Setting the temperature
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 1s opened
— how much food 1s stored
— position of the appliance
Important
If the refrigerator is not defrosting correctly, it 1s
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 1s
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.
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment 1s suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
10
B. Thermostat knob
Freezing fresh food
It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting
when freezing fresh food.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 3.5 kg.
Place food to be frozen in the bottom drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Caution
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut 1s 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.
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; ready-cooked 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 in the oven.
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.
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.
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 ın the refrigerator or freezer until cool.
(Leave food 1n 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 1s 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 litre 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
1S consumed at 1ts best.
It 1s important that food 1s used before its “best
before” date.
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
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 airtight seal.
Packaging which 1s 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, 1t must be consumed within 24 hours.
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 1s already frozen as
this could cause the temperature of the frozen food
to rise and its quality and storage life to reduce.
11
Making ice cubes
A plentiful supply of ice can be made in the two trays
located above the ice servery. Fill the trays 34 full to
allow the ice to expand. To dispense the ice, fully turn
the dial as shown 1n the diagram below (Fig. 7).
The cubes will fall easily from the trays into the
servery below.
Never consume ice-cubes which have just come out
of the freezer. Their extremely low temperature can
cause frost burns.
l | 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.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap 1n
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.
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with
runners so that shelves can be positioned as desired
(Fig. 8).

Dual purpose meat box
The meat box can also be used as a salad crisper.
The На 15 reversible and when storing meat the 10mm
gap allows the meat to breathe.
By reversing the Па the box becomes atrtight and can
be used as a salad crisper.
Positioning the door shelf
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the door shelf can be adjusted 1n height.
To do this proceed as per Fig. 9.
The top shelf can be removed for easier cleaning (see
Fig. 10).

Drink dispenser
The container for cooling drinks (Fig. 11) is located in
the door of the fridge. It is easily removed from its
runners for filling and cleaning by pushing it upwards
from the left side and then by pulling sharply
outwards. Remove the clip on lid to fill.
To pour a drink, press a glass upwards against the tap
arms. To stop the flow of liquid remove the glass.
Before using the dispenser, we recommend that you
rinse it several times with hot water. For a thorough
cleaning of the container add a spoonful of
bicarbonate of soda to the rinsing water. Push the
dispenser tap on and off several times to allow sugar
deposits from soft drinks or wines to dissolve, or
alternatively remove for cleaning by unscrewing in an
anticlockwise direction. Empty the container and
rinse thoroughly with clean water.
If using the dispenser to store fresh fruit juice,
particular attention should be paid to the
manufacturers storage instructions. It 1s also advisable
to clean the dispenser thoroughly between every
filling, using a solution of sterilising fluid.
Use and features of the «CRISP”N
FRESH» filter
“Crisp’N Fresh” 1s the glass shelf on top of the salad
crispers which 1s 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.
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 Fig. 13. 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.

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
1s at the front.
When cleaning the shelf take care not to immerse the
guide in water and wipe any spills from the holder
quickly.
A Important
The guide 1s 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 still
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 fluctuation may
occur. A Zanussi fridge 1s 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 1s 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,
15
Defrosti ng Chicken: should also be cooked and re-frozen as a
cooked dish.
Refrigerator
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops.
/N 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. 14).
Fig. 14
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot soapy water
at regular intervals. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
Freezer
The freezer compartment of this model is of the «frost-
free» type. This means that no frosting occurs on the inner
walls of the compartment or on food during operation.
The absence of frosting 1s achieved by constant
circulation of cold air inside the compartment,
produced by an automatic fan blower.
Do37
The water produced by defrosting flows away - in the
case of both the freezer and refrigerator compartments
- through special drainage grooves into a container
positioned at the back of the appliance above the
compressor where 1t then evaporates.
À temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during
defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.
Do not overfreeze the freezer baskets because this
will obstruct the air flow and could result in frost
forming in the freezer.
Attention!
«In the event of a power failure causing the
temperature within your freezer to rise, do not re-
freeze the food without checking its condition. The
following guidelines should assist you.»
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: 1.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 re-
frozen as cooked dishes.
16
Before any maintenance or cleaning work 1s 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.
/N 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 1s 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 compressors at the back of the appliance, with
a brush or vacuum cleaner, see Fig. 15.
