Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
9. Refit the fridge door and replace the middle hinge
to the left hand side.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
10.Replace the door and bottom hinge (1) on the
opposite side.
Ð room temperature
11. Refit the feet (2-3) on the opposite side.
Ð how often the door is opened
Ð how much food is stored
Ð position of the appliance
Attention
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a low setting.
G
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the
knob to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
Low Room Temperature Switch
To ensure that the appliance is working efficiently
when the room temperature drops below 16¡C, the
switch mounted next to the thermostat control should
be switched on.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 12 Low

The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
When freezing large amounts of fresh food turn the
thermostat to maximum approximately 1 hour prior to
freezing.
When the food is frozen return to the normal
position.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg. of fresh
food.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
If you need to store large quantities of food, you can
remove the drawer from the appliance and pile the
food directly on the cooling shelves, always
respecting the load limits where they are stated.
Important
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 .
DEFROSTED COOKED FOOD MUST NOT BE
REFROZEN.
Frozen food storage
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to
depress the ambient switch for at least two hours
before storing frozen food.

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-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.
¥
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty
food, salt reduces the storage time.
¥
¥
¥
Home visits are made between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Visits may be available outside these
hours in which case a premium will be charged.
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
¥
Exclusions
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
¥
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
put in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
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 hours.

After letting the appliance run for at least half an
hour, replace the previously removed food into
the compartment.
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.
Attention!
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.
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.

GUARANTEE CONDITIONS
Standard guarantee conditions
We, Zanussi, undertake that if within 12 months of the date of the purchase this Zanussi appliance or any part
thereof is proved to be defective by reason only of faulty workmanship or materials, we will, at our option repair
or replace the same FREE OF CHARGE for labour, materials or carriage on condition that:
The appliance has been correctly installed and used only on the electricity supply stated on the rating plate.
The appliance has been used for normal domestic purposes only, and in accordance with the manufacturerÕs
instructions.
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-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.
¥
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty
food, salt reduces the storage time.
¥
¥
¥
Home visits are made between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Visits may be available outside these
hours in which case a premium will be charged.
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
¥
Exclusions
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
¥
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
put in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
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 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
¥
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.
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 .
¥
The symbols on the drawers show different types
of frozen goods.
¥
The appliance has not been serviced, maintained, repaired, taken apart or tampered with by any person not
authorised by us.
All service work under this guarantee must be undertaken by a Zanussi Service Force Centre. Any appliance or
defective part replaced shall become the CompanyÕs property.

¥
Appliances found to be in use within a commercial environment, plus those which are subject to rental
agreements.
¥
Do not store food uncovered.
Products of Zanussi manufacture which are not marketed by Zanussi.
¥
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
¥
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to ÒMaintenance and Cleaning).
¥
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 Òbest
beforeÓ 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 debris.
¥
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.
¥
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.
