This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to force the plug into an improper outlet. For U.S. residents only: In the event of an unusual circumstance such as immersion, the protective device will not allow the dryer to operate. Periodically check the safety plug to verify it is in proper working order. Plug the appliance in an electrical outlet and press the test button. The dryer should stop immediately. To resume operation, press the reset button. Universal Voltage For use in several countries outside North America, the voltage selector may need to be placed in the 250-volt position. Confirm the voltage available at each location before using the appliance. For connection to a 250-volt supply, use an attachment plug adapter of the proper configuration for the power supply receptacle. IMPORTANT NOTE: The dryer switch must be in and remain in the “low” operating position when using 250 volts. This is normal for universal voltage appliances.
