OPERATION
Before use
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
drawers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda
(5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Do not use soap or
detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad drawers.
Butter & 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.
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and
one «OFF» (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum cold
Position 6 = maximum cold
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
An intermediate position is usually the most suitable,
although the temperature will be affected by:
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with
runners so that shelves can be positioned as
desired.
Room temperature
How often the door is opened
l How much food is stored
l Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control
setting all these factors have to be considered and
some experimentation may be necessary.
When altering the temperature setting, allow 24
hours for the temperature to stablise before making
further changes.
Important
If the fridge is not defrosting correctly, it is
possible that because a very low temperature has been selected, the motor is working
continuously, which prevents the defrost
cycle from operating.
To ensure correct defrosting, a lower
number should be selected on the
thermostat and you should notice that the
motor cuts out from time to time, which is
correct.
If you wish to return to a lower temperature,
turn the thermostat to a higher number, how
ever you should turn the setting lower occasionally to allow automatic defrosting.

Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be adjusted in height.
To do this proceed as in the figure.
The top shelf can be removed for easier cleaning.
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.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.

Use and features of the «CRISP'N
FRESH» filter
"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.
D392
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 figure. The filters
and the glass cover can be washed gently in warm
soapy water, they should not be put in the dishwasher.
Replacement filters can be purchased as a spare part
from your local Zanussi Service Centre.

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.
■
■
■
■
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
■
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
■
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
■
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
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.
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.
■
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
placed in the refrigerator 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.
■
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean the interior (see “Maintenance and
Cleaning”).

DEFROSTING
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance
above the compressor, where it evaporates.
Important
To avoid defrost water overflowing into
the fridge, periodically clean the water
discharge hole in the centre of the V
shaped drip collector at the back of the
refrigerator compartment behind the fruit
and vegetable drawers. Use the special
cleaner provided which you will find
already inserted into the discharge hole.
D037
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when
the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing at
the rear, to the cooling plate.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped round, and you will hear a whirring sound or
pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you will
hear a faint ‘click’ when the thermostat cuts in and out.
8
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
When the appliance is not in use
Important
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is
carried out, DISCONNECT the appliance from
the ELECTRICITY supply.
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all
foods and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar
to prevent unpleasant smells.
Internal cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and
bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse
and dry thoroughly.
NEVER USE DETERGENTS, ABRASIVE POWDERS,
HIGHLY PERFUMED CLEANING PRODUCTS OR
WAX POLISHES, TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR AS
THESE WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE AND LEAVE
A STRONG SMELL.
Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular
intervals and make sure that the drain hole is never
obstructed, so that the defrost water may flow freely.
External cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do
NOT use abrasive products.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill)
and the compressor at the back of the appliance, with
a brush or vacuum cleaner, see the figure.
You MUST ensure that the appliance is switched OFF.
An accumulation of dust will affect the performance of
the appliance and cause excessive electricity
consumption.
