Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown. BUILDING IN It is important that the dimensions and materials of the surround or cabinet into which the oven will be built are correct and will withstand a temperature increase of at least 60°C above ambient; and that proper arrangements are made of a continuous supply of air to the oven so it does not overheat. FO 0039 Fig. 3 Dimensions of the appliance and recess required are given below (Fig. 1-2). Securing The Oven To The Cabinet Fit the appliance into the cabinet recess, open the oven door and secure the oven to the kitchen cabinet with four wood screws, which fit the holes provided in the oven frame (Fig. 3). FO 0374 Fig. 1 FO 0381 Fig. 2 6 ELECTRICAL CONNECTION We strongly recommend that all operations for the installation of your oven be carried out by QUALIFIED PERSONNEL to the relevant British Standards. The oven designed to be connected to 240V (50Hz) electricity supply. The oven has an easily accessible terminal block which is marked as follows: Letter L - Live terminal Letter N - Neutral terminal - Earth terminal THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED The cable used to connect the oven to the electrical supply should have the characteristics indicated in the table. It is necessary that you install a double pole switch between the appliance and theelectricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap of 3mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current rules. Important After installation and connecting, the cable must be placed so that it cannot at any point reach a temperature of more than 50°C above the ambient temperature. Before the appliance is connected, check that the main fuse and the domestic installation can support the load; and that the power supply is properly earthed. The manufacturer disclaims any responsibility should these safety measures not be carried out. This appliance meets the requirements laid down in EEC Directive No. 89/336 relating to the suppression of radio and TV interference. For Uk use only Models ZSA25 Rating Cable cross section mm2 and Type of the cable 2870 W 6 mm2 6242 Y Fuse min. 15 A The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point. For Europe use only Models ZSA25 Rating 2870 W Cable cross section mm2 and Type of the cable 2,5 mm2 Ho5 RR-F Fuse min. 13 A 7 WHEN THE OVEN IS FIRST INSTALLED Once the oven has been installed, it is important to remove the protective materials which were put on in the factory. Turn knob B on the timer until the manual function appears in the dial. Switch the oven control knob to fan ducted cooking and then set the thermostat control knob to MAX and leave it to run, empty, for 30 minutes to remove any unpleasant new smells. During this period, an unpleasant odour may be emitted, it is therefore, advisable to open a window for ventilation. REMEMBER: The timer must be set to MANUAL before the oven can be operated. This must be done whenever the cooker is switched off at the wall or when there is a power failure. If the oven indicator neons do not glow when the controls are switched on, it is most likely that the timer is ser for automatic cooking. Rating Plate The trivet When roasting do use the trivet in the meat tin. Fat and meat juices will drain into the meat tin below and can be used to make gravy. The trivet also prevents splashes of fat from soiling the oven interior. N.B. The meat tin should not be placed on a heated hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack. The cooling fan for the controls The cooling fan comes on immediately when the grill is switched on and after a short time when the oven is in use, and switches off when cooking is completed. During the initial period the cooling fan may cycle ON and OFF, this is quite normal. It may run on after the oven or grill is switched off to keep the controls cool. Always allow the cooling fan to cool the oven down before switching off the wall prior to carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work. The model number of your oven can be found on the rating plate on the lower front frame of the oven upon opening the door. The oven must be protected by a suitably rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the oven is given on the rating plate. NOTE The action of the cooling fan will depend on how long the oven or grill has been used and at what temperature. It may not switch in at all at lower temperature settings nor run on where the grill or oven has only been used for a short time. About condensation and steam Control panel indicator neon When food is heated it produces steam in the same way as a boiling kettle does. The oven is vented to allow some of this steam to escape. However, always stand back from the oven when opening the oven door to allow any build up of steam or heat to release. If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface on the outside of the oven, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused by a fault on the oven. To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away condensation and also soilage from surfaces. Cookware Baking trays, oven dishes, etc. should not be placed directly against the grid covering the fan at the back of the oven, or placed on the oven base. Do not use baking trays larger than 30 cm x 35 cm (12 in x 14 in) as they will restrict the circulation of heat and may affect performance. Advice on the effect of different materials and finishes of bakeware is given in 'Hints and Tips' in the appropriate oven section. 8 This light indicates whether the oven or grill is switched ON. In the case of the oven, the neon also indicates when the set temperature has been reached. It will cycle on, and off during use to show that the temperature is being maintained. If the neon do not operate as the instructions indicate the controls have been incorrectly set. Return all controls to zero and reset following the instructions for the required setting. When the oven is set for automatic cooking the neon should remain unlit during OFF periods.

