2. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has
a polarized plug (i.e. one blade is wider than the other).
Use this appliance only with a polarized, UL-listed (CSA
certied in Canada) extension cord recommended for
outdoor use. The appliance plug will t into a polarized
extension cord only one way.
If the appliance plug does not t fully into the extension
cord, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not t, obtain
a correct polarized extension cord. A polarized extension
cord will require the use of a polarized wall outlet. The
extension cord plug will t into the polarized wall outlet

outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not t,
contact a qualied electrician to install the proper wall
outlet. Do not modify the appliance plug, extension cord
receptacle or extension cord plug in any way.

suitable for outdoor use, such as SW, SOW, STW, STOW,
SJTW or SJTOW.

condition. When using an extension cord, make sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. For lengths less than 50 feet, a No. 14 AWG
extension cord should be used. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
4. To prevent the appliance cord from disconnecting from the
extension cord during operation, make a knot with the two
cords as shown in Table 1.

cord or yank the cord to disconnect it from the receptacle.
Keep the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
