Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or
breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for
electrical current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-
grounding conductor and grounding plug (A). The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet (B) that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
(A)
GROUNDING PIN
DANGER-
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor
can result in the 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 grounding
plug that looks like the plug illustrated in sketch (A).
A temporary adapter (C) may be used to connect this plug to a
2-pole receptacle (D) if a properly grounded outlet is not
available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a
properly grounded outlet (B) can be installed by a qualified
electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like
extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. When-
ever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal
screw.
