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, top when installing.
This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your
energy bills lower.
-- For the most efficient use
of energy, please keep the
all inner fittings such as
baskets, drawers, shelves
on the position supplied by
manufacturer.
This appliance is intended
to be used in household and
similar applications such as
-- staff kitchen areas in shops,
offices and other working
environments;
-- farm houses and by
clients in hotels, motels
and other residential type
environments;
-- bed and breakfast type
environments;
-- catering and similar nonretail applications.

setting up
A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful
features on your new refrigerator.
To help promote better health, the water filter
removes unwanted particles from your water.
However, it does not sterilize or destroy
microorganisms.
You may need to purchase a water purifying
system to do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate properly, a
water pressure of 138 ~ 862 kPa is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) cup
can be filled in about 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.
After you have connected the water line, 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.
1. First, shut off the main water supply line.
2. Locate the nearest cold, drinking water line.
3. Follow the Water line Installation Instructions in
the installation kit.

Installing a SodaStream 60 L CO2 Carbonator
To use the Sparkling Water feature on your refrigerator, you need to install a Sodastream 60 L CO2
Carbonator.
You can pick up the SodaStream 60 L CO2 Carbonator at retailer near you and your first Sodastream
CO2 Carbonator is free. (For further information, please visit “www.sodastream.com/samsung”)
• Purchase SodaStream 60 L Carbonators at the nearest Sodastream retailer or on line.
Visit www.sodastream.com for more information.
• USE ONLY SODASTREAM 60 L CARBONATORS. SAMSUNG and SODASTREAM are not
legally responsible for any damage, including, but not limited to, property damage caused by gas
leakage from the use of generic carbonators (or CO2 cylinders). The sparkling water system in your
SAMSUNG refrigerator is designed to work ONLY WITH SODASTREAM 60 L CARBONATORS.
• We suggest buying extra Carbonators for later use.
Store extra Carbonators in a cool, open space, well out of the reach of children.
Do not store Carbonators in the refrigerator.
setting up
Purchasing SodaStream 60 L CO2 Carbonators
If sparkling water is produced when the internal refrigerator temperature or the temperature of
the CO2 cylinder is high, you may hear a “horn sound”.
When you turn on your refrigerator for the first time, you should not generate sparkling water
production until after approximately 2 hours.
When you purchase a new CO2 cylinder, be sure to store it in a cool dry place until you are ready
to install it (23 ~ 68 °F (-5 ~ 20 °C)).
If the cylinder is stored in higher temperatures, it may build up extra internal pressure, which
could create a “horn sound” when sparkling water is produced.
Water Line Hookup
• Make sure that you have connected the refrigerator to a water line before installing the cylinder.

operating
USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND
WATER FILTERS.
SAMSUNG is not legally responsible
for any damage, including, but not
limited to, property damage caused
(Red)
by water leakage from the use of a
generic water filter.
SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work
ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filters.
The Filter light turns red to let you know when it is
time to change your water filter cartridge.
To give you time to get a new filter, the red light
comes on just before the capacity of the current
filter runs out.
Changing the filter on time provides you with the
freshest, cleanest water from your refrigerator.
1. Shut off the water supply.
Then, turn the water filter ( 1 ) about 1/4 turn,
counter-clockwise.
2. Pull the water filter ( 1 ) from the case filter ( 2 ).
• To change the water filter more easily,
shut off the water supply valve.
• Sometimes, it is hard to disassemble the water
filter because impurities in the water cause it
to stick.
If you are having difficulties, grip the water filter
firmly and pull it hard.
• When you pull the water filter, a little water can
leak from the opening.
This is normal.
To minimize the water leaks, keep the filter
cartridge horizontal when you pull it.
• To prevent overflow, empty the water filter tray
( 3 ) and dry around the filter case ( 2 ).

Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT:
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the
reverse osmosis system is blocked.
Replace the filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill after heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when used
in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.
Remove the water filter.
Basic temperature of Freezer and
fridge compartments
The basic and recommended temperatures of the
Freezer and Fridge compartments are -19 °C and
3 °C respectively.
If the temperature of the Freezer and Fridge
compartments are too high or low, adjust the
temperature manually.
operating
The pressure of the water supply coming out of a
reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet
valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 35
and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to
be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):

When you select “Crushed”, the ice maker
grinds the ice cubes into crushed ice.
• When you select Cubed Ice after using the
Crushed Ice mode, a small amount of residual
crushed ice might be produced.
• The ice cubes generated by the rapid ice
making process will look white, which indicates
they were generated normally.
• As the ice maker in the refrigerator room
makes ice cubes even faster, move the ice
cubes from the refrigerator ice bin to the
freezer ice bin if you need more ice cubes.
• If ice doesn’t come out, pull out the ice bucket
and press the test button located on the right
side of ice maker.
See the illustration below.

