ADJUSTING THE LEVEL
MAKING MINOR ADJUSTMENTS
BETWEEN DOORS
Remember, a leveled refrigerator is necessary for
getting the doors perfectly even. If you need help,
review the previous section on leveling the refrigerator.
Make sure the refrigerator is level so that you can
make final adjustments. Use a level to test if the
refrigerator is level both side to side and back to front.
If the refrigerator is not level, it will not be possible
to get the doors perfectly even, which may cause
moisture condensation and increased energy bills.
Below is an example of how to level the refrigerator if
the left side of the refrigerator is lower than the right
side.
How to adjust the level
1. Open the freezer drawer
and remove the lower
basket. (See to page 7)
2. Remove the two screws
( 1 ) attached to the cover
leg front ( 2 ) with a Philips
screwdriver (+).

4. Insert a flat-blade screwdriver (-) into a notch on the
left control lever, and turn it count clockwise to level
the refrigerator. (You turn the lever clockwise to lower
the refrigerator and counterclockwise to raise it.)
1. Pull out the freezer drawer ( 1 ), then you can see
the lower hinge ( 2 ).
2. Insert the supplied allen wrench(3/16”) ( 3 ) into the
shaft ( 4 ) of the lower hinge.

Control Lever
Both control levers must be touching the floor
to avoid possible personal injury or property
damage because of tipping.
1. After adjusting the doors, insert the supplied
fastener ( 6 ) using a pliers ( 5 ) in the gap between
the hinge-grommet ( 7 ) and the lower hinge
( 8 ). The number of fasteners you’ll need to insert
depends on the gap.
If the right side is lower, perform the same
procedure, but with the right control lever.
It is difficult to remove the cover leg front from the
refrigerator, so we do not recommend making
small adjustments with the control lever. Instead,
refer to the next page for the best way to make
minor adjustments to the doors.

Freezer Drawer
A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful
features on your new refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the water filter removes unwanted
particles from your water. However, it does not
sterilize or destroy microorganisms. You may need to
purchase a water purifying system to do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate properly, a water
pressure of 20~125 psi (138~862 kPa) is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) cup can
be filled in about 10 seconds.
If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water
pressure (below 20psi), you can install a booster pump
to compensate for the low pressure.
After you have connected the water line, 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.

Push the bucket back until you hear a click.
All water provided to the refrigerator flows through
the core filter which is an alkaline water
filter. In the filtering process, the pressure of the
water that has flowed out of the filter is increased,
and the water becomes saturated with oxygen and
nitrogen. When this water flows out into the air, the
pressure plummets and the oxygen and nitrogen get
supersaturated, which results in gas bubbles. The
water may temporarily look misty or cloudy due to
these oxygen bubbles. After a few seconds, the water
will look clear.
Please wait 1 second before removing the cup
after dispensing water to prevent spills.
Do not pull out the lever dispenser after dispensing
ice or water. It comes back automatically. Ice is made
in cubes. When you select “Crushed”, the ice maker
grinds the ice cubes into crushed ice.

the refrigerator. The water supply to this

CLEANING THE REFRIGERATOR
Cleaning the Rubber door seals
Caring for your Samsung French Door Refrigerator
prolongs the life of your appliance and helps keep the
refrigerator free of odor and germs.
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 dust or stains
by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and damp
cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
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 control panel
and digital display with a
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,
polish the exterior once or twice a year.
CAUTION

Do not spray water directly on the refrigerator.
Use a clean, damp cloth to clean.
Do not use benzene, thinner, or Clorox for

the appliance and may cause a fire.
You can erase the printed letters
on the display if you apply stainless
cleaner directly to the area where
the letters are printed.
Cleaning the Ice / Water Dispenser

it. Wipe the Ice / Water Dispenser with a clean and
soft cloth.
When using the crushed ice
selection from the dispenser

Troubleshooting
SOLUTION
The refrigerator
does not work at all
or it does not chill
sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Check if the set temperature on the digital display is warmer than the freezer or fridge inner
temperature. If it is, set the refrigerator colder.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation?
The food in the fridge
is frozen.
•
•
•
•
You hear unusual
noise or sounds.
•
•
•
•
The cabinet-door
sealing area of the
appliance is hot
and condensation is
occurring.
Ice Maker is not
producing ice.
Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low.
Try setting the refrigerator to a warmer temperature.
Is the temperature in the room too low? Set the refrigerator warmer.
Did you store the food which is juicy in the coldest part of the refrigerator? Try moving those items
to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping them in the colder areas or bins.
Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation?
Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 2 inches from the wall.
Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
If you hear a “ticking” sound from inside the refrigerator, this is normal. It occurs because various
parts contract or expand in response to temperature changes in the refrigerator interior.
• If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The
sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity.
03Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
• 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.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from refrigerant circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
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.
Frost forms on the
walls of the freezer.
• Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the stored foods for efficient air circulation.
• Is the freezer drawer closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
•
•
•
•
Auto close system
does not work with
the freezer door.
• Is there an imbalance between the right and left parts of the door?
• Open and close the door smoothly 1~2 times. After you do this, the auto close system usually
works properly again.
• Try opening the door smoothly to avoid unbalancing the right and the left part of the door.
Condensation or water
drops forms on both
sides of fridge door's
central part.
• Condensation or water drops may form if the humidity is too high while the refrigerator is
operating.
• If condensation or water drops appears on both sides of fridge door's central part, turn the Energy
Saver mode off after removing the condensation.
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 fridge temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the Digital display.
