When operating electrical home appliances, please be pro-active and follow a few basic appliance safety tips which are given hereunder for the safety of you and everyone:

  • Before the very first use of any appliance, please read the instruction manual carefully.
  • Use an appliance only for what it is designed and intended for; other uses could create a risk, void the warranty or reduce its lifecycle.
  • The surface should be dry and stable on which the Appliance is to be used.
  • Never cover an appliance cord over or into a sink or across a walking area or pathway. Gather excess cord and confine in a safe area behind the appliance.
  • Do not use any appliance that has a worn cord, exposed wires, melted plugs or burn marks on the prongs. Please get it repaired for the sake of safety.
  • Please ensure that electrical cord is not sit, lay or come into contact with water or any other liquids.
  • Be Cautious for unusual smells, noises or other sensory incidents that should not be present when operating that particular appliance.
  • Appliance cords should never get overly hot (could be warm). This could signal an electrical problem with the appliance or the receptacle.
  • Appliances should rarely, if ever, be used with an extension cord. If you must, make sure the cord is certified and rated for that appliance's wattage.
  • Always use more caution when operating appliances with small children in the home.
  • Do not plug any appliance into a suspected faulty electrical receptacle.
  • Have a qualified person check any receptacles that show signs or arcing, flashing, smoke, are loose or give any concern.

Do's

  • Wear rubber soled shoes when operating electrical appliances.
  • Follow manufacturers' instructions when operating electrical devices.
  • Make sure outdoor electrical outlets are covered with weatherproof covers.
  • Use extension cords only for temporary applications.
  • Pull the plug itself, not the cord attached to it.
  • Disconnect any appliance that sparks and have it repaired immediately.
  • Always disconnect appliances before cleaning them.
  • Turn off appliances when you leave home.
  • Keep electrical cords away from hot appliances.
  • Keep appliances clean and free of dust, lint and grease.
  • Use moisture resistant cords during their use in outside.
  • Keep work areas clean and dry. Sparks can ignite wood scraps, sawdust and solvents.
  • Make sure your power tools are grounded or certified double insulated.
  • When utilizing adapters, make sure to screw in the wire for grounding.
