ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR
PROPER USAGE
Saving Energy Tips
• In the event of a power failure, call the local
office of your Electricity Company and ask how
long it is going to last.
- Most power failures that are corrected in an
hour or two will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures. However, you should minimize
the number of door openings while the power
is off.
- Should the power failure last more than 24
hours, remove and discard all frozen food.
• If a key is provided with refrigerator, the keys
should be kept out of the reach of children and
not be kept in the vicinity of the appliance.
• The appliance might not operate consistently
(frozen contents can thaw or temperatures
can become too warm in the frozen food
compartment) when sited for an extended
period of time in a location where ambient
air temperatures are constantly below the
temperatures for which the appliance is
designed.
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as bananas and melons.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there
is no need to manually defrost your appliance.
This will be carried out automatically.
• Temperature rise during defrosting complies
with ISO requirements.
But If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of frozen food while the appliance
defrosts, wrap the frozen food in several layers
of newspaper.
• Any increase in the temperature of frozen food
during defrosting can shorten its storage life.
• Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed
completely.
- Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with
adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight
and never put it near a direct source of heat (a
radiator, for example).
- Never block any vents or grilles on the
appliance.
- Allow warm food to cool down before placing it
in the appliance.
- Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the
frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
- Do not keep the door of the appliance open for
too long when putting food in or taking food
out.
The shorter the time the door is open, the less
frost build-up you’ll have in the freezer.
- Provide sufficient clearance to the right, left,
back, and top for air circulation when installing
the refrigerator. This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your energy bills lower.

CHECKING THE WATER
DISPENSER LINE
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE
A water dispenser is one of the helpful features on
your new Samsung Refrigerator.
To help promote better health, the Samsung water
filter removes unwanted particles from your water.
However, it does not sterilize or destroy
microorganisms.
You may need to purchase a water purifying
system to do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate properly, a
water pressure of 20~125 psi (pound per square
inch) is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) paper
cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
If the Refrigerator is installed in an area with low
water pressure (below 20psi), you can install a
booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
Make sure the water storage tank inside the
Refrigerator is properly filled.
To do this, press the water dispenser lever until the
water runs from the water outlet.
Water line installation kits are available at
extra cost from your dealer.
We recommend using a water supply kit
that contains copper tubing.
Connecting the water line to the
Refrigerator.
There are several items that you need to purchase
to complete this connection.
You may find these items sold as a kit at your local
hardware store.
• 1/4” compression nut
• plastic tubing
• copper tubing
• ferrule

households.
5. Open the refrigerator door and make sure there
are no water leaks coming from the water filter.
A newly installed water filter cartridge may
cause water to briefly spurt from the water
dispenser.
This is due to air getting into the line.
It should pose no problem to operation.

Troubleshooting
SOLUTION
The refrigerator
does not work at
all or it does not
chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from
circulating?
• Check if cooling off function is on. If the Freezer/Fridge temperature indicator is
moving, refer to page 20 to cancel the cooling off function.
The food in the
fridge is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room very low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest part of the fridge?
You hear unusual
noise or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• If the refrigerator’s water supply line is not connected and water is not being supplied
to the refrigerator, the refrigerator will make unusual noises if the ice maker is on or if
you push the water dispenser lever. To stop the noises, press the Ice Type button until
the Ice Off icon lights up (at least 3seconds) indicating that the ice maker is off.
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator.
This is normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding
in relation to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
The front corners
of the appliance
are hot and
condensation is
occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the front corners of the
refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar?
Condensation can occur when you leave the door open for a long time.
Ice is not
dispensing.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before making ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
Make sure Ice Type is set to Cubed or Crushed.
• Is there any ice blocked within the ice maker bucket?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature lower.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
• This is normal.
The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant liquid circulating through the
refrigerator.
There is a bad
smell in the
refrigerator.
