Saving Energy Tips
- 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 (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 time for which the door is open, the less
ice will form in the freezer.
- Clean the rear of the refrigerator regularly. Dust
increases energy consumption.
- Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
- Ensure sufficient air exhaust at the refrigerator base
and at the back wall of the refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent openings.
- Allow clearance to the right, left, back and top when
installing.
This will help reduce power consumption and keep
your energy bills lower.

CHECKING THE WATER
DISPENSER LINE (OPTIONAL)
- When ICE OFF blinks on the display panel,
reinsert the bucket and/or make sure it’s
installed properly.
- When the door is open, the Ice and water
dispenser do not work.
- If you close the door hard, it may cause
water spilling over the ice maker.
- To prevent dropping the ice bucket, use
both hands when removing it.
- To prevent injury, be sure to clean up any
ice or water that may have dropped on
the floor.
- Do not let children hang on the ice dispenser
or on the bucket.
They may get hurt.
- Be sure not to put your hand or any object
into the ice chute.
It may cause personal injury or damage
mechanical parts.
CAUTION
A water dispenser is just 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
will need to purchase a water purifying system to do
that. In order for the icemaker to operate properly,
water pressure of 138 ~862 Kpa is required. Under
normal conditions, a 170 cc paper cup can be filled
in 10 seconds. If the refrigerator is installed in an area
with low water pressure (below 138 Kpa), 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 included. You can
find it in one of the freezer drawers.

There is a bad smell in
the refrigerator.
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?
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? Try moving those items into the body of the fridge instead of keeping
them in the CoolSelect Zone™ drawer.
Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air
from circulating?
Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
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.
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.
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.
•
This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant liquid
circulating through the refrigerator.
•
•
Has a food item spoiled?
Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect
food.
•
Frost forms on the
walls of the freezer.
•
•
•
Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate freely.
Allow sufficient space between the foods stored for efficient air circulation.
Is the freezer door closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
•
•
Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
Has the water supply line tubing been crushed or kinked?
Make sure the tubing is free and clear of any obstruction.
Is the water tank frozen because the refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
