CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 20~125 psi(0.138~0.862 Mpa) is
required. In this range, a 6 oz paper cup can be filled in 10 secs.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you should install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is filled. Push the water dispenser
lever until the water runs from the outlet.
NOTE
Water line installation kit is available at extra cost from your dealer. The refrigerator
manufacturer recommends using a water supply kit containing copper tubing.
Connecting to water supply line
1. Cold Water line.
2. Pipe Clamp.
3. Water Line Installation Kit.
4. Shut Off Valve.
- Shut off the main water supply line and turn the
Ice maker to the off position.
- Locate the nearest cold water line.
- Follow the instructions in the ice maker
installation kit.
- After connecting the water supply with water
filter, turn on water supply and flush 4 or more
gallons into a bucket to clear the water filter.

INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
Before You Install the water line
• This water line installation is not warranted by Samsung.
Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage.
• Banging pipes (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts
and lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to correct the problem before installing
the water supply line to the refrigerator.
• To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook up the water line to the hot water line.
• If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line, make sure the”Ice Type” is set to the ICE
OFF position.
• Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.
• When using any electrical device (such as a power drill) during installation, be sure the device is insulated or wired in a manner to prevent electric shock.
• All installations must be in a accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
Connect the water tube to the refrigerator.
1) Slip the compression nut through the provided
plastic tubing.

Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray.
1) To remove : Set the "Ice Type" switch to the Ice off position. Lift
up (①) and pull out (➁) the icemaker bucket in the freezer.
To replace : When replacing the drawer, be sure to press it
firmly into place. If it does not go all the way back, remove it
and rotate the drive mechanism 1/4 turn. Then push the drawer
back again.

2) Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water line to
clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will

Do not add ice from trays or bags to the
storage bin. It may not crush or dispense
well.

Feeler Arm
can jam the chute or cause the door in the
chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the
chute, poke it through with a wooden spoon.
Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser
opening.
Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you selected CUBES. This happens occasionally
when a few cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip from the chute.
4) Water Supply to the Icemaker :
The icemaker must be connected to a cold water line.
5) Start the Icemaker :
Set the "Ice Type" to the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position. The icemaker will not begin to operate
until it reachs its operating temperature of 10.4°F( -12°C) or below. It will then begin operation automatically if the "Ice Type" is in the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position.
NOTE
• If there is no water supply, turn off the icemaker to save energy.
• In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to make sure enough
water reaches the icemaker.