CAUTION
CAUTION
Note that the ice cubes in the ice bucket
may spill out over the drawer when you
remove the ice bucket from the drawer.
If this occurs, be sure to clear the ice
cubes that spilled out of the drawer.
If a power failure occurs, ice cubes may
melt, and then freeze together when
the power comes back on, causing the
dispenser to stop working.
Using the Ice Off Function
When you select the Ice Off mode, remove all ice
cubes from the bucket.
If you leave the ice cubes in the bucket, the ice
cubes may clump together, making it difficult to
remove them.
To remove the ice bucket, push the button on
the upper right of the bucket (1 in the illustration
above), lift up the bottom, and then pull out.
To put the bucket back in, push the bucket
straight back until you hear a click.
If the bucket does not fit, turn the helix 90 degree
(see the last illustration on the right, above)and try
again.
CAUTION
To prevent this problem, after a power failure, pull
out the ice bucket and discard the residual ice or
water.
If you use all the ice at once, you must
repeat ice making Steps 2 and 3, left.
However, only wait 8 hours before
dispensing the first 4 to 6 ice cubes.
This will replenish the ice cubes and
ensure maximum ice production.
• Use only the ice maker provided with
the refrigerator.
• Have a suitably qualified person install
and connect the water supply line to the
refrigerator.
• Connect the water supply line to a
potable water supply only.
• To operate the ice maker properly, water
pressure of 20 ~ 125 psi is required.
Going on vacation...

Ice Maker Do’s and Don’ts
CAUTION
operating
• Do not put your fingers, hands or any other
unsuitable objects in the chute or ice-maker
bucket
-- It may result in personal injury or material
damage.
• Never put your finger or any other objects in
the dispenser opening.
-- It may cause injury.
• Do not try to disassemble the ice maker.
• Do not wash or spray the ice bucket with
water while it is in the refrigerator.
Remove it to clean it
When you insert the Ice maker tray, be
sure that the tray is well centered at the
entrance.
Otherwise, the tray may get stuck.
Water clouding phenomenon
All water provided to the refrigerator flows
through the core filter which is an alkaline
water filter.
In the filtering process, the pressure of
the water that has flowed out of the filter
is increased, and the water becomes
saturated with oxygen and nitrogen.
When this water flows out into the air, the
pressure plummets and the oxygen and
nitrogen get supersaturated, which results
in gas bubbles.
The water may temporarily look misty or
cloudy due to these oxygen bubbles.
After a few seconds, the water will look
clear.

Using the Sparkling Water Function
With a Sodastream CO2 cylinder installed, your refrigerator can make and dispense sparkling
(carbonated) water.
Making Sparkling Water
Press and hold the Quick Sparkling button for 3 seconds to activate the Fill Up.
If the Sparkling Water function is deactivated, press and hold the Sparkling Water or Quick Sparkling
button for 3 seconds to reactivate it.
When you turn on the function, the Carbonation Level icons light up in rotation (Level-1 → Level-2 →
Level-3 → Level-1, etc.) and, within a few seconds, the refrigerator begins to make sparkling water.
When production is complete, the Carbonation Level icon rotation stops.
If you leave the Sparkling Water Production function on, and the amount of Sparkling Water becomes
low, the refrigerator automatically enters the Sparkling Water production mode and makes more.
However, if you turn off the Sparkling Water Production function, the refrigerator will not make additional
sparkling water, even if there is little sparkling water left in the Sparkling Water tank.

