period of time below the cold end of the range of
temperatures for which the refrigerating appliance
is designed.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as bananas, melons.
Place the ice tray at the originally provided
posistion by manufacturer in order to achieve
optimal ice-freezing.
Your appliance is frost free, which means there is
no need to manually defrost your appliance, as
this will be carried out automatically.
Temperature rising during the defrost can comply
with ISO requirement.
But If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of the frozen food while defrosting
the appliance, please wrap the frozen food in
several layers of paper such as newspaper.
Any increase in temperature of frozen food during
defrosting can shorten its storage life.
SavingEnergyTips
- 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, back and top
when installing.
This will help reduce power consumption and
keep your energy bills lower.

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. In order for the icemaker to operate
properly, water pressure of 138 ~862 Kpa is
required. Under normal conditions, a 170 cc paper
cup can be filled in 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. 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.
4. After connecting the water supply to the water
filter, turn your main water supply back on and
dispense about 1l to clear and prime the water
filter.

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
