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, back and top
when installing.

Whenever all ice is used at one time, the
above step 3 and 4 must be repeated
(before dispense the first 4 to 6 ice cubes, it
needs waiting 8 hours).
This will replenish the ice cubes and ensure
maximum ice production.
When you dump the ice from the ice bucket, you
should press the dispenser lever once with ‘ICE
CUBED’ or ‘CRUSHED’ function ON to get new
ice faster after replacing the ice bucket in the
refrigerator.
Using the water dispenser
Place a glass underneath the water outlet and
push gently against the water dispenser lever with
your glass. Make sure the glass is in line with the
dispenser to prevent the water from splashing out.
If you have just installed the refrigerator or installed
a new water filter,Flush 3L through filter before use
(flush approximately 6 minutes). Make sure that
water flows clearly again before drinking.
If you have a long vacation or business trip,
close the water valve and shut off the water
supply to the Refrigerator. This will help prevent
accidental leakages. Do not disassemble the
Ice-maker personally. It may cause disorder. Do
not wash or spray the ice bucket with water. Just
wipe it with a dry cloth. In order to operate the
ice-maker properly, water pressure of 138~862
Kpa is required.
Water clouding phenomenon
All water provided to refrigerators flows through
the core filter which is an alkaline water filter. In
this process, the pressure in the water that has
flowed out of the filter gets increased, and oxygen
and nitrogen become saturated. When this water
flows out in the air, the pressure plummets and
the oxygen and nitrogen get supersaturated so
that they turn into gas bubbles. The water could
look misty due to these oxygen bubbles.The
water may look temporarily cloudy due to these
oxygen bubbles. After a few seconds, the water
will look clear.
Please wait 1 second before removing the cup
after dispensing water to prevent spills. Do not
pull out the lever dispenser after taking out ice or
water. It comes back automatically. Ice is made
in cubes.
When you select “Crushed”, the ice-maker grinds
the ice cubes into crushed ice.
PARTS AND FEATURES
Use this page to become more familiar with the
parts and features of the Refrigerator.
When you do not use the water dispenser
for 2~3 days (especially during the summer),
the dispensed water may have a funny smell or
taste. If this occurs, we recommend that you
discard the first 1~2 glasses for better tasting
water.
Using the ice off function
When selecting
the Ice Off mode,

from the bucket. If
you are not using
Push
Pull on
the ice dispenser,
the ice cubes may clump together. Pull the lock

Troubleshooting
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 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
Refrigerator is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room too low?
• Did you store the food with high water content in the coldest part of the
Refrigerator? Try moving those items into the body of the Refrigerator
instead of keeping them in the Cool Select Pantry™.
You hear unusual noise • Check that the Refrigerator is level and stable.
or sounds.
• 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. It is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding
according to the temperature of the Refrigerator interior.
The front corners and
vertical hinged section
of the appliance are
hot and condensation
is occurring.
Ice-maker is not
producing ice.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
Refrigerator.
• 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.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the Refrigerator coolant liquid
circulating through the Refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
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.
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 drawer closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
• 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 Refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
