CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE (optional)
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 with unit. You can find it in freezer drawer.

Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C (8°F) and -25ºC (-14°F) to suit your particular
needs. Press the freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16ºC (4°F).
The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C (8°F) and -25ºC (-14°F). When the
display reaches -14ºC (8°F), it will begin again at -25ºC (-14°F).
Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current
freezer temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new
temperature.
The top and bottom guards in the freezer of this model are the two star sections, so the
temperature in two star sections are slightly higher than other freezer compartment.
Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7ºC (45°F) and 1ºC (34°F) to suit your particular
needs. Press the fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display.
The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process.
Press the fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will
begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.
The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too
frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side.
This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their
normal set temperatures the blinking will stop.
If the blinking continues, you may need to “reset” the refrigerator. Try unplugging the
appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

When the filter indicator light is on, it is time to change the filter. Typically this happens about
every 6 months.
After removing the old water filter and installing a new one (see page 18 for instructions on how
to do this), reset the indicator status light by pressing the IceType button for about 3 seconds.
The indicator will light again in about 6 months to let you know it is time to change your water
filter.
When you do not use the water filter, press the Ice Type button for more than 5 seconds, the
Filter indicator lamp and the Filter Change letters will be off.

Storing Food in the Freezer
The Samsung Side-By-Side Refrigerator has been designed to provide you with maximum
spacesaving features and functions. Here are some of the customized compartments we have
created to keep your food fresher, longer. Remember, in order to prevent odor penetration to the
ice, stored food should be wrapped securely and as airtight as possible.
To get more space, you can remove freezer drawer(s) except bottom freezer drawer and ice
trays(For RSA1S***, RSA1N*** and RSA1W*** models) since it does not affect thermal and

Cleaning the Interior
Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild detergent
and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. You can remove the drawers
and shelves for a more thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry
them before putting them back into place.
Cleaning the Exterior
Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean, soft cloth.
Spray water onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly
on the surface of the refrigerator. This helps ensure an even
distribution of moisture to the surface. The doors, handles and
cabinet surfaces should be cleaned with a mild detergent and
then wiped dry with a soft cloth. To keep your appliance looking
its best, the exterior should be polished once or twice a year.
Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox™ for cleaning.

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 Duo™ 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
and sides of the
appliance are hot
and condensation is
occurring.
Ice is not dispensing.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
• 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 storage unit?
• 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.
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.
