Before using your microwave oven
Read through the instruction manual carefully. The following instructions have been
prepared so that you get the best from your
new Zanussi microwave oven. It is important
that this instruction book is retained with the
appliance for future reference. Should the
appliance be sold or transferred to another
owner, or if you move house and leave the
appliance, always ensure that the book is
supplied with the ap-pliance so that the new
owner can become acquainted with the functioning of the appliance and the relevant
warnings. Please ensure you have read the
whole instruction book before using the
appliance and that you follow the recommendations given.
Unpacking
N.B. When you unpack the oven, check
that the product is free from damage.
Damage or any missing parts must be
reported immediately to the retailer. The
oven, parts of the oven or the accessories
may be wrapped by a protection foil. If present, you must remove this foil before
using the oven. Do not leave packing
material where small children can play with
it. This can be hazardous.

Safety Instructions
• Do not operate the oven empty. If food or
water is not present to absorb the
microwave energy, the magnetron tube
can be damaged.
• Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do
not use this product near water.
• Do not attempt to dry clothing or newspapers in the microwave oven. These items
can ignite.
• In order to evacuate moisture, your appliance is fitted with a delayed ventilation
function. Depending on the applied cooking mode (solo / grill / combination), the
oven ventilation will continue to operate
after the cooking end. It switches off automatically after 3 minutes.
• Do not use the cavity for storage purposes.
Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.
• The built-in safety interlock switches prevent the microwave oven from operating
when the door is open.
• Do not tamper with them, nor attempt to
operate the oven with the door open, as
open door operation can result in exposure to microwave energy.
• Do not allow food spills or cleaner residue
to accu-mulate on door sealing surfaces.
See the Cleaning and Care section for cleaning instructions.
• It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the:
(1) door (warped), (2) hinges and latches
(broken or insecure), (3) door seals and sealing surface.
!
If the door, hinges/latches or door seals
are damaged, the appliance must not
be operated until it has been repaired
by an authorized service engineer.
It is hazardous for anyone except
factory trained service personnel to
service or make adjustments to this
oven. Contact your local Zanussi
Service Force Centre if service
should be required.
• Do not remove the outer case, door or
control panel at any time. Doing so may
cause exposure to extremely high voltage.
• Install or locate this oven only in accordance with ‘installation instructions’ found
in this manual.
• Use the appliance for its intended use as
described in this manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals in this appliance. This
type of oven is specifically designed to
heat, cook, or defrost food. It is not designed for industrial, laboratory, nor commercial use, as this will invalidate the
guarantee.
!
If smoke is observed, switch off or
unplug the appliance and keep the
door closed in order to stifle any flames. Never use water.
!
Do not allow children to use the
microwave without supervision until
adequate instructions have been
given so that the child is able to
safely operate the microwave and
understands the hazards of improper use.

Safety Instructions
recommended for microwave use.
• Containers with restricted openings, such
as bottles, should not be used for
microwave cooking.
• Use caution when removing a lid or
cover from a dish to avoid steam burns.
Utensil safety
• Most glass, glass ceramic and heat-resistant glassware utensils are excellent for
use in the microwave oven. Although
microwave energy will not heat most
glass and ceramic items, these utensils
can become hot as heat transfers from
the food to the container. Use oven gloves to remove dishes.
Foil containers
Shallow foil containers may safely be used
to reheat foods in your microwave oven providing the following rules are observed:
1. Foil containers should not be more than 3
cm (1¼”) deep.
2. Foil lids must not be used.
3. The foil containers must be at least twothirds full of food. Empty containers must
never be used.
4. Foil containers should be used singly in
the microwave oven and should not be
allowed to touch the sides. If your oven
has a metal turntable or cooking rack, the
foil container should be placed on an
upturned ovenproof plate.
5. Foil containers should never be re-used
in the microwave oven.
6. If the microwave oven has been in use for
15 minutes or more, allow it to cool before using it again.
7. The container and turntable may become hot during use, take great care when
removing either from the oven. It is advisable to use an oven cloth or glove when
doing so.
8. Remember when using an aluminium foil
container that the reheating or cooking
times may be longer than those you are
used to, always ensure that the food is
piping hot before serving.
Testing suitability of cookware
• Place the cookware in the microwave
along with a glass half full of water. Heat
on 900W (100%) for one minute. If the
cookware feels hot, you should not use it.
If it is just slightly warm, you can use it for
reheating but not for cooking. If the dish is
at room temperature, it is suitable for
microwave cooking.
• Paper napkins, wax paper, paper towels,
plates, cups, cartons, freezer wrap and
cardboard are great convenience utensils.
Always be sure containers are filled with
food to absorb energy and thus avoid the
possibility of overheating.
• Many plastic dishes, cups, freezer containers
and plastic wraps may be used in the
microwave oven. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions when using plastics in the oven.
Avoid using plastic utensils with foods that
have high fat or sugar content since these
foods reach high temperatures and could
melt some plastics.
• Do not leave the oven unattended when
heating or cooking food in plastic, paper or
other combustible containers.
• Metal containers and containers with
metallic trim should not be used in the
microwave oven, unless specifically

