Cause Cause

        

            The power outlet can be heated due to overload when the air conditioner is connected to wiring

            that does not meet the standards as the product consumes a high amount of electricity.

How to fix How to fix

 

             Please avoid plugging a product into a multi-strip outlet. Use a single wall socket for safety.

               Use of multi-outlet strips can activate the safety device or overheat the wires due to overloads.
