NOTICE: NEW FREEZING ROOM TEMPERATURE FEATURE
How to Prevent Freezing
NOTE: IF YOU EXPECT THE ROOM TEMPERATURE TO FALL BELOW FREEZING,
AND YOUR REFRIGERATOR HAS THE ICE/WATER DISPENSER FEATURE
BUILT INTO THE FREEZER DOOR, OR HAS AN ICEMAKER, THEN YOU
SHOULD PERFORM THE FOLLOWING STEPS. THIS DEACTIVATES THE
ICE/WATER SYSTEM AND WILL PREVENT THE EXTERNAL WATER LINES
FROM FREEZING.
1. Disconnect power to the refrigerator.
2. Close valve on water line connecting refrigerator to main water supply.
3. Position a container under the refrigeration connection to collect any spillage and disconnect inlet
water supply line from refrigerator. Also collect water from the inlet supply line.
4. Position the container under the plastic outlet tube that supplies the icemaker (on Refrigerator
side) to collect any water spillage and disconnect the tube.
5. Position the container under the plastic outlet tube that supplies the water tank (on Freezer side)
to collect any water spillage and disconnect the plastic outlet tube.
6. Reconnect the icemaker and water tank tubes to the water inlet valve.
7. Turn off the icemaker (inside freezer) by moving sensor arm to the “UP” locked position.
8. Remove the front grille.
9. Position a container under the water line connectors located under the freezer, to collect any
spillage, and disconnect the two ends of the water line.
10. Allow water to drain from the two ends.
11. Reconnect the two ends of the water line.
12. Install the front grille.
13. Reconnect power to the refrigerator.
How to Restore to Normal Condition
NOTE: WHEN THE ROOM TEMPERATURE RISES ABOVE FREEZING, YOU CAN
REACTIVATE YOUR ICE/WATER DISPENSER SYSTEM BY PERFORMING
THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
1. Disconnect power to the refrigerator.
2. Reconnect the inlet water supply line to the refrigerator.
3. Open the valve on water line connecting refrigerator to main water supply.
4. Turn on the icemaker (inside freezer) by moving sensor arm to the “DOWN” unlocked position.
5. Reconnect power to the refrigerator.
6. Dispense water from freezer door. Throw away the first few glasses.

16
Operation
YOUR REFRIGERATOR HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO INCLUDE A FEATURE THAT WILL
PREVENT THE CONTENTS OF THE REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT FROM FREEZING,
EVEN IF THE ROOM TEMPERATURE IS BELOW FREEZING. THIS IS A TOTALLY
AUTOMATIC SYSTEM AND WILL REQUIRE NO ACTION ON YOUR PART. THIS SYSTEM
PROVIDES THIS FEATURE BY PERIODICALLY TURNING THE LIGHTS IN THE
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT ON AND OFF. THE WARMTH FROM THESE LIGHTS
WILL AUTOMATICALLY KEEP THE FOOD FROM FREEZING. THIS SYSTEM OPERATES
AT ROOM TEMPERATURES FROM 15°C. TO -5°C. THE SYSTEM WILL TURN ON THE
LIGHTS ONLY WHEN NEEDED. IF YOU SHOULD NOTICE THAT THE REFRIGERATOR

DEFINITIONS OF MALFUNCTION DIAGNOSIS CODES AND
CORRESPONDING CORRECTIVE MEASURES
(1) FREEZER COMPARTMENT MALFUNCTION: “FF”
Operation
• If the FF code flashes with a green light, this indicates that the freezer compartment interior
temperature has been unusually high for some time (2–6 hours). Check the following items
immediately:
• Check for objects that may prevent the freezer or the refrigerator compartment door from closing
completely.
• Minimize opening and closing of door to lower the interior temperature of the freezer compartment
quickly. If the reset key is pushed the FF light will go out and the diagnostic system will continue
checking for any other malfunctions. If the normal operation code key is pushed and the PF code light
comes on but the normal operation code light does not, there may be a power failure or another
temporary interruption of power source.
• Wait until it is cool to call for service (may take several hours).
(2) POWER SOURCE MALFUNCTION: “PF”
• If the PF code flashes with a green light, this indicates that the electricity has been interrupted for more
than 2 seconds. The freezer and refrigerator compartments should be checked. If the reset key is
pushed, the PF light will go out and a diagnosis can be made whether there are any other malfunctions
present. PF is not a mechanical malfunction.
(3) ICEMAKER MALFUNCTION (AUTOMATIC ICEMAKER): “CI”
• If the CI code flashes with a green light, this indicates that the automatic icemaker is malfunctioning.
Check the following items immediately:
• Is arm switch of the icemaker blocked by ice cubes? (Remove the ice).
• Is dedicated icemaker water supply valve open? (Open valve.)
• Is icemaker arm switch in the “ON” position with the water supply piping connection not properly
installed? (Set to “OFF.”)
• Is thickness of ice more than 1.2 cm? (If thickness of ice is less, open the valve wider to increase the
water supply.)
• If the reset key is pushed, the CI light goes out and a check can be made whether there are any other
malfunctions. If the CI light flashes again, a service call is needed.
(4) DEFROSTING MALFUNCTION: “dE”
• If the dE code flashes with a green light, this indicates that the defrosting operation has not been
performed during the past 64 hours.
• If this code flashes, a service call is needed for repair work.

