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.

Freezing Fresh Food
It is important that fresh food placed in the freezer is frozen quickly and that the food already in the freezer is heated as little as possible. If more than 3-4kg of food is to be frozen: 1. Turn the thermostat control knob to the highest setting ("Fast freeze"). The freezer will now run continuously creating a sufficient reserve of the temperature required. 2. Turn the thermostat control knob up 6-24 hours before placing new food in the freezer depending on how much food is to be frozen. 3. Place the food in the freezer and leave the thermostat set at 'fast freeze' for a further 24 hours. 4. Then turn the thermostat control knob back again. The freezer will return to normal storage temperature. If you forget to turn the thermostat control knob back, the freezer will not be damaged, but energy will be wasted.
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the fridge or at room temperature, depending on the time available. Small food items may even be cooked from frozen, in this case cooking will take longer. Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally should either be eaten as soon as possible, or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and then refrozen. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

Frozen Food Storage
When first starting the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to run your appliance for at least 2 hours before storing frozen food. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer. Do not open the lid frequently or leave it open longer than is necessary.
Do not put carbonated liquids in the freezer. Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer can cause a low temperature skin burn. Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns. In the event of a power cut, do not open the lid. The food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and the freezer is full. Should the food begin to thaw it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen.
