Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. If it
should malfunction or break down,
grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This appliance
is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding
conductor and
grounding plug. The plug must be
inserted into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.

connection of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service person if you are
in doubt as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not modify the
plug provided with the appliance - if it
will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal
120 volt circuit, and has a grounded plug
that looks like the plug shown. A
temporary adaptor that looks like the
adaptor shown may be used to connect
this plug to a 2-pole receptacle, as
shown. If a properly grounded outlet is
not available, the temporary adaptor
should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet can be installed by a
qualified electrician. The green colored
rigid ear, lug or the like extending from
the adaptor must be connected to a
permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the
adaptor is used, it must be held in place
by a metal screw.
