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 condenser and ducting should be cleaned 3 or 4 times a year or more frequently if the dryer is in constant use. See âCLEANING THE CONDENSERâ opposite. NOTE: The condenser will discolour through use.
CLEANING THE CONDENSER
CAUTION: For maximum efficiency, the plates are made from very thin aluminium and are easily damaged. Do not try to poke anything between the plates or use a hard object or tool for cleaning. At all times, handle the condenser carefully and avoid crushing the plates.
REMOVING THE CONDENSER
Remove the condenser (see opposite). Flush the fluff from between the plates under running water and carefully shake off excess water.
Slide the condenser grille catch to the left. Firmly pull the condenser out.
RE-INSTALLING THE CONDENSER
Carefully push the condenser back into the machine, until it is pushed fully home and a âclickâ is heard. Ensure all lint and fluff is removed from around the grille seal before closing or water may leak. IMPORTANT: The dryer may leak if the condenser is not correctly re-installed.
Whilst the condenser is removed, clean as much fluff as possible from inside the ducting by reaching a hand into the machine. In particular, keep the passage from the fan clear (on the right hand side of the condenser duct). After cleaning, re-install the condenser (see opposite).
