OPERATION
Setting the temperature
GB
The freezer compartment
The temperature inside the refrigerator and
freezer is regulated by a single 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;
the intermediate position is usually the most
suitable. The thermostat setting can vary as
the temperature inside the refrigerator
compartment depends on the following factors:
- room temperature
- how often the door is opened
- how much food is stored
- position of the appliance
Important
If the refrigerator is not defrosting correctly, it is
possible that because a very low temperature
has been selected and 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; however you
should turn the setting lower occasionally to
allow automatic defrosting.
To ensure that the appliance is working
efficiently when the room temperature drops
below 14°C, a switch is located next to the
thermostat (Fig. 13).
No damage can be caused by leaving the
switch in this position for any period of time (see
page 18 Low ambient operation).
Fig. 13
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable
for storage of commercially frozen food and for
freezing fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat
setting when freezing fresh food.Depress the
ambient switch at least 12 hours before loading
food to be frozen.(Fig.13)
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of
the freezer as this is the coldest part.
If large quantities of food are to be stored,
remove all drawers and baskets from the
appliance and place food on cooling shelves.
Pay careful attention not to exceed load limit
stated on the side of the upper section.
Caution
In the event of a power cut the food in the
freezer will not be affected if the power cut is
short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the
door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be
consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen
(see page 16).
DEFROSTED COOKED FOOD MUST NOT BE
REFROZEN.
Thawing
Food can be thawed in a number of ways,
depending on the type of food and the size of
the packs. Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed
in the refrigerator compartment and small
pieces of meat or poultry can even be cooked
while still frozen, but you must ensure that it is
thoroughly cooked through. Vegetables should
be directly immersed in boiling water; readycooked dishes can be placed directly in the
oven in their aluminium wrapping. A microwave
oven is particularly suitable for thawing any type
of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the oven
instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers
in the oven.
Making ice cubes
A
D710
A - Thermostat dial
The appliance is provided with two plastic ice
cube trays.
Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand
and place them in one of the freezer drawers.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a
slight twist to release the cubes.

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-aweek 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 1itre 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.
■
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 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 Iitre 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.
12
GB
■
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from bits and
pieces.
■
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.
■
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh
and of the best quality.
■
The size of each pack should be small
enough to ensure that it is used in one go .
Small packs freeze more quickly and
uniformly and give better results.
■
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be
refrozen. Lean food keeps better and longer
than fatty food, salt reduces the storage time.
■
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium
freezing bags or foil so that they adhere to
the food and provide an airlight seal .
■
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could
indicate that the product has not been kept at
a suitable temperature and that it may have
lost its original quality. Partially thawed food
must not be refrozen, it must be consumed
within 24 hour. Never exceed the storage
times indicated.
■
Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy
drink in the freezer as they may explode.
Containers with a lid must not be filled to the
brim.
■
Do not open the door or place extra fresh
food in the freezer next to food which is
already frozen as this could cause the
temperature of the frozen food to rise and its
quality and storage life to reduce .
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store
warm food or evaporating liquide 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.
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
crisper.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way
for one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad
crispers.
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.
Fig. 14
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator ae equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be
positioned as desired .
For better use of space, the front half-shelves
can lie over the rear ones.
Fig. 15
Positioning the door shelves
To perrnit storage of food packages of various
sizes, the door shelves can be adjusted in
height. To do this proceed as per Fig. 15.

