Thanks so much for the Owner's manual for my Sony PS - FL1. I had purchased the turntable off of eBay. It came in and looked great. Packed well and appeared to be great. I balanced and aligned the tone are and hooked it up. When trying to play a record the tone are would move to the right place and just before it would drop to play it moved back off the edge of the record before touching down. I searched the net for an answer to this issue. No luck. Then I purchased the owners manual and sure enough there was a place to adjust where the stylus touched down. That adjustment solved the problem and saved me a $35 feet to have the player checked out. The manual is well written and easy to understand. It is a must have for anyone with this front loading Sony turntable.
Some years back I pruchased a Sansui G-9000. I had it cleaned up and a problem with the left channel repaired. When I got it back I hooked it up to my tape decks, turn tables, TV and it played great. The only thing I was not really satisfied with was the performance of my Graphic Equalizer. I purchased this owner's manual had poured myself a cup of coffee. The manual is well organized and written in plain language. It also contained the solution to my dissatisfaction. By using the preamp connections coupled I was able to run everything through my graphic equalizer and now enjoy the full potential of my complete system.
An excellent service for the price, however, it would also have been handy if the troubleshooter pages were included. The manual is only sent in the language of your country, thus it looks as though there are some pages missing. Otherwise highly recommended.
Hr, klasse , good manual, verry fast on my e-mail, very usefull manual. rgds; ahm zeegers
Text excerpt from page 14 (click to view)
This is situated on the lower front frame of the appliance and can be seen upon opening the door. Alternatively the rating plate may also be found on the back or top of some models (where applicable). The appliance must be protected by a suitably rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the appliance is given on the rating plate. Do not remove the rating plate from the appliance as this may invalidate the guarantee.
THE COOLING FAN FOR THE CONTROLS
The cooling fan comes on immediately when the grill is switched on and after a short time when the oven is in use. During the initial period the cooling fan may turn ON and OFF, this is quite normal. Do not switch off the appliance at its power point before the cooling fan has cooled the appliance down.
CONTROL PANEL INDICATOR NEON GENERAL NOTES ON USING YOUR OVEN
We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 â o 15 minutes at 220 C to burn off any residue from their surfaces. The procedure should be repeated with the grill for approximately 5 â 10 minutes. During this period an odour may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for ventilation. The light indicates whether the grill or oven is switched ON. In the case of the oven, the neon also indicates when the set temperature has been reached. If the neon does not operate as the instructions indicate the controls have been incorrectly set. Return all controls to zero and re-set following the instructions for the required setting.
ABOUT CONDENSATION AND STEAM
When food is heated it produces steam in the same way as a boiling kettle does. The oven is vented to allow some of this steam to escape. However, always stand back from the appliance when opening the oven door 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 appliance, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused by a fault on the appliance. To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
HELPFUL HINTS WHEN BUYING AND PREPEARING FOOD
Care must be taken when handling foods in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth and cross contamination when preparing, reheating, cooking, cooling, defrosting and freezing foods:-
1. Avoid buying chilled or frozen products if you cannot store them straight away. The use of an insulated container when shopping is advisable.
Baking trays, oven dishes etc., should not be placed directly against the grid covering the fan at the back of the oven. Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x 35cm (12â x 14â) as they will restrict the circulation of heat and may affect performance.
2. When you arrive home, place perishable foods in the refrigerator or freezer immediately. Ensure they are well covered to prevent them drying out and to prevent any possible cross contamination with bacteria from raw to cooked foods.
3. In the kitchen keep work tops, chopping boards and utensils clean with hot soapy water between preparation stages. Ideally, keep one chopping board for raw meat and another for other foods. Keep your dish cloths and tea towels clean.
