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.

1 Programme Chart
This will help you to select the correct time for drying.
4 Mains-On Light
This lights up when the machine starts operating and goes out at the end of the programme.
2 Low Temperature Button
Press this button to reduce the temperature when drying particularly delicate cotton or linen items. In this case you should select a longer drying time. On the programmes for synthetics the temperature is automatically reduced. Therefore it is not necessary to depress this button.
5 Drying Time Selector Dial
The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles, one of up to 150 minutes at a high temperature for cotton and linen, and one of up to 100 minutes at a low temperature for synthetic fabrics. To set the machine to the selected time, turn the dial clockwise until the time you want coincides exactly with the pointer. NEVER attempt to turn the dial in an anticlockwise direction. When selecting the drying time, you should remember that it includes a 10 minute cooling phase (position on the dial). This phase should not be shortened, stopped or avoided, as this could cause skin burns or damages to the laundry. Additional drying If at the end of the programme the laundry is still too damp, set the dial for a further period of drying (remembering to take into account the cooling period).
3 Cool Tumbling Button
By depressing this button the heat is cut off. This is particularly useful to freshen the laundry (e.g. to remove a persistent odour of moth-balls).
