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
Make sure that the machine is unplugged and the water tap turned off before undertaking any kind of maintenance.
The outside or the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a neutral non-abrasive household detergent. Wipe with clean water and dry after cleaning. Important : do not use methylated spirit, diluents or similar products. It is advisable, from time to time, to carry out a complete cycle without a washing load, adding a decalcifying product.
The detergent dispenser
The detergent dispenser is very easy to remove. Exert a pressure on the brooches located on each side of the detergent dispenser and pull it up (fig. 1 and 2). Clean the detergent dispenser under running water with a brush or a piece of rag (fig. 3). Check that the siphons located at the back of the detergent dispenser are not obstructed (fig. 4). Replace the detergent dispenser in the notches until the hanging (fig. 5).
The drain filter
The machine has got a mecanic filter located on the front part to collect lint and small objects (toothpins, coins, pins, etc.) inadvertently left in the clothes. It is essential that the filter is cleaned regularly. Frequency of cleaning depends on the type of articles washed (cleaning should be more frequent if the articles have no hem and tend to fray). - Open the flapdoor (fig. 6). - To drain the residual water : Place below a container not very high up with straight edges. To complete the draining, turn the cap of the drain filter until its vertical position and the residual water will be released (fig. 7). - To clean the filter : Turn the filter anticlockwise and get it away (fig. 8). Clean it with current water. Replace the filter and screw down it clockwise. Then, close the flapdoor.
