DANGER
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
WARNING You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
CAUTION Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury, or product damage only.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury
and tell you what can happed if the instructions are not followed.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury to persons when using your
product, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the
following. Read all instructions before using this appliance:
3
NEVER unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the
plug firmly and pull it straight out from the outlet.
Repair or replace inmediately all electric service cords that have become frayed
or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage
along its length or at either the plug or connector end.
When moving your refrigerator away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or
damage it in any way.
Do not crush or damage the water line.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
Do not allow children to climb, stand, or hang on the refrigerator doors or
shelves in refrigerator. They could damage the refrigerator and seriously injure
themshelves.
Keep fingers out of “pinch point” areas; clearances between the doors and
cabinet are necessarily small. Be careful when you open the doors when children
are in the area.
Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making any repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be performed by a qualified
individual.
Introduction
Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, unplug the refrigerator or turn off power
at the circuit breaker or fuse box in order to avoid contact with a live wire filament.
(A burned-out light bulb may break when being replaced). NOTE: Setting either or
both controls to the OFF position does not remove power to the light circuit.
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment they may break when frozen,
causing damage.
The refrigerator-freezer should be so positioned that the supply plug is accessible
for quick disconnection when accident happens.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded. Have the wall
outlet and the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
This refrigerator must be properly installed in accordance with the Attention
Installer Instructions that were taped to the front of the refrigerator.
After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer
compartment when hands are damp or wet. Skin may adhere to the extremely cold
surfaces.
In refrigerators with automatic icemakers, avoid contact with the moving parts of
the ejector mechanism, or with the heating element that releases the cubes. DO
NOT place fingers or hands on the automatic icemaking mechanism while the
refrigerator is plugged in.
DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed completely. The United States
Department of Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
“...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if they still contain ice
crystals or if they are still cold below 40° (4°C).”
“...Thawed ground meats, poultry, or fish that have any off-odor or off-color should
not be frozen and should not be eaten. Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If
the odor or color of any food is poor or questionable, get rid of it. The food may be
dangerous to eat.”
“Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the eating quality of foods,
particularly fruits, vegetables and prepared foods.
The eating quality of red meats is affected less than that of many other foods. Use
refrozen foods as soon as possible to save as much of their quality as you can.”
DANGER
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still
dangerous... even if they will sit for “just a few days”.
Risk of child
entrapment
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER
Take off the doors.
Leave the shelves in place so that
children may not easily climb inside.
CFC DISPOSAL
4
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that used CFCs
(chlorofuorocarbons). CFCs are believed to harm stratospheric ozone.
If you are throwing away your old refrigerator, make sure the CFC refrigerant is
removed for proper disposal by a qualified servicer. If you intentionally release
this CFC refrigerant, you can be subject to fines and imprisonment under
provisions of environmental legislation.
This appliance contains fluid (refrigerant, lubricant), is made of parts and
materials which are reusable and / or recyclable. All the important materials
should be sent to the collection center of waste material and can be reused
after rework (recycling). For take back, please contact with the local agency.
Introduction
GROUNDING IMPORTANT: Please read carefully
REQUIREMENTS TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
WARNING
FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, this appliance must be
properly
grounded. Have the wall outlet and the
Electrical
circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
Shock Hazard
the outlet is properly grounded.
3-prong
grounding type
wall receptacle
3-prong
grounding
plug
Ensure proper
ground exists
before use.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
The refrigerator should always be plugged into it's own individual properly
grounded electrical outlet rated for 115 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only and fused at 15 or 20
amperes. This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house
wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. It is
recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off with a switch or pull chain. Do not use
an extension cord.
Where a standard two-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal
responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded threeprong wall outlet.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or removing a light
bulb, turn the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator Control or Freezer Control,
depending on the model) to OFF and then disconnect the refrigerator from the
electrical source. When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical
source and reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator Control or Freezer Control,
depending on the model) to the desired setting.
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly
recommend against the use of an extension cord. However, if you still elect to use
an extension cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed (in the United
States), 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord having a groundind type
plug and outlet, and that the electrical rating of the cord be 15 amperes (minimum)
and 120 volts.
Use of an extension cord will increase the clearance needed for the back of the
refrigerator.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its
service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid any hazard.

Feed water tube installation
Before
Installation
Automatic icemaker operation needs water pressure of 21.3~121psi(lb/inch2) (That
is, a 7oz. paper cup will be filled within 3 sec.).
If water pressure does not reach the rated 21.3psi (lb/in² or below), it is necessary
to purchase a separate pressure pump for normal automatic icemaking and cool
water feed.
Keep the total length of the water feed tube within 40 feet and be careful not to
bend or kink the tube. If the tube is longer than 40 feet, the icemaker and water
dispenser will not operate properly.
Install the water feed tube at a place free from heat.
Connect to potable water supply only.
Refer to instructions with water filter kit for installation.

Tools Required
If operating the refrigerator before installing the water connection, turn icemaker
to theOFF position to prevent operation without water.
All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
Use copper tubing and check for leaks.
Install copper tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain above freezing.
It may take up to 24 hours for your icemaker to begin producing ice.

Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a 1/4-inch saddle-type shut-off valve,
a union, and copper tubing. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve
complies with your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercing-type or 3/16-inch
saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
Installation
Connect
the Tubing to
Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure
on the line. It may help to open an outside faucet to allow the water to drain from
the line in the house.
3. Find a 1/2-inch to 1-1/4-inch vertical COLD water pipe near the refrigerator.
NOTE
•
Horizontal pipe will work, but the following precaution must be taken: Drill on the top of
the pipe, not the bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This also keeps
normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. To determine the length of copper tubing you will need, measure from the
connection on the lower left rear of the refrigerator to the water pipe. Add 7
feet (2.1m) to allow for moving refrigerator for cleaning. Use 1/4-inch O.D.
(outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both ends of copper tubing are cut
square.
5. Using a drill, drill a 1/4-inch hole in the cold water pipe you have selected.
6. Fasten shut-off valve to cold water pipe with pipe clamp. Be sure outlet end is
solidly in the 1/4-inch drilled hole in the water pipe and that the washer is
under the pipe clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws
carefully and evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Do not overtighten or
you may crush the copper tubing, especially if soft (coiled) copper tubing is
used. Now you are ready to connect the copper tubing.
7. Slip compression sleeve and compression nut on copper tubing as shown.
Insert end of tubing into outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw
compression nut onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not over tighten.
8. Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink, and turn ON main
water supply and flush out tubing until water is clear. Turn OFF shutoff valve
on the water pipe. Coil the copper tubing as shown below.

Set the icemaking stop switch to the ON position The icemaker will not begin
to operate until it reaches its operating temperature of 15 °F (-9 °C). It will then
begin operation automatically if the icemaking stop switch is in the ON
position.
The automatic icemaker makes 8 cubes at a time, 120/150 pieces per day.
But these quantities may vary according to circumstance, including ambient
temperature, door openings, freezer load etc.
The Icemaker stops when the bin is full.
•
•
CAUTION
NOTE
It takes about 12 hours for a newly installed refrigerator to make ice.
It is normal to hear a noise when ice drops into the bin.
- The first ice and water may include particles or odor from the feed water pipe or
feed water box. Throw away the ice.
This is also necessary if the refrigerator has not been used for a long time.
- Never store beverage cans or other foods in ice storage bin for the purpose of rapid
cooling. Such actions may damage the automatic ice maker.
- Never remove the icemaker cover.
- Shake the bin occasionally to cause the ice to settle.
11
- Ice may pile up just around the icemaker causing the icemaker to think that the ice
storage bin is full.

How ice/cold
water is supplied
Water is cooled while stored in the water tank in freezer door, and then sent to the
dispenser.
Ice is made in the automatic icemaker and sent to the dispenser.
Throw away the ice (about 20 pieces) and water (about 7 glasses) first made after
refrigerator installation.
This is also necessary when the refrigerator has not been used for a long time.
Cautions
Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may play with or damage the controls.
Be careful that food does not block the ice passage.
If foods are placed at the entrance of ice passage, the
dispenser may malfunction. The passage may also
become blocked with frost if only crushed ice is used.
Remove the frost that accumulates.
Storing cans or other items in the ice bin may damage
the icemaker or the container may burst.
Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken, and glass fragments could be in the ice.
Put ice first into a glass before filling water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added to existing liquid in a glass.
Keep your hands out of the ice door and passage.
You might break something or injure yourself.
Never remove the ice maker cover.
Shake the ice bin occasionally to level the ice in it.
Sometimes the ice piles up near the icemaker, causing the icemaker to misinterpret the
bin level and stop producing ice.
Never use too narrow or deep glass.
Ice may be jammed in the ice passage and, thus, the refrigerator may fail.
Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet.
A glass too close to the outlet may prevent ice from coming out.

Suggestion on Food Storage
Storing Foods
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an
important factor in maintaining it's freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which spoils easily at low temperatures, such as bananas and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in a container with a lid. This
prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator,
and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may be push against the inner racks
and could not be fully closed.
Freezer
Compartment
Refrigerator
Compartment
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrient.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer
shelf, not in the door rack.
Do not touch the cold foods or containers- especially made of metal -, with wet
hands and place glass products in the freezer compartment.
- That’s why you may have chilblains and they may be broken when their inner matters
are frozen, causing personal injury.
Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from direct
contact with chilled air.
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and
wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always
store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.

If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or
storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause condensation to form. Remove the
condensation with dust cloth free from care.

Care and Maintenance
General Information
Vacation Time
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 to store the refrigerator, remove all food, disconnect the power cord,
clean the interior thoroughly, and Block the doors open to prevent mold and mildew.
Be certain the stored refrigerator does not present a child entrapment danger.
Power Failure
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 You Move
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.
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 hot
refrigerant to prevent sweating on the outer cabinet wall.
AntiCondensation
Pipe
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Exterior
Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator. Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Interior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments with a baking soda
solution or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After Cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the power consent.
Warning
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (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
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