Dispensing Sparkling Water
To dispense sparkling water, press the Sparkling Water button. Then, push the Ice/Sparkling Water lever
gently with a glass. As time passes, the sparkling water dispensing speed can change.
When the water tastes strongly carbonated, the dispensing speed can be faster.
When the carbonation is weaker, the dispensing speed can slow.
The dissolved CO2 in the sparkling water can also cause the water to pop out when you dispense it.
In addition, due to the pressure fluctuations in the Sparkling Water Tank, the water stream may shake or
become intermittent.
If you keep dispensing sparking water, the water stream may become unstable or break up.
This is caused by changes in pressure in the Sparkling Water Tank. It is not a defect.
English - 42
DA68-03022B (EN)-03.indd 42
14. 5. 15. �� 3:43
Water Dripping
Some time after you have dispensed sparkling water, a few drops of sparkling water can escape from
the dispenser. The water dripping is not a product defect, but a natural result of mixing CO2 and water.
Controlling the Carbonation Level
-- If there is previously produced sparkling water inside the Sparkling Water tank, the refrigerator
dispenses sparkling water with the previous carbonation level.
(Again, changes in the carbonation level do not take affect until the next time the refrigerator makes
sparkling water. The change does not affect sparkling water that is already made.)
-- While the refrigerator is producing sparkling water, the Sparkling Level icons light up in rotation
(Level-1 → Level-2 → Level-3 → Level-1, etc.).
If you press the Sparkling Water button when the refrigerator is making sparkling water, the current
carbonation level is displayed for several seconds.
If you press the Sparkling Water button again while the carbonation level is being displayed, the
carbonation level changes. The change in the carbonation level will take affect the next time the
refrigerator makes sparkling water.
-- If you change the carbonation level when the refrigerator is making sparkling water, the refrigerator
produces sparkling water at the previous carbonation level.
operating
When the Sparkling Water Icon is turned on, you can change the sparkling water’s carbonation level by
pressing the Sparkling Water button for 3 seconds.
Each time you press the Spakling Water button, the carbonation level changes as follows:
Medium (Level-2) → Strong (Level-3) → Weak (Level-1) → Medium (Level-2).
As you press the button, the small numbers on the right side of the button light up in succession,
indicating the level change.
The Sparkling Level is set to Level 2 at the factory.
If the sparkling water tastes too strong or too weak, change the carbonation level.
Level 1 provides a milder carbonation, Level 3 a stronger carbonation.
• If there is a power interruption when the refrigerator is making sparkling water, the refrigerator may
re-start the carbonation process when power returns and put too much carbonation into the water.
If this occurs, we recommend throwing out the overly carbonated water and starting the process
again.
• The lifetime of the CO2 cylinder can vary, depending on the Sparkling Levels you choose.

REPLACING A SODASTREAM
CARBONATOR
If the carbonation level is abnormally low, this
means the CO2 cylinder is empty.
In this case, we recommend that you replace the
cylinder with a new one.
To replace a cylinder, follow these steps:
Purchase SodaStream 60 L Carbonators at the
nearest Sodastream retailer or on line.
Visit www.sodastream.com for more information.
1. Lift up the Lever holding the cylinder
in place.
2. Pull the Cylinder out of the Support.
Do not remove the divider.
If trapped inside, children may be injured
or suffocate to death.
3. Rotate the Cylinder
counterclockwise to remove it from
the Regulator.
4. To install the new cylinder, follow the directions for
installing a cylinder starting at Step 2.
5. Press and hold the Quick Sparkling button for 3
seconds to activate the Fill Up.
If the Sparkling Water function is deactivated, press
and hold the Sparkling Water or Quick Sparkling
button for 3 seconds to reactivate it.
• If you replace the CO2 Cylinder during Sparkling
Water Production (The Carbonation Level Icon turns
on in the order of 1 → 2 → 3 → 1.), wait until the
refrigerator completes production before turning
the Sparkling Water Production function back on.
Because you interrupted production, the sparkling
water may be over carbonated. We recommend that
you throw out the overly carbonated water.

