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.

Cleaning the filter
The water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct functioning of the machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every washing programme. Place a container under the filter to catch any spillage. If the filter is blocked and the machine is unable to drain you will need to drain the water manually from the machine at this stage. To do this, unhook the drain hose from the standpipe or sink and hold the end of the hose over a bowl on the floor. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, hook the hose back up and empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out. Unscrew and remove the filter. Clean carefully under a fast running tap.
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.
The water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime deposit, the water inlet filter may become clogged. It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time to time. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet hose.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0Â°C, certain precautions should be taken. â Turn off the water tap.

Unscrew the inlet hose. Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and position the end of this hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl. Run the draining programme. Disconnect the appliance. Screw the inlet hose and reposition the drain hose. When you intend to start the machine up again, make sure that the room temperature is above 0Â°C.
