1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 20 ~125 psi is required.
In this range a 170 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 secs.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you should install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled initially. Push the water dis
penser lever until the water runs from the outlet.
