Location & Air Circulation
(4 inches)
Locate your freezer away from sources of heat e.g.
cookers, radiators, direct sunlight as extreme temperature
will affect its performance.
Allow a minimum 100mm (4 inches) between the top of
the freezer and the ceiling or the underside of a wall
Providing you follow the recommended ventilation
requirements you will :● Prolong the life of the freezer.
● Minimise the risk of condensation on the outside of
the freezer.
● Minimise the running costs.
● Minimise operating sounds caused by vibration.
Minimum space required to open door
The freezer needs a space of 600mm (24 inches) in front to allow the door to
When positioning the freezer next to a unit, a gap of 30mm (11/4 inch) can be left
at the hinge side of the door to allow the easy removal of furniture. If preferred
the freezer can be positioned so that a gap is not left. This will restrict how far the
door can be opened but the furniture can still be removed (see diagrams below).
The door hinge side can be changed to make it easier to open (see ‘Door Reversal’
in the CLEANING & MAINTENANCE section).
30mm or more
less than 30mm
Level the freezer when it is in its final location by adjusting the front feet, until firm
contact is made with the floor. This will stop rocking or vibration and keep the door
aligned which helps the freezer run reliably and efficiently.
Note: Before plugging in and switching on, leave the freezer standing in its
final location for at least 15 minutes to allow it to settle.
Hinge Covers:
After the front feet have been adjusted and the freezer is level fit the left and right
hand bottom hinge covers supplied.

WARNING: This appliance must be earthed.
The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible after
Your appliance comes fitted with a plug and a 13A fuse. If you need to replace the
fuse, only use those rated at 13A and ASTA approved to BS1362.
Changing the Plug
Cut off and dispose of the supplied plug if it does not fit your socket.
WARNING: To avoid a shock hazard do not insert the discarded plug into a socket
anywhere else.
If you change the plug, the colour of wires in the mains lead may not correspond with
the colour of the markings identifying terminals in the plug. You should therefore
wire it as shown above.
Changing the Mains Lead
This appliance is fitted with a special mains lead. If you need to replace the mains
lead due to damage or require a longer lead, one can be bought from Hotpoint
Service (see KEY CONTACTS, back page). It is strongly advised that this work is carried
out by a qualified electrician.

directives : Low Voltage Equipment - 72/23/EEC & 93/68 EEC
Electromagnetic Compatibility 89/336/EEC, 92/31/EEC & 93/68/EEC
Controlling the Temperature of the Freezer Compartment
The control wheel on the front panel adjusts the internal freezer temperature.
The internal freezer temperature should be -18˚C or colder.
The setting of the control wheel will depend on the location of the freezer, the room
temperature and how often the door is opened. The normal set point (marked by a 3
on the dial) is usually suitable. If you need to adjust the temperature turn the control
wheel using a coin to avoid damage:
Clockwise (higher number) - Colder
Anti-clockwise (lower number) - Warmer
You can check the temperature of the freezer compartment by using a Fridge Freezer
Thermometer available from Hotpoint Genuine Parts and Accessories Mail Order
Hotline (see KEY CONTACTS back page).
WARNING: Do not use a mercury filled thermometer, as breakage would cause a
health hazard.
Your freezer must NOT be placed in a room where the temperature goes below 2˚C or
above 38˚C for prolonged periods, as the internal freezer temperature will not be

red light may come on for a short period when opening the freezer door to load or
unload food, in this case storage times will not be affected.
Fast Freeze Button - Freezing Fresh Food
Depending on your model - the bottom compartment drawer (FZA50), the bottom
two compartment drawers (FZA80 and FZM80) should be used to freeze fresh food.
Transfer already frozen food to one of the upper drawers.
- Before loading 2kg or more of fresh food select fast freeze for the required
pre-freeze time (see chart below).
- If freezing up to 2kg of fresh food just select fast freeze when loading.
Once the fresh food is loaded leave fast freeze on for 24 hours to freeze the food as
quickly as possible.
Maximum freezing capacity in 24 hours:
Note : Don’t forget to turn fast freeze off after 24 hours from the introduction of
fresh food to be frozen.
However fast freeze will turn off automatically after 48 hours if you do forget.

