IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the
use of an extension cord.

USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain
conditions, we strongly recommend against the use
of an adapter plug.
However, if you must use an adapter, where
local codes permit, a temporary connection may
be made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall
outlet by use of a UL-listed adapter available at
most local hardware stores.
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned
with the larger slot in the wall outlet to provide
proper polarity in the connection of the power
cord.
Read and follow this Safety Information carefully.

However, if you must use an extension cord,
it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,
14 gauge, 3-wire grounding type appliance
extension cord having a grounding type plug
and outlet and that the electrical rating of the
cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 125 volts.
When disconnecting the power cord from the
adapter, always hold the adapter in place with
one hand while pulling the power cord plug
with the other hand. If this is not done, the
adapter ground terminal is very likely to break
with repeated use.
If the adapter ground terminal breaks, DO NOT
USE the dehumidifier until a proper ground
has been established.
Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a wall outlet
cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the
cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and the wall
outlet is grounded through the house wiring. You should
have the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
