under certain conditions, we strongly
recommend against the use of an
extension cord. However, if you still elect
to use an extension cord, it is absolutely

and that the current carrying rating of
the cord in amperes be equivalent to
or greater than the branch circuit rating.
Such extension cords are obtainable
through your local appliance dealer.
