Setting Up _17 01 SETTING UP Freezer Drawer Setting up your French Door Refrigerator INSTALLING A WATER LINE KIT 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. For the ice maker to operate properly, a water pressure of 20~125 psi is required. Within this water pressure range, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) cup fills 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. 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. 2. L ocate the nearest cold water drinking line and install the pipe clamp and shut off valve. Cold water line Pipe clamp Shut off valve 3. C onnect the water line installation kit to shut off valve. Check for leaks, then go to Connecting the Water Supply Line to the Refirgerator on the next page.

Slip the compression nut through the supplied plastic tubing . 2. T ighten the compression nut onto the 1/4” compression fitting. - If you are using copper tubing, slip the compression nut (not supplied) and ferrule (not supplied) on copper tubing (not supplied) as shown. - If you are using plastic tubing , insert the molded end (Bulb) of the plastic tubing into the compression fitting. CAUTION Do not use without the molded end (Bulb) of the plastic tubing . 3. Tighten the compression nut onto the compression fitting. Do not over-tighten the compression nut . 4. T urn the water on and check for any leakage. If you see water drops or leakage in the connection areas, turn off the main water supply. Check the connections, and tighten more if necessary. 5. L et 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 ice maker makes to ensure all impurities have been removed from the water line. 6. C heck again for leaks. If you see water drops or leakage in the connection area, turn off the main water supply. Check the connections, and tighten more if necessary. Only connect the water line to a drinkable water source. If you have to repair or disassemble the water line, cut off 1/4“ of the plastic tubing to make sure you get a snug, leak-free connection.

Operating _33 02 OPERATING Fatty Fish (mackerel, trout,salmon) Operating your French Door Refrigerator CLEAninG tHE REFRiGERAtoR Caring for your Samsung French Door Refrigerator prolongs the life of your appliance and helps keep the refrigerator from odor and germ. Cleaning the Interior C lean 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 W ipe the control panel and digital display with a damp, clean, soft cloth. Do not spray water directly on the surface of the refrigerator. T he 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 use benzene, thinner, or bleach for cleaning. They may damage the surface of the appliance and may cause a fire. CAUTION Printed letters on the display may be erased if the stainless cleaner is applied directly to the area where the letters are printed. 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 dust or stain by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth. CAUTION Do not clean the refrigerator with benzene, thinner, or car detergent due to risk of fire. Cleaning the rear side of the refrigerator T o keep cords and exposed parts free of dust and dirt accumulation, vacuum the rear side of the appliance once or twice a year. CAUTION Do not remove the back cover( 1 ). It may cause an electric shock. 34_ Operating 1 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 freezer or fridge inner temperature. • If it is, set the refrigerator temperature 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. • 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 other shelves in fridge instead of keeping them in the colder areas or bins. You hear unusual noise or sounds. • 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. This is normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding as the result of changes in the temperature of the refrigerator’s interior. •If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The sound is caused by ice cubes rubbing in the bucket periodically. The cabinet-door sealing area of the appliance is hot and condensation is occurring. •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. Ice Maker is not producing ice. • • • • 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? 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. 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.
