*Illustrations for MR-EX655W are used in explanations. Depending on the refrigerator model, the capacity, dimensions and
shape may differ, but usage is the same.
Troubleshooting
• Vegetables stay alive even after harvest. Being bathed in light, their nutrients are boosted up.
• There is almost no vegetable, fruit, drink or seasoning that cannot be preserved or
stored being exposed to light.
• The vegetable nutrients are increased even with a weak light, so packaging does not
need to be removed (except when the packaging completely blocks off the light).
• The vegetable nutrients are not increased forever. The preservation also depends
on the freshness at the time of purchase. Eat vegetables when they are as fresh as possible.
• Because the vegetable compartment has a high humidity, fogging or condensation may
form on the roof of the vegetable compartment or the bottom of the cases. Condensation
forming on the bottom may make the case dirty, so wipe it off with a dry cloth.
*The orange LED is equipped to the MR-EX655W only (not equipped to the MR-EX562W).

(about 80 to 140 ice cubes). To detect the ice storage level correctly,
make sure that the ice is flat and that the ice server is kept in its
storage position in the front right of the ice storage box.
Caution
• Do not pour anything other than cold
water into the water tank, such as warm
water, juice, tea, soft drinks, or other
liquids (the tank can
resist heat up to 60°C).
Pouring anything other than
cold water into the tank may
cause damage.
• Do not pour water directly into the ice
tray to make ice.
Unfrozen water in the ice tray may fall into the ice
storage box, and the ice may join not forming cubes.

number of ice cubes in one batch depend on various factors, such as the
amount of water in the water tank.
• If the ice is stored in the ice storage box for a long
time, the ice cubes may join together or shrink (due
to a phenomenon called sublimation).
Troubleshooting
The ice making time for a single batch is about 2 hours.
Cleaning
Carry the water tank with both hands and insert it
horizontally until it makes contact with the rear side.
Check that there are no foreign objects between
the tank holder and the water supply pipe area. It
may cause freezing.
How to check X Page 26

You can use supercool freezing even when other foods are still inside.
Supercool freezing cannot be performed during Power Save Mode or the freezing setting.
Even after supercool freezing has finished, the food may not be completely frozen. (With supercool freezing and SoftFreezing, food is frozen at about -7°C, so it takes about 24 hours for the food to freeze completely.)
When adding foods to be stored, refrain from opening the doors often.
Supercool freezing may not be possible or the degree of freezing or freezer burn may vary depending on the food type,
cooking method, storage arrangement (stacking, storage location), the amount of food, and the storage time.
Depending on how much sugar, salt, moisture, or fat the food contains, freezing may not be possible or the food may
harden when frozen (cannot be cut immediately with a kitchen knife).
If the food has frozen too hard, leave it for about 5 to 15 minutes at room temperature and you should be able to cut it
with a kitchen knife.

After supercool freezing finishes, the food is stored with Soft-Freezing. (Meat, fish, etc. can be stored for 2 to 3 weeks.)
• If you want to store the food for a long time, move it to the freezer compartment after supercool freezing has finished. (Meat,

containers
• When Soft-Freezing after freezing, or freezing after Soft-Freezing, use
the food within a short period of time (about 1 to 2 weeks).
• After supercool freezing has finished, if you want to store the food for
a long time, move it to the freezer compartment quickly.
• When fruit is thawed it does not return to its original condition. Eat
frozen fruit without thawing it.
• If fruit is stored for more than a week with Soft-Freezing, its taste may
change. To enjoy the fresh texture, we recommend eating within 2 to 3
days.
• It can be cut 2 to 5 hours after transferring from freezing to SoftFreezing.
• Avoid using aluminum foil or paper wrapping, because it interferes
with accurate measurement of the food temperature.
When storing food in sealed containers, fill food tightly as much as possible until the container is completely full.
Do not store in a glass container. It may break down.
