Daily use
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing fresh food
and storing frozen and deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the Action Freeze function at
least 24 hours before placing the food to be frozen in the
freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the bottom compartment.
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen in 24
hours is specified on the rating plate, a label located on
the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do
not add other food to be frozen.
Storage of frozen food
Important! Do not use metallic instruments to remove the
trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
The freezer contains at least one cold accumulator which
increases storage time in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that
the shelves can be positioned as desired.
When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before
putting the products in the compartment let the appliance
run at least 2 hours on the higher settings.
Important! In the event of accidental defrosting, for
example due to a power failure, if the power has been off
for longer than the value shown in the technical
characteristics chart under "rising time", the defrosted
food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately
and then re-frozen (after cooling).
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food
packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be
thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at room temperature, depending on the time available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.
Ice-cube production
Gradually pull the shelf in
the direction of the arrows
until it comes free, then
reposition as required.
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for the
production of ice-cubes. Fill these trays with water, then
put them in the freezer compartment.
Helpful hints and tips
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the Temperature
Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is
fully loaded, the compressor may run continuously,
causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens,
www.zanussi.com
set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings
to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the
refrigerator
5
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour
• position food so that air can circulate freely around it
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and place on the
glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the
most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be covered
and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned
and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene
bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must
not be kept in the refrigerator.
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here
are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in
24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to
be frozen should be added during this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned,
foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly
and completely frozen and to make it possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and
make sure that the packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which
is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt
reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from
the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the skin to
be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in date on each individual pack to enable you to keep tab of the storage
time.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you
should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were
adequately stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
foodstore to the freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be
refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food
manufacturer.
Care and cleaning
Caution! Unplug the appliance before carrying out
any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore
only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water
and some neutral soap.
6
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure
they are clean and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed
cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as
this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at
the back of the appliance with a brush. This operation will
www.zanussi.com
improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity consumption.
Important! Take care of not to damage the cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer
casing of this appliance is only cleaned with warm water
with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of
the refrigerator compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water
drains out through a trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, over the motor compressor, where
it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost water drain
hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment channel
to prevent the water overflowing and dripping onto the
food inside. Use the special cleaner provided, which you
will find already inserted into the drain hole.
Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model, on the other hand,
is a "no frost" type. This means that there is no buildup of
frost when it is in operation, neither on the internal walls
nor on the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation
of cold air inside the compartment, driven by an automatically controlled fan.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the
following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it
once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in
case of a power failure.