This setting is intended to assist in thawing of frozen foods (see page 13). Fan ducted cooking - this allows you to roast or roast and bake simultaneously using any shelf, without flavour transference. Thermal grilling offers an alternative method of cooking food items normally associated with conventional grilling. The grill element and the oven fan operate together, circulating hot air around the food. Select maximum temperature of 200 °C. Fig. 4 FO O774 Grill - the oven door MUST be closed when grilling. The grill cannot be used at the same time as the oven. Inner grill element only. Can be used for grilling one or two items. Note: When the control knob (Fig. 4) is on position ( ) light or ( ) defrost, the temperature control knob (Fig. 5) should by on the « » (Off) position. Caution Do not place pans, dripping pans, biscuit pans or aluminium foil directly on the base of the oven. This could cause a heat build-up which could affect the performance of the oven and damage the oven enamel. Thermostat Control Knob (Fig. 5) 100 0 150 FO O769 20 The thermostat controlling the temperature is totally variable so it is possible to select temperatures between those marked. The MAX setting is particularly suitable for grilling. MAX Temperature selection starts at 50°C and is marked in 25°C increments up to maximum, where the temperature at the centre of the oven will reach approximately 250°C. 50 COOKING By turning the oven control knob clockwise, you select the cooking temperature. Fig. 5 Once the oven temperature has been selected, the temperature light will come on and remain on until the oven has reached the correct setting; after that, it will go on and off with the thermostat, showing how the temperature is being maintained. 11 USING THE FAN OVEN The Fan Oven HINTS AND TIPS The air inside the oven is heated by the element around the fan situated behind the back panel. The fan draws air from the oven, the element heats the air which is circulated into the oven via the top, base and sides of the back panel. The advantages of cooking with this function are: Runner positions are not critical, but make sure the shelves are evenly spread. Faster Preheating Because the fan oven quickly reaches temperature, it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven although you may find that you need to allow an extra 5-7 minutes on cooking times. For recipes which require higher temperatures, best results are achieved if the oven is preheated first, e.g. bread, pastries, scones, souffles, etc. Lower Temperatures Fan oven cooking generally requires lower temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow the temperatures recommended in the charts or remember to reduce temperatures by about 2025°C for your own recipes which use conventional cooking. Even Heating for Baking The fan oven has uniform heating on all runner positions. This means that batches of the same food can be cooked in the oven at the same time. However, the top shelf may brown slightly quicker that the lower one. This is quite usual. There is no mixing of flavours between dishes (see Fig. 7). When cooking more than one dish in the fan oven, place dishes centrally on the shelves rather than several dishes on one shelf. When the oven is full, you may need to allow slightly longer cooking time. A shelf may be placed on the floor of the oven. Place dishes on a shelf in this position rather than on the oven base, to allow air circulation around the food. When the oven is full of the same food, e.g. equal trays of small cakes or equal size victoria sandwich cakes, then they will be cooked in the same time and removed from the oven together. When different sizes of trays or types of food, e.g. biscuits and cakes are cooked, they will not necessarily be ready together. The fan oven can be used to heat foods through without thawing first, e.g. fruit tarts, mince pies, sausage rolls, and other small pastry items. Use a temperature of 190-200°C and allow 20-40 minutes (depending on the quantity of food in the oven). The use of too high temperatures can cause uneven browning. Check with the recommendations for oven temperatures given in the cooking charts, but be prepared to adjust the temperature by 10°C if necessary. Remember to reduce temperatures by about 20-25°C for your own conventional recipes. The oven is supplied with two anti-tip shelves. IMPORTANT: The anti-tip oven shelves must be positoned as shown in Fig. 6. 4 3 2 1 FO 1203 12 Fig. 6 FO 0061 Fig. 7 Only experience will enable you to determine the proper settings for your personal cooking needs. The temperatures are intended as a guide only. