13. Safety Instructions on Service
●Unplug the refrigerator before making any repair or any replacement.
Avoid the electric shock.
●Use the rated components on the replacement.
Check the correct model number, rated voltage, rated current, operating temperature and so
on.
●On repair, be sure that the wires such as harness are bundled tightly and are not exposed by
water.
Bundle wires tightly in order not to be detached by the external force.
●On repair, remove completely dust, particles or other things on housing parts, harness parts,
and connectors.
Cleaning may prevent fire by tracking or short.
●Check if there is any trace indicating the infitration of water on electrical parts.
If there is a trace, change the related components or do the necessary action
such as taping using the insulating tape.
●After repair, check the assembled state of parts.
It must be the same assembled state as before.
●Check the surrounding conditions of the installed refrigerator.
When the refrigerator is located at humid or wet place, or the installed state is
unstable, change the location.
●If needed, do the ground.
Especially, if there is a possibility of the electric leakage, this appliance must be
properly grounded.
●Do not allow consumers to use one outlet for several plugs.
●Check if the power cord is placed under other appliance and so was damaged, worm-out and
squeezed.
Repair defective power plug or outlet immediately.
Make sure that the power cord is not placed under other appliance or squeezed.
●Do not allow consumers to keep bottles or the likes in the Freezer or to keep foods in unstable
position.
●Do not allow consumers to repair the appliance by themselves.
●Do not allow consumers to keep other chemicals except food.
