This appliance may have a polarized plug — one blade
is wider than the other. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse
it. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to defeat this safety feature by modifying 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 Underwriters
Laboratories (UL)-Listed or appropriate agency-


approved extension cord rated no less than 15-amperes
and 120 volts. 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.
This appliance is equipped with tamper-resistant screws
to prevent removal of the covers. To reduce the risk of
fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the
covers. There are no user serviceable parts inside.
Repair should be done only by authorized service
