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.
This Manual (as downloaded) is both informative and comprehensive and has proved to be extremely useful. thoroughly recommended.

â¢ Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it.
6. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ open the pump door; â¢ place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. Whe the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose. Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out; â¢ clean the pump if necessary as previously described; â¢ replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after having plugged it; â¢ screw the pump cover again and close the door.
â¢ Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat.
7. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Remove the plug from the socket. â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out. â¢ Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on again. By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the affected parts. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C.
â¢ Screw the pump cover fully in. â¢ Close the pump door.
5. Water inlet filter
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the hose from the tap. Clean the filter with a stiff brush. Screw the hose back onto the tap.
