Having purchased a 1994 Kenwood music system from a Charity shop in 2013 (it was a high end product in its day), I found myself not quite knowing where to plug in what, and how to do this, that and the next thing. I needed a Manual, and after failure with another online 'Manual provider' I found Owner Manuals dot com. Well, I wasn't sure, but it was only $5, and if things didn't work out, I wouldn't have lost much...
But things DID work out. After paying my childrens inheritance money, $4.99, I was sent a Manual for my Kenwood System very quickly. Alas, it was in German, and being Scottish, I could not read it or get my system in order from it...a rapid email to them brought the English Manual in short order, and my retro-system was and IS up and running in it's regulation settings.
I am very grateful to http://www.owner-manuals.com for their quick service and for even having such an obsolete Manual in the first place! If you need a Manual for ANYTHING, try here first. I wouldn't be surprised if I bought a 1928 Marconi radio, and got the user Manual for THAT here too!
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.

Maintenance and Care
Â The hood must always be disconnected from the electricity supply before beginning any maintenance work.
Cleaning the hood
Â Clean the outside of the hood using a damp cloth and a mild washing up liquid solution. Â Never use corrosive, abrasive or flammable cleaning products. Â Never insert pointed objects in the motorÂs protective grid. Â Never use caustic detergents or abrasive brushes or powders. Â Only ever clean the switch panel and filter grill using a damp cloth and mild washing up liquid solution. Â It is extremely important to clean the unit and change the filters at the recommended intervals. Failure to do so will cause grease deposits to build up that could constitute a fire hazard.
Metal grease filter
Â The purpose of the grease filters is to absorb grease particles which form during cooking and it must always be used, either in the external extraction or internal recirculation function. Attention: the metal grease filters must be removed and washed, either by hand or in the dishwasher, every four weeks.
Removing the metal grease filter
Â First, push the metal grease filter stop (f1) backwards, then extract the filter (f2), pulling downwards. Fig. 4.
Hand washing Soak grease filters for about one hour in hot water with a grease-loosening cleaner, then f2 rinse off thoroughly with hot water. Repeat the process if necessary. Refit the grease filters when they are dry. Fig. 4 Dishwasher Place grease filters in the dishwasher. Select most powerful washing programme and highest temperature, at least 65Â°C. Repeat the process. Refit the grease filters when they are dry. When washing the metal grease filter in the dishwasher a slight discolouration of the filter can occur, this does not have any impact on its performance. Â Clean the inner housing using a hand hot solution only(never use caustic detergents, abrasive powders or brushes). 9
