feed water box. The should also be done if the refrigerator has not been used for a long
time.
Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may push the dispenser switch incorrectly, or damage the dispenser by
breaking associated parts. It may also cause them injury.
Always ensure that food does not block the ice chute.
If foods are placed at the entrance of the ice chute, ice may not be dispensed. The ice
chute may become covered with ice powder if crushed ice is most commonly used.
Remove the accumulated ice powder.
Never store beverage cans or other foods in the ice storage bin for rapid cooling.
This may damage the automatic ice maker.
Never use fine crystal glasses or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken.
Put ice into a glass before filling with water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added after the drink.
Never touch the ice outlet either with hands or any implement.
Touching the ice outlet may cause a breakage or hand injury.
Never remove the ice maker cover. It might be necessary from time to time to level
the ice so the storage bin can fill to capacity.
If ice is allowed to pile up near the ice maker, the ice maker may think that it is already
full and it will stop producing ice.
If discolored ice is dispensed, stop using the appliance and contact your serv-ice
centre immediately.
Ice may be jammed in ice chute causing the refrigerator to fail.
Never use narrow or deep glassware when using the icemaker
as ice can back up into the ice chute and cause a malfunction.
Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet.
A glass too close to the outlet may hinder ice from coming out.

General information
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator in
operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer life. When you plan not to operate,
remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave
each door OPEN to prevent odour formation.
And won’t use water or ice dispensers, close the water valve. - Otherwise, water
leakage may occur.
Vacation time
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the
power is off.
If the products equipped with LED Lamp, do not disassemble Lamp Cover and LED
Lamp by yourself. - Please contact your service agents.
Power failure
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator. To avoid
damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
If you move
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation. Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which
pumps through the refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.
Anti

Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn’t make. Because the
sounds are new to you, you might be concerned about them. Most of the new sounds
are normal. Hard surfaces, like the floor, walls and cabinets, can make the sounds seem
louder than they describes the kinds of actually are. The following sounds and what
may be making them:

Suggestion for energy saving
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odours. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Use a luke warm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator. Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Exterior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments with a baking soda solution
or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
Interior
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the wall outlet socket.
After cleaning
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning near to electrical
equipment (lamps, switches, controls, etc.). Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or
cloth to prevent water or liquid from getting into any electrical part and causing an
electric shock. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners,
strong alkaline solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface. Do not
touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick to
extremely cold surfaces.
CAUTION
o not directly spray water inside or outside the refrigerator. - There is a risk of fire
D
or electric shock.
• Do not spray cleaning products directly on the display. - Printed letters on the display
may come off.
• Remove any foreign matter or dust from the power plug pins. But do not use a wet
or damp cloth when cleaning the plug, remove any foreign material or dust from the
power plug pins. - Otherwise there is a risk of fire or electric shock.

Smart Diagnosis
Should you experience any problems with your refrigerator, it has the capability of
transmitting data via your telephone to the LG service center. This gives you the
capability of speaking directly to our trained specialists. The specialist records the data
transmitted from your machine and uses it to analyze the issue, providing a fast and
effective diagnosis.
ENGLISH
Model: GSL54*****, GSP54*****
GWL31****, GWP31****
If you experience problems with your refrigerator, call to the LG service center.
Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center
agent. The transmission sounds that you will hear are normal and sound similar to a fax
machine.
Smart Diagnosis cannot be activated unless your refrigerator is connected to power.
If your refrigerator is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting must be done without
using Smart Diagnosis.
First, call to the LG service center. Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when
instructed to do so by the LG call center agent.