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the temperature to suit your individual requirements. The effects of dishes on cooking results Dishes and tins vary in their thickness, conductivity, colour, etc. which affects the way they transmit heat to the food inside them: A Aluminium, earthenware, oven glassware and bright shiny utensils reduce cooking and underneath browning. B Enamelled cast iron, anodized aluminium, aluminium with non-stick interior and coloured exterior and dark, heavy utensils increase cooking and underneath browning. HINTS AND TIPS • Place the frozen food a single layer where possible, and turn it over half way through the defrosting process. • The actual speed of defrosting is influenced by room temperature. On warm days defrosting will be faster than on cooler days. • DO NOT leave food at room temperature once it is defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or store cooked food in the fridge. • Care must always be taken when handling foods in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial growth and cross contamination when defrosting, preparing, cooking, cooling and freezing foods. Defrosting The defrosting function allows you to defrost frozen foods. The oven fan operates without heat and circulates the air, at room temperature, inside the oven. This increases the rate at which defrosting takes place. This function is particularly suitable for delicate food which could be damaged by heat, e.g. cream filled gateaux, iced cakes, pastries, bread and other yeast products. HINTS AND TIPS • Cover food with a lid, aluminium foil or plastic film to prevent drying out during defrosting. • Small or thin pieces of fish fillet or peeled prawns, mince, liver and thin chops will defrost in 1-2 hours. Ensure that they are cooked or refrigerated immediately after defrosting to maintain good food hygiene. • Place the food to be defrosted in a single layer and turn over half way through the defrosting process, where possible. • Joints of meat or poultry MUST BE THAWED THOROUGHLY BEFORE COOKING. A 1.5 kg/3lb oven-ready chicken will thaw in approximately 5 hours. The giblets must be removed as soon as possible during the thawing process. • Only joints of meat and poultry up to 2kg/4lb in weight are suitable for defrosting in this way. ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAWING. • Take care to follow the basic rules for hygiene when handling fresh, frozen, raw and cooked foods. 13 GRILLING GRILLING - INNER GRILL ELEMENT Important All grilling must be carried out with the oven door closed and the grill pan handle removed from the pan. Important All grilling must be carried out with the oven door closed and the grill pan handle removed from the pan. Most foods should be placed on the grid in the grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air to lift the food out of the fats and juices. Food such as fish, liver and kidneys may be placed directly on the grill pan, if preferred The inner grill provides, quick direct heat to the central area of the grill pan. By using the inner grill for cooking small quantities it can help to save energy. Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to allow for different thicknesses of food. Position the food close to the element for faster cooking and further away for more gentle cooking Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little oil or melted butter to keep them moist during cooking Accompaniments such as tomatoes and mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid when grilling meats When toasting bread, we suggest that the top runner position is used with the grid in its 'high' position Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few minutes before sealing steaks or toasting. Adjust the heat setting and the shelf as necessary, during cooking The food should be turned over during cooking, as required. NOTE: For safety in use, the grill element is controlled by the thermostat. During cooking, the grill cycles on and off to prevent overheating. COOKING GUIDE Cooking time depends on the thickness of the meat and not on its weight. Always grill with the door closed and remove the grill pan handle. Place the food in the centre of of the grid in the grill pan. Adjust the gril and grill pan runner position to allow for different thicknesses of food and follow the instructions for grilling. THERMAL GRILLING Used of thermal grilling Thermal grilling offers an alternative method of cooking food items normally associated with conventional grilling. The grill element and the oven fan operate alternately, circulating hot air around the food. The need to check and turn food is reduced. Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in the kitchen and allows you to grill with the oven door closed. With the exception of toast and rare steaks, you can thermal grill all the foods you would normally cook under a conventional grill. The lower part of the oven can be used to cook accompaniments at the same time, e.g. tomatoes and mushrooms with a mixed grill or breakfast. Dishes prepared in advance such as shepherd's pie, lasagne and au gratins can be heated through and browned on the top using the thermal grilling function. • Turn the multifunction selector to Thermal Grill . • Turn the main oven temperature control to the required setting (A temperature of between 140°C and 200°C is suitable for thermal grilling). NOTE: Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in the kitchen and is carried out with the main oven door closed, and with the grill pan handle removed. THINGS TO NOTE The oven indicator neon will glow until the oven has reached the desired temperature and then go OFF. It will then cycle ON and OFF showing that the oven temperature is being maintained. 