01 SETTING UP
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.
Only connect the water line to a drinkable
water source.
If you have to repair or disassemble the water line,
cut off 6.5mm of the plastic tubing to make sure you
get a snug, leak-free connection.
CAUTION
Before being used, the leakage in these
places should be examined
• Samsung Warranty does not cover WATER LINE
INSTALLATION.
• It’ll be done at customer’s charge unless the retail
price includes installation cost.
• Please contact Plumber or Authorized Installer for
the installation if needed.
• If Water leakage occurs due to improper
installation, Please contact installer.
Removing any residual matter inside
the water supply line after installing
filter.
1. Turn ON the main water supply.
2. Press the Water button and
push the dispenser pad.
3. Run water through the
dispenser until the water
runs clear (approx. 3L). This
will clean the water supply
system and remove air from
the lines.
4. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.
5. Open the refrigerator door
and make sure there are no
water leaks coming from the water filter.

(month indicator)
Turn until the
label aligned.
4. Once you have completed this process, hold the
Ice Off button simultaneously for 3 seconds to
reset the filter schedule.
USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND WATER FILTERS.
SAMSUNG will not be legally responsible for any
damage, including, but not limited to property
damage caused by water leakage from use of a
generic water filter.
SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work
ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filter.
The “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is
time to change your water filter cartridge.
To give you preparation time to get a new filter, the
red light will come 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 fridge.
1. Remove the water filter from the box and
put a month indicator sticker on the filter
as shown. Place a sticker on the filter
that dates six months in the future. For
example, if you are replacing the water
filter in March, put the “SEP” (September)
sticker on the filter to remind you to
replace in September. Normal filter life is
about every 6 months.
2. Remove the new filter’s protective cap and remove
the old filter.
3. Position and insert the new filter into the filter
housing. Slowly turn the water filter clockwise to
align with the printing mark on the cover, locking
the filter in position. Make sure to align the water
filter label mark with the center of cover filter
printing as illustrated. Remember, do not overtighten.

5. Lastly, run about 3L of water through water
dispenser and throw away. Make sure that water
flows clearly again before drinking.
6. See installing the water filter instructions page 11.
A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause
water to briefly spurt from the water dispenser. This
is due to air getting into the line. It should pose no
problem to operation.
Ordering replacement filters
To order more water filter cartridges, contact your
authorized Samsung dealer.
USING THE DOORS
The refrigerator doors are equipped with a door
opening and closing feature that ensures that the
doors close all the way and are securely sealed.
After opening beyond a certain point, the door will
“catch” and remain open. When the door is ajar
ahead of the catch that allows it to stay open, it will
close automatically.

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?
• 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.
• 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.
• 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 maker bucket?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature
lower.
