Awesome quality manual. You really saved my bacon with this one. Was looking for some specific information with regards to my "new" vintage VCR that didn't come with the owners manual. This site is truely a goldmine of available manuals. The quality of the scans are top notch.
Thank-you so much for this awesome manual. If you're looking for this Sony SL-HF400 owners manual, this is the one you NEED to buy. Definitely worth the money.
The manual was made available promptly. I is a clean scan of the original. I had no problem downloading it. The scan was well centered and cleanly formatted. It is as good a product as can be had without being the original document.
Received downlink in less then 8 hours, Item was in good copy condition, and told me how to program the clock timer. The price was very resonable, and the process was very automated and was GREAT to work with.
I was very pleased with the manual I got for my amateur (ham) radio. Without it I could not figure out how to input and/or change the P/L setting on my radio. It drove me nuts as the radio was essentially useless. That all changed when my manual came. Then it took only minutes and I was done. Now my radio works fine. This is an exceptionally good resource as it's a very easy and user friendly download. Thank you very much! Dziękujemy za!

WHEN THE OVEN IS FIRST INSTALLED
Once the oven has been installed, it is important to remove the protective materials which were put on in the factory. Turn knob B on the timer until the manual function appears in the dial. Switch the oven control knob to fan ducted cooking and then set the thermostat control knob to MAX and leave it to run, empty, for 30 minutes to remove any unpleasant new smells. During this period, an unpleasant odour may be emitted, it is therefore, advisable to open a window for ventilation. REMEMBER: The timer must be set to MANUAL before the oven can be operated. This must be done whenever the oven is switched off at the wall or when there is a power failure. If the oven indicator neons do not glow when the controls are switched on, it is most likely that the timer is set for automatic cooking.
When roasting do 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. N.B. The meat tin should not be placed on a heated hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack.
The cooling fan
During cooking the cooling fan will cycle ON and OFF. This is quite normal. It may run on after the oven or grill is switched off to keep the controls cool. Always allow the cooling fan to cool the oven down completely before switching off the main supply to carry out any cleaning or maintenance work. Alternatively open the oven door for a short period of time. NOTE The action of the cooling fan will depend on how long the oven or grill has been used and at what temperature. It may not switch in at all at lower temperature settings nor run on where the grill or oven has only been used for a short time.
The model number of your oven can be found on the rating plate on the lower front frame of the cooker upon opening the door. The oven must be protected by a suitably rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the oven is given on the rating plate.
Control panel indicator neon
This light indicates whether the oven or grill is switched ON. In the case of the oven, the neon also indicates when the set temperature has been reached. It will cycle on, and off during use to show that the temperature is being maintained. If the neon do not operate as the instructions indicate the controls have been incorrectly set. Return all controls to zero and reset following the instructions for the required setting. When the oven is set for automatic cooking the neon should remain unlit during OFF periods.
About condensation and steam
When food is heated it produces steam in the same way as a boiling kettle. The oven is vented to allow some of this steam to escape. However, always stand back from the cooker when opening the oven door 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 oven, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused by a fault on the oven. To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
Baking trays, oven dishes, etc. should not be placed directly against the grid covering the fan at the back of the oven, or placed on the oven base. Do not use baking trays larger than 30 cm x 35 cm (12 in x 14 in) 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.
