- Deteriorated insulation of electrical parts may cause
an electric shock or fire.
•Do not place this refrigerator in direct sunlight or
expose to the heat from stoves, room heaters or
other appliance.
•Do not plug several appliances into the same
multiple power strip. The refrigerator should always
be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet
which has a voltage rating that matches the voltage
listed on the refrigerator's rating plate.
- This provides the best performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits, which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
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.
Water line installation kits are available at extra
cost from your dealer. We recommend using a
water line installation kit that contains copper tubing
and ¼” compression nut.
Connecting to the water supply line
1. First, shut off the main water
supply.
INSTALLING THE WATER LINE
Connecting the water supply line to the
refrigerator.
There are several items that you need to purchase
to complete this connection.
You may find these items sold as a kit at your local
hardware store.

COMPLETING THE SET UP
Now that you have your new refrigerator installed in
place, you are ready to set up and enjoy the features
and functions of the appliance. By completing the
following steps, your refrigerator should be fully
operational.
1. Make sure your refrigerator is in an appropriate
location with reasonable clearance between it and
the wall. Refer to installation instructions in this
manual.
2. Once the refrigerator is plugged in, make sure the
interior light comes on when you open the doors.
3. Set the Temperature control to the coldest
temperature and wait for an hour. The freezer
will get slightly chilled and the motor will run
smoothly. Reset the refrigerator and freezer to the
temperatures you want.
4. After you plug the refrigerator in, it will take a few
hours to reach the appropriate temperature. You
can store food and drinks in the refrigerator after
the temperature is sufficiently cool.
02operating
3. Turn water on and check for any leakage. If you
find water drops or leakage in the connection
areas, turn off the main water supply. Check the
connections and, if nescessary, tighten.
4. Flush 1 gallon of water through the filter before
drinking or using the water from the refrigerator.
(Flush approximately 6 minutes.) To flush, press
a large glass or cup against the water dispenser
lever. Fill the glass, empty it into the kitchen sink
after it is filled, and then repeat.
5. After you turn on the refrigerator, let the ice maker
make ice for 1 to 2 days. Over that period of time,
throw out the first 1 or 2 buckets of ice the freezer
makes to ensure all impurities have been removed
from the water line.
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.

- There is enough ice in the ice
bucket.
- You want to save water and
energy.
- Water is not being supplied
to the refrigerator.
designed to work ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water
Filter.
The Filter light turns red to let you know when it is
time to change your water filter cartridge.
To give you time to get a new filter, the red
light comes on just before the capacity of
the current filter runs out.
(Red)
Changing the filter on time provides
you with the freshest, cleanest water from your
refrigerator.
1. Shut off the water supply. Then, turn the water
filter ( 1 ) about 1/4 turn, counter-clockwise.
2. Pull the water filter ( 1 ) from the case filter ( 2 ).

• To change the water filter more easily, shut
off the water supply valve.
• Sometimes, it is hard to disassemble the water
filter because impurities in the water cause it to
stick. If you are having difficulties, grip the water
filter firmly and pull it hard.
• When you pull the water filter, a little water
can leak from the opening.
This is normal. To minimize the water leaks, keep the
filter cartridge horizontal
when you pull it.

Removing any residual matter inside the
water supply line after installing the water
filter.
1. Turn ON the main water supply and supply water
from water supply line.
2. Run water through the dispenser until the water
runs clear (approx. 6 to 7 minutes). This will clean
the water supply system and remove air from the
lines.
3. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.
4. Open the Refrigerator door
and make sure there are no
water leaks coming from the
water filter.
Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly,
otherwise water may drip from the
dispenser.
This means that there is still air in the line.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT : The pressure of the water supply
coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to
the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be
between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to
be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa.)
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system
is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the
reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace
the filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill after heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when used
in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.
Remove the water filter.
If you have questions about your water pressure,
call a licensed, qualified plumber.

while it is in the refrigerator. Remove it to clean it.
CAUTION
When you insert the Ice maker tray, be sure
that the tray is well centered at the entrance.
Otherwise, the tray may be stuck.
Water clouding phenomenon
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.

Troubleshooting
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
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.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
the refrigerator.
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?
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.
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.
• 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 refrigerant 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.
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 part 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.
