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!
Excellant!!! Very quick and easy....Best $4.99 I have spent in a very long time..
I highly recommend this.

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.
