Awesome quality manual. You really saved my bacon with this one. Was looking for some specific information with regards to my "new" vintage VCR that didn't come with the owners manual. This site is truely a goldmine of available manuals. The quality of the scans are top notch.
Thank-you so much for this awesome manual. If you're looking for this Sony SL-HF400 owners manual, this is the one you NEED to buy. Definitely worth the money.
The manual was made available promptly. I is a clean scan of the original. I had no problem downloading it. The scan was well centered and cleanly formatted. It is as good a product as can be had without being the original document.
Received downlink in less then 8 hours, Item was in good copy condition, and told me how to program the clock timer. The price was very resonable, and the process was very automated and was GREAT to work with.
Fast service, document is OK. Thanks! Searched for it long time.

Using the oven
Always cook with the oven door closed. The heating elements do not work when theoven door is not completely closed. Stand clear when opening the drop down oven door. Do not allow it to fall open - support the door using the door handle, until it is fully open. The oven has four shelf levels, and is supplied with two shelves. The shelf positions are counted from the bottom of the oven as shown in the diagram. It is important that these shelves are correctly positioned as shown in the diagram. Do not place cookware directly on the oven base. Attention! - Do not place objects on the oven base and do not cover any part of the oven with aluminium foil while cooking, as this could cause a heat build-up which would affect the baking results and damage the oven enamel. Always place pans, heat-resisting pans and aluminium trays on the shelf which has been inserted in the shelf runners. Carefully supervise cooking with fat or oil, since these types of foodstuff can result in a fire, if overheated. For the same reason, be careful when placing or removing food in the oven, not to let any fat or oil fall on the oven base. If this happens, carefully clean the oven to avoid unpleasant smells or smoke. â¢ â¢ â¢

Always use oven gloves to remove and replace food in the oven. Always ensure that you are using oven proof baking trays, oven dishes, etc. Do not place baking trays, cake tins or aluminium foil directly on the base of the oven. This could cause a heat build-up which could affect the performance of the oven and damage the oven enamel. Carefully supervise cooking with fat or oil, since these types of foodstuff can result in a fire, if overheated. For the same reason, be careful when placing or removing food in the oven, not to let any fat or oil fall on the oven base. If this happens, carefully clean the oven to avoid unpleasant smells or smoke.
Condensation and Steam
The oven is supplied with an exclusive system which produces a natural circulation of air and the constant recycling of steam. This system makes it possible to cook in a steamy environment and keep the dishes soft inside and crusty outside. Moreover, the cooking time and energy consumption are reduced to a minimum. During cooking steam may be produced which can be released when opening the oven door. This is absolutely normal. However, always stand back from the oven when opening the oven door during cooking or at the end of it to allow any build up of steam or heat to release. If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface on the outside of the oven, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not a fault with the oven. To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
â¢ â¢ â¢ Use any oven proof cookware which will withstand temperatures of 250Â°C. Baking trays, oven dishes, etc. should not be placed directly against the grid covering the fan at the back of the oven, or placed on the oven base. Do not use baking trays larger than 30 cm x 35 cm (12 in x 14 in) as they will restrict the circulation of heat and may affect performance.
The effects of dishes on cooking results
Dishes and tins vary in their thickness, conductivity, colour, etc. which affects the way they transmit heat to the food inside them. A Aluminium, earthenware, oven glassware and bright shiny utensils reduce cooking and base browning. B Enamelled cast iron, anodized aluminium, aluminium with non-stick interior and coloured exterior and dark, heavy utensils increase cooking and base browning.
