed, chafed, or
subjected to excessive wear and tear or heat.
remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
obstruct the ventilation openings of the equipment with items such as
newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc. Overheating will cause damage and
shorten the life of the equipment.
allow electrical equipment to be exposed to dripping or splashing, or objects
filled with liquids, such as vases.
place hot objects or naked flame sources such as lighted candles or nightlights
on, or close, to equipment. High temperatures can melt plastic and lead to fires.
use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wooden screws. To ensure complete
safety always fit the manufacturer's approved stand or legs with the fixings
provided and according to the instructions.
use equipment such as personal stereos or radios that will distract you from the
requirements of traffic safety.
listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your
leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated
that is designed for unattended operation or has a stand-by mode. Switch off
using the ON/OFF switch on the equipment or at the mains socket, and make
sure that your family knows how to do this. Special arrangements may need to be
made for infirm or handicapped people.
continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working
normally, or if it is damaged in any way – switch off, remove the mains plug from
the mains socket and consult your dealer.
NEVER let anyone especially children push anything into holes, slots or any other
opening in the equipment – this could result in a fatal electric shock.
NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind. It is better to
be safe than sorry!
