Using your AirPort Extreme Safely
The only way to shut off power completely to your AirPort Extreme is to disconnect it
from the power source.
When connecting or disconnecting your AirPort Extreme, always hold the plug by its
sides. Keep fingers away from the metal part of the plug.
Your AirPort Extreme should not be opened for any reason, even when it is
unplugged. If your AirPort Extreme needs service, see “Learning More, Service, and
Support” on page 33.
Never force a connector into the ports. If the connector and port do not join with
reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make sure that the connector matches
the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
About Operating and Storage Temperatures
When you are using your AirPort Extreme, it is normal for the case to get warm.
The AirPort Extreme case functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside
the unit to the cooler air outside.

in or near water or wet locations.

AirPort Extreme before cleaning up the spill.

to drop your AirPort Extreme when transporting the device.
