IT IS MOST IMPORTANT THAT THIS INSTRUCTION 
BOOK SHOULD BE RETAINED WITH THE APPLIANCE 
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. SHOULD THE APPLIANCE 
BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER OWNER, OR 
SHOULD YOU MOVE HOUSE AND LEAVE THE 
APPLIANCE, ALWAYS ENSURE THAT THE BOOK IS 
SUPPLIED WITH THE APPLIANCE IN ORDER THAT 
THE NEW OWNER CAN GET TO KNOW THE 
FUNCTIONING OF THE APPLIANCE AND THE 
RELEVANT WARNINGS.
THESE WARNINGS ARE PROVIDED IN THE INTEREST 
OF SAFETY. YOU MUST READ THEM CAREFULLY 
BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING THE APPLIANCE.
 
 
This appliance is designed to be operated by 
adults. Children should not be allowed to tamper 
with the controls or play with the product.
 
 
Any electrical work required to install this 
appliance should be carried out by a qualified 
electrician or competent person.
 
 
This product should be serviced by an authorised 
ZANUSSI Service Centre, and only genuine 
spare parts should be used.
 
 
It is dangerous to alter the specifications or 
modify this product in any way.
 
 
Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance 
does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
 
 
ZANUSSI domestic refrigerators, freezers and 
fridge/freezers are designed to be used 
specifically for the storage of edible foodstuffs 
only.
 
 
There are working parts in this product which 
heat up. Always ensure that there is adequate 
ventilation as a failure to do this will result in 
possible food loss. See installation instructions.
 
 
Parts which heat up should not be exposed. 
Wherever possible, the back of the appliance 
should be close to a wall but leaving the required 
distance for ventilation as stated in the 
installation instructions.
 
 
Before defrosting, cleaning or maintenance work 
is carried out, be sure to switch off the appliance 
and unplug it.
 
 
Frozen food must NOT be re-frozen once it has 
thawed out.
 
 
Do not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the 
freezer as it creates pressure on the container, 
which may cause it to explode, resulting in 
damage to the appliance.
 
 
The cooling plate or refrigerated freezer shelves 
in this appliance contain channels through which 
the refrigerant passes. If these are punctured 
this would cause substantial damage to the 
appliance and result in food loss. DO NOT USE 
SHARP INSTRUMENTS to scrape off frost or 
ice. Under NO circumstances should solid ice be 
forced off the lining or shelves. Solid ice should be 
allowed to thaw, when defrosting the appliance. 
See Defrost instructions.
 
 
The appliance should be left for 2 hours after 
installation before it is turned on in order to allow 
the refrigerant to settle.
 
 
This appliance is heavy. Care should be taken 
when moving it.
 
 
Do not remove items from the freezer if your 
hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin 
abrasions or “frost/freezer burns”.
 
 
Ice lollies can cause “frost/freezer burns” if 
consumed straight from the freezer.
 
 
Manufacturers’ storage recommendations should 
be strictly adhered to. Refer to relevant 
instructions.
 
 
Under no circumstances should you attempt to 
repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out 
by inexperienced persons may cause injury or 
serious malfunctioning. Refer to your local 
ZANUSSI Service Centre and always insist on 
genuine spare parts.
