Federal Clean Air Act.

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.

However, if you must use an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed (in the United

States) or a CSA-listed (in Canada), 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.

Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outl
