inside the fridge to see which refrigerant is used for the refrigerator.
CAUTION
When installing, servicing or cleaning behind the refrigerator, be
sure to pull the unit straight out and push back in straight after
finishing.
• In case of R600a refrigerant, this gas is natural gas with high environmental compatibility that is, however, also
combustible. When transporting and installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the
refrigerating circuit are damaged.
• Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes could ignite or cause an eye injury. If a leak is detected, avoid any naked flames
or potential sources of ignition and air the room in which the appliance is standing for several minutes.
WARNING
• In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas-air mixture if a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the size of the
room in which the appliance may be sited depends on the amount of refrigerant used.
• Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
• The room must be 1m3 in size for every 8g of R600a refrigerant inside the appliance.

6. Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
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?
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? Try moving
those items into the body of the fridge instead of keeping them in the CoolSelect Zone™
drawer.
You hear unusual noises or
sounds.
• 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.
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.
• 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.
