6A.An appliance and cart combination
should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven sur-
faces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting The appliance should be mounted
to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation The appliance should be situated so that its loca-
tion or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For
example, the appliance should not be situated on a bed, sofa,
rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings;
or if placed in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabi-
net that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation open-
ings, there should be free space of at least 20 cm (8 in.) and an
opening behind the appliance.
9. Heat The appliance should be situated away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (in-
cluding amplifiers) that produce heat.
10. Power Sources The appliance should be connected to a power
supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or
as marked on the appliance.
11. Polarization If the appliance is provided with a polarized
plug having one blade wider than the other, please read the
The polarization of the plug is a safety feature. The polarized
plug will only fit the outlet one way. If the plug does not fit
fully into the outlet, try reversing it. If there is still trouble, the
user should seek the services of a qualified electrician. Under
no circumstances should the user attempt to defeat the
polarization of the plug.
12. 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, especially near plugs, conve-
nience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appli-
13. Cleaning The appliance should be cleaned only as recom-
mended by the manufacturer.

16. Object and Liquid Entry Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
17. Damage Requiring Service The appliance should be
serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. The power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or
exhibits a marked change in performance; or
E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
18. Servicing The user should not attempt to service the appliance
beyond that described in the operating instructions. All other
servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.
19. Outdoor Antenna Grounding If an outside antenna is con-
nected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so
as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up
static charges. Article 810 of the National 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, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding elec-
trode. See Figure 1.
