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.
Great site, I always find all the manuals I need and i can't find anywhere else. PDF for the Sony PCM 3348 is complete and scan is good quality. Thank you!

When the frost has reached a thickness of up to 4mm it can be removed using the ice scraper provided with the appliance. During this operation it is not necessary to disconnect the appliance from the mains and remove the food. Never use metal tools for this operation. For complete defrosting (once or twice a year) proceed as follows: turn the thermostat dial to the Â«OFFÂ» position (O) or disconnect the appliance from the mains. Remove any food from inside the freezer and fridge, wrap it in several sheets of newspaper and store in a cool,dry place. Leave the door open and insert the ice scraper under the channel in the centre of the lower part of the appliance; place a low-sided container beneath the scraper to collect the water (see fig.). Clean and dry thoroughly. Replace the scraper in one of the drawers . Reconnect the appliance to the mains or reset the thermostat to a functioning position. After letting the appliance run for at least half an hour, replace the previously removed food into the compartment.
When defrosting the freezer, the fridge is also controlled by the thermostat and will not be operational during this period. A temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.
In the event of a power failure causing the temperature within your freezer to rise, do not refreeze the food without checking its condition. The following guidelines should assist you. Ice-cream: once thawed should be discarded. Fruits & Vegetables: if soft should be cooked and used up. Breads & Cakes: can be re-frozen without danger. Shellfish: should be refrigerated and used up quickly. Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be refrigerated and used up. Large Pieces of Meat: can be re-frozen providing there are still ice crystals remaining within them. Small Joints: should be cooked and can then be refrozen as cooked dishes. Chicken: should also be cooked and re-frozen as a cooked dish.
