ISO Nevco dehydrator manual

Can anyone tell me where I can get a Nevco food dehydrator manual. I need to find out how to adjust the top and bottom air vents.

Never heard of a Nevco. Could it be Nesco?

If it is Nesco, click here to download their manuals.

No, it's a NEVCO. I'm looking at the box right now. About the only difference between it and a Ronco is the adjustable air vents.

Andy M, thank's for the info. I went to the Nesco site to see if the manual would be comparable but for some reason I couldn't pull up the manual. I'll try it again later. I have been having trouble with my server and it looks like I will have to uninstall it and rerun the disk.

Humm ... I can't even find who made, or imported, the Nevco Dehydrator - much less anything other than you can buy them on eBay - and BigLots (who sells mostly close-out items and overstocks) sold them for $15 a few years ago.

The Ronco instructions suggest that some models may have had adjustible vents - their instructions state that they should be left fully open.

You might try contacting one of the folks selling them on eBay to see if they will look in the manuals and tell you what it says about the vents - or maybe sell you a photo-copy of the manual.

Michael, All I can find out about the dehydrator is that it is made in China. I bought it at Big lots a few years back for $9.95 and used it several times (mostly to make venison jerky) and it worked real good but I didn't go hunting for a couple of years so I put it up for that time and when I broke it out to use it this last time I found that I must have put the manual some place else.
The vents have five settings and all are used at different times.
I guess I'll try the ebay bit as you suggested but maybe the manual will turn up some time. Thanks for the suggestions.
