3-prong wall outlet.
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.
The air conditioner should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.
Power cord includes a current interrupter device. A test and reset button is provided on the plug case. The device should be tested on a periodic basis by first pressing the TEST button and then the RESET button. If the TEST button does not trip or if the RESET button will not stay engaged, discontinue use of the air conditioner and contact a qualified service technician.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.

USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS115-Volt models only
The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.
If the adapter ground terminal breaks, DO NOT
USE the air conditioner until a proper ground has been established.
Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a wall outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal, and not insulated, and the wall outlet is grounded through the house wiring. You should have the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
However, if you must use an adapter, where local codes permit, a temporary connection may be made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall outlet by use of a UL-listed adapter available at most local hardware stores.
When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter, alway
