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.

How to use your Fridge-Freezer
This freezer, marked , is suitable for freezing food and permits long term storage of frozen food. Once re-established: A) If the freezer is fully loaded and the power failure is less than the time indicated on the Â«Rating PlateÂ» no damage has been done to the food. B) If the freezer is not fully loaded the temperature will rise more quickly. If thawing has not started proceed as in point A. C) If the temperature has risen sufficiently the temperature alarm will sound and the temperature indicator will blink. You should: â¢ Check that the doors are shut. If they are not, you will hear also the door alarm. â¢ Check that you havenât overloaded the fridge/freezer with a large amount of new food. â¢ Check that there hasnât been a long power cut. â¢ Check that the fridge/freezer appears to be working properly and isnât broken. You should switch the alarm off by pushing the appropriate button. If it continues to come back on it is likely that there is a problem with the product. Advice then to the Technical Oficial Service. If thawing has started, consume the food immediately, or cook it and then freeze it again.
Freezing of food
Food to be frozen should be left for at least 24 hours. The procedure for this is as follows: 1... If the freezer has been disconnected and is empty, plug it an and leave for 3 hours before putting any food in. By pressing the fast freezer button 24 hours before freezing you will help cool down the freezer quicker. If the temperature alarm goes on see the earlier section on the temperature alarm. 2... It is possible that the temperature alarm will sound if a lot of new food is put in with existing food. This is due to a slight rise in temperature. The alarm will switch itself off automatically.
Conserving frozen food
To store Food properly the inside temperature should never rise above - 18Â°C. An ajustable temperature control regulates this temperature. Make sure the thermostat is on a medium setting. However, it may sometimes be necessary (due to poor ventilation, high room temperatures, frequent opening of doorsâ¦) to regulate the setting of the thermostat. In the case of an accidental stoppage of the appliance or a power cut proceed as follows: â¢ Keep the doors closed at all times. â¢ Try to find out how long the loss of power will last for.
