recommended by the manufacturer.
Portable cart - An appliance and cart
combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces
may cause the appliance and cart combination
to overturn.Ventilation - The unit should be situated with adequate space
around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured. Allow 10
cm clearance from the rear and the top of the unit, and 5 cm
from the each side.
Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are
provided for ventilation, and to ensure reliable operation of the
unit and to protect it from overheating, these openings must
not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be
blocked by placing the unit on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar
surface. This unit should not be placed in a built-in installation
such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.
Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind
into this unit through the cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short-circuit parts that could result
in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the
Electric Power Power Sources - This unit 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. To operate unit on

Grounding or Polarization - This unit is provided 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 polarized
Power-Cord Protection - Power-supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by

Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords,
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of
fire or electric shock. Outdoor Antenna 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
circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme
care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines
or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the unit, be sure the antenna or cable
system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.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 electrode. See the figure.
Lightning For added protection for this unit receiver during a lightning
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 unit due to
lightning and powerline surges. Maintenance Cleaning - Unplug this unit from the wall outlet before cleaning.
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp
cloth for cleaning. Damage Requiring Service Unplug this unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
-When the power cord or plug is damaged.
-If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit.
-If the unit has been exposed to rain or water.
-If the unit does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by
the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive

removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are required,
be sure the service technician has used replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer or having the same characteristics
as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in
fire, electric shock or other hazards.
