I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

Using your appliance
Loading your appliance
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any scraps of food, to avoid clogging the filters and consequently reducing the performance. Do not load very small items which can fall through the baskets.
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc. Large dishes and lids should be arranged around the edge of the basket, ensuring that the upper spray arm can turn freely.
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower basket can be easily lowered to allow you to load pots, pans and bowls. To lower the prongs: - Slightly pull them upwards and let them drop down (see picture). - To bring them back to the standing position, just pull them up again.
The cutlery basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard. Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket. Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as knives. Cutlery should be placed in the removable cutlery basket with the handles facing downwards. If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket, obstructing the lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the handles facing upwards. Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from sticking together. Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel cutlery. Place it in the cutlery basket separate from the others.
