foodstuff. This appliance is designed
to operate in ambient temperatures
(surrounding air temperature) between
16°C and 38°C. If these temperatures
are exceeded i.e., colder or warmer, the
appliance will not operate correctly. Should
the ambient temperatures be exceeded for
long periods, the temperature in the freezer
compartment will rise above -18°C and food
spoilage may occur.
Before use
Remove all securing tapes. Wash the inside
of the appliance with lukewarm water with a
little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0.5
litre of water). Do not use soap or detergent
as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance
thoroughly.

To Start the appliance
Freezing fresh food
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours
after installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the
mains supply.
3. Turn the thermostat control to the
required setting. A midway setting is
usually suitable for normal operation (see
thermostat control).
4. Leave the appliance for approximately 4
hours for the correct temperature to be
reached before placing food inside.
Place the fresh food on the top freezer shelf.
Food may need rearranging to achieve this.
During the freezing process the temperature
of fresh food should be reduced quickly so
that ice crystals are kept as small as possible
to prevent damaging the structure of food. If
freezing takes place slowly large ice crystals
form and these will affect the quality of food
once it has defrosted.
Thermostat control
The thermostat control situated in the control
panel regulates the temperature of the
freezer compartment.
● Position "Min" -Cold.
● Position "Normal" -Colder.normally, setting
at this position.
● Position "Max" -Coldest.
The temperature will be affected by:
● Room temperature
● How often the door is opened
● How much food is stored
● Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control
setting, all these factors have to be considered
and some experimentation may be necessary.
Do not allow children to tamper with the
controls or play with the product.
The freezer compartment
The
symbol means that your
freezer will store frozen food at -18°C
(-0.4 ° F) or colder allowing for long term
frozen food storage and freezing of fresh
food. The freezer temperature is controlled
automatically by the thermostat situated
in the control panel. Due to the different
installations, methods of usage and weather
conditions, adjustments to the temperature
settings may be required.
These are best assessed against a
temperature reading on a thermometer
buried in the frozen food. The reading
must be taken quickly as the thermometer
temperature will rise rapidly after removal.
www.zanussi.com
Frozen food storage
The appliance has the following net storage
volume: 68 litres. This is a standard
measurement and the actual capacity
depends upon the density and sizes of the
food. Pre-packed commercially frozen food
should be stored in accordance with the
manufacturer's instructions for a 4 star frozen
food compartment and should be put in the
freezer as soon as possible after purchase.
Your freezer provides for long term storage
which generally means up to 3 months but the
length of the time can vary and it is important
to follow the recommended times shown on
packets of commercially frozen food. Do not
place sealed containers or carbonated liquids
creates pressure on the container which may
cause it to explode resulting to damage to the
freezer. Ice cubes and ice lollies should not
be consumed immediately after removal from
the freezer as it may result in low temperature
skin abrasions. Manufacturers storage times
should be adhered to.
Tips
Any opened packets of frozen food, should
be rewrapped in airtight materials to prevent
surface evaporation which causes drying or
"freezer burn" . Frozen food which is allowed
to thaw accidentally should either be used
immediately or thrown away. Alternatively if
the food is uncooked and has not been aim
to check dates on packets and rotate than
textures begin to change.

Hints and tips
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
shelves.
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 thermostat cuts in and out.
Food storage
When you arrive home, place the frozen food
in the freezer immediately. Keep the time
between buying chilled food and placing it in
your fridge as short as possible.
Do not push food together too much; try to
allow air to circulate around each item.
Do not store food uncovered. Ensure that
food placed in the freezer is dated and
labeled and used in date order to ensure that
food is consumed at its best. Remove suspect
food from your refrigerator and clean, refer to
cleaning and maintenance.
Energy saving advice
Do not install the appliance close to sources
of heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or
radiator. Locate the appliance in a cool wellventilated room and make sure that the air
openings is good.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages.
Always leave warm food to cool down in room
freezer.
Food which is to be frozen (when cool)

should be placed in the fridge before being
transferred to the freezer. Thaw frozen food in
the fridge. This will ensure safer defrosting of
food and reduce the work of the refrigeration
unit.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
time, warm air will enter the cabinet, and
cause
energy consumption.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing
the door from closing properly.
It is advisable to periodically clean the freezer.
In the event of a power failure
If there is a power failure during the storage
of frozen food, keep the door closed. If the
temperature within your freezer should rise,
do not refreeze the food without checking its
condition.
The following guidelines should assist you:
● Ice cream :Once thawed should be
discarded.
● Fruit and vegetables: If soft should be
cooked and used up.
● Bread and cakes: Can be refrozen without
danger.
●
up quickly.
● Cooked dishes: i.e. casseroles, should be
refrigerated and used up.
● Large pieces of meat: Can be re-frozen
providing there are ice crystals remaining
within them.
● Small joints: Should be cooked and then
re-frozen as cooked dishes.
● Chicken: Should be cooked and re-frozen
as a fresh dish

Maintenance and cleaning
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. Do
not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly
perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes
or cleaning products containing bleach or
alcohol.
External cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy
water. Do NOT use abrasive products.
There are sharp edges on the underside
of the product, so care should be taken
when cleaning. Once or twice a year
dust the compressor at the back of the
appliance, with a brush or vacuum cleaner,
as an accumulation of dust will affect the
performance of the appliance and cause
excessive electricity consumption.

www.zanussi.com
1. Wrap any food in layers of newspaper or
blankets.
2. Switch the appliance off at the wall socket
and remove the plug.
3. Open the freezer door.
4. Place a suitable container to collect the
defrosting water.
5. After defrosting, clean and dry the
interior.
6. Switch the appliance on and replace any
frozen food.
Defrosting can be speeded up by putting
bowls of hot (not boiling) water in the freezer
and loosening the frost with a suitable plastic
scraper.
If the temperature of frozen food is allowed to
rise during defrosting, its storage life may be
shortened.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, disconnect from the electricity supply,
empty all of the food and clean the appliance,
leaving the door ajar to prevent unpleasant
smells.
