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!!

Clean carefully under a fast running tap.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0Â°C, certain precautions should be taken. n Turn off the water taps. n Unscrew the inlet hoses. n Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and position the end of this hose and that of the inlet hoses in a bowl. Run the draining programme . n Disconnect the appliance. n Screw the inlet hoses and reposition the drain hose.
When the appliance is in use and depending on the programme selected there can be hot water in the filter. Never remove the filter during a wash cycle, always wait until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty. When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being able to remove it.
When you intend to start the machine up again, make sure that the room temperature is above 0Â°C.
The water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime deposit, the water inlet filters may become clogged. It is therefore a good idea to clean them from time to time. Turn off the water taps. Unscrew the water inlet hoses. Remove and clean the filters using a hard bristle brush. Replace the filters and tighten up the inlet hoses.
