SAFEGUARDS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions

BAP825RC

should always be taken including the following:

1. Read all instructions before using appliance.

2. To avoid fire and shock hazard, plug the appliance

directly into an electrical outlet with the same voltage

as that indicated on the rating plate on your product.

3. If the filter is covered by a bag when shipped, remove

plastic bag before use.

4. Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. To avoid fire

hazard NEVER put the cord under rugs, near heat

registers, radiators, stoves or heaters.

5. To protect against electrical hazards DO NOT immerse

in water or other liquids. Do not use near water.

6. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is

used by, or near children or disabled persons. Children

should be supervised to ensure that they do not play

with the appliance.

7. Always unplug the air purifier before moving it, opening

the grill, changing the filters or whenever the air purifier is

not in use. Be sure to pull by the plug and not the cord.

8. NEVER drop or insert any object into any openings.

9. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or

plug, if motor fan fails to rotate, after the appliance

malfunctions, or if it has been dropped or damaged in

any manner. Return appliance to manufacturer for

examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment or repair.

10.Use appliance only for the intended household use as

described in this manual. Any other use not recommended

by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury

to persons. The use of attachments not recommended or

sold by the manufacturer may cause hazards.

11.Do not use outdoors.

12.Never block the air openings, or place on soft surface,

such as bed or sofa, as this could cause the unit to

tip over thus blocking the air intake opening.

13.Keep unit from heated surfaces and open flames.

14.DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or

mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void

the warranty. The inside of the unit contains no user