Sparkling Water: Operational Notes
CAUTION
• Be sure to use genuine SodaStream Cylinders
from authorized resellers.
1. Press the Sparkling Water button for three
seconds to turn off the Sparkling Water
function.
2. Empty the Sparkling Water tank by dispensing
all the water in the tank.
3. Remove the SodaStream Carbonator
operating
• The refrigerator starts making sparkling water
about 10 seconds after you turn on the
Sparkling Water Production function.
• If you open the refrigerator door while the
refrigerator is making sparkling water, it will
stop. When you close the door, it will resume
making sparkling water in about a minute.
• If there is a power interruption when the
refrigerator is making sparkling water, the
refrigerator may re-start the carbonation
process when power returns and put too
much carbonation into the water.
If this occurs, we recommend throwing out
the overly carbonated water and starting the
process again.
• If you keep dispensing sparkling water, the
water stream may become unstable or break
up.
This is caused by changes in pressure in the
Sparkling Water Tank. It is not a defect.
• If the water hose is kinked or water is not
supplied properly, the Carbonation Level of the
Sparkling Water will be high.
This occurs because the the same amount of
the carbon dioxide (CO2) is dispensed by the
Cylinder regardless of the amount of water in
the Production Tank.
• The useful life of a SodaStream carbonator will
vary, depending on the level of carbonation
you select.
• If the Sparkling Water function is on and you
dispense about 1.1 L of sparkling water, the
refrigerator automatically begins making more
sparkling water.
• If you are not going to be home for a long
period of time, do not want to use the
Sparkling Water function any more, or you are
moving :
• Please remove the SodaStream
Carbonator from the compartment
located in the left door of the refrigerator
before you transport the refrigerator.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The refrigerator
does not work
at all or it
does not chill
sufficiently.
• Check if the power plug is properly connected.
• Check if the set temperature on the digital display is warmer than the freezer
or fridge inner temperature. If it is, set the refrigerator colder.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper
ventilation?
The food in the
fridge is frozen.
• Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low.
• Try setting the refrigerator to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the too low?
Set the refrigerator warmer.
• Did you store with a high moisture content in the coldest part of the
refrigerator?
Try moving those items to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping
them in the colder areas or bins.
You hear
unusual noise
or sounds.
• Check if the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper
ventilation?
Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 2 inches from the wall.
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• If you hear a “ticking” sound from inside the refrigerator, this is normal.
It occurs because various parts contract or expand in response to
temperature changes in the refrigerator interior.
• If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator,
this is normal.
The sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity.
The cabinetdoor sealing
area of the
appliance
is hot and
condensation is
occurring.
Ice Maker is not
producing ice.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical
hinged section 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 opened?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm?
Try setting the freezer temperature lower.

14. 5. 15. �� 3:44
PROBLEM
You can
hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
Frost forms on
the walls of the
freezer.
• This is normal.
The bubbling comes from refrigerant circulating through the refrigerator.
• Check for spoiled food.
• Foods with strong odors (for example, fish) should be tightly covered.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or
suspicious food.
• Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the stored foods for efficient air circulation.
• Is the freezer drawer closed properly?
Water
dispenser is not
functioning.
•
•
•
•
Auto close
system does
not work with
the freezer
door.
• Is there an imbalance between the right and left parts of the door?
• Open and close the door smoothly 1~2 times.
After you do this, the auto close system usually works properly again.
• Try opening the door smoothly to avoid unbalancing the right part and the
left part of the door.
Sparkling
water is not
dispensed.
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened?
• Is the Sparkling water icon selected?
• Is the Sparkling Water Production Function Off icon on?
Press the Sparkling Water button for 3 seconds to turn on sparkling water
production.
The Sparkling Water Production function is set to OFF at the factory.
Set it ON to get sparkling water.
• Is the sparkling water icon blinking?
If the sparkling water icon is blinking, the refrigerator is in the middle of
producing sparkling water.
Please wait until the icon stops blinking.
• Is the Sparkling Water Cylinder empty?
If the SodaStream Carbonator rus out of CO2, water might not be
dispensed or the dispensed water might be weak.
Please change the cylinder.
• Is the refrigerator door open?
If the door is open, Sparkling water/Water/Ice are not dispensed.
• Is the cylinder lever unlocked?
Please open the cylinder cover and lock the cylinder lever.
• Is the Control Lock on?
Troubleshooting
There is a bad
smell in the
refrigerator.
SOLUTION
Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened?
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 fridge temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the Digital display.
• Is the Control Lock on?

14. 5. 15. �� 3:44
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The Quick
Making
option makes
a whirling
noise while in
process.
• While the Quick Making option is active, the cylinder cycles through
injecting and discharging the CO2 gas, which can make such a noise.
The taste of the
sparkling water
is weak.
Condensation
or water drops
forms on both
sides of fridge
door’s central
part.
• Increase the Sparkling Level of the sparkling water.
• When the taste of the sparkling water is too weak or there is no other taste
than water, replace the SodaStream Carbonator with a new one.
• If you use the Fill Up (3 sec) option after replacing the cylinder, the sparkling
water tastes stronger or weaker than normal, depending on the amount and
concentration of the remaining gas in the water tank.
• Condensation or water drops may form if the humidity is too high while the
refrigerator is operating.
• If condensation or water drops appears on both sides of fridge
door’s central part, turn the Energy Saver mode off after removing the
condensation.
