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 will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in
the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the
plug in any way.
This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent removal of the bottom
cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the bottom cover.
There are no user serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service
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 must be replaced by the manufacturer or its
service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
