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 is immaculate in it's accuracy. Everything is written very clearly and easy to understand. Written by a professional who wants to convey a clear and easy to understand message!!

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (pump is blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), 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; â¢ place a bowl on the floor; â¢ put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water come out. Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come out slowly. At the end screw the filter again.
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the drain hose and the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor. â¢ Select the âemptyâ programme J and run it until the machine stops. â¢ Turn the programme selector to CANCEL (IPTAL). â¢ Press the ON/OFF (AÃMA KAPAMA) button. â¢ Remove the plug from the power socket. â¢ Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its place. By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the parts involved. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C.
