    • Solder the power cord's ground lead to the bronze nylon wire.

    • Ensure the correct leads are being soldered together (power to power, ground to ground). Soldering the incorrect leads together will result in hazardous conditions for both the TF6 and the user when the unit is powered on.

      • Consult the replacement power cord's user manual, packaging, or manufacturer in order to verify the power and ground leads.
