COMPACTOR SAFETY Your safety and the safety of others are very important. We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages. This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING." These words mean: You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions. You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in NOTE: The compactor drawer should be about 1/2 full death, fire, or electrical shock. before the compactor can begin to compress the load. You may hear a noise when glass breaks. Strong glass bottles may not break at all. Recommended Grounding Method The trash in a full compactor bag will be about 14 the size of its original bulk. This compactor is for use on a single phase, 115-volt, 60 Hz, AC only 15 or 20 ampere fused and properly ground- ed circuit and is equipped with a grounding plug as shown below. Time delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. Do not modify the plug attached to the compactor; use only with a grounded receptacle. Load bulky trash, bottles, and cans in the center of the drawer. Bottles or cans not placed in the center may become caught between the ram and the drawer. The drawer monitor switch senses a "misload" and causes the ram to return to the "up" position without compacting. This compactor must be grounded while in use to reduce the risk of electric shock. The compactor is equipped with a three-conductor cord and three-prong grounding-type plug to fit the proper grounding-type receptacle. The green (or green and yellow) conductor in the cord is the ground- ing wire. Never connect the green (or green and yellow) wire to a live terminal. The outlet should be properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. No adapter should be used with this appliance. 4
