GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current. The power supply cord
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances.
WARNING:
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 appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the
power supply cord. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed.
