ately, and consult an authorized service station.

The carton and shipping materials used to pro-

specially designed to cushion it from shock and
vibration.We suggest that you save the carton
and packing materials for use in shipping if you
move, or should the unit ever need repair.
To minimize the size of the carton in storage,
you may wish to flatten it.This is done by care-
fully slitting the tape seams on the bottom and
collapsing the carton down to a more two-
dimensional appearance. Other cardboard
inserts may be stored in the same manner.
