Oh, and a bit more detail: the Amcor technical people were quite
matter-of-fact in saying that the product-boxed, 'stop-and-read-this-
first' not-on-Web instruction page was just flatly wrong, and wrong in
a way likely to be imperceptible to step-by-step readers assembling
the unit for the first time:
Step '2' had 8 substeps, and i had done them, and Amcor said flatly
that those 8 substeps had erroneously arranged the order of steps and
omitted steps, and i should reverse those 8 substeps, and then ignore
the page entirely, because such substeps 2-1 through 2-8 had failed to
include at the right times the attachment of the thin "spiral water
pipe with connector" inside the wide exhaust hose, which inclusion
would be accomplished, they said, at the right times in about 4
additional steps if one were to ignore such Stop! page and use only
the full, 14-page manual.
And indeed their express abandoning of their Stop! page did work.
