Manual was delivered in a timely manner and was all in English as advertised. The manuals I received when we moved into our flat were in German, Italian, and French. Having never used a steamer before, and not speaking/reading German very well, I needed an English Manual. this was a huge help.
This GRUNDIG UV5A Owner Manual is not only an instruction manual but a total functional circuit description of the Multimeter and includes circuit diagram at the end pages. It is very helpful for repairing and calibrating the instrument. It is written in two languages English and German for international support. It was very easy to repair my unit with this document. Regards, Regis Pauly, Electrical Engineer.
The owner's manual was evetything I thought it would be. I was able to print it out using both sides of the paper in quick order, saving me a search online for a used one.

The unit is preset to work with a voltage of single phase 230 V. Before making the connection make sure that: â the energy power available in the user's house is sufficient for the normal supply of this appliance (see rating plate). â the unit is correctly connected to earth through a suitable plug and according to the installation country Laws. â the socket or the omnipolar switch used for the connection must be easilv reached with the installed appliance. The appliance is supplied with electric cable, therefore you will have to fit it with a standard plug, suitable for the total electric load shown on the rating plate. The plug is to be inserted into a suitable wall socket. If you wish to directly connect to the mains, you have to interpose an omnipolar switch with a minimum opening between contacts of 3 mm, between the unit and the mains, complying with the existing regulations. The brown live wire (originating from the clamp of the appliance junction box) must always be connected to the phase of the mains supply. In any case, the supply cord must be positioned in such a way as it doesn't reach in any point a temperature higher by 50Â°C than the room temperature.
Replacement of the electric cable
Should the supply cord need to be replaced, use only the following cable types: H07 RN-F, H05 RN-F, H05 RRF, H05 VV-F, H05 V2V2-F (T90), H05 BB-F. It is necessary that the yellow/green earth wire is about 2 cm longer than the live and neutral ones (Fig. 19). After the connection, test the heating elements for about 3 minutes to ensure that they are working correctly. The manufacturer refuses any responsability in cases where normal safety measures are not observed.
