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.

PREPARING TO USE YOUR COOKER
Wipe over the grill compartment and oven base with a soft cloth and hot soapy water and wash the grill and oven furniture before use. The grill and ovens should be heated without food to burn off any residue from the grill and oven surfaces.To do this run the oven at Gas Mark 7 for approximately 10 - 15 minutes. The procedure should be repeated with the grill for approximately 5 - 10 minutes. During this period an unpleasant odour may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for ventilation.
CONDENSATION AND STEAM
When food is heated it produces steam in the same way as a boiling kettle does. The ovens are vented to allow some of this steam to escape. However, always stand back from the cooker when opening the oven doors to allow any build up of steam or heat to release. If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface on the outside of the cooker, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused by a fault on the cooker. To prevent discolouration occurring, regularly wipe away condensation and any soilage from the cooker surfaces.
Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be placed over the oven burner. This will damage the oven as well as the ovenware. Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x 30cm (12" x 12") as they will restrict the circulation of heat and may affect performance. Advice on the effect of different materials and finishes of bakeware is given in 'Hints and Tips' in the appropriate oven section. If using a baking tray larger than 30cm x 25cm (12" x 9") in the top oven you may need to turn it round during cooking.
When roasting we recommend that you use the trivet in the meat tin. Fat and meat juices will drain into the meat tin below and can be used to make gravy. The trivet also prevents splashes of fat from soiling the oven interior. Note. The meat tin should not be placed on a heated hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack.
