For proper installation, this refrigerator must be placed on a level
surface of hard material that is the same height as the rest of the
flooring. This surface should be strong enough to support a fully
loaded refrigerator, or approximately 2231bs(106kg). To protect
the finish of the flooring, cut a large section of the cardboard
carton and place under the refrigerator where you are working.
When moving the refrigerator, be sure to pull it straight out and
return it to position by pushing it straight in.

STORING FOOD IN THE REFRIGERATOR
The Samsung
Refrigerator
has been designed
to provide you with maximum
space saving features and
functions. Here are some of the customized compartments
we have created to keep your food fresher longer. In
order to further prevent odor from seeping into the ice compartment,
stored food should be wrapped securely
and as airtight as possible.
Can be used to store small dairy items like butter or margarine, yogurt
or cream cheese bricks
butter/cheese
Designed to handle large, bulky items such as gallons of milk or other
large bottles and containers.
Designed to be crack-resistant, the shelves can be used to store all
types of food and drinks. Circular marks on the glass surface are a
normal phenomenon and can usually be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Used for preserving the freshness of your stored vegetables and fruits.
This drawer has been specifically designed to control the level of
humidity within the compartment. Keep vegetables and fruits separate
when possible.
®
Do not place any large articles of food under the lamp in the Refrigerator. An air sensor is located
near the lamp and if the sensor is blocked, your Refrigerator may become too cold. Please place
Vegetable and Fruits in the Vegetable and Fruits Drawers to avoid freezing them. If the food in
your Refrigerator becomes frozen, please set the temperature higher.
STORING FOOD IN THE FREEZER DRAWER
Best used to store meats or dry foods. Stored food should be placed
in a container or wrapped securely using plastic wrap or other suitable
wrapping materials.

CLEANING THE REFRIGERATOR
Caring for your Samsung Refrigerator prolongs the life of your appliance and helps
keep it odor and germ-free.
Cleaning the Interior
Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild detergent
and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. You can remove the drawers
and shelves for a more thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry
drawers and shelves before putting them back into place.
Cleaning the Exterior
Wipe the display panel with damp, clean, soft cloth. Do not spray
water directly on the surface of the Refrigerator.
The doors, handles and cabinet surfaces should be cleaned with a
mild detergent and then wiped dry with a soft cloth. To keep your
appliance looking its best, the exterior should be polished once or
twice a year.
Do not use Benzene, Thinner, car detergent, or Clorox for cleaning.
CAUTIONThey may damage the surface of the appliance and may cause fire.
Cleaning the Rubber door seals
If the rubber door seals are dirty, the doors may not close properly,
and the Refrigerator will not operate efficiently. Keep the door seals
free of grit or grime by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and
damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Cleaning behind the Refrigerator
To keep cords and exposed parts free of dust and dirt accumulation,
vacuum behind the appliance once or twice a year.
Z_
Do not remove the back cover. Doing so may cause an electric shock.

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 so close to the wall that air cannot keep circulating?
(Refer to page 10 for the best location.)
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 too close to the air vent at the back of the Refrigerator? Move the
food away from the air vent.
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. It is normal and occurs because
various accessories are contracting or expanding according to the temperature of the
Refrigerator interior.
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.
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.
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?
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.
