The manual was complete and of great quality. Originally a tri-lingual file, I first received only one language. After a note to owners-manuals.com, I quickly received the remaining languages... Great service, definitely worth it.
Thank you for providing this manual and at low cost.
The Philips scope is of excellent quality, longevity and build and had a couple of faults
when it was passed to me. Having the CCT diagrams is a blessing.
I have fixed the problems and also modded the scope to my requirements.
I have built a 24v Li-Ion pack for portable use from old but good laptop batts.
it is working beautifully and I am well pleased. Keep up the good work Guys.
manual was very helpful in learning how to propery use my washer. I could not find this manual anywhere else.
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.
The kettle switches off ('O' position) automatically when the water has reached boiling point. You can interrupt the boiling process by setting the on/off switch to 'O'.

Read these instructions for use carefully before using the appliance and save them for future reference. â覧 â覧 â覧 â覧 â覧 â覧 Check if the voltage indicated on the base of the kettle corresponds to the local mains voltage before you connect the appliance. Only use the kettle in combination with its original base. Always place the base and the kettle on a dry, flat and stable surface. Keep the cord, the base and the appliance away from hot surfaces. Do not use the appliance if the mains cord, the plug, the base or the appliance itself is damaged. If the mains cord is damaged, it must always be replaced by Philips, a service centre authorised by Philips or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. Do not immerse the appliance or the base in water or any other liquid. The kettle is only meant for boiling water. Do not use it to heat up soup or other liquids or jarred, bottled or tinned food. Boiling water can cause serious burns. Be careful when the kettle contains hot water. Never fill the kettle beyond the maximum level indication. If the kettle has been overfilled, boiling water may be ejected from the spout and cause scalding. Do not open the lid while the water is boiling. Be careful when you open the lid immediately after the water has boiled: the steam coming out of the kettle is very hot. Avoid touching the body of the kettle, as it gets very hot during use.Always lift the kettle by its handle. Keep the appliance and its cord out of the reach of children. Do not let the mains cord hang over the edge of the table or worktop. Excess cord can be stored in or around the base of the appliance. Never fill the kettle below the minimum level to prevent the kettle from boiling dry. Some condensation may appear on the base of the kettle.This is perfectly normal and does not mean that the kettle has any defects. Depending on the hardness of the water in your area, small spots may appear on the heating element of your kettle when you use it.This phenomenon is the result of scale build-up on the heating element and on the inside of the kettle over time.The harder the water, the faster scale will build up. Scale can occur in different colours.Although scale is harmless, too much scale can influence the performance of your kettle. Descale your kettle regularly by following the instructions given in the chapter 'Descaling'. Boil-dry protection This kettle is equipped with boil-dry protection.This device will automatically switch the kettle off if it is accidentally switched on when there is no water or not enough water in it.The on/off switch will stay in 'on' position and the pilot light, if available, will stay on. Set the on/off switch to 'O' and let the kettle cool down for 10 minutes.The kettle is ready for use again.