14 The indicator windows for selector and oven temperature control will illuminate. selected. Be prepared to adjust temperature and shelf positions during cooking, if necessary. The oven fan and internal oven light will come on. Turn food over during cooking, as necessary. The control cooling fan will operate after a short time. It will run on after the controls are switched off until the appliance has cooled. Ensure that ready prepared or cooked chilled dishes, e.g. shepherds pie, moussaka, lasagne, etc., are piping hot throughout before serving. HINTS AND TIPS A temperature range of 140-220°c and shelf positions 3 and 4 are suitable for most foods. Be prepared to make adjustments during cooking to suit individual requirements. If thermal grilling on more than one level, it may be necessary to interchange the food on the shelves during cooking. Prepare foods in the same way as for conventional grilling. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little oil or butter to keep them moist during cooking. Most foods should be placed on the grill pan grid in the 'high' position in the grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air around the food. Food such as fish, liver and kidneys may be placed directly onto the trivet in the grill pan, if preferred. The use of the trivet beneath the grid when grilling fatty foods will help minimise splashing. Accompaniments such as tomatoes and mushrooms may be placed below the grid when grilling meat, or in a separate dish on a lower shelf. COOKING TIMES Cooking is more gentle, therefore food generally takes a little longer to cook with thermal grilling compared with conventional grilling. One of the advantages is that larger loads can be cooked at the same time. A general guide to cooking times is given below but these times may vary slightly depending on the thickness and quantity of food being cooked. Foods will cook more quickly the closer they are to the grill element and the higher the temperatures FOOD Grill and Economy Grill Thermal Grill Temp (°C) Time (Mins per side) Temp (°C) Time (Mins) Bacon Rashers Beefburgers Chicken Joints Chops - Lamb - Pork Fish - Whole Trout/Herring - Fillets Plaice/Cod Kebabs Kidneys - Lamb/Pig Liver - Lamb/Pig Sausages Toast Heating through and Browning, e.g. au-gratin, lasagne, shepherd's pie. 210 200 170 180 180 170 170 180 170 170 180 250 2-3 6-10 10-15 7-10 10-15 8-12 4-6 10-15 4-6 5-10 10-15 1-2 200 190 160 170 170 170 170 170 180 180 190 - 8-12 10-15 35-45 20-25 25-35 10-20 10-20 20-30 10-15 20-30 10-15 - - - 170 20-30 Browning dishes only 230 3-5 depending on size depending on size - The times quoted above are given as a guide and should be adjusted to suit personal taste. 15 HELPFUL HINTS WHEN BUYING AND PREPARING FOOD Care must be taken when handling foods in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth and cross contamination when preparing, reheating, cooking, cooling, defrosting and freezing foods: 1. Always ensure food you purchase is of good quality and in prime condition. Shop at a reliable source and buy the 'freshest' looking package avoid shopworn labels or produce covered in dust. 2. Avoid buying chilled or frozen products if you cannot store them straight away. The use of an insulated container when shopping is advisable. 3. Buy and consume foods prior to the 'Sell by' or 'Best Before' date. 4. When you arrive home, place perishable foods in the refrigerator or freezer immediately. Ensure they are well covered to prevent them drying out and to prevent any possible cross contamination with bacteria from raw to cooked foods. 5. Follow the cooking instructions on packets of prepacked and cook chill foods, but be prepared to adjust cooking time and temperatures to suit your particular oven. For example, the fan oven generally requires 20-25°C lower temperature than conventional ovens. 6. Always ensure that cook chill foods are thoroughly re-heated until they are piping hot throughout. 7. It is preferable to defrost frozen foods slowly in the refrigerator. Alternatively, a microwave cooker or the defrost function on your oven may be used. 8. Always cook defrosted foods immediately after thawing. Thawed food should never be refrozen. 9. Joints of meat and poultry should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking. 16 10. Cook meat thoroughly - use a meat thermometer if preferred, which penetrates the joint to check that the centre temperature has reached the required temperature (see table below). MEAT TEMPERATURES Beef Rare - 60°C Medium - 70°C Well Done - 80°C Pork Well Done - 80°C Lamb Medium - 70°C Well Done - 80°C 11. If not eaten straightaway after cooking, food should be cooled as quickly as possible (within one hour) and then refrigerated or frozen as required. (Do not put hot food into a Refrigerator or Freezer). 