MAJOR FEATURES
TDM System (Time-Divided-Multi-Evaporator system)
• Each compartment has an evaporator. Also Microprocessors and a
refrigerant-control-valve control the refrigeration cycle. The 4 evaporators enable improved efficiency and humidity in the fridge. Food odor
from the refrigerator does not affect food in other compartments
because the cooler and air flow systems are separate.
Multi-Flow System
• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every shelf level. This provides even distribution of cooling inside cabinets to keep your food
fresh longer.
Door Alarm
• Beeper reminds you that the door is open.
Xtra FreshTM
• Optimized humidity control keeps vegetables & fruits fresh.
Arctic Select ZoneTM Drawer
• Arctic Select Zone Drawer is convertible from freezer to refrigerator
by TDM system. You can select Power Freeze, Freeze, Soft Freeze,
or Cool according to foods.
Fresh Select ZoneTM Drawer
• You can select Soft Freeze, Chill, Cool or Fresh according to the food
stored.
In Cool and Fresh, the humidity is controlled by TDM system.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 20 ~125 psi (0.138~0.862Mpa) is required.
In this range, a 6 oz paper cup can be filled in 10 secs.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you should install a
booster pump to compensate.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled initially. Push the water dispenser
lever until the water runs from the outlet.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
A universal water supply kit is available at extra cost from your dealer. The refrigerator manufacNOTE turer recommends using a water supply kit containing copper tubing.
31
INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
Connect the water line to the refrigerator.
1) Slip the compression nut and plastic ferrule
through the plastic tube.
2) After inserting the sleeve, tighten the compression nut onto 1/4” compression fitting(union).
NOTE
Do not overtighten the compression
nut.
Compression fitting

3) Slip the compression ferrule and nut on copper (or plastic) tubing as shown.
Tighten the compression nut onto the compression fitting(union).
4) Turn water on and check for any leakage.
NOTE
Compression Nut
Ferrule
Sleeve
Water line must be connected to drinkable water only.
Cut off 1/4 inch squarely to prevent leaks when reconnecting.
Install the water filter.
1) As shown, open the cartridge cover by pulling and pushing up at the front
NOTE
The water filter cartridge is located at the upper right corner of the Fridge compartment.
When the display in the control panel indicates “filter change”, it is recommended that the filter cartridge be changed.
2) Remove the water filter from the box then position the arrow of the cartridge in line with the cartridge cover.
Under the high water pressure, water may drip from the water filter’s case.
NOTE If you put the small tray beneath the filter cover hole, it will be helpul to clean the shelf.
3) Insert the filter as shown and Push until you hear a click.
NOTE
Be sure to align the filter cartridge hook and housing.
4) Close the filter cartridge cover.
NOTE After changing the filter cartridge, throw away the first six glassfuls of water to flush out trapped air.
Do not push and pull the water cartridge repeatedly, as water pressure will make the water spurt.
32
INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter.
1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off the valve of the
water supply line.
2) Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear
(6~7 minutes). This will clean the water supply system and
clear air from the lines.
3) Additional flushing may be required in some households.
4) Open the fridge door and check if water leaks around the
water filter.
NOTE
WATER
ICE
• A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly spurt from the dispenser.
Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray.
ICE BUCKET
2) Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water line to
clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will
stop producing ice.
It is normal for several cubes to be joined
together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will
become cloudy, taste stale and shrink.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1) To remove : Set the type of ice to the “Ice Off” position. Lift up
(①) and pull out (➁) the ice bucket in the freezer.
To replace : When replacing the drawer, be sure to press it firmly into place. If it does not go all the way back, remove it and
rotate the drive mechanism 1/4 turn. Then push the drawer back
again.
INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
3) Important Facts About Your Dispenser :
Do not add ice from trays or bags to the storage bin. It may not crush or dispense well.
Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice can jam the
chute or cause the door in the chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute, poke it through with
a wooden spoon.
Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser opening.
Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you selected CUBES. This happens occasionally
when a few cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip from the chute.
4) Water Supply to the Icemaker :
The icemaker must be connected to a cold water line.
5) Start the Icemaker :
Set the type of ice to the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position. The icemaker will not begin to operate until it reachs its operating of 10.4°F( -12°C) or below. It will then begin operation automatically if
the type of ice is in the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position.
NOTE
• If there is no water supply, turn off the icemaker to save energy.
• In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to make sure
enough water reaches the icemaker.