Cool check temperature guide
This model has a cool check temperature guide
fitted to a shelf in the fridge compartment. The
guide is designed to show whether the fridge is
operating at safe temperatures for all food
types. The guide consists of a temperature
sensitive strip sealed in the shelf trim.
When the fridge is operating at the safe
temperature to store food, the guide will appear
black. If the temperature in the fridges rises the
guide will show the words TOO WARM. The
temperature in the fridge may rise if the door
has just been opened, the fridge has just been
loaded with shopping or if the room temperature
is higher than normal. See “Everyday use of the
temperature guide” for further information.
The shelf with Cool Check temperature guide
must be placed in the fridge according to the
instructions located on the fridge wall and
always ensure the guide ís at the front.
When clearing the shelf take care not to
immerse the guide in water and wipe any spills
from the holder quickly.
Important
The guide is only suitable for use in the model
supplied and accurate temperature guidance
cannot be guaranteed if transferred to other
appliances.
The guide will not work in the freezer
compartment.
Starting the appliance
Check that the shelf with the Cool Check is
positioned correctly (as described previously).
Close the door and leave the appliance
overnight to allow the temperature to reach a
safe level. If after waiting overnight the
temperature guide stili shows TOO WARM,
adjust the thermostat to a higher number, close
the door and allow to stand overnight. A higher
thermostat setting may be required to keep the
fridge temperature at the safe storage level
during warmer weather. For more information
on starting you appliance, see “Operation”.
Everyday use of the cool check
temperature guide
During everyday use a fridge door is opened
many times and as a result temperature
14
fluctuation may occur. A Zanussi fridge is
designed to cope with any changes in
temperature but under certain conditions the
temperature guide in the appliance may show
TOO WARM.
What to do if the Cool Check temperature
guide shows TOO WARM
The Cool Check guide may show TOO WARM
if:
1. The fridge is switched off.
ACTION: Start the appliance in accordance
with the instructions.
2. The fridge door has recently been
opened or is left open for more than
approximately one minute.
ACTION: As mentioned before the
temperature guide is sensitive to changes in
fridge temperature and opening the fridge
door for prolonged periods may cause the
guide to show TOO WARM. This should not
cause concern as such fluctuations in
temperature do not generally affect the safe
storage of food. Leave the fridge door closed
for as long as possible so the temperature
returns to a safe level, the guide should then
appear black.
3. The fridge has been loaded with fresh
shopping.
ACTION: When fresh shopping or additional
quantities of food are placed in the fridge, the
temperature may rise and cause the guide to
show TOO WARM.
Do not adjust the thermostat as the time
taken for the guide to appear black will
depend on the quantity and the temperature
of food introduced.
4. The fridge temperature is above the
recommended maximum for the safe
storage of all food types.
ACTION: To lower the fridge temperature,
adjust the thermostat, then leave the
appliance overnight before checking the
guide again.
5. If the guide is still showing TOO WARM,
adjust the thermostat again, to a colder
setting, and leave the appliance overnight
before checking the guide again.
Defrosting
Refrigerator
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time
the compressor stops.
The water is discharged, via the pipe, into a try
located at the back of the appliance above the
compressor, where it evaporates .
Important
When defrosting the freezer, the fridge is also
controlled by the thermostat and will not be
operational during this period. A temperature
rise of the frozen food packs, during defrosting,
may shorten their safe storage life.
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 drawer. Use the special cleaner
provided which you will find already inserted into
the discharge hole (Fig.17).
Attention!
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot
soapy water at regular intervals. Dry thoroughly
before replacing.
Ice-cream: once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: if soft should be cooked
and used up.
Breads & Cakes: 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.
Freezer
When the frost has reached a thickness of up to
4mm it can be removed using the ice scraper
provided with the appliance. During this operation
it is not necessary to disconnect the appliance
from the mains and remove the food. Never use
metal tools for this operation.
For complete defrosting (once or twice a year)
proceed as follows:
«In the event of a power failure causing the
temperature within your freezer to rise, do
not refreeze the food without checking its
condition. The following guidelines should
assist you.»
- turn the thermostat dial to the «OFF» position
(O) or disconnect the appliance from the
mains.
Fig. 17
- Remove any food from inside the freezer and
fridge, wrap it in several sheets of newspaper
and store in a cool,dry place.
- Leave the door openand insert the ice scraper
under the channelin the centre of the lower
part of the appliance; place a low-sided
container beneth the scraper to collect the
water (Fig. 18).
D037
Fig. 18
- Clean and dry thoroughly.
- Replace the scraper in one of the drawers .
- Reconnect the appliance to the mains or reset
the thermostat to a functioning position.
- After letting the appliance run for a least half
an hour, replace the previously removed food
into the compartment.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
GB
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is
carried out, DISCONNECT the appliance from
the ELECTRICITY supply.
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.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, disconnect from the electricity supply,
empty all foods and clean the appliance, leaving
the doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
Changing the light bulb
Fig. 19
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch
off the appliance and disconnect from the
electricity supply, then replace the bulb as
follows;
unscrew the light cover and then pull it outward
by pressing as shown in the Fig. 19. Unscrew
the bulb and replace it with a new 15 watt bulb
(available from your nearest Zanussi Service
Force Centre).

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING IS WRONG?
GB
Before contacting your local Zanussi Service Centre, check the following points:
The appliance does not work
Check that:
■
There is power at the socket.
■
Ensure that there is not a power cut by
checking the household lights.
■
The fuse has not blown.
■
The air circulation passages are not covered.
■
The thermostat dial is in the correct position.
Vibration or abnormal noises...
■
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the
coils of tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator. When the compressor is on,
the refrigerant is being pumped round, and you
will hear a whirring 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.
Traces of water on the bottom of the
fridge compartment...
The light does not come on...
■
The defrosting water discharge hole is not
obstructed.
■
The bulb is fitted correctly.
■
Replace the bulb if it has blown.
Fridge does not defrost...
■
The thermostat setting is not too high (see page
11).
Other points to check...
■
Have you turned the thermostat to the correct
setting?
■
Have doors been left open causing the
temperature to rise?
■
Sometimes the freezer door will be difficult to
open shortly after you have closed it. Don’t
worry this is due to pressure difference which
will quickly equalise and allow the door to open
normally.
Low ambient operation
During prolonged periods of low ambient temperatures,ie;10°C and lower, the compressor on single
compressor fridge freezer can remain inoperative during this time .
This is due to the air temperature within the refrigerator compartment being maintained at 6°C or under
thus not calling the thermostat to energise the compressor .
During a normal night time period of approximately 8 hours a traditional fridge freezer can normally
maintain the frozen food temperature bur if the appliance is left for longer period in a low ambient the
freezer will defrost .