12. In the kitchen keep work tops, chopping boards and utensils clean with hot soapy water between preparation stages. Ideally, keep one chopping board for raw meat and another for other foods. Keep your dish cloths and tea towels clean. CLEANING THE OVEN Before cleaning always allow the cooling fan to cool the oven down before switching off at the electricity supply Cleaning materials Before using any cleaning materials on your oven, check that they are suitable and that their use is recommended by the manufacturer. Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives should also be avoided. Glass Panel Grease Filter When cooking meat the grease filter must be fitted over the upper oven fan by clipping it over the vents in the back panel, this will prevent a built-up of fat on the fan impellor. Do not use abrasive materials to clean the seal. The grease filter is dishwasher proof. When cooking is completed and the oven has cooled down, remove the filter as instructed below and wash carefully. - Push the protruding tongue on the filter, upward (See Fig. 8) This should be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water. Do not use abrasive scourers or steel wool. Oven Shelves To clean the oven shelves, soak in warm soapy water and remove stubborn marks with a well wetted soap impregnated pad. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. Oven Cavity The enamelled oven cavity is best cleaned whilst the oven is still warm. It is advisable to wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water after each use. However, from time to time it will be necessary to do a more thorough cleaning, using a proprietary oven cleaner. Replacing Components Prior to undertaking any maintenance work or replacing the oven light, be sure to disconnect appliance from the electricity supply. FO 0018 Fig. 8 Replacing The Oven Light Push in and turn the glass lid anticlockwise (Fig. 9). Remove the faulty bulb and replace with one which is heat resistant to 300°C. FO 0287 Fig. 9 Electric bulb: 15W, 220-240 V, 50 Hz, 300°C, E14. These bulbs are available from your local Zanussi Service Centre whose address can be found in the Zanussi Customer Care Booklet. 17 CARE OF CATALYTIC LINERS Catalytic liners destroy splashes of food and fats when the oven temperature is raised to around 220°C. To aid this process it is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two per week, without food, to ensure continued good performance from the Catalytic liners. Hints and tips • Manual cleaning of the Catalytic liner is not recommended. Damage will occur if soap impregnated steel wool pads, aerosol cleaners and any other abrasives are used. • Slight discolouration and polishing of the Catalytic surface may occur in time. This does not affect the Catalytic properties in any way. • Follow the recommendations below to keep oven soilage to a minimum. Cooking to reduce soilage Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher temperatures during roasting will increase soilage. Try cooking to lower temperatures for an increased length of time, you will save energy and often the joint is more tender. Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting meat; potatoes only require brushing with fat before cooking. Extra fat in the oven during roasting will increase splashing and soilage. It is NOT necessary to add water to the meat tin when roasting. The water and the fat juices from the joint create excessive splattering during cooking, even at normal temperatures, as well as causing condensation. Covering joints during cooking will also prevent splashing onto the interior surfaces; removing the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow extra browning, if required. Some large joints and turkeys especially benefit by this method of cooking, allowing the joint to cook through before the outside is overbrowned. Do use the trivet in the roasting tin. During roasting, the fat from the joint will be contained beneath the trivet and therefore prevent it from splattering onto the 'Catalytic' liner. 18 CLEANING THE HINGED GRILL This model has been fitted with a hinged top grill element to enable you to clean the roof of the oven easily. Then gently pull the grill downward to allow access to the oven roof. (see Fig. 11) Before proceeding ensure the oven is isolated from the electricity supply.

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG If the oven does not come on: * Check the oven is in manual operation * Check that it is plugged in properly * Check that the socket switch and/or the switch from the mains supply to the oven are ON * Replace the fuse in the plug, if required, with another of the same rating and check that this plug has been wired up correctly * Check that the socket, when present, is receiving power - by plugging in an appliance you know to be working * Check that the fuse in the fuse box is intact In after all these checks, the oven still does not work, contact your local Zanussi Service Centre quoting your model and serial number. Please note that it will be necessary to provide proof of purchase for any inguarantee service calls.