•
Do not heat food in a can in the microwave oven. Always remove the food to a
suitable container.
Do not use the appliance for deep fat frying, because the fat temperature cannot
be controlled, and hazardous situations
can result.
Popcorn may be prepared in the microwave oven, but only in special packages or
utensils designed specifically for this purpose. This cooking operation should never
be left un attended.
Pierce foods with non-porous skins or
membranes to prevent steam build-up
and bursting. Apples, potatoes, chicken
livers, and egg yolks are examples of
items that should be pierced.
The contents of feeding bottles and baby
food jars are to be stirred or shaken and
the temperature is to be checked before
consumption, in order to avoid burns.
!
Keep these instructions!
MAFF Rating
Explanation of the heating category label for
micro-wave ovens and small packs of food
(up to 500g/1lb, typical of ready meals for 1
or 2 people) as agreed by MAFF (the
Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food)
in conjunction with food and Microwave
Oven manufacturers.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups,
sauces and beverages in your
microwave oven, overheating the
liquid beyond boiling point can
occur without evidence of bubbling.
This could result in a sudden boil
over of the hot liquid. To prevent this
possibility the following steps should
be taken:
Avoid using straight-sided containers
with narrow necks.
Do not overheat.
Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway
through the heating time.
After heating, allow to stand in the oven
for a short time, stirring again before
carefully removing the container.

Defrosting Tips
1. It is better to underestimate defrosting
time if you are unsure. Food will continue
to defrost during the standing time.
2. Separate food into smaller pieces as
soon as possible.
3. Turn large items, e.g. joints, halfway
through the defrosting time.
4. Remove any thawed food as soon as
possible.
5. Remove or open any packaging before
defrosting.
6. Place food in a larger container than that
which it was frozen in to allow for easy
stirring.
7. Begin thawing poultry breast side down and
turn over halfway through defrosting time.
Delicate areas such as wing tips can be shielded with small pieces of smooth foil.
8. Standing time is very important, particularly
for large, dense foods which cannot be stirred in order to ensure that the centre is completely defrosted before cooking.
Manual defrosting
For manual defrosting (without using Auto Defrost features) use 150W. To speed up the
defrosting of dense foods over 450g (1lb), the oven may be started on full power for 1–3
minutes, then be reduced to 150W until defrosting is complete.

Microwave Hints
• Put large, thick pieces close to the edge of
the casserole and try to cut the food into
even-sized pieces. Always place the food
in the centre of the oven.
• The food will be more evenly cooked if you
stir or turn it regularly.
• Always set a shorter cooking time than
indicated in your recipe to avoid overcooking. The larger the amount of food the
longer it takes.
• Use little or no water for vegetables.
• Use less salt and spices than for conventional cooking.
• Season afterwards.
• Allow a few minutes ‘standing time' after the
oven has switched off to ensure complete
and even cooking results.
• Always ensure food is piping hot throughout before serving.
• Use gloves when taking dishes and food
from the oven.
• Always keep the oven clean – avoid spillovers and do not forget to clean under the
turntable and the inside of the door.
• It is preferable to use round or oval casseroles with a lid when cooking in your
microwave oven.
• Do not use metal or metal decorated casserole dishes. Certain plastic materials can melt
and be warped by hot food.
• Cover the food when cooking. Use a glass
lid, a plate or grease proof paper.
• Pastry, bread and the like can be defrosted
directly in a bread basket or on a paper towel.
• If frozen food is heated in its packaging, the
pack-aging should be opened. Packaging
containing metal or metal decoration must
not be used unless specifically recommended for use in the microwave. Remove
metal clips and wire ties.
• Smaller pieces of aluminium foil can be used
to cover parts that easily overcook such as
chicken legs.
• Food with peel or skin should be pierced
with a fork – e.g. potatoes and sausages.
Do not boil eggs in the microwave oven as
they can explode.

