Having bought a pre-owned Sony FM stereo tuner through eBay, it came without any manuals. It soon became clear that to get the best from this excellent tuner I needed a decent manual because much of the operation was not intuitive to a newboy to hi fi like me. I managed to download the official Sony multi-lingual manual from Owner-Manuals.com with no problem at all - a really quick and easy service. I'm very glad I did because I found out all the operations of the tuner and was then able to not only set it up quickly but also to get much more from it that poke-and-hope trialling would ever achieve. In my book $4.99 very well spent.

For your safety The product should only be used for its prescribed purpose, namely for domestic cooking of foodstuffs. Under no circumstances should any external covers be removed for servicing or maintenance except by suitably qualified personnel. Fig. 15
- To dismantle the control panel, unscrew the 4 internal screws (B) that secure the control panel to the oven front ( fig 16 ).
GREASING THE TAPS If a tap becomes hard to turn, grease it using specific grease designed to withstand high temperatures. Proceed as follows: switch the appliance off, shut the gas tap, open the cooktop and dismantle the control panel as described in the previous paragraph. Unscrew the two fixing screws from the burner body (see diagram) and remove the cone.
ALWAYS Always make sure you understand the controls before using the cooker. Always check that all controls on the cooker are turned off after use. Always stand back when opening an oven door to allow heat to disperse. Always use dry, good quality oven gloves when removing items from the oven. Always take care when removing items from the oven, as they may be dangerously hot. Always keep the oven doors closed when the cooker is not in use. Always place pans centrally over the burners and position them so that the handles cannot accidentally be caught or knocked or become heated by other burners. Always keep the cooker clean, as a build up of grease or fat from cooking can cause a fire. Always allow the cooker to cool before cleaning. Always follow the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to prevent proliferation of bacteria. Always keep ventilation grilles free from obstructions. Always turn off the electricity before cleaning or replacing an oven lamp. NEVER Never allow children near the cooker when in use as all surfaces will become hot during and after cooking. Never allow anyone to sit or stand on any part of the cooker. Never heat up unopened food containers as pressure can build up causing the container to burst. Never store chemicals, food stuffs, pressurised containers in or on the cooker, or in cabinets immediately above or next to the cooker. Never fill a deep fat frying pan more than1/3 full of fat or oil and never use a lid with this type of pan. NEVER LEAVE PANS UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING. Never place flammable or plastic items on or near the hob burners. Never use proprietary spillage collectors on the hob burners. Never use the cooker for the purpose of heating. Never dry clothes or place other items over or near to the hob burners or oven doors. Never wear garments with long wide sleeves whilst cooking. Never place flammable materials in the oven or the compartment below the oven. Never allow fat or oil to build up in the oven trays, grill pan or oven base. Never place cooking utensils or plates on the oven base. Never grill food containing fat without using the grill rack. Never cover the grill rack with aluminium foil. Never place hot enamel parts in water, leave them to cool first. Never allow vinegar, coffee, milk, saltwater, lemon or tomato juice to remain in contact with enamel parts (inside the oven and oven trays). Never use abrasive cleaners or powders since these could scratch the surface of the stainless steel and the enamel.
Clean the cone and its slot using a cloth soaked with thinner. Lightly grease the cone with the proper grease, fit it back in its slot, and turn it several times. Remove the cone again, remove the excess grease, making sure the gas apertures are not obstructed by residual grease. Assemble everything carefully in reverse order, then check the connection for leaks using soapy water. TAP REPLACEMENT Proceed as follows: switch the appliance off, shut the mains tap, open the cooktop and dismantle also the control panel as described in the previous paragraph. Unscrew screw nut D of the gas pipe supplying the burner. Unscrew screw V that secures the tap to the bridle and remove it (see diagram). Note: Whenever a tap is replaced, make sure you also replace the gasket and check the connection for leaks using soapy water (see diagram).
