aerial. The aerial can be directed by turning the
whole set.
• When FM ST 6 lights up, you are receiving a
FM stereo transmitter.

Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved
moulded 13 Amp plug. To change a fuse in
this type of plug proceed as follows:
• Remove fuse cover and fuse.
• Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362
5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
• Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your
socket outlets, it should be cut off and an
appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a
fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution
board should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured
with the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
As these colours may not correspond with
the colour markings identifying the terminals
in your plug, proceed as follows:
• Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured blue or black.
• Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured brown or red.
• Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make
certain that the cord grip is clamped over the
sheath of the lead - not simply over the two
wires.
