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!!

4. Water inlet filter
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the hose from the tap and remove the filter. Clean it with a stiff brush. Refit the filter and screw the hose back onto the tap.
5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is blocked, filter or outlet hose are clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine: n pull out the plug from the power socket; n close the water tap; n if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; n place a bowl on the floor; n put the outlet hose end into the bowl and let the water come out. Should it not be possible to have access to the outlet hose because, for example, the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the outlet filter after placing a bowl on the floor, to let the water come out slowly. At the end screw the filter again.
6. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: n Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. n Place the end of the outlet hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor. n Select programme Q and run it until the machine stops. n Remove the plug from the socket. n Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the outlet 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 affected parts. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C. 88
