cause an electric shock or fire.
Do not place this refrigerator in direct sunlight
or expose it to the heat from stoves, room
heaters, or other appliances.
Do not plug several appliances into the same
multiple power strip.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which has a
voltage rating that matches the voltage listed
on the refrigerator’s rating plate.
This provides the best performance and
also prevents overloading of house wiring
circuits, which could cause a fire hazard from
overheated wires.
If the wall socket is loose, do not insert the
power plug.
There is a risk of electric shock of fire.
Do not use a power cord that has cracks or
abrasion damage along its length or at either
end.

• DANGER : Risk of child entrapment.
Before you throw away your old
refrigerator or freezer:
Take off the doors and door latch.
Leave the shelves in place so that children
cannot easily climb inside.
Children trapped inside a refrigerator can hurt
themselves or suffocate to death.
Please dispose of the packaging material from
this product in an environmentally friendly
manner.
Ensure that none of the pipes on the back of
the appliance are damaged prior to disposal.
R-600a or R-134a is used as a refrigerant.
Check the compressor label on the rear of
the appliance or the rating label inside the
fridge to see which refrigerant is used for your
refrigerator.
If this product contains flammable gas
(Refrigerant R-600a), contact your local
authority in regard to safe disposal of this
product.
When disposing of this refrigerator, remove the
door/door seals and door latch so that small
children or animals cannot become trapped
inside.
Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
If trapped inside, the child may get hurt or
suffocate to death.
Cyclopentane is used in the insulation. The
gases in the insulation material require a
special disposal procedure. Please contact
your local authorities in regard to the
environmentally safe disposal of this product.
Keep all packaging materials well out of the
reach of children, as packaging materials can
be dangerous to children.
If a child places a bag over his or her head, the
child could suffocate.
SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING
• 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.

Saving Energy Tips
-
-
-
-
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 location with enough space for the
refrigerator doors to open easily.
• A location that allows sufficient space to the
right, left, back, and top for air circulation. If
the refrigerator does not have enough space,
it can cause the bad influence to refrigeration
efficiency and power consumption.
• A location that allows you to move the
refrigerator easily if it needs maintenance or
service.
• Do not install the refrigerator in locations where
the temperature is over 110 °F (43 °C) or

and can cause frost build-up.
Make sure the refrigerator is level so that you can
make final adjustments. Use a level to test if the
refrigerator is level both side to side and back to
front. If the refrigerator is not level, you will not
be able to get the doors perfectly even, which
may cause moisture condensation and increased
energy bills. Below is an example of how to level
the refrigerator if the left side of the refrigerator is
lower than the right side.
How to adjust the level

CAUTION
Both control levers must be touching the floor to
avoid possible personal injury or property damage
because of tipping.
If the right side is lower, perform the same
procedure, but with the right control lever.
It is difficult to remove the cover leg
front from the refrigerator, so we do not
recommend making small adjustments
with the control lever. Instead, refer to the
next page for the best way to make minor
adjustments to the doors.

MAKING MINOR
ADJUSTMENTS TO THE
DOORS
INSTALLING THE WATER
DISPENSER LINE
Remember, a leveled refrigerator is necessary
for getting the doors perfectly even. If you need
help, review the previous section on leveling the
refrigerator.
Adjustment
part
The left door is fixed. To make minor
adjustments between doors, adjust only
the right door.
1. Pull out the Convertible door ( 1 ) to expose
the lower hinge ( 2 ).
2. Insert a philips screwdriver (+) ( 3 ) into the
shaft ( 4 ) of the lower hinge.
SETTING UP
Fixed part
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. To do this, press the water
dispenser lever until the water runs from the water
outlet.
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 a ¼” compression nut.
3. Adjust the height by turning a philips
screwdriver (+) ( 3 ) clockwise ( DOWN ) or
UP
counterclockwise (
).
