To reduce the risk of electrical shock, turn the power switch off and disconnect the polarized plug from the electrical outlet BEFORE performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks.
  • Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep openings free of dust, lint, hair and anything that may reduce airflow.
    Keep hair, loose clothing and fingers away from openings. Turn OFF device controls before unplugging the appliance.

  • This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
