as to remove the typical smell of a brand-new
product, then dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive
powders, as these will damage the finish.
www.zanussi.com
Daily use
Storage of frozen food
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.
The freezer drawers ensure that it is quick and
easy to find the food package you want. If large
quantities of food are to be stored remove all
drawers . On all shelves it is possible to place
food that protrude until 15 mm from the door.
Important! In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if
the power has been off for longer that 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).
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 Quick Chill
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 fridge.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this
period do not add other food to be frozen.
After 24 hours, when the freezing process is
completed, deactivate the Quick Chill function
(see "Quick Chill function").
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.
www.zanussi.com
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of
food packages of various sizes, the door
shelves can be
placed at different
heights.
Gradually pull the
shelf in the direction
of the arrows until it
comes free, then reposition as required

Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be
positioned as desired.
Removal of freezing baskets from the
freezer
The freezing baskets have a limit stop to prevent
their accidental removal or falling out. At the
time of its removal from the freezer, pull the basket towards yourself and, upon reaching the end
point, remove the basket by tilting its front upwards.
At the time of putting it back, slightly lift the front
of the basket to insert it into the freezer. Once
you are over the end points, push the baskets
back in their position.

Helpful hints and tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear a faint gurgling and a bubbling
sound when the refrigerant is pumped
through the coils or tubing. This is correct.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped around and you will hear a
whirring sound and a pulsating noise from the
compressor. This is correct.
• The thermic dilatation might cause a sudden
cracking noise. It is natural, not dangerous
physical phenomenon. This is correct.
• When the compressor switches on or
switches off, you will hear a faint "click" of the
temperature regulator. This is correct.
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,
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
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has
a strong flavour
• position food so that air can circulate freely
around it
8
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.
Bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored either on the bottle rack or the door bottle shelf.
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;
www.zanussi.com
• 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.
• 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.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you should:
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.
• 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.
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 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 drain
hole into a special container at the back of the
appliance, over the motor compressor, where it
evaporates.
Clean the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush. This operation will improve
the performance of the appliance and save
electricity consumption.
www.zanussi.com

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.
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.
Troubleshooting
Caution! Before troubleshooting,
disconnect the power supply.
Only a qualified electrician or competent person
must do the troubleshooting that is not in this
manual.
Problem
Important! There are some sounds during
normal use (compressor, refrigerant circulation).
Possible cause
Solution
