Safety Instructions in this
manual do not cover all
possible conditions and
situations that may occur.
It is your responsibility to use
common sense, caution,
and care when installing,
maintaining, and operating
your appliance.
•Because these following
operating instructions
cover various models, the
characteristics of your
refrigerator may differ slightly
from those described in this
manual. R-600a or R-134a is
used as a refrigerant. Check
the compressor label on the
rear of the appliance or the
rating label inside the fridge
to see which refrigerant is
used for your refrigerator.
When this product contains
flammable gas (Refrigerant
R-600a), contact your local
authority in regard to safe
disposal of this product.
•In order to avoid the
creation of a flammable gasair 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 1 m³ in size for every 8 g
of R-600a refrigerant inside
the appliance.
02_ safety information
DA68-02833A (EN)-09.indd 2
2014-01-04 오전 11:59:12
The amount of refrigerant in
your particular appliance is
shown on the identification
plate inside the appliance.
•Refrigerant squirting out of
the pipes could ignite or
cause an eye injury. When
refrigerant leaks from the
pipe, avoid any naked
flames and move anything
flammable away from the

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.
-- Allow clearance to the right,
left, back and 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

• Allow sufficient space to the right, left,
back and top for air circulation.
This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your energy
bills lower.
• Do not install the refrigerator where the
temperature will go below 10 °C.
• Please ensure that appliance can be moved
freely in the event of maintenance & service.
CAUTION
CAUTION
When installing, servicing, or cleaning
behind the refrigerator, be sure to pull the
unit straight out and push back in straight
after finishing.
Also, make sure your floor supports the
full-load refrigerator.
Otherwise, it may cause floor damage.
Please tie up the extra length of the power
cord at the back of the refrigerator so as
not to be touched on the floor preventing
the power cord from being crushed by the
rollers upon relocation.
• Pulling or pushing the refrigerator may
damage the floor.
Moving the refrigerator after installation
may damage the floor.
01setting up
• Remove paper on spacer and then
attach a spacer (Gray block) on the
back side of refrigerator for better
performance. Make sure a spacer
fix like above image when you install
the refrigerator. It is improving the
refrigerator performance.
(Only for RB31F***B, RB29F***B model)
For proper installation, this refrigerator must be
placed on a level surface of hard material that has
the same height as the rest of the flooring. This
surface should be strong enough to support a fully
loaded refrigerator (or approximately 65 kg). To
protect the floor finish, cut a large section of the
cardboard carton and place it under the refrigerator
where you are working.
LEVELLING THE REFRIGERATOR
If the front of the appliance is slightly higher than
the rear, the door can be opened and closed more
easily.
Case 1) The appliance tilts down to the left.
Turn the left adjusting leg in the direction of the
arrow until the appliance is level.
Case 2) The appliance tilts down to the right.

SETTING UP THE REFRIGERATOR
Now that you have your new refrigerator installed
and in place, you are ready to set up and enjoy the
full features and functions of the appliance.
By completing the following steps, your refrigerator
should be fully operational.
If not, first check the power supply and electricity
source or try the troubleshooting section at the
back of this user guide.
If you have any further questions, contact your
Samsung Electronics service center.
1. Place the refrigerator in an appropriate location
with reasonable clearance between the wall
and the refrigerator.
Refer to installation instructions in this manual.
2. Once the refrigerator is plugged in, make sure
the interior light comes on when you open the
doors.
3. Set the temperature control to the coldest
temperature and wait for an hour.
The freezer should get slightly chilled and the
motor should run smoothly.
4. After powering the refrigerator, it will take a few
hours to reach the appropriate temperature.

is too high.
•
•
•
•
The food in the
refrigerator is
frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the front panel set to the coldest temperature?
• Is the surrounding temperature too low?
There are unusual
noises.
•
•
•
•
•
The front corners
and sides of the
appliance are warm
and condensation
starts to form.
• Heat-proof pipes are installed in the front corners of the appliance to prevent
condensation from forming. When the surrounding temperature rises, this may not
always be effective. However, this is not abnormal.
• In very humid weather, condensation may form on the outer surface of the appliance
when the moisture in the air comes into contact with the cool surface of the appliance.
You can hear a
liquid bubbling in
the appliance.
• This is the refrigerant, which cools the inside of the appliance.
There is a bad
smell inside the
appliance.
• Is there any spoiled food inside of the refrigerator?
• Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it is airtight.
• Clean out your refrigerator periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food.
There is a layer
of frost on the
appliances walls.
• Are the air outlet vents blocked by food stored inside the refrigerator?
• Space the food out as much as possible to improve ventilation.
• Is the door fully closed?
Condensation
forms on the
inside wall of the
appliance and
around vegetables.
• Food with a high water content is stored uncovered with a high humidity level or the
door has been left open for a long time.
• Store the food with a cover or in sealed containers.
Check if the power plug is correctly connected.
Is the temperature control on the front panel correctly set?
Does sun shine on the appliance or are there any heat sources nearby?
