POLARIZED PLUG (120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the
risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
Warning : This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent
removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt
to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should
be done only by authorized service personnel.
The cord of this appliance was selected to reduce the possibility of tangling in or tripping
over a longer cord. If more length is needed, use an extension cord rated no less than
15 amperes. (For 220 volts rated products, use an extension cord rated no less than
6 amperes.) When using an extension cord, do not let it drape over the working area
or dangle where someone could accidentally trip over it. Handle cord carefully for longer
life; avoid jerking or straining it at outlet and appliance connections.
Note: If the power supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by qualified
personnel or in Latin America by an authorized service center.
