REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
SETTING
Use and features of Crisp’N Fresh filter
The temperature in this compartment can be freely
adjusted between +8°C (highest setting) and +2°C
(lowest setting).
The temperature setting is adjusted by pressing
button (C) and keeping it pressed in for more than 4
seconds; a progressively lower figure is shown by
indicator (B) every 2 seconds (between 8 and 2). If
the button is held in after the figure 2 has appeared,
the indicator will return to 8 and then continue to
cycle through progressively lower figures.
Simply release the button once the required
temperature setting has been reached.
The indicator will continue to flash for a few seconds
and will then go back to showing the actual
temperature inside the compartment.
A flashing display of the temperature setting
selected can be obtained at any time by pressing
button (C). This may be different from the actual
temperature indicated – either because a different
temperature setting has only recently been
selected, or because the door has been opened and/
or warm food has been placed in the compartment;
however the temperature displayed during normal
operation may vary by about 1°C above or below
the set temperature. As soon as the button is
released, the actual temperature inside the
refrigerator will again be shown on indicator (B).
“Crisp’N Fresh” is the glass shelf on top of the salad
crispers which is fitted with special removable
green filters.
These filters allow cool air from the fridge to
circulate through the drawers but help prevent
moisture loss. By retaining moisture in foods such
as fresh fruit, vegetables and salad they are kept
fresher for longer.
Important
We recommend that loose food (cheese, cold meats,
cooked food etc.) be stored in plastic bags so as to
preserve their natural freshness and aroma.
Fig. 5
3P 22
Cleaning the filter
The filter is held by two small support frames which
press into position and are therefore easily removed
for cleaning. To do this, turn the glass shelf upside
down and release the frames as shown in the
illustration.
Fig. 6
D 003
The filters and the glass cover can be washed gently
in warm soapy water, they should not be put in the
dishwasher.
Replacement filters may be obtained from your
local Zanussi Service Centre.

SUPERCHILL COMPARTMENT
The temperature inside this compartment is
automatically maintained at a constant level
(between –1°C and +2°C), quite independently of
the temperature in the other two compartments.
No adjustment is necessary.
The fold-down door acts as a useful resting surface
for the drawers.
Storing pre-packed chilled foods in this
compartment will help keep them fresh and in peak
condition up to the «best before» date.
Warning
Do not leave the door open longer than necessary
and do not use it for purposes other than those for
which it is designed.

FREEZER COMPARTMENT
SETTING
The temperature in this compartment can be freely
adjusted between –15°C and –24°C.
The setting is adjusted in the same way as for the
refrigerator compartment, but using button (E).
The temperature setting is then shown by indicator
(D).
The indicator starts at –15°C and progressively
goes down to –24°C, i.e. the temperature setting
gets colder and colder.
Here too, if the button is held in, the indicator will
start cycling again from –15°C.
Semi-automatic fast freezing
To freeze fresh food when the freezer is already in
use with food inside it, proceed as follows:
Press button (F) for at least 5 seconds; freezer
temperature indicator (D) will show the letters SU
to indicate that this function is active.
Place the food to be frozen in one of the drawers,
preferably an empty drawer to avoid raising the
temperature of already frozen food.
For items weighing up to 3 kg, press button (F) for
at least 5 seconds and at the same time place food in
the top drawer.
For items weighing between 3 and 9 kg, press button
(F) for at least 5 seconds 3 hours before placing food
in the bottom drawer.
For items weighing between 9 and 11 kg, press
button (F) for at least 5 seconds 5 hours before
placing food in the top and bottom drawers.
The fast freeze function stays active for 27 hours
and is then automatically switched off, returning
the freezer to its previous setting.
Fast freeze can be switched off at any time by
pressing button (F) for a further 5 seconds.
To freeze fresh food immediately after installing
and switching on the appliance, or after having
cleaned it, proceed as follows:
1. Press button (F) for at least 5 seconds to activate
the fast freeze function.
2. Allow the appliance to run empty for at least 6
hours.
3. Place food to be frozen in the appropriate
compartment.
Storing ready-frozen food
It is also advisable to check that external packaging
is intact: swollen packs or traces of re-frozen water
droplets on the pack are a sure sign that the product
has not always been kept at a suitably low
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality.
Never exceed the storage times indicated on packs.
Do not open the freezer door too often and do not
leave open longer than necessary for loading or
removing food.
Never re-freeze partially thawed food. Food which
has accidentally thawed must be checked for smell,
taste and colour and, if these seem normal, must be
consumed within 24 hours or thoroughly cooked
before re-freezing.
A special card is located in the holder on the inner
door of the freezer compartment. At the top, there
are pictures of animals and various types of food,
followed by a figure. These figures indicate the
maximum storage time, from the date on which the
food was frozen.
Details of food being stored, can also be written in
pencil on the lower part of the card.
Thawing Food
Food can be thawed in various ways, depending on
the type of food, pack size and required use:
At room temperature. In the refrigerator
compartment of the appliance. In a convection (fan)
oven. In a microwawe oven. In a steam cooker.
Important
In the event of a power failure and the temperature
within your freezer rising above –6°C, do not refreeze the food without checking its condition. The
following guidelines should assist you.
Ice-cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & cake: Can be re-frozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked dishes: i.e. casseroles: Should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large pieces of meat: Can be re-frozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small joints: Should be cooked and can then be refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and re-frozen as a
cooked dish.
Packs of ready-frozen food may be placed in any of
the drawers according to the space available. You
are strongly advised to place ready-frozen food in
the freezer compartment as quickly as possible
after purchase, so as to limit any rise in
temperature.

