POLARIZED PLUG (120V models only) 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 into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.


Warning: This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent the removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service personnel.


  1. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  2. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  3. If an extension cord is used:
    • The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
    • If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.
    • The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
