Door hard to open. It has just closed after being opened. If you open the door again within 5~10 seconds, it could be hard to open due to the pressure difference between the inside and the outside of the refrigerator. Try again in five minutes. You hear a water flowing noise (Ex: gurgling, sizzling or popping) or a clicking sound in the refrigerator. (Ex: clicking, rattling, chirping, cracking) The flow of refrigerant through the cooling coils may make a water flowing noise (ex: gurgling, sizzling, popping) or a water dropping noise may occur during the defrost cycle as ice melts and flows.

If wireless router can not be accessed by the other devices, the wireless router probably has a problem. Please contact with wireless router manufacturer. • If the wireless router is located far away from the Fridge, move the wireless router closer to the Fridge and see if the fridge detects it. • Turn the power of both the Wireless router and the Fridge off and on. PROBLEM SOLUTION The fridge is not able to connect to the wireless router. • Check if the wireless router supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. • Check the status of the Internet connection of the wireless router. • Check if other devices (Notebook PC, Smart phone etc.) can access the wireless router. If the wireless router can not be accessed by the other devices, the wireless router is probably the problem. • Please contact with wireless router manufacturer and Internet service provider (ISP). Check if the current cost rate plan for the Internet covers the wireless network connection. If it does, check how many connections are allowed. • Your Refrigerator may not be able to connect to the Internet because your ISP has permanently registered the MAC address (a unique identifying number) of your PC or modem, which it then authenticates each time you connect to the Internet as a way of preventing unauthorized access. As your Refrigerator has a different MAC address, your ISP can not authenticate its MAC address, and your Refrigerator can not connect. To resolve this problem, ask your ISP about the procedures required to connect devices other than a PC (such as your Refrigerator) to the Internet. (To find the MAC address of your Fridge, touch Settings ---> Wi-Fi Networks, and then look on the bottom of the screen that lists the available network connections.) • Turn the power of both the Wireless router and the Fridge off and on.
