Circuit Requirements SECTION 2: POWER SUPPLY Availability Circuit Requirements for 220V Before installing the machine, consider the avail- This machine is prewired to operate on a 220V power supply circuit that has a verified ground and ability and proximity of the required power supply circuit.
Grounding Requirements This machine MUST be grounded. In the event of certain malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. Improper connection of the equipment-grounding wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The wire with green insulation (with or without yellow No adapter should be used with the stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire.
SECTION 3: SETUP Unpacking This machine presents serious injury hazards Your machine was carefully packaged for safe to untrained users. Read transportation. Remove the packaging materials through this entire manu- from around your machine and inspect it. If you al to become familiar with discover any damage, please call us immediately the controls and opera- at (570) 546-9663 for advice.
Inventory Inventory The following is a description of the main compo- nents shipped with your machine. Lay the compo- nents out to inventory them. If any non-proprietary parts are missing (e.g. a nut or a washer), we will gladly replace them; or for the sake of expediency, replacements can be obtained at your local hardware store.
