The product must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short
circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing
an escape wire for the electric current. This product is equipped
with a cord having a grounding wire with an appropriate
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with
all local codes and ordinances.
DANGER - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk
of electric shock.
If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, do not
connect the grounding wire to either flat blade terminal. The
grounding wire has green insulation, with or without yellow
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to
whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided; if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
This product is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a
grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A.
Make sure the product is connected to an outlet having the same
configuration as the plug. A temporary adapter which looks like
the adapter illustrated in Figures B & C, may be used to connect
the plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in Figure B if a properly
grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should
only be used 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.


Use only a three-pronged extension cord that has a 3-blade
grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on
the product. Make sure your extension cord is UL/ETL/CSA listed
and is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure
to use one heavy enough for the current - for lengths less than
18 feet use a No. 18 AWG. or heavier, for more than 18 feet use
No. 16 AWG. If in doubt use a heavier gauge. An undersized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and


Make sure unit is clean and dry before storing. Store in a dry
location. The electrical cord should not be crimped during storage
to prevent damage
Attention: The temporary adapter shown in sketch B and C is not for use in
Canada. Use only a grounded outlet with this unit.
