It is quite normal for the freezer to seem warm on the
outside occasionally, owing to the heat generated by the
freezing process. This heat also helps to prevent the
formation of moisture on the outside of the appliance which
could cause rust.
If the freezer has been switched off briefly, the compressor
may not start immediately when the current is re-
connected. This is quite normal.
IN THE CASE OF A POWER FAILURE OR
The hold-over period mentioned in the "Technical
Specification" section of this book refers to an estimated
time the freezer temperature will take to rise to an
unacceptable level for keeping frozen foods.
Providing the period of power failure or breakdown does not
exceed the hold-over period there will be no risk of damage
to the frozen food, providing you do not open the lid during
If the freezer is only half full or the lid is opened this will
reduce the hold-over time.
After the breakdown period you are recommended to
check the condition of food to ensure it has not started to
thaw. Frozen food must NOT be re-frozen once it has
thawed out. The following guidelines should assist you.
Ice cream: Once thawed should be
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
Breads & Cakes: Can be re-frozen without
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and
used up quickly.
Cooked Dishes: ie. 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
Chicken: Should also be cooked and re-
frozen as a cooked dish.
HOW TO CHANGE THE BULB
Before changing the bulb, isolate the appliance from
the electricity supply. Unscrew the bulb, and replace
it with a new bulb (max. 15W). Then reconnect the
electricity supply. Extra bulbs are available from your
local Zanussi Service Force Centre.
