fridge to see which refrigerator is used for your refrigerator.
Do not install the refrigerator in a damp place or a place
where it may come in contact with water.
• Deteriorated insulation of electrical parts may cause an
electric shock or fire.
This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane
refrigerant (R600a), a natural gas with high environmental compatibility that is, however, also combustible. When transporting and installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang
on the shelves or doors in the refrigerator.
They could damage the refrigerator and seriously injure themsleves.
Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes could ignite or cause an
eye injury. If a leak is detected, avoid any naked flames or
potential sources of ignition and air the room in which the appliance is standing for several minutes.
• In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas-air 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.
The room must be 1m3 in size for every 8 g of R600a refrigerant
inside the appliance. The amount of refrigerant in your particular
appliance is shown on the identification plate inside the appliance.
• Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage. If in
doubt, consult your dealer.
The appliance is not intended for use by children or infirm
persons without supervision.

INITIAL OPERATING CONDITION
Once you have performed the following steps, your refrigerator should be fully operational. If not, check the power
supply and electricity source. If you have any questions, contact your SAMSUNG service center.
Place the refigerator in an appropriate location
with reasonable clearance between the wall and
the refigerator.
(refer to installation instructions in this mannal)
When the refrigerator is plugged in, the interior
light should come on when you open the doors.
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.
Once the refrigerator temperature is sufficiently
low, you can store food in the refrigerator. After
starting the refrigerator, it takes a few hours to
reach the appropriate temperature.
Twin Cooling System
• The refrigerator and the freezer have two evapora
tors. Given this independent system, the freezer
and the refrigerator are cooled individually as
required and are, therefore, more efficient. Food
odor from the refrigerator does not affect food in
the freezer due to separate air flow circulation.
Multi-Flow System
• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every
shelf level. This provides even distribution of
cooling inside cabinets to keep your food fresh
longer.
Door Alarm
• A beeper reminds you if the door is left open.
Beverage Station (optional)
• You do not have to open the main door to access
frequently used food in the extra refrigerating compartment. This saves time and money.
Deodorizer
• Reusable deodorizer keeps the refrigerator air
fresh and odor free.
CoolSelect
ZoneTM Drawer
(optional)
• User can select
Soft Freeze, 0 Zone,
Quick Cool, Cool,
Thaw items.
High humidity for fresher food
• You can keep food, fruit and vegetables fresh for
longer because your refrigerator supplies highly
humidified cold air. This can be up to four or five
times more effective than a normal refrigerator.
Energy-saving fridge/freezer
• Power consumption is kept to a minimum by distributing cool air separately to the refrigerator and
freezer.
Faster cooling times
• The power freeze function allow you to freeze food
more quickly.
Abundant supply of ice and cold water
• The ice and water dispenser provides ice and cold
water at any time.

Using the dispenser without the water filter
• You can not use the water and ice dispenser without a water filter cartridge because of the water
line block at the water supply.
Ordering replacement filters
• To order more water filter cartridges, contact your authorized Samsung dealer or SVC agent.
DOORS
The refrigerator doors have a special door opening and closing feature to make sure that the doors
close all the way and are securely sealed.
When opening the door, it will remain open only after reaching a certain point.
When the door is partially open, it will close automatically .

INSTALLATION OF THE REFRIGERATOR
Checking the Dimensions of your Entrance Door
• Check the dimensions of your entrance door to determine whether the refrigerator can
pass through it.
•
Moving refrigerator through door if depth or width of refrigerator is bigger than door’s,
NOTE
removes refrigerator doors.
Selecting the Location for the Refrigerator
• Select a location with easy access to the water supply.
• Select a location with enough space for the refrigerator.
• Select a location without direct exposure to sunlight.
CAUTION
• Before disassembling the freezer door, the water supply line needs to be disconnected.
(If not, the water supply line can be damaged.)
• See “Separating the water supply line from the refrigerator” on the next page.
Allow sufficient space to install the refrigerator on a flat surface.
• If your refrigerator is not level, the internal cooling system may not work correctly.
NOTE
To get the maximum energy efficiency, you had better give
enough clearance of the back side.
To get more space remove the upper box in the freezer and all
boxes in the fresh food compartment since it does not effect
satisfactory thermal and mechanical characteristics.
CAUTION
• Be careful when you open the door in full
swing. It might come in contact with its adjacent units.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE (OPTIONAL)
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 1.4 ~ 10 kgf/cm2 (0.14 ~ 9.8Mpa,
19.9 ~ 142.2 psi, 1.37 ~ 9.8 bars) is required.
In this range a 100 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 1.4kgf/cm2 , 0.14 Mpa,
19.9 psi,1.37bars), you should install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled initially. Push the water dis
penser lever until the water runs from the outlet.
NOTE
A universal water supply kit is available at extra cost from your dealer. The refrigerator manufacturer
recommends using a water supply kit containing copper tubing.
