Fisher & Paykel is a New Zealand manufacturer that exports to the world, (www.fisherandpaykel.co.nz), for some reason the New Zealand designers decided to use the US nat anthem in their machines, I think the tune may differ, depending on the country the appliance is purchased in. Click on the New Zealand site and you can download all the engineers' reports/installation etc
