9. An appliance and cart combina-
tion should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause
the appliance and cart combina-
tion to overturn.
10. Ventilation Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the appliance and
to protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be
blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by
placing the appliance on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar sur-
face. The appliance should not be placed in a built-in installa-
tion such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is pro-
vided. There should be free space of at least 20 cm (8 in.) and an
opening behind the appliance.
11. Power Sources The appliance should be operated only from
the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you
are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult
your appliance dealer or local power company.
12. Grounding or Polarization The appliance may be equipped
with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the
plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
13. Power-Cord Protection Power-supply cords should be routed
so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items
placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords
at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit
from the appliance.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the appliance, be sure the antenna or cable
system is grounded so as to provide some protection against volt-
age surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the Na-
tional Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with
regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna-discharge unit, size
of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, con-
nection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the ground-
ing electrode. See Figure 1.
15. Lightning For added protection for the appliance during a light-
ning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect
the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the
appliance due to lightning and power-line surges.
16. Power Lines An outside antenna system should not be located
in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or cir-
cuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care
should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or cir-
cuits as contact with them might be fatal.
17. Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of
fire or electric shock.
18. Object and Liquid Entry Never push objects of any kind into
the appliance through openings as they may touch dangerous
voltage points or short-out parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the appliance.
19. Servicing Do not attempt to service the appliance yourself as
opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous volt-
age or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service per-
20. Damage Requiring Service Unplug the appliance form the
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel un-
der the following conditions:
A. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
B. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the ap-
C. If the appliance has been exposed to rain or water,
D. If the appliance does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions as an improper adjust-
ment of other controls may result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore
the appliance to its normal operation,
E. If the appliance has been dropped or damaged in any way,
F. When the appliance exhibits a distinct change in performance
this indicates a need for service.
