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.

The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0Â°C, certain precautions should be taken. q Turn off the water tap. q Unscrew the inlet hose. q Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out. q Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on again. q When you intend to start the machine up again, make sure that the room temperature is above 0Â°C.
â¢ Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat.
Every time you drain the water through the emergency emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer and then run the drain programme. This will activate the ECO valve avoiding that part of the detergent remains unused at next washing.
â¢ Screw the pump cover fully in. â¢ Close the pump door.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ open the pump door; â¢ place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose. Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out; â¢ clean the pump if necessary as previously described; â¢ replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after having plugged it; â¢ screw the pump cover again and close the door. 19
When the appliance is in use and depending on the programme selected there can be hot water in the pump. Never remove the pump cover during a wash cycle, always wait until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty. When replacing the cover, ensure it is securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being able to remove it.
Cleaning 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.
