Saving Energy Tips
ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR
PROPER USAGE
-
• In the event of a power failure, call the local
office of your Electricity Company and ask how
long it is going to last.
- 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.
- Should the power failure last more than 24
hours, remove and discard all frozen food.
• The appliance might not operate consistently
(frozen contents can thaw or temperatures
can become too warm in the frozen food
compartment) when sited for an extended
period of time in a location where ambient
air temperatures are constantly below the
temperatures for which the appliance is
designed.
• In case of particular foods, keeping it under
refrigeration can have a bad effect on
preservation due to its properties.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there
is no need to manually defrost your appliance.
This will be carried out automatically.
• Temperature rise during defrosting complies
with ISO requirements.
But If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of frozen food while the appliance
defrosts, wrap the frozen food in several layers
of newspaper.
• Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed
completely.
-
-
-
Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with
adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight
and never put it near a direct source of heat (a
radiator, for example).
Not to block any vents and grilles is
recommended for energy efficiency.
Allow warm food to cool down before placing it
in the appliance.
Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the
frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
Do not keep the door of the appliance open for
too long when putting food in or taking food
out.
The shorter the time the door is open, the less
frost build-up you’ll have in the freezer.
It is recommended to install the refrigerator
with clearance to the back and sides. This will
help reduce power consumption and keep your
energy bills lower.

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 the water or destroy
microorganisms. You may need to purchase a
water purifying system to do that.
The water line also connects to the ice maker.
For the ice maker to operate properly, water
pressure of 20 ~ 125 psi (138 ~ 862 kPa) is
required.
If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low
water pressure (below 20 psi), 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.

CHANGING THE WATER FILTER
(2)
WARNING
(3)
To reduce risk of water damage to your property
DO NOT use generic brands of water filters in your
SAMSUNG Refrigerator.
3. Insert the new filter into the filter case ( 4 ).
4. Push the filter, and then turn it clockwise until
it locks.
(Red)
SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work
ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filters.
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.
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.
• If you have trouble inserting the water
filter because of high water pressure,
shut off the water supply valve.
• The locked symbol should be lined up with the
indicator line.
OPERATING
USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND
WATER FILTERS. SAMSUNG is not
legally responsible for any damage,
including, but not limited to, property
damage caused by water leakage
from the use of a generic water filter.

5. Touch and hold the “Alarm / Filter Reset” button
for about 3 seconds to reset the water filter
indicator.
The indicator’s red light will turn off.
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.
• To prevent overflow, empty the water filter tray
( 3 ) and dry around the filter case ( 2 ).
6. If you turned off the water supply, turn it back
on.
For a replacement water filter, visit your
local home Improvement center or visit
Samsung’s parts distributor on line at:
http://www.samsungparts.com
Be sure the replacement water filter has
the SAMSUNG logo on the box and on the
water filter.

Removing any residual matter inside the
water supply line after installing the water
filter.
1. Turn ON the water supply if you turned it off
when you installed the water filter.
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.
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 if 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.
Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly,
otherwise water may drip from the
dispenser.
This means that there is still air in the line.
