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.

4. The water inlet hose filter
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the hose from the tap. Clean the filter with a stiff brush. Screw the hose back onto the tap.
6. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ disconnect the appliance; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ open the drainage area door; â¢ place a bowl to collect the water that will flow out; â¢ release the emergency emptying hose, place it in the bowl and remove its cap; â¢ when the water stops flowing out, put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose, replace the emergency emptying hose in its initial position and close the drainage area door. By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the affected parts.
5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), 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 drainage area door; â¢ place a bowl to collect the water; â¢ release the emergency emptying hose, place it in the bowl and remove its cap, when the bowl is full put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose; â¢ empty the bowl, repeat the procedure until you have completely emptied the washing machine; â¢ replace the emergency emptying hose in its initial position and close the drainage area door.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C.