Useful Advice
How Frost Free works
The frost free system completely eliminates the need for defrosting.
A fan circulates air around the freezer. This helps to remove moisture from the
compartment, therefore preventing the build up of ice.
It is normal to hear the fan when the freezer is cooling.
Additional benefits of the frost free system include:
More even temperatures throughout the freezer.
Faster cooling times.
Making the best use of your Freezer
To ensure that your freezer operates as efficiently as possible:
Follow food packaging “best before/use by” instructions or your suppliers
advice on a suitable maximum storage time.
Keep foods tightly covered to retain moisture and prevent flavour/odour
transference. Plastic bags, aluminium foil, plastic stretch wrap and containers
with lids are ideal.
Select chilled and frozen food last when shopping, transport in a ‘cool bag’
and place in freezer as soon as possible after arriving home.
Avoid opening the door unnecessarily or for longer than needed.
Allow hot or warm food to cool down in covered containers before placing in
the freezer, as placing hot food inside reduces efficiency.
Prepare fresh foods for freezing in small quantities to ensure that the food
freezes quickly and so that its quality does not deteriorate.
Ensure that packets/containers of food are dry before freezing otherwise
they may freeze together.
Useful Advice
Storing Food in a Freezer
Freeze and store either fresh food or long
term commercially frozen foods.
Generally speaking long term storage means
up to 3 months but this can vary, so always
follow your supplier’s recommendations
otherwise refer to the pictorial guide on the
door liner (as shown).
Place frozen food in the freezer
compartment as soon as possible after
buying it.
Liquid-filled bottles or sealed fizzy drinks must not be stored in freezer, as
they may burst.
Lollipops and water ices should not be given to children directly from the
freezer the low temperature may cause ‘freezer burns’.
Store ice cream towards the top front of the freezer and remove from freezer
15-30 minutes before serving.
Ensure food is labelled and dated before placing in freezer.
When freezing fresh food follow the instructions for using fast freeze (see
CONTROLS section).
Do not allow fresh food to come into contact with food already frozen, the
frozen food could start to defrost.
Once thawed, food should be cooked and eaten within 24 hours or cooked
and refrozen.
Useful Advice
Advice on Using Freezer Drawers
The freezer compartments must be used with the drawers.
The storage drawers can be easily removed. Pull the drawer towards you until it
reaches it’s stop position. Hold securely on both sides, lift the front of the drawer to
release and remove. For cleaning advice see CLEANING & MAINTENANCE section.
Ensure that the frozen food storage drawers are pushed back fully before closing the
Food can be separated into different storage drawers for easy identification.
When lifting or removing the large deep drawer it is important to hold the side
handles and not the front handle.
WARNING: The freezer drawers can become heavy when fully loaded with food. Care
must be taken if attempting to lift or carry a full freezer drawer. It is recommended to
remove the required food, rather than the whole freezer drawer.
Note : It is important not to touch or move any of the freezer drawers/parts
with wet hands as it may cause freezer burn or discomfort.
Ice Tray
When making ice, always use the tray with the lid provided. Take care not to overfill
with water.

keep frozen whilst cleaning.
Remove drawers from each compartment. Wash in warm water and washing
up liquid using a soft cloth, dry thoroughly.
Wipe the interior and fittings with a clean cloth wrung out in a solution of
either one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one pint of water or Milton™
sterilising fluid, diluted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Dry the interior thoroughly with a clean cloth before replacing fittings and
Note : It is important to ensure that cleaned drawers are thoroughly dried

to open. This is partly due to the
difference in temperature between the
room and internal freezer compartment.
If you have just closed the freezer door, it
maybe particularly difficult to open again
immediately. Wait 5 minutes for the
internal and external pressure to equalise
and try again.
There has been a power failure

These are the normal types of sound that your freezer will make.
The motor (compressor) makes a buzzing or humming sound when it is
running. This can be louder when it first switches on. This sound will
reduce over the first few months.
Gases flowing through the pipes can produce gurgling, bubbling,
roaring or humming noises.
Expansion and contraction of parts inside the freezer can produce a
cracking noise as they rapidly change temperature.
The circulating fan in the freezer can make a whirring or buzzing sound
as it blows cold air around the compartment.
