GETTING STARTED

Power Source

• This system is designed to operate on AC100V~240V 60/50Hz house current only.

• Connecting this system to any other power source may cause damage to the system and such

damage is not covered by your warranty.

• Main plug is used as the disconnect device, the disconnect device shall remain readily operable.

Note: The system has an AC plug and will only fit into matching AC outlets. This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock. If the plug will not fit in your AC outlets, you should have the outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do not use an adapter to make the plug fit into your outlet. This defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.

Protect your Furniture

This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber

'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

Installing the Remote Control Battery

The remote control battery has been previously installed and ready for operation for the first time use. When the remote control stops functioning, replace the battery with a new one. To do so, locate the battery compartment and follow the steps below:

1. Slide out the battery holder from the remote control case.

2. Insert a “CR2025” 3V lithium battery making certain to follow the correct polarity. Observe the

corresponding symbols (+/-).

3. Secure battery and push the battery holder back into the remote control until it is fully inserted.

WEATHER BAND OPERATION

No Reception Warning

If no alerts are received for 10 days, the LCD will display “NO RECEPTION” every 30 seconds. If this happens, check your county code and channel setting for setting error. If you receive a clear signal from the NWS, try using the “ALL counties” setting to receive all alerts for all counties.

Notes on reception :

The National Weather Service operates a system of weather and hazard alert broadcasts covering a large area of the United States. Currently, only a few areas are not covered. Typical broadcasts are within reception distance of 25-50 miles of the weather station. iMM183 weather receiver can receive broadcasts from up to 50 miles from the weather station, depending on your location and conditions of weather, terrain, etc. If you find reception is not good in your area, try different locations in your home or office to find a spot of improved reception.

Placement near a window usually improves reception.

If a weather broadcast cannot be heard on any of the 7 channels, contact your local NWS office and verify the closest station is on air. Also verify the channel frequencies the station is broadcasting.

If your NWS is transmitting and you are not receiving broadcasts, you may need an external antenna to improve the reception.

Please note : Metal structures are more difficult to receive reception in, because metal interferes with the signal. If you live in a metal structure, you may need an external antenna.

Maintenance

• Place the unit on a level surface away from sources of direct sunlight or excessive heat.

• Protect your furniture when placing your unit on a natural wood and lacquered finish. A cloth or

other protective material should be placed between it and the furniture.

• Clean your unit with a soft cloth moistened only with mild soap and water. Stronger cleaning

agents, such as Benzine, thinner or similar materials can damage the surface of the unit.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON HEARING

Your hearing is very important to you and to us, so please take care when operating this equipment. We strongly recommend you to follow the guideline below in order to prevent possible damage or loss of hearing.

If you continuously listen to the loud sounds, your hearing will adapt to continuous loud sounds and will give you the impression that the volume has been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEAR-

ING ADAPTS, set the volume at a low level and slowly increase the volume level until you can hear comfortably and clearly without distortion. Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible. Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud. Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO

NOT INCREASE THE VOLUME LEVEL FURTHER.
