When operating appliances, be pro-active and follow a few basic appliance safety tips after of course, getting familiar with the manual. Keep everyone safe, including yourself:
- Electricity and water shouldn’t meet – do not allow electrical cords to sit, lay or come into contact with water or other liquids.
- Never drape an appliance cord over, into a sink, or across a walking area or pathway. Gather excess cord and confine in a safe area behind the appliance.
- Always use more caution when operating appliances with small children in the home. And teach older children/young adults how to use appliances safely; don’t assume they already know.
- Steam can burn – always use care to protect your hands where steam can be present.
- Always place a humidifier on a stable platform, out of reach of baby’s crib or toddler’s access. Avoid draping cords that could be pulled. This is especially important when using a warm mist humidifier which contains very hot water.
- Do not use any appliance that has a frayed cord, exposed wires, melted plugs or burn marks on the prongs. Repair or replace damaged cords and plugs, or discard for safety sake.
- 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.
- Never use any appliance that does not have a UL seal of approval and certification.
- Use an appliance only for what it is designed and intended for; other uses could pose a hazard, void the warranty, or reduce its lifecycle.
- Appliance cords are short for a reason – to keep the appliance as close to the receptacle as possible to avoid a hanging/draping cord hazard.
- Only use appliances that are safe to use. Watch for unusual smells, noises or other sensory incidents that should not be present when operating that particular appliance. For instance, an iron that leaks could signal that interior seals are faulty; a humidifier that squeals or makes louder-than-usual noises could have worn fan bearings; a vacuum that emits a burning smell may signal an overheated motor.
- Appliance cords should never get overly hot (could be warm). This could signal an electrical problem with the appliance or the receptacle.
- Cords should not be used in close proximity to heat sources where it could become hot, melt, or deteriorate.
- Vintage appliance requires even more caution and care because of age deterioration and possibly lack of certification or misuse. Some vintage appliances may not meet current electrical codes and should be used for display purposes only.
- Appliances should be operated only on stable and dry surfaces.
- Appliances should seldom, if ever, be used with an extension cord. If you must, make certain the cord is certified and rated for that appliance’s wattage.
- An auto shut-off function is a wonderful appliance safety feature, but do not misuse it. If there’s only a smidgen of coffee left in the carafe, relying on the auto shut-off to turn the coffeemaker off in two hours, could pose a fire risk.
- Monitor appliance use. However, some appliances may be safe to operate while out of the room, others require constant attention.
