When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
❑ Read all instructions.
❑ Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
❑ To protect against a risk of electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug
or any part of this product in water or other liquid, or use on wet surfaces.
❑ Do not place or store appliance where it can fall or be pulled into a sink
or tub.
❑ Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
❑ Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return
the product to the nearest authorized service facility for examination,
repair or electrical or mechanical adjustment. Or, call the appropriate
toll-free number listed on the cover of this manual.
❑ Do not use outdoors.
❑ Do not allow the cord to touch hot surfaces or hang over the edge of table
or counter. Do not wrap the cord around the appliance.
❑ To disconnect, grasp plug and remove from outlet. Do not pull
by the cord.
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.
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 cord). 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.