STORAGE OF FOOD
(1) STORAGE OF FOOD
1. Provide space
between items in the
refrigerator. Packing
items too densely will
reduce circulation of
cold air, reducing
cooling.
2. If foods stored in the
freezer are not sealed
airtight, water
condensation could
occur on the surface
of the refrigerator’s
cold walls and
dampen contents by
dewing. Therefore,
when storing, use
airtight containers or
plastic wrap.
(2) WARNINGS ABOUT FOOD STORAGE
1. Bottles should not be stored inside the freezer because they may break.
2. Do not store plasma or vaccines in this refrigerator. In addition, volatile or
flammable substances should never be stored in refrigerators.
3. Avoid leaving the door open. Do not open and close the door unnecessarily.
4. Do not store hot foods without cooling them first.
5. Do not store ice cream in the door pocket.

When storing foods, place items requiring colder temperatures (meats, cakes, etc.) near the cold air
inlet, while placing items which are not to be subjected to dewing or icing (vegetables, fruit, etc.) in
the lower areas.
Beer and juices should be stored in the door pockets, while butter and cheeses should be stored in the
upper portion of the door (astro-door type utility compartment) where the temperature is relatively high.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT FROZEN FOODS
(1) METHODS OF SELECTING AND USING STORE-BOUGHT FROZEN FOODS
There are approximately 3,000 varieties of frozen food on the market
at the present time. Store-bought frozen foods are wholesome, high
in nutritional value and easy to prepare. Spoilage or food poisoning
are of no concern. The most attractive feature of frozen food is its
longevity (1–3 months). As long as you have frozen items on
hand in the freezer, it is easy to prepare a splendid meal on short
notice, with minimal concern should unexpected guests drop in.
Operation
• TIPS FOR SELECTION
1. Select items preserved in a showcase, indicating a temperature
below -18°C.
2. Select items with an approval label from the Japan Frozen Food
Association.
3. Select items with the latest manufacturing date.
4. Select items with proper shape and that are frozen hard.
5. Select items without torn wrappings.
6. Avoid items with obscured view of contents due to excessive
frosting. They may have been re-frozen.
• TIPS FOR THAWING
1. Thaw only the amount needed. Only the needed portion should
be thawed by breaking the selection into small pieces or cutting
it with a saw.
2. Do not thaw completely. The correct stage for cooking is
reached when edges become soft but the core is still frozen.
3. Food should be cooked as soon as it is thawed.
4. Use the appropriate thawing method prescribed for each
particular food.
(2) BASIC THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT HOME FREEZING
• THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FREEZING
1. Food items should be fresh. Freshness is most important to
ensure tasty frozen food.
2. Cool food before freezing. If a hot item is placed inside the
freezer, the freezer will warm up, affecting other food items.
3. Always seal products in an airtight container or wrapping in
order to prevent changes in food. In addition, liquids should be
stored in containers with extra volume to accommodate
expansion.
4. Freeze single servings measured according to the size of your
family.
5. Arrange in thin packages and freeze quickly. The trick for good
home freezing is “quick freezing,” which is why packaging
should be thin.
6. Set freezer dial to HIGH cooling (9). Return dial to original
(normal) setting after freezing is complete.
7. Door should be kept closed as much as possible.

‘96 SPECIFIED FREON
REGULATION
REFRIGERATOR
THIS MARKING ON A REFRIGERATOR DENOTES THAT IT IS A
“PRODUCT THAT MEETS THE ‘96 SPECIFIED FREON REGULATION.”
Refrigerators use Freon for their freezing apparatus and heat insulators. Freon is
non-flammable and not harmful to the human body directly. Furthermore, it
possesses excellent properties which have made it one of the most useful chemical
substances and contributed to the development of modern civilization.
In its capacity as a cleaning agent, propellant, and for its use in refrigerators,
however, it is thought to have caused the depletion of the atmospheric ozone layer.
The decision was made to cease worldwide production of this substance completely
and to switch to a substance which has less impact on the ozone layer.
