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.

The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the drain hose is formed using the plastic ÂU-PieceÂ supplied. The standpipe should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and standpipe. When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of the curve in the hose end is no more than 90 cm (35.4ÂÂ) and no less than 60 cm (23.6ÂÂ) above floor level.
The upright standpipe should have a minimum, length of 30 cm (12ÂÂ) from the bottom of the elbow to the top of the pipe (see diagram). Make sure that it is designed in such a way that the end of the drain hose cannot be covered with water. Longer drain hoses are available in lengths of 2.7 and 4 metres from your AEG Service Force Centre. If you intend the drain hose from the washing machine to empty into a sink, make sure that the sink is empty and the plug hose is not blocked. Use the plastic ÂU-PieceÂ supplied.
