For personal safety, this appliance must be
properly grounded.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with

The wall receptacle and circuit should be checked
by a qualified electrician to make sure the
receptacle is properly grounded.

installed, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the consumer to have it replaced by
a properly grounded 3-prong wall receptacle.
