This pressure washer is provided with a
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
built into the plug of the power supply

protection from the risk of electrical shock.
Should replacement of the plug or cord
become necessary, use only identical
replacement parts that include GFCI
protection. See Figure 7 for testing
