I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is even more important than ever. The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as possible. s Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange juice rose to 22Â°C in an hour between the supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to get down to 7Â°C in the refrigerator. s Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible. s Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item. s Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave food in a cool place in order that it can then be placed in the refrigerator as soon as possible). s Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be in separate containers. Take care not to let the meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly. s Do not store food uncovered.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and clean (Refer to â€śMaintenance and cleaningâ€ť). Never allow spillages to dry and harden. Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped eggs. Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to ensure that it is clean and free from debris. Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry them with a clean towel before handling food. Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross contamination by not using the same work surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly in between.
While in operation the -star compartment becomes progressively covered with frost. This frost, which acts as an insulator and thus prevents the cold from reaching the food should be removed whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 1/4". To carry out complete defrosting proceed as follows: 1. Push the conveyor completely in. 2. Place a tray on the upper shelf of the refrigerator under the drain hole of the conveyor. 3. Remove any food from inside the -star compartment, wrap it in several sheets of newspaper and store in a cool dry place. 4. Push the button at the centre of the thermostat knob. To accelerate defrosting, place a bowl of hot water inside the compartment (with a piece of cardboard underneath the bowl as protection). 5. When defrosting is completed, dry thoroughly and remove the water collected in the tray. The refrigerator starts operating automatically following defrosting. 7 After letting the appliance run for at least half an hour, replace the previously removed food into the star compartment. When defrosting it is not necessary to remove the foods from the inner door and the refrigerator compartment. Important A temperature rise of the frozen food packs during defrosting may shorten their storage life. Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost from the evaporator as you could damage it beyond repair.