Making ice cubes
Defrosting the appliance
A plentiful supply of ice can be made in the two
trays located above the ice servery. Fill the trays 3/
4 full to allow the ice to expand.
Defrosting of the freezer. Superchill and
refrigerator is automatic.
To dispense the ice, fully turn the dial as shown in
Fig. 11.
The water is discharged, via pipes, into a tray
located at the back of the appliance, above the
compressor, where it evaporates.
The cubes will fall easily from the trays, into the
servery below.
Fig. 12
Never consume ice-cubes which have just come out
of the freezer. Their extremely low temperature can
cause frost burns.
Fig. 11

Overtemperature alarm and memory device
In the event of an abnormal temperature rise inside
the freezer compartment (e.g. power cut) warning
light (H) will start to flash.
The alarm will continue to flash even after the
temperature has returned to normal; it is therefore
quite possible to find that the freezer temperature
indicator may actually be showing the normal
storage temperature values: flashing of warning
light (H) indicates that there has been a problem
some time previously.
To stop it flashing press button (G).
As soon as this is done, the alarm function is reset
and the hottest temperature reached within the
compartment, which has been memorised by the
device, flashes for 10 seconds on indicator (D).
After 10 seconds, indicator (D) resumes its normal
thermometer function.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been
removed from many pre-prepared foods. This together
with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week
shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is
even more important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that the
food in your home is in as perfect condition as possible.
“ Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange
juice rose to 22°C in an hour between the
supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to
get down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
“ Always wash your hands with soapy water and
dry them with a clean towel before handling food.
“ Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them
thoroughly in between.
“ Use kitchen roll wherever possible for cleaning
up food. If you use a dishcloth, be sure to boil it
frequently.
“ Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible. Remember that warm air is flowing in
as you are deciding what to have for tea!
“ Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
“ Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator or freezer until
cool. (Leave food in a place as cool as possible in
order that it can then be placed in the
refrigerator or freezer as soon as possible).
“ Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
“ Do not store food uncovered.
“ The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
“ Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean the interior with a solution of bicarbonate of
soda in warm water (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
“ Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
“ Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure that
food is consumed at its best.
“ It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
“ Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
“ Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from bits and
pieces.

compartments and refrigerant circulating
through the pipes are, however, quite normal.
If the internal light fails to come on...
check that
The bulb is properly fitted and replace it, if it has
blown (see relevant section in instructions).
If, after the above checks, there is still a fault, call
your nearest Zanussi Service Centre.
When calling, please make sure you give the
appliance Model Number, Product Number and
Serial Number. These can be found on the
guarantee certificate or on the rating plate inside
