When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury, including the following:

  • Read all instructions.
  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons do not immerse cords, plugs, or appliances in water or other liquid.
  • Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  • Unplug from the outlet when either the appliance or display clock is not in use, and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Contact Consumer Support at the number listed in this manual.
  • The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may result in fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.

  • To disconnect, make sure the brew indicator light is off by pressing the ON/OFF button, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  • Do not use this appliance for other than intended use.
  • Keep the lid on the carafe when in use.
  • Scalding may occur if the lid is removed during the brewing cycles.
  • The carafe is designed for use with this appliance. It must never be used on a range top.
  • Do not set a hot carafe on a wet or cold surface.
  • Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe that has a loose or weakened handle.
  • Do not clean the carafe with cleansers, steel wool pads,s or other abrasive material.

  • Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.

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.

This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent 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.
