Other Consumer Safety Information
This appliance intended for household use only.
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming
tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer cord is necessary an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of
the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the coffeemaker. Care must be
taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another high wattage appliance on the same
circuit with your coffeemaker.