Care and cleaning
Cleaning the interior
The oven must always be clean. Residue of
food from spill-overs or spatters will absorb
microwave energy causing it to burn on. This
could reduce the efficiency of the oven and
may cause unpleasant odours. Do not
attempt to tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to any part of the oven.
Repairs should only be made by an authorised service engineer.
Always ensure that the oven is disconnected from the electricity supply
before cleaning.
Soilage that is allowed to remain on the
oven walls, door seal and door surface will
absorb microwave energy, reduce the efficiency of the oven, and possibly damage the
oven interior.
Use mild, liquid detergent, warm water and
a soft, clean cloth to remove soilage.
NEVER USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS,
COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANERS OR
STEEL WOOL PADS ON ANY PART OF
THE MICROWAVE OVEN.
To loosen difficult soilage, boil a cup of water
in the microwave oven for 2 to 3 minutes.
NEVER USE A KNIFE OR ANY UTENSIL
TO REMOVE SOILAGE FROM OVEN SURFACES.
To remove odours from the oven interior, boil
a cup of water containing 2 tablespoons of
lemon juice for 5 minutes.
!
Cleaning the accessories
Clean them with mild detergent after removing them from the cavity. The turntable support should be carefully handled.
The inside of the oven and turntable
get very hot, so do not touch them
immediately after use.
!
Cleaning the exterior
Open the oven door when cleaning the control panel. This will prevent the oven from
being turned on
accidentally. You should clean outside surfaces of the oven with mild liquid detergent
and water, followed by a wiping with clear
water to remove any excess detergent. Dry
with a soft cloth.
Spray-on window cleaners or all purpose
spray-on kitchen cleaners can also be used.
Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads
or harsh chemicals on outside surfaces of
your oven. To prevent damage to the working parts, do not allow water to seep into
the ventilation openings.

For the installer
1. Remove any promotion label from the door.
2. This oven can be used as a free standing
oven or built-in, into a kitchen cabinet
using kit number BF246, which is ordered
separately. To install the oven in a kitchen
cabinet follow the instructions supplied
with the building-in kit.
The oven should be installed on a flat,
level surface. The surface must be strong
enough to safely bear the weight (18 kg)
of the oven, and the contents. To avoid the
possibility of causing vibration or noise
the oven must be in a stable position.
3. Keep the oven away from heat and water.
Exposure to heat and water can lower
oven efficiency and lead to malfunctioning, so be sure to install the oven away
from heat and water sources.
4. If using the appliance as a free-standing
appliance do not block air vents on the
top and the sides of the cabinet and also
do not place any articles on the top of the
oven. A gap all around the oven is neces
sary : 140 mm above the oven and any
objects, 50 mm on the sides and 100 mm
behind the oven. If air vents are blocked
during operation the oven may overheat,
and this may lead to malfunctioning. Hot
air escapes from the vents, so be sure
not to obstruct them or let curtains come
between the oven and the rear wall.
5. Place the oven as far away from radios
and TVs as possible. This oven does conform to EEC requirements of radio interference suppression, but some interference
may occur if it is placed too close to a
radio or TV, so keep them as far apart as
possible.
Electrical connections
!
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any
liability should this safety measure not be observed.
26
Connecting to the mains
The oven is delivered with the power cord
and a plug for 240 V, 50Hz, earthed socket
outlet.
Earth protection minimizes the risks should
a shortcircuit occur. Check to ensure the voltage of the oven matches the supply.
N.B. If the oven is connected to the socket
via an extension cord, make sure the cord is
earthed.
!
This appliance must not be used on a
non-earth protected power supply.
Contact an electrician if you are uncertain regarding electricial connection of
the oven or provision of earth protection of the supply.
This appliance must be earthed. If this
appliance is fitted with a non-rewirable
plug for which your socket is unsuitable, the plug should be cut off and the
appropriate plug fitted. If it is necessary to change the fuse in a nonrewirable plug, the fuse cover must be refitted.
If the fuse cover is lost or damaged,
the plug must not be used until a replacement is obtained.
ZM 24ST
UK
Build-in model
Connect to a plug socket with protective
earth contact and fused with a 13 A-L automatic device or 13 A slow-blowing fuse.
When the oven is installed, there must be a
possibility of disconnecting it from mains
with a contact break of at least 3 mm on all
poles.
A suitable size of LS-switch, or a melting or
fly-out fuse, are suitable contact-breakers.
To install the appliance in a kitchen cabinet,
use the appropriate mounting frame. Note
the relevant instructions for installation and
connection. When building in to a high cabinet, you may use the lift door. Note the relevant information for installation and connection given in the operating instructions of the
lift door.
Warning !
Never operate the microwave oven with the
lift door closed. Such operation would
damage your appliance and invalidate the
guarantee.
