short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product
is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an
appropriate grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper installation of the grounding plug
can result in a risk of electric shock.
If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, do not
connect the green grounding wire to either flat blade terminal.
The wire with insulation having a green outer surface with or
without yellow stripes is the grounding wire and must be
connected to the grounding pin.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you
are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided. If the plug will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This product is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a
grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated below. Make
sure that the product is connected to an outlet having the
