Very clear scan, I recommend it. Definitely a must have for any 3362 owner.
Alpine could have written a slightly more complete manual, though. It's already pretty huge, but the unit has so many functions, I feel some more explanation would have been better.
Yamaha's manual of their comparable YDSP-1 is a little better in my opinion.
This is a great manual. It was easy to read and very accurate. The size of the manual is small so email is no problem. I highly recommend it. The manual is very hard to find other than this website.

Maint enance & Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply.
In order to facilitate the removal of the ice layer, the evaporator is assisted by electric heating during the defrosting procedure. The ventilator is in OFF position. The defrost water will drip in the tray placed at the compressor and will evaporate. In the course of the defrosting procedure (approx. 30 minutes) the evaporator becomes warm but it has no influence on the internal temperature. The foods should be kept well-packed in order to avoid any moisture loss as a result of air circulation. Do not obstruct the vent holes because otherwise the operability of the product may be compromised. For such purpose it is recommended to put all foods in the baskets in the freezer compartment.
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly. NEVER use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as these will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grille) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause excessive electricity consumption.
If you do not use the product for longer periods, make sure to perform the following: Set the thermostat to position << >>. Disconnect the product from the mains. Remove all foods from the product. Perform defrosting and cleaning operations as described above. Leave the doors ajar to avoid the build-up of unpleasant odors.
This product is designed to avoid the formation of ice in the freezer. Accordingly, there is no need for manual defrosting. The product will automatically perform any defrosting once it becomes necessary.
